Once when I was a kid of maybe ten years of age, I hitched a ride behind a man on a scooter because the bus was taking too long. I never took a lift from anyone before but that day I had some plans with friends so I thought I should get home faster.
It was a big mistake, because not 5 minutes into the ride he started asking me some very personal questions and made me very uncomfortable. I knew enough to know that what he was asking was abnormal; he tried passing it off saying he’s a famous sexologist (I didn’t even know what that was) and tried molesting me reaching one hand around to the back and controlling the vehicle with the other. I was struggling and tried moving far back but couldn’t as it was a scooter and I was afraid of falling too. So I couldn’t escape his clutching fingers.
He then went on to say “Oh I forgot a file back home, do you mind coming back with me and getting it?” I said “No, I’m getting late, please let me down here and I will go”. He dropped me off and went away. I shudder to think what would have happened if I’d have gone where he wanted to go.
