i was 10. it was the fourth of july and i was getting ready for hotdogs and pool day. my moms sister and their family were coming over as well. the day went on and they came, we ate, and we headed to the pool. i was really exited to go. it was fun for the first half, until my uncle who had joined us, grabbed my foot and proceeded to pleasure himself. i just stared at him. i couldn’t move, he gave me a smirk and i managed to get away. but then he went underwater and he grabbed my foot while i was standing and did it again. i didn’t say anything all day. then weeks went by. months. i still couldn’t get it out of my head and it kept me up at night. until one day i decided to tell my mom what had happened. she asked my why i didn’t tell her sooner. i didn’t really know. she didn’t do anything about it and we still went over to their house occasionally. then when i was 11, i went to my aunts house. they had a two story, and upstairs was my cousins room, so me and my two year old sister went up there. my uncle was taking a shower. me and my sister wanted to get down, but in the middle of the path we say my uncle, naked, facing me and my sister. i turned around to get my sister to get done the stairs. i didn’t tell my mom until a few weeks after. this time she was mad at me for not doing anything to protect my sister, but there was nothing i could do. then when i was 12, i had gone over to my aunts again. i went to my cousins room to hangout. we were kind of bored so we went under her bed and watched youtube videos. i was laying on my stomach at the far edge of the bed. then my uncle came in the room and latex on top of the bed. after a while he poked his head under (i was wearing shorts that day) and he started stroking my leg, then to my thigh and then he got under my underwear and grabbed my private part. i didnt move, i couldn’t move. i looked back at him and he was just smiling. then after a while he left. i then told my cousin if i could go over to her side, the side by the wall. she said okay and my uncle came back in. he then touched her leg and she looked back and started laughing. i didn’t want to look. i got out from under the bed and u went downstairs where my my mom, my grandma, and my aunt were. i then told my grandma if i could talk with her. she took me outside and i started bawling. i told her what he had done to me, and what he did to my cousin and she just hugged me, but then she asked me if i was lying. i said no obviously, why would i lie about that? then she told me that she would get it fixed. it’s been two years, nothing has happened. he still stares at me during family gatherings and parties, and i just act bitchy so he will leave me alone. i’m debating on telling the family that u don’t want him around anymore, because i am scared for my five year old sisters safety. i’m afraid that he will do the same or worse to her. but i planned that whenever we talk about my fifteenth birthday party, i will bring up that i don’t want him there at all. they will ask why and i will bring it up. but that’s in a year, and i will have to look after my sister until then.
