Run For Safety

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of RUN FOR SAFETY My teacher had already told me that I was going home. But my question was why? They never told me the reason so it looked like I had to think by myself. To be honest I was very much worried and couldn't even do anything right. I was too confused and didn't even understand anything. I knew that something bad had happen but I didn't want to be pesimistic by any chance. So I had to travel from school to home. The distance was so far.BONDO to NAIROBI. I left school at one pm and arrived in Nairobi at twelve midnight. During my journey During my journey, my sitt-mate was not bad. I mean a gentleman. He offered me tea but I refused, but later gave me money to compasate for the tea. How was I to refuse it was just money. But I thank God he had no bad intentions. Our driver had bought for me food (chips) and I couldn't refuse since I wasn't spending any of my money. But ti him he had second thought. He wanted me to go with him from the main town. Was I so stupid to even do such a thing. Something bad was really happening and I just had to go. When we had stopped there he came out . Now this was my chance. Read more.
