Rosette -2-

Sunday “It’s slightly late I know, but thanks for agreeing to make an exchange for the goods purchased.” “No need at all, it should be I who should be thanking you for coming at such a short notice. I know you were probably in the middle of cooking a storm. It’s fun how you waft…

Rosette.

Sunday, It’s someone’s prerogative to tell their story and also to change their mind at any point before publishing, but it’s annoying as hell. Throws a spanner in the works. It has happened before whenever someone developed cold feet. I had not planned to drink. It hadn’t crossed my mind. I had a bottle of…

Villain

They say I’m a pariah. A villain, an outlaw. That I wear a black hat with a certain pseudonym as my signature. They said I drove a grey dudu car with a faulty driver’s window in the gloom of the city’s grey skies threatening to break open at any minute. It was true that the…

Belle 12 – The Games

(I wrote this novella story for the better first half of last year and put it on hold for a number of reasons. The book is almost complete, just a few touches and it will be available to the public. I intend to release it before the second month of the year. Happy new year…

His Mess is Mine.

Amwadeghu, I wish I had met you earlier and narated my story to you. But due to this Covid season I’ll just put it in a draft and hope this email finds you. I’m in no position to meet you simply because I already have an image of you in my head. And I wouldn’t…

Belle 11 – Fire on Fire

Previously on Belle: Belle-10-Glimpses Jonathan Mother had always thought that I was a hopeless romantic when it came to Belle.

Belle 10 – Glimpses

Previously on Belle: Belle-9-Reminiscing BAKO There was one thing I did not want to say… I was out of words when tears streamed down your face in our last few hours together and you sobbed into my chest. I wanted to say it so badly. So badly that I didn’t know if I would be…

Belle 9 – Reminiscing

Previously on: Belle-8-Ifuoma A month had passed since Belle got married to Ifuoma. Jonathan reached Lagos safely. He slipped back to his solitary ways. Occasionally he thinks of Belle, but he is more baffled and pissed off by Rosemary. He is wary of her. He went quiet as soon as he reached back home. He…

Out Of Love – 2

Remember the story I covered sometimes back last year known as Out-of-Love? About a certain lady whom I know as *Agrippina*? Her message came abruptly, not that I was expecting it. Not at all. She was the last thing to cross my mind. She sent it at 0230 hours. Normally I do not answer calls…

Belle 8 – Ifuoma

Previously on: Belle-7-Rosemary Previously on Belle Present Day, Constance Ephelia, Mahe Islands, Seychelles Island. 1030 Hours. “It seems Belle woke up early and she is taking in all the beauty and scenery from the balcony.” Ifuoma thought to himself. He took his phone from the drawer which stood next to their huge king-sized bed. There…
