"You've started wearing tudung right? Looks cuter. :) "
Oh ha'ah. Thank you.
"Truth is, I've liked you since I saw you at *****... But I didn't have the urge to tell you because I don't think I have a chance. And you nampak garang."
Oh yeke. Tak adalah pun.
"Did you notice me watching you?"
Entah. Didn't really notice.
"GREAT! I managed to keep it a secret then. I've never told anyone about this except you."
"You must be surprised to know this right?"
(I decided not to reply much further.)

Oh yes. VERY SURPRISED.
Such a confession I heard yesterday. That came from someone I barely talked to. I feel flattered... A bit. But at the same time it was scary. Imagine being stalked. Imagine being watched all the time. And besides, as I said before I've never talked to this guy before. Okay, maybe a sentence or two regarding work matters but not more than that. I'm a focused worker.
I don't know. Maybe I'm over-reacting.
Oh. Maybe because I'm not used to being secretly admired. Yeah, that's why. It just felt weird.
