Holy shit! I just got jumped! This has never happened to me before. It makes you think about whatís really important when something like this happens. I canít believe I got jumped by six guys! They were huge! They didnít even touch me.
Iím fine, really, Iím ok. I had a real good scare. I was walking
around at night by myself. It was dark and a car pulled up next to me.
I kept walking. One dude got out and followed me for a few steps. He asked
me if I knew how to get to Coney Island. ďNot by car,Ē I said. Then he
asked me again and thatís when I knew something was up. ďNo, sorry, not
by car,Ē I said again. I kept walking, going on with my plans of walking
around alone at night. Then he asked me again. ďDo you know how to get
to Coney Island?Ē As if to say -- ďYou better tell me.Ē I turned
around and tried to explain that I only knew how to get there by subway.
As I started to speak the doors of the car opened and five other very large
dudes got out and ran at me as fast as they could. They were looking me
over and sizing me up as they ran. I knew this was it. Itís my turn to
get mugged and beaten. My first thought was to run but I didnít. I stood
calmly. I remember thinking I was going to loose my teeth. Thatís what
I thought first. Iíll be missing some teeth, probably the front ones. They
were running at me and the original Coney Island guy got around behind
me. I was getting ready. It was a quick time shift from walking with my
thoughts to a moment from being smashed, kicked, and robbed. My attitude
was to ďsee what happens.Ē I knew then and I know now that I cannot take
on six tremendous dudes but I wanted to try. My instinct told me not to
run. So I didnít. Each furious step of theirs was another towards my beating
and bleeding. As they were about one step away I took a half of a
lean to the side and they kept going. They flew past me. Never touched
me. Never took anything from me. I stood in disbelief, adrenaline
pumping, and I felt exhausted.
