Biyankavitch #5

“You must be losing your mind, Vicky.” The anger in Idris’ voice was something old and rancorous. It came from a place of disremembered memories. Victoria found his eyes burning into her when she looked into the mirror. He had a manner of expressing his anger in calm. It took a lot to get a fiery reaction from him. Inside he could be frothing with venom while he left a smile on his face. This character had made him a dangerous man to toy with in the past. He always struck his enemies with the same hands he used in feeding them. Victoria kept her stare in the mirror. It was neither cheeky nor welcoming. She denied him the pleasure of a reaction as she engaged herself in her nightly routine of warm coconut oil body massage. He had just returned home. It was almost midnight and she wasn’t sure…

Biyankavitch #4

Muna snuck into the Bahago house a little past 4 a.m., after her fifth can of beer began to taste like piss. She wasn’t a drunk, but sometimes she found solace in a can or two. Tonight, she had needed more, looking for that usual relief, but the beer left her empty and sore, and with recollections of what she had done to Archie. Also recollections of her actions after she left his place. She had driven to see her ex who had pinned her to the wall, spread her legs apart as he nailed her while choking her. The sex had given her temporary relief, especially at the point when she almost passed out while at the peak of her orgasm. Afterwards, the emptiness returned. Thoughts of losing Archie for good left her scared. She was more afraid of the shame she was going to face if he pushed…

Love, Your Enemy #1

I promised to post this on the 4th but I just couldn’t. Something happens to me when I start off with new characters. I take my time to feel them, even after writing them. I guess the ‘feeling’ time was not enough. I needed just a few more days. I apologize for raising your hopes up and bashing them. But I’m making up for it with two episodes, and also because it’s Women’s Day. Enjoy the first! Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. -Psalm 23 Najib was solid as a rock. Dependable, calm, collected and trusted by his boss to keep things together when all else was falling apart. He could be snatched out of bed in the middle of the night and thrown into the midst of a world war, and yet would somehow come out unscathed;…

The Darker Berry #6

And because we love you guys like that… Enjoy! When he ran up the stairs to his bedroom, he told himself his mother’s statement about Umi was the only reason he thought about her as a potential spouse. He was done with relationships and commitments. And even though his friends had set him up on one or two dates after the last relationship ended, he had found a way to wriggle out of it. Still, he found himself musing, thinking about what Umi would be like if she were his girlfriend. Would she be domineering – authoritative while they were in public or having random conversations – and submissive while they made love? Or maybe it would be the other way round. Maybe she’d be easier to talk to and harder to fuck. Fuck. He needed to stop thinking about sex because somehow, since he had her, when…

It’s Another Novocaine Saturday #17

Good evening, everyone… Enjoy… I’ve totally lost my mind. I don’t think I can heal from this pain. I can’t comprehend why I should be feeling it in the first place. I feel betrayed, broken and lost. I don’t know who I am or where to begin my life from. The question that keeps hounding me is who is Nididiamaka Onuora? Who am I? I haven’t eaten since that dumb Oba broke the news to me yesterday. I haven’t come out of my room either. He left the house after I kicked him out of the room the moment he told me he was crazy about me. I was hoping he wouldn’t return but the stupid boy came back and has been bugging me ever since. He thinks he can switch from being my younger brother to my boyfriend. Such an idiot. No wonder his friends call him Nasty. His…

Hunter’s Game #11 By @Oge_writes

Read previous episodes of Hunter’s Game “Babe, look this way.” Tinu held her phone up and shaped her lips into a pout as she leaned into Williams whose phone was held up to his ears. William did as he was told and flashed a smile. Tinu took a few selfies and proceeded to edit one for her Instagram. “No, I won’t be back until next week…” William was saying. She soon uploaded the picture with the caption “When bae decides to spoil you with a spontaneous pre-birthday trip. #MadridLoading #BooIsBae” “Alright, thanks. I’ll look into it then.” Williams hung up and planted a quick kiss on Tinu’s forehead. He saw the picture she had just finished uploading and shook his head affectionately. “You ehn, one of these days, we’ll get kidnapped and it will be all your fault. Every single thing we do goes on Instagram or Snapchat or Twitter.”…

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…

Hunter’s Game #9 By @Oge_writes

“Ijeoma?” “Take these things off me! I don’t want the surgery anymore.” Dr. Haliru was torn between relief and confusion as to her sudden change of heart but he did not question her. Rather he did as he was told and soon, Ijeoma was upstanding beside him. “I need your phone. One last time.” Dr. Haliru handed the phone over to her in silence. Ijeoma dialed Leela’s number quickly and took in a deep breath as it began to ring. “Where are you?” Her eyes narrowed quickly. “Where exactly?” She pursed her lips and rolled her eyes. “Don’t get dramatic. Give me an exact address.” She listened for a few seconds and nodded. “Pack your things. I’ll be with you in an hour.” She hung up and passed the phone back to Dr. Haliru. “This never happened. You will not see or hear from me again, I promise.” Dr. Haliru…

Hunter’s Game #8 By @Oge_writes

Read older episodes of Hunter’s Game “I want nothing to do with you. I only want the boy’s mother. Call your agents off and send the boy back to me. His mother will come running.” Kunle laughed mirthlessly and stroked his beard as he regarded Malik’s boss. Kunle was in his mid-forties and completely bald. He was quick-witted and had an ever pleasant disposition but was known to bring down the hammer without hesitating whenever necessary. He was Leela’s boss and had been at the security agency for almost 20 years. “You know that’s impossible. My job is just as important to me as yours is to you.” “You’re treading dangerous grounds.” Malik’s boss said stiffly. “Isn’t that what I signed up for? Why does that bother you?” “You have no idea who I am or what I can do. You really do not want to remain in my way.”…
