NEW 9JA STORY: STRANGER IN HER BED || written by Damescaucus

The little table clock glowed a neon green, its light casting an uneven shadow on her desk. Rebby groaned and massaged her neck tiredly; realizing that she had yet again stayed back to work late. It was 9:20pm and she was tired and hungry. Her secretary and driver had gone home and she was sure she was the only one left in the office, save for the building security. A sudden wariness settle over her as she began to pack up and she wondered vaguely if she would be able…

NEW 9JA STORY: THE PROPOSAL || written by Chioma Ejide

Nnenna looked at Emmanuel on bended knee with a small red box. In it was the most beautiful ring she had ever seen. Tears shimmered in her eyes as she thought of all the effort he had put in place to make this proposal perfect. He had told her he wanted them to finally have that moment on the beach, alone that she had always asked for. Nnenna loved the beach. She loved the feel of the wind against her skin as it came crashing in with the water. She…

NEW 9JA STORY: ADAM’S ADULTEROUS APPLE ||

Adams loved me. I know he did. Sure we had broken up months ago and he had had two girlfriends since then with one of them expecting his baby but still he loved me. I smiled inwardly on this realization. How else could this be explained? Why else would he sit beside me and talk about things that happened during the one year we were together and things that could have happened if we had stayed together? He definitely loved me!

NEW 9JA STORY: STOLEN MOMENT || written by DAME

Isimi waited for her father to drive off. She hoped he didnt forget his Bible or any other such religious paraphernalia he would need in Church. The council of elders were having a meeting and seeing that her father was the General Overseer of Kingdom Of Eternal Light Ministry, she hoped he wouldn’t be back home for another 3hours. Her mother was getting ready to go visit a widow from the Church. As the women leader, it was imperative she led the other women down to Sister Ayobami’s residence for…

NEW 9JA STORY: YOUR PLACE || written by Jerry Chiemeke

“J, I’ve got something important I want to tell you.” “Funny, because there’s something I want to tell you too.” “Ok, go on.” “No, you first.” “Nah, after you.” “You first….I insist.” Typical argument between Irene and I. We argued about everything, from who should pay the bus fare, to who should sit first on the church pew. I was always willing to be a gentleman for Irene, and though she was not always up for that, she eventually decided to dance to the “ladies first” script this time and…

NEW 9JA STORY: AICHA || written by Nneka Ezealor Oladimeji.

I stood in the bath and watched the steam rise from the hot water in the orange bucket in front of me. I wondered why I had heated water to bath instead of using the cold one from the shower. I turned the shower knob a notch and a few drops of water escaped and landed on my naked body. They were so cold I shuddered. I stood watching the drops race themselves down my shoulder and down until they disappeared under my left breast. I ran my palm over…

NEW 9JA STORY : REPRISAL [FINALE] || written by Dame

PREVIOUSLY ON PART 02 FINALE Desmond was worried. As he raced his car to Marigold Hotels and Suites, he tried to convince himself that nothing bad had happened, but his instincts told him otherwise. Nkem’s call had brought on a potpourri of emotions. First he was relieved that she was alright; then he got angry that she skipped security and eventually he became worried. She had sounded strange……too strange. How she managed to escape from under the nose of the two police orderlies stationed to guard her was still a…

NEW 9JA STORY : REPRISAL [PART ONE] || written by Dame

PART 01 There was something about Nkem that made him uncomfortable. She was unlike the other two girls who seemed excited and willing to do anything including some girl-on-girl action. She was calm. Eerily so… and Donald didn’t like it. For some unfathomable reason, she scared him and he couldn’t understand why. The last time he felt this way, he was staring at a gun pointed at his forehead. Carlos has meant to kill him and it was only by some stroke of luck that he remained alive. The incident…
