An Emotional Affair – Part Twenty-Three

Danny left the Church building still reeling from Bolu’s hug.  He could still feel his big strong arms around him, squeezing him.  Danny hadn’t been hugged like that before.  It was…comforting.  Strangely so.  And what Bolu had said about God loving him was just…too much.  He couldn’t take […]

Lola’s instinct was to scream “Yes! Yes! Oh, yes… I’d rather be married to you any day…”  Having spent long enough discontented in marriage, and knowing all the things Danny could offer her that Bolu couldn’t and wouldn’t for a while to come (if ever), the idea of […]

An Emotional Affair – Part Ten

Lola’s flight from Lagos landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja by quarter past ten on the Tuesday morning.  She had only hand luggage, so she didn’t have to wait for any baggage at the baggage claim.  She sent Bolu a message to tell him that […]
