Wolves In Sheep's Clothing pt 1 (TTRWT)- By Momoh Adeola




As he drew the curtains together, I had the notion something was wrong. He closed the windows, switched on the air-conditioner and sat beside me. He connected his phone to the speaker and started with the jam of life. It was “Sars on the beat” with Wizkid, there was no standing still to the song. I started to nod and shake my head until I recalled what actually took me there and tried to be as calm as possible. He didn’t pay much attention to me, he just got “busy” with keeping the house in order. This was a guy who was supposed to take only a few minutes of my time to get the “car keys”; he went from only picking the car keys, to “warming up snacks” in the microwave. He then ventured into what seemed like the kitchen, came out with his half-filled bottle of beer and gulped it, not forgetting to undo his well buttoned down shirt while he left the empty bottle on the stool adjacent to me. I finally voiced out, enough of the good girl façade. I reminded him of how we needed to be in a hurry if we were still travelling together because I couldn’t imagine getting to Warri late. He smiled, not saying a word and then went over to where his phone was to increase the volume of the song playing.


Exactly a week ago, I took the public transport going from Cele express to Festac. It was one of mum’s errands to my aunts; but she had insisted she wasn’t giving me a cab fare, claiming I was getting too spoilt already. My puerility almost got the best of me, but bearing in mind that my aunt was definitely going to tip me; I got into my black high-waist jeans and a blue polo and took off.

It was the usual Lagos traffic; horns blaring… tyres screeching… and of course, hawkers advertising at the peak of their voices competing with the conductors that already had the perfect crooked voice. I was angry and nauseated; it was probably as a result of the patience I naturally lacked that I hated to take public transports. I would have chosen a keke NAPEP over the bus a thousand times over though, because of their very small size and manipulative structure. I however would have chosen a motorcycle over the keke NAPEP a zillion times over; those ones were naturally ignorant of the “traffic light”. I cursed the government under my breath as I sighed deeply, for eradicating the use of motorcycles; even though I knew it was for the best. Then, I readjusted to another very uncomfortable position; and this was where I noticed Temisan (as he later introduced himself). He handed me my Nokia torch-light phone that had mistakenly fallen off my laps while I was silently cursing. We got talking afterwards, trying to know each other better. The journey became less boring because he was fun to gist with, and before alighting, we exchanged numbers (giving out numbers to strangers was not my forte; he just appeared nice).

As I sat in Temisan’s sitting room imagining every possible occurrence, I remembered two of my friends knew I was with him (I had told them about him during the week while he persuaded me to visit) and so I relaxed a bit more into the chair. Just as I did, I saw something that looked like a star in the dark. It was accompanied by the sharpest pain ever; a pain I was fast to figure was a resounding slap. It immediately alerted my tear gland, producing a form of tears that very quickly gathered in my eyes. I tried to fight it back, leaving my eyelids tightly closed for a few seconds. It hurt so badly, I struggled to regain consciousness; and standing above me, ready to give me a second slap was Temisan, his empty beer bottle carefully placed in his other hand as if he was ready to also hit me. I was too shocked to speak, his demeanour had totally changed. This was not the cute, tall Temisan I met in the bus the previous Friday; it definitely also wasn’t the Temisan that whined me while he sought for my number. It couldn’t have been the sweet-voiced Temisan who spoke to my friends on the phone saying he couldn’t wait to meet them; and it definitely wasn’t the Temisan that I strolled in with about five minutes before, to get his “car key”. This was a fierce-looking, not-smiling, red-eyed Temisan, an animal… a wolf, in sheep’s clothing.

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

One More Post...

Shhhhhhh....

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!

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!
