No Heart Feelings #5

Previous Episodes The camera found her in bed, nestled under a fuzzy blanket. Her crazy Rihanna hairdo had never looked crazier. Lips that were still puckered because of the million kisses that met her the night before lay slightly parted. There was a silent purr from her with every heave of her chest and the camera stayed on her that way. It adored her for a very long time until the crow of a cockerel outside a window beside the bed brought her into a stir. Her eyelids fluttered, lips closed and parted again. She went back to sleep. But the cockerel announced the morning once more and this time her eyes opened. “Wake up, doll-face.” She blinked and looked at the camera. A sleepy expression still written in her eyes slowly turned to a smile. “Hey you,” the voice behind the camera came on again. “Turn it off,” she…

No Heart Feelings #4

Previous Episodes “Very well,” Toshiba’s throaty voice rolled out in strong notes to Alhaja Nnenna over the phone. “Prepare another funeral for your son’s real baby whom Marie is carrying as we speak! And this time, Marie will go for real! Have a nice evening!” Toshiba put an end to his phone call with a satisfied look on his face but his eyes strayed to Marie and he saw her restless expression as she rubbed her cheeks to do away with tears she had just shed. “What is the problem now?” he asked, passing Udoka her phone. “You should be happy that we’re going to get Kiki. We’ll give them till the end of tomorrow to talk about it and probably plan a DNA test just to confirm what we just told them…” “And then what?” Marie asked irritably. Toshiba wasn’t sure of what to make of the question. “You…

No Heart Feelings #3

Previous Episodes Luiz Benicio sprang up from his bed like a mad man. The loud banging he had just heard in his dream turned out to be actual loud banging on the door of his hotel suite. Someone outside was screaming for him to open the door. He guided himself in the direction of the sitting room in a dazed stagger, knocking a few things to the floor on his way. His head hung on him like a heavy bag of water, unstable and throbbing. His eyes were not his; they felt like the eyes that attacked him whenever he was drunk to stupor. “OPEN THE DOOR!” The banging had now turned to attempts to break into the suite and Luiz made it to the door just in time. He turned the key and a familiar man burst in, elbow first and almost falling, but he steadied himself and jerked…

No Heart Feelings #2

Previous Episodes Alhaja Nnenna Bahaushe was the first wife of Alhaji Babajide Bahaushe, a major gold and jewelry merchant. He began his business as a trader to the north in the early seventies, selling gold in bulk to top wholesalers and retailers. He was so shrewd in business that his customers named him Nyamiri, an offensive term used for Igbos, even though he was Yoruba. Afraid that the name would stick and spoil his business, he began to call himself Alhaji Bahaushe. Bahaushe was simply the term used to refer to the Hausas, especially those from the core north. With time, the name stuck on Babajide, even though he was neither an Alhaji nor a Muslim. But to fit in better with both his suppliers that were mainly from the Middle East and his end buyers, he changed his religion and took a second wife, a true blood Hausa lady…

No Heart Feelings #1

Her smile was blinding… but maybe it was the morning sun in his face. He blinked to adjust his eyesight away from the brightness and back into the beautiful gap-toothed smile that was before him. She who had the blinding smile laughed at his dilemma and stretched up like a kitten to pull the curtains close. She returned to the bed and he had her in his arms. “don’t go,” he pleaded. She giggled and kissed him. It was just one of her tease-kisses. “And Udo will kill me. I didn’t go for her Igbanku. I have to go for this white wedding. And if it wasn’t because of how tied you are at the office, I would have asked you to come along.” “No, the real reason I’m not invited for that wedding is because Udoka hates me.” “Only because you hate her back and hate every other woman…

Go Getter (Go-Get-Her) #17

Silence descended again in Sandy’s spacious sitting room. Outside, the sun had completed its journey to the top, and it hung there stranded in the wide expanse of cobalt blue sky, burning ferociously in frustration. It cast mighty ray balls onto the louvres, which in self defence, refracted the whole of it into the room. It cooked up the meagre air in circulation, and it told on the two men lying exhausted on the ground. Sweat was running down every part of their body in rivulets, washing away blood that would not clot. Their breath came out in reedy gasps like a flute stuffed with tiny stones, and their eyes were tightly shut. It took Bobo painful efforts to open his eyes, and when they finally did open, the beams of sunlight that fell into them caused him to cry out. His eyes hurt like hell. He rolled over…

The Chronicles Of An Adopted Child (Season Finale #4) – Semione Abi

I want to use this medium to say thank you to all of you for reading this series. Your comments, your opinions, criticisms and advices were all and well taken. To me there’s no other family in the social media world better than the MOSKEDAPAGES family, thanks to you Sally for being the pioneer and mother of this wonderful family. Also I want to apologize for the errors made, especially the grammatical blunders. I know I really murdered English in some episodes. Lol. But I promise to learn from my mistakes, and also get a better editor next time my work is coming here (which is very soon). This is my first series online, and you guys are reading it because of Sally. I owe her a lot because without her I’d still be writing and dumping on my computer, hoping to be able to publish it someday. Even though…

The Chronicles Of An Adopted Child (Season Finale #3) – Semione Abi

“We had to go see a friend. We promised to spend that day with him and leave the next day. We left early because we were supposed to go early morning fishing together” Tom answered with his face still down “Just so I’m clear, is her mum also Angeles Richards? Celina who has been quiet the whole time spoke out “One of the nicest people I’ve met in my life. Yes that’s her name” “Babes do you know her? Karen asked “Not really, I’ve been reading a lot about her. She replied. “Is there anything else we need to know? Tom asked Monica “She paid me to keep an eye on him, to make sure he’s ok, she warned me not to let the adopted parent know me. The plan was to stick around till he turned 18 then leave, when I followed them here, I accidentally saw Dr Dickson.…

The Chronicles Of An Adopted Child (Season Finale #2) – Semione Abi

Morning! I’ll put up the last three parts of this series this weekend. Please, keep a date and don’t forget to leave a comment. Thanks! “What’s the bad news?” “Well, bad news is I’m sorry, really sorry but the boy is yours. I wish I could say it’s my fault that I got the result mixed up or something. I wish I could just tell us to put all these behind and move on, but it’s just the truth and what we have to do now is figure a way out to let the cat out of the bag” At that point, his heart almost stopped beating, because he had hoped Dick will say he’s sorry that it was a wrong result he gave him. “So there’s no need for a good news then, because I don’t see anything good that’ll change anything at this point” he managed…
