Celeste! Celeste! !


All Celeste did was hope, hope that he could see beneath her scars. That he could see her heart bled. That he could see through the make up, mask she wears, through the smile she wears. Through everything. Would his eyes lit up enough to see through her and save her. Or perhaps he’s dwelling in his own pains also.

Celeste! Celeste! Lara called. You have refused to answer me, it’s 1pm and you’ve been sleeping all morning doing nothing.

Celeste: sorry had a bad hangover

Celeste unbolted the door for Lara to get in.

Lara: Hangover?

Celeste: yes! Hangover, had some tequila shots with Rita last night.

Lara: Really! Anyways some guy came looking for you this morning.

Celeste: oh, no. How did kalakuta find where I live? He most have checked the employment records. I am really beginning do dislike this guy, what the hell! Why would he come to my house to ask for money for a job I didn’t even do. He didn’t even care if I was doing okay or not. I’m so calling him to quit I’m done with this job! Hasn’t brought me any luck so far.

Lara: Relax Celeste, I don’t think it was kalakuta at the front porch this morning. Didn’t you say kalakuta was dark skinned?

Celeste: Yes, he’s dark skinned,average height and good looking but then he looks like a money lover.

Lara: Well this other guy is really good looking I couldn’t get my eyes off him and he brought your wal…

Celeste: ooh please! I’m sick of all these extremely good looking stalkers anyways. I told you to stop telling me about them. Tell them I don’t live here any more. The only thing they have to offer is their looks, they’re not very smart. It’s so disappointing to see someone look so handsome and have a numb brain, just so wrong. I don’t want to hear about these guys anymore they’ll only increase my depression.

Lara: Can just shut up! And listen to me and at least let me finish my conversation before you cut in! What is your problem girl?  But wait, did you say you’re depressed? When did this start?And I’m not aware of it?

Celeste: I’m so sorry if I sounded rude Lara, I’m just so sick of everything, I feel like I’ve lost my drive. I’m so scared of doing anything. I’m just so overwhelmed by everything happening lately, and the hangover is killing me.

Lara: Aww; my dearest Celeste come here( Lara hugs Celeste) you’ll be fine, your smart beautiful and intelligent. Life is only teaching you to be strong. Take things one step at a time they get clearer that way. I’ll make you some chicken soup to help with the hang over.

Lara forgot completely to let out the fact that it was Ayman Ahmed who was at the front porch with Celeste’s wallet. Will Celeste ever find out? 

Celeste! Celeste! Lara called. The soup is ready! Celeste hurried to the kitchen in only a towel because she just got out of a hot shower.

Celeste: ooh spicy! Just the way I like it. Thanks Lara you’re the best cousin ever.

Lara smiled and went to her room. It is now 7pm and Celeste decided to go for a walk. When Lara asked ” where are you going?” and Celeste replied that she was just talking a walk.

Lara: okay! I’ll bolt the door behind you. Celeste! Celeste! 

Celeste: yes Lara. 

Lara: It was a guy named Ayman Ahmed that came this morning and he brought your wallet.

Celeste: Did you just say Ayman Ahmed! Same Ayman Ahmed! The proud pilot guy!

Lara: He’s a pilot? I knew that guy was just so dreamy and charming. Sweet! He dropped he’s number, he asked for yours but I said I couldn’t give him without your permission.

Celeste: What! Come on Lara, you should have given him my number.

Lara: No way, you remember the last time I gave some guy you’re number, you went crazy and lectured me about ethics all day. That was why I called you to give him yourself.

Celeste: I don’t even know how I feel, I’m angry and glad. Urrgghh! I hate this feeling!

Lara: Haha ha, you’re having a crush or you like him already! Cool! He’s a pilot! Listen babe, if you don’t want him, I’m so interested I don’t mind the age. 

Lara said with a smirk on her face. Celeste stared at Lara and sighed, her imagination had ran wild of why he really came to see her. Different thoughts ran through her head. ‘ could he be that, he came to apologize and ask me out on a date’ no! ‘ maybe he just came to apologize and drop the wallet’ , ‘or perhaps he cane because he had a burning desire to see me again’. At this time Celeste was lost in thought and had a solemn smile on her face.

Lara: why are you smiling like that? What are you thinking about?

Celeste: Nothing! And I’m not smiling;  Celeste said in a hurry, and walked back to her room, then she went back to the living room to ask Lara for the number. She jump and her bed and cuddle her favourite feather pillow with thoughts of whether or not she should call Ayman. She debated on that in her head for 30 minutes, before then jerked out of her bed and picked up her cellphone and dailed his number.
Ayman Ahmed: Hello;   The calm subtle voice from the other end of the phone said.

Celeste: Hi, erm  ugghh, this is Celeste!

Ayman Ahmed: ooh hey Celeste, I don’t even know what to say. Or how to say it. That’s why I really wanted to apologize in person. I’ve been a total jerk to you. That’s so not me, I’m telling you. I guess I was just pissed because it took a lot of work for me to finally Allow myself meet some random girl my mum wanted me to meet.

Celeste: well, weird isn’t it. That I had to be that random girl. And I wonder is there  more to life itself.

Ayman Ahmed: what do you mean Celeste?

Celeste: I mean, so people would feed their minds with thought of the whole event being fated to happen, but honestly I think its just a weird coincidence. You know coincidence happens but the weird ones are so confusing. You know what forget I said anything. And apology accepted.

Ayman Ahmed: thanks Celeste. You know I can’t stop thinking of the fact that if I had met you under a better circumstance, I think we could have really hit it off. You’re smart and beautiful and cool. I’m so curious I want to know what make your brain tick. I’m hoping you’ll give me a chance to get to know you.

Celeste was blushing so hard, her face lit brighter that the morning sun. She instantly wished he could ask her out on a date. Perhaps he already did.

 Celeste: well, erm.. I really don’t know what to say, honestly. 

Ayman Ahmed: I just asked you out on a date girl , say yes! Please say yes!

Celeste: I would only accept a job, maybe it will end up as a date. I can’t say for sure. But that’s the only thing on the table. Are you going to take it.

Ayman Ahmed: you leave me with no other option Celeste, I’ll take it. I’m sure it will be a great time.

Celeste: Okay then pick me up by 6pm

Ayman Ahmed: Pick you up? I thought you said it wasn’t a date. Haha ha.

Celeste: No it isn’t! Fine send me the location I’ll be there by 6pm.

Ayman Ahmed: Definately, I’ll be looking forward to that. Sleep well, Celeste. And see you too.(” hahaha classic girl drama” Ayman thought to himself).

Celeste: okay you too.


After the call Celeste was swoon with joy,” I’m going on a date she cried out aloud, yay!, ooh I need to pick out what to wear, I need to do facials, I need to shave my legs ooh jeez I need to do a lot. Lara Lara! I need some help” Celeste cried out aloud.


It’s a rainy Tuesday, ooh how Celeste loves to watch the rain. The way it washes off all the heat, and the nice lovely calm breeze  that follows, she would say. Its 5pm and Celeste was already dressed, only getting some help from Lara for her heels buckle. It was 5:45


time to be on the move. She said her goodbyes to Lara. 

Lara: Bye sweetheart, have a nice date. Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.

Celeste: oh come off it! I don’t really like the guy just a crush, and a crush can be crushed. He sort of has to accept me for who I am and be willing to support me with my dreams before I can go down that road. You know Lara it’s not that simple, I don’t think you can meet someone in a short while and all that can happen. So I’m okay, nothing will happen I don’t like him yet.

Lara: if you say so, but you know you truly can meet a guy and within a short while and you can really like him, if there’s so much genuine love, care and trust. It only takes one thing, being real. If you both are real and true to each other. Don’t be scared to be yourself, if he is real you could connect mentally, emotionally and even physically. Just be real, no need to hide. If he finds that wrong then he’s either a jerk or you’re not just compatible.

Celeste: wow! Never heard you talk like this. Thanks sweetheart.

Lara: you’re welcome and have fun. Love you.


She gets to the hotel reception at the desk she asked the receptionist, ” I’m here to see Ayman Ahmed , at room 60B. Can you help me with that “. And then receptionist told her it was the fourth floor. So Celeste took the elevator to the fourth floor. On getting there, her heart raced as she stood in front of a door with sign “Room 60B”. She knocked on the door, and there he was with that beautiful smile and that handsome face. Ayman on the other hand couldn’t believe his eye’s. So he stood there zoned out, still with that smile on his face. 

Celeste: Ayman! Ayman! Hello I’m still standing outside in front of your hotel room. Are you going to let me in, or you’re just going to stand there gawking at me?

Ayman Ahmed: oh my goodness, forgive my manners I’m just captivated by the way you look, I can’t even move. I can just stay here all night, this is a good view.

Celeste: haha, fine we better call it a night. 

Ayman Ahmed: ooh come on just teasing, come on in Celeste. You look so amazing. Those black, bold beautiful heels and that lovely red dress. And those eyes, damn! Have you come to make me loose control of myself? Haha, just kidding.

Celeste: funny guy, so we should start the massage.

Ayman Ahmed: Really? A massage in those heels. Come on Celeste! Let’s just call it a date.

Celeste: it’s a job first then we see how it goes.

 So he laid on the bed, and she started massaging him and then there was a knock at the door. The room service brought the wine. He offered her some wine and then she had a glass, and then he said to her ” oh, I thought you were going to say you are on some kind of diet” they both laughed. While she was massaging she saw some scars on his shoulder, and asked ” where did you get this” and he replied ” it a gunshot wound from when I was in the Turkish army” . Then Ayman said to her.

Ayman Ahmed:  Alright, wait just stop! Celeste my mum was right  I really needed a woman in my life , some that is smart, beautiful, intelligent and above all that we connect on so many level. Celeste we can jumb into different conversations and not be bored. The other day I came to drop your wallet, I don’t even know how I found myself on your front porch. I just felt so stupid for how I acted towards you and I had this burning desire to just see you again. And my mind was left with thoughts of who you really are. I really can’t explain what this feeling is, but I know that you’re someone I would love to be with. Someone that when I’m back from work I want to laugh with and end my day with. 

Celeste sighed, held his hand said to him “ooh Ayman” . And then gave him a peck on his left cheek. 

Celeste: I find you very attractive and can’t explain how I really feel either. But this all moving too fast.


And then she got up, picked up her bag and was on her way out. When Ayman hurriedly ran towards her, pulled her to himself and supported her waist with his hand saying ” Celeste please let me in”  and then tilted his head.

         The End.

Watch out for chapter 5, next week Tuesday. Will Celeste let him in, either ways let’s play with our imaginations.

Love Seamless’may.


Will the volcano stay dormant?…*

Do I get livid at the era, I was born into.

Or perhaps get swoon with joy.

They say as people get older, they learn how to adapt to life.

Do we adapt to the wrong things or man over them.

* sigh *, do we follow trends rather than create our own inventions.

It baffles me why an eleven years old should trend on Instagram or Facebook, for the most appalling things. I wite them not, when the one’s who call themselves parents poses as just a figure head. The name is a title for them, they never act it. Perhaps just a few do.

When we ourselves that claim to be adults, spend time showing off our lies to the world. And because the viewers are not entirely different, they believe and go to extreme measures to be that way. 

All for what “NOTHING”, “NOTHING” , “NOTHING”.

IF you think spending quality time imitating other peoples shallow lifestyle is being trendy, than I would rather remain staid.

Remain Staid and be free, Remain staid and be myself,Remain staid and live my life however I want to, and take responsibilities as an adult should.

So let’s ask ourselves one simple question today! Will the ” volcano remain dormant or perhaps erupt.”

Either ways are we prepared for the outcome. Let us not let our life, hopes and dreams erupt right in front of our faces, leaving us hopeless, dreamless and with sleepless nights. Because if we do not ignore what another thinks you should be like, what the society thinks about the way we should exist. We would only loose ourselves. Don’t waste colours today, there is nothing wrong with being different from the norm. Embrace who you are, and live your life as long as you don’t hurt others,life will accept you and with time the society will. But what would hurt more is having to wear a mask everyday and hiding beneath the shadows, it kills gradually.

 Yes I tell it does kill, your personality, your uniqueness, your joy , your mind, your whole being, your very existence, everything that makes you “you”, everything that makes you who you are.

So please throwaway that mask and let life breathe upon you, allow yourself live a little, give yourself a chance to mark a mark and change lives. 

I leave you be…

Word of the day ” Labialism”


Drama beats Celeste!

​ Sunsets are beautiful, that subtle glow they give, the soft warmness felt on the skin. It’s so amazing. Absolutely beautiful! Celeste always said. Ooh how I would love to be wedded by sunset, It’s an amazing feeling!

  It’s a beautiful Monday evening, the most busy time of the week. Because a lot of clients do call for massages. And since Celeste is the only one who can give aromatherapy, she gets more jobs on monday. Mondays are great days for Celeste, more jobs, more usefulness, more money. She just loved the act of being useful, and having a well spent day, by making a difference in someone’s life even if its by relieving them of pain. Celeste left for her first job by 4:45pm, kalakuta already sent the details through an SMS, the address lead her to a tall high black gate with brick fenced compound. She knocked on the gate ” who be that” a faint masculine voice asked in pidgin. Then there was an answer at the gate a very light skinned short, skinny man opened the gate and answered ” yes! Wetin you want”, Celeste replied “I’m here to massage Mr Ayman Ahmad”. He stared at her face for a few seconds, and then he gawked at her repeatedly and said ‘ha madam na you! They don they wait for you’ in pidgin English. He let her in by moving aside, and then walked her to the living room. On getting in she met a beautiful plus sized woman with a bindi on her forehead. And then she hugged Celeste and said to her ‘ sweetheart we’ve been waiting for you! Hurry we’re late?

  Celeste wondered why she said( ‘ we’re late’ who are the ‘we’, it’s only me and I’m right on time so, what’s with this woman! Well weird clients’ she said to herself.) She followed her up the stairs everywhere looked magnificent all white and gold. It looked holy, it looked spotless, she couldn’t even touch the railings, the fear of getting it soiled. Pardon me ” I’m Aliyah, and you are” the woman with the bindi said, ‘Celeste! Celeste replied, nice to meet you ma’am!. So her steps where very gentle on the stairways rather then when she ran up and than the stairs at home. They got to a room and it was painted pink and the interior design had a touch on purple on everything, the pillows the chairs the curtains all had a touch of purple. As they got into the room a woman tall black model looking ushered her in ” you are late” she said, ” and pretty”. And then she said ” come sit, we need to do your Makeup! They’re waiting” Celeste bewildered and said . “Oh come on Celeste there’s no time” just don’t say a word it’s normal to be confused ” said Aliyah. And then the model looking lady did her make up so fast and in 15minutes, Celeste felt like a different person entirely. Dressed up in Sari and makeup with red lipstick. Celeste tried to speak again but she was shut up again. 

 Soon she found herself in another room with two men, the younger looked biracial, average height good looking and looked subtle, and the older man looked a lot like the younger one but skin was whiter and more pale. A help came in with a bottle of wine and a bottle of champagne with a couple of glasses. Celeste being fed up of the whole drama busted out saying, “what is all this, I’m only here to massage, not here for a movie audition”. They all gawked at her a few second and laughed, and the pale looking man said ” wow! You’re lucky son, she just met you and already she’s planning on giving you massages. Celeste was now so confused, “what’s happening, what’s going on! Celeste said,Aliyah replied ” ooouuu! Sassy, I love her already son. She’ll be a perfect wife”. Wife! Did you just say wife!. Celeste yelled in shock. Ooh, dear Ahmad help Celeste with some wine! Aliyah said.
 yelled in shock. Ooh, dear Ahmad help Celeste with some wine! Aliyah said.Ahmad filled the glass with wine, Aliyah handed it over to Celeste. Celeste stared at the glass, took her bag on was about walking out of the room when two muscular huge man, guarded the doorway. Aliyah said ‘dear Celeste I know how you feel I almost ran away too when I met Ayman’s father Ahmad, it’s only natural for the tension to get to you. So I prepared some bodyguard just in case. I see that we are exactly the same ” sweet!”

 Celeste walked back in took the glass of wine and gulped it all, and then nicely reached for the bottle and took a huge gulp of it. ‘Oh my goodness Aliyah, she’s just like you! That’s exactly what you did when we met’beautiful! Said Ahmad. Aliyah replied “yes honey,exactly! I love her already, fierce!

 Celeste thought to herself ( the perfect explanation for this is a movie , or comedy skit a prank by my cousin’s or something. Because this shit is fucking crazy,. So.I’ll play along, because I could be on TV right now, who knows).“So Celeste meet Ayman my dear son he’s a pilot with Qatar airways and so he travel’s all the time that’s why he’s still so handsome and single. But he’s amazing!”Aliyah said. Ayman replied ” hi, Celeste very nice to meet you, hopeful we can get to know each other better’.  ‘nice to meet you too’   Ayman! Celeste replied. Celeste your aunty said a lot about you ‘ Celeste replied‘ really, she did? She said quite a lot about you all too I guess!” Ahmad let’s leave Celeste and Ayman to talk some more! Aliyah said. “Sure honey” Ahmad replied they both left Celeste and Ayman to themselves.

Ayman:I’m half Nigerian and half Turkish! My father is Turkish my mum is Nigerian. 

Celeste: oh, really. Well I’m fully Nigerian?

“Celeste I’m so sorry about all these embarrassment ” Ayman said, “thank God somebody understands, that’s what I’ve been trying to explain to everyone. You did call  kalakuta for a massage didn’t you” Celeste replied. “Oh yes! I understand the act of forcing someone into a marriage because I am in such situation, and I really do not know what’s wrong with that man( Kalakuta) the therapist should be here by now! wait a minute’ Did you just ask if I called kalakuta for a massage!, how did you know about?

 Celeste: That’s what have been trying to tell everyone, but you a keep shutting me up? I’m supposed to be your therapist from Kalakuta!

 Ayman: Oh my goodness! Why didn’t you say anything? 

Celeste: ooh no, I tried, oh I really did try. Everyone was shutting me up, and your mum was crying to me tell me she doesn’t know if you’d fly one day and get lost in world. How she needs hope for you and bla, bla. It was hard to see her cry?

Ayman: really, it was hard to see her cry? How hard was it for you to say ‘ooh sorry I’m not who you’re expecting, I’m just a masseuse here on a job, and this is family business not my concern, my concern is my fucking job’ how hard could that have been?

Celeste: huh? So now you blame me, for being dragged into a confused environment, I didn’t know what was going on! Mr goody two shoes. You didn’t just expect me to go crazy and fight everyone. As a pilot I expect you to be exposed, opened minded and enlightened enough to understand that when you find yourself in crazy situation you remain calm. Which was exactly what I was doing, besides I thought this was a movie or comedy skit, or a prank who something. So please do me a favour and shut the fuck up!

Ayman: really you think, you an ordinary masseuse could be a famous star, just like that! How gullible are you?

Celeste: you’re just a proud arrogant man, I’m so filled with fret having to exchange words with you.

     At this point Ayman and Celeste are staring at each other in confusion, there is so much angry, confusion, eeriness in the atmosphere. The yelling from the voice attracted the attention of Aliyah and Ahmad. Aliyah busted in saying

Aliyah: Is everything alright we heard yelling.

Ayman: Oh, mademoiselle Celeste please do the honors and tell my sweet mother what the fuck is happening?

Celeste: You’re rude and stupid?

Aliyah: what! He’s a Royal you don’t use such words!

Celeste: That’s it all of the areallsick, I’m out.

  Celeste tried getting out, but the body guards stopped her. She yelledat them and started hitting them both on their chest to get out of her way.

Ayman: let her go, she’s a fraud!

Aliyah: What? What do you mean.

Ayman: oh, yes! Mum she’s an ordinary masseuse. She WS supposed to come massage me. I ordered for a massage at kalakuta’s and she works for him.

Ahmad: A masseuse! This is a Royal family my son will never stoop so low?

Aliyah: I’m so confused, I I I iiii…short of words.

      Celeste where red confusion and maybe tears, the embarrassment and unnecessary drama was too much for her to handle. She had never felt so belittled and lost. Her purse fell as she struggled with the body guards, she knelt on the floor and hurriedly pack her belongings into her purse.And ran down the stairs at this point she didn’t care about how graceful the stairways looked, or how careful she be with the wall not to stain them. She spanked her feet in a hurry on the stairways and touched the walls as she ran down the stairs. On getting down stairs she met an indian looking woman in  the living room arguing with the gateman, telling him how much the family is cursed. How are niece got into an accident because she’s being matchmaked with Ayman. And throwing a huge amount of money at him telling him she doesn’t want to be in a possession of a cursed money. And storming out of the house, the gateman hurriedly picked up the money and kept some on his pocket. He stoodup, stared at Celeste with a wide smile on his face saying in pidgin ” madam na condition make crayfish bend”( an adage in pidgin meaning in this context that “it’s because of my situation I’m stealing”). Celeste shook her head and walked out of the house. Getting outside the compound she stopped a motorcyclist and said to him. ” Take me home!, I say take me home “.

The man on the motorcycle stared at her with amusement ” na wa ooh, madam I don’t know your house ooh”.( really! I don’t know your house)

Celeste :I don’t care, just get me out of here now!

Motorcyclist: no walaha( no problem).

  Celeste left the premises and headed home, she stopped over at a liquor store and bought herself a bottle of tequila( silver). Got home played her favourite playlist mostly songs by “End sheeran” and “Chain smokers”. And then she said called her drinking buddy her cousin ” Rita” and Rita loves alcohol, the excitement on her face when she saw the bottle if tequila they danced and had shots finishing the whole bottle. To Celeste dancing has always worked for her, it has been her own way to letting out emotional, mental stress, confusion, sadness and hurtful feelings. 

 They both got drunk and blacked out, grnnnhh!grnnhh! Her phone rang.

It was morning, she managed to open her eyes but the call had cut off by then. 10 missed calls, all from kalakuta. “Celeste where’s my money, how can you not deliver my money or have you ran away with my money“… She couldn’t finish reading the text the light of the phone was getting to her eyes. She was having a really bad hangover.

Grnnh! Grnnh! Her phone rang again, it was kalakuta she picked the call. 

Kalakuta: So, you didn’t hear your phone ring? Sine yesterday you haven’t delivered the money? What is wrong with you? Is it because I told you you’re the best massage therapist I have? Don’t let it get to head? Give me my money? I need money. Because if you don’t bring the money today… 

  Celeste throw the phone underneath her pillow, and let the call on while kalakuta was still talking.

that man is such a girl” she said to herself.

 At this time the door bell rang, Lara answered to door and Alas! It was Ayman. 

Ayman: Hi, I’m Ayman Celeste forgot her wallet. May I see her, is she home?

Celeste, Celeste, Lara called. Celeste got up went to her door and bolted it.Mumbling to herself ” for goodness sake I have a hangover and I want to be let alone, is that so hard to ask, I’m sure she’s called me to help her make breakfast. I’m going no where”. And then she went back to sleep.*

Why do we keep wasting colour’s, we don’t have to be the same, we all don’t have to be good at the same things. Uniqueness is beautiful and should be embraced. 

All colours have their ways of affecting moods, and leaving a message and a combination of them brings beauty into light.

There is no fun in wasting colours, no fun at all!

There’s not much to learn on a plain white board, not much on that I tell.

So why waste colours and consume yourself in living like others and imitate the lifestyle of another. And burying what makes you “you”. What makes you different, what makes you unique, what makes you who you are!

If you’re one of those who have found it a norm to waste colours, change your lifestyle today. It sucks being lost in something that changes who you are for the worst or gets you stuck on one spot.

Stop wasting colours today!!

I leave you be..

Words of seamless may

Celeste ‘ drowned in dersires’.

    Celeste jerked up from her sleep, hurried into the bathroom and prepared for work with the hope that She’ll get a job today. She kept staring at her phone hoping that her boss will call for her service, it’s about 4pm and nothing; no call from her boss, no text messages from him she was a bit down spirited so she took a nap, within a few minutes her phone rang it was kalakuta! she was swooned. She picked up the phone eagerly and said “hello sir” with excitement and then he told her that she had a job in Yaba to massage a priest ‘ a priest!’ she exclaimed, her boss replied ” Yes Celeste a priest!” And then kalakuta sent her the address of the priest.

   On her way there, all she could think about was that she hopes the priest won’t ask anything funny like her previous client because it would completely change her faith as a Catholic. In an hour she arrived at st. Andrews Catholic church Yaba, when she got into the compound she panicked a lot her heart started racing as fast as an a man chased by a lion. She was directed by the security man to turn left he waited for her, he was in a short and a polo. She introduced herself as Celeste and his therapist for the day. He told her his name is “father Matthew ” and then they both went into his bedroom, Celeste fear grew when she entered his bedroom thinking about how it would completely ruin her perception about religion if he requested for anything funny, she thought to herself. Then father Mathew said to her ” see I hope you’re not here to just touchy touchy my body ooh, don’t just come and rub my body ooh. I already rubbed vasline this morning, I called for a massage because I’m a researcher I read a lot, and I haven’t been able to get any sleep even with meds so I hope this will work ooh. If not I’m not paying any 13,000 naira for just touchy, touchy”. Celeste was befuddled at his speech but then she replied him saying ” sir I’ll make sure I won’t just touchy touchy, I’ll give you a Swedish massage ” and then he replied “whatever that is, it better makes me sleep” . 

   Afterwards Celeste asked him to take of his clothes and then he insisted that he wanted his underpants on, she was happy with his decision with the thought that he was just might be different from the pervet clients. Celeste started the 60mins session of full body massage and then she thought to herself “should i punish him like Kalakuta said, since he’s Nigerian” then she started with deep tissue and then he said the pressure was a little to much but he liked it saying it’s “like sweet pain” and then yet again his statement left her befuddled, then she later added some Swedish which he liked very much. Then she spent a longer time giving him a scalp and head relaxing massage and that made him sleep off like a baby. After 10minutes she stopped and then he said ” ahn ahn! Nawa ooh, you know see say I dey sleep, do more, do more” and then she told him that a session is over and he begged for 30minutes extra so he could sleep more and then Celeste replied him saying he’ll need to pay extra for a scalp massage package for 4,000 and he said ” ahn ahnnn! that’s to much now, to just touchy touchy my head” and then she told him ” that’s it or nothing sir”. And then he replied “fine just do it” when she was done, he transferred the money to kalakuta’s bank account. She headed home afterwards, while she was in a bus back to Ogba ; where her cousin resides, her boss called and told her that there was a job at BLUE IVY hotel Victoria island she then took a bus to the hotel when she got the message containing the room number and the name of the client. 

She got to the hotel and asked the receptionist for Mr Raymond Smith at Room 007 and then she was asked to go to first floor. When she got to the front of the hotel room her heart prayed a fast prayer, hoping that the day will be free of pervert and then thought ‘oh well, at least his name doesn’t sound Indian, he’s probably British‘ and then she knocked, to her surprise a tall blonde reddish man was standing at the door. He said “oh hi I’m Raymond you must be celeste”, she replied “ yes sir I am” and then she walked in and she asked what his nationality was and he said he was German and that he’s a construction worker and he has been in the sun all day. She thought to herself that must be why he looks red, but then he was cute she thought to herself. She tried not to look hopelessly at his face, but her eyes failed her. The height, the hair, the beards, that smile, the perfectly arrannged set of teeth all that couldn’t be ignored. He was a like a golden trophy right in front of her. Those broad shoulders, he’s healthy looking stomach muscles’ everything about him was sexy’ she thought to herself. As she massaged him he kept smiling, she became so uncomfortable and started sweating profusely.  He was a bit chatty and then he said’ I told your boss to send a beautiful girl, I didn’t know he was going to send the most beautiful girl he has’ and then she was flattered for a second and smiled but she thought for a second ‘ oh my God! He must be another pervert’ she started the session with him and he was still so chatty asking why she isn’t a model or something and she told him that she was too shy for stuff like that and they make her uncomfortable. She was now looking very worried and stressed,  (yes she was stressed! She was caught between her desire to lkiss those lips and the thought that it could end badly. It was a fight, yes a fight! A fight between desire, wants and needs.)  He noticed how oddly uncomfortable she seemed, and he asked ” are you okay! you’re sweating a lot. But the the AC is on, and its on the lowest temperature”  (but no she wasn’t okay! Her rumbled her feet twitched she had that feeling of suppressing desires that were about to erupt. Could she consume them, or will they consume her?) And so she said, ‘please shut that beautiful mouth! Raymond was in shocked! And wanted to confirm if he heard her right” so he replied ” I’m sorry’ what! “. Celeste replied stammering ” I I iiii said you have beautiful looking mouth ” . Raymond was red with more red with appreciation saying “thanks” .

And then he asked how old she was and said to her “tell me more about yourself”  Celeste couldn’t stare at him any longer, she feared for what she was considering to do, she immediately excused herself to the bathroom. Looking at a reflection if herself in the mirror. She said ” What the fuck is wrong with you woman, he’s just a man an ordinary man. Now put yourself together “. She got back to Raymond, Raymond still having that smile. She sighed  ‘ ppttt now I’m getting tired of that’ she thought to herself.  “I’m leaving sir”  she said, “what are you doing tonight” Raymond asked. And she said to him ‘home with husband and kids probably doing laundryand he said but, but , buuutttt you’re only 23 how, hoooooooooww cooooo; never mind he stammered” and then he gave her the 13,000 and a 8,000 naira tip. Celeste! Raymond called, that man that’s got you’ he’s a lucky man. Celeste was so grateful but she wondered ‘ what kind of person he was and maybe it might have been wrong to shut him out completely and lied about husband and kids, at least that’s what Rita her favorite cousin would say’. Celeste called kalakuta if he was in the office, she went over there so she could get her own share of the money and give kalakuta his. But kalakuta was a bit crazy as usually especially when he’s dealing with money. It took a lot work before Celeste was able to collect the extra 3000 naira that father Mathew sent to him. Then he told her that he was going for a Yoni massage and then she asked what that was and then he said a vaginal massage and Celeste was extremely bewildered.

She thought to herself, “how many things does kalakuta really do” as a pastor he also gives yoni massages! Those are two completely different things. And then Celeste asked kalakuta what really is your passion and he said helping people in monetary ways, you gwaped at him for a while and said “monetary way”. He replied “yes! I love moni and who no like better thing” his words in pidgin. She looked at him with so much pity and said her goodbyes.

On getting home the first thing Rita asked was ” how much did you make today” Celeste replied “some money, why?” . Then Rita started sobbing, Celeste was so flustered and wondered what she said wrong. Until Rita spilled the beans ” erm erm e… it’s my boyfriend ooh, he has been caught by the police during he’s weed selling business, and now he’s locked up I need some money for his bail. I can’t leave without Tola he’s my world I love him more than I love sex itself, I mean I would trade orgasm for my love for him. That how bad it is, I’ll hurt myself if I can’t get him out, I love him more then I love my perfectly symmetrically round pointy boobs. I just love him soooo...” Then Celeste cut in throwing 7000 naira at Rita saying ‘ please shut…just shut it! I don’t want to hear anymore. Just take the money, take it! Just take it all, but please shut up…” And then Rita collected the money happily saying ‘your the best’, my Tola will be out of jail soon. Everything will be perfect again even my sex life, yay!! Rita said storming out of Celeste room to save her supposed prince Charming.

Celeste stared at the door which Rita passed through with so much fret and she said to herself. “Well my sex life hasn’t been so good lately, at least she has a sex life”.

    Thoughts ran through her head, thoughts of him kissing the sole of her feet , oh how that tickles her so badly that she loves it, and his hands alone doing the magic of making her shiver at fear ,  fear of being devoured, fear that nothing will be left of her. Fear that she won’t spend not one night without the thought of his touch. He’s body pressing upon her soft honey skin the contrast of his caramel supple skin upon her honey soft skin, lights up her mind and it was perfect. Especially the thoughts of him troding and gliding in and out of her. Made her long perfectly beautiful legs shiver.

Celeste, Celeste! Lara called, Celeste jerked out of her day dreams and went to Lara’s room, on her way she thought to herself. “Girl you need to get laid”.
“Yes! We all have desires, desires, we think of the good, the bad and the crazy. We are drowned in them atimes or they appear to be the hapaxanth in our lives . But then sometimes I wonder, only wonder if some of those desires will consume us. Or we consume it all, you never really know. Whoever is strong enough to consume the other ” You! Or your desires! Life is like a fast train sometimes you have to stay alert to not miss your stop. Perhaps we won’t, or maybe we will. Perhaps there is nothing for some of us at the end stop, our hope, spring of opportunities and achievement could be along the way. They say there is a sign, yes they! Is there really. Or do we wait on a fluke for help. Do we! Do we really”.

          I leave you be “words of seamless may”…

Word for the day “HAPAXANTH”.

Celeste is back!!

Hey guys sorry it took me for ever to post another page, but life has been keeping me busy! Yea, I said that with a smirk on my face.

Was able to get some more stories from Celeste’ she sure has some very interesting stories…







Adventures of a masseuse living in Lagos…

Adventure has different meanings to different inviduals, to some people adventure is fun all the way, to some it’s a mixture of fun, excitement, worries, heartaches and some shitty things life showers you with. But to Celeste adventure is encountering risk or bold undertaken and in turn enjoying the experiences that follows. In her final year in University of Ilorin all Celeste could think of is doing something for herself in a city like Lagos, where no one cares about the next person other than themselves. Everyone finds some kind of means to survive. The economy of the country was bad since the prices of crude oil was falling and so she thought of leaving Ilorin to come back to Lagos to fight for her stomach. So she decided to move to Lara’s place her oldest cousin and a single mum living in Ogba not far from ikeja., she decided to stay there because going home wasn’t an option, since her mother believed that she should only consider getting a job when she receives her university degree. And geography wasn’t a course of study that intrigues her much. Lagos was an entirely different place from Ilorin but she thought she knew Lagos well enough since she spent her early years in the ikorodu, the outskirts of Lagos. But the truth is she has no idea what was in front of her, she never went out alone all through her time in Lagos without the help of a personal driver
So the idea of jumping and shuttling buses was
something she wasn’t used to, but that was her new life now.
Being 23 was a big step for Celeste the thinking that she’s an adult now and she needed to gain her independence. She decided to check online for spa jobs and she found one, such a big deal for her, she said to herself ” finally I can make my own money ” but she was yet to go for the interview. It was a mobile massage service, she called the number linked to the advert on “jiji.com” the website for job seekers and then a man answered the call and called himself ” kalakuta” and then told her to come to Ikeja for the job interview. She was excited but at the same time overwhelmed, she started to panic later at night when she thought about the Employers name “kalakuta” who bears that ; she said to herself, “I hope he’s not a scam”. Before going for the interview she made up her mind not to pay any kind of fee if she was asked to. The next morning by 10 am she went for the interview, on getting there she saw other applicants at the reception then her confidence melted like ice thrown in hot water. It came to her turn and on meeting the employer ” kalakuta ” she was bewildered. She imagined a huge, tough looking, scary guy. But then her imagination chose to fail her. He was an average height handsome, good looking man. And then the confidence that traveled decided to take a Stoll back to her, so now she could talk boldly without fear and stammering. He introduced himself and then asked if she had any experiences and she said ” well I’ve been doing this for about three years now” which was a lie she had only been a mobile masseuse for a year. But then when Rita her favorite cousin who claims to know exactly how things work in Lagos , was prepping her for the interview. She told her that you need to act like you own the job, take control say you’ve been doing this since you were a baby. But well she knows that saying she has been a masseuse since she was a baby wasn’t going to earn her any job. She decided to say something a little less dramatic. Well after the interview kalakuta asked for a massage to know how good Celeste was, so she started an hour session she wanted to give him a relaxing massage but he said it made him sleep off and that if she noticed he had a “erection” and then he told her to aviod the nipples area when she’s giving a massage and that Nigerians believe that massage is some form of punishment, so whenever she massaging a client she should punish them. Celeste was a bit flustered because she felt the point of giving a relaxing massage is to relax the nerves, but then she insisted she would give a deep tissue to most of her clients that don’t have any preference. But then she just told kalakuta “okay I will do just that, I’ll make sure I punish them”. And then he said ” yes, exactly do just that! That would work.” Afterwards he talked about the payment method and she said per session is fine, so they both agreed on 5000 naira if she pays for her transport and 4000 naira if he drops her off at the client’s. Celeste was quite happy with the deal so she went back to her cousin’s and shared to awesome story.
Since she was to resume work the next day, her boss (kalakuta) called her for a job in Springfield hotel at the airport. Kalakuta sent her the address and the name of the client, being her first job with kalakuta mobile massage company she was quite nervous because she didn’t want to ruin it. So she took a bike to the hotel because she was running out of time for the appointment, the appointment was for 3:30pm and it was about 3 pm already. On getting there she asked at the reception for Mr Ashyira at room 419. And then she was asked to use the elevator to the 4th floor, she was glad that she got there at exactly 3:30pm and she gave a soft knock on the door with a sticker saying ” Room 419″ and for a second it seemed weird to her that a room number will be “419” because in Nigeria “419” was a term used for fraudsters and scammers. Within a split of a second the door was opened by a short , stunted looking Indian man. He introduced himself as Ashyira and she did the same by saying “I’m Celeste and I’ll be your masseuse for today” and then Celeste started the one hour massage session. What got her astonished was the fact that Ashyira went stack naked in front of her and immediately she looked in another direction, she was a bit shy ; she just wasn’t ready for that. And then when she did that he asked ” are you shy” and she replied ” no sir”. And then she started the one hour session, Ashyira preffered to watch football while having a massage rather that listening to classical music. He has a nice hair ; Celeste thought to herself. And then Celeste kept asking if the pressure was enough or not, rather than punishing “since he’s not Nigerian ” she thought to herself.. And besides Ashyira wanted a soft and tender touch. He kept compliment her that her hands were soft and then he told her she could sit if she wanted to, she said “thank you sir”. After the full body massage he started complimenting her waist saying ” you have a lovely waist please can I see it” and then she replied” no sir, you can’t” he then started begging, saying if you offer me a little something I’ll give you something valuable in return”. And she was like what!! So he said I want a blowjob she said I’m really sorry I don’t offer such services and he asked for a hand job, went to his safe and brought out 25,000 naira. Celeste was baffled at how badly he wanted a hand job replied saying “no sir I don’t offer such services “. And then he said ” I’ll make it 30,000 naira ” posed his naked body in her face and started begging for a hand job but she refused saying “I’m a married woman” she lied to him. And then he said “who cares no one will know about this”. But she refused again he was furious gave her the 13,000 naira for the full body message and the she walked away. But she was so irked and filled with fret, all Celeste could think of was is this what she was going to go through all the time since for her first job she had to massage a pervet. But then she also thought about the money, how it would have been quite useful. But she knew she wouldn’t be happy after the money is all gone, and the urge to want to do it again will arise. She consoled herself with those thoughts. Afterwards she went to her bosses office and gave him his share of the money Kalakuta was excited as always whenever he’s given money and then back to her cousin’s. When she got home and narrated the whole event to Rita, all Rita could see was the money celeste waved goodbye to. And she said to celeste ” how stupid are you to let go of that much MONEY” But she said to Rita” why would I, that’s fucked up”

As Celeste laid on bed thoughts danced through her mind, and  her inner voice cried out ” what really does life have to offer, that I need to sacrifice the only thing that is left in my possession my (self pride) and strip myself of all the things that make me who I am for something that has no life, no breath, no wits.

Beautiful words are enjoyed by graceful people.

Hey guys, I’ve not written in a while because I’ve been working on something different. So I came up a story where I can use my puns as well. It’s about the experiences of a young masseuse living in Lagos. It’s about the good, the irking and the ridiculous things she met along a path. And what makes it exclusive is it’s more of nonfiction than fiction. It has a lot of real experiences in it.

Well I do hope you enjoy reading it. The chapters are going to be in three batches ” Chapter 1a” , “Chapter 1b” , ” Chapter 1c” e.t.c.  sit back and enjoy some playful words…

Love Sunflowerapril..







I lay my thoughts on a stream…*

Why should there be such a need for shrinking the hoping self, and why must so much despair be calmly embracedIs so much protection necessary for life itself?

This blunt puns run through my mindmaybe it’s because some of us have been disappointed a lot and we conclude to be cynics, when by ourselves we fill our heads with beautiful dreams and beliefs. But in reality we stand tall and claim to be cynics, because we feel it’s a lot safer to be a cynic. It’s a lot safer to try not to believe in things everyone believes in so just incase it doesn’t work out,we don’t get disappointed.
We suppress the urge to lovedream big, to have faith in something. But here‘s my thought these days ; though disappointment might be easily bridged, but then there is a whole lot more out thereso therefore there is a chance for faith, there is a chance for love, there is a chance for beliefs.Perhaps it’s just fear, fear of failurefear for heartbreakfear for life itself.
The truth of it all is life is scary at the same time blissful, so let‘s live a little and sometimes leave our cynical side to sleep. And also keep it awake when necessary because, the bottom of an ocean is beautiful but stay too long you’ll drown. So yes, I lay thoughts on a stream but I hope that the negative thoughts are the heaviest so they’ll all sink away and leave me be with the blissful ones.
leave you be….

Shield the salt from the rain…*

Children are essential, they are beautiful beings that we produce to re-write our future, to be better than us. They are a product of our existence love and lifehaving a child can make a cold heart warm, having a child can completely change a cynic into a believer. A child creates hope, faith and can completely make a person be swoon about their existence and life. A child is an existence of our own being, and a continuation of one’s history. A child poses as a future, a hope , a better us. 
Children are beings with no worriesalways chirpyrarely sad. They bring light and add colour to our world. But when you have such beautiful creatures and you cannot or refuse to the train them into what you truly want them to bethen you have failed! Whether you have a successful business and you stuck a house full of money, all those material things can fade away with a blink of an eye. What a creature like that deservesis an ocean full of love, and while growing up. when he (she) begins to loose his(her) innocence, because life would strip that off one way or another. Perhaps the innocence fades away because they grow and life robbs them of it, though life gives but it also steals. A thief that’s what life is. A thief that steals with pride, without shame and with authority. As parents we are supposed guardian angels, because most of us has had our own share fair of painheartache and joy. We are meant to stand tall and help guide the young lambsnot make rules all the time or neglect. Some of us curb our kids too much and seclude them from the world, some of us do it out of lovewell while others because of what people might think. But it definately will backfire, for how long can you curb a being not an object and besides one that’s full of life
Also children are our heritage how can you neglect someone of great importance and qualitydue to things that maybe matter but are not important. You neglect your child, because of your business. You threw away an entire estate of gold for a piece of silver. Everyone knows that gold has to go through fire before it glittersso why neglect that for a piece of silver, we all know silver goes through fire to glitter. Some what sense does it make, when after all you’ll be going through the same process. What sense is their in abandoning something that’s worth more for a single piece of silver
Yes! it won’t be easy all the time but we need to take a long look at our lives, and try to balance between the things that are more important and those that are less. Between the things that matter and those that really matter, to learn to differentiate between our wants and needs.
We neglect a gift given with love, for things that can all go away in a secondPerhaps that’s why only a few in this generation have real love inside of them or experience real and sincere lovecompared to past generations. Because we call ourselves parents and we couldn’t care less, if someone that we call our life and our futureis in disarrayJust for our selfish interest, and because we have become so selfish, shallow mindedmyopic and unreasonableUnreasonable because what reasonable person, ignores a being of such great value for a mere objectsNow we spend our time trying to impresspeople who don’t care and forget those that truly care.
Take a look at this generation, and ask yourself how many kidsteenagers are clean enough not to have the stain of guilt on them. Do you wite them, how do you think a lost lamb would act without the help of it’s mother, flustered! That’s exactly how it would actWell, you grown ups, always explain your disgust for how children of this generation has turned out, and you forget that you were once soft mesh of blood bursting through mother holes and yes! You grew with time, but at those times you needed guardiance to grow properly . But then what have you done to prevent this, or change the flustered lives of this beautiful creatures. Than spending quality time complaining and getting livid. What have you done to make a change rather that wite the young and flustered.
Life is short that we know, and so being happy is a necessity. We might be sad sometimes but then life is too short to stay sad. So it is very irking to see someoneso young struggling with life and missing out on the quiescence of being a child and growing up, because of a failed and selfish parent. So I urge you pull off those shades, or jerk from your slumber and open your eyes to the reality which is to “shield the salt from the rain, these young beings are like salt they add taste to our lives, but we all know water can terminate the existence of salt.

I leave you be…

Word for the day- INCONGRUOUS

Don’t let the “SUN” stay bruised*…

Violence is any action intended to cause destruction, pain or suffering. It could be physical, verbal or emotional. Who comes to mind when we hear DOMESTIC VIOLENCE? ……….. WOMEN. Although Women are the most common victims of domestic violence, we are truthfully not the only victims

One early morning, I came across a poem pasted on the window of some store front while I was serving the father land. The paper on which it was typed was tattered and rough but the words written on it never faded. And its title; THE IRRITATING COMPANION still stood gallant. Most people there could have easily overlooked it but I couldn’t not because I knew what was written on it, but because something so odd couldn’t have passed my curious eyes. The poem goes thus;

Whenever I wake in the morning

That I will set my eyes on my companion

Her presence will often disgust my sight

That sadness and anger will become my immediate plight.
. This has become my often habit

Especially when I have no penny in my pocket

For she will always need money

To make her body as sweet as honey

And when I will not provide it

Then she must nag me all night.
I have never liked her attitude

No matter the weather or altitude

And she will always plague my life

With her tongue that will often be as sharp as a butcher knife.
She often compares me to my friend John Bull

Telling me that is bank account is fat

That mine is as empty as a dry pool

Then she would reply to me as a poor church rat.
For these, I have never been happy

Staying or being together with her

For her behavior will always be nasty

Making my body temperature higher.
And now I have gone hiding

In a distance far away land

Where she can never find me

Or see my face that is now smiling.
I have no clue of who wrote this sad but beautiful poem. But his words are words of hurt, pain and heartbreak. His irritating companion as he so meekly put it didn’t do what every woman should do for their partners; BUILD HIM instead she broke him. Nagging is a form of verbal domestic abuse. And a few percentage of men in the world have to live through this. When words of discouragement and disappoinment are being rained down it kills the Ego be you man woman or child. Hurtful words from those you love knows not who you are. It comes crashing down and crushes your soul. Men are naturally egocentric and when subdued in an abusive relationship it kills their ego slowly. It lowers their self esteem and belittles them. Nobody likes a nagger. Nobody likes to be belittled. We have but two choices, we either MAKE or BREAK our man.

All men are not the same, some stronger than others. some the tenacity of their endurance knows no bounds and others just simply lack it. Dosmetic violence I believe is a Cycle. GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT. Nagging women sometimes dig their own graves. It is just a matter of time before their partner snaps. Some men after being subdued to verbal violence endures and well becomes miserable until he leaves the TOXIC relationship like our ANONYMOUS writer. Others less enduring would beat the living day light out of their partners, with the hopes that they would beat it out of her system or maybe, just maybe it feels good to hurt her back.

But you don’t nag you begin to say, you love him, you care for him, you support him but still you are his personal punching bag. Beautiful lady, I urge you to get out fast. You owe him nothing, well not your life at least. Some men after being faced with utter frustration at work or outside their relationship they bring it all back in. He thinks beating on his partner makes him strong and more in control whereas He is timid and insecure. He has no control out in the world, He is not happy at work, His boss gives him shit or worst still he doesn’t even have a job. His friends are smater, better looking and happier. Things are not going his way. He is a sore loser, he is angry and frustrated. He comes home and takes it out on you. He sees you and thinks i should have control here, she is weaker(physically ofcourse). He beats on you like the monsters haunting him would go up in flames. GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT. Save yourself and get out of the toxic relationship, you definitely can do better.Don’t wait till you have been crippled. Domestic violence is a cycle but it can be broken. Just like a chain, it has a weak link. You just got to get out. And always remember, You are strong, you are smart, you are beautiful.

Domestic abuse can be physical or mental abuse, if you are in a relationship with someone who does not respect your decision, your dream , your opinion. Then why settle for less, why settle for someone who would gradually kill your self esteem. Life is short, it makes no sense spending quality time being unhappy. Whether you’re a male or female, though we might be different in body structure, sense of reasoning. But we all have one heart, one soul, one life. Everyone deserves to be happy, they say happiness is a choice that’s a lie. It is a Paramount , I wasted quality time in an unhappy relationship. And now all I can think of is the time, the resources I wasted. The beautiful people I pushed away because of the sacrifices I made for someone who wasn’t worth it. So I have been an object to a mental domestic abuse it almost killed me. A friend once said that worst kind of domestic abuse is the mental one, because then the scars cannot be seen, and most people suffer in silence.

I urge you, get out of any relationship that makes you feel lesser, physically, psychologically and emotionally. If you think that you cannot do better, that you are nothing without him or her. Well do yourself a favour, take a break for a while meet different people and different culture. Everyone has a match, it might take a while, and it might not be a perfect relationship, but it would be worth it. To feel good about yourself, to be loved sincerely and passionately. Know that life is not always negative, there is a whole lot out there, so decide to be happy and “don’t let the sun stay bruised”

I leave you be….
