Vera’s Valentine Surprise


Vera knew Dan would propose on Valentine’s day. He had done a bad job of hiding it. He had been distant lately and hadn’t even shown up for their routine Friday dinner date. And there had been that one time he had left her apartment hurriedly just as she came home unusually early from work.

She wanted to confront him about it the next time they saw each other but changed her mind when she stumbled on the quaint diamond ring in his drawer. After seven years of dating, Dan was finally going to propose!

Daughters Of Eve

Happy New Year everyone!!

This year, I’ll be publishing a good number of flash fiction, a genre I have always found fascinating. And for starters, I am introducing “Daughters of Eve” – A story I entered for the JB Afenfia Flash Fiction Contest. Daughters of Eve was the 3rd runner-up out of 125 entries. I really hope you enjoy reading it. And of course, your feedback is always appreciated.

It happened last night. It was one of those Friday nights when my friends and I decided to have a few drinks over plates of pepper soup, and if we were lucky, get some feminine company for the rest of the night.

The latter only applied to Ken and Ayomide, however. I was the shy and reticent one who didn’t seem to have the “bad boy” blood in him.
