“I took my daily pill just as the man wanted. I woke in the morning, shook a pill onto my tongue, and swallowed. The pill settled in my stomach uncomfortably. There was a constant presence of acid in my chest. I could not breathe normally. The acid rush was too much. It was difficult to swallow. I chased the pill with several glasses of water. The end result was that my stomach felt swollen. I had to use the bathroom constantly. The man reminded me. He asked if I took my pill like a good girl. He always said girl when speaking about me. I was a good girl or a bad girl or a naughty girl. I was his girl.”
