said throwing her the news paper on the table in front of
don't want to talk about it." I said looking down not wanting to
look at her face.
"Ryan, this was open on the table. It is
threatening your life. We are talking about this." She snapped at
me. I looked down at the article.
Rapist at Camp Lejeune
senior at Lejeune High School was put to 9 years in federal
prison last Tuesday. He was charged with two counts of rape as
well as harassment. The two women, who will be unnamed for the
safely and the privacy, filed for this with hard evidence. One,
only 19 now, brought home the case as she proved that her rape by
her son. Her son only 13 months old had a DNA test proving that
he was Owen's son.
The other girl, a senior also at Lejeune
High, also was raped and testified. She as well will go unnamed
to keep her privacy. We got to talk to Owen before he was
transferred to the state prison. "I did not rape those two girls.
They were my girl friends and I was having sexual relations with
them. You cannot say I 'raped' them because they were asking for
it. I am sorry I loved my girlfriends. But I can tell them one
thing. I will never leave them alone; they will always have to
look over their shoulders. Never going to be alone. I will find
them one day."
Let's hope now the rapes will stop now that
Owen is put away.
Mom looked at me as the tears fell from my
eyes. "Why didn't you tell anyone?"

"Yeah mom?" I asked as Tanner sat down next
came into your room to say good night and you to were seeping to
together. If it was your Dad he would have dragged him out of bed
and beat him till you couldn't see your skin with all the blood."
I blushed looking down."I know what it is like to be in love at
your age. I was younger when I met your Dad. I trust you that you
are being safe and I trust that you won't break my baby's heart,
because I will hurt you if you do." She said pointing to Tanner.
"I will make sure you will never want to have kids or even want
to sleep with anyone. Do I make myself clear?" She said at
"Yes Ma'am. I would never." He said looking
at her before he kissed me.
"And I will talk to your father. Don't
worry about it. I know how to make him happy." She smirked. I
shuddered thinking about my parent's sex life.
"Thanks Mom." I smiled. She
"Also lock your door I don't want Hunter or
TJ wanting in on you because you know them." She said taking the
news paper back.
"Well I think Hunter is okay with it, TJ

seen too much of him. SO when is everyone coming?" I asked
getting a bowl of cereal and pouring milk. I handed it to Tanner

two, Poppy and Grammy should get in later as Nana and Grandpa
should be here with Uncle Charlie about when Your Uncle Connor
gets here." She nodded.
"What about Uncle Spencer?" I asked looking
up taking a bite of my food.
"I'm not sure, I'll call him." She nodded.
