Almost

"Adik, ayah mana? Nak tumpang pakcik?", said a guy who was I thought in his thirties... He was riding a rather old motorcycle and wearing a dirty plain grey t-shirt and jeans... 

If my memory serves me right, I was a standard three student at that time and I was walking home alone because Abah didn't show up to fetch me after I waited for him for around one hour... 

"Cepat la naik... Pakcik hantar pergi rumah..." 

My mind immediately had a flashback of all the stuff I read on kidnappings and molestation... Thus, I refused the guy's offer and walked away... 

Still riding his motorcycle, he followed me... At that time, thanks to the tips I got from movies and cartoons, I thought of using the things around me as weapons... The first thing I thought of picking up was a rock as big as the size of my palm... 

Abah suddenly appeared from far, also riding a motorcycle... "Pakcik, tu Abah saya..."

Without saying a thing, the guy turned around his motorcycle and left in a hurry...

Wow... If I was dumb enough to follow that guy, I could have been kidnapped or molested... He could have taken to the oil plantation and raped me... 

It was lucky for me for the guy only rode a motorcycle and therefore, his modus operandi would rely heavily on persuasion... If he was driving a van or car, he could have just dragged me into the vehicle and driven away... 

Therefore, dear parents, teach your kids to always be smart when dealing with strangers... Ask your kids to wait inside the school if you're running late to pick them up... Lets avoid the worse from happening...
