The Scratch On Your Shoulder #4

“I don’t understand how one would have a child, and then go ahead to treat them like shit all their lives. It makes no sense.” “Well, not everyone is your darling mother.” “I know.” Hadiza smiled at her son and placed a hand on his to stop him from his present activity. “The pepper is soft enough, Nero.” He let go of the pestle in his hand, realizing that he had been aggressive with it. This was all Cheta’s fault—she and her sad life’s story. He hadn’t been the same since she opened up to him about herself. He hadn’t spoken to her since then either. An entire month had passed. He was certain that this whole time, she might have thought him angry with her, maybe even insensitive, considering all that she had told him. But that wasn’t the case. Nero was buying time, trying to kill the resurrected…

The Scratch On Your Shoulder #3

Read previous episodes of The Scratch on Your Shoulder It felt like he was going on a date with her for the first time. He was nervous, and he must have taken more than a thousand steps in his living room as he walked in circles, rehearsing the words he would say to her. “Why are you talking to yourself?” He stopped moving, just realizing that his six-year-old granddaughter was in the room with him. She was seated on the floor, legs crossed, elbows resting on her knees as round eyes stared up at him in curiosity. She was Fajr’s daughter. Fajr had become his favorite child after his marriage to Hadiza crashed, for the reason that she had been the most hit by the divorce and had chosen to stay with and comfort him. Basim, and the lastborn, Hajara, had not cared as much as Fajr did. Fajr had…

Where To Find Breasts #31

Fiyin’s front door was open, which wasn’t an unusual thing. She had never seen reason to take security seriously. Kyenpia had scolded her many times in the past over being halfhearted about her safety. She always reminded her of her financial status and how it made her a soft target for kidnappers. Leonel had also talked to her about hiring a bodyguard, but Fiyin laughed it off and told him that it was ridiculous. He had still gone ahead to send a security guard to man her gate and secure her house. He told Kyenpia that he was disappointed in Fiyin’s parents for taking their daughter’s safety so lightly. His conclusion was that they didn’t care about her. Kyenpia agreed with him to a certain degree, remembering how much Fiyin’s parents had left her to be all on her own through her formative years. It was ridiculous how they popped…

Where To Find Breasts #30

David could tell how mad Peggy was at him by the way she slept. If she lay on her side, her back to him, she was only a little pissed off. But if she lay on her tummy, it meant war. Last night, they had a minor fight. This morning, he awoke to find her lying face down. From experience, he knew that the best thing to do was to let her be. He brushed his teeth, slipped into casual clothes and left the house to the airport. Four days had gone by since Leonel got the news from Captain about Emem’s other life. A lot had happened in the meantime, especially with Leonel confronting Emem over what Captain had told him. He had hoped that it would turn out to be a lie, but she confirmed that the assertions were true. However, when Leonel probed deeper for more information,…

Ishi wasn’t expecting this much of a sabbatical calm this morning. He was prepared for the stares, the questioning faces, the wariness, but not the silence. It wasn’t that the silence was any different from what he was used to in the past whenever he was up on the stage to minister; it was more of what it meant. This was his first time ministering since he left the church. He was aware that his dereliction had been a disappointment to many, even though he hadn’t come out directly to tell them that he was turning away from the faith. The tabloids had been brutal with the gist about his relationship with Kyenpia, and unlike the previous scandal he had with her, he didn’t deny the rumors this time. It affected his followership, with a good half of his fans drawing conclusions about him. There was no smoke without a…

“You think Aanu did this?” Kyenpia’s voice sounded like it was coming from another space and time. Yenkat wasn’t there with her. She had switched off again, just as she had been doing since Bem broke the news to her. It was an on-and-off thing. Her mind came and went without her being able to control it. She couldn’t process the pain. She didn’t want to. She just wanted to get out of the hospital and resume her life. “She did it,” Yenkat answered Kyenpia’s question in a whisper. “I know what she’s capable of.” “You think it was in the juice? Maybe Bem can do a blood test to confirm.” “He said the likelihood of tracing the pill in my blood is slim, because of the time that had passed since I took the juice…” And off went Yenkat’s mind again. She was blank for a few seconds, but…

Merry Christmas!This episode is lengthy and it’s also the Christmas episode because I’m going on a trip and I’m not taking my laptop with me. So, take your time and enjoy and leave a comment. If you haven’t read Dugo before, you can follow the series on Twitter. Follow me @moskedapages and check my pinned tweet for the episodes. Read previous episodes of Where To Find Breasts This was it. This was the moment! It had to be engraved in her heart forever. Not that it was profound in the sense that it inspired deep thinking or left insightful bits that she could reflect on later. It was the shallowness of it. The indulgence. The excessiveness. The carefreeness and emotions that led up to this moment. Everything was summed up in this one crazy night, just to remind her that life was precious; to take her back to the past…

Where To Find Breasts #20

Read previous episodes of Where To Find Breasts The house was quiet. Kyenpia sat alone in her kitchen with Eliana’s poodle, snacking on cupcakes. Upstairs, Amaka was breastfeeding her baby. In the backyard, Yenkat and Omar were in discussion. Fiyin was in Lanre’s car, receiving a scolding from him over what had transpired between her and Jaiye. It had been three hours since the slapping incident, and she hadn’t uttered a word. Not even when Lanre burst upon the scene and almost had Jaiye to the floor because he had concluded that he assaulted Fiyin. Jaiye had pushed him off and advanced at Fiyin, yelling, “You’re now hitting me? What if I hit you back?” Lanre then withdrew and positioned himself between them, just in case Jaiye went through with his threat. But Jaiye stomped out of the compound, leaving everyone stunned at Fiyin. Every attempt they made to get…
