Aisha sat staring into vacancy, thinking of nothing, aware of only the approaching dawn. Today is the day she will move into Alhaji’s house; a wife at the ripe age of 14. Her mother had taught her a special recipe to prepare tonight. She said food is the way to a man’s heart and it was the recipe that won her Aisha’s father. So that night, Aisha took her mother’s advice and cooked a heavenly meal. Following her mother’s special recipe, she added a teaspoon of salt, two cubes of Maggi and her own secret ingredient; a dash of sniper.
