Getting out of the sun and into the air-conditioned home

I can feel sweat dripping down my back as I strolled down the scorching hot sidewalk.

The sun was pretty brutal beating down on me, and I wanted nothing more than to be free of the rays beaming down on me.

I just wanted to get home and sit in my cool air-conditioned house. I started to walk faster, hoping to get to my front door as quickly as possible. My gaze was fixed on the doorknob, and extremely excited while reaching for it. Right before I touched the handle, I heard a faint scream. This little girl was standing on the opposite side of the street. She seemed a bit disoriented and scared. Her face was flushed from the heat and I knew I had to do something. As I came up to her as was sobbing and I can tell that she had a hard time breathing most likely due to the heat. I took her hand and walked her to a close tree where it was shady. As we sat in the cool grass, I realized that getting into my air-conditioned home didn’t matter anymore. This issue seemed to be far greater. I asked her what was going on and she said she ran out of her house because their air conditioning broke and the HVAC technician wouldn’t be able to make it to her house until tomorrow. She was tired and upset. About a minute later her parents showed up, panicked and scared that their daughter was missing. I told them they can come into my house for a bit with their daughter to feel the air conditioning and from that moment I made a new friend. I was glad that I was able to help in this time of need.
