Too Close

Hi, this is awkward but it feels great to share about this. these events continued over a series of years. When I was 6 years old my brothers friend asked me if I wanted to go to his house because my brother was there so I said sure this boy was 16 so he had a car. He drove me to his house and he told me that my brother was in his room but that we were going to get a drink first so he gave me a glass of water so I drank it and I started to feel tired and blurry. I asked if I could lay down on the couch and if he could get my brother he said ok. I fell asleep and I woke up tied to a bed in a sprawled out position each limb tied to a bed post. I didn’t know what was happening because I was six. I called out and the boy came in. He said that my brother went home but that I could stay over and play so he told me that I got hit on the head and lost some memory but that I broke a window with my head (being 6, I believed him) so he said that he had to punish me at that point all my clothes were ripped off and on the floor. He took of his pants and choked me with his penis. I told him to stop and that I’d be good from now on but he kept doing that same move until he ejaculated in my mouth and he said that my mom called so I should get my clothes on. I was terrified. I didn’t know what to do but he drove me home and my brother asked where we had been that he’d been worried sick. His friend said we went to get ice cream but later that night I told my mom and she contacted the police and the boy got arrested. But that’s not all. When I was 10 I got stolen from my dads car while he went into the dollar store to get soda. When he came out I was gone and he thought I had went to the bathroom so he waited there for a while then contacts done store manager and they couldn’t find me. Meanwhile this man (late 20’s) took me in his car and took me back to his house he locked me in a closet and this time I knew what it was. It was happening again. The man stripped me and tied me to a chair with my legs spread so wide that it hurt. I cried out for help but no one came. After the event he threw me out on the street and I went to the neighborhood next to his and got help. My parents were contacted and the man was never found……..

***** If anything like this ever happens to you then please tell someone if I hadn’t of told so,done I would be dead because I remember my brothers friend said: “I’ll see you in a couple years. If you make it through that then I’ll set you free” that scared the absolute shat out of me. So don’t ever not say anything. SPEAK UP!
