STORY: VARIETY – THE SPICE OF LIFE

Narrative | classroom-ready

A youngster. A charmer. Easy on the eyes.

A therapist. Looked up to, admired and respected.

He goes by Mojito.

One more thing you need to know about him before you make up your mind about the guy.

He takes a new pick-up to bed every single night.

A serial one-night-stander, that’s who he is.

He won’t rest till he finds the right one to keep him warm at night. This night.

But all of them seem not to mind.

He must be doing something right.

No protests.

No jealousy.

No tearful exchanges.

He’s got something going for him, hasn’t he?
