Roses And Thorns #17

Haliru was becoming uneasy. He looked around him, trying to see if his bride was coming. He dabbed his fore-head with a soft towel, as he was visibly sweating, even in the air-conditioned cathedral. Was it possible that Tehilah had changed her mind about marrying him? “Oh no” he gasped. He was not worried about becoming the laughing stock, but he was worried about losing all his dreams; all the dreams of loving her and her child, and building a family with them. His thoughts were interrupted by the sound of the heavy oak doors of the cathedral opening. He turned abruptly, with a big smile on his face. Yes, his bride had shown up, or so he thought. “I hope I am not late to the party!” Adara walked up the aisle, with a mischievous smile on her face. “Happy married life, Haliru.” “You were not invited!” Haliru could…

Stranger In Lagos #6

HALIM I am running away. It’s the cowardly thing to do but I can’t stand one more second in this city. Sitting in the backseat of my favorite cab, I give my house one last look before we zoom out of the quiet neighborhood that has been home to me for years. There is a note for Aunty Ada on my bed, and right beside it is another for Eben. I have also left my engagement ring behind. Last night, Eben visited, despite me making it clear that I didn’t want to see him. He came to plead with me to try another hospital; this time, in Lagos. Aunty Ada agreed with him. They believed there was a mistake somewhere. I gave them no answer. I think it’s insensitive of them to try to put me through hell the third time. I’m falling apart as it is. I can’t even…

Omoge Campus #7

Read episodes 1- 6 of Omoge Campus TEMI After an hour and a half at the clinic, I left there feeling considerably better. I had filled a form that was basically a questionnaire I guessed was meant to assess my state of mental health. I had another appointment in a week and my therapist urged me to call him the moment I had any issues. While money has never been a problem for me, I was quite surprised when neither the receptionist nor the doctor himself said nothing about my bill. After signing all the necessary paperwork, I bade them both goodbye, promising to call if anything was amiss. After being cooped up in my apartment for days, I had no desire to rush back there so I decided to make a quick stop at home and visit with my family before going back to school. I booked an Uber…

Boys With Toys #7

Anticipate a Valentine’s special next weekend. I won’t tell you what it is but just anticipate. This post is dedicated to @Coolrosebelle from her beau. Previous Episodes It was love at first sight for Khalid when she came into the kitchen. She was a gorgeous little girl with a contagious smile that touched something profound in him. She looked every bit like Monet except for a Nubian nose he was sure was from her father. Brown, curious eyes searched Khalid’s before they looked up at Mrs. Tunji for some form of introduction. “Hope, darling, this is another friend of your mommy’s. Could you say hi to him?” Hope gave a wave and a smile. “He’s Uncle Khalid,” Mrs. Tunji introduced. “Khalid, meet Hope.” At first Khalid was unable to say a word. He was not so good with kids and this one in particular, was making him feel all sorts…

Boys With Toys #4

It took just three weeks to get them all out of sorts. Meetings upon endless meetings birthed sleepless nights where they had to come up with the year’s calendar, embark on researches, build a system on the foundation of a pre-existing one with a mix of a totally new fashion culture to fit the market, and finally to emerge with fresh designs for a new era of Guru and Monet. It was total madness! What came as a blessing to all four guys was fast turning into a burden and they found themselves stretched beyond their limits. For Madu who was in charge of public relations, he devised a way to lessen his load. Being the lastborn in his family, he was accustomed to having people do his duties, hence he simply thrust the bulk of his responsibilities to some young dude who was only too glad to be employed…

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?”…

Novocaine Knights #8

Yesterday, we ended the HadasahLingerie/Novocaine Knights Giveaway. Thanks to all who participated. Better luck next time. Definitely, more giveaways will come. @Mystiq18 won the final prize. A note to all the winners. Please, if you have any complaints, let me know and I will forward it to Hadassah Lingerie. Enjoy this weekend’s episode. Previous Episodes EYIMOFE “I am so sorry, Nick.” Mofe left the comfort of her luxurious bed and took a chair in one corner of her hotel room as Dominic recounted details surrounding Lexus’ brain surgery. She listened attentively, noting the deep emotion in his husky tone. “But she’s not in a coma, is she?” Mofe asked. “No. In fact, I just spoke to one of the neurosurgeons right before I called you. She woke up about an hour ago and went back to sleep. She’s okay.” Mofe was relieved at the good news. “But you don’t sound…

Novocaine Knights #4

PREVIOUS EPISODES WURA Not today. Wura groaned and fought hard from stomping her foot in agitation. She was having a bad day already. First, she had had another of her nightmares. Second, Mahmud was yet to call her; it was a week since they last spoke and she had called twice and gotten an engaged line. Third, she was late for church. Fourth, an unsightly zit had popped up above her upper lip. Fifth, her skirt was a little too tight and she didn’t have a replacement. And sixth, her period appeared from the blue, which would explain the fourth and fifth. Jesus, why me? She groaned and took off her stained underwear. She flung it in a bucket in her bathroom and hurried out to the sitting room, a towel around her body. Checking to see that Kasi was nowhere in sight, she called out, “sanitary pad, anyone! Two…
