The couple who live opposite our unit has a 10-year old son who is mentally challenged. Physically and facial wise, he looks pretty normal, albeit he is really huge for his age. He is fat and tall and looks like a teenage boy. Mentally, I think he is slow or challenged. He used to attend a private school but his mother has now switched him to home-schooling, conducted privately. Each time we bump into this boy (who is always with an Indon maid), the boy will strike a child-like conversation with me or with my girls. Many times, he ran straight into our unit and said that he wanted to play with mei mei (little sisters) repeatedly and refused to come out of our house. Honestly, my girls and I are quite terrified of him because of his size and knowing that he is mentally challenged, he may even hurt us if he is provoked verbally or physically (IF). His parents are very well to do and they have a driver to chauffeur them around but they would leave the boy at home alone with the Indon maid. Many times, the door of their unit will be left opened and the boy is free to go in and out of the unit, sometimes without the maid accompanying him. Each time I see their door opened, my heart would skip a beat, fearing that the boy would ‘pounce’ on us again.
Two nights ago, while I brought the trash to the refuse room outside our unit, I bumped into my neighbor and we started to chit chat. Suddenly, her son ran out of the house like a mad boy and put his hand round my shoulder! Then, with another hand, he wanted to grope my boops but I moved back to avoid his hand! I wanted to run away but tried hard not to blow the situation out of proportion and make my neighbor uneasy. I did not want to hurt my neighbor’s feelings or the boy’s by over-reacting. I am quite a drama queen alright. The boy’s mother reprimanded B (the boy). Seconds later, he moved his hand towards my down under as if to grope it and I retreated more. Alycia who was with me quickly walked away and hid behind me. O_o, the situation was kind of tensed and both B’s mother and I felt really uneasy and we had to end the conversation. Gawd, that was scary! Though he did not manage to touch my private parts, he did put his hand round my shoulder. I told the hubs about it the next morning and he was shocked to hear the story and to add salt to injury he scared me by saying that the boy is now ‘preying’ on me, waiting to attack / r*pe me! ** rolls eyes** He told me not to bring the trash out to the refuse room anymore and just leave the rubbish outside our unit for him to throw…. when he comes home. Sometimes, I do not lock our front door during the day as the security at our condo is very tight with 24-hour guard patrolling and CCTV but now, I better keep the door locked at all times just in case I wake up to find a naked boy next to me!! Knock on wood!!
