PLEASE WAKE ME UP!!! (TTRWT) - By RUTH C.B.N. (Ruthylicious)

It's been 4months after I literally Unshackled  myself from the brink of death.
4months after I ended that bloody courtship to the most vicious beast on earth who both used, misused & abused me.
4months after I ran away from an entire 5yrs of Emotional & Physical Torment at the hands of One man. 
4months after & am still rebuilding the tiers of My Self Respect, Dignity & Esteem that he crushed.
Phew, Thank U God for this PURE air of Life!

Then I met him, Yes HIM, He was the WHOLE package, as Handsome as they come & chocolate skinned too. (Permit a Girl to be vain pls).
Above 6ft ... check.
Perfect dentition ... check.
Dimples/Excellent smile ... check.
6Packs ... check.
Intelligent ... check.
Hardworking ... check.
6 figures... check.
Generous... DOUBLE check!
Very Honest & above all SUPER God-fearing. U can call him (Over Spiritual) if u please. LOL

He wasn't the Ying to my Yang.
He wasn't my Knight in shining armour.
He wasn't the 6 to my 5.
He wasn't My Mr Right or Perfect neither is he The One/Great Guy, Oh yeah? U get it Now?


Well, he's the typpa man who NEVER swears, No obscene jokes, he calls me EVERY night for prayers, sends me scripture quotations to meditate on daily. I know what U think..... Bo-ringgggg.

No Dearies, he gives me a tip of the iceberg into his world of naughtiness once in a while which will be fully unleashed on my deserving self after we say "I DO", very kinky stuffs yeah.

After just a month of dating him, I knew he is My 1st Love, I knew I couldn't have dated any man except him, He took AWAY my world of Fear, Emptiness, Sadness, Worthlessness, Anxiety, Depression & loneliness....

I Suddenly became this Giggly bouncing baby girl, My Happiness was Surreal, My Joy emits golden rays!!!

Oh LOVE!!! Where art thou been ALL My life?
I occasionally look to the heavens & whisper "Thank U God"!
This man makes me want to buy a private jet to say Thank U to all my Ex bfs & flings for letting me Go!
He's Mi Papichulo, Mi Vida, Mi Cielo *Love can make U speak languages U don't even understand *

6months Into this 7th Haven of mine, The UNEXPECTED happens!!! OMG!!!

    2. Correct asshole.... ride on gurl

  6. What does TTRWT mean?

    1. Thelma Thinks Readers Write Too. Please check the Announcement Announcement Announcement post of some days ago, the details are there. I'm waiting for your own TTRWT post too.

  7. Boring.
    Might have been interesting if it hadn't been cut short and if there wasn't an attempt to make it into some sort of poetry.

    1. The attempt was a very good one, and the "poetry" is actually making most readers yearn for more. So...

    2. In our different opinions, Mr Memphis, so....

    3. Can you pls write yours this anon

  8. TTRWT means Thelma Thinks Readers Write too.

    Anon 8:52 Lovely comment. Keep it up!!!


    1. Ruth please hurry up and send Part 2, I can hardly wait!

    2. You're a brilliant writer darling, I'm hanging on to the edge of my seat in anticipation of part 2( this could also be due to the bad road in my area cause in in transit) Lol.

  9. Nice work ruth. Can't wait for the concluding part!!! Go girl!!!

  10. Awwwww! Well, if HE is the "le boo" I've read you repeatedly mention then I'm so happy for you, Ruth!
    Its really a breath of fresh air to be with someone who you feel all these with after having felt the direct opposite for so long!
    Again, happy for you and I pray your expectations aren't cut short. :)

  11. Yayyyy!!! This one My Madam has spoken, I MUST send Part 2 ASAP oh... (It's also the concluding part).

    This POST is a medium to keep healing My Heart...

  12. Thanks a lot Memphis & Remi.
    Dido, the Part 2 will tell if it's all Rosy.

  13. Wait,after 5 years and 2months engagement,YOU realised he wasn't the one? O.o

    1. Sasha the analyst. I love that you always question things and never take things at face value. I want my daughters to think like you. Lol.

    2. Lols...and start having grey hair too?

  14. Hmm...ok,it seems Le boo and 5yrs-guy are different people!

    1. My question is 'If the 5yrs guy ended in May then when dis le boo happen?

    2. Question for the elders.

  15. LOL, Sasha have come oh!!!
    Shit happens Hon. Some of Us are hopeless lovers *speaking for myself*

  16. A good writer captures a reader in the 1st paragraph, reading this piece kept me wondering what comes next everytime I get close to the end of each sentence... So to satisfy my curiosity I had to get to the end of it... The guys description was impeccable ; I would say this guy [ that's if he left] would reconsider coming back if he sees this.... well then this not my story... waiting for the concluding part... Don't take too long..

  17. Am not a good writer but I've read a few good works. No need to mention being vain. Otherwise, excellent work. I look forward to your path 2.
    Thumbs up. Go! Ruthy.

  18. I have Twerked Until My waist is broken.
    Ur comments are giving me more Closure!!!
    Thanks for this opportunity T.

  19. Ruthy I'm impatiently waiting.

  20. #Constructivecriticismpleasedonothavemyhead! This is a wonderful story which you have somehow muddled up! I dnt knw if its ur choice of words or d presentation.... You got us mixing d 5 years guy wit dis hot new dude!... Not sure if that is deliberate... I knw writing isn't easy but you need to strive 2wards clarity! The mind is always faster than the mouth/hand writing it! Since its all in ur head.... You get it but we don't as we aren't in ur head! Good try though! The 2nd part should be better! Much love!

    1. I totally agree, the whole ish got me confused and didn't make sense to me.....u say "its been 4 months....since u ended the 5yr relationship..." And yet u say u ended ur 5yr relationship only lastmonth in May. The whole thing I think ws meddled up in an attempt to sound poetic. Anyhoo, just my opinion Nne.

  21. Thanks a lot Anon 10:28
    I actually LOVE ur comment. But I assure U the clarity will come in the Part 2 - the final part.

  22. Anon 1:09, ur confused state is what happens when U Marry the writer to the material

    Must this story be about Me? LOL

    1. Lols...Nne,don't even start that one o.."Not bout u bawo"? You are the only Le Boo we know on this blog and remember u did say u wld reveal his name soon! *winks*

    2. I know his name.

  23. This comment has been removed by the author.

  24. I knew this was all too good to be true. When u come from Nigeria and you have been through the highs and lows of life, meeting a man that is so damn near perfect makes you ask what's really the problem? Aside from that, I think your story is a page turner. Really interesting and well told.

  25. Cant wait 4 part 2....fingers crossed**

  26. ruth be warned ooo no dey put me on suspense jo.....

  27. This is nice ruthy,waiting for the part 2

  28. Despite all the question marks, I still think you did a good job Ruthy.....thumbs up!!!

    Waiting for Part 2.

  29. Thanks a bunch Mariam & Tiwa.
    All questions will be answered in part 2 I promise.

  30. This story is "dope". I'm really impressed at the conclusion. A good way to keep your readers glued to your blog. Surely I'm gonna come back for the untold part, hope its not gonna end the "nollywood" way.

  31. LOL. Anon, I know am a Nigerian but Not a typical one. It's not nollywood jooor.
    Thanks for the compliment.

  32. Sorry for commenting late. Just read this post...

    Am calling you now babe... kudos.

  33. 2 words... Makes sense! Saving the 3rd and last word for the part 2.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

One More Post...


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
