Desperately In Need

I remember in January i really had a lot of stress.My college teacher wanted me to get charts pens and some requirement needed for my lesson planning and the T.P exercise. My parents had no money to give me to buy all this things which costed almost five thousands shillings including my transport and lunch i thought of what to do but no solution came. Miriam gave an idea, he had a friend who would give me that kind of money as long as we looked.I tried to resist the idea but in the long run i gave in and so the guy promised to give me the money if only slept with her. I desperately needed the money and so i gave in and after that got the money and bought everything i wanted.
