When I was 8, my mother and father got a
divorce because my mother was abusing my father. They would always fight and my
mother would throw plates and knifes and chairs and cups with hot coffee at

father and mother were bikeys, so she grew up in a bad situation....
So then I went to live with my father. When
he moved out, he always told me that I was his only lover in his life since my

At my dad's house, there was a spare bedroom.
One day, my friend and I were sleeping in the spare room. My dad came into it
and told me to be quiet so I wouldn't wake my friend. But she woke, so we were
sitting there, waiting to see what he was hushing us about....
He had rope in his hand. He told me to tie my friend's hands to the bed, so I did. Then my dad took his clothes off and hers as well. He started touching her and then he raped her and told me to kiss her privates, so I did and he forced my head onto her privates, so I did. Then he swapped it around. This happened many times. He is now in jail.
