    Photo Credit- Unicef   Phew. I miss the days when I wrote like this. It wasn’t that very long ago either. Found this in my email drafts where most of my unfinished tales hide. Enjoy.   Papa told me to tell everyone to call me Mary when we got to Lagos. “But why Papa?” I asked, folding my tiny, frail body […]

  • Things We Lose

    By Kiah on September 28, 2015
    I don’t like this story…i find it tedious, boring even but I am discovering the boring side of me. This is a good thing…think of it like a denouement. If you know me well, you know I will be right back around on that mountain top. Bear with me. Kisses…   She sees his snout first. It lands in her […]

  • They Walked on Water

    By Kiah on April 27, 2015
    This one is a tribute to this relentless winter. Thank goodness Spring is here. I like the story for many reasons. I have managed to talk about at least 5 themes in less than 2000 words. There is love, fatherhood, immigration, seasons, identity etc… This is the first story i ever written that i want to write a sequel to. […]

  • Saving Snowflakes

    By Kiah on January 16, 2015
    Arese loved snow. She loved the different shapes a snowflake could take, the way the flakes danced around you as they fell as if to wrap you in a cocoon of warmth while the rest of the world froze, the way the ice tasted on her tongue and made her feel like a little child… Throughout their first winter in […]

  • Love’s Tempo

    By Kiah on October 15, 2014
      He was leaning against the counter of the Au Bon Pain at Grand Central where he had eaten breakfast for the past three years when he first heard her name. Ordinarily he shouldn’t have reacted. He had been hearing the word ‘Vivacissimo’ every day for most of his life after all. But it was the first time he would […]

    By Kiah on September 4, 2014
    He was too early. The email had said 11am at the Nethermead. Yet here he was, right place but wrong timing. He smiled bitterly to think about how that statement summed up his whole life. It was a little after 10am and the city was only just waking up after the debauchery of Friday night. Osamudiame held onto his coffee […]

Till I have a new angle on this thing called love at least 🙂 Till then, Enjoy and don’t forget to let your love be heard… […]

  • Mr Anansi

    By Kiah on April 15, 2014
    This one was inspired by the beautiful Taha, a girl whose heart never ceases to amaze me with its goodness…She inspires many of my stories. That is her in the photo and no we are not taking any offers for marriage… Love you T.   Mr Anansi came over the other day. It was a very strange visit. The doorbell […]

  • Homecoming

    By Kiah on March 23, 2014
    I wrote this two years ago but it is something is still fresh on my mind. I have a confession to make though; I have never been to Paris! But I dream of it so I am hoping that counts for something. This one is for those of us making new homes in places far away from home…Look on the bright […]
