The first time it happened, I was just stunned. I was 17 years old and I was arguing with my girlfriend. We were fighting about something, I don't even remember what it was about anymore. Something stupid. Anyway, we were fighting. It was bad. We were both tired and she just kept going on and on. I asked her to stop, but she was a bit of hot head, so that just made her give it to me twice as bad. As we were yelling back and forth I suddenly felt this heat come over me. It was like my body temperature went up, like, ten degrees in 10 seconds. I felt numb, but excited, you know. Then it happened. It was like I was watching it from the outside. Like it happened lightening quick and in slow motion at the same time. I watched as my hand went across her face. Then everything stopped. The look she gave me. It killed me. She pulled back a little bit and started to cry. The regret. The shame. The anger. It flowed through me. All of it. I felt terrible. I apologized. Consoled. Promised her that it would never happen again. (BEAT) This stays inside me. My family doesn't know. Dr. Fitch doesn't know. Nobody. The man who did those things is dead. I'm ready. To start a new life. To be a new man. It's all in front of me.
