Swift Scribbles: Finally; A Hope.


I want to say thank you for reading – I want to say I appreciate your presence here. I want to say I hope I am not boring you with the Swift Scribbles Series – and I also want to say; there’s a small question for you to please answer – if you are reading.


Thank you.




We’re watching 300: Rise of An Empire.


Spoiler alert – It’s an embarrassing movie.


Seun is fond of saying the movie is sponsored by Heinz – given the amount of blood flying all over the screen and threatening to drench us innocents viewers.


We are watching in 3D after all.


I am somewhat uncomfortable. I mean, watching grownups have sex is invasive enough, but watching in the company of other grownups manages to bring a flush

to my neck. All the time.


I shift, hoping the beautiful woman holding my hand won’t notice my discomfort. She mumbles a bit – and falls silent.


I turn to look at her. She’s asleep.


She looks gentle – angelic even. The hint of a smile caresses her full lips, I try not to lower my eyes because of the swell of something –


I move my eyes back to her face – and her open eyes.


She’s looking at me.






What do you guys think? Do you want this couple to get together?!

  2. We need to get a feel of what the lady thinks, how she feels. But then if she is holding his hand while watching a movie that’s a good sign. So why not?

    • Thank you so much!

      The story’s been quite selfish…I’ve been trying to maintain the narrative from ‘his’ point of view. But I’ll expand it somehow.

      You’re awesome.

    I had to read all the episodes over again and i’ll say HELL YEAH to your question. She really likes him and with the panic attack, flutters in his chest/stomach and his knees buckling, he is in love as well. He should GIVE LOVE A CHANCE.

    A lady considers you worthy enough to spend some quality time with you at the cinemas, and as if that’s not enough pointers that’s she’s into you, she goes on to hold your hands. Dude, stop stalling and take a chance! She’s not gonna wait around for you forever, so quit dawdling already and rise up to the ‘challenge’! A stitch in time saves nine, so what the hay?! Go on and break a leg! Lolzzzz!
