I’ve waited so long for this day. For today when I will listen to you g-rh-h-on…” BOOM! A bullet plunged into my rib cage. Then I heard the gunshot. Bullets must travel at the speed of light. My chest burned. I reached for my pistol from under the pillow, clutched my chest with the other…

Rita gyrated her hips as she finished off the red cup of liquor in her hand. This was, hands down, the best house party she had ever attended!! And she had been to a lot. The music was on point, the drinks were over flowing, and the guys were sooooo hot!! She was glad she…

The nondescript building sat quietly by the road. No signposts to indicate what went on in there. It was just a regular office building. Inside, it was just another day at the office.Barney tinkered with a few buttons before the generator finally complied, humming into life. In the office, the air conditioners stirred, cool air…

When Leicester City took the decision to relieve Claudio Ranieri of his duties last month, a number of people – from fans to pundits and journalists – were besides themselves in anger, wondering how a man who smashed 5000/1 odds en route to achieving English football’s most remarkable triumph was turfed out at the first…

It was just like any other day to Chris. A reluctant jump out of bed at 6.00am, a sleepy mumble of prayers, 15 minutes laboured workout (it was more gasping than work), the shower and then, the start of a nerve racking day in school. The back of the class, that was his position. Alone…

I’ve always wondered what all the fuss was about. Aunty Nana always said to confront that which you feared the most and I did just that. It’s been the one thing keeping me going, making me stronger. If I could make myself feel the things which I feared another would do to me then I…

Many students across the country have met their deaths inconveniently. And the schools are gradually turning to a killing field. They have either died as a result of cult related matters, shot by the Police, flogged to death or through something menacing. A number of the killings take place in broad day light, while others…

The crickets resumed their noisy business as Chidera padded as quietly as he could down the hallway, using the semi-darkness and the chirping as a mask. Halfway through the hall, he came to an abrupt stop at a classroom door and placed his palms against the cold metal.

Chidera walked up to the girl seated at the furthest desk from the door in the library, and smiled.

Nwando had never liked white people. Even as a sex worker or runs girl, or hustler, whatever they wanted to call her, she had little patience for white people and steered clear of them.
