Previously on Shiros

Marto makes a daring trip with his newly found ‘flame’ to a house party all the way in Eldoret. After a traumatising ride in a 7-a-side mat, they end up at a dark matatu stage where Martos next step is into the bush with Shiro the student closely behind…

Tonight/today on Shiros


Chapter 3: The evil one!

As Marto is busy jumping with Shiro into the bushes, Shiro, his neighbour, is waking up in Nairobi without a hangover despite the frotho she indulged in last night. Strong woman. It’s evening now and she awakes. She has that look. The look that could get her the part of the witch in any horror easily. She has the hair, the look and the heart. This is one chick Marto fears. And for him to fear you, you must really be scary. Mum meets daughter on the hallway. Mum screams, drops the clothes basket she is carrying and holds up her rosary and calls out to the Son of man. Shiro is scary. Marto jokes that when she was being born they kept shoving her back into the womb ‘coz at first the doctors thought the part coming out first was the arse. They realised only later it was her head. A joke with painful consequences for Marto. After a few “Jesuses” and “Good Lords” her mum informs her that her breakfast/lunch/dinner will be ready in 30 minutes. She isn’t interested in bre-lun-di, she just wants to go across to Marto’s digs and bug the living night out of him. Not before ‘beautifying’ herself first. At least she tries. She gets to his place only to find the usual post-it on the door “Mkeja hapatikani”. Marto loves that post-it. “Where the hell is he?” she sighs. Well, he isn’t in hell, but Shiro the student thinks she is. Beyond the bush and a few ditches later they emerge in a clearing with loud booming music. “I thought you said it was a house party?” asks Shiro. “There’s the house,” points Marto to a tent, “and here’s the party! Wooooohooooo!” as he goes straight for the drinks. Quite the gentleman.

LMAO. nice move for marto clearly he will never be busted for playing; two shiros.

marto just does stuff. he never thinks about anything. i’m sure playing wasn’t on his mind. and as i said he ain’t ‘playing’ no one.
