Nkani: All That Glitters 7 – It’s the Simple Things

My phone rings and I sigh in irritation. How many times does one have to call before they realise I’m not available? Gosh. This is nonsense. The loud tone goes on. Why can’t I get what I want? Nothing is going right today. It’s one thing after another. I just want out of the day…

Nkani: All That Glitters 6- Everything in Plain Sight

Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Why the hell did I wear heels in the first place? Why do employers always want women to wear heels. These things hurt. Ankles strained from awkward angles of the back of my foot to my toes. Bad enough we can barely run in them. If a war starts the…

Ravings of a Single Woman- 1.Welcome to my Life

31st December 2016 Lusaka. Tick tock… Eighteen-thirty. It’s the weekend that it hits me. I’m alone again. When work is no longer in front of me to keep me busy from noticing the word that lurks in the corner of every room I walk into. Alone. Even the word sounds lonely. What the hell happened…

Nkani – Pick Your Poison (Chapter 19)

Kissing is taking off clothes? What the hell is Samantha talking about? Did he sleep with her? Is that why she is here? To rub the act in my face. To show she still controls him? What the hell. I feel my hands start to shake. Shit. I don’t need my anger ruining things right…

Nkan – Pick Your Poison (Chapter 17)

I open my eyes and yawn. I feel so tired. I stretch and groan. My eyes hurt. Swollen I guess. My head hurts even more. After all the crying I did last night, I’m not surprised I feel sick today. No matter how I feel, I need to bath, clean up, make breakfast and catch…

Nkani: Pick Your Poison (Chapter 16)

Noah: Hey Babe. Hope you’re good. Will be home a bit late. Heading to O’Hagans with the guys. Love you. I put the mutiko down and look at the clock on the kitchen wall behind me. It reads nineteen twenty. Really Noah. Why didn’t he tell me this earlier? He knew he was going to…

Nkani – Pick Your Poison (Chapter 15)

Count on the ladies to be late. Okay not all of them. I’m with my sister Muzinga at Meraki at our table already enjoying a cup of hot coffee in my case while Muzinga enjoys a cup of hot chocolate. I feel both tired and refreshed. I woke up an hour ago or so but…

Nkani: Pick Your Poison (Chapter 14)

There are times when life catches up with you and you think of ways to get through it with the least amount of collateral damage. This is not one of those moments. I do not know what to do or say at this moment. Tawanda’s hand is still on my neck touching the tender spot….

Nkani- Pick Your Poison (Chapter 13)

I would love to thank @nannah05, @Lady_Lynn90, @maaaapps and @finn_lucy for the photo heels. So grateful for your art. Awesomeness. Kisses.  I wish I had slept. I wish I had not tossed and turned in bed last night thinking. I wish I had not given into my memories and stayed in them all night because now I’m a tired mother who…

Nkani- Pick Your Poison (Chapter 5)

“Ge-Mi-Ma.” She says when I am within ear shot of them. Who the hell says my name in it’s syllables. Only she would do that. Make me feel like a kid learning how to pronounce my own name for the first time. Samantha Mwape is the very definition of the word beautiful. Her smooth long…

Nkani – Pick Your Poison (Chapter 3)

“Monde. Why are you crying?” He asks worried. Why am I crying? Plumber? What if I tell him and he denies it. What if he says I am being paranoid after all, I have been acting weird for the past few days. “Monde. Baby. Talk to me. Is it work? Pressure.” I shake my head….

The Heart Break Chronicles – Best Friends Forever

“You are jealous of my relationship. That’s it. You want him all to yourself.” Oh Boy. This is not going as expected.  Shit. Where did I go wrong? What do I do now? What is about women and relationships that makes them lose control? I swear we dig our own graves, and in special circumstances…

The Single Chronicles: The Best Friend

   My brain is sending signals but my body won’t listen. Maybe if I use my heart I could still salvage the situation. Don’t they say once the heart makes a decision it’s final? But the stupid organ is in this for the result. Abort mission.  Abort mission. But my body is numb. Stuck on…
