As he approached the street-facing side gate of his house, he couldn't help but notice the bag of pastries hanging from it. Although the gesture might have seemed harmless to an outsider, Elordi found it unsettling since he had no idea who left the pastries or why they chose his house to leave them at.

Elordi then confronted Furo and called the police after he left his property. As a result, he was able to obtain the license plate number of the stalker.

Wanted you to tell me if you have been sending. I found you on a beautiful Saturday afternoon quite organically without address without getting lost like this time. Would it be possible if you could call. My hands are shaking."
