House on the Hill


I did say it would end in Chapter 17, didn’t I? Well, I was wrong. There are too much events to be cramped into just 17, so it’s going to end in 18… that’s for sure. Enjoy 16 for today though *wink*


MAJE WOKE UP EARLY, as he usually did.

Truth be told, he hadn’t had much sleep the night before. He’d spent the entire evening, and most of the night, drowned in his grief. And it had been way past midnight before he had started reflecting on Moyo’s words to him. And somehow as he considered her desire to do something for Ebunoluwa, the anguish in his heart began to ease.

It was still there. It would forever be there, he knew that, and accepted his fate on that. But it was sort of indistinct now—less painful.

His jogger and trainer on, he opened his door and stepped out.

He met Moyo coming out of her room. She instantly halted upon seeing him; and her apprehensive stare told him she was still very much worried about the events of the day before.

“Good morning, sir.”

“Morning, Moyo.” He responded to her hasty greeting. “Did you have a good night?”

Moyo stared at him. She wasn’t sure how to respond. He didn’t look furious, or upset, anymore. “No, I didn’t, sir. I was unable to sleep the better part of the night.” She decided to go with the truth. “I want to apologise if I was too forward yesterday. I should not have spoken like I did, sir.”

    I’ve been an ardent follower since your nairaland days but always too lazy to comment!! (sorry about that and I’ve changed my ways)

    TM thanks for the great work and showing us what life really should be about through your stories, showing love nd acceptance irrespective of one’s physical shortcomings as we didn’t create ourselves!!

    Life really shouldn’t be so difficult!! I’ve learnt so much from this story!!

    This is my first time commenting though I’ve been an ardent follower of all your stories from your active nairaland days (but I’ve always been too lazy to comment, but now a changed person).

    TM, Thank you so much for daily teaching me what should be more important in life *love*! This particular story has really touched the deepest part of my heart nd has taught me that we should accept people irrespective of their physical shortcomings or flaws!!

    Oya Ebun ooo do the needful #winks#
