Short Story: New Perspectives | By: Jerry Chiemeke

“Hey, you want me to formally invite you first, right? Nike turned her head away from my direction and continued walking towards the bathroom room……not like my eyes were focused on that part of her body anyway. Sure enough, she had nice eyes and her weave was properly fixed, but I was gazing at something else at that moment. Nike’s butt cheeks bore that aura of perfection, and no, I wasn’t harbouring that opinion simply because I nibbled at it earlier on and watch the juices therefrom grace my jaws. There was that smoothness like none other, and now...

Photo Credit: themuse.com “Heyy, make sure you report early to the office tomorrow. Remember you’ve got a journey to make.” “But Sir, wouldn’t it be better if I just took off from my place to the park, I mean, to save time and….” “Look here, I don’t know how you want to do it. Even if it means waking up by five, better report here at the office. You keep acting like you know it all. I don’t like it, you must take my instructions….maybe I should contact  your previous employers, so I can find out if you have a history of insubordination.” Insubordination, really?  I spent the next half a minute trying to process what I had done wrong, by suggesting what I felt was a better way to carry out the following day’s tasks. All that bile from his lips, just for thinking on my feet! For this boss of mine, it was either his way, or the highway. I knew that I should have got used to his vitriol and bile by now, but there was something about his recent utterances that found their way to my bone.

Hi guys, it’s that time of the year again. Our annual list is out and we really can’t keep calm at the moment.

This year’s exclusive list was compiled and written by my wonderful friend and blog contributor, Jerry Chiemeke. Jerry is a lawyer, movie critic and so much more. You can check...
