No Heart Feelings #12

This post is for @oge_writes who gave me a correct analysis of the characters in this story. It was like she was in my head 🙂 PREVIOUS EPISODES Terdoo was up very early. Long before the sun came up. After turning and tossing in her bed for most of the night, she gave up and headed to the kitchen to make a mug of hot chocolate. When she was done, she sat in the sitting room, turned on the television and sucked on the beverage with a straw, blowing bubbles into the mug until it became cold. Then she set it aside and lay down on the couch. Some form of quietude rested on her as her eyes began to close in slumber. Jimi had made things easier the night before with his fit of temper. She had expected more from him, expected him to sit and talk about their…

PREVIOUS EPISODES “Can I have a word, Teddy?” Terdoo released a relieving sigh. The silence that had hung over her, accompanied by Liam’s severe stare had been too much to bear. To worsen things, Jimi was still lying on her bed, his head buried in a pillow. She was left alone to face the awkwardness. She followed Liam out, securing her wrapper firmly over her chest. “I’ll be leaving for Abuja in an hour or so,” Liam said. She shut the door and leaned her back on it. “Okay.” “I’d really love it if you came along and saw the work I’ve done with the firm. It’s all completed and we have staff and even clients. We just need a boss.” “Liam, I don’t know anything about running any business.” “But I do. And we can work together. I’ll teach you.” “I dunno… I just can’t leave everything behind and…

Sorry, this is coming a bit late. I tried to be productive this weekend. Tried… Thank God I got my mojo back. PREVIOUS EPISODES Terdoo opened her eyes and stared up at the ceiling. It was his cologne that hit her first.  She closed her eyes. It hadn’t been a dream. Everything that happened the night before actually happened. There was nothing she could do to change it. All she wanted now was to get away from him as far as possible. She moved a little, making sure she was careful not to wake him but his hand drew her closer, fitting perfectly on the curve of her waist. Her heart stopped beating, her breath held. She didn’t want him to wake up and subject her to an awkward moment she feared she would never recover from. Not that she could even recover from allowing him into her bed the…

Happy Birthday to @creamynuela16 PREVIOUS EPISODES Terdoo rubbed inflamed eyes. They burned in their sockets, reminding her of her need to rest. Kiki was getting agitated in her arms; it was way past her dinner time. The tiny whimpers she let out added to Terdoo’s exhaustion. Every other sound around her gave her the same feeling, causing some form of weakness in her. But nothing weakened her like stepping out of the airport and finding William waiting for her beside a SUV. Sesan and Jeffery were with him as well. Turned out her brief bathroom break hadn’t been so brief. Somehow Liam had found a way to conjure up a SUV and charmed Sesan again just as he had aboard the flight from Lagos. Terdoo put on her ugliest frown to ward him off but she couldn’t beat her exhaustion. It showed in her eyes and weighed down her shoulders;…

PREVIOUS EPISODES Terdoo was tired. Her cotton t-shirt clung to her sweaty body like a second skin. She had been determined to clean the entire house until every corner sparkled, not because it was necessary but because she was restless. The need to keep herself busy gnawed at her so bad that she swept and mopped and dusted and wiped with an unhealthy obsession. Now done, the restlessness still remained. At first she blamed her unease on the disarming presence of Jimi. It had been easier for her to like him in the silence of her heart and from a distance for the past few years but now that he was constantly around her, she was finding it hard to fight the strong chemistry that was brewing between them. She had long settled on not letting herself fall for any man, especially not when her past was still hot on…

Read previous episodes HERE  Jimi paced up and down the dark hallway of his house muttering to himself in anger. He had never been so incensed in his life before. The rage boiling in him was a new feeling, strange yet exciting. He knew it was not good for him but he couldn’t stop. The more he thought about Marie and all she had done and the fact that she had the guts to show up at his home, the more he burned. He needed an outlet and she alone could give it to him. He stopped his pacing and hurried down the stairs, hoping she hadn’t gone. Fortunately he saw her almost out the door, wrapped in a blue pashmina veil and holding a bag. “Come back here!” He shouted above the sound of the rain which had just resumed seconds before. Marie stopped moving and stood still before…

This post is dedicated to Goodnews and Amelia and Godiya and Chux and Toyinfab… HML! God bless your unions! Read Previous Episodes HERE Nandir had an oval face with high cheekbones and a narrow chin. Her doll-like eyes were always accentuated by long eyelashes and thinly plucked eyebrows. A long nose rested above constantly pursed lips and she possessed dark, glowing skin that was almost without blemish. She wasn’t particularly beautiful facially but her appearance drawn out by eye-catching clothes and a relentlessly spilling cleavage always turned heads wherever she went. Nandir adored the attention. In fact, she thrived on it. She could never be seen out of her house without makeup and some revealing outfit, even under the chilly conditions of Jos weather. There was no such thing as casual appearance with her. But for sad reasons, she had stumbled out of her one-room apartment in nothing but a…

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…
