  • Hi Fizza,

    I was shocked at the first sentence. Grim reapers are certainly darker than your usual feel-good heart warming stories. But as I kept reading, I found myself getting lost into the story. As a mega wimp, I thank you for such a sweet story instead of the much darker one I had feared after reading that first sentence.
    This was really good.…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane,

    The beginning for some reason gave me a Stranger Things feel. 😀

    I’m late to the party so everything has already been said about this story. So I’ll just add that I loved the flow of the events. The seamless way you narrated your MC’s life is something I truly loved. Another thing I have to mention is the descriptive writing. You aced…[Read more]

  • Hi Maria,

    I’ve come to love your sci-fi stories so much that this one a little different. But a good different, not a bad one. 😉

    The only thing I kept thinking while about poor Brian’s troubles was first impressions are overrated. I loved the subtle way you slipped the true life lesson in here that being yourself is always better than charades.…[Read more]

  • Hi Deryn,

    You and Seyi are making my cowardly heart crumble this month. 🙁
    I had to go back and read the first installment again so completely absorb this one and to use Seyi’s famous exclamation, “Eish!” This was a painful yet thought-provoking piece. Sadly, this could be the reality for so many people. Thanks for sharing. It’s always great to…[Read more]

  • Hi Seyi,

    Wow. I don’t know where to begin. I had to just stare at my screen in silence for a few minutes to gather my thoughts. This was a dark one, for sure. I think you’ve done a great job of capturing the essence of the story which I’m sad to admit might be a reality in a lot of communities. While it doesn’t have the signature “Seyi” brand of…[Read more]

  • OMG! Ismael, I remember reading the tiny glimpse of this one while we were doing KWC and requesting you to expand this one. If I had thought it was sinister then, this piece is downright scary dark. You’ve have this Anne’s head (thankfully still joined to the rest of my body) spinning with this one. So so good. Thanks for sharing, my friend. It’s…[Read more]

  • Hey Kim,

    Oh this was such a fun piece! I don’t think I’ve ever read a pure comedy story from you, but now that I have, I want more. You need to write more comedic golds like this one, my friend. It’s so good to read you.
    Love, Anne

  • Bwahahahahahahahaha. You know when we talked about this idea yesterday, I never thought you could actually get anything other than pee-in-your-pants humor in this story, but damn was I wrong! I can’t believe how you’ve turned this story about “sneezing dogs” and “purple pigeons” into a sweet love story! You are awesome, unnie! Love you. :*

  • Hi Sue,

    Oh this was an enjoyable read. I loved how you subtly slipped in realism in the story with Mrs. Thompson’s words of advice. It’s great to read you again, my friend. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  • Oh my GOD! Dionne, you have outdone yourself, my friend. You had me in stitches with this one. This was so so so good. Just FYI, I’m so picturing Tom Ellis as Satan in this one. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  • Hi Marilyn,

    This story is everything to a Nancy Drew fan. I loved the balance of humor and intrigue in this one. Nicely done! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  • Hi Seyi,

    I apologize in taking forever to reply to your comment. I finally sat down today and decided to reply to each comment before I can dive into the new stories waiting for me. 🙂

    Thank you so much for your kind words. Just as you mentioned, I wondered whether the flashback scene was a bit too much. I used to tell stories using flashbacks a…[Read more]

    Would you believe that among all the plot twists in this story, the Andrea one was the only planned one? The rest just fell into place on their own. 😛

    Thank you…[Read more]

  • Hi Dionne,

    I apologize in taking forever to reply to your comment. I finally sat down today and decided to reply to each comment before I can dive into the new stories waiting for me. 🙂

    Bwahahaha. I know, right? This was one of the few plot twists I had actually planned just as the character got introduced into the story.

    Thank you so much for…[Read more]

  • Bwahaha. You two crack me up. 😀

    Joyce, so you already know by now more than I have said in this installment. I was shocked to hear your theories and was about to tell you to get out of my head. Hahaha. Sam can only become Sam-wise-R from this point on. 😛

  • Hi Beth,

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to read and comment. This has been quite a journey for me as I discovered something new in myself while writing this story. 🙂

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I doubt I’d have continued this story if it wasn’t for the love you’ve shown this one. The gang is back in the August SS. I…[Read more]
