Today on BN Prose, we featured a story “Broken” by Elohor Omonemu with a domestic violence plot line.
As we often find in life, fiction mirrors fact as this story is currently trending on social media site – Instagram.
An aspiring model/actress @bambiiiii_ has shared her horrific domestic violence experience at the hands of her boyfriend of 8 months.
“This night be a little graphic but I just want to let everyone know that I am okay. I am a survivor of domestic violence with a boy I dated for 8 months. I really thought everything was fine but he constantly questioned me about cheating and flirting. Non sense. I never looked at someone the way he looked at me. Thought I loved this boy. How can someone that ‘loves’ me do this to me? The scars on my chest are way worse and extend down to my right nipple, completely scarred. The skin on my shoulder has been completely skinned. And i have bruising on my rib cage, neck, and my muscles. I was kicked out of a moving vechile, then beaten and dragged, as I blacked out and was left lying there in my own puddle of blood. Doctors said I could have died if not made it when I did. I am so blessed and beyond lucky to be alive and have so much support from friends, family, and strangers. As I try to recover I ask to please keep me in your prayers. I have to wear a neck brace for 3-4 weeks, an arm cast and I can barely walk for now. Thank you for all the love. I hope to be an inspiration to women and anyone involved in domestic violence.”
This is so sad!
Ladies and Gentlemen please step away from these type of relationships. There is always a way out.
