Adorable sat with her hands supporting her cheekbone as if she fears that it might crack and fall off on parches. Eyes staring into the television yet oblivion of what it displays, she have to take the hardest decision of her life, the decision that can either make or break her. Looking at her small self content apartment, comprising of kitchen with modern decoration, her electronics to act as her companion, her over-size bed, walls decorated with pictures of her childhood and family members. She felt a pang of satisfaction at her achievement, to some people it might be much of an achievement but to Adorable, her home is her heaven on earth.

The decision she is about to take is going to take her out of her heaven, only God knows when she will return or perhaps she might never return again. “How did I get to this point,” she wondered", looking back to her formal life, everything came playing vividly on her mind’s screen.


Something woke me up. What it was, I don't know. The ambiance in the room had an eerie feeling, the world just felt empty. I took a leap, an advance towards the window and I peeked through it. At 10.15am, night
still seemed to romance the day.  Adebisi walked to and fro the yard swinging her backside seductively to the wind's rhythm. ‘Foolish woman’, i spat. All she ever does is make men lust after her. Damned daughter of Eve. An arrogant, lazy and nagging thing I married. What
ever drew me to her in the first place? Childless bastard.
I walked back to the bed, picked up my phone and rang mother, ‘how could she have forgotten a day like this?’ We would forfeit the day's appointment if we kept the doctor waiting. What's more, only she knows the place.
