As much as I wanted to not to believe him my mind and heart protested. This is my man of 5 yearshe's been nothing but a good gentleman and loving partner.Though I have not met his family but we have something good going on that everyone is willing to have. I wake 5 am in the morning my transport departs at six.By 5:45 I am combing my hair with a mirror in my hand at the door.Matlale passes by on his bike there I know I am very early.I go back in and takes two spoons of cereal to my mouthbreakfast isn't my thing.I take my bag that is packed with everything I am possibly going to require during the day.I take one last glance at my reflection on the big lounge wall mirror "Satisfying" I thought. I lock the door and waits on the gateI am 10 minutes early and this is so unlike meeven the look on Nathi's face agrees with me.He stands next to me smiling "Its gonna rain and flood today" he says looking far awayI giggle"Its Monday for crying out loud" I say.He looks at me furrowing his bushy eyebrows together "Lucky Monday you meant" I just laugh out loudlyhe's always mocking me.We work closely I get off 4 minutes before himhe's the only person I know and talk to on our transport even on this neighborhood. I am always indoors I don't like peoplewhere there's people there's drama and I am not a fan of all that.I don't even have a female friend around this Place and I am not looking for one.They call my being antisocial right? Yeah I am kind of that... ........ As I sit on my desk my phone is already ringing like they had put an alarm to alert them as soon as I come in.I take it"Dube ConstructionsZinzi Mahlaba goodmorning how can I help you? No sir...by 2...will do... Thanks for calling have a good day" You guessed it rightyes I am a receptionist. I work a big construction companyDube's. I've been working with them for 2 years now but I don't even know the man or woman who owns this place.I dust off the files and tidy the whole placefill on the water and sits down.I log on my PCsearching for received emails that needs special attention and so forth. ...... I take off my heels in exhaustion am still wondering why am I not used to them.2 years is a lot not to be a master at heels.Its 6pm and I have to cook and second thought I decided against I search for some money I might have in the bag I will go and buy myself ikota.Lucky enough I find a R20 note then put on a jacket the wind outside was a bit thick so some warmness could be needed.I go out wearing flip flops feeling so relieved as ever.I see a familiar car pulling up at the drive way I stop and realize we haven't spoke for the whole day and its unusual of us. He walks to me and hug me so tight and kiss my lips"Don't ever do that to me" still in his arms.I smile in flatter that he missed me this much"My phone has a problem of charging babe am sorry" This my man Manqoba Zunguthe love of my lifethe one that has seen my worst and my goodmy up and downmy sick and my healthmy sadness and my happiness my tears and my laughter.We've been together since we had nothinggathered everything together and here we are today having everything we've only had dreamed of.He's a principal at St Louis High School here at the mystery town Congo in the East of Gauteng.Its been 5 years at it we've never broken up we've always been good at fixing our issues. "Zinzi" he says softly I bring my eyes up to look at his tiny eyes with long lasheshe blinks twice."babe?" I answer"You scared meyou know I was at school the whole time but my mind was all over the place wondering where you are" I just hug his waist and he kisses the toobof my head.I move "I was on my way to buy kotawould like some?" I ask"You and Junk food" he shakes his head and grin.I walk away and he follows me. .... After eating I wash the dishes and he's busy bubbling about how he's going to make sure his matrix students pass with flying colors and I chuckle the whole time"so what if they refuse to study on Saturdays" I say"Then suspension will on that learner's door" he responds sounding serious and I know he is. I laugh at the thought of him sending out suspension letters.My phone beeps and I go for it on top of the micro wave charging."That is dangerous you know" he warns"I know I know but its the only near by place to charge it while am here" I support my action"Oh my!" I smile at my phone on the picture my cousin Kedi has sent me he leans over to see."isn't he cute" with an uncontrollably grin on me" He's cutetea?
