For my story, it's about a man who is raped by a serial rapist woman who is on the loose, doing it to others as well. I want for the man, the MC, to have his gf find out that another woman raped him but I thought she would react the wrong way, and have the wrong feelings about it, thereby ruining the MC's relationship, thereby causing him to want revenge even more. Perhaps the relationship gets repaired later in the story, but I haven't decided that yet. I was thinking of ways she could find out he was raped. My first way was to have him be taken hostage, tied to the bed, and raped at his house. Then she would come in see him there, but think the sex was consensual, and that he was cheating on her with some rough bondage type looking situation. She would then storm out mad, not realizing he was kidnapped and being raped. This would cause him to be furious with her, and put more conflict within him. However, I was told by a couple of readers, that this comes off as a cliche or a trope, cause there have been countless stories, where a woman will walk in on a man and another woman, and mistaken it for something that it is not. It is true, that has been done many times, and I even called out that cliched while watching a movie with a friend once, so maybe I have to put to acknowledge the cliche myself now, so to speak. Should she find out a different way, later, where he would tell her, or maybe the rapist would tell her? Or would she not react in a way, that would cause conflict, if she loves him, and would care if she found out, or saw such a thing. What do you think?
