Cupid, Kenyan Style

Yours truly, the Kenyan Cupid, wanted to shoot a girl with his arrow. I found her at a New Year’s Eve party in San Jose, California, and immediately charmed her with my good looks. Or, was it my sense of humor? A few weeks later, she was spending nights at my apartment.

Girl, twenty-two and living at home with parents, loved to drink. "The only reason I sleep with you is because I'm a drunk," she said to me one night, as I attempted to lecture her after she wet my bed. So, it wasn't the good looks.

Brilliant narrative by Ombuya E. Okong'o on how he met her. And you will never see it coming, but he almost kills her. Want more?
