5. Chapter 4 - It's My Problem

I was tired of fighting. I had given up hope that this would ever end. The few times I had tried running always ended with me getting caught. It would cause Sean to get furious, which would result in him beating me. I didn’t need that on top of what he already did, so I stopped running a while back.

The rest of my family has no idea what’s been happening. I’m not okay with what Sean does at all, but I have a feeling my mom wouldn’t believe me. I mean it’s a little far-fetched, isn’t it? And I don’t want to hurt her. She’s been through so much and she deserves to be happy. I don’t want to wreck it for her. And I’m afraid that if I do tell her, she’ll mention it to Sean to tell him how “crazy” I am for saying that, and he’ll hurt me even more. The only person who knows anything is Brad. And all he knows is that Sean abuses me. He doesn’t know anything about him molesting me. Brad found out about the abuse because he came home early one day and heard a loud slap. He made me explain. I left out as much detail as I could though. For some reason, I’m just not comfortable telling anyone about what’s been happening. I don’t want to put it on anyone else’s shoulders. It’s my problem.

The side by side windows in my room are glued shut. My mom has no clue about this because she’s never in my room. Sean glued them shut one day when he came in to get me and I ran to the window and tried to leave.

A couple times, I had escaped. Not through my window, but other various places. Once, it was the front door after I told him I “needed a drink first”. Another time, it was the back door, because we had been in the living room. And my personal favorite was the bathroom window, after I had used the toilet. I would never get away though. Somehow he would always find me. What goes on between him and me is my deep dark secret. I want the help, I just can’t ask for it.
