    Laura's MP3 High Low


    I was thrilled. I had been asked to the prom, the biggest night of the year, by the guy that everyone wanted to date. I was the envy of all of my friends. I couldn’t believe that this was happening to me! I knew that this was going to be the best night of my life.

    We met some friends at the dance and started taking tons of pictures. I was having fun with my friends but my date was bored and impatient. Finally he told me that he wanted to leave so that we could be alone. I wasn’t sure that was such a good idea but I knew I didn't want our date to be over so soon. We got in the car and drove around for awhile. Then he stopped the car and started to force himself on me. I didn’t like it and I told him I wanted him to stop and to take me home immediately. He did take me home even though he seemed pretty mad at me. I talked to my parents and the counselor at school about what happened. I didn’t want anyone to get into trouble but I did think it was important for me to be able to talk to the adults that I trust. A few days after this happened we had an assembly on dating issues. During the assembly the presenter talked about the laws regarding sexual conduct. We all learned that certain types of sexual conduct are felonies. (ARS 13-1401-1406). I think it helped to hear how serious this can be. The guy who had been my prom date even apologized to me later in the day. I’m sure he and I won’t go out again but at least we can be polite to each other. I also know I won’t let myself get into a situation like that again.
