KICK OFF.
Life has always been unkind to Kleph and in all his 34 years, 7 months 3days (and counting) on earth, life have always been to him the same way; with disdain or on lucky days, pity.
‘The mirror to the soul’, he likes to call them and it took him 34 long years to find a good soul, Kleph thought, at least judging by the ‘mirrors’.
He looked at her again and her eyes shone brightly, radiating so much love that for a moment he felt it was all a dream.
Kleph couldn’t help feeling this way. If someone had told him just a couple of months ago that he would be in any relationship let alone a relationship like this, romantic one? with jummybabe?, he would have bet his left ball in. But look at me now, he thought ecstatically, ‘holding hands with this beautiful enigma on a park bench and for the first time in my life, looking into someone’s eyes without being afraid of what I’ll see.

The cool lagoon breeze hit them in a rush and
she moved closer, into the crook of his arm.
Kleph glanced casually to the left and noticed
that the couple on the identical bench at the far
end was in a warm embrace. (Hmm) Gaining
some confidence from this, he put his arm
around and waited with bated breath for her
reaction. He was soon rewarded with a sigh of
contentment.
Few hours later as they could be seen walking
towards the bus stop, Kleph thought of the only
question that was left unanswered since they
began dating. The question was rightly
unanswered because it had never been asked
but all that soon would change, so he thought.
He knew what he wanted to say; what he had to
say. He must have rehearsed the lines over a
zillion times but as they approached the traders’
stalls, just a few meters away from the bus stop,
he lost his cool, forgot the lines and just blurted
out. ‘Will you marry me?’
Jummybabe stopped dead in her tracks and he
quickly looked away. He had heard his own
words but could not recognize the voice that
delivered them. It had suddenly acquired a funny,
high pitch tone and for a moment he thought she
would laugh, laugh out loud, laugh at him and put
him in his place once and for all.
Instead she squeezed his hand and said in that
angelic voice of hers ‘yes’….
‘Yes! Yes!!’
He screamed to himself as he walked home after
seeing her to her door. Yes to a life at last, a
wife, a family, Kleph thought. Oh, my Jummy!

What a woman, my woman. He walked as tall as
he could, considering his deformity because
tonight for once in his life, he felt complete.
The four men crouched in the bushes, watching
their quarry. Their hearts were beating fast, some
faster than others no doubt. Mikeson had had to
threaten John, the youngest of the group before
he had come with them today. He had tried to
opt out at the last minute but Mike was having
none of that, they had planned this together and
there was no going back now. Mike could see
the hunch back clearly now. He was walking
directly towards them and seemed to be in high
spirits today. If only he knew what lay ahead of
him, Mike thought.
Kleph hated the bushy footpath ahead with a
passion but could not yet afford accommodation
on the other side of town. He promised himself
right there and then that he would work harder at
his business and make enough money to move
before the wedding.
Jummybabe must not endure any kind of
hardship, he thought to himself, proudly.
At that precise moment, he felt rather than saw
a movement and then pain followed as blows
rained down on him.
He was overpowered in seconds and his screams
muffled with a rag. Kleph knew exactly what was
happening as his assailants dragged him away.
He had been warned several times about
ritualists’ love for hunch backs and knew
instinctively from the first blow that his time had
come.
As they bundled him into their waiting van, tears
immediately welled in his eyes. Tears for
Jummybabe and a life that for the first time in 34
years actually seemed worth living.
