A blackly funny piece of Lagos gothic, a short-story exclusive about parenting and playboys for the Quick Reads literacy programme.

When his girlfriend throws him out during the pandemic, Bambi has to go to his Uncle’s house in lock-down Lagos. He arrives during a blackout, and is surprised to find his Aunty Bidemi sitting in a candlelit room with another woman. They both claim to be the mother of the baby boy, fast asleep in his crib.

Who is lying and who is telling the truth?
