I once had a home; a life; a dream that I, Fateema, will become a nurse in Chibok.
My best friend, Hadiza, would be a lawyer. Kai, that girl could argue for Africa.
Her brother, Yusufu, the light of my life would leave for Harvard to study medicine. Harvard!
I would miss our stolen kisses and he my fura de nunu.
But our dreams died with a devastating bang.
Now, Yusufu is a rotting headless corpse; Hadiza is swollen with her first bastard; And I am parting sore thighs for the men who took my home, my life, my dreams.
