A story of Escape, Rescue and Subjection

(Subject unknown)

This story is one that I have not been able to get off my mind, because it is mine and it has caused me to willingly stay away from men for the past 10 to 15 years.

I tell this story with no passion because I don't get excited thinking about it, or overwhelmed that it happened to me. I just want to tell this story without emotions and any attachment whatsoever so I won't have to remember what it felt like to be rescued only to be enslaved, beaten and abused by so many men.
