Today’s Guest Post is by Geanna Culbertson, author of the Crisanta Knight Series. The second book in this young adult fantasy adventure series (The Severance Game) will be released December 6, 2016 and will include a curious inscription of appreciation. Keep reading to learn more about a woman named Ever Lee.
A few months ago I accompanied my mom to an appointment. While I waited for her, I decided to explore the surrounding area. It was morning and I was hungry, so I elected to find myself some treats. The choices came down to a Chinese food place and a doughnut shop.
I chose the latter.
Upon going inside my face was hit with a glorious waft of sugar and coffee. Having selected my pastries and ordered a cup of joe, I went to the register to pay. However, it was then that I realized I’d forgotten my wallet at home.
I apologized to the cashier, saying that I had to cancel my order, but then someone intervened. A woman with dark curly hair and a pleasant face ahead of me offered to pay for my food and my coffee.
Naturally, I was in shock. She didn’t know me. People didn’t usually work this way. But there she was, a kind woman named Ever Lee who insisted she’d buy me my breakfast.
It was a wonderful gesture of kindness to experience. Since all I had on me was my laptop (always the writer, I carry it with me just about everywhere), I offered to give her a shout out in the second book in my series—Crisanta Knight: The Severance Game—which is set to be released on December 6, 2016. And all she asked from me in return was that I pay it forward and continue to pass along the kindness.
To sum up, it was a delightful human moment, and we should always try to pay it forward.
