Pepper’s post reminds me of a similar incident that happened in my life.
This is about the time when I had just stepped into the junior college. If you recall I had mentioned sometime back that all throughout I’ve been scared of dealing with guys who followed me to home,those who wrote chits and gave cards to me in the middle of the road etc. I used to come home and cry like hell for what had just happened,even if a guy just stopped me and asked for my name and on me not saying anything went away. All this was quiet scary affair for me. On the other front I was a tom boy,not fearing anyone but all this only when I was in the company of my friends and family 😛
Okay so there was this guy who followed me like the Mary’s lamb. Only breather was he never stopped me to talk,just walk behind me. So instead of getting scared I got bugged with him. I started changing my routes to classes,to friends’ homes and probably I also started showing signs of discomfort,if I were asked to go fetch something from a shop near by,which my parents noticed. One day daddy asked me what was wrong with me and like a little girl I told him about this guy. Daddy says okay.Nothing less,nothing more leaving me little bit confused.
After about 2-3 days daddy says let’s walk to the near by store. I thought it was one of those usual walks together that we took often. Once around the store I saw the guy with his other guy friends and my body language changed. I felt awkward. Me and daddy bought what we wanted to and while coming out of the store,he pointed his finger to the group of guys and asked out loud ‘is this the guy who follows you?’ and I was like ‘whaaaaaaaaat?’ and I felt exactly the way Peppy felt!!!!
That time it was a feeling of embarassment but today while looking back it’s nothing but a silly joke to me which never fails to bring on a broad grin to my face 🙂
Well,yes the guy was identified and that day after I never ever saw him following me again though we crossed each other a lot of times. I didn’t even saw him looking at me while passing by Daddy,I tell you!!!!
