Our Elders say that a growing child who doesn’t know that hiding is a part of womanhood is a chick who dances before the watch of the hawk even as a prey. I went inside and sat in the armless cane chair in the sitting-room, he was drinking a half devoured bottle of beer that evening and I wonder if the man dey do anything apart from drinking.
He finished the beer and staggered to sit beside me, he started touching my bare laps and I kept removing his hand. He started telling how soft and sweet my skin is and how beautiful am growing fast, I no want fat women their trouble. The man wife fat pass Big Daddy the wrestler and I dey imagine how the woman go climb ring fall on top of me if I get anything to do with her husband.
He became furious and locked the door, went inside his room and came out with a gun in his right, na wa oh! now now it have reach gun level.
Schoolboy: you wan co-operate with officer of the law twenty bullet or you wan die?!
Me: no… I …go co-operate.
Schoolboy: pull your shirt now!
Me: *I pull it fast fast* I don do am.
Schoolboy: *he start groping the sweet mangoes on my chest one by one* sas your chest fine, oya pull your skirt sharp sharp.
Me: *I pull down the zip of my skirt and my skirt drop on the floor* I don pull am. He pulled down his zip and brought out the biggest di-ck that I have ever seen in my life, no wonder his wife wan die on top of the marriage. So this is what the fat woman is enjoying all by herself, this woman greedy oh.
He asked me to kneel and put it in my mouth, I was skeptical first because the last time I did it to a person. He landed in the hospital, as I covered my mouth with his kulikuli he screamed and asked me to leave or he will shoot me. I wore my shirt and skirt, I opened the door and met his fat wife entering the verandah, I ran past her without a word and headed home. From that day I stopped going to local gin message for Grace. Lai lai make she go buy for herself.
A new neighbor parked inside the flat that was next to us, the policeman that own the flat have been transferred so he decided to rent it out to a tenant, the guy just dey terrorize everybody in the area. If you wear short skirt commot out em godey shout holy ghost fire and he will start praying that the demons of nakedness should leave you alone.

Titus: wear something wey godey cover all your body, big big gown go fit do am. Cover your hairs too.
Me: I no get that kind clothe oh.
Titus: come my room for night for deliverance.
Me: no problem.
Our Elder say a dog who bite every stranger will forget the smell of the owner one day. That evening someone pounded our door and I opened the door to see Schoolboy’s balloon wife at the door, she pushed me away and I stumbled to the chair.
As Grace sight the woman she ran inside the room and locked herself. The woman started threatening her that if she see her close to her husband, she go deny herself for mirror.
Grace later came out when the woman is gone and I asked her if what the woman say that she has been sleeping with her husband is true, Grace just reply say na so she dey fight everybody wey near her husband. I still dey wonder which kind near she mean oh.
That night I went to brother Titus apartment and received the sweetest deliverance, that I will not be able to forget.
