teen relationship rape

15 Years Old in Norfolk, VA | #WeShatterSilence | Let This Story Be Heard By Clicking Share

It all started last August. I had been talking to this guy online, and I hadn’t really wanted to meet him- and I didn’t plan on it either. But some how we ended up hanging out, and I didn’t have a problem being friends with him. I was fourteen and he was seventeen, so it was kind of awkward when he said he wanted to be more than friends. Well, we hung out at his house and he took me the garage to listen to music. And he raped me, I screamed, scratched and bit. But nothing happened,- no one came. He told me that if I told he’d kill me, so I was scared. I kept it to myself, and he would call me and say “come hang out with me, or else I will come to your house when your alone and beat you.” I was scared.. so I went. For two and a half months he raped me. At my house, his house, his garage- Finally I told, but no one believed me… I’m no longer a victim, I’m survivor.

I was nine, and living with my grandparents. My grandfather would rape me everyday before my grandmom got home, and when I said no, he would beat me. Sometimes he would come into my room at night while I was sleeping and pin me to my bed while he raped me. This went on for 4 years, and no one ever noticed. I honestly believed that I was unloveable, because someone who loved me would stop the pain. Then someone reported it to CPS, and he left my life. I’m still having some problems related to it, like I still don’t trust people very much, and I’m afraid to be touched by anyone at times. But its better than it ever was, and I’m grateful.

I was attending an all expenses paid camp for civics literacy, my dream is to study political science in college, and this was my chance to get prepared. It was an honor. That is until I met “Daniel.” He sexually assaulted me on the last night of the camp, when we had a graduation ceremony and discussed our futures… I got home. I felt numb. He never spoke to me that morning when we left. He knew what he did. he got away with it. The DA’s office didn’t believe me. The DA told my mom that she thought I made it up because I didn’t want to tell my boyfriend I cheated on him. If she only knew…
