The Morning Before

The atmosphere was charged with the disco lights bouncing off the walls of the largely spaced room in various colors while the air stood, stifled with alcohol, cigarette, sturdy brands of perfumes, and body sprays. And then, there were others;  sweats, body odors… We were like animals and the club was our jungle. I took the ice … Continue reading The Morning Before

The wedding scandal

Silence reigned. The clock struck eleven o’clock. A child dropped a spoon, the sound reverberating throughout the cathedral. Seun stared wide-eyed at the man walking down the aisle towards the altar.

Her eyes were locked with mine, every muscle of her fair face twitching with … Continue reading The Dream and the Dead
