Musings of a Maskuraid…

ALWAYS & FOREVER (7)

Photo Credits - Google “But you can’t just leave me Ini.” It took all of my willpower to look Naomi in the eye, but I did. “I have to dear. In another hour I’ll either be on a flight heading home or at the airport waiting to board one. I’m going back to my life babes; you should go back to yours.” “But wait, why this all of a sudden? Why leave me now? I need you here Ini. Who’ll take care of me? Surely you’re not about to abandon me in the hands of that man I married More...

ALWAYS & FOREVER (6)

Photo Credits - Google “You were too loud man? I could hear you grunt.” My quarry sidestepped my surprise attack from behind with annoying ease and the momentum of my swing took me past him. I caught myself just short of the wall, turned and faced him, the still smiling fool who was now behind me and in front of the open door. Again I charged. If my second attempt had caught him it would have smashed his jaw to bits, but one second he was there smiling in front of me, and then More...

ALWAYS & FOREVER (5)

Photo Credits - Google The sight of the bandage-swathed body on the bed dragged a scream from my throat as I entered the room, much to the displeasure of the nurse that led me in. “Mr Ini, please try and control yourself” she remonstrated, while remaining by the door. “I understand your reaction, but we’re not supposed to have visitors inside the wards yet and if you don’t watch it the matron will soon be here to throw you out. You can be sure she won’t spare me either, and More...

ALWAYS & FOREVER (4)

Photo Credits - Google “Hello…who is this?” The line was clear and the caller sounded like a female, but her words were terribly slurred as if she was dead drunk or super stoned. The number was not one I recognized, and at almost 11 p.m. in the night a probable crank caller wasn’t a cup of tea I was prepared to deal with. The day had been particularly hectic in the office and I just wanted to close my eyes and sleep. Preparations for the next day visit of The Honorable Minister More...

ALWAYS & FOREVER (3)

Photo Credits - Google “How was your trip Nee? Everything sorted now?”   Only baba aladiye (my uncle in Akure) calls me by my full name Inioluwaleyi. Everybody else calls me Ini which is the short form, but even that has always been too hard for my Norwegian boss to wrap his tongue around. When he first joined we spent many a frustrating hour together correcting his pronunciation to no avail. He just couldn’t do it, so to him I was ‘Nee’. I had no problems with that, just More...

ALWAYS & FOREVER (2)

Photo Credits  - Google “…I’m sorry young man; but you have to get out of my house immediately.” At first I thought it was a joke, until Naomi’s mother repeated herself. This time her voice went up several notches. “Ma? Get out? You mean…” I stuttered, confused. “Please don’t bother saying anything else because I’m already close to my limit right now. Just go, before I do something every one of us here will regret” she fumed. “Ma, but what did I…what’s More...

GONE!

Photo Credits - Google “…mummy I’m tired. Can we go back to daddy now please?” “No! We’re not going back to daddy, and stop distracting me!” Silence reigned in the dark interior of the car thereafter. Shifting my attention back to the empty moonlit road ahead, I stole a couple of occasional glances at my petulant four year old as she lay deflated on her seat. I felt bad for snapping at Kiki, but her whining for us to go back home to her daddy had finally gotten on my More...

ALWAYS & FOREVER

Hey there” I whispered into the mouthpiece. “Hey big head” she responded. Her voice was flat. I was used to hearing a dove coo on the phone whenever we spoke, so I immediately knew something was wrong. “You good babes?” I asked. “Yes I am hon” she responded. You?” “I’m fine. I kinda missed you, so I decided to call. Are you sure you’re fine?” “Yes. I miss you too, but I’m fine, just a little tired.” “Aww. Be easy mami. Life’s short you know, take things More...

WHAT A NIGHT

Photo Credits - Google "Won't you stop romancing that stupid laptop and come to bed?  You can’t be useless in everything can you?" My tired eyes looked up from the glowing screen at the angry pyjamas clad woman in the bedroom doorway. I was just thinking about how nice she was being with her choice of words tonight when she unleashed a typical zinger. "Next thing now your witch of a mother will come and start pacifying me to take things easy and be patient and understanding. I don't More...

B.Y.O.H

Photo Credits - Google RAVE LIKE NO OTHER, COME AND PARTY! VENUE – BELLA’S COVE. DATE – GOOD FRIDAY (APRIL 14, 2017) TIME – 11P.M. TILL YOU DROP B. Y. O. H. The last item on the glossy red invite was confusing but I didn’t want to sound like a JJC so I pretended as if I understood its meaning. “Oh man! A party? Thanks. I really appreciate this.” It was then I caught a glimpse of the time and James must have noticed the frown that crept up on my face. “Wetin More...
