"I have learned that like alcohol, reading and writing are more intoxicating ways to unsuccessfully look for the meaning of life. I read, pretending I’ll find something; I write, pretending I’ve found it."There are no answers in this world. Yet I look for them when I read and give them when I write, because it’s too boring to have nothing to do. I guess I’m confused. I guess life doesn’t need answers to be full. I guess all I found was this raw honesty."- Chiedozie omeje

Indulgence

By Chiedozie Omeje

A fascinating short story by the winner of the C. I. T. Writer’s Award, 2020.Pastor Matt Makinde took his first swig from the tincture of adultery, and thought it was a good wine. A letter, a cleavage, a song, and France Moore became the temptation he couldn’t and didn’t want to overcome. Matt was one pastor who pretended he didn’t know that a negotiation with the flesh leads to one end only, no matter what was agreed.Lust, like greed, is carnivorous and cannot be spoonfed.
