Exclusive! Read Excerpts From Fish Brain Madhouse

So I told you I would bring Fish Brain Madhouse to you this December. Well, my promise still stands. We have few hours left on the clock. Are you ready for it? But while you count the hours, enjoy excerpts from the book. NOTE: All profit from the sales of Fish Brain Madhouse on Okadabooks will go to charity. More details to come up soon. Enjoy! First of all, nobody told me that labor was painful like hell. Which kind life! And I blamed Kyenpia for it. Not for the pain, though. I blamed her for the whole process not going by my terms. Remember I once told you I can’t be held liable for many things, so let’s hold Kyenpia liable, shall we? By association, she made my baby come two weeks earlier. Back in the day when she still had her periods, hers will always come first and…

Fish Brain Clan (13) Amaka

AMAKA  I made sure I shifted my chair far away from James and used my left hand to block my face. I didn’t want to see or hear him. How dare he crash my counseling session with Pastor Ishi? So he is following me everywhere now? I told Pastor Ishi I wanted to meet with him to unburden but the truth was I wanted to report James to him. Was it a bad thing I did to protect Eric from Watzhername by setting the dogs on her? Why did James have to give me hard time over it? Good thing I refused to speak to him for days. “Maxy, it’s not that bad nau. Sit close to your man,” said Pastor Ishi and I shook my head. He laughed. “So what’s the problem? Why are you angry like this, my dear?” “I’m not the one you should be asking. Ask him why he’s here.”…

Fish Brain Clan (4) Amaka

AMAKA Girls have the habit of burning their ex-boyfriends’ stuff when they know the relationship is really over and there’s no hope of a reunion. As for me, I didn’t go through that stage of hatred for all things James. I kept little pieces of him with me—his Arsenal mug, a few of his t-shirts, his boxers and his perfume. The perfume was the most important. It always made me feel better whenever I was down but for some stupid reason I had left it at Loretta’s place and being holed up in Fiyin’s bathroom with no comfort through Saturday night, it was hell. But the last thing I expected was to hear James’ voice the next evening and to hear it calling my name. “Amaka?” he knocked on the bathroom door. “Are you okay?” I didn’t trust my voice to sound normal, so I kept quiet. “Can you please,…

AMAKA It was something right out of a movie scene. I think I even watched it in an episode of Friends, where Ross at the altar, about to say his vows to his fiancée, Emily, called out Rachel’s name instead. It went something like this: “I, Ross, take you Rachel…” And I can tell you that the wedding ended right there and then. Seriously, what girl in her right mind would go on to marry a guy who was thinking about someone else other than her at the altar?! Well, I wouldn’t but since I was the other girl whose name was mentioned, I would go right ahead and say ‘I do!’ Hehehehehe. Like I said, right out of a movie! James called my name in front of Watzhername, her family, his family, all their relatives, their friends, church members and a few wedding crashers—over two thousand people in all. When…
