When I asked him for my phone back he told me that he sold it. He says that he's just doing it to protect me.

He's much older than I am and more experienced in relationships so I want to trust him, but I really miss my mom and my sisters.

I was going to sneak out to visit them two days ago but he locked me in the bathroom and braced a chair up against the door so I couldn't leave. I haven't even been to school in like two weeks.

I borrowed the neighbor's phone and called my mom to pick me up but I'm really worried about what he's going to do when I eventually go back home to him.

Is this normal behavior in a new relationship?
