“It’s not her.” I whispered. I heaved a huge sigh of relief. “What do you mean, sir?” The nurse asked. “There’s been a mistake. This is not the Florence we know.” Femi said, barely supressing the excitement in his voice. The nurse stared at us, confused. “Let’s get outta here.” I suggested. And get out … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode Finale.
I couldn’t believe my ears. Flores couldn’t be dead. Not young, bubbling Flores, the woman I had befriended for eight years. It was a hard fact to swallow. The doctor was still rambling on about the procedure for releasing the body, I blocked his words out. Without meaning to, I found myself walking away. I … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode 34
I rushed back to Abuja immediately. My vacation was suspended automatically. I went back to Abuja with mixed feelings; first I was elated that Flores had called off the wedding but I was worried that she had gone MIA. Where on earth could she be? Femi downloaded the whole gist for me. Three days before … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode 33
If I was angry, she was angrier. She glared at me defiantly; then turned to Oscar. “He thinks he’s in love with me. I doubt he is.” She said. Oscar looked at both of us and knew better than to say anything. “I think you both need to talk this out. I’m outta here.” He … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode 32
I couldn’t believe my ears. I had been with Flores earlier that week and she had mentioned nothing about a pregnancy. “How did you know that?” I asked, wishing that he was joking. “I ran into Fred the other day and he told me. That’s why they have to speed up the wedding plans.” Femi … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode 31
I was stunned. “When did that happen?” I asked. “After I kissed you or before?” I couldn’t keep thee sarcasm out of my voice. “Don’t you dare talk to me that way, Jake. Do you think my life is hinged on one kiss shared in the heat of the moment? You seem to forget that … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode 30
This kiss was different from all others. It was gentle and sweet. It felt right. It was like the kiss I had given her while she was still in a coma, only that this one was reciprocated by her. It didn’t last long, I think we realised ourselves and stopped. Still, we clung to each … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right-Episode 29
It was like the legendary kids’ story of sleeping beauty. Just like that; Flores regained consciousness. Thank goodness she didn’t mention anything about the kiss, hopefully…she didn’t remember because I would have been too embarrassed to explain why I did it. She recovered quickly, I think because she had lots of loved ones around her. … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right – Episode 28
I almost laughed. Seriously? This guy had the nerve to walk into my hospital room and ask that I come to an agreement about a woman who had almost killed my friend and me…? It sounded ridiculous to me. “I don’t have anything to discuss with you.” I said, bluntly. I was in no mood … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode 27

This had gone too far. I jumped into my car and sped to our family house. I was in the mood to kill someone, precisely someone named Sonia. I wondered how I would handle the situation. What had she told my mum? My mum had been giving me hints that I needed to settle down … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode 24
In five minutes we were dressed and seated in Femi’s car. The drive to the hospital was charged with tension. I could tell that worry was killing Oscar. There was nothing we could do to ease his pain. When we arrived at the hospital, Oscar jumped out of the car and ran in, leaving the … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right-Episode 23
We stood facing each other; I could see the challenge in her eyes. How on earth did I manage to get myself involved with such women? I wondered. “Get out, Jake” She said in a quieter tone. “You have no right to judge me.” I looked at her wistfully, I no longer saw the beautiful … Continue reading Lookout For Miss Right- Episode 22
Standing in the doorway like a bull getting ready to fight was someone I had come to fear more than the devil himself. Sonia. Barbs and I scrambled to our feet, half-naked. I was clad in my boxers, Barbs in her bra and panties, clutching the bed sheet. “What is going on here?” Sonia bellowed … Continue reading Lookout for Miss Right- Episode 21
