I HAD A DREAM…ABOUT THE ANIMAL KINGDOM

I HAD A DREAM…ABOUT ANOTHER SCORNED WOMAN

I HAD A DREAM . . . THAT I KILLED A FRIEND

“Uh, sir?” I stir. “Sir…” I blink my eyes open to look into the face of a Caucasian woman. Her thinly-lashed grey eyes are staring back at me with mild interest, the kind co-travelers give each other when they realize they are about to endure a flight next to each ...

I HAD A DREAM…ABOUT A CARNAL INTERLUDE

I HAD A DREAM…ABOUT A KINGDOM (Part 1)

“Your Majesty…” The intrusion was the dulcet tone of a female voice. “Your Majesty – Walter, wake up.” A hand nudged me gently, and I felt my body sway with the rumbling motion of whatever I was inside. “We’re almost there, Your Majesty. Wake up.” The nudge was firmer this ...

I HAD A DREAM…ABOUT A SART REALITY TELEVISION (Part 1)

“Walter…Walter, are you listening?” At the call of my name, I blinked my eyes rapidly, as though groggily pulling myself from sleep. Then I turned to stare at the questioning expressions on the faces of Eketi and Ebuka. A faint stir on my left made me turn to face Ifeanyi ...

I HAD A DREAM…ABOUT CHROME’S WEDDING

Chrome told me about it. Not his wedding, silly. He told me about the Valentine note he was going to post on the 14th. And I looked forward to reading it. Because there’s just a few people whose Facebook notes I enjoy reading with relish – Eketi’s when I’m poised ...
