I lost my parents to ghastly motor accident in an early age of five. From that time, I was moved from one family member to the other like a luggage changing hands at will. Introduced to child labour at a very young age, I was exposed to pornography by my older cousins and finally introduced to the ultimate; sex at the tender age of nine. As if that was not enough for a young girl, I was introduced to drugs. The one to keep from getting pregnant and the ones to keep me numb no matter the number of men I had to sleep with per day!!!
The story of my life is a series of one calamity to another. Going from bad situation to worst. Moving from an abusive aunty to an abusive uncle and then to a cousin finally as a sex hawker! Can you imagine anything worse happened to any living mortal? I doubt it!
I suffered emotional, psychological, physical abuses. Anything bad happening around me is always blamed on me as I was referred to as “mammy water” because of my fair skin and my unfortunate history of trailing evil.
Along the line, I met a guy who loved me despite having a glimpse of my past. He is asking my hand in marriage but I am afraid to open up to him that my past is uglier than ugly, more painful than pain itself. The truth is I am born again and I believe I have been forgiven by God.
How do I explain my ugly past to this God-fearing and easy-going gentleman? I am torn in between letting him go or opening up to him that I was worse than a whore in my past life!
Candid advice is badly needed.
The story as usual is a blend of true life and fiction.
Tade and Nkechi episodes will continue after this next week. Thanks
