Entry #14: A little talk with Juan.


Juan is in my PE class and after class, while we were getting dressed I decided to find out what he knew about Dee wanting to break up with me. I didn't come right out and say anything about breaking up, I just said that I had heard that he and Dee had had a conversation. Juan acted all weird when I mentioned Dee's name. He asked me if Dee had said anything about him. I told him no, that Dee hadn't told me anything. That I had heard this from Marita who heard it from Flora who said she heard it from him. So I wanted to know what was going on.

Then he said, "Hey man, I'm you're friend. You know that. And no way would I want to hurt you, but there's something that you ought to know."

Well, what is it?

"It's something about Dee, but I think you should really hear it from her."

Well, I told Juan that as long as he brought it up, that he should just tell me himself. So he did.

He told me that the afternoon that me and Dee got a ride home with Victor and I went out to the Quik Stop for a few minutes, that Dee had come on to Juan in the car. "She said she really liked me. I tried to fight her off man, 'cause you're mi amigo, but she was wild with passion you know?

He must have thought that I didn't believe him , or something, because then he said, "You don't believe me? Hey, I can understand that. No man wants to think about his woman cheating on him! But she did! She even gave me this hickey!"

And he showed me a small red bruise on his neck.

"I told her I wasn't interested. That I was loyal to you like a brother and I would not fool with your woman. No way!"

Then Juan left and I walked to my locker, totally confused.

Dee and Becca were standing and talking near the lockers. When they saw me, Becca gave Dee a push in my direction then Becca took off.

Dee apologized for acting so weird but that she had a lot on her mind.

Then I asked her if she wanted to break up with me. I was preparing myself for the worst. But she said, "No!" And I could tell by the way she said it, she was really surprised that I asked.

Then she told me that Juan had sexually harassed her in Victor's car that afternoon. She told me the whole thing and how terrible she felt afterwards and why she was afraid to tell me about it. When I heard what she went through I felt like killing Juan. Dee asked me if I believed her and of course I did. It all made sense to me now and I was going to beat the crap out of that filthy liar, Juan. But Dee said that she did NOT want any fighting going on because of what happened. She said she was not a weak little princess that needed to be rescued. She was a strong woman and was taking care of this herself. She wanted me to promise that I would let her fight her own battles. I promised. Then she gave me a hug and kissed my check. For the first time in a week I felt in tune again.
