A Christmas Love Story

‎”Jingle bells, Jingle bells, jingle all the way……..” “Will somebody switch off that blasted noise?” a voice thundered from the masters room upstairs. Molly and Jane snapped to attention and quickly switched off the radio. Daddy was not in a good mood. And he would not be in a good mood until christmas passed. Every…

The Situation

It all started innocently. Christopher, a struggling young man, had gone to the backyard of the compound to bring in the clothes he had washed that morning. It was a public compound, with houses as old as the ancient times, with no hope of improvement. The lines were directly behind his neighbour’s flat. The sharp…

The Double

“Who are you?”  The other girl was tall, beautiful and light skinned. She wore a red halter neck top and skinny blue jeans. Her hair was perfectly styled and she had no blemish on her skin. She sat poised on the settee, a soft orange drink in her hands, sipping quietly as she read the…

Love And Lust 2

“How do you know?” Lisa asked in surprise. Doris snorted. “You think am a dummy? I wasn’t sleeping last night. I saw you and that guy outside last night.” Lisa cringed. She really thought Doris had been sleeping. She would have to be more careful next time. Next time? Was she planning a next time? …

‎Love and Lust

“I shouldn’t be here.” Even as Lisa said this to herself, her legs moved forward steadily. She had no control over them, their determined strides contrasted with her quivering heart. She got to the gate and knocked. ‘Leave! Leave now. It’s not too late to back out’ a small voice whispered in her ears. She…

Briella

“I’ll be landing soon.” Richard said over the phone. I shivered, my body already tingling with anticipation. “Okay sweetie” I replied. “See you soon. Think about me and all the naughty things i’ll do to you.” I giggled seductively and cut the call. My body hummed with anticipation. I felt like I was going to…

Junior Boy

“What are you doing here?” The sharp voice startled Daniel. He brought his head up. It was a girl, a senior girl. He knew her face. She was said to be the girlfriend of Senior Kelachi, the most wicked senior in the boys dorm. Embarrassed, he tried to wipe the tears in his eyes surreptitiously…

Sweet Poison

The exam pressure was getting too much. Her eyes were tired of reading, her body needed to be in another position except sitting, she needed fresh air. So she decided to take a stroll through the Love Garden that evening. As she got to the road, she saw Alex, her jovial funny course mate. He…

Her Prince Charming

There was no rain, no sun on the day events changed. There was a lot of wind rustling the trees, making the grasses dance to its rhythm. The houses in the area were all lavishly constructed, each straining to be better and bigger than the other, as were the cars that occasionally drove up the…

Ethelle

When I entered the dormitory, there was some commotion going on. Apparently, there was a tussle over who would be Ethelle’s school mother. I smiled. Ethelle was a pretty girl, she had a small stature and a quiet appearance that made you want to take care of her. I wasn’t surprised. While their arguments were…

The Wedding Guest

The wedding was in full swing when I arrived. The DJ was pounding the speakers into pulp, not letting anyone think, much less speak. The couple were dancing on the floor, crowd of well wishers dancing along with them while others sprayed money in the air. I quickly spotted an empty seat in the middle…
