Naive

I was a freshman in high school so it was the world to be dating a senior. Until you get passed the fact that he’s just 4 years older and that he is mentally and verbally abusive. Not to mention the boy cheated on me. But he had me so convinced that no one would ever love me that I still talked to him. I left him many times but that didn’t keep him from banging on my window several nights out of the week. I would let him in because I didn’t want my mom to hear and talk him into going home. One night though, he came plastered and again banging on my window. I let him in to try to talk to him and convince him to leave but he hit me so hard and pinned me down. I tried screaming and then he choked me. I kicked and squirmed but I couldn’t get him off of me. He hit me a few more times until I just laid there and waited for it to be over. When he was done he ran out and I never spoke to him again even though he constantly tried to contact me. I never told my mom because I knew she would be mad I let him in in the first place. I’ve never been able to trust anyone since.
