The subject of Blooming Justice is as old as time – and as modern as the evening news. No one is above the law no matter their money or influence, and rape is a heinous crime.
It started out as bullying at the senior prom. Some would call it sexual harassment, but there was nothing sexual about it for Todd. He just wanted to impress his friends with how easy geek girls were when they thought a rich, attractive young man was interested in them. It was about power, not sex.
But this time, he messed with the wrong geek girl. Erin was embarrassed and ran from the ballroom to the safety of home. But she was smart. She was not going to let one embarrassing moment dictate her life. She had plans and they didn’t include a boy with too much money and not enough morals. She was as mad at herself as she was at him. After all she accepted the date.
When college started in the fall, she had a great job at her aunt’s law firm doing grunt grunt work while she took classes. She didn’t fit in at the firm. Everyone knew she was the niece of one of the partners and the only other thing she’d done in her life was work at her mother’s flower shop. It was a long way from a flower shop to a law office, but she would do it. School was easy, sometimes life was not.
Tulsa University had a three-year bachelor’s degree that led into a law degree and that was what Erin wanted. She had always admired her aunt and her position in life, and she wanted to be like her. She would make this work.
And then she began to hear rumors of women being date raped on campus and she was sure she knew who the rapist was. He was no longer just sexually harassing his partners. She knew some of the women and if she could get enough of them together to tell their stories, all the money in the world would not save Todd.
He was going down.
