It was just a normal day for four skaters, but they found something was off about a girl and her father on the way home. These brave teenagers decided to dig out the secret. Read on to find out what exactly happened!
On an ordinary day, four skater boys gathered together in their old place, the skate park at an underground parking garage. It seemed everything was going to plan, but then something unexpected happened as the night fell…
As they were packing up for home, they came across three people. An emaciated girl in dirty clothes walked past them toward the parking garage across the lawn, and two well-dressed middle-aged men followed after her. What happened next kept the boys on their toes.
She didn't look well at all: her nose was bleeding, and she was sobbing with her bloodshot eyes full of tears. When they were about to leave, they heard a heartrending scream. Even if they couldn't see her trembling shoulders and dim eyes, they sensed her desperation and desire to escape. They hesitated…
"We had to know what was going on." The boys decided to go back to ask for an explanation. Even though they outnumbered the men, they were too small and weak. Would they get an answer, or would they be savagely beaten?
Luckily, the boys were not threatened. They instead got the answer. "I'm her father," said a man who stepped forward and said in an unquestioning tone. Her father? The boys immediately backed off a bit and reassessed the situation. The girl made no refutation. Maybe this was a family business, and they should just leave?
If it were a family issue, then it had nothing to do with them anymore. With a quick exchange of looks, the boys were ready to go. It was late, and they had been intimidated enough. It was time to leave to forget the frightening experience. However, could they just go back to daily life as if nothing had happened?
The image of the girl's intoxicated appearance and her so-called father's arrogant attitude stayed in their minds. The more they thought about the whole thing, the more they felt suspicious: Did the girl even know the men? What did they plan to do in the parking lot? Once again, the boys jumped up and decided to go back.
The boys' instincts were perfectly accurate. The man who claimed to be the girl's father was actually the leader of the FOB gang. The gang is notorious in Calgary and has become a headache for the police department. The local police had long wanted to apprehend the leader, but somehow he escaped every time. This time, would the boys be the superheroes who saved the day?
As the boys dashed back to the outside of the parking lot, there was no trace of the men or the girl. Looking at the dark and bottomless garage, they couldn't help trembling, yet they knew that they had to go down there. No one knew what awaited them in the darkness, but these brave skaters had already passed the point of no return.
Without any security guards, the Calgary city's dark underbelly seemed emptier than ever. It took them a long while to find the stairwell hidden in the CCTV camera's blind spot. "This could be the only place," thought the boys as they held the door handle tight. At that moment, they felt a fine layer of sweat running down their backs.
As the boys pressed down the handle, the stairwell door swung open. There they were! For a moment, everyone was rooted to the ground. Within a second, the big men rose to their feet, aggressively shoved the "intruders" aside, and fled. Would the two men run off just like that?
Absolutely not! Despite their fears, the boys decided to leave one with the girl and the others to follow the men. As the chase went on, the men started to lose their temper. Suddenly the bigger man turned around, grabbing the boys' skateboard to attack them. Almost at the same time, he was knocked over by a shadow that came out of nowhere.
It turned out to be police officer Arther Doner, who had received a tip of the gang leader's location and was already lying in wait. Little did he expect to see three boys fighting with the man, but luckily, he showed up in time to keep the boys safe. However, they couldn't relax, for they'd let the gang leader's companion escape. Who knew if he would take revenge on the boys?
Just as the boys were on their way home, they began to receive incessant phone calls. It must be the convict's partner! They froze in fear and disgust, and no one dared to pick up the phone. Even under the cover of darkness, they still felt utterly exposed to the man. The phone rang over and over again...
They finally got up the nerve to answer the phone. It was from the police office. "We would like to thank you all for today, and officially invite you to the Chief's Award Gala," said Chief Chaffin. With a hint of fear still lingering on their faces, the boys looked at each other and laughed a hearty laugh.
So they went to the Chief's Award Gala, held by the Calgary Police Service annually to thank their brave citizens. The boys were honored for displaying commitment and courage and making Calgary a better place to live. It was their kindness and bravery that eradicated a plague on the city.
Helping people in need is always the right thing to do. It is, nevertheless, even more honorable to help them, when we also fear for the possible consequence. With courage and a sense of justice, we can contribute to society's betterment just like the boys did.
