Got scared

It was 9:30pm. I was walking on a street with the fastest path as it was dark and quiet. Suddenly, a guy approached me to ask for a cigarette. I politely told him that I don't smoke. He has to gut to ask:"Why don't you give me some money so that I can buy some at the cafe?" You got it right, I said no right away and just turned around and start walking. And you know what, I heard him asking "Why?"

I was speechless. I don't know why I should buy a stranger a cigarette. And I don't know where the nerve he got to even ask this question.

When I walked away, fear took over me. What if he decided to stalk me or grab my bag or keep following me?

The moral of the story: don't walk alone during the night if you man is not with you.
