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…

Nkani: All That Glitters 3- Heart Breaking, Soul Searching

Tick tock… Tick tock. It’s hours later when it hits me. Mutale would have come by to visit me right at this time on a Saturday. I look at the wall clock watching the time tick away. Eighteen forty-five. Why am I looking at this clock counting seconds? Eighteen forty-six. What if he shows up?…

Nkani: All That Glitters : The Beginning- Death meet Everyone

March 2016 If I told you life starts when you die, would you choose to die? Would you choose to not exist? I would choose this. The very life I’ve had so far. It’s been interesting; but we never plan ahead for the things we should have taken into account like how meeting one person…

The Heart Break Chronicles: Mr Friends

This is for those who love involving themselves in people’s drama. Just for you.   “She looks beautiful. I should go and say hello.” I say. “I didn’t think she would make it.” “Ba guy. Are you kidding me? The girl is an idiot. Not worth it.” Oliver asks. “Can we please calm down.” I…

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 9)

Many thanks to @GracaOfDeus for the picture. Pure awesomeness. I hope you all enjoy the story. Maybe I should have said no. Not maybe. I should have said no. Period. I am weak. I’m saying this because I know I am weak. He says one word and I fall at his feet, my legs turn…

Nkani- Pick Your Poison (Chapter 1)

Monde Something is brewing in the air and it’s not tea. I can sense it. A change is coming. Something that will change the way I see life. I have a secret. I have to share it. Or maybe I am being paranoid again. The nightmares of death I’ve been having the past three nights…
