Best Man Duty #1

Good evening! Today, I bring you something new from one of us. A good friend whose comments you have seen here on the regular. He’s always been supportive; not just to me but to all the writers featured here. And when he drops a comment, he doesn’t leave one-liners. He always analyzes each scene and character. Here’s introducing Seye! And he comes with Best Man Duty. Please, enjoy, drop a comment and share. . . . . . . . Adjusting my gold coloured bow tie, I looked around the well-lit sitting area reserved for the couple and the train. The scenery already won me over: fresh rose flowers, a sweet creamy smell, the lighting was superb and the interior of the Church was what I call ‘splendide’. The walls, immaculately white coloured, matched with the POP ceiling. The whole scenery was Edenic, the exact one needed for a wedding. I…

Dear Sally, He Is Cold And Distant

Hi Fam, I want to share something with you and hope you help out. I get letters all the time asking for my advice or take on people’s personal issues. I answer all as best as I can but I guess I don’t always have all the answers, and that’s why I need your help here. Dear Sally, How are you and the family? And work? I know we don’t know each other that well yet but i need you advice on a personal ish. I noticed you write your thoughts about relationship ishes just like me, although i see mine as bringing up issues that people usually don’t talk about and then we talk about it. But unfortunately, people expect ‘us’ to know everything, which isn’t always the case. I think i’m blabbering now…lolx so i’ll just get to the point. But I think I should start by giving…

It’s Another Saturday… #1

PROLOGUE She lights four candles and places them at different compass points. A green candle in the north, a red in the south, a blue in the west and a yellow in the east. They rest on a red piece of cloth she has placed on her bedroom floor. She lights two more candles and holds them in her hands, both of them pink. Then she faces the red candle in the south, clad in nothing but her Jigida. “Powerful one, hear my prayer!” she calls out with emotion in her voice. “Lords of fire, burn my desire, three times over!” She breaks, lifts her head upwards and shuts her eyes. Tears slide to the sides of her face. She continues with unsteady lips. “Bring Jideofor back to me. Restore his passion for me. May the strange women in his life bring him nothing but pain. The same pain I…

Go Getter (Go-Get-Her) #17

Silence descended again in Sandy’s spacious sitting room. Outside, the sun had completed its journey to the top, and it hung there stranded in the wide expanse of cobalt blue sky, burning ferociously in frustration. It cast mighty ray balls onto the louvres, which in self defence, refracted the whole of it into the room. It cooked up the meagre air in circulation, and it told on the two men lying exhausted on the ground. Sweat was running down every part of their body in rivulets, washing away blood that would not clot. Their breath came out in reedy gasps like a flute stuffed with tiny stones, and their eyes were tightly shut. It took Bobo painful efforts to open his eyes, and when they finally did open, the beams of sunlight that fell into them caused him to cry out. His eyes hurt like hell. He rolled over…

Boys With Toys #13

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…

Season Finale: His Little Black Book #7

I sincerely apologize for the long break. You see ehn, many, many things have kept me away from writing. But I’m glad to have this final episode here today. I made it really long to compensate. So pick your tea, coffee, wine, juice, weed, whatever your poison, and enjoy the read. Secondly, I’d like to state that this series wasn’t inspired by 50 Shades of Grey. I started writing this story before any buzz of 50 Shades came out. My sister gave me the three e-books and I never read any of them. I don’t know why. I didn’t even follow the buzz online. But I finally watched the movie and got a good laugh when I discovered the main character’s name was Anna. Pure coincidence! Anyways, enough talk. Read!   I should have walked away the moment I entered that suite and looked into his hankering eyes. He was…

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…

Go Getter (Go-Get Her) #13

  It was at exactly fifteen minutes after Miss Sharon had left, and seven minutes after Ochuko had completed his perfunctory check on his daughter, that Doc Al got one of his hunches. It was a strong one, unlike any other he had ever had. And as always, he obeyed his hunch. He went to check out on Lucy. At first there was every urge to hasten up, to in fact disappear from his secluded dark upstairs office and appear in the white light-washed ward where Lucy was. He sensed danger so much that he could even touch it. None of his hunches had ever been wrong and although dimly he thought this one would break the rule, he knew it was only wishful thinking. There was danger.   He had completed the the first flight of stairs and was to take the final flight, in the same two mighty…

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…
