A brand new series… November 23, 2007

Posted by modoathii in heroes, la mujer, series, tv.

No one knows where they came from. They only had one special power. A power they all shared. The power over Marto. (not really but close enough)

But this series isn’t about their power, it’s about their stories and the roles they played in his life.

This is the all new episode of Shiros. The so called “Wanjirus” in Marto’s life.


This is the story of several Wanjirus who thought they were like everyone else..until they realised (in the end) they have a incredible link. Marto. These people did not realise they had a role in his interesting life. Too bad that role couldn’t have come earlier to help prevent the catastrophe that is Marto. No one can save him now.

The whole unfortunate thing is they all (except one who thought he’d turn out better) thought, that Marto was their dream man (pause as I laugh my head off)


(still laughing)

(catching my breath)

(holding my side)

(ouch! as I’m slapped to get back to the story)



Wanjiru wa mama: This was my mum. She will make technical appearances as flashbacks where her power of wisdom is unleashed on an unsuspecting Marto who happened to be with Modo as they misbehaved. er..scratch that.

Wanjiru the student: This is the lovely college girl who Marto never actually openly confessed he really liked, and neither did she. It was a friendship of ‘kuchokozana’. What’s the word, ‘of mutual friendship’.

Wanjiru the workmate: Sweet and quiet but very wise..okay, smart. Into Marto in her own special way.

Wanjiru the devious one: Come on there had to be a bad one surely. She’s Marto’s er..bad, neighbour. The one you never go borrow salt from…the one who managed to outsmart and successfully get to Marto’s nerves on several occasions.

Wanjiru the cousins: Having been born in a tribe who’s tois’ names come from grandparents, there was a whole football team of them. They’ll be making Kamikaze appearances here and there.

Wanjiru the trainer: Marto never really had any serious running in with this one, but when he did….(look out Diwali)

Wanjiru the pastor’s daughter: This was the closest Marto came to salvation. And that it almost (he insists) happened in the vestry was too close for comfort.

Wanjiru in China: Shiro Nakamura. She’s not really called “nakamura”, it’s just that she went all the way to China…and China, Japan..eeeeh, close enough.

These episodes are written in some style I got from some talented guy…it’s written in 299 words, no more, no less. enjoy.

The all new episode of….


Episode 1

She stands there staring into the mirror, into her own eyes. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. But all she can see right now is blankness. She knows you cannot look into your own soul. Something stirs behind her. She turns quickly. She notices the sleeping bundle. She stares, at the blanket gently rising and falling. She looks back in the mirror. This time she sees horror on her pretty morning face. Who is that? She wonders. Then remembers. She had noticed his handsome face at Nakumatt Prestige. He was fashionably dressed but had this cheeky look on his face. People who knew him, knew when he gets this look he is to be avoided. She didn’t know him. So she doesn’t. He made the first move. “Good morning”, he had said. And too eagerly she acknowledged. There was the mistake. When Marto said “Hi” to you, especially if you are a beautiful chick, just walk on. He’s testing the waters. And acknowledging is not only allowing Marto a foot in the door, it means he is IN. And here they were. Miles away from home. And here she was, staring at the mirror. How was she convinced to come all the way to Eldoret. Her college mates knows she’s the hardest chick to break. Was she drugged? Highly unlikely considering she doesn’t drink. But here she is. And there he is. Awake. He looks at her, and with a conquering smile asks, “Good morning Shiro.” She racks her brain as to what may have happened. She looks at Marto hoping for an answer. She gets it. His dress code says it all. He’s dressed in all his clothes including his boots. Thank God. The whiff would have cured any hangover. So what really happened…
