A night of studying...
I was lucky. What if something had happened...would I be doubted? Would I have to defend myself, knowing that I did nothing wrong? Would I begin to doubt myself?
Why do you wear that short, shiny "swimsuit" every Saturday? Why did you choose to walk alone from the library at midnight? Why were you carrying your books that way so that someone might think you needed assistance? Who were you talking to at the library that night? Did you flirt with anyone in a way that might make them think you were "interested"? Why were you wearing what you were wearing that night? Why did you choose that specific route back to the dorm? Where was your boyfriend? Were you trying to make your boyfriend jealous by encouraging others? Who saw you fighting with your boyfriend before leaving the library? Why didn't you call a cab?
Looking back, would I have reported an incident?
My boyfriend was on the football team. Did one of his fellow players see us arguing and see me leave alone? What if something had happened and I would have reported it and it would have been someone well known on campus? What would have happened to me? My credibility? My reputation? My psyche?
