Boys With Toys #18

Good evening my brothers and sisters in the Lord. It is with a chill heart I bring you this episode. Please enjoy. I had terrible network during the weekend, even before the long ass rain. IANS is on it’s way. But not today or tomorrow or next tomorrow. 😀 I’m posting this tonight because the only free time I may have this week is to feature other bloggers. Anyways, I’ll be on Inspiration FM and Classic FM this weekend on Friday and Saturday respectively. I won’t be talking about cheating wives, though. It’s all about The Fourth Finger, sponsored by Etisalat and powered by Okadabooks. Please, keep a date. Have a lovely night! *kisses! . . . . . . . Eyes followed him from the entrance door, all the way to the elevator and right up to his floor. They didn’t leave him when he stopped briefly to speak to one…

“Hi,” Beatrice greeted. “Hi,” Bankole replied. Uncomfortable silence supervened as they gawked at each other. “I’m here to take Hope out for ice-cream and snacks. Is she in?” Bankole presented a confused face. “Ice-cream?” “Yes. We spoke over the phone. I promised to take her out. I hope it’s okay with you?” “One minute.” Bankole shut the door and went to Hope who had suddenly become engrossed with watching television. “Hope?” “Yes Uncle Banky.” She turned. “Can you explain to me why Aunty Beatrice is here?” “She’s here?” Hope lit up. The act was poorly performed. “Hope?” Bankole demanded an answer. “I just wanted to see her.” “That puppy face will not fly with me, baby girl. What you did was wrong. You could have told me Aunty Beatrice was coming.” “I’m sorry. It’s just that…I miss her.” Bankole knew he couldn’t win against the child’s emotions. He left a warning finger…

Following the release of The Fourth Finger, I have not been able to pen down much on It’s Another Novocaine Saturday. All I had was disjointed bits and not enough time to put them together. I will be back next saturday with episode 6 but until then, please read Episode 15 of Boys With Toys. This is one story I had planned to publish as an ebook but I felt something was missing in it and hence, I abandoned it. I still want to publish it but only when I am satisfied. Maybe I will not publish it at all. Well, let’s see. If you have forgotten the story, here’s a recap: Khalid’s wife, Onsachi, murdered his mistress, Uju; weeks later, Sachi shot herself in her family home where she was once abused by her dad. Guru had been given a girlfriend, Nmachi, to help dissipate the gay rumors after the photo…

The Fourth Finger #14

Read all episodes of The Fourth Finger Solomon always got her depressed. And it wasn’t for the fact that he extorted her. Seeing him alone made her miserable and this time was no different. He had turned her entire day into gloom and left her with the bitter realization that her relationship with Raji was no different from the one she had with him many years ago. The same feelings of pleasure, affection, excitement; and later on, guilt and self-loathing plagued her. In addition, there was that mood of utter helplessness – you want to stop, you vow to stop but you find yourself going back. She had been told, from the moment she could understand words, that Jesus could save her. She had believed that he could. She had witnessed that he could. But somehow, these days he was silent, content to watch her make a mess of the…

“Beatrice, are you okay?” “Hmm?” “You’re playing with your food.” Beatrice looked up at Seriki and down at her food and realized she hadn’t eaten much. “You’re not used to Chinese?” She nodded. “Oh, I’m sorry. Why didn’t you say so?” She stretched out her lips in a polite smile and willed her mind back to her date. It had journeyed to Bankole all on its own, leaving her with Seriki. “So what would you like to eat?” Seriki asked with an endearing grin as he put aside his meal and stretched his hand and held hers. She replied with a shrug. She didn’t like his touch but she made no effort to withdraw. Alone together, he was more of a gentleman than he was with an audience. “I’m not so hungry, Seriki.” “Okay. Maybe we could go somewhere, have a couple of drinks and talk about you and why…

The parcel came in very early. He was still asleep when Nmachi knocked once on his door and poked her head in. “You got mail!” He peeked out from his blanket and stared at her through sleepy eyes. Nmachi, unlike him, took the fake relationship they shared seriously. They had successfully deceived the world that he wasn’t gay and that they were an item but behind closed doors, Guru barely managed her. Beauty and sexiness aside, she was the most annoying female he ever met. She didn’t understand the concept of personal space and acted as though there was some romantic attachment they shared. So far, she had seen him naked a couple of times, had ended up in his bed after drunken nights with friends and had forced hugs on him. He was now nursing regrets over the non-disclosure agreement he signed to remain glued to her for six…

PLEASE READ Many of you haven’t been receiving notifications in your emails like you used to. I apologize for it. The problem comes from the newsletter service. They began billing me monthly, and in dollars. Hence, I decided to withdraw. I saw no need paying for the service when everything on the blog is free.

That way, you get the latest updates the moment they’re posted.   Previously on Boys With Toys… Beatrice lost her baby and tried to hide it from Bankole but he found out and dumped her. Ruky zoomed in on him. Madu’s revenge on Guru comes to execution as a staged photo of Guru with another guy in an intimate pose goes viral. Madu steps in to save the day and thrusts a girlfriend…

This is one of those long posts, so enjoy. Don’t forget to drop a line at the end! Have a great weekend! Previous Episodes “What did you do?!” Urena barged into Madu’s office without permission. He was on the phone, looking out his window while he spoke. He gave Urena a glance and promptly ended the call. “You don’t know your superiors again, abi?” “What did he do to you that you had to do that to him?!” Madu left the window, smiling. “I should ask you that same question.” “Me? You boxed me into a corner! You forced my hand!” “Blah-blah-blah.” Madu took his chair after straightening out the top of his kaftan. “You’re so wicked, so evil! Everything they say about you is true!” “Thank you.” “God will punish you for this!” Madu gave a bored expression. “Are you done?” “And I’m going to tell Guru! I don’t…

Boys With Toys #10

Previous Episodes So many things were happening to Bankole all at once that he hardly had time to catch his breath. In a short amount of time, he had accomplished a lot and had also drifted away from Beatrice. He was scarcely home or even in the country. First, he had traveled for the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York with Guru and Mr. Duro. Then they moved to the UK for the Vodafone London Fashion Weekend where Guru made his first appearance on the runway as G&M’s new head designer. Upon their return, Bankole stayed long hours working in his studio at the office, preparing for the line’s first fashion show in Nigeria. He would return home only to shower, have breakfast and change, and then head back to unending hours of work. He made promises to Beatrice he couldn’t keep, cancelled dates she planned for them and…
