Nigeria's leading fictional story blog - the edge of the village, down the hill, She wore beads around her waist, sight of a beautiful lady, the devil and the deep blue sea, the goats, the teeming stars in the sky, pondered her beauty, tradition and his new-found faith, village.
“Mama, I am off,” he announced. “Okay my son. Be careful. The sun is out and the forest is teeming with snakes, so look where you step, okay,” his mother implored. “I will be alright Mama,” Onyeuke assured his aging mother. His mother’s goats were bleating non-stop out of hunger. He had to go fetch them some palm leaves so his mother would stop worrying. He wielded his machete as he strode past the thatched bamboo fence and out of the compound. He had a wrapper around his waist and an ete in hand. Ete is a rope-like material made from palm extracts of palm fronds and other specialized plant stems with high tensile strength, which is used in climbing palm trees. He was already sweating as the heat of the sun picked up steam. He walked down the hill on the edge of the village and disappeared into the forest. He slashed through thickets at the base of the palm tree he had set his sights on. When he reached it, he wrapped his ete around it and climbed effortlessly to the top. He cut down numerous fronds, enough to feed his mother’s goats for two days at least.
