Chapter Eleven

Ada had never worked as hard as she did in the week that followed. It was the only way she could push the feelings of helplessness, desperation, and frustration that came with thoughts of Eddie to the back of her mind. He was all she thought about, she couldn’t eat or sleep, it was only while she worked that she could forget, if only for a little while, the sight of that woman in Eddie’s arms, kissing him. 

It must have been hell for Clive as she drove him like a slave master. She spent only a few hours in the office every day, driving from one end of Lagos to another for different projects - a two page spread they were doing of a new hotel, a charity event, a comedy show, the opening of an outdoor cinema- She was everywhere, she took pictures, wrote content, and even interviewed people. When Sophie called her into her office towards the end of the week, she didn’t know what to expect, she only hoped Eddie wouldn’t come up in their conversation. She knew that Sophie must have noticed that Eddie hadn’t spoken much to her at the awards. She hadn’t asked why, but it was only a matter of time. .... Read More

  16. My head hurts from the pain she must be feeling now. She is absolutely disappearing from the exhibition and pulling a pillow case over her head for like forever.

    I feel for her. But she is indeed courageous.

  21. Knowing how difficult it can be to find the time and inspiration to write, I have tried to not bug Somi about putting up the other chapters but I have come to that point where I have to plead with her.

    Somi, na beg I dey beg biko. I come here almost everyday and I have managed to read it all over again from chapter one. At this rate, you'll have to put up 3 or 4 chapters whenever you get around to it :)

    I like the 'maturity' displayed in the new cover but I liked that there was the National Theater on the old cover :)

  25. 'He was breathing deeply, but the expression on his face didn’t change. He puts his hands on her shoulder to steady her. “You’re sorry.” He said, “That’s okay. I forgive you.”

    She swallowed, there was a lump in her throat. “But?”

    He hesitated for a moment, then he shrugged, “But I’m here with someone.”

    Her heart had never felt so hollow. She was going to cry, she couldn’t cry, not here, in front of everybody. She started to say something, but she couldn’t articulate the words in her mind. I thought you wanted me, she screamed silently. Why did you make me fall in love with you, and now you don’t want me anymore?

    “I’m sorry.” He added.'

    This made me want to cry like a baby.

  27. It's just funny how most of us have stylishly gone to review the cover, all in the name of updates. What one will do for Hidden Currents ehn...
    On the Cover, it's very apt for the book like someone noted earlier, its matured.
    Nice work Somi.
