MINENHLE I paced around my room trying to figure out what the hell is going on with this guy. I mean Troy loves me. I thought he'd be happy that I'm concentrating on my school work. Yes I've never said no to him but he could have at least saw where I was coming from. I know we haven't spent time together In a while but it's because I didn't want to disappoint dad any further. The way he's been acting like I was even scared of him. Buhle: Guess what! She entered into my room screaming. Me: What? I wasn't in the mood for this. I was thinking about Troy. I love him I can't lose him but I also can't lose my dad. This Was so confusing. Buhle: I'm getting married! She said flashing her ring in my face. She screamed again annoying the shit outta me. Me: Congrats. I said sarcastically. Buhle: And then Wena? I sighed and threw myself on top of my bed. Me: It's Troy. Buhle: What about him? Me: He's being mean. Buhle: That's bad. Me: I know. I groaned. Me: My life is so complicated. Buhle: Can we talk about me now? I'm getting married. I chuckled. Me: So who's this mysterious guy? Buhle: His name is Mandla. I think I love him. Me: How long have you guys been together? Buhle: Two weeks. But Argh it doesn't matter . He's my own African man. Me: He's black? Buhle: Black dark and strong. Me: Really? Why would you go for a dark guy? Buhle: Duuh.. He's like my own Shaka Zulu. She said rolling her eyes. Me: I don't even wanna know. Let's hope dad approves of this marriage. She started biting her nails. Buhle: I don't think he will Me: With good reason. You deserve better. Buhle: You don't know him you've never met him. I don't even know why I'm discussing this with you. Me: Well hello? You don't have any friends. Buhle: And I bet you do. Me: What's your point? Buhle: We not any different. Me: So am I your maid of honor? She grinned. Buhle: Of course. You're Fabulous after all. Me: Well you know me. Buhle: I'm getting married. We both screamed. Okay I was genuinely happy for her now. At least things were going well on her side. And I'm going to be a maid of honor - That's amazing . I went to shower an hour later. I had decided to go to the club but leave immediately after his performance. At least I would have been there. I wore a red sleeveless jumpsuit which reached my ankles. It had an opening at the front and completely backless. It looked good on me. I curled my weave and left it loose. I put on my makeup finished it off with lipstick then sprayed some parfume. The cab hooted. What a nerve. Me: I'm coming! I shouted like He could hear me. I took my purse which had every thing including my phone then left. Luckily there was no one downstairs. The driver got out and opened the door for me. I got in. I didn't even drink the wine since I was planning not to go over the limit. We arrived at the club. Troy was the one to open the door for me. Troy: Look at you looking all hot and sexy. I faked a smile. I was expecting an apology. He didn't talk to me nice and I thought he'd apologize. Troy: Thank you for coming. Like I had a choice. Me: Anything for you baby. I kissed his cheek. Troy: Uh-uh. I'm not a kid. He pinned me against the car and gave me a mind blowing kiss. We broke it off breathing heavily. Me: My lipstick. He chuckled. Troy: You'll reapply it. Let's go I'm about to perform. I didn't join him in stage. I was just watching him perform. I was still holding the glass of champagne I got when I arrived Troy: You okay? Me: Can we leave? Troy: The night is still young. Me: I just.. I'm not feeling well. Troy: You look fine to me. Me: But I don't feel fine. Troy: We'll go to my place. I know exactly what can make you better. Me: You do? Troy: Yes baby. He brushed my thigh. I knew exactly what he was thinking. Me: Let's go then. He took my hand and we left. The crowd was a bit reserved I'm about to perform. I didn't join him in stage. I was just watching him perform. I was still holding the glass of champagne I got when I arrived Troy: You okay? Me: Can we leave? Troy: The night is still young. Me: I just.. I'm not feeling well. Troy: You look fine to me. Me: But I don't feel fine. Troy: We'll go to my place. I know exactly what can make you better. Me: You do? Troy: Yes baby. He brushed my thigh. I knew exactly what he was thinking. Me: Let's go then. He took my hand and we left. The crowd was a bit reserved so we didn't have much trouble getting out. He was tipsy. I didn't even finish my glass. The driver parked outside his house then opened my door for me I got out. Troy also got out and we walked inside the house hand in hand. Troy: I missed you. He picked me up And I wrapped my feet around his waist. We kissed going up the stairs. He threw me on the bed getting on top of me. Me: Baby I.. Troy: Shh love. Let's enjoy our night. I haven't seen you in days. Me: I need to get home. Troy: Don't fuck with me Minni. Me: But my dad. Troy: What about him? Me: I'm scared. Troy: You worry too much. Let's enjoy this time make love. That's how babies are made. Me: Oh. Troy: Our baby. Made out of love. He unzipped my jumpsuit and took it off. I wasn't wearing a bra. Me: Troy. Troy: What now? Me: I really have to go. Troy: Don't piss me off Minenhle! You'll fucken go in the morning! Me: okay baby I'm sorry. Troy: Make love to me. Me: Okay. We went back to kissing. I was the one on top of him now. . BOIKANYO. It was a Sunday now. Mom and I were getting ready for church. I was getting dressed. I just wore jeans and a blue shirt. I wore my formal shoes then brushed my hair. Me: Morning Mom Mom: Morning how did you sleep? Me: Good you? Mom: Peacefully. When are you meeting with Mr Jacobs? Me: Tomorrow after school. Mom: I wish you all the best. I know how difficult he can be. Me: I just hope he'll be reasonable. Mom: Let's hope he'll be. Sit. I'll dish up some porridge for you. I obliged and sat down. We ate over a light conversation. The walk to church wasn't that long I woke up on Monday and got ready for school. I was a bit anxious about the meeting with Mr Jacobs. This man had been nothing but horrible to my mom for no reason and I just hoped he doesn't do the same to me. I had no homeworks on Friday so there was nothing I forgot. I got dressed in my uniform and went to the kitchen. After eating breakfast I went to school. Khaya: Look who's early today Me: Wena Joe. Khaya: What did I do?. Me: You got me in trouble le Enhle and she wants you to back off. Khaya: I can't do that. She's like.. My Soulmate. . I chuckled. Me: Soulmate? Oh please. Khaya: You know nothing about soulmates. Me: The bottom line Is she's not interested. Khaya: Gosh her body. She was wearing this tight jumpsuit at the club on Saturday. Dawg... Me: You look like a thirsty dog. Khaya: oh I'm thirsty for her. I need her to come quench my thirst. Enhle: I hope you not talking about me. Khaya: Sthandwasam my heart gets pleased everytime I see you. Enhle: Merely breathing the same air as you make me wanna puke. I laughed. Botho: Miss Jacobs. That red number you had on on Saturday He bit his lip. Enhle rolled her eyes and groaned. Enhle: You guys are so annoying. She then walked into the class. We just laughed. Me: Leave her alone. Khaya: Never. I just chuckled shaking my head. After school came sooner than I anticipated. Enhle came to me. I knew I had to do this. Enhle: We leaving with my driver. Me: okay. We went to the car. My heart was beating pretty fast. Upon arrival I knew I had to put on a brave face. Mr Jacobs was one scary man. I shivered by just looking at him. Enhle: Daddy this is Boikanyo. The guy I told you about. Mr Jacobs: You Carol's son? I nodded. Mr Jacobs: You can't speak? I cleared my throat. Me: Yes I am her son. Enhle: He's number one in our class and Grade 11. I can't afford to fail Grade 11 again daddy and he can help. Mr Jacobs: Can't he speak for himself? Me: Umm.. I.. I believe I can help Enhle realize her potential and I can work with her in ensuring that she understands whatever problem she might have regarding all her subjects. Mr Jacobs: And I'll have to pay you? Me: Umm yes for my efforts. Enhle: I'm thinking R1000. Is it fine? Me: Umm.. Enhle: R1500. Mr Jacobs: And why are you the one speaking? Enhle: It's my future daddy don't be stingy. Mr Jacobs: R1000 for now. I'll give you the R500 upon results. Enhle: Yess! She hugged her father. How I wish I also had my dad. The money they were offering was beyond what I had imagined. It was definitely going to help. Mr Jacobs: You'll have to come here for those lessons. We have a driver who'll drive you home when you done. Me: Okay sir. Mr Jacobs: You better not disappoint me. Cause I'd hate to be disappointed. I'm taking a risk with you don't make me regret it Me: You won't air. Mr Jacobs: Good. Now leave. Me: Goodbye. I stood up and left. Mom was in the kitchen. Mom: How did it go?. Me: Fantastic. I'll be earning R1500. Mom: Wow that's amazing Kanyo. Me: I know mom. Mom: And so unlike Mr Jacobs. He must really want his daughter to pass. To pay you so much money Me: It's all thanks to Enhle. Mom: She's a good girl. Reminds me of her mother. I just hate the life she's living and her boyfriend. Me: okay mom I have to go. Mom: Okay boy. Don't cook. Me: Alright. I hugged her and left.
