The Midnight Call

Ulumma’s decision to stay back in the village after her brother’s death did not sit well with her parents who wanted her to return to the city and find a good job.

She graduated with a second-class upper degree in Accountancy and blessed with finer curvatures than those women who did butt-lifts and tummy tucks and so, finding a rich man to marry her would not be a problem.

Her parents were firm believers of using what one had to get what one wanted and one day, she realized that she too had become like them. This was the state of her mind until her brother death two months ago.
