BRING BACK MY GIRL

I burnt her hair, the sweet scent of olive oil mixed with blood from Uju’s scalp smelled like incense. I jealously cut it sometimes in her sleep maybe because I was born bald, but last week I plaited it into cornrows, it felt soft and fluffy like Nana’s cotton plantation. She was ecstatic to show it off.
It’s been days since Uju disappeared and I am not sure what bereaved me more, the fact that they littered,bruised her hair bald before taking her or that it was becoming normalcy to see a tribe of girls disappear from my country
