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...

INSECTA

Charles yawns aloud and stretches his joints, then yawns aloud again. He isn’t that tired but his head feels like a wet sponge. For the past hour or so, assimilation hasn’t been easy.

Credits rolled on the TV screen, signalling the end of the movie. Olu picked up the remote control and reduced the volume, then aimed a playful kick at his friend’s ankles. “Wake up sleepy chicken, the movie is over now.” Sola muttered and got up from his position on the floor, then slowly stood up and yawned loudly. “Thank God it is,” he said, stretching his body as he did so. “Only God knows what you see in all these crazy and psychotic horror movies you devote your time to watching.
