Kuto’s life was filled with disgust. He had always been a loner, and now he was in Zambia, far away from his home in Zimbabwe. The only thing that kept him going was the hope that someday he would find someone to share his life with.
One day, as Kuto was walking through the streets of Lusaka, he saw a man wearing a grey bowler hat. The man’s hair color was black, and he had a shaved face. He was wearing a red and yellow t-shirt, and Kuto could see that he had a silver helix piercing on left ear.
