3 Pedestrians

I can’t take that image out of my head.
The busyness, the day showed, was unusual. 
There was more sweat in the air, more people on the roads. 

Traffic signals fluctuated between red & green. 
A flower vendor was seen tapping at a car window, making an attempt to sell.

It seemed like a typical lazy afternoon, when...
3 pedestrians suddenly rushed in. They tripped over the flower vendor and made way to the other side of the road. The flower vendor fell on the car bonnet, earning an angry look from the driver.

Nobody bothered, why the 3 pedestrians rushed. 
Nobody noticed what happened when the flower vendor fell over the bonnet.
The angry look from the driver came to light, but nobody checked on the reactions, the car owner gave.
Something was amiss, somewhere……

1 man closely monitored the sequence of events. 
He knew what preceded and what would follow. This man, who orchestrated it, had a grin on his face.
“After 3 takes, they had finally got the shot right”
