Dikeledi knocked at the door and no one opened it she waited and then decided to go and knock at the window. Reetsang immediately opened the door and she turned around.
Dikeledi:(sighed) Oh!i thought you are not around.
Reetsang:(checked his watch) well I was about to leave but you can come in.
Dikeledi:(paused) leave? Are you going somewhere or maybe you have an appointment…I don’t want to disturb you.
Reetsang:No!! you are not disturbing me you can come in…(sighed) you were supposed to be at school aren’t you?
Dikeledi:(nodded) yeah but I left early because I had to go for check up and I decided to pass by your house.
Reetsang:okay…(thoughtfully) just come in and sit down…
Dikeledi walked inside but she seemed uncomfortable she looked around the house and admired it…she didn’t want to ask anything but she ended up saying something.

Reetsang: you will never understand why me kutlwano are not together I cant be in a relationship with someone who keeps on accusing me of cheating…I tried to be loyal to her I did my best but she never appreciated my love for her.
