When I was 13, you raped me. I was too young to know what was happening. You tore my entire life apart… And I have yet to pick up the pieces. I never told anyone what happened, because you were a volunteer firefighter and had a bright future ahead of you. I couldn’t ruin someone’s life. I searched your name today, because what happened has really been bothering me. 2 years ago, you were arrested for rape, sodomy, and second degree sexual abuse. You ruined your own life- which if I had told, would have simply come sooner. I can only hope the poor girl you hurt is okay.. Because I will forever blame myself for what happened to you. If I had ruined his life, maybe you wouldn’t have had your innocence taken away like I did. And for that, I am so, so sorry. Please forgive me; I would have told if I knew he would hurt someone else. I wish I could have protected you- and I could have, but I decided to protect the one who hurt you… And now all three of our lives are ruined, or at the least forever changed.
