My Strap

If you met me some months back, you’d have met a shy 17 year old Northern girl who always had her bra-strap falling off her shoulder. It was always an awkward idea to me – wearing bras. I just never had that much luck with them. Either they undid themselves while I walked or one strap fell out and dangled out of my shirt sleeve or the straps just kept

He Will Cheat?

Prompt: Feb 26 Happily ever after ‘And they lived happily ever after.’ Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?   The week before I was to get married, I got a visit from my grandmother and my aunty. They sat across me in the living room of my father’s house and asked

My 1984 Situation

Prompt: January 9 1984 You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.   ‘Now, if you would turn with me to the book of Matthew, Matthew Chapter 10, we would be reading from verse 28’, my pastor’s voice rang through the auditorium. ‘Are we there?’ He said as he wiped the sweat from his face. ‘Yes Pastor!’ ‘Great. Now let’s read together. ‘And do

My Teacher’s Pet

It’s a new year!!! I’m quite excited because, amidst other things, it’s another opportunity to continue doing what I love – writing good stuff. I promised myself at the beginning of this year to be more consistent and focused, and so I have decided to stick to a compilation of writing prompts released by WordPress. With the guidance of these prompts, I would endeavor to write everyday of this year

Dear Jude

Dear Jude, This is the 365th letter I am writing to you. I have posted none of them because no one posts letters anymore. Okay, maybe they do – but not in this sense. Even if I wanted to post the letters to you, I do not have an address to send them to. I am writing these letters and keeping them in an Indomie box under my bed. Sometimes,

The Diary of The Bride

*Been off for a while… But I’m back. Here’s something from me.* 25.04.2015 Dear Diary, It’s 2:00am on the morning of my white wedding and I’m passively freaking out. I have gotten up like 20 times to look at my dress over and again. I have wondered at philosophical lengths as to whether I could have done this any better; the dress, that is. My shoes are the worst. They’ll

A Rather Weird One

Before you read this story, I’d tell you a little about the mythical incubus (plural: Incubi). According to the fairly reliable Wikipedia, ‘An incubus is a demon in male form who, according to mythological and legendary traditions, lies upon sleepers, especially women, in order to engage in sexual activity with them. Its female counterpart is the succubus.’ In essence, an incubus is what Nigerians would call a spirit husband. Caveat:

La Classe Des Oiseaux

(The Class of Birds)   ‘Les Oiseaux! Oh! Les Oiseaux! Oh! Uh C’mon C’mon Whoo! AH! Uh C’mon C’mon Whoo! Ah!   Imagine the above little war chant being shouted by tiny little 2 year old children. The Oiseaux were (are) an amazing bunch of children. None of the volunteer interns that worked with these kids complained about anything. In fact, we noticed that every free time we had, we’d

La Classe Des Papillons

(The class of butterflies)  This was my second class. Here, I worked with a bunch of amazingly interesting children of about 3-4 years old. As usual, some of these kids struck me more than the others did. Marie-Vital I don’t see why I would not list you as the first one on my list. You definitely did not catch my attention initially; but when you did, all my attention was
