Maribel’s Story of Abuse
It all started when he said for me to bring him his phone from the room. He did not say it in a polite fashion, although I dismissed that and the following conversation progressed:
Me: “Wasn’t it just here on the table?”
Him: “Why the hell would I be asking you to bring me the phone if it was on the table?”
I also dismissed this and brought him his phone. I tossed it so it would land right next to him.
Me: “You’re not welcome.”
Him: “I wasn’t going to say thank you.”
Me: “I know you weren’t. That’s why I said you’re not welcome.”
Then I simply touched his face because his head was laying right by where I was sitting. I did touch him out of frustration, but it was a touch that couldn’t hurt him in any way, shape, or form. My intentions were not to hurt him in any way.
Him: “Do that again and see what the fuck happens to you.”
Me: “Well what’s going to happen if I do touch you again?”
Him: “I’m going to slap the shit out of you, you bitch.”
At that point I was so confused on how to respond to the threat and just could not believe that threat came out of his mouth. I left him there and did not speak to him all night.
