A Funeral, a Divorce & Cheating

I was sitting listlessly in my living-room. I had just come home from visiting Aunt Savitri after we went to church. The sermon, Compassion Like Christ was very interesting and it held my attention from beginning to end. After the service, we mingled with the minister and other church members before we left. As we …

After the Kiss

A month had passed since the cocktail party and after trying rather unsuccessfully to get Melania to see him or to answer his calls, he finally heard from her. She called him that morning and asked him to meet her outside of the office building where she worked. The call was brief and Melania hung …

Ruth Visits Dushan

Dushan was in the lobby of his building, waiting for a cab to take him to the synagogue for a Shabbat afternoon programme because Chioma had borrowed his car to drive to an assignment which was in Manchester when Ruth walked in.

No More Marius

Elspeth sat there, heartbroken. She still couldn't believe that what she and Marius had was over before it even had a chance to blossom into something beautiful. When she went to the fashion show, he had seemed a bit withdrawn and she had thought it was because he wanted to be discreet because she hadn't …

Match-making Mother

"Clive, Dear, I have some wonderful news for you." "What news, Mother?" "Charlotte Ramsey and her parents are having dinner with us this evening." Charlotte Ramsey was a girl he knew since childhood. He remembered how his mother was always trying to make a match between them. She hadn't approved of Samantha, his ex-girlfriend from …

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

“The bible and the church have been the greatest stumbling block in the way of women's emancipation.” It was this quote by Elizabeth Cady Stanton which prompted me to write this post about her.  She came from a Presbytarian background.  It began early in her life when she attended Troy Female Seminary.
