“My parents were not around so I was asked to stay with my aunt. This guy used to come around, he was a family friend and he came one afternoon. I don’t know what he discussed with my aunt. My aunt then sent me to her room to pick something for her. When I got to the room, I saw this guy in the room and he started proposing to me. I was only 15 years old then but people thought I was old because of my stature. He started touching me while removing his clothes and unzipping his trousers. I don’t know where the strength came from when I pushed him and run down the stairs crying. When my parents got back, I couldn’t tell them”.
