Teen Central has withheld the story of sexual assault due to the explicit and graphic details that may be disturbing to some readers.
It was so stupid to let myself be fooled like this!
That Friday night…several of us…decided to go have some drinks at a local pub. I had a vision of some beer, shoot some pool, throw some darts and have some fish & chips and go home. There were five of us and we were laughing, telling dirty jokes, flirting with women at the bar and in general having a great time.
I don’t know, maybe it was around 10:30 and I was feeling pretty high, I really don’t drink that often and six or seven beers and a couple shots of Taquila and I was in no condition to drive. A man I had never seen before was very nice and said, look let me take you home and you can get your car tomorrow! I did not argue!
We went to my home and he came in with me and helped me get undressed. (Description of sexual assault).
