One Day, Amanda was at her boyfriend Zach's house in his bedroom listening to some music. When all of a sudden, Zach said 'If you ever break up with me or tell anyone about what I am saying, I will come to your house and kill you.'
Amanda was in shock and very scared, she did not know what to do. She remembered seeing an ad on Instagram for the 'Kids Help Line' and thought that it was the best option to text them for advice.
So Amanda was texting one of the counsellors and telling them what had just happened with Zach. The counsellors' advice was to first remove herself from the situation. So in a calm voice Amanda told Zach that she had to quickly go to the toilet.
When Amanda went to the bathroom, she immediately called her dad to come pick her up from Zach's house as something had happened. She told her dad to be quiet and to meet her down the street so Zach wouldn't see the car.
When in the car with her dad, Amanda was crying and telling her dad what Zach had said and how she was so scared of him. She also said that this wasn't the first time, something like this had happened but she was too scared to say anything.
That afternoon, Amanda and her dad went to the police station to report Zach and how he verbally abused and threatened Amanda. From that day onwards, Amanda knew that she was safe as she had shared her issue with her dad and the police.
