Each morning, I wake up my 10-year-old son, Nicholas, cook him breakfast, and put him on the bus to school. I might get a text or phone call from my daughter, Tania, who is 20, or chat with my mother, Theresia, who sometimes stays with Nick and me.These days, I'm surrounded by people who love and care for me.Dom had said that he wouldn't have anything to do with Jess if she confessed to bedding Mike but said he could see a future with her if she continued to deny her tryst.He also said he wanted to confront Mike when he left the villa and now he's got his wish as the boys met for a pint to hash things out.Jess was fussing over Mike and he was being very affectionate towards her.“They were all over each other, the crew couldn't believe their eyes. “Obviously, you [Jess] and Dom had a connection in there, and if I was in his shoes…Since then Jess and Mike have been on numerous nights out and appeared on This Morning together.
If she says it isn’t true I will believe her.” Sitting outside a pub in London, the pair looked smitten before heading back to their hotel.When we weren't with a sex buyer we'd be at blackjack tables.I thought about escaping all the time, but someone with a weapon was always watching us. I had been set up by the woman who gave me the phone number. But while he was on the phone, I saw an opportunity to escape. It was cold outside, and I was wearing only shorts and a T-shirt. I went to the police station, churches, and the Indonesian consulate, but no one would help. A man wearing a Navy uniform approached and asked what was wrong.In 1998, the Indonesian economy collapsed and I lost my job. My savings were worthless, and the job market was dismal—I knew I'd have to leave the country to find work. With money like that, Tania's education would be more than covered, so I paid a ,000 recruitment fee up front, and in June 2001, a week before my 25th birthday, I boarded a plane for America. As if to punish me for questioning him, the man led me at gunpoint to the garage and pushed me into a car. In that moment it clicked—I'd been sold into a sex trafficking ring. I realized that if I ever wanted to see her again, I had to do what I was told. When I objected to his advances, he pushed and hit me. In the morning a man took me back to the townhouse where the two other girls were staying.One day I saw an ad in a newspaper for a contract job waiting tables at a hotel in the U. When I landed at an airport in New York City, a Malaysian man named Johnny was there to meet me. Five other girls and one young man had also arrived from Indonesia at about the same time to meet Johnny. I had learned a little English in school, and said, "No! Johnny came in and said, "I'm so sorry about what happened to you." He was kind and warm, and rubbed my back. He told me to give him my passport and plane ticket home for safekeeping.
