Me:This is harder than I thoughtdo you perhaps know a girl named Elihle?

Him:Yes Yes I do but I've been trying to find her with no luck do you know where she is?

I smiled thinking maybe he loves her and this might work in favour of separeting those two. Me:Well looks like we both need something. Fox:I'll be in the car I'm too old to be standing here.

Him:The community was jealous of Elihles family I don't know why cause they were underpriviledgedthey said she was a curse in this community they called her an albino she was picked at in schoolthen when she was in grade 11which is the year before last they burnt her grandmothers rondavel .I haven't seen her since then.
