So the title is pretty straight forward.
So in the last week I’ve been revisiting a dark period in my life.
When I was “just friends” with my now girlfriend we were drinking with another one of our other friends and we were playing drink games it was one of those “tell each other your darkest secret” nights.
Anyway so Gemma went first and told us she had an abortion years earlier, Karen told us that she had Herpes (which apparently I got black out drunk and didn’t remember. Which made for a very awkward car ride when we were bringing Karen’s sister back from getting her wisdom teeth out Months after this night so we had been having sex for about 4 months and Karen’s sister lets the Herpes bomb drop. My reaction was not great but we’ve moved on from that) then I told them I was raped when I was younger and no one had mentioned it since.
This week I was going to tell her what happened but last night I decided I didn’t want to. It’s too much. So I’ll tell you guys instead.
I was 17 and living with my aunt and uncle. They were having a party one night where some of their friends and family had come over.
I wasn’t interested because my friend already had planned a party that night at her house.
I was having a great night at my friends party. Getting plastered as per the usual it was 2:15am and the party was winding down. After a night filled with drinks, karaoke and BBQ I hopped in an Uber and went home. I got home at about 2:40am. My aunt and uncle and all their friends were still up drinking and having a good time. Music was blasting. I said my hellos and went to bed.
Very quickly I had fallen asleep in my bed. No dramas.
At 3:25am I was awoken by my uncles brother laying on top of me. The music from their party was still blaring so LOUD!! I tried to move, push him off, scream 😱 I was still. Nothing was coming out. I was frozen in fear it was the most traumatising 9 minutes of my life. He got up and returned to the party.
The next morning he was asleep on the lounge. My Uncle and I were cleaning up the aftermath from the party when I had told him what had happened. He was enraged – he went into the lounge room and dragged his brother out the back where he then beat him senseless. To the point where he had to be taken to the hospital 🏥
No charges were pressed on my behalf because that was the arrangement we made I wouldn’t say anything and my uncles brother wouldn’t say who beat him up.
