I was thinking this morning of and i thought i'd share and hope others share as well I used to date a chick (who in some ways was worse than my soon-to-be-ex wife, she made her look like a saint at times, the reason i left her; i sure know how to pick them!) who had a six-year-old daughter i believed was so starved for attention (i suspected neglect) she would latch on whoever showed her attention, and that someone was me. Out of six adults in teh house, i was the only one who made an effort to give her attention, listen, and give her positive feedback to help her self-esteem. Not bragging i just thought it was pathetic i was the only one making an effort. But anyways we were in the living room with the TV on and she told me she wanted to show me something in another room. Didn't think anything of it as she liked showing me things of hers, like coloring books pens, stuff like that. But this was different. She turned out the light and closed the door. That freaked me the hell out. I don't know what the hell this little girl wanted to show me wit the lights off in a closed room, should have asked her, but i turned on the light and opened the door back up. She repeated her action and i repeated turning it back on. It's awkward but how the fuck do you explain to a six year old how dangerous that is to do with an adult male. Do it with the wrong guy and he'll use the opportunity to molest her. She was in no danger from me of course, I just figured no one would believe me if they caught me in the dark room with the door closed that it was her idea so she can show me something that has to be seen in the dark. I refused to allow myself in that position. I had to do something, so i told her mom and she did the best she could with greater authority than i had. Although at times i keep reminding a friend of mine who sees her around on occasion to punch her for me (just kidding, she volunteers lol), i still worry about that little girl and hope she turns out okay in this world.
