Belle 2 – The Reception

Previously on: Belle Cunningham Marquee, Garki Area 8, Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The reception hall in Cunningham Marquee is stunning, it is among the premier party venues. It is among the top three beloved wedding venues in Abuja. The banquet style tables in the large establishment could accommodate just about 1500 people . I appreciated…

Belle.

Ifesinachi Transport Booking Office, Jabi Central Bus Station, Phase 2, Abuja. June 18th 2012, 2130 hours. It was a chilly Monday evening. I had arrived earlier than the stipulated time. I was standing outside the passengers lounge as I waited for my bus to arrive. My bus was scheduled to leave at about 2230 hours….

Paradox.

“Can an omnipotent being create a stone so heavy that even he cannot lift it?” These are the types of thoughts you have in your head when you want to escape reality. Your phone rings. It’s your wife calling. She lives back in the village with your three children and your mother. It’s the sixth…

Plane Gazing.

When you talk about laughter, hers floats across the space like a genie from a lamp. It’s sensational and a bit tingling. And as always I would always recognize that laughter from anywhere. Even if there is a vast multitude of people I would still figure it out. It came from the stomach. One that…

Svala.

I have never been a fan of Biblical names. Nope. Not at all. They leave one with a certain heaviness rolling from the tongue. For instance the name Rehoboam or Jehozika. Some names are cool, others are not. I created Svala yesterday. A few minutes before midnight. When I was deep in some sort of…

November

Hey, It has been a while. I know it’s a bit lame if I said I had been thinking about you lately. But I would be lying to myself if I said I did not. Of course I do not want to look absurd by blowing up your phone with endless calls and texts. Nope….

Water-Bender.

“Why are you late this evening?” I have to confess that I was left by the bus. You are probably wondering where the hell I was till the bus left me. A few years back when I was in campus, I used to commute for classes between town and some place called Thogoto. Honestly, I…

#56 – Manman.

Manman, it has been three years since you left. Happy belated 56th birthday if you would still be walking on the face of this earth. You turned a year older in this world two days ago. I do not know of the other one yet. My bad. Your birthday passed and I did not write…

Dawida Chronicles- Chapter 1

Two Days before Le’fools, Day One, Mzedu, March 30th 2019, Voi – Taveta County There are three men in a car christened Bidii. It is a Toyota Platz to be precise. Inside that car there’s a man in his early sixties – Kraun and his son – Saitama in his early thirties. There’s an ongoing…

Sensei.

When karma decides to play ball games like the way it did with Sensei, it makes sure it enables the most difficult settings. He didn’t go looking for problems. Instead problems found him. He says that when you find your house is leaking, just know that it didn’t begin with a crack. Rather it began…
