    "I’m just getting ready to go out. We’re going to Shaun’s uncle’s house to jam. Before we started going there all we did was sit around in parks, but now we got this nice house to go to. He’s got a nice car as well, an Audi, he said one day he’s gonna let me drive it. He’s got everything in his house, an entertainment centre with a 60 inch flat screen 4k TV, massive speakers, we can watch Netflix or play ps4, xbox, whatever we want.

    Sometimes he goes out and let’s us stay there on our own. Oi one time I bunked off school and he let me stay round there. When we’re round there, we don’t need to worry about anything. He buy’s us food, lets us smoke weed, even buys us alcohol.

    Last night I was there and this thing starts flashing up on the computer, I couldn’t get rid of it. He came in and says why you looking at porn? I thought he was gonna switch, but then he was like na its cool and starts showing me loads more, some mad dirty stuff.

    It’s so good round there, I feel so comfortable, he’s not like other adults. He said I can go round there whenever I want. Anytime I’ve got trouble at school or I wanna get away from home he said just go to him. He’s safe man."
