Adventures of a Street Girl
I ran into a hard wall, with the way my head
was spinning it was a very hard wall. I looked
up and up and up and, what the…..oh my..oh
my.. Oh my god!( if anyone could see my face
right now, they would see absolute fear and
terror), I ran into a freaking monster, no no
no, not a monster, a beast! He is at least 6
foot 4. tall, huge, bulky arms and legs,I think
this guy is a wrestler or a killer or both.
I don’t know but what I do know is I have to
keep on running especially away from this
guy. I couldn’t see his face cos it was quite
dark ,oh did I mention I fell right on my
behind because of the freaking wall in front of
me? Yes I did.
Anyway, I tried to get up but I felt this
unbearable pain in my ankle..ouch!. I touched
my ankle and it didn’t feel right..sigh..what
do I do now? I have no home, no one to take
care of me, how will survive with this injury,
God why me?. By the way the wall is still
standing in front of me, staring down at me.
But immediately he heard me in pain, he bent
down to the ground and tried to help.
He started to stretch his hand to my leg and I
immediately flinched away from him, he
noticed it and stopped. Looked at my face,
saw the fear and immediately moved away
from me. Then he spoke, and what a voice,
deep, really deep and husky, ” Please don’t be
scared, let me help you’ ‘ said the wall of a
man, I stared at him. he had a really nice
voice, hence the stare. No, Fola stop thinking
about his voice he could be a killer
remember? Run! you need to run!.
I tried getting up again and the pain came
back. shoot! This is bad, this is really bad.
The wall spoke again. ”Please don’t move
you’ll make it worse”.
Well since I couldn’t walk and sitting down
sounded like a great idea, I left my behind
right where it was, on the ground.
“I’m Michael”, he stretched his hand again, this time to give me a hand shake. I looked
at it, then looked at him, well its just a
handshake whats the worse that could
happen? I placed my hand gently into his, it
was warm, strong and firm. I let him go then
shifted back a little. He stayed where he was,
looking at me, straight in the eye no joke he
looked right through me. I don’t know what I
was feeling anymore but I was no longer
(fola street girl)
scared. I felt this wall guy could help me,
protect me or something but I didn’t want to
just give my trust to some random guy cos
again he could be a killer. I kept my mouth
shut and looked back at him.
“I don’t know who you are”, he said. “But I want to help you. Please let me help you”.
“You could be a killer”, I blurted out( oh my
god did I just say that?). he smiled, and it
was a nice smile.
“Yes your right I could be a killer, and it’s
good that your being smart right now.
But you can’t walk cos of the pain in your ankle,
you look hungry, cold, and tired. So please let
me help you”.
(fola street girl)
He stretched out his hand again, but he did it
slowly trying not to scare me than I already
was.ok I had no other option, this is the only
help I can get. I said a quick prayer in my
heart, telling God in heaven to protect me,
placed my hand in his and allowed him to
help me up. He didn’t help me up; he carried
me like I weighed nothing. A tiny squeak
came out of my mouth and I immediately
wrapped my arms around his shoulders to
keep myself from falling. He looked at me and
smiled, I glared at him, he laughed. I decided
to ignore him cos I really needed his help.
We started to leave the place and I kept
thinking…. What in the world have I done?
I don’t know this guy, I don’t know where he is
taking me to. Maybe I should tell him to put
me down and he could go his merry way to
wherever he was going to. I could just limp
my way to a shed and stay for the night, well
that doesn’t sound like a bad idea, only that I
will freeze to death or die of hunger. By the
way while I was thinking about this we were
still walking and he was looking at me.
“I wonder what you’re thinking about now
Fola? Do you want me to put you down? Or
do you have someone that can help you?”. he
(fola street girl)
I thought of lying but the truth came right
“No I don’t have anyone or any place to
He nodded his head saying, “Then we shall
find you a place, some food, clean you up and
take care of your ankle”.
Oh my that will be awesome, I’ll sleep well
tonight, and I’ll be clean too. This is
amazing. Of course I didn’t say this out loud,
that will just make ‘the wall’ have more pity
on and I hate it( pity I mean). So instead I
smiled and said ”thank you”.
But then he said something that made my
heart sink right into my belly.
”You will be staying in my house tonight”.
