It is a true account of something that happened many years ago. I have written this story several times and always deleted it as soon as I read it. When I wrote it before it always came out looking just what it was: an older boy (me) taking advantage of a younger girl. I guess that's what happened. Please don't judge me.
Beth was 12 and I was 19. She was the daughter of one of my mother's best friends. I knew her my entire life but never paid any attention to her. She and her mom would visit at least twice a year often at Thanksgiving.
