These boots: A photo story by Obi Somto & Yolanda Okereke

by Yemi Olowu

The world has indeed turned into a global village, and Alex has realised that she doesn’t need to travel to get things done or to see people. This case is exceptional, though! She has to make this trip to make sure she isn’t joking or playing games. She met a mystery person on the internet, and they decided between themselves not to see pictures or speak to each other – to keep the suspense burning! Here’s their photo story:

Upon her arrival into this foreign land she was tired but couldn't help but wait for the next day.

They decided to meet at the corner of house 40, the only yellow gate on the block. Alex waited all day, and Mystery didn't show up.

The following day Mystery still didn't show up, Alex wasn't sure if she was upset or intrigued with suspense.

She went to the train station, hoping Mystery would come out of one of the trains and end the wait.


And just when she had given up, behold there was Mystery!! A girl! Wtf!! She came all this way for a girl. She knew her boots were meant for walking, but not in anticipation of what befell her.
