And the worst thing is that they raped her. After they spiked her drink and after she passed out they stripped her down to nothing and raped her right there on the kitchen floor.
And the worst part about it is they took photos. After they raped her, each of them getting at least one turn, they pulled out a camera and took her photo. The first few were blurry because they were drunk and laughing but eventually they got it. A nice crisp photo of a young girl on the kitchen floor, bleeding, and sleeping, and dreaming of something evil that she couldn’t escape.
And the worst part about it is they shared those photos online. They bragged about it. They used hashtags and encouraged their friends to like and favorite and retweet so that everyone would know what they did.
They were proud and the worst part about it is that so were other people. “LOL,” someone wrote. “What a slut.” “What a bitch.” “What a whore.” And they shared the photos over and over and over again until everyone knew about what had happened.
Except for her. And that’s worst part about it. She woke up groggy, naked, hurt and confused but she didn’t know exactly what had happened to her. She had ideas, of course, but it wasn’t until she saw the photos… until she saw everyone laughing at her that she realized what had happened.
They stripped her down to nothing and then laughed at her. And the worst part about it is that they weren’t really laughing at her in particular. They were laughing at a victim. It could have been anyone and it will be someone else tomorrow and they will point and they will laugh again.
And that’s the worst part about it.
