|My 2nd Story Here. WHEN HUSBANDS CAME by hipswrites(f): 9:21pm On Jan 30, 2018|
WHEN HUSBANDS CAME
BEFORE THE COUP. The women left their meeting hall to the recreation arena for their dance juggles. Emem, their instructor had just arrived, she was a grandchild to one of the older women in Ukana Community, and used to visit the community fortnightly for dance sessions. Her grandmother, when she was younger was an active dancer, Emem was not only active but skilled, and her ‘full option figure’ did a great justice to her passion for dance.

'Hmmm, my sister!'
