It’s Another Saturday…#20

The Uninvited I am exhausted. Three births and one more to go. I can hardly move a muscle. I know I prayed to God before I resumed work in this hospital, that I wanted favor and success but I had no idea he had taken my prayer seriously. I have become so popular that expectant mothers are ditching their gynecologists from different hospitals and seeking my services. I miss my former workplace when I had enough time on my hands. Nowadays, I just go home and crash into my bed and drift off while listening to Honey tell me about how her day went. We have not had quality time together in the past week. While I have been consumed with work, she has been preoccupied with moving to her own apartment. I am not totally excited about the development but I understand that a woman needs her space. If…

Read previous episodes of It’s Another Saturday Peace Or Pieces? Honey has been in hushed conversation with her elder sister for almost an hour. I had respectfully asked to be excused. I withdrew to my room to give them privacy but I have been restless. I still don’t trust Jane. Her excuse for showing up in town by this time is that she left Warri really late and did it without the knowledge of her siblings. How am I supposed to believe that? I stretch out on my bed, my phone in hand. There’s nothing trending online and so I put my phone down and recall Honey’s question about Tarela. How did she find out about her? Did Mary let something slip? My phone vibrates. I pick it. Tola’s calling. I hesitate to answer as my mind tries to figure out what the call is about. Has it got to…

He Said, She Said “Reno would never do such a thing! Never! Mary is lying and God will punish her!” I don’t care for Peace’s high-pitched voice screaming at me or her words conveyed in anger. I don’t care that my friends are split over the issue and the guys are giving me this look like I have just committed murder. I have done nothing but give Reno what he deserves. The doctor says he’s fine. I was not stupid enough to kill him; I only wanted him to feel pain. “I will never forgive you, Jideofor! You or Mary! Never!” I continue to act like Peace is an insect buzzing in some desert where no one exists. We are all settled in the waiting room of the hospital. My friends are here for Reno; I’m here for Mary. I am told she is still with Tola. “Ah! Mary, you’re…

Read Previous Episodes Of It’s Another Saturday Ravished! I find her waiting outside. She has two boxes with her and a broken expression. I park the car, get down and help her with her things. When we enter the car, I take a good look at her face and see that the demon of a brother has left her cheeks marked. My anger grows wings. I try to find my voice but I can’t. “They took all of my mom’s stuff and set them on fire,” she says, her eyes lost somewhere. “Every single thing my dad had kept over the years.” That explains the smoke I’d seen rising from the building as I was approaching. “They said she slept with someone else to have me. He was never my father.” “And you believe them?” Honey says nothing. I want to scold her really bad for letting those animals get to…

Daddy’s Little Girl “I didn’t raise you like that, Use.” “But daddy…” “Keep quiet.” I am having a father-daughter moment with my dad. Probably our last. The old man is dying and it is a heart wrenching thing to experience, so I’d rather believe that it’s not happening. To me, he’s seventy again and I’m his young twenty-year old daughter who has come to ask his advice over some boy issue. The boy in question is Jide. I have reported my misdeeds and daddy is giving me his counsel. He is very disappointed in me. “I think we overindulged you. We gave you everything you asked for. And that is why when you can’t get the things you want the way you want them, you lose control.” “But daddy, you know I’m not like that. It’s just that I’ve been hurt so many times. I can’t trust again. I just can’t.”…

LeChase Hotel Your hands on my hips pull me right back to you I catch that thrust, give it right back to you You’re in so deep, I’m breathing for you You grab my braids, arch my back high for you You’re diesel engine, I’m squirting mad oil Down on the floor ’til my speaker starts to boil I flip shit, quick slip, hip dip and I’m twisted In your hands and your lips and your tongue tricks And you’re so thick and you’re so thick and you’re so… Crown royal on ice, crown royal on ice Crown royal on ice, crown royal on ice “Ooooh… Jill Scott.” “Jill Scot? Are you for real? How about ‘ooooh…Jide’?” I laugh, even though I so badly want to cry. I so badly want to scream out his name and wake the entire neighborhood. It’s 5am and Jide and I have been at…

It’s Not Another Saturday…

Hi everyone, I’m so sorry, there’s no new episode today. This week was one of those really busy weeks. So busy in fact, I can’t account for how I fell asleep on most nights. I have the episode already written but I haven’t edited it. So, hopefully it will come sometime this week and maybe a bonus. I was also to introduce a new writer but even that one was another uphill task. Please pardon me. This week I’ll do better. Boys With Toys comes out in October. Fish Brain Madhouse follows in December. For those of you asking for access to moskeda.wordpress.com, I repeat, that page does not exist anymore. If you want to read something interesting this evening, I recommend Playing The Game by Olajumoke Omisore and Abby’s Diary by Fiksionist. And if you like erotica, then read Honorable Secretary by @maskuraid. Finally, a lot of people complained about The Immortals’ Code,…

Afternoon! Next week I’ll bring you a new series from someone new. It’s all about family scandals. If you think you have drama in your family, you haven’t seen nothing yet. So, sit tight. You’ll have a mad ride with this one. Enjoy episode 14 of It’s Another Saturday… The One Who Keeps Appearing Jide did not just walk me out of his house. He did not just do that. What in the world! I breathe in deep. Calm down, Mary. He didn’t mean it. He would never knowingly treat you like that. It’s the jazz, so calm down… Heck, I can’t! I am so mad I feel like walking back to his house and giving him a piece of my mind. How can he talk to me like that? Is he insane? Anyways, I don’t blame him sha. He’s seen my nakedness, that’s why. But all the same, I’ll keep my…

A colleague asked me the other day if I get upset when readers tell me my episodes are short. I told her that I don’t. I feel flattered, rather. So, here’s a huge thank you for flattering me, guys.*kisses!* But if I hear pim! about this episode ehn, I’ll be waiting with cane on the other side. Enjoy episode 13 of It’s Another Saturday. If you want to catch up, read HERE But Jide, Why? “This is a very stupid move, Hon.” Saratu is mad at me for quitting my job. This has been her state of mind since I broke the news to her two days ago. Earlier, she took me shopping and now we’re at a spa where she’s spoiling me silly, just to manipulate my mind into staying back. “He is so going to dump your sorry ass.” “No, he’s not.” I smile at her when what I really…
