I was only 13 when he was hurting me….

                                             “Rape is not your fault”

My brother had a friend who was 26 years old, he knew him for many years from his school days, he use to come over to our house all the time so my family knew him very well

blurOne day he came over to meet my older brother, who wasn’t home at the time, I was home alone, everyone else was out, my mum and dad were still at work. So I let him in the house and told him he could wait inside as my brother had only gone to the local shops. He agreed and came in the house, I told him he could help himself to some food and drink in the kitchen. I then started to walk upstairs and he asked me where I was going, I told him I had homework to do and went in to my bedroom. Five minutes later he came upstairs in to my bedroom, I was a little surprised to see him in my room because he has never come in to my bedroom before, but I didn’t think much more about it.
