My name is Adaku, though, that is not my actual name.
In 2014, I graduated from Unizik, Mass Communication as a discipline.
In 2016, I was called to partook in the National Youth Service Corps” where I served my father’s land in Enugu State.
I never knew any man then, until I met Unku. He is dark, balanced on average height. He has this bold look that makes him look intimidating. It created different perceptions about his personality, but that explanation is reserved for those who doesn’t know him personally.
We met at a restaurant there in Enugu, so after exchanging numbers, we got talking, knowing each other and things began developing deeply.
6 weeks later, he invited me over to his house. He lived in a comfortable 2 bedroom flat.
I don’t know why I accepted to visit him in his house instead of an open place, but I trusted him, I trusted he will understand my wish and not demand sex with me.
Then, my mind traveled down a long memory lane, when I was still in school. I detested girls who had boyfriends. I used to see them as worthless children of Satan, who enjoyed hurting God with their bodies, instead of keeping them holy. I remembered not helping a girl in the exam because she had a boyfriend, I also ignored shifting for a girl to sit beside me during a lecture because she had a boyfriend. I ignored engaging with worldly sinners during a group assignment. I always managed to link myself with classmates who attended the same fellowship with me and have the group assignment done with them. But if the selection was the one made by the lecturer, then I will have no other option than to manage them, though I won’t be actively involved, even if it means failing the course. I rather fail the course than to mingle with unbelievers,
NThis is just for you to understand the severity of my discrimination against the people I called “unbelievers, sinners and worldly people”
But seriously, was I been awful? I see them as great sinners and shouldn’t be associated with.
“So Adaku, what are you now? Have you forgotten your promise to God? Why sinning against him now?”
I found myself in a battle with my mind.
“No, Unku won’t be that wicked. He will definitely respect the fact that I’m a virgin and won’t touch me. But what is it with people and sex? Must they have sex before marriage? I disagree to fall into that category. I will teach them how to have a man and make him do your biddings without demanding for sex. I won’t allow any man who is not my husband to deflower me”
Yes, I finally gave my heart the assurance she needed and then took off to Unku’s house.
“I’m about to explore a world I knew nothing about but I’m determined to make a difference” I kept gathering the courage.
