FROM BAIT TO CATCH (SHORT STORY SERIES)

PROLOGUE:
This is a short story series I posted here on the blog last year. I realise that many of my new readers are yet to see it, so
I’ve assembled all 14 episodes in this post.

It’s a love story. The love between the major characters wasn’t mutual at first but one of them refused to give up …. You’ll see human nature at its worst and at its best in this story. Some of the characters will grow on you as you see them battle challenges and grow thereby.

All told, the story is typical slice of life but with enough intrigue, suspense and emotionally charged moments to enthrall you from start to finish. I composed a quote to capture the essence of each episode of the story and used it to prepare an accompanying graphic.

Let me now get out of the way. Enjoy!

  19. This is an interesting piece, weldone ma.
    I know Sharon wants to be in a relationship so bad but I don’t like the fact that she’s using Raphael as a bait.You don’t mess with one’s heart like that. Well I hope she knows what’s she doing, since she got it all figured out.

  25. Sharon ooo, take it easy with the guy’s heart. But, I’ve learnt that taking people for granted or looking down on anyone is a risk. You don’t know what tomorrow holds. You don’t know who will turn out to be who tomorrow. This has taught me how to act in a relationship.

  26. Sharon ooo, take it easy with the guy’s heart. But, I’ve learnt that taking people for granted or looking down on anyone is a risk. You don’t know what tomorrow holds. You don’t know who will turn out to be who tomorrow. This is timely
