All the women were laughing because they thought he had to go to the bathroom really bad and that he had waited a long time. And so later that day, I think I was supposed to go get somebody some water. And I had gone to the kitchen and I was coming back with the water.

Eliza also experienced violence in her adult relationships. She began the conversation about her adult encounters by recounting a fairly recent incident of being hit in the face by a long-time friend with whom she’d become romantically involved. She was shocked and amazed when it happened. She considered him a friend, so his violence was particularly unexpected. It reminded her of the time when her jealous ex-husband strangled her during a family trip. She remembered the horror and how important it was to stay quiet while he nearly choked her to death in the hallway of their friend’s home because she didn’t want the children to wake up and see what was happening.

(I still to this day don’t understand how my mother who sees all [did] not see that this man was molesting her three daughters). I remember as a little girl he would dress us all up as little baby dolls.
