The Glittering Briefcase

In a distant land, within the south-south region of Nigeria, there lived a couple, Mr. Effiong and Asari with a child, Henshaw. Mr. Effiong engaged himself into fishing 🎣 🐟 which was a lucrative job then and earned himself fame through it. He was nicknamed Effisco by all. Mr. Effiong had an admirable character and being biased was not found in him. He gave helping hand to people no matter their background, he was not discriminating. He was known for his kind gestures that earned him the title  "Ada-idaha ke Efik Eburutu" in Efik kingdom in Cross River State of Nigeria the title was not for all and sundry but those who has made remarkable achievements in the sands of time.

A school girl of 17 years of age name Immy was a born and bred villager. She was unaware of the ugly situation that would befall her in the next two nights. She never realized the calamity that would visit her. Before she had left her home in the Eastern region to the South South region she was given a strong warning by her parents, to stay away from men and pay much focus on her education. She was told that men would only end up in jeopardizing her future. She was advised that men will give you great hopes but will fail you, but she will have a promising future if she does not listen to them but concentrate more on her study. This warning put into her so much fear and hatred for men.
Immy was ravishingly beautiful and had her flowers still intact. She was exceptionally intelligent. She was the talk of all the guys and everyone wanted to associate themselves with her. Both married and single men all paraded about her like men among angels 👼. Girls also where attracted to
her too. With so much pressure mounted on her by single and married men to go bed with them, she gave deaf ears. Apart from advice from her parents, she considered premature sex as repulsive and ungodly.

There on campus, there was this terrorizing gang nicknamed "the scorpion" this cult group vowed that they will not rest until they get what they wanted. And amongst them was "poison" a young boy that vowed in his heart never to let go until he swims in her stream even if it will involved rape. The guy was one of the top capons. He carried his shoulders high because of his notorious actions which which he gained his popularity and respect. He terrorized both students and lecturers and those that seemed stubborn were found dead in lonely areas.

Mr. Effiong's kind gesture endeared him to many people. He was a man of simple character. He was not full of himself.

WOUNDED

Chapter one PANDAMENIUM Emara got jolted awake from her sleep by a thunderous knock on her door. It was a knock of desperation from a frustrated man who has applied every available option to get what he desires, but could not. "Open this door, or I'll break it down", thundered Ayoka. With sleepy eyes, Emara asked, "Who is it?" "I said open this door for the last time or I will just pull down the door right now." Ayoka threatened. Before Emara could find her way to the door, Ayoka forcefully pushed the door with his right leg with all the strength he could muster, and standing face to face with Emara, he brought out his dane gun and fired a shot at her at the breast region and quickly vanished into the darkness of the night.      Emara and Ayoka have been live-in lovers for ten years in a suburb called Ngbafor, their relationship over these years has been full of ups and down, but in the midst of these unc

Tips on how to be successful

Everyone wants to be great, but not everyone will be great because not everyone can give it all it takes.            When they see what it takes, they back down and seek for an easier life. Sooner or later, they find out, nothing in life is really easy. Both the good and the bad is hard. To reach for greatness is hard, to remain in obscurity is hard, choose your 'hard'.         You can't become a genius without fighting battles and taking challenges, you can't run from difficulties and think you will be great. Stop hoping and searching for an easy life, start getting used to hard. Learn to embrace it and let it fuel your drive.        Life gets hard, things go wrong, but no matter what happens, you've got to stay strong. When it gets hard, live it anyway. Don't wish it was easier, rather strive to be stronger.         There is no easy path to glory, there is no rosy road to fame, be courageous and face the battle,

Turn your passion into profit//Create your business concept//Set up your business//Find customers and make money//Grow your business. Thinking Like An Entrepreneur However, the first step toward becoming an entrepreneur requires no action at all. It is not about acting, but thinking.
