“Are you OK?”
- After raping me and throwing me on our bed. My cheek was throbbing but I knew it was over so I said “Yes”.
“You shouldn’t have been @ that place without my permission”
“Do you want to play house?”
The tears I cry aren’t tears of sadness, they are tears of RELIEF.
“When you sober up, don’t freak out.”
“Don’t worry, boys are supposed to like this.”
“Does that feel good?”
I was 3 years old.
“Hey, wanna have some fun?”
I was 8 or 9. He was 17 or 18. I can’t really remember much.
