When I first saw him, he just seemed to be a normal guy, like all the others in the neighbourhood. Indeed, he was one of the cute types, but in our area most of them are either softies or Mommy’s darlings. Too young for a serious relationship, and too immature to understand what a girl really needs. But then one day, I was about to go home from a friend’s place, a group of guys came upon me and started to harass me. They wouldn’t let me go and said rude things. I usually don’t feel impressed by those lads, but after one of them grabbed my arm firmly, I began to feel uncomfortable… until he came! He took off his shirt, and hit badly out on the boys. I felt my skin tingle, as it was the first time I saw a man half naked. He punched their bodies, broke their noses and blood surged all over their faces. I couldn’t believe my eyes… what a man!
