She couldn’t help but cry, her life looked like it was finally coming to an end. She was pregnant!! Oh don’t give her that look! Don’t you think that would be you if not for God’s Grace? But today I won’t talk about her, we all know she was a very innocent girl from Machanga village who anyone could take advantage of provided he had that ‘town’ convincing power, instead I’ll talk about Peter the playboy.
I thought names were supposed to influence the character of someone well, in this case it did not apply, he was nothing like the disciple of Jesus, (Oh! unless we say he was a fisher of women) Peter was Dandora’s town’s prince charming, with eyes to die for and a voice that could not only attract snakes but also ladies, believe me when you hear his voice you’l have to turn (Mwakazi sought of voice), so what happens when you turn and find that well created face? (The gazes are stories of another day)
He was a tout in some old car called Token, but despite the old car that moved like a wheelbarrow on a rocky ground, girls still flooded in that car, some would actually not dare board another ‘chopper’ least they don’t get to put their eyes on him and get the winsome smile he gave his customers. He posed a real competition to the other Matatu touts as they could only carry old men and some church going women as some also enjoyed watching and winking at Peter (world coming to an end heee!) Everyone knew that Peter was a playboy, he was the kind that know how hot they are and he played his card right.He would get the “keep change” story a lot especially from those carrier ladies who even took the trouble of giving him their business cards and telling him to call them…. I wonder if he did call all of them..hmm!!
I’ve heard so many girls claim to be pregnant for him and he would abandon them and even go to an extend of claiming he’s never even seen them, its so sad that Irene my dear friend fell in his colourful trap, but you know what really surprised me? Peter claims that he wants to marry Irene, he claims that Irene is the best thing that has ever happened to him. What??** Yah! You heard me right. So Irene being my dear friend just asked me to accompany her to take Peter to her parents this Saturday! Can I be part of giving my friend to a playboy? A man with so many children that if there all collected they could form a football team! Or has he really changed? What about the pregnancy? That’s what we call Dilemma!!
