My husband wasn’t kidding when he told me that our neighbourhood was getting more dangerous by the day. Having seen countless arguments, fights, car collisions as well as murder in broad daylight on our street, I thought that things would die down for a while. Until yesterday. I thought nothing of it when I saw three teenagers lurking outside a coffee shop directly opposite my window at three in the morning when I was in the middle of a long distance online lesson. The next morning, I was told that the cafe had been robbed. And I’d seen what the boys looked like. Luckily, no one was hurt and the shop lost its takings for the day. I’m a little taken aback by the whole situation especially when as always, life moves on and the coffee shop remained open for business as usual. I’ll be sleeping with one eye open for now.
