okay so i was 13 (incoming freshman) and i had just started smoking weed and drinking, so i made a lot of older friends from it. i became friends with this guy named J. (that’s what i’m gonna call him) so one day i decided to go to his house and hang out with him and some of our other friends. so i get there and i see this really cute guy (i’ll call him P). we didn’t really talk to each other that day. a few days later, i get a text from this guy on snap. (he was 17 at the time) we started talking and actually becoming friends. we were both taking interest in each other and we knew it. after a few days of talking, we decided to start hanging out. we became the bestest of friends. i would tell him everything, he was always there for me. eventually, we became a thing. that’s when everything changed. in the beginning things were great. amazing actually. i was so in love with him. but then come to find out, he was cheating on me. but not just with one girl. multiple. but me being as in love with him as i was, i forgave him and gave him another chance. he manipulated me into giving him another chance. he was already emotionally abusive. after a little while, he started to become physically abusive. besides that tho, things weren’t too bad i guess. around a month or two later (february 2nd 2020), my life changed forever. and not for good. we were hanging out at my childhood best friends house. he raped me. it’s the hardest thing i’ve ever gone through in my entire life. he then went and told everyone at school that he slept with me, and that i begged him to. everyone believed him and thought i was just a whore.
