It was a hot day and Simon was thirsty. He had been walking for hours and his water was long gone. He saw a sign for a restaurant up ahead and quickened his pace, hoping to get there before they closed.
As he got closer, he could see that the restaurant was closed, but there was a man sitting outside in the shade. Simon approached him and asked if he knew where he could get some water.
The man told him that there was a water fountain a few blocks down the street. Simon thanked him and began to walk away, but the man called out to him, telling him to wait.
The man reached into his pocket and pulled out a small canteen. He handed it to Simon and told him to drink up. Simon was so thirsty that he didn’t even bother to thank the man, he just unscrewed the cap and downed the whole thing in one go.
The man smiled and told Simon to have a safe journey. Simon nodded and set off down the street, feeling much better now that he had some water.
