My Cousin Jenny
She was 16 at the time and we went to visit her house for the weekend. I was about 10 at the time and was shocked to hear my aunt tell my parents that Jenny was going to get her "*** busted" I thought 16 was way too old She explained to them that Jenny had skipped school and had been hanging out with gang bangers and getting high. My cousin Tracy and I were talking to Jenny in her room when my aunt came in with a belt in her hand. she told us to get out and she left the door open. She told jenny to turn over on her bed and drop her pants. I felt sick inside because i thought 16 was too close to being an adult. Jenny took the first part of the beating in silence but pain took over and she cried and screamed. I had received the same type of punishment at home so I don't know why I was shocked, but the sound of the belt striking her bare butt was sickening to me.
