Talk about love online? What I found was scam, hurt, destruction, Death!
It was an hot wednesday afternoon, I just got back from another long tiring job hunt and was famished. I grabbed my Phone and started browsing through; from IG to Twitter to my private BBM and Whatsapp messages. Then Facebook! There was this friend request that caught my attention. It was from one Andrew Marc and he had my picture as his profile picture. Surprised, I accepted his friend request and he sent me a message almost immediately. He said he was an investment banker and worked in a Company in Abuja. He stumbled on my facebook profile and got interested. His explanation was lame and I sensed a phoney!
Hoping that no harm would come out of it, we got chatting. At first, our conversations were erratic and monotonous. But things improved. He was an interesting guy and I found my self looking forward to his messages. One day, I confided in him that I was job hunting. He said his Company was recruiting and he could reserve a slot for me if I was willing to move down to Abuja from Lagos. Of course I was! I was anxious, scared and excited at the same time. Marc and I finally met. He was as handsome as he looked in his pictures. We exchanged pleasantries and he soon drove me down to the staff quarters. We started getting really intimate. He asked me out one sunday evening and I said yes!. Things happened fast and soon we were married.

One evening, barely 3 months into our marriage, Marc and I came back from work and found a woman with three kids waiting for us at home. As soon as Marc set his eyes on the woman, he dashed out and drove off fast. The woman then told me I was the 7th woman Marc would be getting married to. He had used the same trick on 6 women prior including her! I passed out. When I came around, I rushed to the apartment. It was empty! All I found was a few of my stuffs scattered all over the place! He blocked me on whatsapp and deleted his facebook account. His numbers were unreachable and there was no where to trace him to. I went back to Lagos empty-handed, heart-broken and worse off than I left. Then with a one-month old baby in my womb!

Congratulations and we’ll be in touch!
If you didn’t win, do not be discouraged, keep your entries coming!

    “All work they say and no play makes jack a dull boy”
    It was after a long semester tussle from one lecture theatre to another, all through the night classes,the sleepless nights,the days that went by without a complete 3 square meal, a food formation of 101 and at times 001 was so inevitable. Body fat had depleted, and cheek bone was so glaring like the hunters touch, I was simply a sack of bone.
    At long last it was going to be a sessional break a bounty 3 months of holiday to cool off.
    Thoughts came contrasting as to where to spend the holiday.
    So I finally concluded on going to my uncle’s place in lagos, at least he’s not married no child problem of catering for,whenever he goes to work I become so free to live a new world and come to think of it my uncle is a happening kind of person always balling during his leisure hours.
    So I finally moved to my uncle’s place in order to live my holiday to d fullest.
    Two weeks after moving in the whole holiday issues began to bore me I was always at home all alone all I do is eat. Then I realized there more to enjoyment than been free and just living a gluttonous lifestyle, no friends around just me and myself
    There’s a relaxation centre around though where music is just been played all day, so I said to my self maybe one of these days I will just chill out here, but still I don’t know this is going to come to life.
    Two days later my uncle got a call from office he was going to be away from home for a week on official assignment.
    So the next day he left for ibadan on official duties.
    As usual it was me all by myself and I decided to move out finally.
    I went to the relaxation centre with the hope of just grabbing a drink and perceive a new breathe of atmosphere, so I went to the bar orders for my very chilled origin and made my way to a chair to sip my drink as I watch the activities around.
    There was a pool around and there’s this pretty damsel who was just alone inside the swimming pool she wasn’t definitely a pro at swimming I could sense she was a rookie because she was making use of the rubber ring .Her skin was so fair to look upon and her charm and aura was daring
    As a sharp gentle guy I made way to the bathroom took my shower pull my clothes was left with my tight shorts so I dived in to have a pool chat with this damsel and also help her out.
    She was so much well behaved and I fell instantly for her personality.
    We both tried a few swimming stunts and she was so grateful for the kind gesture, we exchanged digits and parted ways.
    One getting home I was feeling like a greek god because of the connection at night I called and it was brief consistently we got talking the connection was like an electrovalent bond it was strong, a couple of times we both hang out and had precious moment together like seeing a movie and the likes, she was fun to be with and she also loved my company. It was two weeks after we met and I was already eager to make her mine only in order not to be a victim of FRIEND ZONE .
    So I decided to take the bull by the horn and made my intentions known,there was no way she could have declined she was also into me I made her smile and any thought of me made her blush…
    Two years from then I am still so much in love with the love of my life, day in day out our love is been rekindled like a glowing splinter” xoxo…

    What are you guys looking for? Creative or a tragedy? Saw story better than this yesterday or were you guys lazy to read? Even me that is not a panel read all. And I saw creativity , hardwork and art in piece better than this.
    Just tell us there’s nepotism in these and I will understand.

    I honestly don’t know what criteria they are using to pick their winners. It’s not doing justice to the competition. But what do I know???
    Someone has to win at the end of the day. Congrats winner!

    I was on holiday in lekki, Lagos, with my mum, dad and sister, in July 2013. One night Mum was the first ready for dinner and announced she was off to wait at the hotel bar.
    By the time I got there, Mum was busy chatting away to a handsome young man called Steve. She’ll talk to anyone, she’s so friendly. I just smiled, said hello and ordered our strawberry daiquiris before we went off for dinner.
    “What a lovely, genuine guy,” Mum said as we sat down. Later, my sister Debby 23, and I were in the disco bar, when Steve came over.
    We got talking and then my phone went off. I had the ringtone set to some drum and bass and when Steve heard it, he couldn’t believe it – it was his favourite kind of music. Every day at the pool he’d come talk to me although he was there with friends.
    Three days in, we bumped into each other at the hotel bar and drank more strawberry daquiris, then Steve offered to walk me back to my room. The following night we all went into the local town and Steve held my hand. We took the long route home and while we were walking, he asked me if I could see something happening between us.
    I said we should just see what happened. I was about to do my final exams and the last thing I wanted was to fall in love. But the next night we met for more drinks and when Richard walked me back to my room we kissed. But I was on holiday with my parents, I was well behaved. We’d hold hands while in the bar and shared a few kisses, nothing more. Steve was so friendly and I loved that he took the time to talk to my parents too. But I didn’t see how the relationship would work back in the Enugu. I lived in Enugu state, he was from Anambra. We were on the same bus home and said goodbye at the park thinking we would never see each other again but within hours Steve sent a text asking when we could meet.
    We spoke on the phone every day for two weeks, then he drove over to visit and we met up at one car park near my house as my house is hard to locate. It felt strange seeing him again, no longer in the sunshine by the pool, and in a supermarket carpark. He came to my parent’s house and the more we talked, the more it felt right.
    I was living with my older sister, Nancy, and by June 2014, we got engaged. Falling in love with Steve was such fun. We both loved cars and would rent sports cars and drive them around racetracks.
    In October 2015, we found out we were having a baby – Christabel now one, and last August he bought his first house. I changed all my life plans when I met Steve. He was the first guy I ever went out with who my Mum liked and there’s a reason for that – he’s kind, honest, fun and an amazing dad to Charitable.
    One friend warned me that people were different on holiday. It’s true. I’ve learned that Steve is useless with money and he’s accepted I can be quite moody, but I followed my heart and I don’t regret it.
