part 1 every tear is a waterfall

Advice's pov It all started when i was only 19 years old...i was just a teen who was going through stages of life..i made up my mind that i was going to study at Tswane university of technology which is at Pretoria.im originally from Mpumalang at...yes i passed my matric with flying colours..by then i was friends with Fortune who was my day one nigga..she was always there to see me through..she cared for me and saw me go through it all.. I am from a family where as life is not sweet as honey..i have a little brother whom i love so dearly.and then my mom and dadi cant say the same about them.i have struggled in their hands for as long as i can remember..they never cared about my school or what i do in life..My dad was a drunkard and my mom aswell.they were like a match made in hell.but when my little brother was born they reduced their drinking habit and started looking for jobs..my mom became a domestic worker and my dad managed to get a job at shoprite..it wasnt anything big but atleast they were putting food on the table.they showed my little bro the kind of love i was never shown and that truly hurt me.i always lock myself in the room to separate myself from the outside world...social networks are my best friends.so someday i decided to check out dating sites because i wasnt interested in boys around my place and luckily i met one guy who was different from them all and his name is Tebogo. Our conversation. Tebza: hey there beautiful Me: hi Tebza: im Tebogo from Johannesburg..im 24 in age and im looking for a lady whom i can be in a serious relationship with and later make a wife Me: mmm im Advice and im 19.im also looking for a serious relationship. What was i saying mara? I havent even been in a relationship before. Tebza: can i have you numbers so that we can talk over a phone call. Me: 071....... Tebza: thanks.i will keep in touch. I looked at his picture and damn i was impressed..he was all cute and mascular because he put a pic where he is wearing a tight shirt that show his muscles. Mom: Addy are you done packing? Time waits for no one..your bus will leave you behind Me: im coming.. Yes today i am leaving for Pretoria since im going to university.and im happy to say FREEDOM at last. Bontle's POV Well as i said life was never welcoming for me.it threw stones at me the minute i was born.my parents where very much in love and they got married a year after i was born.my dad's kind of job demanded him to travel alot and out of the country and sometimes he will leave for a long time.when i was a year and 8months old he had to travel and mom was sick so mom went back to her parents with me since dad was leaving..she was very ill to a point whereas dad had to be summoned home but there was no way to do that because back then only letters where used and phones were expensive..besides my family was not wealthy.so mom passed on and she wasnt burried since dad was not home which means they waited for his return and when he got back he was told of what has happened and he didnt take the matter easy but instead suffered a heart attack and passed on aswell..mind you at the time i didnt know anything about all this..so my parents were burried on the same day and after their funeral my grandparents from my dad's side wanted nothing to do with me so my grandparents from my mom's side took me in. As time went on i grew up..My mother's sister was also living with us along with her kids..They ill treated me and told me words such as you are stupid

As time went on i grew up..My mother's sister was also living with us along with her kids..They ill treated me and told me words such as you are stupidyou are evil that is why no one wants you..no wonder you dont pass at school.yes the situations at home somehow affected me in my school work and even the fact that on parents meetings and report collection days other kids came with their parents and i showed up alone really hurt me.but i learned to survive and do me...when i turned 18 and started with my matric i told myself that im not as dumn as they point me out to be.i worked hard to push my grades up so that i can pass and get a bursary to study at a university and indeed i passed and with symbols i never thought i would get and my aunt's child Luthando the one who always mocked me and called me stupit failed..it really shocked me because she is bright and intellegent just that she mixed up with wrong croud and boys..im from the city of Cape town and today im going to Pretoria for school which is being paid by the bursary i got..i bid farewell to my family at the airport and off i left. Advice Some part of me was happy that luckily i will be near Tebogo and i will be seeing more of him..atleast our relationship can be simple since distance wont be the problem.my phone rang disturbing me from my thoughts.it was Tebogo calling me with the work phone Tebza: i hope you have arrived Me: i have and im busy settling down in my room just waiting to meet my room mate Tebza: okay..we will talk.im at work Me: okay. From home to here is a 4hour drive.... A knock came through the door and i opened.some girl walked in holding her bags with some two guys..they put the bags and left. Her: Hi ke nna Bontle and ke roommate ya hao..(Hi im Bontle and im your roommate) Me: hi ba mpitsa Advice mara Addy e shap.(they call me Advice but Addy is okay) Bontle: nice meeting you Me: Nice meeting you too. Bontle I was surprised to find a roommate who speaks the same language as me.i really hope that we are gonna be besties and get along.i have heard alot of stories about roommates fights and thats not what i want..i travelled all this way to study and make a name for myself expecially after all the painful stages i went through..
