    I went to the market today.

    With my mom. And my brother. After we've done paying the things, I was the last one to go out. Before I could even step outside, the guard came to me and smiled, "You're very beautiful, ma'am! I mean it!" I went home with a big grin on my face. People have told me before but I...
