The dark side of the moon.

  Maryanne was furious. Her baby was crying, and the house adjacent to hers was booming their TV like they were in a concert. Her baby said that her mum had just slapped her and thrown her on the ground simply because she asked for the drumstick. She took her leso and tied it around…

Winner to Woman

Dear Dan’s wife, I hope the title fits well since it seems you’ve forgotten your name. Thank you for your email which I received. You sure can throw yourself a pity party. How dare you come off to me like that. For years on end you had him and you chose to ignore him throughout….

Woman to Woman

Dear Kayla, I know, this is strange, it caught you off guard. You were not expecting to hear from the wife of the man you’re sleeping with any time soon. After all, you’ve been careful haven’t you? You’ve been protecting my husband’s image from the children and that’s why you had to keep it on…

Bye Bye Fridays

The house was settled, in a dull way. It was full, but most of the patrons chose to remain silent. Mama was by the long sofa, with aunty Mary by her side comforting her. She was wailing softly, shifting back and forth on the sofa. It had been two weeks already and every time we…

Babes and Babies

The day she lost it all.

Lots of commotion could be heard in the house as George drove into the compound. He wondered what the fuss was about. He’d received a phone call from Amina, his girlfriend, asking him to pass by quick. From her voice, he couldn’t tell whether she was happy no sad. But from the laughter in the…

Damn you

Toby stood next to her in the chill bar. He was telling a joke and she was laughing. He still couldn’t figure out what had changed her mind this time round. This had been the first time she had said yes in eight rounds. He had gone from the serious, to the casual, to the…

Death.

Julie had just tucked the kids into bed and was cleaning up the dishes. It was quiet. The kind of quiet that eats you up. Nothing but the clanging of the dishes could be heard. She scrubbed them with anger, as if they felt the pain she did. She felt a tear fall from her…

Innocence.

They say that madness comes with a price, that a part, a systems of ones being has to succumb, to accept the madness, and let it engulf them For madness to take it’s full form, one must think over and over and over again about it until the madness becomes the person. That is what…

Home.

The sitting room was exactly as he had left it. A huge cupboard to his left, hiding the utensils mother had bought from her chama, with the TV, of course, covered with a clothing covering it. He sighed. He had spent most of his childhood seated in front of that screen, watching Sonic and Rainbow…

Fears.

Fear. A feeling aroused by impending danger, pain or distress. Fear reeks straight into the core, causing the heart beat faster, the mind, inevitably going numb, and distress…oh what a feeling, what a rush! Amy could feel it. She could feel the fear create horrible scenarios in her head, she could see herself doing things,…

Closets.

Fiona sat on the couch with a glass of wine in hand staring at her huge flat screen. Her house was big, and from the decor in the room, it was evident she was a very wealthy woman. Photos of her family hung throughout various spots in the room; her son’s first foot ball game,…
