They bumped on each other on one of the city streets. She was heading home after a busy day of errands in town while Njagi was up and about after he was done with his midday class. He held her gaze first, courtesy of her round hips that were running up and down like ocean waves as she strolled by. He ogled the aura of her curvaceous hips as they got swallowed by the lean tummy she gladly relished. It was phenomenal walking with Shiku along the streets just for bragging rights. Her bum would dance rhythmically, synchronizing with her ravishing walking style. If you’d have a chance of watching her saunter, you’d pull a stool and marvel at the god’s beauty swank about.
You see, in a man’s weird way of perceiving stuff, being spotted with a seductive woman earns one respect, never mind what both of you could be engaged in is a bootless bond. Suffice is to say, Shiku had the capacity to evoke lustful neck waggings and trigger drooping tongues from poor men passing across.
Shiku noticing Njagi, summoned her fetish spirits and as you’d guess, she reacted wildly. She ran onto his tall body and hang in there much to the amusement of male street vendors who gladly fed on her behind. She forced a peck on his coy cheeks and clung on his hairy arms that embarrassingly gave her goosebumps. She kept weaving through his unkempt hair which seemed to calm down her ovaries out of excitement of spotting a piece of gem that was a crush that had refused to fade away right from her childhood.
“So where to?”
“Just going for some shopping then join the boys later at the school basketball pitch?”
“Okay, good to hear. Well, I could offer you company as you shop.”
“Sure, let’s go.”
Their stares at each other lasting more than usually.
“So, where are you from in those ravish pants?”
“Well, ravish you say.”
“Look at all these lechery eyes ogling at you.”
“I’m used to it by now. I was from the salon in Westie, then dropped to town for some errands. Was actually heading home now.”
They popped at a supermarket, Shiku’s left arm locked to his right as if her lungs depended on him. Njagi knew too well the kind of charm she got on him. Done with shopping and heading to the cashier they passed by the liquor section and Njagi teased her if they could buy some drinks. Shiku jumped right in, responding in the affirmative. They got 2-litre packets of Jack Daniels for a whopping 7k, it’s whiskey remember! And a 750ml Smirnoff vodka.
They shoved off as Shiku called an Uber leaving no chance for Njagi to make up his mind about where they were headed with a cab. He never uses taxi. And in a split of a second, an Uber pulled over. They dropped his shopping at the hostel and proceeded to Ruiru, to Shiku’s digs. The apartments were scenic from the gate to the layout of the landscape. Njagi cleared with the sturdy-looking security team at the main entrance but not before exchanging a hard eyeball as they let the car into the cab-rod front compound. They walked to her house ushered in by clay potted plants wafting lazily and breathing life to her discreet world, rather beautifully.
Straight in, he was awed by the rise and fall of the decorative wall hangings and pricey curtains gazing meanly. Her TV screen was the size of his hostel wall stowed next to a well-stocked fridge. The kitchen was spot on, too clean until he wondered if she ever took her meals from the house. The seats were dressed in a velvet texture, maroon in colour besides being firm and inviting. The carpet was warm and clean, extending to the inner rooms that caved in to more glory. She was simply living large being a campus student. Njagi had never visited her before, only meeting in town for few and far in between coffee dates if not in the now infamous bashes.
She brought to life her music system as she dashed to the bedroom to freshen up and seemingly, dress lesser. And true to his fascination, she came donned in a pink booty shorts brushed on the edges giving way to hectares of well-toned thighs and in a white top that sat shyly above her upper belly. She got him some bitings coupled with frozen mango juice and made it to the kitchen to prepare some late lunch. Njagi would be surprised to watch her silhouette in the kitchen preparing ugali and some mutton steak. Peeping from the serving hatch, her back on him made his body coagulate.
They turned on the hard drinks soon after the heavy lunch settled in their tummies. Njagi wouldn’t stop lauding Shiku for the tasty meal. She shyly took the compliments as she served vodka to her glass as Njagi sipped his whiskey.
“How did you manage all this? ”
“You’re sure there is no sponsor investing his money here?”
Shiku chuckled dismissively adding more vodka to her glass.
“Can’t a woman have it all without being dragged to the sponsor fad?”
“I’m sorry if I sounded offensive”
“No, you don’t have to apologise. Anyway, let’s focus on other things.”
“If you say so.”
“So, how has my heartbeat been up to?”
“And you referring to?”
“To you of course. I can see your arms are bulging by the day. Are you working out?
She was now skimming through Njagi’s chest and arms, tickling him in the process.
“Not really. I have been into basketball of late though.”
“Oooh, that’s it. Your height allows you into the game. I’d pay to see you in shorts.”
“Is it such a big deal, you should come through, one of this days and watch me do my thing. But my legs are too hairy for you.”
“I will make a point of turning up one of this weekends. Of hairy legs, mmmmh that’s a turn on for me, trust me!”
“The last time we met, you spoke about Sly being a lesbian, right?
“Ooh God. Must we delve into her every time we meet?” Glowering her face.
“I’ll say it’s a coincidence.”
“Too many coincidences. Anyway, there was tittle-tattle in school about her engagements in lesbian acts.”
“But I’m told all girls schools have such stuff going on.”
“Just like homosexuality is to boys schools, right?”
“There is always speculation.”
“Well, where there is a rumour, there is some truth.”
“Was it that rampant in your school?”
“Not that really, but she belonged to an outfit that was highly suspected of being bisexual.”
Njagi ran to the washroom to take a breather from the hard news. While there, he couldn’t unwrap the sense of what Shiku was alluding to. If it remained true, then Sly poised to be an intriguing monster in his life.
Back to the living room, he was led to her bedroom by the flirtatious host eager to kill the night.
