Hey girls and guys,

Sorry I have been away so long, soulsister and randomwomen sorry I havent been here to support you!!! I feel so bad for deserting you both :(.

But, I thought id give you all an update. The court case started wednesday, in which the jurors were sworn in and the case was accepted into Crown court. Well I was'nt needed for that day just my cousin gave evidence.

On Thursday however, my sister and I were called in as witnesses. I stood with my head held high, though i was petrified. I knew it was going to be the hardest day of my life, and by god it was!!!

A witness before me was called in and lasted in the court for about 30 minutes. Then I was called in and at first they read my statement, which took about an hour and a half, I cried through it. The whole thing replayed in my head as they read my statement out. By the time my statement had been fully read out, it was 1pm and i was 'part-heard' as we departed for lunch.

I could'nt be with my family for lunch as some of my family were going to be witnesses later and they could'nt risk contamination of evidence. So i had to eat alone.

However we reconvined at 2pm whereby the hardest part of the whole thing happened. They began to question me. The defence started to say that it never happened, that it was a dream and that it was my mind playing tricks on me. At one point the defence said ' i put it to you that it did'nt happen and that your mind it playing tricks on you'. I promptly replied with 'No it did happen. Since when does an 8 year old know about rape, I put it to you that an 8 year old does'nt make up stories like that. I know lies hurt, and this is deadly important,why should I lie? I have a clear cut memory of it, my brain is'nt such that it makes it up, I don't have an imagination!'

The defence shut up after that! I stood up for myself. He made me cry though. He told me he had no further questions. I was in the witness box for a total of four hours!!!

After that my sister was called and then my friend. I got home about 7pm and the hardest day of my life was over.

Today mam and my brother gave evidence, but for me its closure now, whether he gets away with it or not. I saw my rapist and abuser 4 times yesterday adn I never backed down once. I am strong, i did do it and I shoved it all back in his face.

The verdict wont be told untill monday now though. However, closure was speaking up and getting a whole load of shit off of my chest. Seeing him, not backing down and cowering in fear. Thats my closure!

I have to go now, but I will be back.
It is now 1:27am and my bones ache. I will let you all know the verdict.

All my love,
kee

Gee, what an ordeal (((MBM))).

I just read this and feel for you. What about the "he" "8-year-old thing?" Sorry I didnt follow... Did it happened to you at that age? I have an 8-yr-=old nephew who´s been teaching wonderful things just by being him but also by the truths he speaks of whithout even realizing it. Eight-yr-olds know things!!!

Congrats so far and all the best for closure.

Sin , hello honey.
I was raped and abused from the age of eight to 12 by my grandad. That was why I went to court. I faced my fears and I am proud of myself. Thankyou so much, your right they know things, but what children know now at the same age i was is drastically different to what I knew.

Kids programmes have inuendos in now, they did'nt when i was a kid. I barely watched TV! I only learnt about sex when i was 15!!! but they are bright enough to know it was wrong! Amazing how life changes eh ?

all my love honey,
kee
