Here it is, in rebloggable text format. Posted by Anonymous on 4chan
So, to let everyone know the situation before I begin, I’m in a wheelchair.
I have no use of my legs after getting into a carcrash at 15, that also lost my brother who was 17 and the driver.
It was all very terrible, but I’m 20 now, while it obviously still haunts us and was very sad, we remember my brother’s birthday every year still, and we get on with life.
I’m more or less used to being handicapped, I try not to let it affect me more than it has to.
I always cosplay hipster Ariel at cons, so it’s often tumblr and/or 4chan people I attract, so many people in the anon masks usually ask for my pictures and creep on me a bit.
Previously I’d gone with my girlfriends (as in best friends) but this year Adam wanted to take me, he’s always been really into anime, more than me actually, but he’s had to work on the days the cons have fallen on, it sucks, he bitches about it every time. This year, however, he was lucky enough to not be working!
So we got all excited, packed up together, left our dogs with his parents and organised when to meet our friends, Adam was driving a group of six of us there, crammed into his work car (a four by four that would fit all of us, and me and my chair) so we got up early, let them into the house as he packed the car up. I made breakfast for everybody and they shipped me in first, Adam carrying me in as usual, sitting me in the front, waiting for our last two friends to arrive.
I was in the front sorting out our music for the hours trip, friends were packing their stuff up in the back still, giving me a quilt to stuff in the front on top of my legs as there was no room for it elsewhere. It was exciting and fun, and then of course our last friends turned up.
Now, we hadn’t met our friend’s friend, Mandy. We assumed she would be normal like all of us were, but oh no. not at all. Kairi (as we’ve called our friend all through school) turned up looking annoyed, a large girl following behind wearing stretched childrens clothing, a tutu skirt and pink and black striped tights. I can only describe her as an emo attempt at Harajuku, failed attempt even, wearing shit loads of childrens bracelets and hairclips and frizzy managed poorly bleached greying hair, though she was our age.
I was first to see them walk up the driveway and out the wiindow, waving, giving Kairi a hug as she came over to the car, saying hello to everyone, and then at an impatient ‘NNNYEEEEHH’ and a foot stomp, she introduced Mandy to us. Mandy instantly corrected her ‘Manduri, duri-chan’
We all passed awkward hello’s noticing her poor behaviour right off the bat, she took her’s and Kairi’s things and packed up the bag, and Kairi leant at my window, looking stressed, talking with me quietly. She told me how annoyed she was and that Mandy had bitched and wormed her way into coming, she really didn’t want to take her, but their Mom’s were friends and such, awkwardly she had to take her, out of being polite to several people.
Running late, we got in, Duri-chan however wanted to sit in the front saying she got car sick, how it was so unfair that I got to sit in the front ‘just because I was the driver’s girlfriend’ So I turned around and explained that I was handicapped and had to sit here, offering to give her my hairband for her wrist to ease travel sickness. She didn’t apologise, merely humphed and refused to take it, sitting in the back with everyone else.
I put it off to her perhaps feeling unwell, and the drive up was normal, though for long drives I still get a bit anxious, so Adam was holding my hand when we stopped at lights or in traffic, comforting me slyly without saying anything, but rudely as he kept doing this, Duri noticed and sighed loudly, “Couples are so annoying, always touching each other in front of everyone!” sounding like a spiteful lonely person. Again, we shrugged it off and ignored her, Kairi kept telling her to shut up and stop being rude, but she seemed to be purposefully acting like a child, asking us ‘ARE WE THERE YET?’ all the time.
When we got there, everyone got out first but me, Adam throwing me over his shoulder as he always did, casually going about getting my hair out. I’m very, very lithe and underweight actually, I struggle to gain weight in general but it’s worse when I can’t exercise as much as normal people, I do physio therapy but I’m a very small girl. It’s easy for him to just carry me about, we make it sort of a joke, I once broke my chair and had to get it replaced and it took a week, he’d just have me casually over his shoulder around the house doing things, our friends and we thought it was funny.
So that happened, got in my chair, wheeled up with everyone to the hotel, when in the lobby Duri put her large gym bag of her stuff on my lap, complaining and whining that it was heavy. I blinked but didn’t mind, just took it, but Adam got offended for me, and tossed it back to her, saying not to dump things on me. She said ‘She can’t feel it anyway, why not?’ and I had to take his hand to stop him from punching her, he’s very protective of me.
We checked in, went on up and into the room, but found that alhough the hotel was wheelchair friendly, my beast wouldn’t fit through the hotel door, it just about nicked the sides. I sighed, let Adam take our bags in and he came back, chucking me over his shoulder and folding the chair up, carrying me in, leaving me there at his shoulder for the amusement, stood talking around, the general joke we have. I can’t explain it very well, like he won’t support my body, he’ll have his hands on his hips pretending that it’s totally normal for me to just be hanging off him, and it sort of is for us, but we find it funny. Duri however, didn’t.
“You sure do a lot for her.” she’d scoff at us walking past. He rolled his eyes, said it was our inside joke, and placed me down on the bed to sit. For a while her drama died down, just general rudeness and childish behaviour, Kairi was snapping at her for us for half the time. We set up and got on with things, hanging out for the day around the con area though it wasn’t on yet, meeting other early comers. Then in the evening we were invited with a group to go down to the bar.
Coming back around 8, I realised the implications of not being able to have my chair in the hotel room, I wouldn’t be able to go to the bathroom by myself (well I would, but not be able to move myself as I usually did), though Adam doesn’t care, he loves me very much and deals with it, but I felt embarassed in front of our friends and the strange Duri. I dealt with it, let him help me in the evening, we disappeared into the bathroom for some time as I peed and then did my hair and make up, and he showered up having cosplayed all day in hot leather.
I then let him carry me back into the room, jokingly he threw me onto the bed as he got his stuff out, I was giggling so it was obviously our idea of humour to chuck me about, but Duri gasped and ran over, pulling me up to sit, “How could you just throw her like that?! She’s crippled you know!” I hate the word ‘cripples’, shoved her off me but was nice about it, patting her arm saying it was a joke, I was fine. Rolled my eyes to Adam.
It was then we got about getting rather dressed up, all of us, though Duri didn’t make an effort just put on more hideous make-up. I needed a little help getting dressed but nobody cared, I stripped down to my bra and pants, and Adam helped me put some hold ups on, the whole time Duri was watching us, I felt a tad uncomfortable with her seeing me almost undressed. And then he slipped my dress on to my knees like he always did, pulling me to ‘stand’ though I wasn’t obviously, I held onto him as he pulled my dress up the rest of the way, and then Duri left for the bathroom saying ‘I can’t watch this it’s so sad seeing somebody so helpless’
Adam snapped that I wasn’t, but she hurried off to the bathroom pretending to CRY. Jesus, he was only helping me into my dress, and dumped me back down letting me do it up myself, we just have a routine of certain things I need help with, like tight clothing on my legs.
We were all ready waiting for Duri, who came out in some ‘lolita’ (so she said) dress, some polkadot cheap hot topic shit with a netted tutu at the bottom again. We felt embarassed, we were all very dressed up in cocktail dresses and Adam (the only boy) was wearing a suit, we were going to a five star hotel’s bar and possibly a very fanc resteraunt with our new friends we’d met early. We didn’t say anything about her outfit, just put our shoes on and left, Adam carrying me out and then sitting me in my chair, letting Kairi push me the way there, and Duri had to say ‘Letting somebody else push her for once, god!’ in such a bitchy way.
She just had issues with how we behaved, but I think it was mostly jealous of how ‘together’ we were. We arrived to meet our friends, sat in the bar with them for a good deal, talking, and Duri kept embarrassing us and being rude, but we ignored her, had a good night. Coming back was when the trouble started, she asked to push me and I said no, then oddly asked Adam to push me and he said no, so she threw a fit over it.
In the hotel, I was getting undressed with Adam on our bed, threw on a shirt of his I always sleep in and she huffed again saying how annoying we were as a couple, and that we were rubbing it in. For fuck’s sake, I said to her, and ignored her stupid Japanese come back, pretty tired and sleepy from drinking, and pulled myself up to bed, settling in to sleep as Adam went off to do whatever, getting changed in the bathroom, our friends settled down the same. It was then, in the calm silence, she asked it.
“How do you guys have sex? Like, can you feel pleasure?”
I didn’t reply, heard Kairi throw a pillow at her telling her to please shut the fuck up, but oh no she asked again.
Adam heard and from the bathroom yelled “HER SEX IS ON FIRE, SHE FEELS IT ALRIGHT. I ROCK HER WORLD.”
We all laughed, but I sat up, “I feel it, being handicapped this way doesn’t work like that.” And pulled Adam over as he came back, turning our light off so we were in darkness. Duri kicked up again saying she - a 21 year old actually - was afraid of the dark, and complained and bitched making me turn my side light on again. I put a shirt over it to dim it slightly but I totally struggled to sleep with it on.
Next morning, we woke up first, well, I cruelly woke Adam up as I couldn’t sleep, and he helped me get into the very, very tight Ariel costume. As I was putting on my seashells, topless (though everybody hadn’t woken up yet) I heard Duri screech from over on her air matress and proclaim she’d seen my breasts, and they were the perfect lolita breasts. I’m guessing because I’m so thin and flat chested? I’m a B cup, so… I covered myself, slipped my seashell bra on and felt so uncomfortable again. Everybody else woke up, got ready over an hour and we headed down, enjoying the con, me and Adam separated from the group only to avoid Duri’s annoyances, meeting up with them for lunch.
It was now Duri diagnosed that I had an eating disorder. I ordered a large chicken burger and fries, and ate all burger and half the fries, giving them to Adam and she proclaimed that I had an eating disorder, just because I was so thin. I tried to explain it was hard for me to gain weight with being handicapped but OH NO, she said I should just ‘get over it’ and eat. I sighed, told her up front that I was getting really annoyed with her and her remarks, and to just back the fuck off.
She turned to Kairi and said that I was a bully for saying that, but everyone agreed and just told her to leave me and Adam alone, as well as to stop being so damned rude.
Although she sulked and acted like the victim, she stopped for the rest of the weekend, only kicking up big time the leaving day which is when the actual horror happened. We packed up everything, had a lovely time, said goodbye to our new friends and got in the car, Duri tried to sit in the front so Adam made her move to the back in shock she did that, helping me in and bitching at her big time. Awkward drive before out friends filled the silence, making Adam listen to Lady Gaga and singing loudly, poor guy.
It was half way through we decided we were starving and pulled in at a big complex with different fast food bars and some shops, going to Maccydee’s and sitting down. I sat next to Duri, trying to get along with her, and we were left (her out of laziness) while they got ours and their food.
As i reached over, leaning to get m phone out of my bag as it went off, I heard “Wow, you didn’t even flinch, you really can’t feel it..”
Sitting back up, I gave her an odd look but saw it. She had stabbed me in the leg with a fork. It was metal, and had gone right into my leg through my tights, and I was bleeding really badly. I screamed at her ‘What the fuck?!’ and started crying instantly, perhaps because I hadn’t seen that much blood since the car crash, or that I was really scared, she’s fucking STABBED ME.
I sobbed and didn’t know whether to pull it out or not, but did, and it bled even more, running right down my leg. You wouldn’t think it would bleed that much but she’s forced it right in to the hilt, and it was awful, I told her to get away with me once she tried to come up ‘I DIDN’T MEAN TO I’M SORRY’ and backed off as some people looked at me crying so hard. Somebody came over, a mother with a family, and saw and instantly said ‘oh my god’ covering her mouth, it looked really really bad.
I held my leg, sobbing and asked her to call an ambulance, right away Adam came back with our friends at this point, threw his food down on the table and ran to me, kneeling and holding my leg too, asking what the fuck happened. I was crying so hard but managed to tell him she’d stabbed me with a fork, a whole group of people watching and somebody stopped her from leaving as she tried to get away, a big man stepping in and forcing her to stay there.
We waited for the paramedics, putting napkin after napkin on the wound, realising just how bad it was, and pretty quickly they got there along with the police, who instantly arrested her for assault. I was taken to the ambulance where they gave me stitches and dressed the wound, also putting me on a drip as losing blood could have dehydrated me, and I was also in shock. Adam and I agreed to press charges on her, she was actually taken into the police station, they said even if we didn’t what she did was so serious that she would be ‘dealt with’ anyway.
After about two hours of telling the police, and waiting for me to stop shaking, we were okay to go home, back to Adam’s parents not our place because I wanted to see his mom, who was like a second mom to me (mine was out of town, though at his I phoned and told her what had happened)
So I sat with his Mom having a cuddle and admiring my wound dressing, trying to laugh at it but it was really not laughable, and still isn’t. I’d love to tell you what happened, but we’re still in the process of taking her to court, we’ve had to get a lawyer and everything. This only happened in the last month actually.
She’s being tried for a hate crime and public assault, I think, Adam’s dealing with it more than I am right now. The whole thing is an expensive mess but if we win, which we will, she’ll pay for all our costs, but for now it’s expensive. That was pretty much the horror, my leg is still healing from it, I have sticky stitches on right now but no dressing, it’s obviously not painful to me, but that means I’m watching it more as to be careful not to knock it.
