The Phone Number

As I was struggling to find my way back home, just when I was about to reach to my pocket to take out my phone, i felt a wrinkly piece of paper tingling my hand inside the pocket. I didn’t remember putting anything like that to my pocket so when I took it out to read it, i-I was a bit shocked. In the note what was written was “Call me as soon as possible, here is my number “ but the only problem was in the note, the last digit of the phone number was scratched out but I wasn’t the one that did it. I was quite the curious one so I tried all the numbers from 1-9 to find the corrects digit. And I saw none of them worked, so I decided to try the only number that I haven’t tried, it was “0”. As I pressed the number, my curiosity began to grow, after I dialed the number and pressed call, the only thing left for me to do was to wait patiently for the person to pick up. After a while, finally someone picked up the phone, the person sounded like a old grumpy man who was in their late 60’s. He said “Hello?” and I answered back with, “Sorry sir, were you the one that put this note to my pocket without my knowledge?”. “Huh?” The man whimpered, “Of course I wasn’t, I  don’t even know you are, I’m just an old man trying to spend my last years on this earth peacefully..” I stopped and suddenly hang up the phone, I don’t know why but I just felt guilty for disrupting this man, I guess it was just a prank after all…
