Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Evil Realisation

i never knew that evil exists as i was still young and trusted everyone. it was my early age of school beggining and i had no one to spend time with except her, our house. i fully trusted her as she took me to school and from school, she protected me against any bad person or thing. she gave me food and washed me.she ensured that i was clean everytime. one day i got home with her and she looked tired and sleepy. i felt for her because of the love that she had for me. i asked her why she looked tired and she said she was sleepy and tired not giving a reason. she got to bed and i followed her. she carried me on her breast and embraced me. i felt her, her heartbeat, the circulation in her body. it was a crazy experience on her. her embrace and touching was that of mother to son. then soon she removed her clothes and removed my clothes. when her skin got in contact with mine i felt good, an experience that i cannot explain in words, a first experience. fortunately nothing terrible happened. i wanted to have her by myself for the experience not knowing that ii was a bad experience until i came to saw on TV and my mother told me that it was bad. that is when i knew that body contact with an opposite sex was not good and could lead to evil deeds.
