Her scarred psyche.

Chapter 7

I finally got hold of momwe spoke and she was fine . My heart was at ease. She explained and apologised for not telling me that she was hospitalised. As much as I was convinced I felt like she was hiding something from me because she did not tell me what was wrong but I let it be. 


Later that day Siya came to my place. I wasn't quit sure how I felt about what happened between Onke and Siya that night But I was sure it wasn't a good feeling.

" Hey chommie Is Onke here? " Siya asked before she walked in.

" Come in don't worry he is not here" I moved aside so that she could pass.

" why would I be worried? I was just asking " She frowned.

" After that night of the party I thought you wouldn't want to see him " I stated .

" you speaking in riddles " Siya responded. " Drop the act Onke told me what happened that night" I told her.

She popped her eyes " I don't know what you are talking about"

" You don't know that you drunk yourself out of your senses and threw yourself on Onke?"

" What!? I did all that? Oh God! What does Onke think of me now? Friend

Onke told me what happened that night" I told her.

She popped her eyes " I don't know what you are talking about"

" You don't know that you drunk yourself out of your senses and threw yourself on Onke?"

" What!? I did all that? Oh God! What does Onke think of me now? Friend you have to believe me. I only drank two glasses. I don't know what happened then. I hate myself right now." She then flopped herself on the couch and buried her face in her hands.

I motioned myself towards her. I kinda felt for her.

" You don't have to hate yourself These things happen. You have to be careful Siya. What if you would have threw yourself on someone else other than Onke? You have to apologize to him."

" For what? No friend I can't" She fumbled with her hands.

" Why? What is it Siya?" I questioned.

" I like him" she answered

" what do you mean?" I was shocked.

"Exactly that and now he probably thinks I am a hooker or something" I didn't know what to say.

I was still dazed by the little confession She just made. I don't know but I was kinda hurt.

" Since you guys are close would you please put in few good words for me? Please chommy " she knelt and pleaded.

I was taken back again.

"Friend?" Siya snapped her fingers to destruct me. My head involuntarily nodded . Siya immediately stood up and wrapped her arms around me in a one big hug. She was happy I could feel it.
