TSAONE

This went on for a week each and every day that I got used to it.

This time he had just had me in my office. He could just come as he wishes there.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy all the love making sex or fucking however you might put it. I did.

It had been a long time after all but I hated how things were between us.

Bogosi: "You better fetch my daughter today woman. I'm not playing "

He said getting dressed. I thought he would let go of this thing of meeting Vashti but turns out I was wrong.

Me: "I'll take her today "

I said because I didn't want to fight with him anymore.

He gave me a kiss.

Bogosi: "I love you"

Me: "I love you too"

He nodded.

Bogosi: "I'll go shower and shave. She can't meet me while I'm like this"

Me: "Lucky her"

Bogosi: "Pardon? "

Me: "You've never seen the need to shave for me"

Bogosi: "Oh no Tsaone you don't get to complain "

I rolled my eyes.

Me: "Of course. After all I'm the one who left you"

Bogosi: "I had to deal with losing you and losing my only brother. I needed you to be there for me by my side"

I sighed.

Me: "Do you think it was easy? I also lost my sister to a crucial accident. I'm the one who was in extreme pains both physically and emotionally "

Bogosi: "But you said yes. No one forced you to be my wife Tsaone. I didn't do anything to you you just chose the easier way out "

Me: "I admit that it was a mistake. I was just... I don't know. I guess I wasn't spiritually strong and mature to stay"

Bogosi: "Look at me now. God doesn't speak to me no more. I'm just normal so you can rejoice "

Me: "I know God never takes his gifts"

Bogosi: "Hooray you know something "

With that said he left my office and I just sighed.

I really wished that my Bogosi would come back to me not this one.

I was very tired when I knocked off. I also had a headache probably from all the stress that Bogosi was giving me.

The first thing I did was take a long warm shower when I got to the main house.

He was nowhere to be seen.

I wore a black flare dress with my gold sandals and held my hair into a neat bun. I put on lip gloss took my phone then walked out of my... Our room. Yes he was sleeping with me.

Bogosi: "I'm going with you"

He said just after I came into the lounge.

Me: "I thought you didn't want your family knowing about you"

Bogosi: "I changed my mind "

Me: "Let's go then"

We walked to my car. He just had to get into the drivers seat so I went to the passenger side.

The ride was silent. I got off immediately when the car stopped.

Me: "Are you ready? "

Bogosi: "I am"

We went together to the door and I knocked. Bontle opened and her jaw immediately dropped.

Tears filled her eyes.

She threw herself in his arms and just cried.

"Who is it? "

That was her mom's voice as she came to the door.

Bogosi was brushing Bontle's back as she wailed.

Ntombi: "Oh my son"

She also cried and joined into the hug. I couldn't hold in my own tears.

We got into the house when they were both calm.

Ntombi: "Where were you Mara? I've even aged since you disappeared "

Bogosi: "I think what matters is that I'm back and I apologise for all the headache and pain my absence caused"

Bontle: "We're glad you're back. Thank you One"

Ntombi: "Vashti can finally meet her father "

Bogosi: "That's her name? "

They all looked at me. Well my son"

She also cried and joined into the hug. I couldn't hold in my own tears.

We got into the house when they were both calm.

Ntombi: "Where were you Mara? I've even aged since you disappeared "

Bogosi: "I think what matters is that I'm back and I apologise for all the headache and pain my absence caused"

Bontle: "We're glad you're back. Thank you One"

Ntombi: "Vashti can finally meet her father "

Bogosi: "That's her name? "

They all looked at me. Well he never asked.

Ntombi: "Yes but you can name her if you want to"

'Hello that's my daughter! ' I wanted to scream but I just kept quiet.

Bontle: "When did you come back? "

Bogosi: "I've been with Tsaone for more than a month. I'm the one who told her not to say anything "

Ntombi: "Ao mare Bogosi. "

Bogosi: "I would like to meet my daughter please"

Bontle stood up.

Bontle: "I'll bring her"

She left and shortly came with Vashti. She ran to me immediately when she saw me and I took her into my lap.

Bogosi: "She's really grown"

Vashti: "Daddy? "

She asked looking at me and I nodded. Of course I had shown her his pictures and made sure she knows him.

Me: "You can go to him"

She got off me and went to him. Bogosi even wanted to cry as he held her daughter for the first time.

They just hugged. It was a very emotional moment.

Bogosi: "Oh Tsaone how could you do this to me? All I did was love you "

He spoke so sadly and that pierced my heart.

I looked down. He made me feel like such a bad person.

'Because you are'

I heard a whisper which made me look around.

' Am I? ' I wondered.

'Yes you're a horrible person. '

Bogosi looked at me.

Bogosi: "Let's go"

He stood up holding Vashti.

Me: "OK "

Bontle: "I'll bring her clothes tomorrow "

It was a Wednesday.

We went out since I hadn't cooked and they managed to make me feel like an outsider.

They were just caught up in their own bubble as I watched.

Maybe things will get better. Just maybe. I had hope.

JACQUELINE

Me: "Two hours? I can't entertain you for such a long time"

Neo: "I paid for it"

I sighed. This was becoming exhausting.

I just needed him to let me be.

It didn't help that Vagar had taken a certain liking to him.

Me: "Couldn't you request someone else? "

Neo: "They're not you. They don't have your ass or your sexy moves which make me wonder how you are in bed. Plus six years is a long time"

I slapped him and he chuckled.

Neo: "I love that you're feisty but you'll Never do that again. I own you for the next two hours and I wouldn't mind slapping your ass until it's pink "

Me: "I could just put a bullet between your eyes and shut you up forever "

I said and shrugged.

Neo: "You're only 22. You shouldn't even be here"

Me: "And how old are you? "

Neo: "I'm old enough to be your daddy "

He said with a dirty smirk.

I rolled my eyes.

Neo: "I don't want you to dance for me. I just want us to talk "

Me: "You sure have money to play "

Neo: "I wish but I do have money to buy you the world"

I sat down on the couch. It was a one seater.

He was on the chair.

Me: "I don't have time for this"

Neo: "What exactly do you do here? Display your body for the world to gawk at and desire? "

Me: "I don't sleep with clients if that's what you're asking. I've only slept with one man and he gave me a beautiful son"

He smirked.

Neo: "I would never judge you Jacky "

Me: "I don't give a rat ass what you think of me"

Neo: "Come sit on me"

I sighed. I had no choice but to oblige.

He ran his hand on my bare back.

Neo: "I want to kiss all your pain away "

I felt his breath hit my neck. I was facing away from him.

I just had to sit there because like he said he owned me.

Neo: "I want you to do something for me"

Me: "I'm not a hooker Neo"

Neo: "I know. Face me"

I rolled my eyes and faced him my legs by his sides.

He pulled me closer.

Neo: "Are kisses allowed? "

Me: "No. They're not"

Did he listen? No. He kissed me and silly me replied. He was a good kisser for someone who had been in jail for that long. His hands brushed my back as he slowly kissed me.

I would be lying if I said I didn't get turned on.

I broke the kiss and got off him. He looked confused.

Me: "I'm sorry I can't do this"

I ran out.

I felt like I had betrayed Chris.

Vagar: "And? "

Me: "I no longer want to do private shows"

Vagar: "It's not up to you "

Me: "That or I'll quit "

I said with my arms folded. He sighed.

Vagar: "Fine. Go to the stage"

I gave him a fake grin then walked to the stage.

Great.

NEO

I finally gathered myself and got up.

I really thought we were going somewhere.

She was just giving me mixed signals.

I mean after she cooked for me she never answered my calls and I only saw her again this time after a whole week.

Anyway I just walked out.

I went to my car and drove to my house.

The following day a Thursday I prepared myself for work

Raphael didn't want to be bathed and I had helped him set an alarm on his phone.

Yes I bought him a phone so I can reach him if needs be and vise versa.

He didn't want to take a lunch box but wanted money instead.

He was really older than his age.

I was trying not to think of Jacky but of course I couldn't.

Maybe I had pushed too much. Maybe I should have been slow with my approach.

But what if I had pushed her too far? Oh but I didn't care. I was going to make her mine though she was a bit too young.

I didn't want anyone else.

I also didn't want to scare her away.

Raphael: "Morning dad"

Me: "Morning "

Raphael: "I miss Mom and Vashti when can I visit? "

Me: "You'll go at the end of the term. I'm sure they miss you too"

He smiled.

Raphael: "Thank you "

Me: "Anything for you"

I said pulling his cheek.

Raphael: "I'm not a kid dad"

Me: "You're six. You're exactly that"

He rolled his eyes and I laughed.

I wonder where he got this attitude.
