I got kicked out when I was 17. My mother and I didn’t get along. My mother has some mental problems. I still love her though… Since I got kicked out and I was still in high school, I started to be a stripper because it got the bills paid. Well a couple years after that I responded to an ad on Craigslist looking for dancers for a bachelor party. They said they just needed one more girl and the pay would be good. So I drove 3 hours away to where this “party” was. When I got there. I asked if I could see the money upfront so I knew that it existed. And I knew something was up because there was no other girls there.
I started to panic.
They said they had a gold plated necklace they would give me for my time.
When I told them that I didn’t want to do it for jewelry and needed the cash. They told told me tough s***. I got raped anal and vaginal. It hurt so bad. I tried to scream but they covered my mouth. I tried to move and nothing helped. I couldn’t believe it. I was so scared that I was going to get killed when it was all said and done.
The 1st chance I got I ran out the door as fast as I could.
That day will always haunt me.
