"Uh, here." Garrett was generally the shy type, girls and guys were like a foreign language to him and he failed Spanish twice but with them it was different he didn’t want to spend the rest of his life regretting that he didn’t tell them how he felt. He handed the small, rectangular cassette tape to them. "I know this is extremely cheesy but I didn’t know how to put how I felt for you into words so I decided to make a mix tape."

Melinda stared in disbelief at him. This had to be a joke right? She wasn’t sure if she really believed in love, she was the cynical type. Garrett was cute but she buried her feelings in general because of her past. ”Y-you..you did?”

"Hello! Did you know that rhinos’ skin is super thick, and it can be as thick as 1.5 centimeters?" Gabriel, you can’t just stop people randomly on the street and tell them facts!

”N-no. I didn’t..know that.” Melinda was clearly thrown off by a stranger coming up to her. She bit down on her lip just expecting him to leave her alone.

"All right, let’s take it from the top! Places, everyone!" As the stage manager, Jimmy was allowed to boss everyone around backstage — which was something he wasn’t afforded in normal school activities. But that was all right, since the young man was perfectly happy with managing the three-act play that the school was going to perform in a few days. As Jimmy passed by the actress who was in the lead role, he couldn’t help but stop and smile at her.

"Say, uh, Melinda, good job on that sad scene near the end. You made us all cry backstage." He began with a grin. "You’re such a swell actress — you know, I think you’re gonna go places and make a name for yourself and… well, keep acting." He added. Jimmy’s blue gaze shone with admiration for her — and he usually was pretty awkward with girls, but for some reason, he found himself comfortable when talking to Melinda. She was different.

When Melinda was younger she was good at being quiet and pretending like she was fine so it made sense she wanted to go into acting. She didn’t have to be herself and could hide in a character, even though she got anxiety with crowds. She would smile, act, and shake from fear later on when she was alone.

When she heard Jimmy tell everyone they were taking it from the top, she let out a tired sigh but didn’t let it show. As she walked by him, she was surprised when he spoke to her. ”Oh..thanks. I made you cry huh? I guess I’ll take that as a compliment.” She managed a faint smile. She had good practice with being sad in her past, but no one knew that.

You Are Stronger Than You Think

”No one cared enough to ask how I was before..” She was used to the role of outcast where she was ignored both at school and at home. She began to tremble as the thoughts came back to her mind. She wanted to express them but she wasn’t sure yet if she could trust Jennifer.

She had changed so much and it scared her. She felt like she could never be normal again. Her innocence was robbed from her and then she was tortured when she was kidnapped so her old self might as well be dead.

"Melinda. I care for two reasons. I have been were you are and I want to help you and two because you are a person and you should be treated like one." JJ did not believe in hurting others in anyway unless it was in the field and she had to a job to do.

"You are safe here with me sweetie." She was in mommy mood. The sweet and caring tone was all her tone held. You would be saying these same words to your daughter if something like this happened to her. Just think of her as your child. 

image

Melinda blinked. Jennifer had been in her position? Maybe she did understand and she thought of telling her at least a little bit of what happened. She still had her guard up and she kept her eyes to the ground but she decided to speak a few words.

”I just want to forget all of it but I can’t.” It was barely audible but there it was. She started to bite on one of her fingernails, she did that when she felt nervous like she would bite on her lips. It was also an expression of pain in a way.

Didn’t anyone understand that she didn’t want to speak at the moment and wanted to be left alone? She just wanted to hide in her bed and never come out again, she was afraid of being around people. She heard the woman start to speak so Melinda looked up for barely a moment before back down again. She wrapped her arms around herself protectively.

A little about yourself. She almost wanted to laugh at that. Like she cared about anything about her. She just wanted to get the case over with. That’s what Melinda thought anyway. ”You don’t want to know about me.”

image

"I do want to know more about you." JJ swallows hard. "It can help when it comes to talk about these kinds of things. When you know and trust the person it is easier to talk to them about it. " she knew that it would never be without pain, talking about what happened.

"I know that the thoughts still haunt you…Melinda. I know that you are scared and want to be left alone. You want to not let anyone in about what happened to you and that is not healthy. It eats you up inside."

Melinda sat in a conference room but it was like she wasn’t even there. She looked even thinner than usual and she had slight bruises on her from what Andy did to her when he kidnapped her.He had come out of nowhere when she was walking home and threw her in his truck.  Her eyes were lifeless and wasn’t looking at anything in particular. ”I could have any girl in the school..willingly. Why would I rape you? You’re not even attractive.” His words played over and over again in her head. He would hit her each time she would try to get away from him.

She barely looked up as she heard someone come in but she tensed up on instinct. She bit on her bottom lip, both were chapped and she didn’t respond. She just..sat there motionless.

image

JJ takes a breath as she took notice of the fact that the child tensed up when she came into the room. “I am going to do this slowly by starting out with telling you a little about myself.” she was going off script but she knew that it would do something. She remembered how she felt not knowing the person who was asking her questions.

She slowly walks over to a chair in front of Melinda and sits down gracefully. “My name is Jennifer Jareau and I work with the FBI. I have a daughter and a son. I had some horrible things happen to me when I was young and I understand that the past hurts. I know you want to forget about it but right now we need your help.” You should just tell her. Tell her you understand this whole thing. You understand because you have been sexually abused and still are having it happen only with someone else. Her mind was begging her to tell the child more about herself. Tell her how she understood the pain but she kept her mouth shut. “Can you tell me a little about yourself?”

Jennifer Jareau had been sick to her stomach the whole time she was on Melinda’s case. She had memories of her own to hold back as she walked into the conference room, where the young girl was sitting. She could see the innocents that had been stripped away from her soul. Poor Melinda. She did not need to go through all of this crap right now. She should be home with her family, trying to get back to normal. Normal JJ thought. She will never be normal. Not after what that jack ass did to her. 

"My name is Jennifer Jareau. I’m with the FBI and I am here to talk with you about what happened since the party." she spoke with understanding in her voice. She did understand this whole thing more than some would think.
