They had just moved into this new neighbourhood.It was deep in the city with vehicle noises and dirty air.Andy hated this new place.He missed the forests,the animals,the river water and more so his local friends back in their rural home.He had departed with his family without saying a word to his crew.They were probably worried of his absence by now.They definitely were.
It was his second week now in Nakuru,a renowned place in the country. His dad had forced there moving to get him close to the school he was yet to join.Andy was a fresh graduate from a primary school and was waiting to join highschool.He cared less of this.He had only worked hard to attain that certificate to satisfy his dad,a man who valued education that any other thing.He would die for books.Himself,he had three degrees to his name.If Andy failed a promotion,he would not take it.Andy understood this well.
"Its time dad."
They had been waiting to start the generator to carry out some laundry.The son and the father missed their woman.She used to do all the laundry without using the washing machine.She was the best mum to Andy and an awesome wife to this man.She had passed on two years ago following an illness they failed to ascertain.But this is earth.
"Bring the petrol.We should be done in half an hour"
"But dad the bearings are dry..they won't fucking move"
"We gat oil?"
"Oh shit I forgot.I'll go get it
A bundle of dirty uproans and tough jeans was done with in time for Andy to get back to his room and do his routine catchup with his old memories.Being only 16,he had so much to recal already.He had personally gone through hell itself and right now he was somewhere in between it internally.As good as things seemed, he was a package of wild thoughts in the mind.He had secrets,foregone choices,and regrets stored in his head.He lay on the spring bed and rolled them over one by one staring at the ceiling.
First,was this dream he had when he was 7.An old woman blocking his way to a flower garden without saying a word.The flowers seemingly called him but the only entrance was sealed by this dirty old strange granny.Andy would cry out loud and hit her to give way but she was static.
Whatever the dream meant was a mystery he would one day solve,hopefully.After all he hated beauty and these flowers were another shoker to him.
Then there was this childhood friend of his-a fat girl who lived arround their home.His mom had employed the girl's mum as Andy's nanny.Her name was Shasha.They played too much.They were so close and open friends. They occasionally did strange things like kissing childishly.Now the kissings were what kept hitting Andy.So young were they but how would Shasha know all this things? Why the fuck did she have to troll him into this life of intimacy at so young an age? Questions for future answers.
He had some other random thoughts before someone banged his bedroom door.
"Wats up Andy.You going for the ride?"
It was Mag,his new found friend and neighbour.They had clicked so fast and done so much together already.They had played cards,played girls and their favourite, which was about to happen again now,was riding on some skateboards all over the town checking things out and poking anyone they didnt like at their own risk.
"Am hella tired men.Ive been working all day."
"Don't be cold...we can hook up with some goons who go sought us up with som'n good.You can't miss out on this one yoo.Trust me"
Andy knew well what trust had in price.Especialy between people you just met offlate.Even with them having been friends for a week or so,Andy still doubted Mag.For a go out with such a bad mood,Andy needed to be well convinced,not forced to trust.Mag was good at this-convincing.
"We gat some chiks comin over too meeen..its gone be one fire trip today."
Andy loved girls. Even at his young age,he already knew their sweetness. He was a virgin,a thing that Mag always hit him up on the face with every time they argued and he didnt like it.He waited so bad to one day go on an adventure to the in-betweens of the girls thighs...and with all that Shasha had shown him earlier,he couldn't wait for this life to move fast and get him to the levels of sex as a freedom and right.
"The girls?! I'm all in"
He said,jumping up to his hood and a pair of black dirty sneakers bought long ago when he was young but somehow grew bigger alongside his foot.
The two boys used the advantage of the old man busy schedule with whatever he was doing in his garrage all that time and jumped on their skateboards off to the downtowns.It was show time.
