Novocaine Knights #24

Previous Episodes GENESIS These days it rained all the time. Especially in the mornings. It always began the same—dark clouds, distant thunders, brief bursts of directionless winds—with a harmless drizzle. And then the downpour would follow, bringing everything to a standstill, from traffic to happy tempers. Genesis had not been fraught by any of this; for three days she floated in love clouds created by her beau. They had been lost in some resort a little away from the flurry of the metropolitan. Dominic’s initial plan was to take her out of the country but she had seen the world already and wasn’t quite excited about traveling. In addition, Dominic had revealed a few things prior to the getaway that put her out of the mood for a trip. It began with a careless announcement of his desire to fully go into politics. “You don’t have enough problems already, Nick?”…

WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE    WURA “You’re what?” The shrill tone that came with the question almost made Wura jump. It was her sister speaking; she wanted Wura to repeat the breaking news she had just heard. “I’m pregnant.” Her sister clapped her hands together slowly whilst shaking her head in shock. Her brother who was also there was quiet but his arms were crossed together; legs pulsating really fast as he stared at Wura with fiery eyes. His wife, seated beside him, was the only who spoke. “How could you do such a thing, my dear? I thought you were a strong Christian. How did this happen?” Those were questions even Wura herself couldn’t answer. “No wonder you kept giving us excuses why you won’t visit.” Her sister had recovered from the shock but it was still displayed on her face. “At some point sef you were avoiding…

Previous Episodes WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE DOMINIC There was a plan. A carefully mapped out plan by him. And if Genesis followed it to the letter, it was going to get them the desired results. But it seemed she wasn’t ready. Both of them weren’t. They hadn’t foreseen the curveball thrown by Mother. How were they to know that the woman would want her to sleep with another man while her time with Dominic was still running? According to what Dominic had been told by Genesis, Mother protected the reputation of every girl that was under her care. One of her rules stated that once any of her girls was handling a man, she was solely his. If she was caught with another man, there were going to be dire consequences. She always reiterated to them that she would never cheapen them into lowlife prostitutes that stood out on the…

Novocaine Knights #20  Previous Episodes DOMINIC He opened his eyes to a sunny morning. Daylight from one of the windows cast a ray of brilliance on the floor, just at the foot of the bed. It looked like it was going to be a normal day but an uneasy feeling settled on him. He brushed it away and mentally went through his wardrobe for the appropriate outfit to wear for the busy day ahead. Asleep in his arms was Genesis, her hand resting comfortably in his boxer shorts. He had a few minutes of lazing about before getting set for the day and he didn’t want to wake her. He was content to spend the little time gazing into her face and wondering how she had gotten him to commit to their relationship with little effort the night before. She hadn’t said much after returning from her apartment where she…

Novocaine Knights #19

I read all your comments on the last episode but I did not reply because I didn’t want to give away some things. Thank you all for commenting. You guys always make me 🙂 I refused to look at the word count for this post so it must be long, I think, but with good reason. Have a good read… Dedicated to Ifeanyi Onochie and Essence CJ. You guys know why.   BULLET The envelope came in exactly a week to Easter Sunday. As usual it was dropped at his doorstep – there was no knock or any attempt by the messenger to ring the bell. The person simply turned away and got into the rickety red Golf Volkswagen he came with. Bullet watched him from the comfort of his bedroom, on his laptop, as the vehicle drove away and disappeared from the surveillance camera’s vista. Bullet hopped off his…

Novocaine Knights #18

WARNING: S/L (18+) GENESIS She woke up gasping for air. A wheezing sound escaped her mouth as she groped around blindly, unable to breathe properly. The cold hands of her nightmare wound themselves around her throat and squeezed hard with each hastening second. She screamed but no sound came out, she called out to Dominic but her voice remained stuck in her throat. Death stared her square in the face. It was black and formless and was gaining access into her soul. She fought but she was not a worthy adversary. Life rejected her and made its exit after replaying every moment she lived in quick flashes, starting from her childhood up to the present. She saw Dominic standing before her; he was so close she could practically touch him. He was calling out to her but the more he called, the farther he seemed even though he…

Novocaine Knights #17

Good morning! I’d like to thanks you guys for sticking with me all the way. Sorry for missing Fish Brain Vows last week. It was intentional, though. I will resume on thursday while Novocaine Knights still takes the Saturday slot. Happy Easter! WURA/ MAHMUD/ KASI/ LEXUS/ CHICHI/ CHRIS/ EHI “It’s just a simple blood test, Woo, relax nau.” Wura gave Mahmud a heavy frown and turned her face away from him. They were alone in the kitchen of her house. Everyone else was either asleep or yet to return from a party they went for the previous night. Wura had woken up early to prepare for church and found Mahmud waiting in the sitting room, engaged in a long phone conversation with one of his cousins. In his uninhibited way of doing things, he had stretched out his legs on a sofa and made himself comfortable. He was on…

Novocaine Knights #16

So I was able to work out a flexible schedule with my boss and I got some time for myself and that is why you have this episode today. Making up for lost time, it’s a few words longer but hopefully, it’s worth the wait. DOMINIC It was raining outside and he was worried that he hadn’t closed his bedroom windows. He knew Iya Idaya would not remember to help him do so. He should call her and tell her to. He should also call Genesis and apologize for not being there for breakfast but both his phones had been switched off. Everything had to wait for now. He was about to go into something serious. “You see how she’s wasting our time?!” Dominic looked at Bashorun who was touring the length and breadth of Eva’s sitting room in agitation. “We’ve been waiting for almost an hour!” “It’s actually…
