“I cried for the rest of the subway ride.”

When I was 20, I was walking down the stairs into a subway, in broad daylight. Some punk kid followed me down and when he saw it was deserted, he grabbed my ass. I wheeled around on him and started screaming and backed him into a wall, but then I became so afraid that he might do something that I ran off. I cried for the rest of the subway ride.
