Misadventure by Night

It was a few minutes short of midnight at the bus stop on the outskirts of town. The late night vendors sat hunched over their wares, their flickering candles and dim bulbs doing little to relieve the brooding darkness. People quickly disembarked from the slowing trickle of buses arriving, and they hurried away to the safety of their houses before the wickednesses of the night came out to stalk the town.

He hung back in the shadows of a nearby street, smirking as he watched the people disappear into the darkness. Every now and then, he would peer out from the darkness, as though scanning the stop for someone. After a while, his eyes lit up. There she was, young, petite and well dressed, scurrying away like the rest of them. He emerged from the shadows and began to trail her.

As he followed her at a discreet distance, he could see that she was headed for a sparsely developed part of the suburb where there were still lots of undeveloped and uncompleted buildings. He licked his lips and began to perspire with anticipation. This was good, he thought to himself as he trod silently after her. After a while, he began to lengthen his stride so that the distance between them began to shrink. As he got closer, he began to tread more heavily, deliberately advertising his presence so that soon enough, she looked round. Before she could run, he seized her and held her tight with one arm. A knife flashed in his other hand, close to her throat.

“Now listen!” he whispered sharply. “Just do as I say, you hear? If you co-operate, I will let you go when I am done. But if you try any nonsense…” He brought the knife just a little bit closer in a threatening gesture.

She looked at him and smiled.  “Ah-ah! No need for all the drama. What is it? Is it sex that you want? Eh, just say so now so that we can get started. After all, sex is something that both men and women enjoy, not so?”

He was taken aback. Where was the fear, the respect? Didn’t she know that he could cause her life to leak away with one sharp slash? He tightened his grip on her, and growled in anger, “Shut up! Do you know who you are dealing with here? If you say any more nonsense, I will just kill you and dump you in a rubbish tip!”

She looked at him, still smiling. “Ah, sorry o! Please don’t be annoyed. See, all this week, I’ve been feeling ‘one kind’… like I need a man to do me well well. But I can’t just walk up to the first man and ask him… he will just think I’m mad. So maybe God has heard my prayers by sending you to me. When you grabbed me like that, I was thinking that it was because you were frustrated that you hadn’t had sex for a while. I was thinking ‘Ah, this is a man who is ready for action!’ I hope I’m not wrong o!”

Now he was confused. Part of him said that this was a trick, something fishy was up. Another part of him said that here was someone who was different from the other women, someone who didn’t ridicule him and didn’t make him feel small, someone who actually wanted him. Yet another part of him said that it was stiff and ready for action, and didn’t have time for these internal debates, and could he kindly attend to the lady who was now smiling invitigly at him?

“OK”, he said gruffly, relaxing his grip. “Remove your skirt and pants. But I’m watching you – don’t try running away!’

She acquiesced, slipping quickly out of both items. Then she turned and said, “Oya, you do. Let us see your kini.”

He hesitated, then he unzipped his trousers and stepped out of them. She oohed at his erect penis.

“Oh, wow! That is something! Wait o, I just have to suck you down there.” And before he could protest, she had knelt down and he began to experience an intense, personal pleasure. He closed his eyes as he savoured the feeling. Oh, that was good. Ah, this woman really knew what she was doing. Tonight was going to be gooood. Ahhh…


The intense pleasure had been abruptly truncated and replaced by a searing, excruciating pain. He howled in agony and slumped to the ground as he clamped his hands over his crotch. Shock and fear quickly took over as he discovered the the warm wetness around his mutilated genitals. A few yards away, she stood looking at him, her earlier smiles replaced with a look of utter contempt. As she looked, she chewed away energetically, with blood dribbling down her chin. After several seconds, she spat out the remains of his penis and testicles into the dust.

He stared at the mangled flesh and began to whimper. “Yeeh… I am dead… you have finished me today…”

“Shut up! Useless man. You thought that I would just lie down and allow you to rape me just like that, eh?”

He looked up at her again. The pain was becoming even more intense, and his mind was beginning to fog over from the loss of blood.

“I… I don’t know why… why I followed you tonight,” he whispered. “It must have been the… the work of the devil.”

“Then consider today your day of deliverance, now that you are freed from the evil spirit in your penis that used to control you.”

He watched her turn and walk away. Then his vision began to dim, fingers of darkness reached out to draw him in, and he felt himself slipping, slipping into a black void…

  1. Eeww; that was GROSS!!! “…she chewed away energetically, with blood dribbling down her chin. After several seconds, she spat out the remains of his penis and testicles into the dust.” U know, there’s a word for that er CANNIBALISM. Tola, this borderline horrible and to think i just finished chewing ‘energetically’ on food. Not good Tola; so not good!

    Literary wise; its a good read! Well done. Did think something was up when she smiled. hehehe. Walahi, it is a real misadventure.

  2. I guessed her intent early on but the way you described her action was so much grosser than i envisaged. Well done, Tola. More UGH to your elbow, lol.

  3. Shit!..okay I didnt mean to say that but that had to jump out of my mouth.
    What on earth is that lady’s teeth made of? Tola if you intended to write a piece of ‘shock fiction’ I will say you succeeded ’cause I’m still trying to get the nasty image of a chewed penis out of my mind!

    And I like the last convo in your ending –

    “I… I don’t know why… why I followed you tonight,” he whispered. “It must have been the… the work of the devil.”

    “Then consider today your day of deliverance, now that you are freed from the evil spirit in your penis that used to control you.”

    That was maad funny!

  4. LOL! Sissies, the lot of you.

    @Lade, @Afronuts,
    Honestly, I don’t see the big deal. A penis is just a mass of flesh.

    @Abby, I disagree. Cannibalism is when you eat the flesh; in this case, she spat out the penis, remember?

    Fortunately for you all, now that I’ve got the gory out of my system, I shall return to a much more sanitised topic in my next story. :)

    1. Yeah, fortunately for the lot of us.

      Er, seems you are forgetting the “chewed energetically” part. What do call that?

      1. OK o @Abby, looks like we disagree on this. No problem – let’s leave the matter for discussion another day.

    2. LMAO! Did you just call that creature with a life of its own a ‘mass of flesh’?
      Haba! Many people exist becuz of that appendage oh!

    ewwwwwwww…the picture in my mind is not pretty at all…just shows how good a writer u are, i still shuddering…mass of flesh indeed…thou he did deserve it…
    funny thing…a friend of mine once said that would be her action if she was ever to be raped, i do wonder how many women would have the liver to carry out the deed…

  6. oh heavens. what on earth? i screamed when i got to the chewing part. eeewwwww

    good writing tho.

  7. Eeeew! The idiot man should have known something was up…but i guess thats how it gets when the big guy down below takes over and starts doing the thinking.

    Wait o…she ‘chewed energetically’ on it.

    I have to say again – eeeeeeeeeeew!

  8. Eeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! So gross, so gross so utterly GROSS!!! But wonderful too! I knew he had met his match when she smiled at him. I wish every rapist could meet similar fates. Tola I am a fan- a reluctant and totally grossed-out fan!

    1. lol but you get the picture

  9. yuccccccccccccccccccckkkk! i actually had to squeeze the hand of my colleague when i got to that part of the story. that’s sooooo gross mehn. i even tot maybe the babe had HIV or something and wanted to infect the girl that’s why she was so willing, my mind did not go to this for a second! yuuuuccckkkk!!!!

    good writing. enjoyed reading. it was spellbinding in it’s own “way”…lol

  10. gory? certainly! but funny and interesting nonetheless, I knew that was her intent, guess he was thinking with his eventually chewed off member (ouch!) rather than his brain!..Well done jo!

  11. eyyyyyyyyyyyy! Cannibalistic, i like the variance from the normal, keep it up!

  12. I highly recommend this work. The rapist ended up being raped one. What a creatively unexpected climax! *winks* WELLest done Tola!

  13. Have mercy..lol. I sort of saw it coming but didnt know it would be that gory..chewing the stuff and all. so where does disease come in for her. it’s one thing to bite it off but chewing it and blood dribbling down her mouth.. nice story btw

    1. @Stelzz, thanks for the compliment. :)

      Everyone seems to be so worked up by this ‘chewing’ thing… as to whether the woman has a ‘disease’, let’s just say that it’s a case of a bad man jamming a badder woman.

  14. Great story definitely. Did it provoke a very visceral reaction? Definitely!!

    1. Thanks for the compliment, @guywriterer.

  15. firstly …grossssss
    secondly….it’s literally impossible to bite of the penis and scrotum. penis? yes, penis+scrotum? nah!
    thirdly… u describe well. great piece.

  16. Hmmmm…nice one here Tola, nice one…but eeeeewwwwww!

    I like the the way you told the this story. Very vivid and fluid.

    Keep improving your art!

  17. omg, this is good
