Have to admit, was freaked out of my mind. Perhaps the glance did it. Sometimes it makes you wonder why things happen how it happens and a second or two really will make all the difference.
When he came up behind me and said hello in a deep accent, already knew had to walk as fast as I can towards the crowd and not turn around. On hindsight, should have turned around and tell him to go away. Maybe that is what was lacking.
“Hey I alighted for you! Why are you walking away from me?”
Was so freaked that my pace grew by a mile and inch. One escalator after another, was hoping that when I do turn around, would not see his grinning face anymore. Then I saw it. As my heart pounded on like the drums during the annual procession. The feeling was not good. Not good at all.
More than 24 hours later, am still feeling slightly freaked.
