"After it was over, I got up and patted myself down, he started talking to me like what just took place didn’t happen. I was scared and thought if I kept calm and talked back maybe, just maybe I’d get home safe. As we got closer to my front door, he waited as I let myself in before walking away. I never spoke about the rape or reported it, I continued to pretend it didn’t happen.
A few weeks later I began to feel sick, nauseous and was vomiting. I didn’t know what was wrong with me, the sickness wouldn’t go away. I was scared and didn’t know what to do, I begged my mum to take me to the doctors, I’d forgotten about that night and didn’t link how I was feeling to the news I was about to receive. When the doctor examined me and I was told I was six weeks pregnant, I went into shock – I was thirteen years old".
