When I was on the ground holding the ball, she made the kick, but instead of kicking the ball, she kicked my nose with the bottom part of her cleat. As I was groaning in pain, I let go of the ball and she scored. Although she made a goal, it didn’t count because she kicked the ball while I had it in my arms when she’s not supposed to.

Call me ugly and a whore saying I told you so and that I should have listened to her. It a scary thought, living without…
