Unfulfilled Promises #18 By Audrey Timms

Oleng wanted to brave it, she wanted to rant and rave and ask if she was God but she knew that wouldn’t get her anywhere, what with Michelle already gearing up for a fight. She had to appeal to the motherly side of the elderly woman. Oleng knelt down before her mother-in-law and put her two palms together. “Please ma. Please don’t send me away. Please. I’ve done everything possible save go to a native doctor to get pregnant. The doctors say Dave and I are okay, that all we need is time. Please ma, I know you’ve been very patient but please give me more time. Please.” “Wetin you dey talk for there?” Michelle jumped up in anger. “You mean we should wait for another four years. See, even if we wait till the second coming of Christ, you still won’t get pregnant. Just peacefully and quietly…

There was a knock on the door when he was inside so she went to open it. “What? What are you doing here?” Michelle screamed when she saw Oleng. Oleng surveyed her coolly. Michelle roughly pushed her aside and entered the house. Oleng shut the door but stayed by it. “So, Dave is still going out with you? I thought he had sense. What have you done to him? You Calabar witch!” she raged. “Michelle, what is the meaning of this?” Dave demanded fiercely as he came into the living room. “She has cooked for you, hasn’t she and you have eaten. She has used her Calabar witch to charm you, hasn’t she?” Michelle spelt out bluntly as she faced her brother. “Michelle, I’ll not stand here and watch you insult my fiancée.” Dave was furious. “My fiancée.” she mimicked mockingly. “Fiancée,…

Read Previous Episodes Dave quickly swerved his car to the curb like a driver in an action flick and practically jumped out of it. He walking briskly to where Oleng and Collins were standing, staring at each other. “Angel, what’s he doing here?” he asked his stunned girlfriend. Before she could reply, Collins leaned on the car and lazily said, “Dude, isn’t it obvious?” Oleng saw Dave flex his fingers and knew he intended hitting Collins. She quickly held his hand. “Please Dave. This whole thing will end right now.” Dave gave Collins a murderous look but kept quiet. Oleng looked uneasily around her. Passersby were beginning to get interested in the whole scenario. She knew she had to end it here despite the fact that it would break someone’s heart. She walked up to Collins. He stood straight, smiling. “Collins,” she…

Unfulfilled Promises #13 By Audrey Timms

Read His Little Black Book #5HERE Linda Akpan just sat there smiling. Perfect! Things were going as planned. Her fight with her sister would make the latter not come begging when she saw they needed her help. She would see how they’d survive without her. She believed they would regret their actions but pride wouldn’t bring them begging. After all, she had been their sustenance all these years.   She shook her head in disappointment. Oleng was still a fool. She was still gullible to men. Instead of avoiding hurt by being like her; swearing off men after what that half-caste did to her. She shook her head in disappointment. She however smiled. If Oleng thought this was the end of her controlling her life, she was dreaming.       ###############   Oleng wept anew when her aunt told her that her mother had thrown her out also. When…

Unfulfilled Promises #12 By Audrey Timms

When she was through with her packing, she went to Zinny and Marvy’s place to tell them she was leaving. They were both shocked and disappointed but when she told them the reason why she was leaving, they understood. She invited them over to Calabar and they promised to come. She went over to Dave’s house and told him of her intention. He tried to persuade her to change her mind but she was adamant. “I can’t stand them any longer.” she cried. “I don’t want to be the one who came between you and your mother.” She had to laugh at that. “The woman was no longer my mum before now. Even before I left Port Harcourt.” she bitterly told him. He had to shake his head with sadness at that. “You’re bent on leaving me here all alone? I actually came back here because…

Merry Christmas, Guys! I sincerely apologize for not posting this as scheduled. My modem has been missing for five days now, thanks to the three-year old in my house. I just found it today and you won’t believe where she kept it. smh…after I turned the house upside-down. Anyhoo, enjoy the episode today. I’ll bring another tomorrow to make up. As for His Little Black Book, it’s not in my hands o. You guys should bug the Manswers guys on Twitter and Facebook. It’s with them. Wish I could post it here… She prayed she would be able to remember Zinny’s house. She went the wrong way at first before finally finding the house. When she saw the gateman, she knew she had gotten the exact place. The man didn’t even recognize her. She didn’t blame him though after all, it’s been six years and she hadn’t visited here…

Unfulfilled Promises #10 By Audrey Timms

Oleng looked at the bank manager who to her was smiling foolish, not smugly like he thought he was and thanked him. She quietly got up from her seat and walked away with her head held high. That was the last time she would visit the office. She had come there for materials for her project but the bank manager insisted on going out with her first which would of course end in a hotel room but she refused. To hell with him, she said inwardly. When she got to the banking hall, she thanked the customer care officer who had been of immense help to her. She ignored the others who probably thought she intended going out with their boss. Well, it was their own headache. Oleng knew she was looking good in her cream corporate shirt and black skirt with high heels so she was not surprised…

Unfulfilled Promises #9 By Audrey Timms

Good evening, fam! I just want to drop a quick announcement before you read.  I will be withdrawing TM David-West’s Take Me As I Am for now, to resume it next year. I noticed there aren’t much responses to the series and I’m not too pleased about it, considering it’s such a wonderful read (you’ll be sorry you missed it). I do blame myself for the poor response, though, because I feel like I’m loading the blog with two many posts in a week. I’ll like you to follow each story and if it seems like there’s too much here for you to read, then I’ll wait until Unfulfilled Promises is over so you can concentrate on Take Me As I Am. The reason I introduce other writers here is so that you can enjoy their works and encourage them, but in the case where you neither enjoy them nor they don’t get…
