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…

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…
