Boss ladies’ Nest 4: My spirit yearns for you

Adele stared at Bolan. She looked into his eyes and saw the warmth. She also saw something else. The evening flashed through her mind’s eye and she sighed. “Are you okay?” Bolan asked. She nodded. “You are not, my dear,” he said firmly. “I’m good,” she said. “I wish I believed you,” he insisted. Adele smiled and said, “I’ll be good”. “Now I believe you,” he said, grinning. That boyish look again! Adele felt most uncomfortable. She smiled. “Good night dear. I’m so happy this moment. I’ll drive behind you…

Boss ladies’ Nest 4: The strange man

The stranger stood respectfully before them, awaiting their response. Merely looking at him, one would know that he was a cultured being. His crisp, snow white cotton shirt under a checkered grey tweed jacket, a heavy looking gold Rolex wristwatch peeking out from under a clean cuff as he raised his hands slightly, all gave him a sartorial looks. “May I,” he drawled again, looking directly at Adele. “Oh yeah,” Blossom said in a voice she could barely recognise as hers, searching Adele’s face. Adele merely nodded. She didn’t even…

Bossladies Nest (3): Vagina Kung fu

Adele stared at her bosom friend, Blossom. She was telling her things she hadn’t heard before. At her age, she felt she should have known such things.

She felt a dizzying pain as the sole of the shoe caught her at the small of her back. Jay lunged at her the second time. She slid off the bed and landed, thud, on the floor. She picked herself off the floor and did a quick calculation. She could dash into the convenience and turn the key before he could circumvent the bed and come…

The two girls watched the well-dressed lady who sat quietly in a corner, staring at her food. They knew something was bothering her immediately she walked into the restaurant with a blank look on her face. She had absent-mindedly ordered an incongruous mix. “I’m sorry ma’am, did I hear you right? You requested for fried rice, dried fish and okra soup,” the waitress said hesitantly. “Yes,” the lady responded without looking up. “Are you eating it here or you’re taking it away,” she asked again. “Eat in,” the lady intoned,…

James was furious. He charged towards Alice and suddenly pulled back. He snarled at her, “Who did you call a prostitute? Kiki?” Then, his face transformed from anger to something Alice couldn’t just make out. “Gawd, I love that woman! If she agreed to marry me, I would have kicked you out of the house long ago,” he said. Alice stared at him, mouth agape. “Oh, you’re in love with your brother’s wife? Are they aware? If you had married her, she would still have gone to a real man…

He turns to leave, but…is it not better to make his presence known and delay whatever Kathryn plans to say? As he hesitates, James turns the corner, marching towards him. Oh no! This is not the…
