Knight in shining normal

Posted on Thu, Dec 4, 2014 at 4:00 AM

[Image-1 Four am, "Sunday morning" (we all know it was still Saturday night), you (guy) were walking down Preston Street and I (girl) had just pulled up to my house. I got out of my car despite the looming possibility of rape since I was tired and had my keys in hand to defend myself if need be. You made eye contact and said "Hello," just like any other normal person would at any other normal time of the day. I felt stupid for fearing the worst. Thanks for being the kind of fellow who makes a gal feel safe at night. There should be more normal, non-rapey seeming people like you out after 1am. —Night owlette
