Abstract

This short story engages with the urgency around violence against women. It tells the story of Enita, a 14-year-old girl who finds herself in a web of sexual and physical abuses in places where she should gain protection. She is raped by her Parish priest, Fr Xavier, who her mother had willingly allowed her to go help with settling into his new rectory. Her boyfriend's brother, Siomanu, caught Fr Xavier raping her. Siomanu would rape her too in exchange for keeping Fr Xavier's rape as a secret.
