Last weekend, Friday to be precise, I got a call from my cousin that I should come around that he wants to flex me ,I hurriedly prepared and headed to the school gate. As I stepped out from my hostel gate(l stay in the school hostel) I heard “Hello, the girl on call, fine geh, nwanyi ocha”I turned around and saw two men, one waving and smiling at me, ignored since their faces was nothing close to familiar.
As I approach the school gate, in front of HSC, a car pulled over in front of me and wind down to talk to me as I calmly listened, “I call you when you were in Bam but you see busy so decided to use my car and trace you, I will like to gift you a lift’. For no reason, I was irritated and just wanted to leave the arena without creating a scene, lI quietly declined his offer .
and made to leave when he began again “you are a fine girl and I will like to know you if you mind”, ‘well, I mind as I’m in haste to catch up with someone’ again, I made to leave and he asked for my contact, in a bid to discharge him, I willy-nilly gave my number.
At about 8:30/9pm ish I got a call from an unknown caller but was unable to pick as I was on call, he called again and again but I was still on call. When I dropped the call, I called back only to hear” heeloo, Chinaza how are you, come to Toscana hotel now I want to see you” I was briefly dumbfounded and don’t even know what to reply, he repeated himself before I ended the call.
He called back and repeated himself and even added ‘nne don’t form too much, umuasa IMT don’t have time for that’, God knew I was angry but lacked the words and action to express it… The next day, I woke up to 15missed calls and the sms below.
Till date, I’m still shocked at how some men objectify most women they come acrosss. I step out 5times and I get harassed 3times or more, it’s either they touch me or say derogatory remarks when I don’t respond to their saucy jokes. I shaa don’t blame them… I’m glad most men I know respect women. Till we get to the promised land it’s all
