I was beyond the word heart broken firstly I lost my sonmy heir and now my girlfriend is my long lost sister I should have seen this coming. The whole family was thrilled about these news especially my grandparents. Mah:Bayanda you will be fine.

Me:Mom those words aren't really comforting. Dad:Bayanda don't disrespect your mom like that.

Me:I'm sorry but dad you should have been man enough and not cheat on mom. Mom:Don't talk to your father like that. Me:Care to explain how Elihle came about? Mkhulu:Yolisa.


Mkhulu:Where is the girl?


Mkhulu whistled.

Him:She's at her weakest point ngoku she mustn't be alone.

Malume Sphe and I stood up and went to my room We found it locked we knocked but we got no response.

Me:She can't be this quiet this girl cries loudly. Sphe:Kick the door then.

The whole family was there I broke the door Elihle was laying on the bed with foam coming out of her mouth.

Me:Call the ambulanc.

Mom:Bandile take the kids away Vuyo get me the car keys.

I took the note placed in my pocket and followed mom she took out the Gusheshe and drove to the hospital .This is the 3rd occasion it was draining .We got to the hospital and the doctors to her in.

Mom:Come here baby.

She hugged me.

Me:Mom I can't break things off with her neither can I lose her I can't mama.

Her:She will be fine have faith.

Me:Did she have to be my sister out of all the things?

Her:I can't answer that my love.

We sat down I buried my heard in my handsafter forever the doctor came to us we stood up.

Mom:How is my girl?.

Doc:She is in a critical condition you must pray for a miraclethe pills she took are very strong they did a lot of damage in her intestines and she might suffer from heart problems.

Me:Will she wake up?

Doc:She's in a coma.

I sat down and sighed God this is difficult. A week passed followed by weeks I was dying slowly though I hid it but it was killing me slowly especially after reading the note she left it broke me. I went as far as wanting to stop school I didn't stop praying she woke up 6 weeks later .My father called me he said we were needed at the hospitalI wasn't ready to accept her being my sister I couldn't. Bandile and I drove to Pietermaritzburg we went straight to the hospital my parents and grand parents were  there also dad and mom
