Penultimate Night; By Kay




"A cone of Ice Cream please" he said in that deep husky familiar tone. Commanding yet so delicate. She could recognise his voice anywhere especially sitting with her daughter just right beside her. He hadn't noticed her when she walked in and she never thought she'd see him again. More so, in an ice cream shop.

"Mummy" Dumsy said, "my ribbon is off again. It keeps falling". 

She patted Dumsy's hair with trembling hands and took a calming breath as she let herself come to terms with his stare. Dumsy must have alerted him with her words. The shock of seeing her vibrated through his body. She was the last person on earth he had expected to see. A broad smile spread on his face as his green gaze took in her wind blown hair and flushed face. She was wearing a honey brown shirt that clashed with her hair and eyes in an interesting way, he thought. She swallowed hard and made a mental note to herself for comportment. He walked towards her laughing and stood swiftly to embrace him. She felt a jolt of desire run through her body. Concealing it, she made an attempt at humour. 

"Oh My! Look at you. Ahn Ahn,even in a suit,all those biceps aren't hidden". He let out a long hearty laughter. "Says the beautiful one who still looks the same after...what? How many years now? What happened,I..."

"I'm married now", she interrupted. "Meet my daughter Dum, it's been 5 years" She blurted, letting the words flow, trying not to revisit the past.

He was perplexed. Not that he thought she'd never marry, but not this soon. He persuaded her into exchanging numbers and they left on a friendly note. 

He called that night. Jude. She had quickly gone into her daughter's room in the guise of ironing her uniform and setting her bag. They spoke at length and she came out grinning like a teenager in love. She was cross at herself. She knew this day would come. She knew seeing Jude after marriage would set her emotions ablaze. He had been the only man she ever loved anyways and she didn't love another until her husband came along. 

He was good Man, Keside, her husband. She loved him for many things. He was a good father, wonderful husband and had the best character. A rare gem she thought. But she wasn't in love with him. Her friends used to tease that he worshipped the very ground she stepped on. That same night, he informed her about his trip out of town and just on cue she scheduled to meet Jude the day after tomorrow, Friday. She hated Jude for bringing out this side of her. She wondered where all the vows she took at the altar had gone, if it was worth throwing away. But it was Jude. In a bid to clear her thoughts, she stepped into the shower and her husband joined shortly. They had made love and it was out of this world.    

*******************************
That night, she wore a red gown with its slit cut dangerously high, just how he loved it on her. When he opened the door, she knew there was no going back. He was naked from the waist up, holding a tall glass of white wine in his left hand, like he'd planned a grand opening. She walked in, made to drop her bag on the sofa and turned to see him standing right behind her. She could feel his erection. 

"J-Ju-Jude" she said. His probing hands had found it's way in between her legs. She could see he had a smirk on his face.
"Tell me if you want me to stop and I will"
"I'm married" she said
"Tell me about it"
She threw caution to the wind and let her lips press his, drowning her moans of pleasure as he took her to the table, spreading her legs apart to let her feel the hotness of his groin. He liked the lights on. He loved seeing all of her.

********************************
     She knew that familiar feeling, those ones accompanied with nausea, those ones that bring discomfort. The same ones she had before she had Dumsy. She  brought the pregnancy kit out of her bag and rushed to the toilet. Reading it's positivity, she hasn't expected less. She would pin it on her husband, they after all had sex two nights before she made love to Jude. She knew he wouldn't know. He loved her too much to suspect. She remembered the penultimate night with Jude years ago. It was the night they made Dumsy.



...every end is a new beginning.

  4. I still dont get it. Why do people have sex without protection? Condoms are cheap.
    Did she plan to carry his child? Cos I dont get why she didnt use morning-after pills. Postinor2 is cheap.
    I dont get it. Arent people scared of STDs?

    Its one thing to cheat, but to cheat and then get pregnant or bring STDs to the family? Naaaa. Thats foolish and almost unacceptable.

    Peace.

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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!
