Diary of a Rogue Priest: How I Killed the Bishop

I can feel it in my nerves. Every part of my body is yelling ‘Liar! Liar.’ I can feel that Shiri has known about me. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have behaved that way last week. And she wouldn’t have switched off her phone on me. I am hoping she calls me, just but to tell me … Continue reading Diary of a Rogue Priest: How I Killed the Bishop

Craving Hope (XI)

“Miss Gina?” Gabrielle said, puzzled, but Ike was ahead of her. “You remember this lady?” Ike asked the Chinese woman sharply, silencing Gabrielle with a gesture. She nodded. “Yes, Miss Gina, she is live upstairs.” Her English was still a lot shaken up. She narrowed her eyes at Gabrielle, and beamed a smile. “You now … Continue reading Craving Hope (XI)

Craving Hope (IX)

Ike sat back down. “Chikwado had twins; two girls, identical.” “Two children?” “Gabrielle and another. Two little girls exactly alike. Rosie took Gabrielle and the other…” “Gabrielle has an identical twin.” Ike whispered. “Yes.” “Did anyone else know this?” “No.” Mrs Aku closed her eyes and shook her head. “Nobody knew there was a second … Continue reading Craving Hope (IX)

Gabrielle heard about Ike’s leave of absence from her new lawyer, Obiekwe.

Craving Hope (VII)

Ike switched off the computer and rolled his chair back from the desk. He glanced at the clock and realized that the room was almost empty; it was nearing midnight. He had been reading for six hours, and now knew more about the Rosenfeld murder investigation than he had ever dreamed possible. Newspapers articles had … Continue reading Craving Hope (VII)

Craving Hope (VI)

Ike came in from a game of basketball and headed straight for the refrigerator, pulled out a can of beer and downed a long drink. The exercise hadn’t done its job, it hadn’t eradicated his visit to the Rosenfeld house from his mind. It wasn’t his thing to get associated with murder suspects, but then, … Continue reading Craving Hope (VI)

Craving Hope (V)

A middle aged woman with a lively expression answered the door at the Rosenfeld house. “Detective Udeh, New Haven police.” He said, flashing his badge. “Is Mrs. Rosenfeld in?” “She’s in the living room,” the woman said uncertainly. “Please tell her I’m here. I’ll wait.” The woman went in and came out in seconds. “Mrs. … Continue reading Craving Hope (V)

Craving Hope (III)

Gabrielle Rosenfeld was being taken to a holding room as Ubaka and Ike completed the arrest report. Reporters screamed questions from the entrance door, and flashlights went off like fireworks in the dark as she made her way through the information mongers. The station sergeant shut the connecting doors after she had moved on, cutting … Continue reading Craving Hope (III)

Cold hands

  The one-sided smile on his face disappeared as he sneezed and sputtered a generous amount of phlegm. Then it returned, twice as cold. The turn-out had been massive, with women in golden heels, bust-revealing attires, head gears of varying radii, and men in brightly colored agbadas and babarigas. The highlife music blaring from the … Continue reading Cold hands
