Jaymes protested vehemently when I told him to do the experiment. He felt awkward and was worried that the hookers would drag him to a hotel. Seng assured him that he would be following closely behind.
I made Jaymes wear a school uniform (not his school's) and carry a backpack. I hid a recorder in his pocket. Jaymes was breaking into cold sweat. I pushed him out of the door.
From the apartment above, I could see Jaymes walking slowly down the busy street. He would sometimes look up at me. I was hiding behind the curtains.
From the moment he walked onto the street, the women noticed him & some went up to him. The women either grabbed his arms or embraced him. You could see Jaymes cringed in discomfort. hahaha....
He was shaking his head a lot. And he tried to pull his arms away from their grip or push them away from him. All the women spoke to him, & then some let go of his arm and turned their attention to others. Some clinged on to him, trying to persuade him. You could see Jaymes struggling to break free from their clutches. When he finally left one, he would immediately be pounced upon by others.
It looked like it was going to be a long journey down this short street for Jaymes. It went on for a good 15 minutes. I could sense that Jaymes was getting worried that he might not be able to get to the end of the street. He was getting desperate & began to quicken his steps.
Suddenly he was accosted by an older Chinese woman. She was plump & dressed in a tight tube & mini skirt. She held his left hand & started talking animatedly to him. Jaymes tried to pull his hand away. He shook his head several times and tried to walk off. She grabbed his arm with both hands as she continued talking. She started pulling him to one side.
Feeling panicky, Jaymes looked up to me for help, he seemed to be pleading. He was frightened. I was prepared to rush down when Seng approached the woman. He spoke to her and she released her grip on Jaymes. She was cursing loudly in Mandarin. Ah, a China woman. (From her accent.)
Seng put his arm around Jaymes and brought him back safely upstairs.
When Jaymes entered the apartment, he was pretty shaken. He looked plae. He was drenched in his own pespiration. "What!? You looked like you've been raped!" I exclaimed.
He glared at me & slumped down on the sofa. Seng got him a drink while I removed the recorder from his pocket. I rewind the tape & listened to the conversations that took place earlier. I was particularly interested in what the older China woman said to him.
Below is a translation of the conversation.
Woman : Hello. Little handsome boy, looking for some fun? Let me play with you!
Jaymes : No. No.
Woman : Aiya, don't be shy. I teach you some new tricks so you can impress your girlfriend.
Jaymes : No. Don't want.
Woman : Come! Come! I'm very experienced. How much money do you have?
Jaymes : Don't want. I have no money.
Woman : Don't bluff me. You come here to have fun but have no money? I give you special price. Guaranteed you will be very happy with my service.
Jaymes : Don't want! I'm going home for dinner.
Woman : OK. OK. S$10. S$10. OK? Come to my room. Come. Come. Come.
Jaymes : No! No! No! I have no money! No! (sounding hysterical. hahaha.... )
Woman : Come! I will give you such good service that you will come back again. Try lah!
(Seng stepped in at this juncture.)
Jaymes is going to have a nightmare tonight. hahaha..... And he said I'm a sick mother. muahahaha........
