Is the sentence bellow possible? Why is might being used here although the sentence is in the past? Shouldn't it be "Might have" instead?

You said hey. I said hello.

A: "I gotta know, do you feel this way?"

You said: "yeah I do, but I was scared of what you might say"


Might is past tense (although sometimes used in the present tense as well).

  • I am scared of what you may say.

  • I was scared of what you might say.
