A Victim of a Drug Addict
Once I first got a chance to visit Dhaka (The capital city of Bangladesh), I know a friend’s friend. She’s Bangladeshi. She can speak English three times better than me. The reason why I talk about her is that she used to do and shoot drugs because she got a really dreadful experience when she was just a teenager.
Her story spitted out the night her parents were not at home. We were talking about a lot of things. We were having fun together. Then I tickled her but she remained the same.
“Don’t you feel anything?” I asked.
“Really? It still looks fresh to me though.” I was joking.
“Seriously, I’m telling you the truth.” She sighed and then said, “My body’s dead because I got a really bad experience.” She looked away and said, “I was raped by my boy friend. He was shooting drug and I was there. I didn’t blame him because I knew it’s not possible to control yourself while you’re doing it.”
She took a deep breath then said, “There was no big deal. I still love him even though he doesn’t love me. ”
“He doesn’t? But, you said he is your boyfriend.” I asked.
“Yes, but it’s just because I’m with him all the time. In fact, he loves one of my friends from high school, but then she got married. It was then drugs became his best friend. Afterward, he ignored his engineer study and being sick because of a girl who broke his heart.”
“Does he love you then?” I asked.
“No, in his thought, I was always be his best friend and his sister. He called me whenever he thought of her.” She said.
“And so, are you still in love with him even though you know he loves someone else?”
“That’s what I like about him. You know, the way he never changes his mind over someone.”
“What if he starts thinking about loving you instead since you’ve always been everywhere for him, what will you do then?”
“Then I won’t love him anymore because he’s not who he is. I love the way he loves my friend and never stop loving her.”
I didn’t know what to say to continue our conversation. I really felt sorry for her even now that I shared it.
No More DRUG, No More Violence!
