I was sexually assaulted when I was 9; I'm 15 now. It still haunts me to this day.

My mom, stepdad, sister, and I were finally moving out of our family friend's house and my mom asked me to go vacuum. There was a nice old man, a friend of my stepdad's, who was helping us move. he was around a lot and he seemed to be the sweetest man. So, as I got done vacuuming, he offered to roll up the wire, but suddenly pushed me into a corner. He told me to be quiet and finished rolling the wire up. He started feeling between my thighs and in my crotch area. I was terrified and I knew my mom was right around the corner. I jumped over the vacuum and ran to my mom crying. She yelled, "What's wrong? What's wrong?" I was trying to gasp for air, because I was panicking. I was nine. I didn't know what to do. I told her what had happened and she kicked him out. I cried to her and when my stepdad found out, he went to find him. he ended up choking him and told him to never come by the house again. My mom didn't want to file any police reports, because she didn't want me to go through court and she knew it would just bring back the memory and I didn't want that. I didn't want to live with that forever. I WAS only nine.

I was sexually assaulted when I was 10; I'm 15 now. it was my 10th birthday and I was so excited. I asked for was $100, because I had never owned so much money. my birthday was combined with my sister's baptism party and my cousin's graduation party. all of the family was gathered together at a ranch house with a bounce house. My older cousin had gone in the bounce house with me and taught me how to do a front flip. while doing this, He pretended to hurt himself and threw himself into one corner of the house. of course, I went to see what had happened, but he pulled me down and immediately put his hand in my pants. I tried getting away, but he took a hold of my underwear. I finally got away, but i never told anyone, because I didn't want him to get in trouble. I know, I hate myself for that. I finally told my mom last year, after I'd gotten arrested for egging his house and car. I had a reason to be mad. I was 10. no little girl should go through that. I WAS only ten.
