THE MILLENNIAL: FEMME FATALE CHRONICLES-PART 3

  If is aesthetically pleasing to see a pair of heels on a shoe rack. One firmly upright and foreboding while the other lopsided, lost its balance and fell to its side, but just as lethal, if not more. With such a picture in mind, we must all agree that women are one of the […]

THE MILLENNIAL: FEMME FATALE CHRONICLES-PART 2

I recently came by ‘FemiNazi’ and marveled at what a distasteful word it is. Let’s not even speak of how unintelligent it sounds, but focus on the horrid comparison given to feminists.

It, supposedly, is the best day of your life, your mother is crying on some expensive linen kerchief specifically bought from some posh shop for this very purpose, your father is grumpy in the back seat of the car, his hair closely cropped, and his favorite stripped shirt and cotton pants exchanged for the three […]

Chapter Four “Who? Who is asking about me” Najah asked Munir the waiter “That guy over there” he pointed a long thin hand at the rake sitting two tables away.

In Love and War – Chapter 4

Chapter Four As soon as they got out of the presidential palace, Yusuf pulled a page out of the fast and furious and in a few sleek moves, lost the security detail assigned to his friend who sat in the backseat cheering him on and telling him to go faster. “I’m buying you lunch today” […]
