I SEE ME IN YOU

This little girl can lie! What he said, What am I doing with you. he said. This little girl intends to spoil my reputation. I looked at his face. They looked innocent. But I knew better. Yes! I knew so much how I wanted them to trust me at that time. The little girl claimed he squeezed her breast. He told her, ' She would not be believed'.She looked doubtful now whether I would take action. He was threatening ... and protesting innocence.. but I had seen it all before. She had no reason to lie. If I let him go he do it again and this time the victim wouldn't come because she would remember this story. I understand. I said calmly. You may go now. I counseled the young woman and quietly wrote his letter of dismissal.

Thank you for sharing this

I'm glad you sent the message to this little girl and to others that as an authority figure you could be trusted to listen to them and help protect them. What a tough, sad situation.
