Where do I go from here?

Stacy needs help, she is so desperate, and she doesn't know which way to turn.

Where do I go from here?

Stacy had asked herself this question so many times, and she still didn’t know the answer. At fourteen years old, life seemed fun and challenging, boys were great to hang out with, and doing stuff you shouldn’t, seemed to be so much fun.

It wasn’t as if anyone cared about her. Her dad had gone years ago, she couldn’t even remember him, her mum was never around, and when she was, all she cared about was her latest bloke. For the life of her, Stacy couldn’t understand what her mum saw in some of them. They shouted and pushed her around.



Meeting Mark changed her life

Stacy had felt she already had more sense than her mother. She vowed that no man would treat her like that, more fool her mother. Her mother was always saying that boys were only after one thing, and God help her if she ever let one get her up the duff!

She had treated her mother’s remark with contempt. She was going to make her own decisions in life, no man was going to spoil her future. That was until Mark came along. Mark with the jet back hair, brown limpid eyes, and the whitest teeth she had ever seen. Every time he smiled she was fascinated by him , at 16 he seemed so mature, and a warmth flowed out of him that she had never before known in her life, but now craved.

But now he was gone

He had hugged her, and loved her, introduced her to sex, and those eyes, so seeming sincere, had promised her the world. But it was all make believe, he had now moved on, and she was pregnant. She couldn’t tell her mother, and her feelings were all mixed up.

One minute she felt as if having an abortion would be the answer, and her life could go back to normal. But then the next, she felt the stirring of love towards the new life growing inside her. Maybe it would make her life harder, but she would have someone to love and maybe be loved back, her own baby. She put her head in her hands, and wished there was someone to turn to for help, because right now she desperately needed it.

Unfortunately there are many men who are like this who use young nubile girls as objects of pleasure and get away with it leaving the girl with a child in hand.
Parents of daughters should educate their young ones about their bodies at a very young age and tell them that their body is a temple of god and no one should enter it unless they have the permission to do so. That was how I was brought up. Where there are flowers, there is honey so there will always bees hovering around for a taste. You either let them in, or brush them off. The child lacked proper guidance from the parents. In other words the mother is unfit to get called a mother.
