Daha: “Where do you want to go?”
Karen: “Hmmm… anywhere closest to home, how about that?”
Daha: “Yeah that is a great idea… what side of Entebbe do you live?”
Karen: “Somewhere almost close to Resort…and you?
Daha: “That is very near to where I live…I am just off the road to State House..”
Karen: “I have been trying to not ask but…uhmmm… how long have you been in Uganda?
Daha: “Hahaha… Why?”
Karen: “Well… your accent, you do not sound like you grew up from Uganda, it is too British!”
Daha: “I actually did, I did my PLE from shimoni…I went through all the motions of all Pimary school kids…the canes, the membe and all that stuff..”
Karen: “What?? I was in shimoni… from 97 to 2002…when were you there?”
Daha: “I finished in 2000, you were in P5 then? Must have been cute…”
Karen: “Hahaha… not cute at all, I had very huge glasses, very short and tiny girl whose head was always stuck in a book…”
Daha: “Aaaaawwww… that is just cute.. hehehe….”
Karen: “Shut up… hehehe…”
Turns to study him as he drives, he was rather calm as he skillfully turned the car into the road, the BMW purred softly as he turned the wheel… Karen couldn’t help but look at his face… clean shaven, no bristle, he must have done that this morning… he had rolled up the sleeves of his shirt up his arms and she had noticed his jacket and tie on the backseat of the car. She looked around the car for any evidence of a wife or children, anything to make her jump ship, nothing.
I was just wondering where you want to go…”
Karen: “I am sorry, I was about to ask you what job you do and kinda drifted into thought…” She smiled sheepishly.
Daha: “What do you think?” he grinned at her and she blushed, she had such beautiful eyes, something regal about her.
Karen: “Drug smuggler? Hehehehe… anyway, you look like a Lawyer.. I don’t know why but you give me that Lawyer vibe…”
Daha: “For real? And I thought that I hide it so well, how did you know?”
Karen: “I didn’t know but you just confirmed it, hehehe… that and those court cases on your backseat, I seem to be good at observations…”
Daha: “hehehe… sharp! I bet you were one of those naughty kids that were curious about everything…”
Karen: “What? No!!” Grins and laughs “I was very adorable and sweet… I am lying, I was very annoying and curious… I drove everyone crazy.. hehehe… I still do… I sometimes have my 21 questions moment..”
She was smiling… playing with the ring on her finger while looking out of the window, he could sense a playfulness about her… her eyes studied everything the way a child does, but damn she was beautiful… He wanted to keep her, all for himself.
Daha: “Are you married?”
