I dated this guy, everything was okay. I was a virgin that time, so one day he asked me to visit him, and I did, not knowing that he will force himself on me. I was scared and he beat me with a belt. He forced himself on me, and he did what he wanted. I was scared after that and he gave me something to stop the blood in my private parts. I was crying, everything happened so fast. I am writing this with a heavy heart, but I am glad that today I have the courage to talk about it.
