Hollywood Has a Lot to Answer For

Post by babydyke » Fri Sep 24, 2010 7:55 pm

“Hi! I’m here to see Cassie Killroy.” The young man smiled at George.

“Son, I can’t let you into the dorm without a resident’s permission,” George said slowly.

“Look, I’m Dave--Cassie’s boyfriend. It’s her birthday. I drove all night to surprise her. Could you just…?”

The boy was handsome, dark-haired, charming. He held an enormous bouquet of roses. “Sure,” George said, “special occasion.” George smiled as Dave got in the elevator; he felt like he was in a romantic movie.

Actually, it was more like a thriller. Actually, it wasn’t like a movie at all. It was Cassie’s life.

Thanks.

It's based on a true story. The young man who talked his way past the security guard had been stalking the young woman for two years, ever since they broke up because he raped her. He managed to track her down at her college, convinced the security guard to let him into her dorm without making him sign in. When she came back from class, he rushed her, forced her into her room and raped her again. The guard wasn't fired.

I know this forum is mostly for fiction and weird, but I thought I'd share it anyway. This drabble was very difficult to write in a lot of ways. I hope it works.

Sadly, Cassie had not heard of the Rape-Axe (http://www.antirape.co.za/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;)
