“I was scared as hell for the next few days…”

“I was meeting a friend who lives only ten minutes from home, It was around 10 at night and there weren’t too many people on the street. As usual, when I am walking on my own, I listened to music, because I like music, but also in order not to hear the stupid comments. Anyway, so I was walking and at a corner, I pass a guy who looks at me. Nothing special, I continue my way and suddenly I see a shadow on the sidewalk right behind mine! The tiny second that it takes me to realise what is going on is enough for him to put his hand under my dress (not a short dress by the way) and grab my ass. I was just too shocked to do anything and just froze, he ran off. I only stood there thinking about whether start screaming or crying or whatever. The worst part is, that that idiot didn’t even run quickly. I saw him again several days later, he recognized me and started to follow me in the street, luckily people were between us, but he followed me to my house and saw me walk in. I was scared as hell for the next few days…”
