"Ours was an ancient story, the woman wants the baby and the man doesn't want the baby and a middle ground does not exist. What would a middle ground be? We couldn't have half a baby." ~ pg. 13
My Series Sunday pick is Zikora, a short from Amazon Original Stories by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Zikora is a DC lawyer from Nigeria. When she tells her equally high-powered lover that she's pregnant, he ghosts her. Abandoned like they never even met! Zikora struggles with dignity when her demanding mother comes to town for the birth. Unlike other mothers, she is anything but comforting and supportive during labor. But everything happens for a reason as Zikora begins to realize. Oh, what a moving story this is at only 35 pages! It was direct, to the plot point and impactful with its message.
AND WHY AM I JUST DISCOVERING AMAZON ORIGINAL STORIES?!?! Free for Prime members too. Now excuse me while I go on a download spree!
