Up My Alley [Blogversary Edition]

Banteke loves my hands on approach on his jobs. I left his yacht with a new mission; looking around for a ride option, I went for a bike down the lot.

My mission was to meet an Asian chef at the alley behind the Avenue’s drugstore.

The FX Stealth fighter bike stole in on him as he talked on his mobile.

“Give it up dude, ya phone?”

“I ain’t no nagger and you’d have to make me”

A jab on the scrotum, the mobile flew into my hands.

Mounting the bike I rode through the course of the alley, I love this job!

The prompt brings to mind a scene in the Grand Theft Auto [GTA 4], which I just described above.


Today is the combination of my birthday as well as my blogversary [blog became two years old] and I wish to roll my gratitude to some really wonderful readers


For being that BIG sister to me and the highest commenter on this blog your kind devotion is flattering and appreciated thank you.


Well, the freshly pressed led me to your blog. I am still amazed at the attention I get from you despite your many followers you still give up time to peek into my world. My gratitude is here recorded.


If Susie is the godmother of my blog, Doug is the godfather. He has a way of reading more meaning to a flashfiction and getting right into the soul of the writer. He has done this for me, even called me out on not a few occasions and gave his correction, suggestions et al with love. Thank you dear Doug!

My first Nigerian follower…Thank you for those days of encouragement and love. I’ve missed your frequent posting though, and I pray life smiles at you and the family.

Sandra Crook

Sandra is that one person that surprises you with reviews least on your mind and makes your works glow even in your own eyes. Dear ma, thanks for your generosity.

Our anchor who has taken charge of the bus since Madison, she also took up new relationships and maintained same as genuinely as she can.

My own sister! In a twist of irony you are only next to Celestone [readinpleasure] on my comments log in just a few months of acquaintance. Just when I thought my blog is not for the Nigerian audience, well you’re not strictly Nigerian in that sense. Your kind devotion is appreciated, thank you!

A word goes to Madison Wood the originator of Friday Fictioneers, whose birthday is 15th November and Russel, that I called the clown on our bus, 16th November…Long life and happy endings!

Still in the spirit of the celebration, some of my finest flash fictions here you should click on…They are my gift to you. You may drop comments on anywhere else as your present to me. I appreciate you all!

STUCK: the other side of Valour

  1. Happy Birthday Charles and Happy Bloggiversary! I’ve really enjoyed reading your work over the years. Time flies!
    Thanks so much for the shout. Have a piece of cake for me!

  2. Not familiar with GTA, but familiar enough with this kind of activity, sadly. A different take on the prompt from you this week Charles. Nicely done. And thanks for the mention… it seems a long time ago that you first came to FF. 🙂

  3. Belated happy birthday, Bro! May God continue to shine His Blessings on you. 🙂 A big thank you for the shout out. What are relations for, if not support and loving each other? 🙂

  4. Happy birthday & blogversary Charles! I hope you had a great day.

    @shout out, I’m almost famous- yay! Thank you Charles, I like being here. Keep writing & I’ll keep reading. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you.

  5. Dear Charles,

    Happy birthday/blogversary and thank you for your encouraging words. You were here to welcome me when I joined Friday Fictioneers and have been a continued support. Indeed, I’ve found some lasting relationships here. 😉

    Thank you and Shalom,


  6. Dear Charles,

    Happy Blogversary and Birthday! You are kind to mention me in your post afterwards. I see in you a soul unafraid to push the limits of your craft and search for new ways to express yourself. I have tried to help where I can and correct or bring your attention to items/areas where critical focus on your part will show you how to better accomplish what you originally intended. I don’t do this for many because they seem to mostly want to write fast and not devote time to sharpening the blade.

    I wish you many more years of blogging and will always have my eye on you.
