part 6 Cassie forbidden love

TWO WEEKS LATER The girls were focused on rather getting their father off their backs. Nobuhle on her job which she was slowly but surely getting used to. She was good at what she does and it seemed she was exactly what the company needed. She on the other hand didn't take her job that seriously. Yes she was good at it but she wasn't into it. Mr Jacobs could finally breathe. They were talking to him now and things were calm. Carol on the other hand was taking a toll . It wasn't easy making ends meet And she didn't want her son stressing. She was the parent she had to make a plan. She'd pray to God to help and even tried asking for more work but nothing came up. This 10% cut turned out to be more than she had imagined. All she ever wanted was to give her son the best there is. . BOIKANYO I know my mother And I had seen that there's something bothering her. There were times where I'd find her crying And would let it pass because I don't want to upset her. It was Saturday The last week of January. I decided to confront her. It was bad enough that I had allowed this To go on for this long. Me: Mama. Mom: My boy. Me: What's going on? Mom: Ocho jwang? Me: You seem stressed I know you not okay. She sighed. Mom: It's hard Kanyo. I'm battling to make ends meet. This salary cut is worse than I thought. Me: Oh mom. I hate it when you stress about me. Mom: And I hate it when you act like the parent. I laughed. Me: Of course I care. You my mother. I wanna take care of you just like you take care of me. Mom: But you shouldn't. Me: I have to. I think I should start providing too. Mom: You 16 you shouldn't be worrying about this. Me: But I do. You work so hard trying to take care of me and you can't manage on your own. Mom: What can you possibly do? Me: The only thing I know now is my books so I'm thinking of offering tutoring lessons. Mom: Doesn't sound like a bad idea. Plus you'll also get to learn and It won't interupt your studies. Me: Exactly. Mom: Talking about school how's Enhle? Me: She's good. Actually I think she needs tutoring lessons. We laughed. Mom: That bad? Me: She's like dumb dumb. Mom: That's not nice.
