The Fourth Finger #6

“Can you go through the test result again, sir?” Lade was observing her doctor. The man sat, eyes on a piece of paper in his hands. Just few seconds ago, he told her she was pregnant. It was not good news. “You are pregnant Mrs. Ogunfuwa,” he repeated. “Both the blood test and ultrasound confirm it. Congratulations. I’m sure Mr. Ogunfuwa would be elated.” “How many weeks, sir?” “Roughly six weeks.” “But I don’t have any symptoms.” “They may or may not come. Not every pregnancy is alike. All the same, you should start taking your vitamins. I will have you on Pregnacare Plus, given your history, and we will monitor you closely. And until your next visit which will be in three weeks, please take care of yourself. You already know the drill.” “Yes, doctor.” She watched as he wrote down unreadable things in her file and also filled…

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…

Previous Episode “How?… What do you mean?… What about…?” “Now!” Shaking, she complied. He got down too and came round to the driver’s side.

Please let my children go.” “Wetin I wan use your children do?” He pointed to the passenger side. “Abeg, enter front, before you kill pesin.” He shook his head. “Women drivers.” She stared at him for a few…

After Dark: Dear Mr and Mrs Anonymous, My Boyfriend is a Serial Cheater

We’ve been having letters pouring in and this is one of them from T Please email us at mrandmrsanonymous@yahoo.com if you need help or need to talk. You can find another answered email about masturbation on 360nobs.com Thank you Madam for that heart touching piece. You said it all!!! It was like you were talking about me. From the abortion, heartbreaks, to  finally being cold hearted. This description “A young boy whose hormones are all around the place and is not yet ready to settle down, who has not yet grasped the concept of fidelity wants a girl who would be faithful to him, be good in bed, cook for him, care for him, respect his family, treat him like a king and bring good fortune to him” is the exact picture of my boyfriend. He says I am that girl and we have been dating since February,2013. You know, guys cannot eat…

Test-The-Terone Why Must I Submit to My Husband

My husband and I wrote this post. This is his first and probably last feature here. Dude loves his privacy. But you must know that I did all the writing. He talked, mostly and shared pointers. Parts of it have been edited. So if you’re a wife or a husband or you want to get married soon, you might be interested in this post. When oga and I were discussing this topic, I prompted the following conversation. ME: Luv, are you stronger than me? OGA: Of course. ME: Are you smarter? OGA: No. I wasn’t shocked. He firmly believes in equality of the sexes. Still I piqued his mind. ME: Are you wiser? OGA: No. That’s one of the places I feel we’re equal. But if you ever beat me physically till it hurts, I should be taken to Kikirkiri to face a firing squad for being a disgrace to…

No Heart Feelings #10

Sorry, this is coming a bit late. I tried to be productive this weekend. Tried… Thank God I got my mojo back. PREVIOUS EPISODES Terdoo opened her eyes and stared up at the ceiling. It was his cologne that hit her first.  She closed her eyes. It hadn’t been a dream. Everything that happened the night before actually happened. There was nothing she could do to change it. All she wanted now was to get away from him as far as possible. She moved a little, making sure she was careful not to wake him but his hand drew her closer, fitting perfectly on the curve of her waist. Her heart stopped beating, her breath held. She didn’t want him to wake up and subject her to an awkward moment she feared she would never recover from. Not that she could even recover from allowing him into her bed the…

No Heart Feelings #8

PREVIOUS EPISODES Terdoo was tired. Her cotton t-shirt clung to her sweaty body like a second skin. She had been determined to clean the entire house until every corner sparkled, not because it was necessary but because she was restless. The need to keep herself busy gnawed at her so bad that she swept and mopped and dusted and wiped with an unhealthy obsession. Now done, the restlessness still remained. At first she blamed her unease on the disarming presence of Jimi. It had been easier for her to like him in the silence of her heart and from a distance for the past few years but now that he was constantly around her, she was finding it hard to fight the strong chemistry that was brewing between them. She had long settled on not letting herself fall for any man, especially not when her past was still hot on…

To Tame A Virgin #10

Read previous episodes of To Tame Virgin HERE Kachi couldn’t believe what she was about to do as her fingers formed a fist and rapped softly at the door before her. She had prepared a speech with solid points and a winning ending but as she waited for the door to be opened, she felt her nerves give way. Travis who was beside her was hopping from one foot to the other restlessly and humming a tune she couldn’t quite make out. She knocked at the door again and pulled in a bolstering breath as she waited. “Maybe he’s not at home,” Travis said and continued with his music, adding a rap Kachi thought sounded vaguely familiar. “Yeah, maybe.” Kachi brought her bag to her face and was going for her own copy of the key when the door opened from within and Dike appeared before her with a sleepy face…

To Tame A Virgin #8

Today’s post is dedicated to Toyin Onifade. She knows why. Read previous episodes of To Tame A Virgin HERE #8 Uyi had not been able to sleep. A couple of things were bugging his mind. The first was the fact that his mother called. She never called unless she saw one of her ‘visions’, and they were usually bad. “Omoruyi, I don’t like what I saw oh,” she spoke into the phone, breathing heavily. “Mama, what have you seen now?” he had sighed. “Hmmm… I can’t tell you but I need you to pray and stay away from strange girls, Omoruyi. Stay away from them! They will destroy you.” When she hung up, Uyi put his phone aside and began to wonder which girl was strange in his life. Was it Temi who had disappeared without warning? Or Vivian who had been calling him and begging to visit Abuja again?…
