They Called Her Shameless – This is the first story I am posting on here and I think it is actually longer than I envisioned but it’s for a better reading experience. I hope to get your honest feedback and suggestions. Enjoy 🙂
They Called Her Shameless
Whilst living under his roof, he went on to rape her every night for the next 8 years and every time he’d curse her parents for not marrying her off at his request. He puts the blame of him raping her solely on them. Maybe if they’d married her off he wouldn’t still be sexually attracted to her because she was married.The first few times it happened Phoebe reported to her uncles wife, Aunt Felicia, who didn’t believe her. She beat and rained curses on her whilst accusing her of trying to destroy her family just like she and her witch siblings destroyed theirs. She promised to send her to meet her parents before she lets that happen. As punishment, Phoebe was withdrawn from school to start hawking. The uncle claimed he did not have enough money to sponsor them all to school.
Phoebe eventually ran away one early morning, leaving her siblings behind. She vowed to come to come back for them as soon as she got enough money saved up. For several weeks she slept wherever her eyes closed and she’d have her bath very early in the morning at any public water system she could find.Other times, the water would not run and she’d go for days without a bath. No one was ready to help a dirty looking kid they knew nothing about so she ate whatever she could scavenge, also she bought food from whatever she made collecting alms. She even grew adept at climbing mango and orange trees to pluck fruits. In her mind no greater evil could befall her than the evil her uncle and the world had done to her.
One day, she went on what she had told Madam Kofo would be her last outing as she felt she had achieved everything she had initially set out to achieve. But she never returned home from her night banking and no one heard anything from her. The newspaper headlines two days later read;
“PROSTITUTES HEADLESS BODY FOUND LAYING IN THE BUSH.”
“SUPPOSEDLY DEAD PROSTITUTE PHOEBE OBI IS ALIVE”
Please let me rant o, biko!!
