I used to be so terrified that I begged her not to inform my step mom, as a result of she is going to kill me if she knew that I ate the canine’s leftover as an alternative of throwing it away. The girl wept and promised to give me meals on a regular basis with out my stepmother’s information, a promise she saved until we left the compound. As if ravenous me was not sufficient punishment, my Stepmother flogged me mercilessly till I’d faint at occasions. She would additionally apply pepper in my vagina, eyes, armpit and neck, tie me up and abandon me in one of many bogs for days with out meals.
In truth, no week handed with out pepper being utilized on me for minor offenses a baby might commit like failure not to wash garments or dishes properly, It wasn’t as if I stole or instructed a lie or fornicated. During these darkish days of my life, I usually prayed for demise, nevertheless it by no means got here.
Despite all these experiences, I used to be very vivid academically and was beloved and favored by God and people. I knew that the one method to escape was to obtain academic success, so I by no means joked with education.
