We cannot walk into a mall or on the beach or even in church without receiving donations of curious stares. The reason is obvious; I am extremely beautiful and my husband is not as handsome as others would like him to be. We first met during one of my modelling

My Baby’s Baby

Yesterday was a very stressful day for me. From beginning to the end.

Yellow Pineapples

‘Come here Dorothy’, my mother said.

Need I Say More?

I stumbled upon a sheet of paper in my sister’s room today. I was looking for a document I believed I had left on her reading table and so I kept opening every sheet of paper on the table.

R v. Smith

*just because I’m studying for my Law of Evidence test which is to hold tomorrow*   This is my re-imagination of the case, R v. Smith. In secondary school, all my friends used to call me Smooth and I loved it. Although I could never let my mom hear them call me that, I indulged them as riskily as I could. My dad, if he had found out that instead

Prompt: January 10 32 Flavors Vanilla, Chocolate, or something else entirely     ‘For my birthday, I would like to have ice cream in 32 flavors’ she said weakly, as he sat by her hospital bed.

Lara and Mr Hopes

How we met: by Lanre I cannot exactly say the point when we officially met. Honestly. All I know is that I was at some special church program with serious hopes of seeing my ex and Lara was seated beside me. In the middle of the program, she yawned, shook her head and said, ‘Are you not hungry and bored?’ I was taken aback and amused but I gave a
