A seventeen year old girl had recently lost her step mom. All of a sudden this boy came into her life and took all of her sadness away. He said the sweetest things to her and she became happy around him. However, whenever she wanted to be with her friends he would never let her. This happened day after day and he started to control her life. She had to call him everywhere she went and meet him in the morning, during lunch, and after school. She never spent time with her friends and was always with him. After while she realized she had enough and tried to break up with him. However he did not let her and threatened to hurt himself and her if she did. He also started sending her hurtful messages and voice mails.
