I was living in the village with my parents when my aunt Ms Becky came to take me to Lagos to live with her. I was very much overwhelmed as I thought I had seen the route out of what seemed a low life at that time. Ms Becky saw me through Primary and Secondary education in Lagos but everything changed not long after that.
She lost her job along the line and that led to my inability to further my education. I was sent back to the the village by my aunt, Ms Becky when things became too difficult for her. Life in the village was really hard especially due to the fact that I had experienced an easier and better way of living and this was like learning to adapt to life in the village all over again.
While on the brink of giving up on myself, my cousin brother showed up and I felt relieved. He told my parents he wants me to go with him to Warri and promised to enroll me for a vocational course when I get to Warri which was an offer my parents could not resist. I could not wait to leave the village myself and this was the perfect opportunity to achieve that.
My first few months in Warri was nothing short of perfect. My cousin brother was caring, friendly, understanding and always did all he could to make me happy but something strange happened. I woke up one night with the perception of someone touching me and the sight was surprising. My cousin brother was all over me in an attempt to sleep with me.
I made him to stop with threats of screaming and he came the next day to apologize saying he didn’t know what came over him. I speedily forgave him and I thought that was it though I was very careful with him from that point. Things never remained the way they were at first as my cousin changed from that day.
