I never ever thought this would happen to me. I never thought in a million years that I’d be the starring in this dramatic and thrilling situation!
This is me: young, attractive, successful entrepreneur, socialite, athletic, loved, a pious son, and of course I’m straight.
And this is my story:
On some random afternoon, feeling so unproductive at work, I took on the social media to just browse around until I landed on a certain page and that’s how I met *Jill.
An attractive aspiring model who is also a part time Kindergarten teacher – harmless right?
A brief insight into my love life… I’m getting to that age where my journey to find a partner in life is taking a toll. It’s hard to find someone that’s going to stand by you and take that faithful vow to be in a relationship with you “until death does you part.”
How long can I wait for the “one”? Last time I stared at myself in a steamy bathroom mirror, it was clear, I wasn’t getting any younger. I’m committed to finding the “one,” but until I do…there’s something called sexual needs that need to be fulfilled every now and then you know.
Back to my story… New to this online dating thing, I suggested that our first date be at a very public place. So *Jill and I ended up spending hours talking about how much we had in common over a romantic candlelit dinner in Westlands. It was wonderful, and we met many times over the next few months before I asked her over to my place.
Finally, *Jill came over. She looked absolutely dashing that evening. Then as is normal with ladies she asked if she could go freshen up, and I obliged and waited for her on the couch. Strangely, I could hear her making a call in the bathroom at the time, but I dismissed it and now ultimately regret ever letting her into my home.
Moments later, *Jill and I launched into a tight embrace and we kissed ever so passionately…that’s when we were suddenly interrupted by a thunder-like knock at the door.
When I opened the door to see who it was… it was a bit too late. Two men pushed right past me and ended up landing a punch on my right temple, knocking me unconscious.
When I came to, I found myself naked and bound with duct tape sitting on the couch next to *Jill who was also naked. On my other side was a strange man who shock of shocks was naked as well. I thought I was in the middle of a robbery until I noticed *Jill and the strange guy weren’t bound and that one of the intruders was holding a camera. What the hell was going on?
Then for the next five minutes, I remained silent in disbelief: *Jill and the other unbound guy posed suggestively next to my genitalia showing the camera their backs as one intruder took photographs of us, my face, and body. I thought this only happened to prominent people with a lot of money and a lot to lose.
The other intruder took my Blackberry and shouted through his mask that if I didn’t pay them Sh 200,000 in 3 months they would send all of the images to my entire contact list. This contact list includes everyone in my life including my folks, relatives, bosses etc. Soon after I was left alone in my house that now felt like a porn movie shoot scene.
Three months have since passed, and I am about to make my final installment of Sh 50,000 via M-Pesa to the intruders and that girl *Jill.
I have always thought I was too strong to be a victim, and never have I ever thought I would be paying off blackmailers, but this is my reality. I cannot afford to let my contacts see those images. If they did, my bankers would probably stop approving my projects and my hard-earned reputation as a respectable son and businessman would disintegrate back into my dreams. Aaarrgh!!!! all this because of a few minutes of boredom on that unproductive afternoon.
