It started at 6, I used to live with my grandma me my parents and my two cousins. My cousin was 15 when he started touching me, he would kiss me put his hands in my pants and touch me, put his fingers inside me and make me perform oral sex on him.

At ten, me and my parents moved out and I thought it was over until I was 15. A few weeks before my 16th birthday, he came to my house because my grandma kicked him out and he need somewhere to stay the night. He was 21. Now my parents where divorced and my mom worked nights to pay the bills, of course he stayed and my mom went to work. That night he came into my room and said he brought over a birthday present for me and started unbuckling his pants. I told him to get out but he climbed into bed and got on top of me. He pulled down my underwear and forced himself inside of me. I was screaming and crying but and he laughed and said nobody can hear me.

He raped me hard and violently, for what felt like hours. Then after he finished, he left and went downstairs. I just sat there crying and bleeding puddles of blood stained my mattress.

That night he took everything from me, my life, my confidence, my self esteem, my self worth and my virginity. I never told anyone my story but this website inspired me to let it out. Thanks, I feel a little weight lifted from me.
