Secrets And Lies

LIES

‘A crime novel replete with twists and turns and intricate character relationships.” Green Olive Press

Everyone has skeletons in their closets, everyone has secrets,but when the body of an elderly recluse turns up dead in her kitchen, the skeletons which she has kept hidden so well, come spilling out and William Phillips, her wealthy son has the very fabric of his life turned upside down.

Follow a web of intrigue through Rose Phillip’s life to uncover her secret and discover who wanted her dead and why the killer now has William in his sights.

Excerpt

‘Excuse me, William, the police are here to see you,’ Anita led the two officers into his office and closed the door behind her on her way out. If William Phillips was surprised, he didn’t show it. He stood and pushed his chair back from his desk. They were both fresh-faced kids and looked as if they had just graduated from the Academy.

William imagined they would be more at home by a roadside in the middle of the night attending a crash scene, than standing here in his plush office with the antique carpets on the floor and expensive art work on the walls. He noticed the female officer looking at the Joan Miro painting hanging on the wall behind him. She was obviously drawing her own conclusions as to the type of person he was…’

Failure Is A Lesson That Encourages And Improves The Quality Of Life

 

Life is precious than silver and gold

Having faith in God builds one strong to avoid depression, loneliness and the tendencies of suicidal

I have heard many times that ‘Failure is not an option.’ Does it mean that we have to be perfect and successful in whatever we want to achieve in life? How can that be possible? Because since we are human beings and imperfect, we shall continue to experience many setbacks, including failure and disappointment in daily in our lives.

In relationships, careers and businesses, we are all bound to suffer certain problems. The question is, how do we handle or take it personally when we encounter such painful defeats and failures? I have seen it sports, tournaments and in certain fields of activities, participants emotionally and psychologically break down in distress, because they failed to achieve what they aimed at.

Life isn’t an easy journey if you want to achieve something genuinely. Many like to avoid life pitfalls or turmoil, by choosing a wrong path or shortcut. You can see them driving expensive cars and dwelling in beautiful mansions, but you don’t know what they do for the living.

When you see them like that, many wish they are one of them, but be careful to wish you are someone until you read the front page of newspapers that the person you wished to be, has been arrested at one of the international airports, in possession of heroin or cocaine. Would you like your life to end up in this way, because you wanted to avoid life’s failures and disappointments?

The world is full of great people; sometimes your eyes will be filled with tears, when you read their autobiographies to know what they went through before achieving success. In life, failure or disappointment teaches one to be perfect. It worth therefore to see failure as one of the life’s tools which educate and shapes life in a positive way.

My passion to be a writer was easier in Africa than Europe, yet when I was in Africa, I thought Europe will be the right place for me to achieve my aims and objectives. Once in Antwerp, Belgium, I tried to raise a fund to enhance the publication of one of my books. It turns out to be one of the biggest failures in my life.

I couldn’t raise a cent, but this embarrassment wasn’t only what happened. I became a laughing puppet at the school where I’m working. It became a talk of the town with gossips and laughter. Instead of being sad or depressed, I embraced and accepted it as one of the life’s challenges to continue writing without looking back.

People do things you may find it hard to believe. I don’t even think children will do what they did. The failure of the fundraising also taught me to be careful those I contact to demand bread. If one fails to accept failures and disappointments as instruments destined to educate and propel your career to the highest peak, you may end up at the psychiatry with depression or mental problems.

What Will You Do When A Married Woman Is Interested In You?

“How would you judge it, when a married woman wants to sleep with you,  a blessing, evil or temptation?”

About fourteen years ago, I made an advert in a local newspaper in Antwerp, Belgium, looking for a job as a cleaner because cleaning is one of the easiest jobs to get if one wants to be financially independent as quickly as possible. (Later the Belgian government noticed it and blocked the illegal work by introducing cleaning payment cheques through work agencies) I had a good response and started working for four married women.

When a man is around a woman, one needs to be conscious, because some women are very attractive and tempting. The beautiful dress they wear and the expensive perfumes they use, add glamour to their beauty, which could sweep a man off his feet if you are not the type hard to fight temptation. There is no way a fowl can pass maize without swallowing it. I don’t blame Bill Clinton, Jeffery Archer, Mike Tyson, Tiger Woods and many others for their inability to resist the taste of the juicy fruit. All came crashing down because of a woman.

One of the women I was working for, husband works outside Antwerp. Being a housewife, she thought she could cheat on her husband with me. It may be that I am completely wrong, she hadn’t those intentions. Probably she was just trying to see if I would yield to her demands to determine if I am a dangerous man in her house, in order to kick me out immediately. In the first week, I started cleaning her house, there isn’t a single day passing by without her touching my buttocks. She comes very close behind me touches my butt and leaves.

Saskia (not her real name) was a very beautiful and attractive lady. It’s hard to resist the temptation of giving her what she wants. I stood firm not to enter into her tempting ‘Golden box,’ yet I was scared to death to tell her to stop touching my buttocks. Besides, her husband was very friendly to me, there is no way I’m going to do this. It’s completely wrong to sleep with another man’s wife. I would not be happy if someone does that to me. After the continuation of ‘buttocks touching’ for two weeks without response, she stopped.

I gave a big sigh of relief, unknowing she has other plans. On the first floor of the building was a library. Usually, I take all the books and dust the shelves in the cleaning process. She knows that I clean the bookshelves every week, so she printed a colored photograph of a man inserting his manhood into a lady’s ‘golden box’ and hid it at a place where I can easily reach when cleaning the books. More than dozen times, I took the picture and watched, asking myself, Lord what a temptation? I refused to sleep with her.

The third temptation happened on a very sad day, September 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center. While I glued myself to the corner of the sitting hall listening to the shocking news, she invited me to join her on the sofa and I declined. “You are a married woman who wore a ring,” I told her. From that day I gained my freedom. We became good friends and she liked me more like a brother.

She gave me a key to her house to clean weekly without disturbing her if she is in bed. But one day something went terribly wrong. Saskia forgets that she has given me a key to her house. She wakes one morning and finds a dark figure in her kitchen. I have no words to explain what followed. She screamed calling God to come to her rescue. This is a woman who doesn’t even believe in God. I was sad and upset. I gave back her key that very day.

I worked for her for five years and quit because I got a full-time work and it became difficult to handle both. She was highly disappointed when I decided to leave. I want her to be happy, so I went to her place with a friend to work for her. She rejected him outright. I took another friend and she also opposed him. I gave up but she didn’t take it kindly. She sent me a disappointing mail of neglecting her, calling me a bad person, after all, that she has done for me. I apologized and everything became normal.

The Reason I Forget My Birthday Every Year

birthday 3

Many people worldwide, happy or satisfied about whatever they have achieved in life, wished to be thankful by celebrating birthdays. Many spend thousands of dollars, including celebrities, to celebrate birthdays in grand style, giving expensive gifts, including cars to their loved ones.

I may be lost in this world, even though I’m part of this generation, because every year, I forget my birthday. Either my son or wife comes to ask me “Do you know that today is your birthday?” Before checking the calendar to remember that I was born 19th of January. This may sound stupid, but it’s true, because I don’t value birthday.

As a father, the rapid decaying of the society, terrorism, immorality, the decline of Christian activities, the influence of negative activities and the encouraging of all bad things by head of churches and world leaders are my concern, the reason every year, I forget my birthday. I may die today and be gone tomorrow, but what about the life of our children?

Many African children born or raised in Europe are bold to tell parents that there is no God, when in Africa; your child can’t tell you such nonsense. Who are they following and what is influencing them? When I make up in the morning, after asking for God’s protection, I ask God to protect my three sons and lead them to marry women when they grow, because I don’t want to die of shock.

As a writer, my passion lies in writing and reading. Sometimes I forget that the whole day I haven’t eaten. Like every writer my ambition is to create something different in the world of literature, thus; what’s the significance of birthday celebration when I can’t even remember the day I was born?

I don’t think I will ever celebrate my birthday, because it a normal day for me, above all I think children deserve birthday not adults. During birthday parties across the world, plenty of food are thrown into the trash, yet the poor are starving, while thousands go to bed without food.

Not at all, birthday celebration is not part of, but I will be very glad, when my social media friends remind me when it’s my birthday. That’s genuine love, because I love them too.
