I got it!

Finally I got this done! I’m sending this fire out today! Wish me luck!

Is it possible to delve into the mind of a rapist?
Ever since he was younger, sex has always been a part of him, consensually or not. Little girls in the Catholic school twirling around on the playground with their pigtails flapping in the muggy air enticed him until he pulled them into the darkest part of the gym, empty classroom or where ever he could be alone with them. He re-creates what a family member has done to him millions of times in his own bedroom. Now as a successful and attractive family man the past has come back to take residence again.
I did not consent to this…
Her mother warned her that this would happen. Her words echoes through her mind as she is taken from the running trail and raped. Her eyes, slowly becoming dull like death, stared into his crystal blue eyes where they permanently tattooed themselves in her memory bank. They hold a passion that even her long time boyfriend has never shown to her. Those same blue eyes become her eyes the nights that follows. She stands witness to his sick addiction through her dreams only to have those same nameless faces appear on the front pages of the newspaper under the words ‘Another Murder’. Nia’s mind, by force, becomes dark as ruined film. Those five minutes silences her soul; no one is to know even though a thick film of dirt has molded into an unbreakable armor around her. An unplanned sickness sends her to a twenty-four hour convenience store to buy of all things, a pregnancy test. Nia has never run so fast in her life as the day she runs to the abortion clinic. A Higher Power has other plans. Her baby sister, Crystal, intervenes.
Three years later a familiar stranger heads over the department Nia wants to manage. Uneasiness settles in her every time he is around but she can’t put her finger on as to why. The faces of women start to appear on the front pages and her nightmares returns but fuzzy. When her son stands next to his youngest son it looked like a mirror is placed in front of him and those five minutes once again comes flooding back full force. Nia has craved for this opportunity to come face to face with her rapist. Now that he is actually touchable she feels powerless. Sensing this he decides to play on her emotions. A game of cat and mouse ensues. One by one he takes a liking to torturing anyone close to her until the last eightball stands alone cornered. Bonnie and Clyde is shown in its truest form.
Without Consent is the psychological thriller that keeps you guessing and turning the pages to contagious characters, suspense, and a chilling plot that will have you asking, what would you do.
