Mikey is 17 but looking back to when he was 14 and how he was groomed into criminal exploitation / county lines. MIKEY: So there was this girl..Jess. She asked me if I wanted to go to this party. I tried to play it cool. Gave it all ‘Not sure babe….have to check my diary!’…but my brain was just screaming ‘YESSS!!!!’. She was just so fit! The party was at Jess’ cousin Kalum’s place. Kalum was cool. Said I could hang at his anytime. Said “help yourself, mate to beers and weed”. Then one day Kalum asked me for money…I was like “Er…what money?” and he’s like “for the food, the beers, the weed!”. I panicked…I was skint! But Kalum was all “Chill…you can pay me back. I just need you to drop off a ‘package’ for me”. Now…I’m not stupid. I knew it was probably drugs…but it was just the once….right? I was on my way to do the drop when Bam! I was pushed to the ground and kicked hard. I got up to fight back but..but it was all over. They’d gone…..I’d lost Kalum’s drugs!
