Jamal: "Mom are you OK? "
Me: "I'm fine"
Of course I wasn't. I had been fantasising about Neo.
I hadn't seen him since I walked out on him that day then suddenly I had all these thoughts.
It was just a kiss but I couldn't forget about it.
I swear I felt something when our tongues twirled and danced.
Maybe it was all in my mind.
Me: "Don't you want to go out? Visit someone for a few days? "
Jamal: "Away? "
Me: "Maybe just for a week"
It was a Friday.
Me: "Go pack. I need to make a call "
Jamal: "OK "
I took out my phone and called Tsaone.
I knew she was in distress. I could hear her prayers sometimes as her spirit cried for help.
She answered on the second ring.
Me: "Thought I'd let you know we coming this time. I'm trying to be polite "
Tsaone: "It's so unlike you "
Me: "I know but I saw being kind doesn't hurt. I think Mrs Makhe is having an impact on me"
Tsaone: "Good because it's a good one"
Me: "How's the husband? "
Tsaone: "We'll get there "
Me: "And I see Lindi is resting in peace now. You and Neo really let go"
Tsaone: "It was time. She'll always be in our hearts "
Me: "I'll see you when I get there "
I hung up and went to join Jamal. He wanted to take everything like we're leaving forever.
That made me laugh and he turned to me with a frown.
Me: "I'll take it from here"
He smiled at me.
Jamal: "Can I go pour myself juice? "
Me: "Yes. You can also have some of those muffins "
Jamal: "You're the best"
He kissed my cheek and ran out.
I packed a medium sized bag for both of us. It also had shoes.
I then went out with it and my phone and car keys.
Me: "You done? "
I took the remaining muffins with me and we left.
I made sure to lock and ensured all windows were closed.
We got into my car and drove off. I bought him snacks at town then we left.
It was in the late afternoon when I parked my car In her yard.
She had let me in. I got out with Jamal then took out the bag from the back.
She was at the door with a smile.
Me: "Something doesn't feel right here"
Tsaone: "Oh? "
Me: "Anyway where's the prophet? He should help shed some light "
Tsaone: "Really Jacky? "
He smiled at her. Tsaone took our bag.
Me: "Oh I hope you guys like muffins"
Tsaone: "This is my daughter Vashti"
Me: "The fuck does that mean? "
She rolled her eyes.
Me: "Hey Vee"
The little girl just smiled.
Me: "The father is a yellow bone? "
Me: "Where is he? "
Tsaone: "In the bedroom "
Me: "You just had sex with your daughter in the house? "
Tsaone: "Of course not. He's showering. You can't talk like that in front of the kids"
I rolled my eyes and threw my ass on the couch.
Me: "They're not even paying us any attention. "
Jamal was probably excited to have someone to play with and talk with.
The man came and he was topless.
Him: "We have a guest? "
For a man of God he had too much darkness surrounding him.
I half smiled.
Tsaone: "This is Bogosi Bogosi that's Jacky "
Bogosi: "I'm the husband "
Me: "I know "
We shook hands.
Me: "So how long are you planning to stay angry? "
I said sitting down again.
Bogosi: "Excuse me? "
Me: "I can feel your bitterness from her. I think Tee didn't force you to sign those divorce papers "
I put my legs on the coffee table.
Bogosi: "Who the fuck is this coming here to disrespect me like this? And wena Tsaone you're just allowing this"
Me: "Ohh calm down "
Bogosi: "Mmh. What are you? Were you sent here? "
Me: "Deliver me then if you feel I'm possessed "
I said rolling my eyes.
He just clicked his tongue and walked away.
Tsaone: "That went well"
Me: "And you fell in love with that? Sies "
Nathan: "Thanks for joining us man"
Me: "I must say I never imagined myself drinking with white people "
Ethan: "We're not white. Our father's genes just decided to dominate "
Me: "He Must have strong genes "
Nathan: "You got no idea. All my mom's kids look like him. "
Raphael was with Ethan's wife. She was pregnant so couldn't go anywhere.
Me: "Are you guys ever apart? "
Nathan was with Jessica all cooed up.
We were at the club and just chilling.
Nathan: "She don't want any hoes looking at what's hers"
Jessica rolled her eyes.
Jessica: "I would have stayed behind with my babies. He's too clingy "
Ethan: "They always come up with these kind of excuses. I think Nathan is worried she'll find a girl "
Me: "Huh? "
I was very confused.
Ethan: "She's a recovering lesbian "
Jessica: "You make it sound like I was sick"
Me: "Damn you just so girlish with the dress and that body I would not have thought "
Nathan: "She wasn't like this when we met. She had turned herself into a man even faking a deep voice "
Her voice was just too soft.
Jessica: "OK Now we can stop talking about him. Let's talk about Ethan and when he'll stop fucking Lexy "
Ethan: "What if my wife was here? "
Jessica: "She's not. I guess you're one lucky bastard "
Nathan: "Let's rather get drunk and remember we're at a club "
Me: "I'll drink to that "
I went home around 1am.
I was going to fetch Raphael in the morning.
I took a shower then got dressed in my pyjama bottoms.
I then went to the kitchen and poured myself some water.
I was missing Jacky.
I decided to call her hoping she's at work.
I didn't stop trying until she picked up.
Jacky: "What? "
It sounded like she was sleeping.
Me: "Are you not working? "
Jacky: "What do you want? "
Me: "Your sleepy voice sounds so sexy. I want you. You know that "
Jacky: "I'm far away from your reach. I want to sleep Neo"
Me: "I love how you call my name. I can imagine you moaning it"
I swear I heard a change in her breathing. She took a few seconds before replying.
Then she hung up.
I sent her a text.
"Where are you? "
Of course she didn't reply.
I decided to go sleep since it was late already.
I woke up in the morning and got myself ready for church.
It was Sunday and I had no reason to skip church since Bogosi's family knew about him
I got dressed in a white high-waisted skirt with a black silk top.
I wore red heel sandals and a doek.
Bogosi got into our room as I was fixing my face.
Bogosi: "Your friend... I want her gone"
Me: "She's not going anywhere "
Bogosi: "I'm not asking you Tsaone I'm telling you! "
Me: "I love having Jacky around and I've missed her"
Bogosi: "This is my house Tsaone and I don't want her here"
Me: "Tough luck because she's not going anywhere "
We were now standing facing each other hand on.
Bogosi: "You're going to disobey me? "
Me: "You're being impossible "
I breathed out.
Me:" I want to go to church and just... I need to be in God's presence. Excuse me"
I went out with my bag and phone.
Jacky was making breakfast with Vashti.
Me: "Morning "
Bogosi was on my tail. He sat down in the kitchen counter.
Bogosi: "Why are you here? "
Jacky: "I don't have time to entertain the devil or his agents"
Bogosi: "She's insulting me! "
Me: "Bogosi it's too early for this. Definitely not in front of my daughter"
Bogosi: "She's my daughter too"
Me: "Baby let's go get ready for church "
I took her and left with her.
I wasn't in the mood for Bogosi really.
Definitely not on a Sunday.
