Sotonye II

“Sotonye…” I began. “What are you saying?” she turned over on the bed and faced the wall. Since when did she become too shy to look at me? “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. It’s cool to be all buddy-buddy with everyone. But there’s just something that’s missing. I can’t really explain it…but I want to be special. I… Read more →

No good morning, no how-was-your-night…nothing. “of course you are” I said. “you didn’t even think about what I asked you“ she said as she walked right… Read more →


I will never forget how mother was brought home from the office that day. She looked like a vegetable though uncle Tom said it was only a slight fever but I knew mother’s situation was more than that. Mother stopped going to work which was very un-workaholic of her. When I asked why, she told me her boss thought she was… Read more →

Diary of a confused schoolgirl

Tricol High Six

Ah…Hecareth. Nobody would understand what could bring a weakling like me together with a muscleman like he. Tall and short. Meaty and skinny. Popular and unpopular. Loved and Hated. We were the unlikely team, silently building ourselves up. HE was the one person who had nothing bad to say about Electromon. He taught me stuff. He taught me how to… Read more →

49 missed calls

“Objection My Lord! The Evidence Act 2011 in sections 78-85 expressly forbids counsel from asking my witnesses scandalous, vexatious and needlessly indecent questions. Asking a catholic priest what he would do if his girlfriend stopped picking his calls amounts to impugning his character!” “Objection sustained!” That was when I snapped back to reality.
