“Dami, are you there?”
I was either in a shock or was too angry that my voice disappeared. I opened my mouth but no words came out.
“Hello Dami, can you hear me?”
“Yes, Daniel, I can hear you.” I said with a voice lacking any form of emotion. Continue reading Memoirs of A Lagos Searching Lady 12

I woke up the next morning with a heavy heart. It still felt like I was in a dream. How could I have been duped? After all my sharpness and even making nasty comments on social media whenever I saw a post detailing the way a lady had been duped. I always told them it was their greed and want for things they did not work for. But here I am, duped for my benevolence. I really did not feel like going to church that day. I was in no hunter’s mood. Was it not hunting that got me where I was? How careful could I have been? Where did I really go wrong? Continue reading Memoirs Of A Searching Lagos Lady 10
I look back and I wonder
Even in the midst of my ponder
Where you have been all my life
Or if you came just to spy
I remember the days I felt all alone
Wishing there was one to call my own
My pillow bore the brunt of my tears
Who else could bother about my cares?
I had to teach myself to wait
Not minding how long it would take
A time would come when I would smile
And thank my stars it took a while. Continue reading Love As I See It
Wind extinguishes candle but energizes fire.
Smith was retrenched from his job and after he collected his letter, he brought out his diary and looked at his budget for the month. School had just resumed and he had his three children’s school fees to pay. His father-in-law was ill and staying in the hospital in Lagos that meant he was responsible for the bills and taking care of him. His wife had a small provision store in front of their compound that was making just enough profit to buy some foodstuff and pay the shop bills. He was the first son in his family and that meant the responsibilities of the home were on his shoulders. While he was thinking of all these, he looked out the window of his high rise office building and before he could give it a second thought, he made for the window.

Yemi called again around 9pm and by then, I was visibly worried. Daniel’s number had not gone through all day and I did not know how to call Yemi and tell him that. at this point, I was having mixed feelings of both worry and disappointment. Worry because I was really worried about what could have possibly gone wrong and disappointed because if something has happened to Daniel, that means that I have lost a very qualified prospect. Then, the question popped in my head, “What about Daniel do I know that has made me conclude he was a prospect?” I did a random check of my expected qualities which he had checked about 80% of and wondered if that was all I needed to conclude on a guy? I felt a little ashamed of myself. Continue reading Memoirs of A Searching Lagos Lady 9
Isaiah 49: 24,25
Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?
But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.
Isaiah 49 vs 12 to 26 was my confession for this week and while I was reading it, these two verses jumped at me and I decided to meditate on them. Here is the lesson I got from it. Continue reading The Lawful Captive
I left my office and called an Uber cab to take me to the mechanic’s workshop where I will pick up the car. I tried calling Daniel several times while on my way but did not reach him. I sent several texts asking him to get back to me as soon as he saw the texts. Nothing still.
