His Tears

I saw a video, a terrible video that my heart aches and hurts, I have sweaty palms and I am really scared. So a man drives into the bank premises wanting to deposit his money, his hard earned money. He probably has giving up a lot more than necessary to make as much as that … Continue reading His Tears

At The Riverbank

The early morning sky was as dark as the night that had just passed, painted with heavy clouds. The freezing air was clouded  with dust and dry leaves as the wind blew them like a hurricane. Bimbo braved the eerie weather and ran to the stream a couple of miles away to fetch the water … Continue reading At The Riverbank

‘A-a, Baba-o, wetin I do now?’ Baba-o went ahead to regale us of the drama that had played out the previous evening, when, as one of the spectators of our training session, he was leaving through the remaining entrance when he was accosted by a certain woman. Make no mistake; it was as if Baba-o … Continue reading Addicted (II)

Addicted (I)

‘Ike! Ike!’ The ball rolled to my feet at average speed, and with high prospects, I expertly controlled it to a stop. I looked up and there was Obi, the burly central defender, charging at me, trying to decipher my next move with the ball. His breath came in short sharp gasps and could be … Continue reading Addicted (I)

Asking for his mercies and favours for the day. 6:45 am He hops into the shower, singing his favourite and Grammy award-winning song. Yes!

The Other Guy

“What will you have today, Young Sir?” the waitress asked while pouring hot coffee into his mug. “The usual.” He replied, not looking at her but looking instead at the other guy. The other guy, too, was staring at him intensely. They didn’t know each other, yet the contest had been on for weeks now, … Continue reading The Other Guy

The Persistence of Neon, A Short Story

Writings By Ender

When she entered the room I noticed her eyes eyes first. They were bright blue and held a secret. She smiled at the clerk at the counter. She came every weekend accompanied by two bodyguards but they weren’t the expected sort of guard, rather two tall men, one rather large and the other openly armed with a pistol. The round bodyguard had his t-shirt tucked accentuating his beer-bloated gut. The woman always dressed the same black mermaid dress despite the weather.

The dim, orange light of our brothel did not take away from the brightness of her eyes. They were crystals but the kind people would use to absorb evil energy. The woman’s name was Raquel and she boasted a peculiar appetite of degrading, violating and abusing android women. Government bodies made this practice, as well as brothels, legal when they deemed us androids as merely tools and accessories without…

Beaten, Broken, Left in Pieces

A day forever etched in his memory. The sun was shining and smiling so peacefully, brightening up the world. The summer’s breeze, so strangely cool today. It was a perfect day which turned out to be the darkest day ever, blacker than a night's sky not adorned by the moon and stars. The world was … Continue reading Beaten, Broken, Left in Pieces

Three Blind Mice

I’m walking to work, my fat self is already sweating and all the war-paint on my ugly face is dripping on my cheap shirt. I’m walking as fast as I can, not because I’m late, but because I’ve got to get away from the eyes. Always staring, always judging, always laughing. I’m itchy under my … Continue reading Three Blind Mice

Frozen Heart

There were tales that said her heart was taken And the irony and reality was that it left her cold instead of warm Freezing every approach from suitors Building ice castles to prevent the ones Making herself separate from the world of love And like a knight I journeyed to her castle Fought mythical creatures … Continue reading Frozen Heart
