Resian in the Blossoms of the savannah seems to experience several challenging situations in her life. In the scenarios she seems resolute in her actions as shown in the following ways.
Oloisudori declares his intention of marrying her at an early age. This follows after he changes his initial plan: extorting Kaelo. He demands that she should first be circumcised so as to get rid of her state as nemengalana intoiye.
He intends to use anesthesia to make her unconscious and grab her. Resian resolves not to be married. She tells Oloisudori point blank that she cannot be his wife. She returns the gifts that he had earlier brought and escapes to her father;s shop.
Her father beats her so as to submit to the marriage,but Resian remains steady is her decision. A number of callous youth in Nasila wish to assult resian and Taiyo. In the first days,Resian and Taiyo take a walk around uncle simiren compound.
All of a sudden a young man emerges from the blues and grabs Taiyo. Resian order the callous young man to release Taiyo immediately. The Young man has no option but to give in though he promises to revisit his grave decision.
Though in a dream,enkamuratani and other two women surround Resian to circumcise her holding an olmurunya. Although Resian is in a strange land and is defenseless she does her best to combat the situation.
Determined,Resian twists enkamuratani’s hand with an intention of ensuring that she does not initiate other girls in the future. She knocks the old witch using a mallet as well as fights the third woman until she disappears.
Olarinkoi disappears with Resian to a far hut in the forest. He locks her up and returns very late in the night while drank. Once he returns,he is in his mission of raping her. He unzips and this gesture sets her trembling. She bites Olarinkoi’s thumb so that the pain reduces his action of rape.
Owing to the fact that Resian had earlier witnessed Olarinkoi’s fiery attacks when he dealt with two callous men,it calls for a lot of determination on the part of Resian to tackle him.
In summary,from the above illustrations it is evident that Resian suffers rough challenging times in her life but she deals with all these situations with determination.
