What exactly is a guy asking when he says
"Just a simple question... Will you?"
it was only that one question without any other backgrounds or pretexts. He basically just came up to me to ask me that.

Without context the question means nothing.
1. Do you know the guy?
2. Your relation to him, or how and where do you interact. (classmates, co-workers, acquaintances)
3. Has he asked anything of you before? (favors, advice)
Without the context of "What" he's asking you can't really answer it and for him to ask such a vague question he may be too scared of the answer to really even want to know which is why he asked it that way.0
