Her birthday that was.

Ever woken up in the morning to a blinding amount of light? For a second you wonder, where am I? Within seconds your brain fully loads your system. You have over slept. Frantically you search for your phone in your bed, only to find it off and its battery empty. Quickly you jump out of bed and switch on your laptop to check the time. The laptop as blunt as it can be (especially if you are using windows 8) as it displays 08:45 in a large font on your lock screen. That is exactly fifteen minutes past the time you are supposed to be at the office.

The time they caught us.

I was going through my old mails, and guess what I found. An email from a supposed employer, they had requested us to send some processing fee for the same. I bet about 250/= (equivalent to 2.5 dollars) which after evaluation of the gains we would get sent the full amount diligently.

We both got to the bus parked on the opposite end of the street. I was traveling upcountry for the weekend. “hii gari imejaa (is the bus full)”?, he asked the attendant as he coughed his lungs out. “Imebakisha viti tatu (There are three empty seats)” the attendant replied as he pointed to the empty back seat. The old man took a quick glance at me as he boarded the bus. This whole time I vengeance was welling up in my belly and I felt like punching him in the face. I hopped into the bus and made my way on the aisle to the back seat. Finally my fears were confirmed, I had to sit beside him for the next four hours of the journey.
