THE SEXCAPADES OF NATASHA (7) By Emdee David

The word that best describes Natasha Peters this morning is not “sexy,” “hot” or “romantic.” The word is FEAR. GM had left a note in the hotel room before he died of local sex enhacing induced erection. The note says: “Natasha, you have crucified me between two thieves”. The room service guy had picked it up before dialing the last number on the call log on Mr. Dakwo’s phone; it was Natasha’s. It had rung for a long time without any response. So the attendant called his manager who later…

SEXCAPADES OF NATASHA (6) By Emdee David

Natasha Peter is weak, really weak and exhausted from the marathon two-some she’d had with Dickson. Cynthia is equally weak, still lying naked beside Natasha in an unmade bed. Dickson is more or less a dead man lying at the edge of the bed, his left leg on the floor. It is just 3A.M. in the morning. Natasha’s phone had rung over 27 times without response. Finally, Dickson’s piggy snore wakes Cynthia up, and she stands angrily to wake him up. He turns but goes further on the floor with…

THE SEXCAPADES OF NATASHA –(5) By Emdee David

Natasha and her friend, Cynthia, are in bed together, chatting about what happened the other day in the office with the GM. They are both half-naked and two glasses of wine are already empty. Natasha is reluctant but Cynthia wants the full gist. Mr. Dakwoi, the GM, is her uncle who made her believe having an erection on its own was a sin. He always said that only corrupt minds have an erection, because of what went on in their mind. That was a long time ago, anyway, while she…

THE SEXCAPADES OF NATASHA (4) By Emdee David

Sometimes one wonders what is it in a woman that makes a man go haywire. Is it the face, the breasts or the hips? Or it’s just the mere fact that she is the opposite sex. Men have been told never to look at a woman twice, but these stubborn men will look, stare and even “naked” a woman with their eyes, not only twice but thrice and more. That’s why God should judge them harder. And that’s why Natasha Peters will get all the pleasure and money from any…

THE SEXCAPADES OF NATASHA (3) -By Emdee David

Continued from last week… Natasha wakes to find Mr. Dickson is not in bed with her. Where is he? She wonders. Then she notices his shoes quietly lying down on the floor beside the bed. She sighs and picks her phone. There are Blackberry pings from Cynthia. She reads, smiling. She then shifts her naked body to allow her two hands reply her friend: “I am still there o, babe. The guy is really hot. I will get one more before I hit the road. Cook ready for me o.”…

THE SEXCAPADES OF NATASHA -(2) by Emdee David

Continued from last week… Natasha Peters had been thirty minutes late to the meeting. Her apologies had come not in words but in salacious cunning winks that were meant for everybody and nobody in particular; they’d been deliberately made to look special for somebody, anybody. The frowning faces of the angry directors immediately morphed into some boyish happy ice-cream-licking teenagers. “We’ll appreciate punctuality for our subsequent business meetings, please,” one of the directors had managed to say, trying hard not to offend the angel before them. Twenty percent of Natasha’s…

How Great Leaders Communicate

-by Patrick Leddin “Leadership is first, and foremost, a communication activity.” – Hackman & Johnson We’ve all benefited from the communication efforts of great leaders. We’ve also suffered through the pains of poor communicators in leadership roles. I’ve found that great leaders regularly make five communication choices. I invite you to review each, assess how well you are doing, and consider a few quick challenges to improve yourself. I also recommend you share these with new or struggling leaders to help them improve their performance. 1. Choose to Address Poor…

The twelve chapter book, ‘Against the Run of Play – How an incumbent President was defeated in Nigeria’ – is the latest attempt by Olusegun Adeniyi to chronicle how Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan was upended in the 2015 presidential election.

Should we pay kids to read?

by DAVID EVANS A few weeks ago, my wife and I were reading aloud Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s newest book, a short volume entitled Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions. The eponymous fifteen suggestions are Adichie’s advice to her friend on how to raise her daughter – Chizalum – as a feminist. Here’s the fifth suggestion: “Teach Chizalum to read. Teach her to love books. The best way is by casual example. If she sees you reading, she will understand that reading is valuable.” This all seems sensible.…
