Friend?

It happened when I was 15, I am now 16. I’ve known this friend for my whole life. Trusted him with everything. But my trust for him changed.

I was sitting on my couch waiting for my older brother to get home. He is really close with my brother. Once my brother got home I noticed he had a friend.

I was sitting down watching a show on Netflix. I was covered in sweats and a long sleeve. Then my brother’s friend came and started talking to me. And I wasn’t going to be rude to him so I answered and talked to him. After talking to him for a few minutes when back to my brother’s room and stayed there for about 10 minutes and came back. He looked at me and sat down next to me. I was really uncomfortable. Then he started to touch my leg and I told him to “stop”. He didn’t stop. I pushed his hand away and he grabbed my chest. At that point I knew I needed to get up. I got up and he grabbed my wrist really tight. It left a hand mark. He pushed me down to the couch and got on top of me. He kissed my neck, pulled my shirt down and went down to my chest. I was scared. I told him to leave me alone and tried pushing him off. But he was too strong. I tried screaming but he put his hand over my mouth.

After he was done touching me, he went back to my brother’s room. I turned off the TV and went into my room. Once I was in my room I heard my brother’s door open. He noticed that I went into my room because I heard him open my door. He walked in and I pretend that I was asleep. But I wasn’t. I heard him leave my room and heard my brother’s door open and close. Once my brother’s door close, I started sobbing.

To this day, I never told my family. Only my guy best friend.
