Ilu was not the type who showed emotions easily, but today I saw a part of him I had never seen before, and I was so glad I did. He was such an amazing person, easily misunderstood, with a heart of gold, and jokes for days.
I apologized about everything, but he told me that my major flaw as a person was always felling that I was right no…[Read more]
Those words were pretty deep because for the first time, I felt like someone had just given me the root cause of my problems. He stopped at the gate of my house, and I was so grateful. When I asked him how much his money was, he said I should give him anything. Anything for such a long ride? I asked, and he said yes, that he felt so much better…[Read more]
“Joshua I am really sorry if you are upset about what I said earlier. Maybe I was wrong, but”
“Maybe???? Maybe?? Kenny can you hear yourself? You said something wrong, and it took you this long to apologize. Now you decide to apologize, and all you can say is maybe? Wow Kenny, Wow! Maybe that’s also why none of your friends has reached out to…[Read more]
Unlike the last time, he was driving today and I couldn’t help but ask if he had a license.
“Kenny, this is Nigeria. Sometimes you don’t really need a license. You just need a reasonable amount of money to grease the palms of the Road safety corps, the VIO agents, and the police officers. The army men rarely stop to ask for car parti…[Read more]
This joke was really dry because Joshua couldn’t even contribute some laughter to save me from the shame of my dry joke. He later managed to do a hahahaha, calling device response to a joke that I laughed about so hard my stomach already began to hurt.
“Kenny, you should walk me home today” Joshua said looking at my eyeballs. We had stopped on Lu…[Read more]
EPISODE SIX: SOME DAYS ARE LIKE THAT.
Being back to Abuja was okay, but I remembered that I had promised Joshua that I would reach out once I got back, and I was determined to do so. The problem was that I had forgotten his house address. Although his street is the longest in the area, locating his house merely by remembering the street was still…[Read more]
It was Thursday already, and by Saturday morning we will be headed for Abuja. I was praying for these two days to go by quickly because the excessive comfort and the “I’m at your service ma” was already beginning to irritate me.
It was a few minutes after two in the afternoon, so I decided to sleep a little before ordering some snacks. Just then,…[Read more]
I slept throughout the journey, and I only opened my eyes once to eat, and the second time when we were on a small strip of a bad road that led to the hotel.
Frankly speaking, I was impressed with the architectural design of the hotel. I never expected to see such a classy hotel in somewhere like Kaduna. Not like Kaduna was a local place or…[Read more]
My mum quietly told me to get our things from the trunk of his car, and leave them just beside the staircase to the front door of the house. Not a word was said till I had taken the suitcases to the where my mum said I should, and Mr. Donald got into his car and drove off. I felt like Sunday our gateman was already prepared because the gate was…[Read more]
Hi Nancy, Good morning” I said, shoving my head through the passenger’s seat, to the back seat so I could make an eye contact and see the young lady who chose to be deaf to my voice all this while, amidst seating like the Queen of shit Kingdom with her rumpled raggedy looking purple dress that I could see from the corner of my eye. I don’t know…[Read more]
EPISODE FIVE: THE DRAMA OF THE SABBATH DAY (LONELY)
Sunday morning came so quickly and I was so happy to breathe air that wasn’t the “ovenized” Abuja air.
My mum already told me that I would be meeting someone new and important to her today, so I had to be on my best behavior.
Mr. Donald arrived at our house as early as seven that morni…[Read more]
