There was a young man named Sali from province to work in Phnom Penh.
Sali rented a room and stayed alone. He stayed for 5 days already.
Where he stayed, there were two buildings which their behind faced each other. Sali's room had window and at opposite building, there was another room and its window faced with Sali's window.
Every evening, when Sali came back from working, he usually saw a young girl, about his age, standing at that window. She wore green T-shirt and she looked down through the window. Sali wondered what she was looking at for it had nothing down there, just land and some bushes. Moreover, Sali noticed she stood without moving and she presented herself from 5:30 PM until 5:30 AM.
