OMG!!! Chipo Ane Matinji anouraya munhu – Ndakamusvirira paBeach KuDurban. Ndakatanga kushanda basa rekuBank last year and i was quickly promoted. Papromotion apa ndaifamba kunyika dzakasiyana siyana. Chipo was married infact she was newly wed and taishanda tese. Most of the time tifamba tese. Ndakatanga kumudhenha patanga taenda kuDubai kuConference. Ndakamuona achibuda muSwimming Pool after a long hot day ndokubva ndamuti… “mai makabatana hoo nhai munenge makaviga runako rwese urwu mukati mehembe dzekubasa” Pandakapedza kutaura izvi ndakafunga kuti pamwe ndichatsamwirwa asi she surprised me achiti.. “Don’t tell me pese apa kuti watanga nhasi kuona kunaka kwangu? i am offended.”
Akaseka paakapedza kutaura achitora towel achifuga nekupukuta mvura. Mboro yangu yakamira instantly ndokubva ndaivhara netowel. Takadzoka kuZimbabwe ndokumboita period yakati rebei tisati tabuda. Panguva iyoyo ini naChipo we didn’t see much of each other. One day ndakasvika kubasa ndikawana email yanga yakanzi ‘URGENT’ ndakaivhura ndikawana mukati makanzi i was to report to the airport that afternoon na2 and ready to go to SA for another Conference in Durban. Ndakaverenga more seeing how the organiser was apologising coz they notified me late. So i left work and went home and got ready.
Ndakasvika paAirport and checked in almost 2 hours later i was switching flights in Joburg and in about an hour or so was in Durban. I got a taxi to the hot that i was staying in and it was opposite the beach. Ndakasvika pacheck in and was given a key and went up. Ndichivhura door ndakavhunduka nezvandakaona. Ndakaona Chipo achifamba asina kupfeka achipinda mubathroom. She was singing loudly zvekuti haana kana kunzwa zvandakataura. Ndakamirira kuti apedze kugeza mboro yakamira.
Paakabuda mubathroom iye ndiye akavhunduka achindiona ndakagara paSofa. Akatanga kutaura the moment yandaitaurawo saka hapana akanzwa mumwe. Ndakanyara ndichimunzwa achitsanangura. The first thing she said was “what are u doing in my room and how long have u been here?” Ndakatsanangura how i got to the hotel and got the key for this room. I switched on my phone to call the hotel reception and when it was on email arrived from our organiser explaining that since my trip was short notice we were to share an apartment naChipo. I showed her the message and she cooled down and suddenly she turned RED.
She rushed to her bedroom, the apartment had 3 bedrooms so i went to the other unoccupied room and settled in. Ndakapfeka short and tshirt and went out to the beach. Ndakagara hangu upto around 6 ndokudzokera kuHotel ndikawana Chipo akagara achiona TV. Anga akapfeka kaShort kadiki kaiperera muzvidya umu, paakandiona ndichipinda she sat properly and apologised about before. Ndakadenha zvakare ndikati what exactly are u sorry about? She replied “hanti u got to see my ugly self ndisina kupfeka” Ndakanoticer kuti she was fishing for complements so i played along “ungazviti wakashata here nhai Chipo, ndakatotadza kana kugara the whole time urimuBATH mboro yakamira” Pandakaro akabva aseka akati “i didn’t know unotaura zvinyadzi Dean” Ndakapindura ndikati “saka u don’t know me that well.”
Takatanga kutaura ndokuorder room service and ate hedu tichiona TV. Mamngwana kuseni was Conference so we went to bed early. Takabuda kuseni ndokukwira courtesy car ndokuenda paICC muDurban kumeeting. Takasvika isati yatanga and we took our places waiting for the big guys to show up. Takaita about hour takagara hapana aiziva kuti what was the delay until speaker announced that there was a problem with transport for the key speaker so we will have to Postpone meeting to Monday. That changed everything. It was Friday so we couldn’t not go back to Zim and come back. That meant we were stuck in Durban till Monday or Tue until Conference yapera. Takatarisana naChipo ndokubva taseka…. Takabuda muICC ndokudzokera kuHotel i told Chipo that i was going to the beach. She agreed to join me so we changed and though it was morning we went to the beach.
We looked like a happy couple tichifamba crossing the road kuenda kuBeach, Chipo akabva atobata ruoko rwangu. Takasvika ndokuwaridza matowels under a shade. Chipo anga akapfeka kabikini kanga kakabatana or rather maASSets ake anga akabatana. Ndakamhanya kumvura ndokupinda mukati. Chipo aitevera slowly. Akasvika ndokubva ndamudhonzera mumvura. She screamed achinzwa chando chemvura. Takatambira mumvura muya for about 20 minutes splashing each other water. Takadzokera pamatowels and laid down. I think i dozed off and woke up after about an hour ndarohwa nezuva pagumbo. Ndakawana Chipo akarara right next to me chipfuva chichisumuka nekudzika achifema hake mwana wevanhu. Apa ring iriparuoko. Mboro yakatanga kumira ipapo ndkaona achimuka ndikafunga kuti pamwe ndamugumha nemboro. Ndakasimuka ndokumhanya kumvura and came back yarara. Chipo akabva amuka and we decided to get lunch.
Takaenda panonzi Ushaka Marine World ndokupinda panechirestaurant by the Sea. Takagara hedu ndokuorder sea food. (Mind u sea food inosimbisa musana kunevaya vanoda sviro) I asked Chipo what she wanted to do next and akanditi i should surprise her ndikati its fine. Handina kumbofunga anything chakaipa as ndaimuona nemarried sister wekubasa. Takapedza kudya and walked back to our spot paBeach. Ndakajoker ndichiti “varume vese avo are jealous coz ndini ndega ndine baby rakanaka” Chipo akaseka kunge mazumhu ake achabuda mubikini top yake. Akaswedera p[adhuze neni ndokuti “ok lets make them more jealous then” akadaro achibata ruoko rwangu ndokundipa hug. Ndakamutarisa mumaziso ake ndokubva ndasekerera, iye smiled as well and i moved forward and kissed her. She kissed me back for about 2 straight and she pulled away ndokubva atanga kumhanya towards our hotel. Ndakamusiya achienda as i didn’t want to raise suspicion. Ndakatevera slowly and found her akagara pasofa apfeka kashort kamwe kaive white and kairatidza mukati.
