Mojo had been in town for a whole of two months and already she was causing chaos.
After triapsing around the continent for the past two years, she'd decided to come back home - home being where her bestfriend eve was and try settling down.
She might have been settling down but the dust in her wake most certainly wasn't,the ladies chased after her like she was drenched in chocolate and finished off with several mouthwatering cherries.
She wasn't what you'd call a player, but when life threw melons at you,the least you could do was feel them up and give them a good lick,and in that regards, she wasn't disappointing.
She soon got a gig as a bar lady in some joint, all was going well, professionally atleast.
See mojo had a big problem, she suspected that cupid had an age old score to settle with her, getting laid had always been easy for her, but finding a woman that left her weak kneed and breathless was proving impossible, every time she fell in love, something would go wrong, she was gunning for 30 and had yet to have a serious relationship.
Eve said she attracted what she subconsciously wanted, eve was on a newage thinking tip lately that left mojo very frustrated.
'love will find you when you least expect it' advised dana, who was yet again disgustingly in love with eve.
They were gradually working their way through eve's little faux pas with nto who had finally decided to move to durban and was now happily involved with a mature indian woman. They were all learning to laugh about the past, especially the part where eve made a fool of herself serenading dana outside her flat in the thick of night, that part always left eve blushing and mumbling that atleast it had paid off.
'guys, can we focus on me here!' mojo whined, they were all in bed together trying to beat the winter chills.
'what happened to dinka from work, didn't you like her or something?' eve said with laughter in her voice.
' she is straight remember and she liked me, I have a feeling the boyfriend will pay someone to put a bullet in me one of these good days'
They all laughed.
'it's not funny guys, why do I keep attracting straight women lately', mojo's brows were knotted in genuine confusion.
'Ummm... Coz you are hot' dana piped in smiling
'coz you are so lesbian they think it'll rub off' eve winked.
' coz they are greedy,' mojo said petulantly.
'i can't wait to fall in love with a normal red blooded, full blown lesbian', she sighed.
All is well that ends well
The planAnd so eve set out to make a fool of herself, with her accomplice Bleh in toe,they wrote out a whole essay about being sorry with neon coloured ink, got hold of Eve's guitar that hadn't been tuned in a long while and off they went.
'This could get ugly you know' Eve warned omniously.
'All is fair in love and war is what they say', Bleh deadpanned.
The JourneyThe ride to Dana's seemed almost too short, Eve's heart was now beating a tattoo in her chest, Bleh on the other hand seemed to be enjoying herself, they set up camp on the little lawn in front of dana's little flat and got ready for action.
Bleh held out the big pieces of paper while Eve fiddled about with her guitar trying to get in tune, all was finally set and the charade ready to begin.
The FoolEve started singing.
In just a few seconds, most of the lights in the entire building came on and heads started to peek out.
'I'm sorry dana...' she shouted off key.
'i know I don't deserve a second chance...'
'but I don't want to live without you,even if I can...'
'Dana please forgive me'.
ForgivenessDana's head was the last one to peek out, the look on her face wasn't very encouraging however.
'i'm sorry...' eve said looking straight at her, the guitar now forgotten.
'i love you'.
Dana's head left the window and a few minutes after, she appeared at the front gate.
'i..am...sorry...that's all I can say'. Eve had tears flowing freely out of her eyes now.
Dana whipped her face gently.
'it's ok baby... Now stop singing please, you are embarrassing me'.
Bleh guffawed,' you are on point dana, if I was while,i'd be red by now'.
They kissed softly and hugged for hours, both knowing that the road ahead was going to be very shaky.
Their audience, unaware of all that, clapped excitedly.
