Beggar Spends All His Money to Buy Food for Girl Lost in Subway, she came back to see him next day

A kind beggar puts a little girl’s interest above his own and spends all his money to feed her after finding her lost at the subway station. The next day, the girl comes to meet him and drops a bombshell: “Man, you should try singing in one of the city’s pubs. I haven’t seen somebody this good in a long time. Better still, I have a friend in the music business. I’ll put you in touch with him the next time I see you.

“Thank you so much, thank you, thank you!” everyone cried as Steve gratefully acknowledged the applause from the people in the subway. They didn’t know he had once wanted to be a musician, but things had turned out so bad that he was now homeless, playing accordion and singing songs for a living. But as the saying goes, everyone’s life turns around one day, albeit late. Steve’s moment came too, one day after his musical performance.

Steve hurriedly packed all his belongings and decided to get off at the next stop and enjoy a meal with the money he’d made. Luck had been a little too kind to him that day, and he’d earned more money than he usually did. As the train arrived at the station, Steve gathered his stuff and headed to the subway stairs, looking forward to a pleasant day ahead. He had no idea fate had other plans for him. As Steve headed towards the stairs in a hurry, he dropped something and turned around to pick it up.

Suddenly, he noticed a little girl who didn’t appear older than six stepping out of the train, looking around in confusion and crying. She was wearing two pigtails and carrying a bag on her shoulders, and there were no elders around her. “She’s so young and alone,” Steve wondered as he looked at her and finally approached her. “Hello there, little miss. Can I help you with something?

he asked her in the softest voice. She nodded, still crying. “I lost my daddy. I can’t find him anywhere.” “Oh, did you?

What’s his name or how does he look? I can help you find him,” Steve said. “Mommy calls daddy Andrew, but I call him daddy, and he’s very handsome,” she said, and Steve nodded carefully. “All right, so we’re gonna find out Andrew pretty quickly. But before that, you must stop crying because no daddy likes to see his pretty daughter crying, okay?

But how will I find Daddy? I can’t see him anywhere,” she said, worriedly. She kept crying, and the weather was cold. Steve didn’t want to leave the girl alone at the station. He decided to take her to a nearby cafe and treat her to something hot and nice, thinking that would calm her, and she’d be able to tell him more about how she got separated from her father.

Then he would contact the authorities and let them know about the situation. “My name’s Steve, by the way. What’s your name? Would you like to have a delicious hot chocolate before we find Daddy? But Daddy said not to do anything for strangers.

What if you’re a bad man?” Steve laughed. “But don’t bad people hurt kids? I don’t want to hurt you. I want to help you find your daddy.

The little girl stared at him for a while, then nodded. “Okay, but we’ll come back soon. I love hot chocolate, but I need to find Daddy too.” “Sure, sure, miss, as you say,” Steve smiled. At the cafe, Steve spent all the money he’d earned that day, knowing he’d have to go to sleep hungry that night.

But somehow, watching the girl eat gave him the satisfaction that he’d done a good thing. While little Mia devoured the burger and hot chocolate, Steve kept asking her details about her father. Thankfully, her crying had stopped, so she could properly share what had happened. It turned out Mia’s dad had decided to take the subway to drop her off at school, but due to the intense crowd at the station, they got separated. She didn’t know what to do when she didn’t see her dad around, and she started to cry.

Though Steve now knew what had happened, he was still worried about how he’d find Mia’s dad. He thought about calling the cops, but Mia’s dad would surely be looking for her at the station. So after leaving the cafe, he returned to the subway station and decided to report the incident to the authorities. But before he could do that, he suddenly heard an announcement over the intercom that Mia’s dad was looking for Mia. “We found your daddy!

Come on!” he scooped her in his arms in a hurry to the announcement booth. Suddenly, Mia started shouting and waving her hands. “Daddy, I’m here! Hold him, he’s there, he’s there!

Andrew cried as he ran up to Steve with his security and snatched Mia up from his arms. “How dare you touch her? Stay away from her!” “But sir, Daddy, Mia and I found you. Don’t be mad at him.

He got me a burger and hot chocolate. Steve’s nice, just like you. He didn’t hurt you. I asked,” Andrew, confused, and Mia shook her head. “He’s not a bad man, Daddy.

“I might be homeless, but I’m not a bad person at heart, sir,” Steve added defensively. At that point, Andrew felt horrible for doubting Steve. He realized he shouldn’t have accused him like that. In return for taking care of Mia, he wanted to reward Steve, but Steve refused to take any money. “It’s okay, sir,” Steve said.

“I’m just glad I was able to help. While I can’t afford much, I have a heart too.” Before leaving the station that day, Mia waved goodbye to Steve, and Andrew thanked him again. The next day, Steve was back in his usual position on the subway, singing his songs. As he ended his performance, he saw a little hand reaching into his begging hat and dropping a small box in it.

Steve looked up and smiled. Mia! Thankfully, this time, she wasn’t alone but with her parents. “Hi there, sweetheart. What are you doing here?

Steve asked. “Stephen, I came to give you a gift. You helped me, so I want to help you too. But you can’t say no to my help. That’s the rule,” she said.

“Oh, is that so?” Steve laughed and picked up the box to open it. He unwrapped the box and found a set of keys inside. “What’s this?” he asked.

“It’s your new home, Steve!” Mia cried. “No, Steve’s eyes welled up. No way, is this real?” “You deserve it, Steve,” Andrew said, appearing behind Mia.

“You’re a selfless man who helped my daughter. This is just a small gift. It’s a mobile home. My company specializes in these. I hope this will help and take you to different places.

“Chirp, Mia. Good always comes back with good, Steve. My mommy and daddy taught me that. You did good, so you got good,” she added and hugged him, making Steve smile through his tears.
