Nigeria's leading fictional story blog - my father, my mother, she loved children, alcohol, drunkard, my teeth like a bulldog, endless reek of beer, I had never had alcohol, Lagos, University of Lagos, about marriage was pain and agony, doctor, papa, forgiveness.
He was looking gaunt and frail. As the bus swept past him, I was so sure that the man looking like a skeleton with some borrowed flesh on it was my father. I had not seen him in several years, but there was no way I could forget him. As the bus galloped through town, I could not help but reminisce on my childhood. This was my first bus ride in Lagos in many years. I had just returned to Nigeria after nearly twenty years. For the fun of reliving my childhood experience, I had insisted on riding on a bus from Isolo to Surulere. I was overcome with emotions. Clearly, my father was ill. I wanted to stop the bus and run towards him, but I guess I was immobilized by sheer uncertainty. As a child, my father was my biggest terror. I watched him beat my mother until she could barely breathe. I would wrap myself in a thick layer of bed sheet and try to snuff out the voice of my dear mother crying. She did all she could to suppress her cries but with such intolerable beating, she could not help letting it out sometimes.
