  1. I’m sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I do hope you get better soon my friend. Enjoyed the read the second time around too.

  2. This story is great, Uzo. 🙂 I think I fell in love with the ending most–so inspiring. Actually, I hadn’t expected Daddy to show up, but then it’s a nice twist.

    I didn’t know you were down with malaria, but I’m glad to know you’re better now.

    Happy Writing, nwannem. Can’t wait to see the next episode of We Are Not Cursed.

  3. Many thanks, KayKay. I’m still a sucker for happy endings 😀 So the Daddy showed up.

    Omo, the fever left me feeling helpless. But I’m now doing fine.

    Yes o, We Are Not Cursed returns next week. We’re getting to the climax.

  4. Wow! Glad you overcame the malaria fever and sorry that you had to endure it. This story is a powerful example of your giftedness. I need to reread it again sometime.

    1. Yeah, I’m feeling fine now. Thanks to the prescribed meds. Knowing you enjoyed the story is a big encouragement to me. Thanks, Robin.
