We all get together for big family events – holidays, birthdays, marriages. Today, the whole clan is together to celebrate my 18th birthday. I love my family, cherish our traditions – but there's one I've never heard of before. When Daddy and my big brother and Grandpa take me off alone to a secret room, I learn quickly that some traditions are more savage than others, and while they all give me great birthday presents, they also take away something – my purity. All three of them. At the same time.
