Bro. James apartment
Omoba arrived at Bro James house about two hours later and knocked three times but got no response so he turned the doorknob and luckily the door gave way. He found the sitting room well-arranged but for a handbag on the table. Continue reading “THE CALLED (ep. 3) by Olamide Bamidele”
Back in Omoba’s room. He continues talking to himself.
O: But Bro. Segun, Segun! Nobody can be trusted o. I thought Bro. Segun was a Christian who would encourage me to keep the faith but it was a small girl like Itunu that proved to be of help.
I wish I kept trying Bro. James number
Inner voice: Stop wishing, Dayo. I wanted you to understand the extent of my love for you. I have a better assignment for you!
O: Oh not again! Which assignment could that be?

Sequel to THE CALL
Omoba turned off his phone. He needed to go over the actions of the past few days and didn’t want to be distracted by any call or message. His mind played back the events that led to his initial decision to stop working for Chief.
Chief: Omoba, how far? You should be almost here.
O. Chief, things are dangerous here right now. We were almost caught. Spider don run o but I luckily got the baby. I’ve even abandoned the car. I’m trekking towards that narrow path. I go soon…

As a secondary school boy, I was not just committed to my academic excellence, I was also committed to my spiritual growth. Thank God my school (Ajuwon High School) allowed Christian fellowship in the school and we were meeting every Friday after the school hour. This fellowship was being coordinated by Scripture Union (S.U), and it was an annual culture for S.U to organize general camping programmes for secondary school students during the Easter period and the long vacation period.
In the year 1999, I attended the camp Continue reading “BECOMING SOUL MATES : THE BEGINNING WITH EBENEZER & GRACE DIYAOLU”
June last year, I got a call from Bisi. We were course mates in school and had managed to keep in touch. We had exchanged happy new month messages, “Please send me the video on your WhatsApp status” messages, job openings, birthday messages, and the likes.
