Why didn't you say anything?!
I don't know.

Why are you so stupid?
Because I just am. What do you expect me to do? You know what happened. You were there.

Duh. I'm you, idiot.
Right. I'm just kind of out of it okay?

Obviously...Oh no.
What?

He's coming. Don't say anything. Don't look at him. Don't even breathe.

...

You idiot! Why'd you have to breathe?! Get the smell out! Get it out!
I'm sorry! I can't!

Oh God no. He's talking to you. What a-..Ugh!
What do I say?

Something. Just SPEAK!
Uhhh.

"Hey there."
Don't look at him.
"Hi."
Don't breathe.
"Last night was fun."
Fun? More like torture.
"Yup."
Why are you saying these things?! You're so STUPID! Scream at him! Claw his eyes out! Do SOMETHING!
I can't move.

Don't let him touch your hair! Don't-...(sigh)Great, just great.

"We should do it again."
Don't lick your lips like that.

Pig.

"Yeah."
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! YEAH?! WHAT THE HELL?!
I-I don't know...I'm sorry.

Thank Jesus, he's gone. You're so dead.
I'm already dead. I'm sorry.

Don't apologize to me. Don't apologize to anyone. You should've done something. You're stupid...You're stupid...You're stupid.
I know...Iknow.

I got the idea to write this from the novel SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson. If anything like this happens to you, please don't be afraid to speak up. And do not dare belitle yourslef because of it, it was never your fault. Never.
