I came home one night to see a note under my pillow and, it read, "You belong to me Moxie, there is no escape!". I didn't think there was any cause for alarm.. It's obviously someone trying to pull a prank on me.. But who could it be?

I didn't know whether to be scared or pretend that it's nothing. Swiftly I checked the house--from the living room, to the bathroom, to the kitchen, to the gym room, and finally my bed room, again! There was no sign that someone had broken into my home. It's not yet time to panic, It could be that I'm just paranoid as usual, or maybe I scribbled that stuff without my knowing. I told myself.

I had a warm bath, and went to bed curled up under my duvet. I couldn't dismiss the thoughts--there were so many "what ifs" running through my mind, and I had to leave the lights on because of my fright. Not sure what to do, I hummed hush little baby , don't say a word till I drifted off to sleep.


I woke up the next morning with gratitude for safety, ran a hot shower and prepared for work.

"Hey Cutie", came Josh, with all the excitement.
"Hey", I smiled.

Josh is the closest person to me at work. Maybe it's too early to say I'm attracted to him, but I really am; we had this connection right from the first day we met at the interview--I had seen him first at the reception, talking to this older lady whom I assumed was his boss or one of the high rank staff. He was handsome, and soft spoken; quite charming for a guy. I couldn't help but drool!.

Occasionally, I stole glances at him, and each time I did, I noticed he was staring right back at me. At the end of his conversation with the lady, he walked up to me--asking what time my appointment was.

"9 a.m.", I replied, trying hard not to embarass myself.
"Oh, you do really keep to time, you still got thirty more minutes". I could tell he was impressed.
"I try". Oh! Am I really blushing now! 
"Well, goodluck, have a great one", he gave me a soft pat onthe back.
"Thank you".
"Please forgive my manners, I'm Josh", he stared at my eyes, and it seemed he was searching for that look of disappointment.
"It's fine, I'm Moxie, and I'm pleased to meet you, Josh".
"No, the pleasure is all mine. Who meets such a beautiful lady in the morning? I bet my day is blessed".
"I see you got jokes". We both chuckled.

A look at my watch, and it's almost time for my interview.

"You mind if I ask for your phone number?", he asked.
"Um, no, I don't", I beamed.

"Thank you", he replied while he gave me his phone.

He did call me later in the day to know if I succeeded in getting the job as an editor. I did!

Coming to work every morning since then, I had always looked forward to bumping into him and this was one of those mornings.

"How was your night, Beautiful?" He asked.
"Creepy, I will tell you about it on weekend when we are work free". My heart raced. "No, that's a bit far, we will talk about it over lunch later in the day", he replied--with a flirty wink.
"Alright, till then, take care".
"You too, see ya!".

Just as I sat in my chair, about to open the pile of work loaded on my desk, a text came to my phone. I smiled, thinking it was Josh being romantic, but it wasn't!

Hi guys, so with questions I get on how to lose weight, and how to gain weight, I believe this article would help in knowing what foods to eat or avoid; depending on what your body goals are. It’s important to know your BMI (Body Mass Index) first so you know if you’re underweight, overweight, or perfectly healthy. A BMI of 25.0 or more is overweight, while the healthy range is 18.5 to 24.9.


Hi guys, how are you? So, following my writeup on 17 THINGS MEN HATE IN A RELATIONSHIP , so many of my lovely ladies wanted me to write on what women also hate in a relationship too. I finally put them together! Dear men, it is important to note that just as you hate so many things in a relationship, women also do, and one of them is definitely not thinking that her feelings are important. So many men are led to believe that all a woman wants is money and gifts. To be honest, we love, and want these things, we do! But they’re never going to make up for things you’re not getting right. I hope you find this article helpful, and make necessary adjustments where you’re at fault so you can enjoy a real and meaningful relationship.


Image credit: The sun So yeah, before you ask if I'm gonna write 'What women hate in a relationship', yes I will, but for now let's talk about these stuff we women do without knowing that men hate them. Ask any man and he'll be sure to tell you that they hate these stuff about women. So knowing this, you can be a different kind of girl, and most importantly be a matured one. Let's get started: 1. SPYING. Oh yes! I bet you didn't know. It's okay to protect your man but don't go spying on him, looking for who's texting him and who he's texting. I used to do this until I realized one fact: he chose you, not them. If he wanted to be with other girls, he would, and not you. Spying gives you off as an insecure woman and that even drives him faster into the arms of another woman.. No man wants to feel caged. If you suspect he's cheating, best you can do is talk with him, or ask him questions. If you can't deal with it, then peacef
