Hannah Brown ~ ABUSE HAPPENS - Card #1


You and Travis are hanging out at his house.  You have to leave in 15 minutes to meet your friends at the movie theater, but he doesn’t want you to leave. “You never want to spend time with me!”

“That’s not true, I’m here now.  Why don't you come with us to the movie?  It will be fun!”

“Last thing I want to do is watch a stupid movie with your stupid ‘friends’.  Besides, I think you would feel weird hanging out with your other boyfriend with me sitting next to you.”

“Luke is not my boyfriend.  We’ve been best friends since we were four, nothing more.”

“I don’t like the way he looks at you.  Clearly he wants to be more than ‘friends’.” Making those stupid air quotes you hate because he always uses them when talking about Luke. “You always talk about him.  I’ve hit my limit!  Either you stop hanging out with him or we are done.”

You are feeling really overwhelmed and need to leave.  You tell him he’s being jealous for no reason and that you will see him later.  You leave.

What's next?

If you want to talk with your friend Amanda before the movie, go to:



Travis’s thoughts: Hannah is being so unreasonable.  Once she stops talking to her “friend” Luke, everything will be better.
