FELICIA ADAMS


TWO DAYS LATER...


"So are you going to tell him"-Ashley


I close the laptop and look at her as she stands next to the window.


"I don't know I mean I still have about a week before having to tell him"-me

"That's only going to make things worse"-Ashley


Ashely has been my best friend since we started varsity but she's annoying I'll give you that.


"Then what else do you suggest I do?"-me

"Meet up with him and break the news to him gently"-Ashley

"What about my family?"-me


I put the laptop next to me and walk to the door as she follows me to the living room.


"You're old enough to make your own decisions Felicia"-Ashley


She walks to the kitchen as I pick my phone up and a message came in a few minutes ago.


~MEET ME AT 7pm TONIGHT MY PLACE~

-Sizwe


I reply to him and then turn to Ashely.


"I think I know what to do"-me

"What?"-Ashley


She now has a packet of chips in her hands and sits down on the couch.


"I could tell my family and his over dinner with him there "-me

"No now I'm convinced you can't think"-Ashley


She shakes her head and I sigh sitting opposite her.


"What else do you suggest I do?"-me

"Tell him before telling anybody else?"-Ashley

"I wanted to tell my parents first"-me


The front door opens and my mother walks in accompanied by my big brother.


"You two are home? I thought you'd be partying it up by now"-Vumile


He throws a knowing look at Ashley and she rolls her eyes.


"We're a lot of things but not party animals"-Ashley


He's about to reply and I look at my mother who's smiling at me.


"Mom are you and dad busy tonight?"-me

"No I was planning on taking him out on dinner tonight. Why do you ask?"-mom


She places her shopping bags on the couch and I twiddle my fingers drawing a breath.


"I need to tell you something but we can postpone it if you're busy"-me

"What is it?"-mom


Her smile flips over into a frown so I shake my head and look at her with a fake smile.


"It's good news I just want to tell it to you in a special way"-me

"Well I guess your father and I could postpone"-mom


I look at Vumile who's now seating on the armrest of the couch where Ashley is seated.


"I would love it if you also came"-me

"I was going to come anyway I wouldn't miss your cooking for the world Ashley will you be there?"-Vumile


He looks at her and she blushed as her cheeks turn crimson red.


"I wouldn't miss it for the world"-Ashley

"Of course you wouldn't "-me


My mother picks up one of her shopping bags and hands it to me and I peak inside.


"I bought you your hair"-mom

"You kept your promise"-me


I look at her with a smile and she nods with a chuckle.


"You already have a lot of those things I don't understand why you wanted more "-mom

"A girl could never have to much hair"-Ashley


She chuckles and picks her bag up and looks at me.


"Babe

I don't understand why you wanted more "-mom

"A girl could never have to much hair"-Ashley


She chuckles and picks her bag up and looks at me.


"Babe I'll be here by 8pm make sure the food is low in fat carbs and..."-Ashley

"I'll make sure it's prefect"-Vumile


She turns to him as he winks and she nods walking out.


"Bye mom"-Ashley

"Bye sweety"-mom


She smiles turning her head to Vumile and he looks at me.


"Let's go"-Vumile


He points at the kitchen and I lead him as he walks closely behind me.


"What are you announcing don't tell me you're pregnant"-Vumile


He looks at me with a concerned look and I shake my head with a giggle.


"I'm not that dumb I got an offer from the company that gave me my bursary. I'm going to New York City"-me


I smile as he pulls me into his arms and kisses my cheek.


"I'm so proud of you I told you that you are destined for nothing but greatness"-Vumile


He smiles letting me pull out of the hug and a look at him inhaling sharply.


"I don't know how to tell mom or dad let alone Sizwe"-me


I sigh and the smile on his face becomes smaller.


"You're old enough to make your own decisions and if he loves you Jen he'll let you go"-Vumile

"It's not like I need his permission or anything. I just want us to part ways peacefully"-me


I roll my eyes as he pours her himself a glass of water and gulps it down.


"You go Mrs Independent"-Vumile


He holds his hand up for a high five that he gets accompanied by a fist bump.


"So will you take care of the food while I go tell him?"-me

"Of course anything for Ashley.


"Nothing for me?"-me

"Go before I change my mind"-Vumile


I walk to my bedroom and pick an outfit.


I go simple and quickly go take a bath and then come back with my parents purse in hand.


"Please borrow me your car keys"-me


I look at him and he smiles at me with a chuckle.


"Take your father's car"-Vumile

"Are you trying to get me killed?"-me

"They're on the couch"-Vumile


He's busy preparing food and I chuckle. One would be suprised by how domesticated he is.


"Bye boy"-me


I tell walking out to his car and drive out to Sizwe's work place.


The interior and exterior of this building is perfect.


I'd gladly work here if I didn't already have an offer from the US.


"What are you doing here?"-Sizwe


He seems shocked to see me. His tie is on the table and his eyes bloodshot and no blazer is on him.


"To see you babe"-me


I smile leaning forward to kiss his lips but he moves his face and my lips land on his cheeks.


"What's wrong ?"-me


I frown sitting on the chair opposite him and he sighs rubbing his head with his hands.


"Nothing too bad I just lost a huge contract and..."-Sizwe


He looks at me with a look of distress in his face and I feel bad from what I'm about to tell him.


"Well I need to tell you something"-me

"Is it bad news?"-Sizwe

"Depends on how you take it"-me


I look at him with a smile and he sigh and sits back on his big chair.


"Go ahead"-Sizwe

"I got an offer from the US it's the same company that paid for my varsity expenses..."-me


He fixed his eyes on me and I clear my throat with a sigh.


"They want me to go and work for them"-me

"Are you going to take it?"-Sizwe


I try find the right words to say this without him feeling like I'm leaving.


"Well its a good offer and I..."-me


He gets up and grabs his blazer and his car keys before looking at me.


"Where are you going?"-me


I get up too and he draws in a huge breath and looks at me.


"I need time and space away from you"-Sizwe


He walks out and I call after him but he does reply  so I just throw myself on the chair and groan.


I didn't want it to turn out like this. Honestly.
