When I was about 9-11 years old, my older brother had our cousin sleeping over, who was the same age as him. Well, I happened to be wearing a nightgown then. Throughout the night, my cousin kept poking my butt and moving away fast and smiling to make it seem like it wasn't him. I didn't say anything. Later in the night, when I was about to fall asleep, I opened my eyes to him in my room lifting up my dress. This is a really hard topic for me. He said sorry (which he definitely didn't mean) and walked out. I eventually built up the courage to speak to my mom and dad, and they let me sleep in their room. They told my brother about what happened and they told my cousin to apologize. He did, saying he'd never do it again. What baffles me is, they still let him stay the night and the night after that one. I don't remember him sleeping over ever since, but even if he's changed and he's older now, I just can't be around him. Nobody in my family talks about what happened and they all seem to love him a lot now. I've never told anyone this.
