I was about 10-11 at the time. I used to go to my local gym for swimming lessons but I was too young to use the men’s change room. So I forced to use the family change room. It was least taken care of and smelt like mold. Anyways there was always this old man and he’d come with 2 kids about the same age as me but he’d always ask me “ exited to swim” or “ I watch you from the back you’re quite good “. We had a place for parents to sit while their kids swim but why was he watching me ? Why not his grandchildren?. At the time I didn’t think anything of it. Now before every swim I’d go inside the showers and clean myself because I think swimming pools are gross enough as they are, so id wash myself off before a swim. The shower doors had these washroom stall doors you know with an opening at the bottom and top. While I was taking the shower I looked down and saw feet dangling like someone was hanging from the door that’s when I looked up and saw the old man barely hanging on the door watching me. I yelled and he ran so quick I heard the door slam. I never told my mom because I only had a couple lessons left. But every time I take a shower I can’t help but think about what could’ve happened.
