The Drama Post part 3!

Hey people. Under threats of violence, I have decided to cough up part 3 of the post! Enjoy!

Kendi could still see the lingering glow on her skin after her mid semester trip to see Philip. She knew he couldn't wait to see her over the December holidays. At least now she had more then just the memories of the nostalgic memories with her boyfriend to keep her going. All she was waiting was for her transfer to Ungabunga tech to go through and she would be free of this god forsaken place.

Mvaite on the other hand was disappointed that he would have to wait for a whole semester till he would be able to transfer, to make matters worse he was suffering a major case of blue balls. Mary wouldn't give up the goodies, it seemed she preferred tactile stimulation to the real thing; while the blond chic from the cafeteria seemed to be taking him round in circles. One day he vowed that he would show them that he was a Meru Lion and that Lions don't play with their food. He was also beginning to tire of the two Kenyan housemates mooching on his shopping, it seemed after a run in with Aco they wouldn't dare eat his food; but had no qualms about eating his food. The last straw that broke that camel's back was when after a long day's work he was looking forward to drinking the natural fruit juice he had bought, only to find an empty bottle looking at him when he opened the fridge. "Those women must go!" he vowed to himself, it didn't matter if they came from the same district to him.

Mary was in a state of unadulterated bliss. The semester was almost over and she was almost done with her classes. She had just finished an early exam in one of her classes, the majority of the exam was multiple choice so she didn't even have to study. She knew the best sequence when it came to multiple choice exams was D, A, C, B. It never failed for her. She laughed when she thought about Aco having to read the 800 page book on Abraham Lincoln, presenting on it and having to answer a question on it for the exam. When it came to her presentation she simply picked some points from the internet and some from Aco's presentation. Her presentation was so good that most of the class and even the Proffesor had serene expressions on their faces as the pondered what she said, one of them even had his eyes closed and was drooling slightly due to the sheer intensity of her presentation. To make things even better for her final exam all she was going to do is e-mail one of her friends in U.K whom she is sure must have read the book and ask him for tips and tricks. Ah life was good!

Fast Forward To January

Kendi never knew that things could turn out like this. Her holiday had been great, her and Mary had been hanging out at her Aunt's place all December doing nothing but watching tv, chatting and once in a while meeting their kin folk to talk about home. Things went wrong when "the letter" arrived, due to some reason or other Ungabunga Tech had refused to grant her entry. Her current school had also refused to give her a tuition waiver, it seemed they had given too many to Kenyans and wanted to give other students a turn. She still owed some money from last semester because her Uncle who was connected in the Ministry of Education did not come through with the scholarship funds as promised, it seemed that now things had tightened up in the Ministry.

Mary had enjoyed her holiday at Kendi's aunt's house. The only damper on her holiday was the fact that her grades were not as good as she thought they would be, it seems she was on academic probation; whatever that was. She wouldn't let that spoil her fun. She was also glad that now that Aco had moved out of town she could claim his room for her own and wouldnt have to share with Kendi. Kendi and her decided that there was no need to rush back to school and decided to extend their holiday for one week, the school fees issue could wait.

Meanwhile on the other side of town. Mvaite had decided to turn Aco's old room into a gym cum study. He swept the room their, put Aco's furniture aside and put together his $100 bench press he got on clearance at Walmart. He decided that the time to get rid of his mini man-boobs had come, he was sure they are what made some girls start snickering whenever he was shirt-less. He was gladder still to be rid of the two girls, he had sent Mary a message to leave the house key he had given her under the couch on the porch. He was going to turn this house into the true bachelor pad, no woman could say no to him now.

Kamau peered at the boards held by all the pasty white hands at the Arrivals section at the Airport. He finally spotted the board held by the International Office staff members from the University he was going to in the 'ville. He had come a long way from Kutus but he deserved it, he was going to reap all the benefits of America. He made sure that the wad of notes amounting to $800 was still secure in his left sock. This is all he had between him and poverty, some had told him that he should have had more money with him but after all he was in America; the land of good things!

A few miles past the airport, an SUV cruised down the freeway. Oduori was looking outside the window of the huge car. He had finally managed to put himself together, wrap up his obligations and get to America. He couldn't wait to see his girlfriend Paulina again. It had been almost 2 years since she left to go to University in Florida, she said as soon as he settled down; she would come down to see him. He ;aid his head back on the comfortable cushion, he had had made it!

Next: Characters Collide!
