Maureen buried her head in her palms, her mind in a total state of confusion. Her world was about to be turned inside out. For now it acted like a dress rehearsal for what was to follow.
She leaned forward tiredly, her head at the mercy of her palms, her whole being all sweaty and tired. It had just been the best sexual experience she had ever had, it wasn’t her first, but she wished her first had been like this. Trembling with the dying feeling of orgasm and hearing her heart beat on the inside brought her some little joy, how she had just fucked the hell out of that guy was what she had been dreaming of all her life. She had always wanted to fuck someone like that. Hard, harder; even harder.
At only age 19 and just exploring every bit of her womanly self was turning out to be a good experience. High School had been tough; Daddy and Mummy had been following her every move, watching out for every little detail they thought suspicious and now here she was, all alone in a big world, let’s call her World Nakuru. A town located less than 100km from Nairobi and over 300km away from her home, either way….further away from her mum yet closer to her dream city.
In this side of the world, “Chwo” (the name her mum gave to men she thought were eyeing her daughter), existed in plenty.
These men knew which girl was “new” and which one….was, eeer, not so new. One chwo had actually saved her number in his phone book as “brand new.”
She turned out to be “new”, and now, thrown in the jungle of all sorts of Chwo’s, how was she going to survive?
Back home, Mummy and Daddy knelt at their bed side every morning, praying to God to take care of their little jewel. Beautiful and green, Dad hoped his jewel would come back home one day intact, more beautiful, mature and even much sharper upstairs. Mum looked forward to that day, she would know the joy of motherhood, watch her daughter’s lips shake at the sight of a man she and her husband approved of, little did they know- their daughter was already going through all this on the blind side of their dreams.
She remembered how it all begun very vividly. Maureen looked up at Josh who’d just walked straight into her class and handed her a note. It read, “Looking good today, mind catching up later?”
Josh was this sort of man, calm to the core, smart to the bits of his collar and sparkling to the gums of his dental structure; wasn’t a dream guy- but had the potential to be the same.
One date had turned to the next and soon, Maureen was doing sleep overs. She had done this in the past (twice or thrice) and lost her virginity in one of those- but that was with other men before Josh.
In all theses incidences she had used protection, and like every other college girl, it was primarily out of the fear of pregnancy than that of anything else.
This one looked so exciting, not just a sleep over- it was going to be an out of town weekend.
Josh wasn’t the type to hold anything from his woman, he showered it on her, but one inner wolf always manifested itself every time he hit the big jackpot. Maureen wasn’t to ever know about it, actually, the taboo in Josh’s life was to ever even think of; the two kids he fathered elsewhere.
Nairobi wasn’t far away so in less than 2 hours they were in the big city. What a man, Maureen thought. Josh knew his way through the streets, knew his way to every club and wasn’t scared to show it. Maureen, flabbergasted at every move, just let herself savor every moment.
The first night had gone on so well, club hoping wasn’t her thing so a few minutes after 4am, she allowed herself get back to her hotel room.
The early morning sunrise now lit her face as she and josh recovered from a glorious morning activity. The headaches after a night of alcohol lingered from a far, but she didn’t mind at all.
She noticed something right at the top of the head board.
It was a camera.
She closed her eyes, took in a deep breath and opened them again. She was hoping she was imagining everything up, but the camera was still there. Her eyes lit up, she sat up straight over her man’s body.
“Oh My God” she screamed,
Josh Smiled (he was anticipating this moment). He placed it there during the night, it was a trick he had done over and over again to silence his victims.
“Sssshhhhh, calm down little girl, if you cooperate I assure you no harm shall come upon you.” Josh hissed as he pulled the laptop away. The camera had been connected to the laptop all this while and now, he shut it down to keep it away from Maureen.
“How could you? Josh?” Maureen screamed.
She dressed quickly, drenched in tears as Josh calmly diffused a cheeky smile.
“This is my business, this is how I make my money” he said.
“For a few shillings, I would give you the video, however should you refuse, every whatsapp account in campus would have it and soon the whole world will know about this.”
What was she going to do?
“Evil Man” she hissed. That’s all she could do. She was totally lost. She had no money to pay this devil.
Sitting on the chair opposite the bed, she looked at his chest, what had she seen in this skinny hell of a man? She knew too, she couldn’t fight him. ‘He doesn’t look handsome anymore’, she thought.
Now, she could only cry. Her deeds were about to be spilled to the world. Josh was actually a part of a gang that worked in the blue movie industry. Making money out of luring young girls to have sex with them for blackmail in a case where if it failed, they put it up on the internet.
