Fated

This story was written by Fortune Ohaegbulam. He’ll feature here from time to time. Please, drop a comment. Thank you! I took a long drag of the cigarette and my lungs almost exploded. It had been a long time I smoked, having made a conscious effort to kick the habit,. However, it seemed the hot sensation coursing through my insides was what my body which had been earnestly screaming for release really needed. I exhaled and immediately asked the kiosk attendant to fix me two shots of locally-brewed gin which I gulped down in one swallow. I almost choked as the liquid threatened to reflux its way back through my oesophagus. I tried to pray; amidst all the madness it seemed the only reasonable thing to do. I wondered if God would hear my prayer with all the drinking and smoking. I only hoped for the sake of Felicia that…

It’s Another Novocaine Saturday #7

Hi lovelies! Just wanted to surprise you with this episode this evening but before you read, here’s a short announcement Please tune in this Friday. I’ll be here to remind you again on Friday and to bring you a new series from @Ibukunwrites Have a cool evening. This episode is dedicated to Seye who recently walked down the aisle with his sweetheart. I wish you a happy married life, Seye. . . . . . . . He looks into his bag. He has packed light. Nothing more than the basics. A few shirts, a few pants, a pair of shoes, underwear and toiletries. He knows he is missing important items but his head cannot just figure out what needs to be added. Genesis usually does his packing for him. She would include all he needs and extra things that never cross his mind. Sometimes she tosses in little surprises…

It’s Another Novocaine Saturday #6

I love you guys. I don’t even know how to start expressing how much. When I said show me love on Bellanaija, I didn’t know y’all will take it that seriously. I was dumbfounded when I saw the comments. Good Lord! Na so una love me? How do I say thank you? How do I show my gratitude? The love you expressed in the comment section doubled the sales of the book, beating Fish Brain Madhouse records which has been there since January. Hmmmm… Thanks a lot. And here’s that my famous kiss. So in retaliation, I will give the book freely to three lucky peeps next week. Today, enjoy IANS. I’ll see you in the comment section.. . . . “Awwww.” “Isn’t this the cutest sight?” I groan loudly. I don’t know for how much longer I can sit in this car with indecisive females and take one more…

It’s Another Novocaine Saturday #3

Hi guys, I want to say something… I have failed you guys… By not answering comments as I should… I feel bad over this… I am very sorry…. I’ll start doing things right from today. Thank you. And for today’s episode… Kasiobi’s mouth has just gone dry. His hands holding his phone are both unable to move. Lexus’ last message has somehow become the only thing on his phone screen. -Yours, Kas. She’s your baby. His mouth gets drier. “Kas, what’s going on?” Kira questions but her voice seems to him like it’s coming from outer space. He has no idea what she just said. Everything else apart from the message ceases to be relevant. “Kas?” He feels a little pain on his arm and comes to. “Talk to me or I’ll pinch you again,” Kira threatens. “Excuse me, abeg.” He pushes her away and gets off the bed. He…

It’s Another Novocaine Saturday #2

Good evening, I’m so sorry for the missed episode of The Immortals’ Code. I was too lazy to do a last minute edit. Please, don’t be mad. Read the first episode of It’s Another Novocaine Saturday It is Noka who first notices the ring on my finger barely seconds after I let them into the house. She has an eye for glittery things, a look of greed I’ve come to accept as part of her nature. And it’s not just the look. It’s her entire person. She is of a covetous kind. It was for this reason she got pregnant for Ibro and became his wife and is now in a loveless marriage. One would expect that she would have learned after all this time but she gets worse by the day. She clutches my hand and gasps. “Honey! This is so sexy!” I smile at her. I think…

The Fourth Finger #20

Previous episodes of The Fourth Finger Tired after her long meeting, Christie arrived at the hospital to visit Bernadette and her baby at exactly 7pm. A nurse at the reception, upon recognizing her, presented a perky smile. “Mrs. Adediran, longest time! So nice to see you. How is the family?” “Everyone’s fine.” “And Boluwatife? Last time I saw her, her front teeth were out.” “She’s all grown now.” “Aww, my love to her. You’re here to see Mrs. Uchendu, right?” “Yes.” “Well, she is not out of surgery yet,” the nurse replied. Christie put out a confused face. “She had a caesarian?” “Yes but she’s still in the theater. There was a little complication and they had to wheel her back in.” “Complication? What happened?” “Nothing serious. It will be sorted out. The baby is fine, though. You can go and see him. It’s not visiting hours but just because…

It’s Another Saturday…#22

Eid Mubarak, guys! This one is for the holidays just because I love you. Another comes on Saturday. Have an awesome night, fam! Baby Daddy  “Love without complications? Honey, that’s like asking for a rose without thorns.” I look at the bunch of roses in mommy’s hands. She is wearing gardening gloves but she remains careful not to touch the thorny stems of the flowers. “Tola, please pass me that vase I gave you.” A sulky Tola picks a green vase at her feet that contains clean water and hands it to me and I pass it over to mommy who smiles into my eyes. I love her garden. The flowers, the way they are meticulously arranged, their different fragrances all coming to one intoxicating fragrance make me want to forget that I’m having a not-so-good day. Jide and I had this nasty fight this morning and I miss him…

To Tame A Virgin #6

Things are going to change drastically for the characters of this story. Some hearts will break, some will find love, what has been hidden in darkness will come to light and like water spilled to the ground which cannot be taken back, some of these changes will be irreversible.And here it begins…Just a kiss. That was what she said. But it was more than that to both of them. It had been ignited from the moment she raped his mouth at Mr. Enenche’s and since then, they hadn’t been able to stop the fire that drew them into an endless kissing game. Uyi had left the Enenches’ that evening, embarrassed and in a hurry but he could not hastily erase the taste of Dami’s tongue over his all through that night. Work was a bore for him the next day and with Temi’s absence, his weariness was turned up a…
