Give me your phone! I know you are texting the people I told you not to text with. You never listen to me!! You are a horrible person.
I am so tired of you!! Stop telling me all these lies about how you didnt talk to them! Shut up before I make you!!
I was walking down the street to get the coffee, as I saw the couple of teens arguing about something. I stopped, as to look at my phone and listened to their conversation.
Hi! Sorry for interrupting. I am new to this town, and I would like to find a cafe, "Cookie" but I am not sure where is it. I saw you, lady, have merch from this cafe, could you show me the nearest one here?
I am going to see you at home by 8 pm.
I heard the guy blaming the girl for not giving him the phone, that he must've known the password to. As well as, I recognized that he did not allow her to talk to some people she wanted to.
Oh.... Thank you... I am truly scared of him... I dont know what to do..
Okay, Hello, I am Natali Oleinik, I am not actually new here. I was just passing by and saw you, and that man arguing. It seemed to me that you have an abusive relationship with him, and there was dating violence, which is a pattern of assaultive and controlling behaviors that one person uses against another in order to gain or maintain power and control in the relationship. Some of the signs that I saw was him wanting to see your phone, physical abuse mention and him calling you "a horrible person" for not giving him your phone. This is most likely physical and emotional abuse combined. I am so sorry you have to go through this relationship, but just know that you arent alone and there is a safe way out.
As the shouting continued, along with the notes of physical abuse happening, I decided I needed to do something.
It is okay to not know what to do. I am here to help you. You are not wrong here. He is abusing you and he should be responsible for this. For anonymous, confidential help, 24/7, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY). Write this down. Also, if you need a safe place to stay while the proffecional people help you not see him again, you can stay in my place or perhaps, I can get you to the hotel hour away from here, so he wouldnt find you quickly.
I decided to step in, and pretend to be new in the town. I noticed she had a backpack from nearby famous cafe in the town. I wanted specifically HER to show me the route. He wasn't that interested in her hobbies and interests so he didn't go with us. Thankfully.
I decided to tell her who i am, and make sure she realizes that this is an abusive relationship and that there is a way out of this relationship.
The phone helplines is what she might need, so I provided them, as well as I recommended her to stay in the safe place not close to here, to make sure he wouldn't find her, before the professionals would be able to help.
