Wedding Night - Prose.





Some might have called it a bad omen, for the newly weds to find themselves in pitch black darkness on their wedding night. The power in the hotel tripped off several minutes ago and the air in the room was becoming very humid. Femi, flung away at the far end of the bed was dead to the world, his loud snores reverberated around the room. Kike however wasn't that fortunate, exhausted as she was her weak body wouldn't just give in to sleep. She held the lifeless intercom in her hand and wondered what she could do. 

Resigning herself to the darkness she soon began to drift off to sleep. Her dreams were already forming and she saw herself cut the white three-tier cake with Femi, she saw herself smile sweetly up at him and she saw him cut a piece of cake to feed her with. As she opened her mouth to eat the sweet spongy cake she heard it, and immediately Kike's eyes flew open as she was jolted wide awake. 

Kike wasn't quite sure if the scream had been a part of her dream or actual reality. As she tried to still her racing heart and convince herself that it was the latter, she heard it again. This time it was accompanied by very loud banging.

Kike sat up in bed, her heartbeat a staccato of drums. She couldn't see anything or make out any images. 

"Open this door. Open this door. NOW!" She heard a gravelly voice scream and the command was followed by a loud noise, unmistakably a gun shot. 

Kike felt a mercurial taste in her mouth which had become sandpaper dry. Panicked, she began to pound on Femi's back, forcing her new husband out of his slumber. 

"Wake up! Femi wake up! The hotel is being attacked Femmiiiiii" she screamed 

"Jumoke!" Femi muttered sleepily

"What did you just call me? Wake up Femi!" Kike screamed at a Femi who wasn't quite awake yet. 

"What?" An irritable Femi asked impatiently, shrugging her off

Kike looked at her husband of only a few hours and a sudden fear set in; who was Jumoke? Why had he used that harsh tone with her? Had marriage changed him so soon? Is this how their life as a married couple will be; him, impatient and short with her? As she began to wonder another gun shot rang in the air and jolted her back to the present, this time Femi was off the bed in a flash. 

"What is happening?" A panicked Femi asked "and why is it so dark?"

"Femi I don't know. It seems the hotel is..."

Another deafening gun shot rang through, followed by the frightening sound of strong arms banging on doors, threatening to break them down. This was followed by loud screams, it seemed the assailants had gained entrance into a nearby room and the lodger was obviously stricken with fear!

Kike and Femi shaken with panic and anxiety hurdled close together on the ground, unsure of what to do. The windows were all burglary proofed and the only way out of the room was through the door. At the other side of the door, the murderous attackers, armed robbers maybe, were obviously on the same corridor as them.

"Please don't shoot me", came a frightened voice from only a few feet away. "Please don't ...." And another gunshot followed. 

"Blood of Jesus, blood of Jesus, merciful saviour" Femi muttered with a catch in his voice. 

The voices were getting closer, the gunshots were getting louder, the attackers were obviously nearing their room. Femi thrashed around the kingsize bed for his phone and thankfully he soon found it and immediately placed a call. 

"Hello, hello! Brother Tayo, brother Tayo our lives are at risk, we are under attack, Brother Tayo please call the"

Then the loud banging came, this time it was on their own door. Kike felt her bladder go loose, she heard Femi break into tears, the first time she had heard him cry in the six years they had been together, they really were doomed. 

Kike knew it was over as one final kick did the door in. Femi held her tightly and together they lay flat on the floor with their foreheads to the ground, each sobbing tears of fear and despair. Lights were flashed in their direction and footsteps steadily approached them, stopping barely inches away from their heads. Kike whimpered like a frightened cat as she heard the person cock a gun, ready to pull the trigger. She squeezed her eyes shut, expecting the worst. 

"Femi", a voice called out, it was the soft voice of a very young woman. 

......
I eagerly flipped the page but just as I was about to proceed on the next page, the conductor announced that we had reached our destination. Irritated, I shut the book close and grabbed my bag, the lecture was starting in a few minutes. 




The End.

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…

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!
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!
