16. Hearing Men’s Voices In The Background / Les voix d’homme en bruit de fond

When I was in Spain (Chapter 21), while we were chatting on Skype, sometimes Kevin could hear my neighbours leaving their apartments. However, if Kevin heard men’s voices, he would freak out. He would think that I had men in the house.

Other times when I was outside and talking to him through my mobile phone, he would also freak out if he heard men’s voices in the background. One time, I was at the beach and a group of loud men came to sit nearby and he could hear them when I was on the phone with him. He started to freak out. He was questioning how far they were from me and whether they were talking to me. Then one of them blew a wolf whistle which was actually directed at another one of their guy friends as a joke. Kevin freaked out so much. He thought that they were blowing the whistle at me and he told me to move away from them. I did move, but not because I wanted to “obey” him, but because the guys were too noisy for me to hear anything over the phone.


Quand j’étais en Espagne (Chapître 21), alors que nous discutions sur Skype, parfois Kevin pouvait entendre mes voisins quitter leur appartement. Cependant, si Kevin entendait des voix d’hommes, il paniquait. Il pensait qu’il y avait des hommes chez moi.

D’autres fois, quand j’étais à l’extérieur et que je parlais avec lui au téléphone, il flippait aussi s’il entendait des voix d’hommes en bruit de fond. Une fois, j’étais à la plage et un groupe d’hommes bruyants est venu s’asseoir à proximité et il pouvait les entendre alors que j’étais au téléphone avec lui. Il a commençé à paniquer. Il m’a demandé à quelle distance de moi ils étaient et s’ils me parlaient. Puis l’un d’eux à siffler à l’attention d’un de ses amis pour blaguer. Kevin a vraiment flippé. Il pensait qu’ils me sifflaient et m’a demandé de m’éloigner d’eux. J’ai bougé, mais pas parce que je lui « obéissais », mais parce que les types étaient trop bruyants et je n’entendais plus rien au téléphone.
