When I was 8 years old my 16 year old cousin was my best friend. He would always be there for me and my other cousin. Except one day he took us out to his place while everybody was out. He had me and my cousin give him oral until he got what he wanted. The next time I visited, he took me to his room and touched me. He said I was a good girl. Two weeks later, he raped me. It has been 8 years and I haven’t told anyone. When I learned what sex is, I kept telling myself I didn’t have it. I do not want to tell people, not because I am scared because if I do it will no longer be my story to share. I will always be the girl who was raped. I don’t need that. I don’t want that.
