After taking the medication I waited to hear about my daughter if I ask someone no one was telling me anything Bupe was now awake and I made him sit on the bench while we waited for the news .
The doctor walked out of the room..
"How is she " I asked looking at him
"She will be fine though her lady part was teared but we managed to stitch her " she explained
"Thank you "
"Madam how did it happen?" The doctor asked
"We leave in an finished building some men came and raped us "
"When social workers come they will take your child away because they will think you can't protect your child from such danger and where is the father ?"
"Madam its a long story"
"I hope it won't be long when the social workers come " she said walking away
The next morning I went to check on our things and everything was there .
I gave Bupe food and bathed him .
The other left over I kept it for Eveyln .
"I needed to find a better place to stay because this house is dangerous they might come again " I said to myself
I went to the hospital and my baby girl was now awake .
"Mummy my nunu is paining " she cried.
"You will be fine baby eat this " I gave her food .
She ate her food and took her pain killers she slept .
"Bana Evelyn " the old lady who sells clothes at the corner called .
"I noticed you and your kids stay in that unfinished building its not safe there is a house over there the owner wants a care taker the house is almost done only floors are not done " she said
"Serious mayo awe thank you " I said
"Go now while the guy is there at the house " she said
I ran to the house and the man was about to leave .
"Sir excuse me " I said trying to catch my breath .
"Yes how may I help you " he said with a straight face
"I was told you are looking for a care taker for your house "
"I can stay in it " I said
"Am sorry we are looking for a man " he answered
I knelt down.
"Sir lookmy children and I are homeless you see that building over there that's our house two nights ago my daughter and I were raped as we speak now my daughter is in the hospital please am begging you " I said
"Okay let me call my boss to ask him " he said getting his phone .
He walked away after a few minutes he came back
"You are lucky my boss has agreed but in two weeks time he is coming to check everything
"You are lucky my boss has agreed but in two weeks time he is coming to check everything he will start putting the tiles so I don't know how its going to be " he said
"What do you mean ?"
"The boss will come explain" he said
He gave me the keys and showed me around .
I was so greatful atlest we have a house where we can lock the door .
I went back to the hospital where I met the social worker who was waiting for me .
"Hello " she greeted
"Hi" I said rubbing my hands
"I guess you are her mother " the lady asked as she starred at Evelyn
"Don't be scared my names are Cynthia Chalwe am a social worker and I got a report about a little girl who was raped " she said
"Yes mama she got raped let me say we got raped "
"How did it happen ?"
I narrated everything and she asked me to walk with her .
"You know if you didn't have anywhere to go you should have gone to those motherless shelters I know its a lot of work but being a parent is the hardest job especially you who is a single mother mama life is hard but the hardest part is you saw your child being raped since you have assumed me that you have found a better place for you and the kids give me the address so that I can come check up on you " she said
I gave her the address and she left .
I was thankful that she said my case didn't reach the court or my children would have been taken away from me .
Two days later Evelyn was discharged her stitches were finally healed and she was walking better though she was having a had Time sleeping and in due time she became better .
"Mummy I miss school " she said
"You will start"
"Mummy will the bad guys come again and hurt me?" She asked as she was about to cry
"No baby the bad guys are gone "
"Mummy I get scared sometimes as if they will come back"
I took a deep breath to avoid crying .
"They won't come back we have a better house " I said
She hugged me.
If I was alone I would probably have killed myself I was strong because of my kids .
I question myself that "what if I give up who will take care of my kids ?
