Does Dabaru go straight to hell? You decide!

You recall I said there'll be an eBook for Cupid's Risk? I have started compiling it and that is going well so far. The eBook should be ready by the first couple of weeks in July for your summer reading. To help wrap things up nicely, we'll need an epilogue. Our epilogue will be in the form that is seen in some movies. You know, the type where they list the character with two or three sentences detailing what happened to them in future? Yeah, that one.

I have listed our major characters below. Pick any number of characters you want and write a maximum of three sentences each of what you think they get up to. I will announce the winners whose submissions will go into the eBook. In case of ties, there will be votes to decide.

To make this more interesting. Be among the first ten to post your comment with an epilogue entry and receive any chapter of your choice in A Heart to Mend, FREE! To enter for this, put EPILOGUE at the beginning of your comment and state the chapter you want, 1 - 21.

So let's do this folks. As for me, I know that Dabaru will surely go to Kirikiri for life, lol. Have a great weekend all.


IPHEY: A 25 years old lady who recently moved to Lagos from Port Harcourt with a new job in Diamond Bank.

CHINEDU: Iphey's love interest. They were introduced and met through a blind date where he confessed his hell raising past.

AISHA: Iphey's best friend who linked her up with Chinedu. She is married and wants Iphey to be settled too.

NGOZI: Iphey's older sister. She is married but her husband has been missing for the past three years.

MAMA IPHEY: Iphey's mum. She is of the meddling and match-making type.

JAMES: Ngozi's missing husband. It has been shown that he actually abandoned his family due to financial woes.

OBI: Iphey's six years old nephew and Ngozi's son. He is asthmatic.

HABIB: Aisha's brother and also a close friend to Chinedu. He works as an officer in the EFCC.

BISI: Iphey's colleague at work. She pretends to be a friend but stabs Iphey in the back.

FUNMI: Iphey's immediate boss. She is jealous and uses Iphey's inexperience on the job to get back at her.

AYO: The branch manager at Iphey's office. He does not hide his hots for Iphey and this makes his previous lover, Funmi, even madder at Iphey.

OTUNBA: A Suitor who starts courting Ngozi, Iphey's sisters a couple of years after the disappearance of her husband. Their mother does not like him.

ALHAJI GALADIMA: Chinedu's benefactor. A police officer who works with informants willing to give details of criminal activities.

GBENRO: An informant and former colleague of Chinedu while he lived a dangerous life.

DABARU: An Ajegunle gang boss. Chinedu's former leader in criminal activities.


  1. EPILOGUE...

    James...Thanks to Chinedu's efforts he has finally been freed to the ghost of his messy past. He finally worked up the courage to return to his family. He pleads for his wife's Ngozi's forgiveness and promises to never let her down again.

    Ngozi...Her husband finally returns home after 3 long years and she doesn't know what to do or think. After going through a whirlwind of emotions, some advice from her sister Iphey and her mendling mom she finally agrees to take him back; especially for her son Obi's sake.

    Obi...After being reunited with his father James, Obi suffers another illness and is admitted to the hospital for treatment. Unfortunately he looses his life after a week of relentless efforts of the medical staff.

    Iphey...After various events (the run in with the gang, Obi's death, etc)and confirmations in which Chinedu has proven his love for her, Iphey agrees to spend the rest of her life with Chinedu. They go on to set up a foundation in the memory of her nephew and a job development/scholarship program to keep young men off the streets and aid them in building solid foundations.

  2. Ohhh Blessing, Obi dies? Hmmm.... I love the others.

  3. Kai... Blessing stole my shine... LOL... OK, Let's go there... :)


    Iphey and Chinedu: After the dramatic events of the kidnapping, our love birds decide to postpone the wedding, in order to get their bearings. They are still together and even more in love than ever before.

    Ngozi and Otunba: Following James' death, Otunba is of great comfort to Ngozi. A relationship bloomed and they are currently engaged. Otunba is currently trying to beat Obi on their new Nintendo Wii. :)

    Mama Iphey still wants more grand children, especially from Iphey. :)

    Aisha and Habib remain good friends of the family.

    Ayo and Funmi: Both are implicated in the mass-sacking og bank officials by the Nigerian Central Bank. They are currently unemployed but working through their relationship issues together, trying to see where it takes them.

    Alhaji Galadima and Gbenro continue to work with the authorities to uncover criminal activity in and around Lagos.

    Hope I covered the important people...

  4. Oh, by the way... I think we all got chapter one for free, so I would like chapter two of "A Heart to Mend", please... :) And how could I forget... Dabaru is definitely in jail after evidence linking him to a cold murder case is uncovered by Habib's team. He is in Kirikiri for life.

  5. Gbenro: Is gets a get-out-of-bondage free card for helping Chinedu, and since his greatest fear is not facing eternal jail time. He is able to get his act together; he gets polished and lands a job as Alhaji Galadima's high-class chauffeur and personal assistant. It's only the beginning of his great life.

    Bisi: proves herself to be a conniving b^&*h (please replace this in the eBook), and steals Otunba from Ngozi. By the time Ngozi finds out that Otunba has been stepping out on her, Bisi is 4-months pregnant with Otunba's child. Ngozi is heart broken (Mama Iphey is not), but she finds solace in the unlikely arms of Habib.

    James: gets his debt forgiven, and is able to live a normal life again. He decides that he has put his family through enough, and gives Ngozi space to live her life as she pleases. He and his son, Obi develop the best father-son relationship he could have dreamed of.

    I think Iphey should quit her job too.

  6. Oh, BTW, I'm third!

  7. I don't think I'm as creative as you all;
    I'd just give it a try yeah? Just for the fun of it, lol..


    James, does not die but is gravely injured, is hospitalized and from there reunites with his family after apologising and explaining himself

    Chinedu- gets to marry the girl of his dreams, Iphey

    Iphey- Marry Chinedu but stops hiding her feelings..

    Alhaji Galadima- it is seen though a policeman is actually a kingpin of another gang and wants to centralize the hierarchy so that he becomes the one and only kingpin with eyes and ears also in the police force, he is exposed by dabaru and is arrested and confesses. Saving Chinedu was just his only good deed.

    Habib- is promoted for his outstanding job for the EFCC.

  8. Just noticed my typos:

    *Gbenro - gets a get-out-of-bondage free card for helping Chinedu, and since his greatest fear is now facing eternal jail time. He is able to get his act together; he gets polished and lands a job as Alhaji Galadima's high-class chauffeur and personal assistant. It's only the beginning of his great life.

  9. You guys have very good imaginations. I think there is a consensus on Iphey and Chinedu. Now on Otunba, Ngozi, James, Alhaji Galadima, hmmm...
