One Friday afternoon, I went to the mall to get some really important stuffs. Well, I also needed ingredients to prepare another dish after my ex-boyfriend destroyed the last one I prepared. oh! and yes I broke up with him because if I eventually get married to him, my children and I would be suffering from lack of food not even lack of enough food.

i don't want my children looking like smeagol.

I picked a trolley and strolled down the different section of the mall looking for the exact section I needed to get my stuffs. While strolling down, I caught  site of an old dude, let’s say ranging from 40-45 scratching his “down department” if you know what I mean. my face ran to the back of my head when I saw this.

the site of that made me look like this.

Although there was no one in that section to experience the horror with me. I know people do that, but common, there’s always somewhere private to do that not in a public place like the mall. lol. Anyways I strolled away to get my stuffs. When I was done with the shopping, on my way to the counter, I bumped into the old dude. The thought of what I saw earlier made me shiver a little bit. “I’m sorry to have bumped into this pretty face”, the old dude said smiling. This time, when I saw his set of yellow teeth, I almost passed out. I know I’ve not got the best set of white teeth but oh my, this one was an understatement. Could this day have gotten any worse. He stretched out his hands for introduction, “my name is John”, he said.

This went on in my head

I simply said “I’m big benny” without touching him and was about to walk away when he said, “I like you, can I get to know you”, this time, I didn’t hide my disgust. I’m like dude, you’re old enough to be my father and walked away.

Finally, I paid for my stuffs and went home. My apartment was just five minutes walk from the store so it wasn’t stressful getting home.

I got home and went straight to my bed.

I went to bed looking like this.

About to doze off, something annoying happened. The doorbell rang. OMG!!!! who could be this now? I said to myself as I peeped through the door hole. To my surprise the old dude I met in the mall was standing there just smiling with his hands behind his back.

this was the look on my face when I saw him

A lot of things went through my mind. “shit!!! what the hell does he want now and how did he even get my address”, i thought.

I opened the door and saw him smiling as he brought out the flowers he was hiding behind his back. “I want you” was the first thing that came out from his mouth.
