Thou Shall Not Die

I remember it like it was yesterday. No, really, the only reason I’m using that old, overused cliché is because it is true, I remember it like it was yesterday. It was around 6am and I had just woken up. I have this weakness where after waking up, I take around ten minutes adjusting to…

Female Masturbation Is not a Sin

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a problem. Apparently, the topic on female masturbation is taboo. An abomination to even talk about it in public. If you as much as whisper it to anyone who cares to listen, they’ll condemn you with that sideways evil eye. That eye that says “slut”. I don’t understand it. Why…

Meet Maryann – My Husband

It was easier to carry placards in the streets of the capital city and shout your voice hoarse on the rights of homosexuals and same sex marriages. Way easier.

The Succession

The four men in the club house looked frail and tired, very much unlike the tough persona they liked to front to the public. Even without their saying a word, an outsider would easily have spotted the leader, Mr. Chumbe. He was a born leader, the best the country never had. He rubbed his forehead…

I came to kill.

When the time finally came for them to go into the doctor’s room, Catherine almost panicked. She didn’t know why exactly, but she had a feeling that some tragic news was going to come out of this visit. Which saddened her, because deep down she knew that if they received any horrible news today their…

Yes Boss!!

To say that Helena was frustrated at that particular moment would be an understatement. She was riled beyond words. She hated everything about this new town. Initially she’d been very excited about the transfer. New opportunities, new friends, new environment that comes with new challenges. She was bubbling with anticipation. But as the days passed…
