Oluchi, travails of terror ( Episode 7 )
Oluchi saw this as the final straw that broke the camels back. Driven out of her fathers house by a woman who meant only evil for her was a not more than she could stomach considering the fact that she was returning from the hospital .
What use was it trying to gain access to the house anymore ?
Her entire life savings was gone , collected by Stella , and she had had no prior intentions of leaving with her clothes .
What was to be done had to be done, and turning around, without saying goodbye to either her siblings or her father , she walked out of the house promising herself never to return .
It was a hard nights walk she made , and twelve am found her in a deserted street she knew not where.
She saw a trailer park , and because she was cold , hungry and tired, she decided to sleep on a bench she spotted a few feet from her .
She had hardly dozed off when she felt strong hands awaking her .
“ Who you be ?” Were the first words she heard as she opened her eyes drowsily.
“ So you no fit answer abi?” Her interrogator continued , and to press home the point that he meant serious business, a hard slap was landed on her left cheek. That brought her back to consciousness quite quickly and she made feeble attempts at explaining her predicament while rubbing her smarting cheek.
“ Please have mercy on me ” she concluded after telling her tale of woes.
By now , she had a partial glimpse of her torturer, and from the little she saw, he was a heavily bearded tall thickly built barrel chested man with a prominent scar running down his left cheek. What was more scary however was the fact that he was flanked by two equally scary men who kept mute throughout the exchange .
“ So you think you go just come my zone, you no pay one naira and you just dey sleep yakata like say na your papa build this place abi?, oya I go tech you lesson”
He ordered his boys to hold oluchi down, and right there in the bench , took of her skirt and undies , casting them aside , he pulled down his trouser and releasing his engorged member and without a pause entered her in one move . Oluchi screamed her loudest as he kept on going at in , huffing and panting like his life depended on it, and after what seemed like an eternity, pulled out of her obviously satisfied .
“ Choi, you sweet well well o . E be like say na even virgin . No be only me go enjoy. Boys ! Get to work ”
He ordered his boys to take turns at her and despite her pleas and screams, they all raped her and leaving her in a pool of blood , escaped into the night .
Oluchi had grand dreams of how she would lose her virginity, it would be on the night of her marriage and her husband would be calm and gentle . This was not any of those things , and she wept and wept till she faded into a faint.
The next morning, she awoke quite early, before the dawn , and cleaning herself up as best she could , she started wandering the streets thoroughly drained of emotion .
She didn ’ t have a change of clothes and she was forced to steal some she found hanging outside a house she passed . They were neat and dried , and surprisingly her size.
Changing from her blood stained clothes to her new ones, she proceeded to do the next logical thing . Job hunting . Without a secondary school certificate , her options were limited , and by the close of that day, she was ready to call it quits , and deciding there was nothing to be gained from life anymore , decided to end her miserable existence .
