I was happy when he dropped me off at my dorm on Sunday.
I hated how he acted with that girl and even giving her his number just like that.
I wasn't expecting such from him and I had a feeling it wasn't the last time we see or hear from her.
Bryan: "I hate leaving when things are like this"
We were still in his car.
Me: "Like what? "
Bryan: "You're mad at me Vic and I hate it"
Me: "For someone Who's father is from South Africa it amazes me how little you're trying to learn my name. It's Phenyo. P H E N Y O"
Bryan: "But you've never had any problem with Victory"
Me: "Now I do and you know so a little effort will be much appreciated "
Bryan: "OK Pheno "
I groaned rolling my eyes.
Bryan: "I'll try. I promise. I'll phone my half sister and ask her to help"
Me: "Now we're talking "
Bryan: "I want us to be fine"
Me: "I don't want a repeat of the Anna situation. Her coming onto you like that and you entertaining her in my presence. "
Bryan: "It'll never happen again "
Bryan: "A kiss? "
I rolled my eyes and we kissed.
A month passed and things were rather calm.
I was writing my preparatory exams.
I hardly saw Bryan because I had to focus but we'd meet on weekends.
Anyway it was Monday and I wasn't writing.
Michelle decided to barge into my room with some girl.
She grinned at me.
Me: "And then? Vroeg so? "
Michelle: "I'm here regarding the dance man "
Me: "Prom? "
Michelle: "This is Segow. "
They both sat on my bed.
Me: "What's up? "
Sego: "So my sister knows this tailor guy who made her dress so I was thinking we go for him"
Me: "Isn't it too early for that? "
Michelle: "He's in high demand. It's better we talk now so we can get our dresses in time"
Me: "I don't even know what I want"
Michelle: "We'll ask him to send us some of his work. But he's quite expensive. Not the David Tlale expensive but you know what I mean "
Me: "I'll talk to my sister Ke "
Sego: "I'll talk to Katli too"
Michelle: "Amazing. Go dress up we going out"
Me: "It's Monday "
Michelle: "We're not writing and it won't be for long "
Me: "Fine "
I changed into a short with a T-shirt and sneakers.
I wore a cap and we could finally leave.
Michelle: "I need toiletries "
We went to buy her toiletries while I bought myself some junk.
I made sure to buy lots of wine gums cause I consumed them through my studying sessions.
Michelle: "Is that Bryan? "
She asked after we paid.
I looked at where she was pointing and it was him.
He was with the Anne chick.
Me: "I'm not surprised "
Sego: "You're too calm "
Me: "It might be innocent. I don't want to stress while I'm writing exams "
I also didn't know why I was calm.
We went out and when he saw me he looked down.
I just walked away.
We went to McDonald's for some food. We ordered Big Mac's with shakes.
Michelle: "I really don't get you. I mean you seem perfectly fine"
Me: "Can we just drop this? "
Sego: "But I agree with Michelle. I would have gone there and caused some havoc"
Me: "Not me. I need to go to the toilet "
I stood up and went to the toilet. I did my business then washed my hands.
I bumped into some guy when I got out.
Me: "Sorry "
Him: "Better watch where you going next time. Nxa! "
He looked at me then clicked his tongue walking away.
I just went back to the girls and we started eating while just talking.
Some people have attitude for days.
My phone rang. It was Bryan.
Me: "Hello? "
Bryan: "Hi uhm... Are you still here? "
Me: "Yeah but we leaving after. I gotta study "
Bryan: "Look about -"
Me: "You don't have to explain. I'm not mad"
Me: "Bye. I love you"
Bryan: "I love you too"
I hung up after that.
Michelle: "She's crazy "
She said looking at Sego.
Sego: "I agree"
I just chuckled.
I hung up and sighed.
Brenda came and handed me a small can of coke.
Brenda: "What's going on? "
Me: "Eish baby mama drama"
Brenda: "What happened this time? "
Me: "She's mad because I haven't been home in two weeks now. I tried explaining that it gets busy from this month but she doesn't barge"
Brenda: "It's just the hormones messing up with her"
Me: "That doesn't mean she should drive me crazy "
Me: "It's not funny! "
Brenda: "I just wonder how it's going to be when the baby is here. She's just about three months pregnant and already stressing you. What about the next six? "
Me: "Don't mention it. His father is also up my throat about damages. I'm just tired. I need a break "
Brenda: "Are you guys together now? "
Me: "I think it's what she wants but I'm not there"
Anyway we continued working while I made a few sketches.
I went to buy myself some lunch since I Skipped it.
Arriving back I had a guest.
She smiled at me.
She came and hugged me.
It was just an innocent hug.
Me: "It's been a while "
Katleho: "I know. How are you? "
Me: "I'm fine just too busy "
Katleho: "Well I'm coming with more work"
Me: "Oh? "
Katleho: "My little sister and her friends are having their prom soon and they would like you to design their dresses"
I thought of my coming child and how expensive raising a baby might be.
This was a blessing.
Me: "OK anything in mind? "
Katleho: "I'll be lying but I'll give them your number so they can call you. She wanted you to agree first"
Me: "Please do and thanks"
Katleho: "You don't have to thank me. You're good at what you do"
Me: "Thanks for the compliment ge"
Katleho: "It's my pleasure. We should do drinks sometime "
Me: "I'd like that "
Katleho: "Good. I'll call you"
Me: "I'll walk you out"
Katleho: "Oh no. It's cool. I'm with my boyfriend and he's just too crazy "
Me: "OK go well"
I watched her leave.
If only she knew how she was haunting me in my dreams.
Brenda: "She doesn't look like your type"
I don't even know when she arrived here.
Me: "Did you have to? "
Brenda: "I'm just saying. I saw how you were looking at her butt"
Me: "I wasn't looking at her butt"
Brenda: "Mm. Keep saying that "
Then she walked away.
I had to fucken focus.
