TELL IT TO THE MOUNTAINS

Tell it to the mountainstell it out loud that the world might hearWax up the steep and rugged hills, journey the valleys and fountainstell them! oh tell them now that they are near ‘that there lived the casted stonesLet the world hear of their silent voices‘though may come as echoesYet, in peasantry they live and make such loud noises The worthless pearls have found their worththey sought for noesis and were answered without delayTell it out loud forthe son and daughters of lay men are now of great names Tell their success storyTell them it’s not all irony. ©Emmiasky Ojex Continue Reading

MY HEAD IS HOT. HELP ME TITLE THIS STORY, WOULD YOU?

Okorobia’s tenure as the king of Namiria Kingdom was coming to an end and he wanted another tenure— four years that would end his future aspiration of ever becoming a king in Namiria. He had ruled the kingdom for four years and some months- the few months he inherited when his predecessor died. He was the King Maker, the second in command, so the council, following the laws of the land made him the king. But there was a problem. The people of Namiria thought Okorobia was dull, sluggish and too soft to rule a diverse kingdom prone to many… Continue Reading

MOCKS AND MONKS: My Publishing Journey

It’s another day of editing. Guess what, I found some plot holes. It was embarrassing having read and read this word so many times. But guess it is best part of being a writer and editor at the same time. I have fixed the plot holes anyway. It wasn’t easy, because it kinda affected the whole story but i am doing just fine still. I just hope some modern day monks won’t sue me after reading the work for telling too much about them. LOl…I am just a writer…In fact it is fiction…all of it, but with a little big… Continue Reading

LET’S TALK DEPRESSION AND ALL OTHER MOODY WORDS

The depression that kills doesn’t get you all moody and sad and eager to die. No. It lets you enjoy life. It gives you a constant smiling face. It makes you lively and sociable so that whenever you try talking to your friends about how depressed you really are, they will shut you down. Which is not their fault, after all, you are the one powering the groove generator amongst them. Sometimes it gives you this euphoric energy and wisdom and you see yourself advising others on that very thing you’re suffering from. As messy as it gets, you would… Continue Reading

I DO, YOU DIE: Episode 15

A knock on the door and Mary jerked up from the sofa. She glanced at the clock and it was seven-thirty pm. She hastened to the door and unlocked it, seeing no need to ask who it was. But her heart sank inside when she saw Yagazie standing by the door, all smiles. She chuckled as tension gripped her. Less concerned about the multiple expressions struggling for survival on her face, Yagazie drew her into his arms for a long and warm embrace. He felt her heart quaking, imaginarily pushing him out. He broke the hug and stared into her… Continue Reading

I DO, YOU DIE: Episode 14

Munachi opened the entrance door and walked in. Their house has been a quiet zone since the incomplete dinner. But today was going to be different because she believed the news she bore, would cheer not only her mother up but also her father. As she thud her bag on the dining table, sniffing the aroma of fried rice, she paced towards the kitchen. “You are back early.” Theresa said, stirring her pot of soup.  “It’s past six, mum. I came back late.” She opened the first pot and her face wore a disappointed look. She opened the second pot… Continue Reading

I DO, YOU DIE: Episode 13

I DO, YOU DIE: Episode 13 Since meeting with Lori, Mary’s caller tone became her greatest fear. Whenever her phone rang, her heart beat hastily along the tone. It got worse and she removed the tone, leaving only the vibration. But that was the worst, for once; the phone fell off her hand while she was attending to a customer. Then she switched it to silent mood. She wasn’t ready to talk to Lori, let alone meet her. With two weeks gone, she figured she has either left town or decided to give her the space she needed. Slowly, her… Continue Reading

She glanced at Yagazie, he was reading the menu. She sighed, calming her strained nerves. “Na wah ooo!” Lori said as she approached Yagazie. “People dey resemble each other shaa.” She smiled amidst her perfect pidgin English rendition. Yagazie reciprocated. “Sorry for that misunderstanding. I been think say na my old friend wey lost. But no be she. She just resemble her, very… Continue Reading
