Compassion! #5 – Clemency

It was late afternoon, and after going to see her newly adopted family and finding out the necessary expenses she was going to have to be footing from now onwards, she was on her way to church for the follow-up meeting. She sighed as she arrived at the parking lot. Looking at the cars around, […]

Compassion! #4 – Charity

As soon as she opened the door to her house, the first thing Jennifer did was to rush to the bedroom to check on her phone. The screen was dimmer than usual, indicating the battery was dangerously low. 1%, to be exact. It also revealed 34 missed calls. Majority of which were coming from church […]

Compassion! #3 – Concern

It was about 6:00 am when Jennifer stirred. Lifting herself from the bench in the reception, she felt a bit stiff in some part of her body. She stared around. Nurses bustling around, busy as ever. A few patients seated around her, waiting to see the doctor on duty. She yawned and shook her head. […]

Compassion! #2 – Care

Jennifer opened her eyes. Momentarily confused, she looked around in surprise. What am I doing here? Then she noticed the two little ones asleep on her lap, and she remembered. How could I forget? I’m here because of Evelyn and Joseph’s mother. What a day it had been for her. Having taken leave from her […]

Compassion! #1 – Consideration

It was five-thirty on a Friday afternoon. Jennifer locked the door to her house, and walked along, humming to herself as she prepared for the meeting at church. She opened the door to her Honda CR-V and drove off. A young, vibrant woman with a passion for God, Jennifer was the secretary for the main […]

Superhero Down Pt 5

This brief tale of a supposed superhero’s low periods comes to an end with this… That paper was what I had just flung across the room. The same paper was the very reason for the state I was in now. Today had been too much for me. It was one thing to have close shaves […]

Superhero Down Pt 4

Uh-oh. Bailey’s annoying stepbrother has caught him! What’s next? “Wow, man, I didn’t realize you had joined the bandwagon; I would’ve hooked you up with better stuff eons ago. We could have been shotgun buddies; firing rounds to the finest ones God made.” Stupid Chris actually thought I was as perverted as he was. “I […]

Superhero Down Pt 3

Well, this addiction is having a pretty bad impact on Bailey (although he refuses to acknowledge it). Is Martha gonna find out soon? “You’re a very confusing person, Bailey.” Martha took me out for lunch. I had no idea why but I liked being with Martha, the only woman I ever allowed into my room. […]

Superhero Down Pt 2

Well, I don’t think it’s a secret that Bailey has a serious issue. I wonder what’s going to happen with him in the coming days… “Bailey, why do your sheets smell weird?” Oh God, my mum would not hesitate to embarrass me in front of guests, hers or mine. “Mum, why are you doing my […]

So, we’re kicking off the month of March with a new story! And what I like the most about it is, it’s not my story! As you’ve already seen from the title, this is a special from Makafui, who is an avid fan of the State, and it’s an honour to have his work featured […]

But the truth is that it’s definitely going to get interesting now. What is he going to do with these lingering feelings? I wonder… […]

New week, new mercies. New episodes of OVAV!!! So last week had a pretty frightening end. Razzie did something pretty horrible. Certainly not what we expected.

Brand new week, y’all!! Thank God for His mercies. On to the next chapter in this #OVAV story! So it seems like Nii is being pretty wishful at the moment. As to whether his next meeting with Razzie will be a pleasant one is something we can only imagine. In the meantime, though, let’s get […]
