The End

I was given tips to have drinks with a man.
Then I felt sick and everything went black.
I woke up in a hotel room.
I am not allowed to leave.
The man told me I belong to him now.
He said if I escape without my identification papers the police will put me in prison.

The Freedom people taught me to open my own drinks. They gave me a number to call if I get in trouble. They also told my boss that they would come back and check on me regularly. They taught me ways to escape if I get in trouble.

I feel a lot safer now, but I want to leave this job.

They are teaching me to read and write so I can get a better job.
