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 2- Men are Trash

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…

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.”…

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 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….

Nkani – Pick Your Poison (Chapter 2)

Plumber? I can’t get that word off my mind. I am a mad black woman. You wouldn’t guess by looking that I am an angry woman because I look calm; yet, beneath my calm beautiful demeanor is a dangerous not to be played with woman. I hate the fact that people assume once you have…

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…

The Heart Break Chronicles – Secrets And Lies 3

There is a reason why the man married me. Must be because I make his world look ridiculously easy to love. I am wife to Chuma and mother to Kenya, Kevin and Kambole. I am the woman behind the successful man. I am the woman behind the happy children. I am the woman behind the…
