So to add another post count

I feel like I mustn’t let the month pass with only 3 posts, so here’s a story of what happened on Saturday…

After work, I was waiting to have dinner with a friend, who was late, and I arranged to meet her at Flinders station and I was at Melbourne Central.

Seeing as it was Easter Saturday and the trams, when they do come, would be crowded, I decided just to walk to Flinders, seeing as I had over an hour to wait, and it wasn’t bad weather.

As I was passing the Subway right outside of Melbourne Central, I passed a guy who started saying something to me. I had my music in, so I took it out to see if maybe he was asking for directions.

“You know I’d straight up go out with you, yeah do you like me?”

And then I realized that I’d made a mistake.

“See ya later, mate,” I said, trying to dismiss him, and walked a bit faster. Unfortunately, he kept following me.

“Come on why not?”

I kept on walking, and at the next light, I crossed the road and walked into QV. I gave myself until the end of one song before I turned around to check…and saw that he was still following me. Losing patience, and somewhat getting a bit creeped out, I barked, “Stop following me, man!” He did a weird smile, so I just turned around and walked faster, hoping that the people around me can both mask me, and act as a deterrent to him.

After weaving through downstairs QV, back up, around the back of QV and out onto Russel Street, then back onto Swanston (thank God I knew the place), I crossed my fingers and hoped he wasn’t still following me.

He wasn’t.

That was the first time I’d gotten a semi stalker.

I didn’t like it.

Day 6 – A Stranger

Dear Stranger:

I have yet to meet you, but maybe you already know who I am. Okay, I know that’s creepy, but I don’t know everyone who knows me. Either way, I don’t know you.

Considering that I’m nearing my 19th birthday still single, I would dare say that my future partner is, at this moment, still a stranger. So, to you, stranger, I wonder if we’ll be great together?

To all those other platonic strangers out there: hey! I may seem weird at first but I implore you to give me a few moments, talk to me, get to know me, and you’ll see that “weirdness” is really just a sort-of-anagram of “awesomeness”.

Anyway, there isn’t really much I can say to someone I don’t know exists, so I shall end it here. But if you’re reading this and I don’t know you, feel free to drop a comment and say hi!

Alex.
