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…

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…

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 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 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…
