When I was in Mosul I tried to flee to Mt. Shingal.

I hid in a small empty house but they found me.

A man asked "Why did you flee? Are you afraid we will kill you?"

I told him I preferred to die.

They took me back to my captor's home.

He hanged me upside down on a ceiling fan and whipped me with a cable.

After a while, he took me down and said the punishment will continue for three days.

I was also not to eat or drink for three days.

He threatened next time I run away he'd tie me between two cars and split me apart.
