The Darker Berry #10

Read episodes 1- 9 of The Darker Berry here Breakfast was fries and scrambled eggs, prepared by Amra. She had also woken up before dawn and cleaned the entire house. When Umi came downstairs, she was served a steaming cup of tea. “I don’t do tea, Amra.” “It won’t hurt to say thank you, though.” Umi looked at her sister. She felt no beef towards her. They were sisters that loved each other despite the present situation of things. However, Umi had chosen to keep her heart at bay. It was to ready her for when Amra would break it again. “Good morning, Aunty Umi.” Umi turned her face into a smile when she saw Zainab beaming up at her. “Morning, sweetie.” She walked over to her and pulled her in for a hug. “I kept this chair for you.” The child tapped on the chair next to hers. Umi…

The Darker Berry #9

He lingered at the entrance of the house for a few seconds, the sight before him uncomfortable to watch. Still he remained at the door, watching them hold each other. Chibuzor dragged her closer to himself even when she made to end the embrace, his hands stroking her back gently like a mother trying to lull her tot to sleep. Leaning against the wall, Femi continued to watch, a wry smile playing on his lips – how was it that Umi had never seen what this man felt for her? He seemed to drop hints at every given opportunity and even now that he stroked her back, he did it so seriously like one at the embrace Olympics. Femi wondered if the man was comfortable in the friend zone. Or maybe he just liked to watch from the shadows while the woman he liked saw other people. It would be…

Girls #8

Previously on Girls Lola would have ran out of the kitchen if she could. If her head didn’t feel like it had been split in half and if she could see through her eyes.     But instead, she half-crouched, half-walked out of the kitchen. Ignoring her husband’s pleas to wait.    In the bedroom, she finally let go, chest and shoulders heaving until she started to fear for her baby.     Clutching a pillow, she wept some more. If she had not angered Kenny and her auntie, she would have parked some of her things in bags and gone to her auntie’s. She couldn’t go to her parents’ house. They liked her husband. Her mother, especially. She was fond of calling him her favourite son. Thanking him for his patience with their daughter. John was a sweet, kind man when he first approached her. He waited for a long while,…

Girls #6

Read all episodes of Girls Tony could tell from her voice. From the pauses and delayed replies. Her stubborn heart was wavering. “I didn’t kiss your cousin. Come over, babe. We can talk things through.” “I can’t. You know I can’t, Anthony. I’m sorry.”            There it was, the sign he needed. She didn’t believe he was completely guilty. If she did, she wouldn’t be on the phone to him and she wouldn’t call him Anthony. She had always insisted she didn’t like endearments but she liked to call him Anthony. Not Tony like others did. Just because she liked him more than everyone else did, she told him one day. “If you are telling the truth …that Jack likes you, how come you didn’t tell me?” “I didn’t wanna cause any problems between you two.” “Or you wanted to eat your cake and have it.” “Kehinde…” “I knew not…

Girls #5

I’m very sorry about the lateness of this episode. Thanks for all the comments. Have a great day. Thanks.   *** Lola hurried out of the room, shirt unbuttoned. “Did I hear you say Tony tried to kiss you?” “I… don’t think I should have gone to his house.” Jackie sobbed. “Don’t you dare blame yourself. Men are goats. I know them, believe me. Even the ones we think we can trust are future rapists!” “It wasn’t like that. He was trying to help me.” “That’s what they all say, sis.” Kenny had reached the bottom of the stairs before she realised what she was doing. She wanted to leave the house. She wanted to see Tony and hear him laugh with her. He would explain. Her cousin had misunderstood his intentions. “Don’t walk away cousin. Jackie needs us.” Her cousins followed her. Kenny aimed for the last step on…

Hunter’s Game – Season Finale

Read the entire season of Hunter’s Game “How could you let this happen?!” Major-General Yakubu thundered. An hour after Ijeoma’s phone call, Kazeem’s boss was standing before him in his office. “I’m sorry sir. I tried to reach you when I had my suspicions but I didn’t expect her to act this fast or this drastically.” Kazeem’s boss mumbled. “What suspicions? That she knew I ordered Maiva’s death? Or that she would launch her personal vendetta against me? What suspicions exactly? And what resources is she using? Someone on your team went rogue and you did not know?!” “We have been on her case for months.” “Don’t make me lose my temper. For months, yet she outsmarted all of you! With all the money pumped into your organisation, you could not handle this?” “I apologize for the slip up sir. My team is on ground and they are working to…

Hunter’s Game #10 By @Oge_writes

Read previous episodes of Hunter’s Game here “No, Yemi, I need you back here immediately. You can’t trust her. She’s dangerous.” Leela could sense the urgency in her boss’ tone but it didn’t make a difference to her. Her mind was made up. “I’m sorry. I can’t. I can’t abandon Uzo. And I can’t let these people get away with what they did to Gbemiga.” Her boss sighed and his tone softened “I know you miss him. We do too. He was important to all of us. But Yemi, you can’t let your emotions dictate to you right now.” Leela shook her head. “This isn’t about my emotions boss. I’ve got an assignment, I see it through to the end.” She heard him breathe over the line for a few seconds. She would hang up but she did not want to be rude. “Boss, I need to go now. We’ve…

Boys With Toys #17

Hi, #IANS fans! It’s Another Saturday is not coming this weekend as I had anticipated :(. I am sorry. I’m still writing in bits. This happens a few times. Normally, I put down episode by episode, following an outline but sometimes, the story flows in bits and later I’ll have to piece it together. So, with #IANS, I have a lot of short or full length pieces that are yet to come together. This happened with The Fourth Finger and that was why I did a marathon when I eventually completed the episodes. Now, I’m not promising you another marathon but it’s definitely going to be more than one episode. At least, two. There’s material for more but let me not promise what I can’t fulfil. Meanwhile, enjoy today’s episode of Boys With Toys. . . . . . . . . It was Khalid’s last day in Abuja, and…

It’s Another Novocaine Saturday #4

Read episodes 1-3 of It’s Another Novocaine Saturday I walk blindly into the living room, my eyes smarting from the effects of being dragged out of sleep rudely. I’m totally done with all the visitors coming to see Jiney. I don’t think I can entertain one more person abeg. I unlock the door and pull it open. Smiling into my face, together with a bright morning, is the last person I want to see. But she smiles on, unmindful of how I feel about her. And then she does something stupid as her legs leave their present position and she comes for me. I feel her hug me, pressing her huge breasts into me and squeezing me like I asked for it. I don’t hug her back. She pulls away – smiling, still. “Good morning, Uncle Jide. I’m finally here. Yayy! I’m so sorry I’m coming in this morning. I…
