A Photo Op

I met her when I was in Uganda. I was there on vacation. It was during the summer and I had always wanted to visit Uganda because of its ecotourism. I wanted to go along the Nile River and to take a cultural tour. There are lots of forests and national parks where I could …

Twenty Questions

Velma studied him. "No need to look so uptight, Mr. Gray. I just wanted to let you know that Kiskadee Records was extremely impressed with your ad layout." "Oh." He was very relieved to hear that. "As I said on Friday, you did an outstanding job which is what I always expect from you." "Thank …

Toshiro Returns to Kampala

It was time to go to work but Ife didn't feel like it.  Since Toshiro left she hadn't felt like going to the hotel.  It was hard not going to his suite and being with him.  She missed him so much it hurt. After she met his sister, Miko and learned that he was in …

Miko Spills the Beans

"Mom, Aunt Nasiche asked me to give you this.  It looks very interesting.  She can't go because she has to cover for another nurse who called in sick, but I hope you go." Ife took the flyer from her daughter and looked at it.  It was a women's conference and luncheon held at the Hall …

Toshiro Cuts Ife Loose

It had been months since she last saw him.  He left in November and now they were in the middle of March.  It was the wet season.  It rained last night and today the place felt nice and fresh.  It was a Friday afternoon.  Her shift had ended but before going straight home, she decided …

Toshiro Returns to Tokyo

Toshiro was back in Tokyo.  He returned two weeks ago.  It was hard being away from Kampala.  All he could think about was Ife and how much he missed being with her.  All along he knew that what he had been doing was wrong but he couldn't help himself.  He wanted Ife so much.  She …

The Conflict

Try as he did, he couldn't run away from his conscience or God.  He was in a taxi on his way to a conference at the Protea Hotel in Entebbe, trying not to think about what he was doing to Ife when he heard the words, "Therefore, to him who knows to do good and …

Ife’s Loss

"He was only twenty-nine!"  Ife couldn't believe it.  Her ex-husband, Damba was dead.  "What happened?" she asked  her brother, Irumba.  It was a Sunday afternoon and she was at home.  Miremba was out with her friends.  Irumba had stopped by to give her the news. "He was killed in  road accident.  It was caused by over-speeding which resulted …

Toshiro Goes to Bunga

The taxi pulled up in front of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Bunga and Toshiro got out.  Last night, he decided that he would pay a visit to Ife's church.  He wanted to surprise her.  His heart pounded as he stared at the building.  He was nervous.  After the taxi drove off, he walked slowly …

Ife Gets Jealous

He was on the beach.  It was a beautiful afternoon.  The sun felt good on his face as he gazed out at the sea.  It was after 4.  In an hour he would see Ife.  Ife.  Right now he wished she were there with him.  They would walk along the water's edge, holding hands before …
