Follow your gut. Don't just "distance" your Self from this guy. What you've seen is clearly signs of at the very least wholly inappropriate behaviour from this guy. My red flags of concern are waving at full mast! Report your suspicions to the authorities. Do it now! Even if there is no sexual abuse going on, this young teenage girl needs the help of a clear-thinking adult. It's best to err on the side of caution than to let this girl possibly go one more day in an abusive situation. Contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about what you witnessed. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting.

Do the right thing, Zoe. Report him, and don't deny what you believe him to be. Your internal voice is trying to tell you something. Thank you for sharing this with my visitors and me. I send you and this 14-year-old girl love, light and healing energy.
