" so let get to business " I said 

" let me call my wife to bring us something to drink " he said  the man was loaded the house just the cars and everything .. The kids came running I admired kids and I have always wanted to have my own .. He sent one of the kids to go call the wife .. We started talking and a woman opened the door when I looked at her it was mapalo's friend she looked at me and she was so shocked . " Mr Nkosi how are you long time " she said with a smile .

 "You know my wife " mr mike asked 

"Yes that's mapalo's friend remember the one she mentioned some years ago " she said

" so where is mapalo " I asked  

They looked at each other and smiled .

I was Waiting for an answer .

" mapalo is at school she is having her final paper today " she said 

I smiled .

Jane excused herself as we talked with Mr mike he wanted me to be his family lawyer he made me make a will for him the man was loaded that he even failed to divide most assets amount his family but before a week I was done he went through it and signed it I left a copy with him while I got the original .the all one week that I was here I have never seen mapalo even when I wanted her so  bad I could wait for her outside for hours but she never showed up .

"Jane please even if its just once I promise I will never bother  her I just want to know that she is fine " I said 

"She is fine don't worry "she said 

" I want to see with my two eyes " I said .

She got her phone and dialled a number . 

" you can wait for her she will be here in the next 30 minutes the driver will go pick her up " she said 

I nooded .

She gave me a glass of juice after like 45 minutes .. Mapalo showed up  

"Aunty Palo " one of the kids shouted .

I just heard whispers and than she walked it I got up and hugged her she didn't even hug me back but I didn't care she was safe .

" hey how are you she was safe .

" hey how are you I have missed you " I said 

She smiled and took a seat I knelt in front of her while I held her legs. 

"Am fine sir dumi what are you doing here " she asked 

" I came here to work for Mr mike I didn't know you were here tell me why did you leave " I asked 

"Why do you want to know Dumi huh? Even if I tell you there is nothing you will do about it " she said 

Atleast I will know what I did " I said 

She took a deep breath and stood up .

"Mapalo" I said 

" your father wanted to kill me " she did 

I laughed 

" you see " she said

" why would my father what to kill you and for what "I asked 

" I don't know you crazy girlfriend ordered it " she said 

"Which girlfriend " I asked 

"Oh so you have many " she asked

" her name is selinashe told your father to kill mapalo or she will be expose him for something he did " Jane said 

" you ladies are crazy my father can't do that you don't have a proper explanation for why you left now I understand I was just a meal ticket for you you only wanted money from me now I know you never loved me" I said 

" you see what I told you he will never believe me he will never  choose between me and his father blood is thicker than water " mapalo said

Jane walked out when one of the kid started crying .

" so it was your plan all along to use me and come here with your friend I thought you loved me " I said 

" believe what you what Dumi you will never believe me " she said

" show me the evidence if its true I will get my father arrested with no doubt " I said

"Just tell me you are happy here with some guy not that nonsense you could have just told me Dumi you ain't my type am just using you I don't love you " I  said

She turned and looked away 

" I loved you and  all you did is lie against my father really if you wanted his money why didn't you agree to be his side chick " I asked 

She slapped me .. " you will not disrespect me like that I love you and I still do am telling you the truth and all you can do is tell.me that " she cried now I felt really bad for I said.. I tried holding her but she stopped me . " you better leave and I am sorry if I used you ." she said 

Her phone rung I looked at it cause it was put next to me and I was saved "babe" 

"I think its finally over " I said 

"Just leave you have a girlfriend waiting for you" she said 

"Am sorry I was just angry okay please forgive me " I said

" she wiped her tears and walked away ...I have never cried so  much in my life I pulled myself together and walked out . I stood outside as a guy hugged her and kissed her they got into the car and left . Mr mike's driver took me to the airport and I left to Zambia I guess the Dumisani and mapalo love story is over .
