Anonymous Story: I knew him and had to see him every day in high school

I was going to class. I was a little late, nobody was in the hallway. A gang member known for being crazy, out of control and violent literally snatched me up y the back of my jacket and said “you’re coming with me”. I was scared and in shock. I could make any sounds never mind screaming help. He then grabbed my arm and dragged out of the side door across the street the gangs drug house in a an apartment building. He pulled me, still by arm, upstairs in that apartment into a bedroom with a mattress and box spring on the floor. He told me to pull down my pants and get on the bed. I did as I was told. I was petrified. He took down his pants and got on top of me and proceeded to rape me. I just laid there till he was done. He got up pulled up his pants. He gave me and icy stare and I got up quickly and pulled up my pants. He opened the apartment door and we both walked out. I ran across the street without looking back at him , I went into school through the same door I came out of. Still no one was in the hallway or saw us. I went to the bathroom to clean myself up. I was bleeding and sore. I went to lunch as scheduled at that time of day. I’ve hid this secret for more than 20 yrs. I didn’t tell anyone because he was from a well known violent gang of which whom I went to school with all the members including him every day. I was afraid he’d kill me and/or terrorize my family. I have not been right with men since that day.
