Their’s was a forbidden love, of course at that time he thought he was in love. Any teenage boy with hormones raging all through him would, she was beautiful very beautiful and the first woman to not treat him like a child. She would talk to him like a man, he liked that; it made him feel grown up and not the way his Mom shouted at him even around other people. She understood him, all his frustrations, all the things he needed, she knew them. In fact she was special to him and it didn’t matter if he was her mother’s friend. He didn’t see her age, so many of his friends would be jealous if they found out that he was dating an older woman. They would even ask him to get them one, an experienced woman that knows what a “man” needs. He felt good like a Don.. Like the guy who nailed Stifler’s Mom, it was going so well for him after all he would be 18 in a few months so he would even be legal.
She took him out to hotels and told Mom she was taking him to hang with her stepsons, Mom trusted her of course; if anything aroused her suspicions about how many times Aunt Helen, she dismissed it. The woman was like a sister to her and she would trust her with her own family. Aunt Helen told him to call her Helen when they are alone, she took him to hotels and touched him in ways that he only saw on porn hub, she kissed him sensually and his whole body would respond like a switch. He loved all that she did to him, she even let him drink whiskey, poured it for him in her undergarments. He didn’t like the taste of it, but he had to be a man so swallowed it with a straight face. Aunt Helen was in love with him, how else would she do all these things for him? It was love and he loved her back, she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
One day, she picked him up from school and kissed him on the mouth when he got home, the maid saw them. She didn’t like the look of it, she told his Mother, that maid and her big mouth. His mother was not oblivious to how her son had changed in the past few months, he was more serious now. Spent more time alone and didn’t even meet his friends to go out and play or to the mall and hangout. He didn’t show interest in girls, God forbid her son was gay.. She prayed against it and even told her fears to the Pastor. So when the maid told her that Aunt Helen kissed Jared straight on the mouth the way Alenjandro and Maria do in “Mi Corazon,” she was shocked and relieved but also disgusted. She had to have seen it wrongly, Helen was like a second mother to her children there’s no way she can defile her own family.
The next time Helen dropped by to pick Jared, she followed them on a boda. Of course she didn’t expect to unearth anything, but for her peace of mind she had to find out. They drove to one of Helen’s properties, she waited 20 minutes before bribing the askari to let her into the compound. He looked worried, shocked and sort of relieved like a burden had been carried off his shoulders. She ran up the stairs in a haze, so many thoughts going through her mind, she was going to kill Helen, how could she do this? Her poor Innocent boy, what had Helen done to him? She heard noises, opened the door and fainted.
Jared was in shock, Aunt Helen grabbed a bedsheet then ran out, he heard the car start and drive off, then there was silence. His mother was lying face down in the doorway, he dressed up as the Askari carried her downstairs, his heart was racing, Mom was going to kill him. No, she was going to obliterate his whole life out of this world.
Several months, his Parents were tiptoeing around him. He had been canned and sent to Jajja’s home, she was strict and very Catholic and no excuses in her home. How could such a tiny woman be so scary! He was told that what Aunt Helen did to him was wrong and she was supposed to go to prison. Aunt Helen went to the UK, Mom said she was pregnant with his child and that is all she wanted, her own child not her step sons. Her name was banned from their lives, she was a taboo now, he never saw her again. His parents treat him like a tainted carpet now, he feels nothing now. They took his happiness away, how could what Aunt Helen did to him be wrong when it felt good?
Did you know that most defilement of young boys is done by close family or friends? Did you know that young boys are affected everyday by things we think are trivial? Save a boy’s innocence by joining the Straight Talk Foundation under the Youth Enterprise Model and also a teenage girl’s life. Early sex and pregnancy is not something a child should be involved in.
