Relationship Violence Story From Name Undisclosed

by Name Withheld
(Location Undisclosed)

Hopeless but strong: 
I am 14 and just ended 8th grade. I have been freinds with this guy since the end of 6th grade. we became best friends. i trusted him and we were so close. he started acting weird and sexually towards me. if i went to a football game he would show up with some of his friends and follow me around and sexually harass me. it got worse at school. they would push me against the wall and start touching me and making me do things i didnt want to do. i know its hard to believe this happened at school, it did. he then started texting me threatening me that if i didnt do this one thing that he would rape me. he started getting really profane and rude. he would be really mean. he told me that i better meet him at some mall. so i went but i bought my other guy friend just in case he would try to do anything. but he left me, alone with him. it as awful, i dont realy want to share what happened there but it wasnt good at all. ive told some of my friends but i dont know if they understand. i feel awful but i dont want to sound so weak and hopeless.
