“Rina, where are you going?” Tom calls out from behind me.
I turn around, “I need to go somewhere. I’ll meet you guys back home!”
And with that, I turn and run to a cab. I quickly tell him Xavier’s address and we go. Everything hits me like a bus.
He raped me. That pig raped me. My vision blurs up and I start to shake. I feel so dirty and that no amount of washing will cleanse it. What on earth am I going to say to him?
I stare out of the window and can’t help but regret not telling Tom. Right now, all I want is him. I want him to hug me and tell me everything is okay. But I didn’t. I didn’t tell him. And now nothing is okay. I have to do this on my own.
I gulp and tremble. The cab driver stares at me from the rear view mirror but doesn’t question it.
We arrive and I hand him some cash, “thank you and keep the change.”
I’m ready to jump out of the car and do everything drastic but in that instant, the driver says, “wait.”
I look towards him, “did I give the wrong amount? Here let me get more.”
“No, you gave me enough,” he smiles and it stops me from pulling out my wallet, “I’ve had my share of traumatic experiences, so I just wanted to say that everything will be okay.”
I wasn’t expecting this. I genuinely smile at him and hop out of the car without saying a word.
How pathetic am I? A stranger had to comfort me, I’m that much of a mess. I stop outside the door of the apartment complex and hesitate before taking the handle and bursting in. I take the stairs to his room, the rage inside of me giving me an adrenaline rush. I don’t even knock. I slam open the door and there he is. Watching TV as if he did nothing wrong.
“What are you doing here?!” he scowls.
I stand at the doorway, gaping, “you’re a monster...”
“I’ve been told,” he says smugly, “what did I do?”
“What did you do?!” I scoff, “you... you...”
Tears slide down my cheeks and I look away from him. My trembling is uncontrollable.
He knows he’s broken me and he grins evilly, “what did I do?”
I gulp and clench my fists.
“What did I do, Corinna?” he’s taunting me now, “what. Did. I. Do!”
“You raped me!” I spit as tears flow down angrily from my cheeks.
With James Gunn gone there is a gap that must be filled. I believe Taika killed it with Thor and he could definitley pull it off, but what do you guys think?
