Unhappy Sexual assault again and again - June 28th 2016, 03:01 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

When I was in the last few years of high school, 11th and 12th grade, there was a boy who I will call J who I was forced to sit next to in most of my classes. I was in an extension class and it was male dominated. If we ever moved around I would be very likely to sit next to a boy rather then one of the four girls. But I was always left sitting next to J. He used to drop things on the ground and make me bend over to pick them up. Once I decided not to pick it up and instead he went down and put his hand up my skirt as he sat back up. A few weeks passed of him doing this. He never stopped even though I asked him on multiple occasions and I am clearly uncomfortable with it. I have threatened to tell teachers or the principle but he said if he finds out that I tell anyone he will rape me. I tried to stay away from him but it was hard because we were forced in the same class. One day the teacher let us have our phones out and let us do what we wanted as a reward for not talking or chewing gum (which is a surprisingly common procedure in our highschool). He slid his hand down my skirt and started to touch me in places I'm not comfortable with. I tried to force his hand off me but he told me he would hurt me and rape me like he said he would before. He got his phone and put it on vibrating mode and slid it down into my panties. I begged him to stop and he didn't until the bell rang. I searched for my boyfriend who was in a different class. I hadn't told him anything before about it but I was so scared of J that I had to tell someone. My boyfriend-Noah- was so angry but he helped me. My parents left me to stay at Noah's house for a few weeks too because they had to visit some relatives. Noah calmed me and helped me to talk through it. We cuddled on his couch in front of the TV until I fell asleep. The next day at school was unusually quiet. J didn't do anything which was strange. I thought he had finally stopped. After school I was going to walk to Noah's house with some friends. But J and his friends got me and covered my mouth. They held me in the men's toilets forcefully until everyone had left school and it went quiet. My friends must have left thinking I'd gone with Noah. J and his friends did the unthinkable and then left me. I didn't know what to do so I just called Noah and got cleaned up while waiting for him to arrive in his car. When we got to his house I went straight to the shower. I cried and cried, must've been in there for hours. Noah finally knocked on the door. He heard me crying. I didn't want to unlock it so he came with the key and unlocked it. He found me crying on the floor of the shower. He turned off the water and helped me dress into some comfortable clothes. Then he put me in his bed, came in next to me and asked me to tell him what happened. I was so scared, but I told Noah because I knew I could trust him. I spilled out everything. He told me that everything would be OK. He stayed home with me for the rest of the week. He helped me through everything and I don't know where J is now. I decided to share this today because I wanted everyone to know that whatever you were or are going through, never give up. Someone will always be there to help you. Noah and I are now happily married as of late last year. He is the most amazing person I've ever met and I want to thank him for helping me through everything

I'm so sorry to hear what you went through. That must have been traumatic, to say the least. I'm glad that you have someone like Noah, who was with you when you needed him.

I would also like to ask if you ever ended up reporting it, or talking to a therapist about it? As hard as something like this is, it's even worse staying silent about it. So I'm glad you were able to talk to Noah about it and he did everything he could to help you get through it.

Take care,
Kaveri

As wild and as reckless as thunder over the land.
Racing with the eagle, soaring with the wind.
Flying? There were times I believed I could."

I'm really sorry to hear what happened to you. It's up to you whether you report it or not, but it may help to consider talking to a counsellor or therapist. I also want to thank you for sharing your story with us- it must've taken a lot of courage to do that. And it's brilliant that you and Noah are happily married, and as you say, it's comforting to know that hard times can be overcome. Take care
