A Messy Affair at the Mara

Day 1
It was going to be a good safari, the tour guide had promised in his broken English.

Then why was their blood on the carpet in my room?

I called reception and reported my findings. I had to repeat it thrice for her to understand what I was saying. The next thing I knew, the hotel manager and
somebody else I had never seen before were knocking on my door like there was a fire.

"I've just discovered it, when we came back from the game drive," I told them wiping the blood I had already touched from my fingers with a handkerchief that was mercifully not white.

Was I bleeding anywhere, the manager asked. As if I would bleed and not know it.

And the questions went on and on. Just questions and no answers on my first trip to Africa and this beautiful lodge out in the most famous wild game sanctuary in the world, the Maasai Mara.

I still couldn't believe that I was actually here. At the beginning it had seemed like one of those exotic dreams I was going to wake up from at any minute. Now this warm human blood on my carpet had jolted me back to reality. I was in the African bush and somebody had just gotten injured badly and maybe had...

I tried not to think about it but I just couldn't get it out of my mind. This was blood, so there had to be either a person who required medical attention or... a body somewhere.

"Are the lion's here man-eaters," I asked, rudely interrupting their endless questions.

The room went very quiet for a second or so. The two men exchanged uncomfortable looks. For the first time I noticed the hotel managers deep scar just above his spectacled, large round eyes.

The other man's shining ebony face had broken into a sweat. He reached for a handkerchief in his navy blue jacket which was at least a size too small.

Then they both blurted out something at the same time. I didn't get it and neither did I care to because it was at that precise moment I remembered my bride.
