Papa forced me to sleep with him every night after mom died!
Sexual Abuse is that sensitive topic about which everybody talks, but, not in public. I have faced that extreme torture and survived those terrible nights.
I was the only boy child of my parents. My mom and dad loved me, I was pampered, my mom always understood me and my dad, he was my idol, my superhero!
Yes, you heard it right. He was my superhero!
I was born to a father who owned a small business and my mom, she was a teacher. But then came the saddest day in my life. I lost her and it was like as if she took my soul with her! I was 13 back then!
I was depressed and forgot my dad was depressed too. He lost himself in this scenario. He started drinking, smoking and then, it was one night when he came and took me to his room. He drank his last peg purely neat and asked me to undress. I was shocked and numb. I couldn’t move. When I did not respond, he forcefully pulled me towards him and undressed me ignoring my tears. And, then he did what he wanted to!
It was that night and after every night, this happened. The night like this continued for another year. I knew it was not right, I knew I should say No to him but I never had that courage nor did I resisted as he was my dad, my superhero!
Then came this other night which was worst than every other night. He came in with 2 of his other friends and I knew what was coming for me! It was that moment when I stood up and as he touched me, I did something which I should have done one year back. I slapped him! Yes, I slapped my father.
All stood numbly! And then, I just ran away to a place where no one could see, hear or touch me!
Next day when I came back home I saw my dad’s body. I saw his hand was full of blood and realized what he did!
Don’t really know it happened for good or bad, but it was hard for me, real hard! I lost my lifelines!
People should take a stand if they are facing any such abuse in their life. Because your life is not worth an abuse!
