City of Love (2)

    By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda The time for the date approached and I made my way to the restaurant. We had agreed to meet in public because I did not want to end up meeting a serial killer or something just because we had a connection. He hugged me and kept telling me over and over how amazing I […]

Consequences (4)

    By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda The sirens of the police sounded doubly loud in the quiet night. Peter was just entering into his car outside Diane’s house when they pulled up to the driveway. Let me see your hands, put your hands where we can see them. He raised his hands slowly, confused about what was happening. You are […]

Consequences (3)

By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda Avoiding Peter and Diane became second nature to Sue following their meeting. She blocked their calls and pretended not to be home anytime they came around. She had expected things to be harder since she spent every waking minute with either or both prior to their betrayal. Knowing their schedules served a purpose though. She picked […]

Consequences (2)

By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda She wanted to hurt him the way she had been hurt. The need ate away at her inside and for once she wanted to be on the winning side.

Consequences (1)

  By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda She set out to teach a lesson. She wanted to make him tremble, shiver, doubt his charm and place in her life.

NON FIRST DATE (6)

  By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda There’s a thin line between following our instincts and over reacting. In a relationship, the difference between the two often drives couples apart.

Alcoholics Anonymous (3)

    By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda I soon realized my new flame liked drinking just to get drunk. He drank before breakfast, in the middle of the day and before coming to see me.

Alcoholics Anonymous (2)

       By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda I want to ask you, for a moment, to picture what an alcoholic looks like. Does this person have bloodshot eyes? Do they have disheveled hair? Do they move with a bottle everywhere? Could it be that person next to you who seems to enjoy having a good time every once in a […]

Non First Date (5)

By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda: I thought when you travelled, that would be the beginning of a new chapter for us. At first I was terrified, scared and worried. Our relationship was young and we hadn’t been separated for any long lengths. Longest we had gone without seeing each other was a week and even then we had been texting and […]
