Adeline’s Story

I was 15 years old when I was walking home from a party and two men picked me up and forced me into their van. It was a white van; it was a summer evening.

The two men were Caucasian and in their 30s. They raped me consecutively.

They took me to their house and forced me in/ I got scared and tried to get out through the bathroom window, but they caught me. Then my head began to race because I was very scared that I would never be able to leave.

So I made up a story that I had a heart condition.

I have lived with the fear and the disgust for all these years. I was 15 then. And now I am 55 years old.
