The Marriage Ultimatum #12

♥ Kaine stretched again on the bed and tried to force her mind to shut down so her eyes and the rest of her body could get the nap she’d come up for. But it was so pumped with life—well, thoughts—that it refused to relax and slither into rest-mode. It didn’t surprise her, the mild restlessness. It had been that way since that woman… well, to simply refer to her as ‘that woman’ seemed quite improper—not as a term but as a form of description, since she’d been anything but ‘that’. When she’d turned and seen her, her first thought had been that a supermodel had come visiting the Kojo-Edwards. She had been so beautiful with a milky brown complexion that gave her the look of one with mixed parentage—much like Dominic. Her hair had been rich, reddish-brown that had been arranged in a knot-style on top of her…

Dear High Mistress #1

This series, Dear High Mistress is continued from The Fourth Finger. To enjoy the story better, I’ll recommend the Fourth Finger E-book to you. Click here to get it. In the world where the following took place, it was a typical Friday evening and nothing unusual was slated to happen. The metropolitan was alive in its usual buzz and being that it was the beginning of a weekend, the clubs and watering holes were expected to come alive, to accommodate the ever pulsing nightlife of the famous Lagos. Drinks flowed, dance floors kissed the happy feet of vivacious social animals, acquaintances were made, deviant deeds blamed on alcohol went down and the police had their hands (and pockets) full, handling a myriad of cases for the night. While all this went down, our focus was shifted to three couples in the story that were within the confines of their respective…

The Marriage Ultimatum #10

♥ “Nick, what is this you tell me?” Camilla was staring at Dominic with perplexed eyes. She had lifted off the edge of his desk though and was gawking down at him since he remained seated. “You are married?” The words tumbled out of her trembling lips. “You cannot be married! No, you cannot be married It is impossible!” It was a rejection of a fact that bewildered, a denial of a truth that frightened. Dominic saw the confusion in her hazel-coloured eyes, the fear that trembled in them and then, the fury that was building up. He expelled a breath, pushed back his chair and stood up. “Camie, let us sit and talk.” He reached for her hand but she wrenched free of his hold. “What is that ring you’ve got on your finger, Dominic?” She demanded, her voice rising a notch even as the fury gained place…

Love, Your Enemy #16

Read previous episodes of Love, Your Enemy The old things have passed away… -2nd Corinthians 5 “You have no idea who this person is?” Papa twirled a gold-plated Mont Blanc pen around his fingers, an expression of annoyance resting on his face. “No,” Love responded to his question concerning the video she had just shown him and Leye. They were in Papa’s home office. Najib was also present. Love was having a lunch of cheese and macaroni, cooked by Asher. “This is good,” she commented. “Yummy.” The duo of her husband and father-in-law looked at her. They both found it weird that she was not perturbed by the video or the fact that someone was after her. But then, she was Loveth. A different breed of female. “You’re not bothered by this?” Leye asked. “Bothered?” Love responded after a delay of three seconds, when it occurred to her that…

Love, Your Enemy #15

Forget the former things: do not dwell on the past… Isaiah 43 “This? This? Or this?” Love gave the three outfits Mina thrust in her face a lethargic stare before lowering her eyes to the documents spread before her. “Mommy, choose one nau.” “Get me something else, Mimi. Something black. And also get me coffee.” Mina shook her head. “No coffee for you, mama.” Love looked up at Mina in frustration. She felt a sudden need to cry. “Okay, tea with some lime, please.” “Nope. You can have lemon.” “I don’t want lemon. I want lime.” “I’m sorry, mommy but daddy says you have to stick to your diet.” “What diet?! I don’t like you and this your daddy!” “You don’t really mean that.” “Go and get me something to wear before I vomit on you!” Mina curtsied and hurried off into the walk-in closet. Love dashed away from the…

The Marriage Ultimatum #9

♥ Kaine let out a groan as she rolled to her side and tried to blink open heavy-lidded eyes. Her head throbbed, not much but there was a mild bang on her temples. She pushed back the thick-layered cloth that seemed to envelope her to the soft bed and struggled to a sitting position. Again, she struggled to flutter her eyes wider open, winced at the gritty pinch she felt. She managed to get them open though and lifted her head to stare about the room. The sapphire-blue drapes that covered the glass windows were still drawn, so the room was only faintly brightened from the light of the Chandelier behind the pale silver-sheen wood shelf.  She tried to get a hand on her elusive memory. How had she gotten into bed? She only seemed to recall the dinner with assorted dishes and wine… Oh God, he had carried…

The Marriage Ultimatum #8

♥ They stayed in Lagos three more days before they started back home. They could have left a day earlier than they did but Dominic was loath to get back home and to get back to the trouble he knew awaited him from Camilla. He’d have stayed back longer if he didn’t have work to get back to. Or if he wasn’t already missing his mother. He’d purposely been ignoring her calls and messages. For one thing, he wasn’t in the mood to deal with the matter over the phone but mostly he didn’t want to deal with it with Kaine so close by. He couldn’t understand why—maybe it was his upbringing—but he was reluctant to disrespect her in such a way. Or in any other way. Their marriage might have been contracted under rather irregular circumstances but she was still his wife and he owed her some measure…

The Marriage Ultimatum #7

Read Previous Episodes Of The Marriage Ultimatum Kaine was on the phone with Juliet. She’d called just to find out how they were and to let her know that she and Baby Tobi were doing fine as well, but somehow the matter of Dominic’s unexpected and disturbingly increasing interest in her ha come up. She wasn’t entirely surprised that it did, not when the matter preyed on her mind all day and was making her act belligerent in desperate self-defence. “That was expected, you must know that, Kaine.” Juliet was saying. “He is a man after all and the most natural instinct in men is to pursue, hunt down and possess. Sex is second nature to them. Besides, you’re a beautiful young woman and also, his wife now—so, showing his interest in you is not unusual.” “But not this soon!” Kaine protested. “I mean, we only got married yesterday and…

Love, Your Enemy #14

And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. -John 8 If a feather dropped, someone passing outside would hear it. The silence that rested upon the Omotosho family in Leye’s living room was as compelling as the mix of emotions that lined their hearts. Papa had just cleaned out one half of his closet before his children and their spouses. The truth was finally being let out. It was ugly and excruciating to hear. Love had passed around tissues to her sisters-in-law. She was now passing around fresh ones. “I was not the father you all knew. I lived a shameful life. I don’t deserve your love, or forgiveness,” he said, coming to the end of his confession. Shade covered her face in a sob. Big Mommy, also known as Jumoke, who was seated beside her, lent her shoulder for comfort. “I have struggled with…
