****HEATH***


*** well I can safely say my life is a complete mess now after I left naledi’s ward in the hospital that time she was admitted I got so stressed that I felt like I was losing my mind. I really messed thing up with her and I have no clue on how to go about fixing things between us cause im sure in her eyes I chose lerato over her and in actual truth I didn’t cause all I did was to try and save my unborn baby by rushing the mother to the hospital….. I don’t know what was really happening to me that day cause I totally blocked anything else and concentrated om my unborn baby and through all that I forgot about obim I mean the same baby I wanted to save didn’t even make it and now obim broke things off with me…. well the thing is I’ll never give up on her cause my heart beats for her and her alone and  as for lerato the last time I saw her it was when I got a call from her crying saying she needs me and like a fool I rushed to her place and yes she was in bad state we talked almost the whole night about our dead unborn baby and then one thing let to another and well we fucked luckily we used protection even though she was against it. The thing is I feel like shit about us fucking cause I feel like I cheated on naledi even though she was the one that ended things between us anyway concerning what happened to naledi with her uncle and grandmother let’s say that man will wish that aids he has killed him the moment he found out he had it cause I’ll make sure he pays handsomely for what he did or almost did to obim that’s all im gonna say for now concerning that issue….. anyway after some time naledi walked towards me pulling  a big travelling bag and she left  it in front of me and she went  back and soon after she came back out again with another travelling bag and also leaves it in front of me and she goes back again and comes out with a sleeping baby in the arms ***

Naledi: im done packing

***she said that to me with a low voice not even looking at me and then her  grandmother  stood by the passage with her arms folded on her chest***

Koko: so you are choosing a man that might leave you tomorrow for another woman over your family

***naledi didn’t say anything***

Me: lets go ledi 

Koko: if you walk out that door naledi never I mean never ever come back to this house again even when im dead you hear me

***the fuck***

Naledi: koko please 

Koko: please what huh….i raised you since you were a day old  naledi ive always been good to you and I took care of you like you were my own child a child I gave birth to and now because of some family problems you pack up and leave as if I mean nothing to you

Naledi: koko you chose to keep a blind eye to what thabo did to me you called me a liar even though you saw the state I was in

Koko: thabo is my son naledi and I’ll choose him over anything just like you’ll do with Lesedi but that doesn’t mean I don’t care about you

****ive heard enough of this nx ***

Me: naledi lets go its getting late

Koko: you think he loves you naledi well my girl then you have a lot to learn in this world family is everything naledi even if you fight and exchange harsh words between each other but your family will always be there for you in time of need and believe me when I say this boy once hes done with you he’ll throw you away like yesterday’s rubbish and you’ll remember me my dear when life starts showing you flames

***naledi just cried holding her baby and I could tell she was now reconsidering the whole thing***

Me: ledi the same way shes putting her son first you should also put your child first…. What if that sick son of hers rapes Lesedi heh

Koko: SHUT UP YOU BASTARD MY SON WILL NEVER DO THAT

ME: HE TRIED TO RAPE YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER AND ALL YOU COULD DO WAS DEFEND HIM AND WELL  FUCK NALEDI RIGHT WELL LET ME TELL YOU OLD WOMAN SINCE YOU FAILED TO PROTECT AND HAVE HER BACK I’LL TAKE THINGS FROM HERE AND DO YOUR JOB FOR YOU

Koko: GET OUT OF MY HOUSE

Me: with pleasure…..naledi lets go

***I said that taking her bags***

Koko: if you walk out of that door I’ll curse the day I saw you for the first time and believe me when I say nothing will go well in your life you’ll never find happiness and tha…

***I interrupted her***

Me: I DEFUSE THOSE CURSES IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND I SAY ANY CURSES AND EVIL DIRECTED TO  NALEDI AND LESEDI GO BACK TO SENDER AND BURN HIM/HER IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS 

***they looked at me with their eyes popped out… well I grew up in a church going family  and we do pray back at home all the time even though I hardly go to church here in south Africa but I do pray every now and then so im not gonna let this old witch to curse obim just like that***

Me: you listen and listen good those curses you are  busy  putting  on naledi know that they’ll fall back on you  and your useless son…..naledi lets go now

Koko: NALEDI!

Me: NALEDI I SAID LETS GO

*** she turned and walked out crying… we went to the car and I put the bags in the boot and naledi sat with her daughter at the back then I got in the car and drove away with naledi still crying...... I drove straight to my apartment in wonderboom I got in the complex and I parked my car ***

Me: stay here I’ll be back ok

***she nodded slowly not even looking at me and I sighed and got out of the car and I went to the caretaker’s apartment and he gave me my spare keys and I went back to the car ***

Me: let’s go in

***I said that opening her door and she got out with her baby and I went to take out her bags in the boot and we went inside…..we got in and I showed her the main bedroom and  she went to put the baby down and she came back to the living room probably to take her bags but I held her hand and she shook her head no trying to fight back her tears but I just pulled her in for a tight hug ***

Me: its ok obim 

***a soft sob escaped her mouth and I scooped her up and went to the guest bedroom and I put her on the bed and I also got in and I pulled her to my chest and I held her tight as she cried***

***heath tightened his arms around her and he kissed the top of her head***

Heath: shhh its ok obim your safe now you and Lesedi 

***naledi sniffed***

Heath: you have a beautiful baby girl

Naledi: she’s the reason I live…shes my everything and the thought of someone hurting her…

***heath interrupted her***

Heath: no one will hurt her not while  im still breathing

***then they kept quiet***

Heath: where is her father

***naledi swallowed hard***

Naledi: when…when  I told him im pregnant he blatantly told me to abort

Heath: WHAT?

Naledi: he said he will never father an albino child but what he didn’t know is she wasn’t born a curse like me

Heath: hey hey listen here you’re not a curse and you’ll never be one even if you want to and don’t ever in your life call yourself that ever again do I make myself clear

***he said that with a firm voice full of authority and naledi just kept quiet ***

Heath: I said did I make myself clear naledi

Naledi: ye…yes

Heath: good and about that dickhead called your baby daddy hes a fool and don’t worry he’s gonna regret ever saying those words to you ok

***naledi nodded and heath kissed the top of her head ***

Naledi: im sorry for your loss

***heath sighed deeply***

Heath: thank you…and im sorry about what happened obim I didn’t chose her over you I just went into panic mode and all I could think of was my unborn baby…..she miscarried before so I was scared she might miscarry again

***then he sighed***

Heath: what im trying to say is  I love you naledi a lot and more than I love myself and im sorry about what lerato did to you…im sorry obim

***naledi got off his grip and she got off the bed***

Heath: obim please

***he said that looking angry and naledi regretted saying that to him***

Heath: I know I messed things up and I take full responsibility for all the mess I caused but you saying I wanted only sex from you is not what I’ll take lightly 

***naledi kept quiet looking down and heath went to her and he sighed and  pushed her chin up making her to look at him***

Heath: I love you naledi and I’ll make you mine again even if is the last thing I do and you me Omphile and Lesedi we will be a family and  the sooner you accept that the better

It was big and open and it had a nice view…..it was a two bedrooms and two bathrooms open space kitchen a dinning space and a lounge  she could tell it costs a lot of money***

Naledi: wow now im squatting at my ex’s apartment whom I dated for less than three hours… just wow naledi you are just a disappointment mxm
