He Was 10 - I Was 9
He & his friends took me behind our elementary school. They knew exactly where the teachers patrolled. I was pushed down onto my hands & knees, & with his friends watching he raped me.
To him it was just another way to humiliate & bully me. Every time he could get me alone on the playground or in the hallway, he'd do it again. I was so terrified of my own shadow from the years of bullying & abuse I had already taken, that I never told.
To this day, that year haunts me & I will never "get over it" or "move on" from it. The scars are there, deep inside & they rip open to bleed from time to time.
It doesn't matter how old you are... the damage is irreversible & life altering. I know what happened. I was there, I felt it, & believe me when I say it wasn't "a game of doctor that got OUT OF HAND", nor was it "Just boys being boys". It was RAPE & it is a life sentence that I will never be paroled from. He got off scotfree..
