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 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?…

Hello. Hi. Nkani is back. Apologies for taking so long to post. School had me busy. I hope you enjoy Chapter 2. Kisses. 9th January 2016 “Men are trash.” I say aloud. “I don’t care how you feel about it but men are trash. Pure trash.” I look at the ladies around the table and…

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…

Dear Black Men: Strike Two

The Rackster this one is for you. You wrote this with me and super awesomeness words we created. Thank you. “You two look so amazing together.” One of the women says. She offers me a smile, exposing her chipped front tooth. “I saw a picture of the two of you and it was absolutely adorable.”…

Dear Black Men 

The Rackster (follow blog here) helped make this story alive. Much love. We hope you enjoy it. I can’t sleep. I want to but I won’t. I can’t. What am I supposed to do? I want to cry? Maybe if I do my anger will be no more. Maybe I will see reason. Maybe 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 13)

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 6)

Plumber: I’ve had it. You keep ignoring me. This is too much. We planned this didn’t we? Come on. Me: I’m busy. For crying out loud,  I’m with her. What if she asks why I’m on my phone and with who! Calm down. What if she finds out. What if she knows? I left my…

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 Single Chronicles: The Baby Daddy 

​ “You know what, I don’t care what you do. Go. I have things to do.” Her words are still on my mind. Was it really necessary that we argue? She added I should consider us over. What a really horrible day, considering it’s my birthday and I’m supposed to have an awesome day, today…

The Single Chronicles : The Knight

I hate to see her cry. It hurts to see her cry. Why? Because I am in love with her. Temwani is my favourite person in the world. Okay in Lusaka. One of my closest friends at UNZA. Her laugh infects my sad existence of a life, so she’s the light in my dark world….
