#WriteRight. Mr K: Afraid.





I think they are after me. It's not really a thought any longer because I kind of confirmed it yesterday. They are really after me. My father will always tell me "be sensitive in the spirit" but I never pay much attention to that as a believer of live and let live, that if I do no one harm then harm will not come to me but I was in for a rude awakening.

This is not to complain because truely I've not been a fervent Christian lately and I can't say the signs have not been there seeing the strangeness of recent happenings ... is it the spoiling of 3 of my gadgets on the same day or the misplacement of a very important document needed for my internship placement to mention but a few. I just counted them little bad lucks until yesterday.

I woke up when my alarm rang around 7a.m and like most of my Saturdays in school I went through my phone for a bit, brushed my teeth and went out to buy akara opposite my lodge so that I could take pap with it. routine stuff.
I came back, boiled water and prepared the pap and everything was fine until I reached for my cupboard.


I saw them, everywhere around but I didn't believe it. I slowly stretched out my arm and took my tin of milk. They were everywhere. I opened the container and looked in as my eyes became clouded with tears. Ants everywhere in my tin of milk. 


This is serious and I need all the emotional support I can get because I'm still in trauma. The closest provision store to my lodge is about a kilometer or more away so I had to take that pap and akara like that. With every spoonful of pap I cursed the 'class - Insecta' under my breath. I gave up half way, borrowed an insecticide spray from my neighbour and ended the life of every non-human in my room. The war has just begun. As I write, I've lost faith in the co-existence of man and animal. They continue to take us for granted and it's high time we sent them into extinction!

  1. Lol...big lol.

    Kind of reminds me of someone I was supposed to meet recently. Her excuse...her boyfriend was involved in an accident and she had to be in the hospital for like a week for his surgery. Okay, I emphatize, thinking it was a near-death scenario. When we finally meet...the accident only involved a finger that he wasn't going to lose.
