Growing up, I was taught to trust my family always. Two summers ago my cousin asked if I would "take it off" for him. I laughed. I blamed myself. I wondered what I did. Now I don't go to many family events. 

It was winter and we went sledding. I was so tired on the car ride back that I closed my eyes, but I was in no way asleep. When I felt my cousins hand on my chest, I froze. I closed my eyes as tight as possible. I didn't move. And again I blamed myself. I wondered what I did. I keep to myself now and don't do much with "family."
