She had survived, but at what cost? She was an itinerant professor, living in her head, not her heart. She had broken away, but abandoned her sister; hadn’t contacted her family in years.
Paulette wondered what she was looking for in these weekend workshops. Absolution wasn’t on the curriculum. What could she possibly hope to accomplish? To be a healer you need to connect with people. You need to touch, and let yourself be touched. And not just with your hands.
Watching these nurses, she envied them their friendships. Here were real buddies truly caring about each other, taking jabs, sharing private jokes and fears. She’d never had that. Even witnessing it from across a room, or a yard, only made her feel that much more lonely.
She got along with people well enough. Agreed with whatever they said, watched their pets, helped them move from one apartment to another. But no one really knew her.
Paulette had never been flush with self-confidence. People took that as humility, but humility isn’t painful and crippling. She hadn’t yet learned that humble and self-destructive aren’t the same thing at all. They’re not even on the same team.
And now here she was at a workshop for healers. Had she come here to heal; or to be healed?
It was one of those warm, charming days that write poems about themselves, and then settle these very softly into your mind. Paulette sensed what felt like a rain-laced breeze stirring her soul; sodden, and yet beautiful; laden with both the dismal, and the promising.

Read How Herbalist Killed 13-yr-old While Testing Anti-bullets Charm In Enugu
what do you think can be done on the herbalist, a situation like this.
please report any case of child abuse , cruelty and neglect.
Aboji, a 35-year-old prophet with Jesus Miracle Ministry, Ifite-Awka, is in police net for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old boy after a vigil.
According to Vanuard, Anambra State’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Nkeiru Nwode, said in Awka, yesterday, that the alleged defilement of the boy by the prophet occurred on August19 at the Church premises.
Nwode told newsmen that medical report showed that the victim sustained bruises on his neck and anus, adding that investigations were ongoing.
In Nwode’s words: Nwode said that the mother-in-law of the prophet was arrested; and that the suspect was later arrested on August 25, while attempting to settle the matter without involving police.
She described the incidence as “unfortunate” and advised parents to take proper care of their children.
However, Aboji denied the allegation, saying he only advised the boy against going home after the vigil for his safety.
The suspect said he was surprised to receive information that some irate youths, wielding dangerous weapons, had stormed his house with the allegation that he raped the minor.
On his part, the minor claimed that he woke up from sleep, when the suspected rapist grabbed him by the neck and unbuckled his belt.

This Is Just so Heartbreaking A Facebook user named Pregee Binaibi, who shared the photos, wrote:
“Can u imaging! On my way back from my sister’s place, i passed by the market. It was raining seriously,so much that i was seriously feeling feverish. It was 15minuits past seven and i was rushing home. On my way a man stopped the taxi i was in and begged the driver to help take a little girl who has been under the rain selling groundnuts. She was severing seriously and couldn’t walk. She almost fainted so the people around had to put her in a taxi cos she was walking home under the very heavy rain. Fortunately she was going my way so i offered to drop her at the junction were she lives. Getting there, it was still raining cats and dogs so i took her under a shelf away from the rain. I was curious to know why a parent will expose their child to such.
“I asked her some questions and she said she was 5years, left the house for the market in the morning to sell. I asked her what she ate and she said she drank just garri in the morning. Where is your mum i asked,and she said her mum was home doing nothing. How can parents be so irresponsible? This is child abuse. Exposing this little girl to such. I got her something to eat,and then took her home. Only to discover that she was actually staying with her father’s wife.

I was seven years old, young, naive and knew nothing about sexual practices until we moved from our face me, i slap you, house to a beautiful three bedroom flat. This house has a total number of four flats occupied by four different families.
The flat next to ours was occupied by an Igbo widow and her six children,and because, mum was always busy and often comes home late, she entrusted us (little sister and myself) into the care of one of the widow's children (Aunty Caroline) whose schoolmistress was next to ours.
Aunty Caroline was a secondary school girl, probably, in senior secondary school then, while i was in primary two. She was responsible for taking us to school and bringing us back, feeding us, helping with our assignments, playing with us, petting my little sister to bed while i wait for mum's arrival with her. Dad on the other hand, was a government worker in Abuja and would always comes home once in a month to check on us.
I grew fond of Caroline and got much more attached to her than i was to mum, probably because, she was the one playing the major roles of a parent to us.
She gradually initiated lesbianism as part of our play. She would act the man while the naive me would act the woman. She would fold my socks and had me wore her brazzziere, then, she'll fix the folded socks into the brazzziere. She was always squeezing my young breast or was it the socks rigorously, would touch my private part and lay ontop of me going forth and back. Sometimes, she'll ask me to lay ontop of her and do likewise. She had me swear to death with a bible incase, i try to tell someone about her little secret. And i never told anyone about it until, i clocked 20 when i had to tell my pastor about the past that had always hunted me.
This went on until we eventually moved into our house three years after. I always thank God i didn't get to become a lesbian because, he retraced my steps and bought me back with his love.
Now that, i am fully grown up and knew she took advantage of my naivety to molest and sexually harassed me, every part of me wants to find her and get her arrested and sued for child abuse and sexual harassment. Only that, my pastor kept preaching that i accommodate the spirit of forgiveness.
Do you blame the parents, Aunty Caro or the little girl?
I sincerely hope all parents and intending parents can learn from this.
The parents of this girl were probably too busy to notice that their little girl was being sexually abused by the one they entrusted with the care of our kids........
By jumoke Yusuf
So, a fourteen years old girl got impregnated, by her twenty- five years old neighbor right under her parents' nose. These parents out of fury, got the mentally derailed paedophile arrested for abusing their daughter sexually.
After the culprit had been in detention for three days, his parents started pleading on behalf of their son and agreed to take full responsibility of the child and her pregnancy. However, the father of the child refused and insisted that their son was going to rot in jail for his actions.
I later got to know that the police force, summoned the parents of the culprit and the victim for a peaceful settlement. The policemen pleaded on behalf of the culprit with the dumbest excuse that their daughter was not raped, the culprit will accept full responsibility of the pregnancy and that, it is unafrican to get their "INLAW" sent to prison. Like seriously??.... INLAW??
Trust me, i am still finding it hard to believe that the police force who were meant to protect the child's right law as stated in the constitution could reason this way. What a diplomatic way of maintaining law and order in the society!
And to think that, the parents of this girl accepted this disheartening settlement, just made me hate them more.
They failed woefully in parenting their child and denied their child and other teenage girls out there, the right to justice. That paedophile guy, has just been given another chance to victimize other teenage girls out there. #smh
Hiann.... some parents and policemen can fall hands sha... I even heard the culprit is an okada rider and he ran away already....
