Mabasa ari kunetsa munongozivawo. Saka when i was called for a job interview i was ecstatic. Ndanga ndane 2 years after ndagraduator basa risati ramuka. But there was one problem, the interview was to be in Bulawayo. Saka ndini uyo kuma 2pm i left for show ground kuti ndinokwira kuenda kuByo. I wanted ma private cars really coz i had figured kuti they would be faster.
Zvisineiwo pakabva pasvika rimwe bus raibva nekuMbare ranga riri almost full. Since ndanga ndiine abt 30 mins ndakamira pabus stop i decided kuti rega ndichingokwira. So i sat beside this cool looking dude ndobva bus rarova pasi. Takambonyarara tisingataudzane kusvika muKwekwe, when someone spilled his drink on me aipfura mu passage we started talking tichingoti ndozvinobhowera public transport. Saka ukuenda kupi, hee urikunorara kupi bla bla bla. I really wasn’t up to talking to him bcz i just thought it was beneath me to be hitched in a bus. Nonetheless i enjoyed his company tichingotaura bits and pieces, asking me abt the book i was reading etc etc. Ndakazo shamisika tave kuda kusvika ku Bulawayo munhu akusimuka achi collecter matickets. Handina kuziva kuti mainspector emabus ari cool like that. To think i had given him my fon number. Ndakabhoikana. So wen we got to byo i just said bye politely ndobva ndasiyana nazvo.
Akambotryer kundifonera manheru acho, was sleeping at my aunty’s but i completely ignored him. Sezvineiwo after the interview on my way back to Harare guess wat, bus ndakariona rakamira pamalifts futi. Ndikati haa this time handikwiri. Mainini vangu vakati buses are safer chingokwira kani. Ndaigoramba ndichiramba ndichiti chii, so i got in and guess wat, he is the first person i saw and our eyes locked. Ndakabva ndanzwa kunyungudika and all the anger against him for being a ticket inspector just sipped away and i smiled at him. He was such a dish. Ndakabva ndangogara hangu kuback. Bhazi rainetsa kuzara saka vakazongozadza nevanhu vemuGweru. Bus rakafamba kusvika kuGweru and he didn’t once come to the back to say hi. Kamoyo kakarwadzirira lol.
Tasvika muGweru dzanga dzatova kuma5 bus rakambomira for an hour richida kuzadza robva razosimuka risina kuzara. Ini ndaingoverenga hangu novel rangu. Akazouya bus ramunzira nechocolate iya yakanzi bubble akati i think this would make the perfect accompaniment for your novel. Handina kumboramba, ko ndanga ndamukumbira here. He then came and sat next to me. Akabva aisa ruoko rwake kumashure almost as if arikundipa hug achiti ngativerenge tese. I allowed it. Apa i was reading an errotic scene saka resistance yanga iri low . Akabva ati can i have a piece of chocolate ndikamuti tora. Paakuitora his hand brushed against my B00BS and i got an electric shock. Nyatso dzangu dzakabva dzamira and with the lightness of the material of my top akabva azviona. Akati “i see u liked that”.
Ndakamuignowa and i fixed my eyes on the book. I was so embarrassed for being so easily turned 0N by a stranger at that who i didn’t even like. Akabva ati what if i did this, then he circled nyatso yangu with his finger. Aaaaah, why oh why was he torturing me. I ddnt even know how to respond coz zvainakidza but also inappropriate so i kept quiet. He then repeated it and i started feeling beche rangu richitota. Akabva atanga hake kudya kapiece kaye kechocolate ndikasiya zvakadaro. Zvandanga ndichiverenga zvanga zvisisapinde mumusoro. Apa i kept rereading the same statement. Pfungwa dzangu dzatodhanganyika.
He had such a power over me zvekuti even up to now i don’t understand it. The s-exual tension now was so thick one could cut it with a knife. Ndakavhara book and said lets talk. I started asking him questions like wat a person like him was doing inspecting tickets. Then he said it was his father’s idea because he wanted him to understand his business from the grassroots. Ndakangoti inga. Handina kumboona kuti muKwekwe takadarika sei tichingotaura asking each other personal questions.
