Part 3

No one knew what I was going through, but I thought they knew. How could they not have known? They could think, could they not? How could they not have seen? They had eyes, didn’t they? But who would have believed that the son of a bank vice president, whose family were members of the country club, could possibly be abusive? I doubt that very few in our little town would have considered that a remote possibility. Regardless of what the townspeople would or would not have believed, however, I went to school with a black eye and bruises more than once, though perhaps the black wasn’t black enough, as I carefully concealed the dark shadows with makeup, and perhaps the bruises were not prominent enough, as I did my best to keep them well hidden from sight. No teacher questioned me, nor did my friends, other than to say something jokingly like, “What happened, did you run into a door?” But the life I was living was no joke. I was scared and confused, and as time passed, I became paranoid and defensive, like my abuser.
