I closed my eyes and wanted to cry. Not only that I will never see my mother and Papa, I will never see Wami too because he had been taken as a slave by the warriors. I imagined him fighting fruitlessly with the warriors, trying to escape or trying to stop them from carrying me away.
"Does it mean I am now a slave?" I asked even though I knew what the reply would be.
"Yes," she replied, "you are."
Before her eyes, Oroma's world crumbled. Her village was invaded and she was taken away as a slave to an unknown land with no hope of ever seeing her family. Caught in a world torn by war, betrayals, slavery and uncertain love, the future looked bleak for her but this was not to be her end ... but the beginning of her destiny.
