it was less of a blessing

Am well known soulevery girl wishes to be mine.if I was that kind with player genes I would have slept with all of them because their game of throwing themselves at is quite strong.Am a son of a drug dealeryes my father is a drug dealer.but he has never set a foot in a jail cellI don't know how he does it but it's true.Our House is called "Kwa Steve emadrugzin" The police have been here more than 1000 timesI even grew up thinking they are family the way I saw them more often. This is a huge house very beautiful sadly my parents divorced when I was born so I grew up with my father I'd visit mom on weekends.Now am grown21 years.I get to go and see mommy whenever. My father doesn't think twice if he has to kill a person.if my little sister comes in crying he takes his gungrab her arm and walk to the carshe'll explain on the road what happened... .... Oh I've been bubbling even forgot to introduce myself.I am Yenziwe Nkosi 21years of age.Man am thee most boring person you could ever come acrossI love gadgets I think that is whyam always locked on my phone's screen or laptop there's no in between. My PhoneLaptopCo mputer and My Car are my everything I'd literally die without them.I am a DJhot dark DJ with hazel eyesbitches say. ........ "The house is on fire!!" says my little sis then closes the door sort of running away.I get off the bed quickly tootakes my laptop and my gym bag I run out with my phone in my hands. I get down.They just roll of laughter Dad: Princess you owe metold you even if you said there's earthquake his Laptop and gym bag would've made it to where we'd be escaping to Lizo: You'll never have a makoti here Me: Ah you guys suck Dad: You didn't even put pants Me: Pants are replaceable timer..I join them for breakfast ....... My dad my dad! We are one of the luckiest kids on earth.since he broke up with Lizo's mom I've never seen a woman hereshe was so good to me people couldn't believe I wasn't hers even now she's still mom.And from that day I got the audacity to be mad at my father and tell him how much of a jerk he is.He let a good woman walk out the door because he couldn't keep his zip closed and from there I was 14.I decided I wanted to be nothing like himI am far from being like him.I've only dated oncein high schoolshe got pregnant with another dude's kid so I had to stop this crap of datingit way too draining and not healthy for the loyal me.After we finish breakfast Dad's friends are already hereits Saturday plus so this house is going to be chaotic. I get ready to go I don't know where but I am not staying in this house with drunkards and drug addicts. Funny enough my dad doesn't perform any of thoto. Me: Am off Dad: Take your sister with you Me: No ways old man Lizo: Who are you to oppose dad? Wait for me...I just wish I could slap that smirk on her face away with a punch.She goes up and taking too long to come backshe's 16 by the way.Dad's friends keep on making noiseif I had a bateer way to explain how much I hate noise I would.finally after 15 minutes she comes down. With two bags packedmine and hers Me: And then? Lizo: You'll find me in the car Dad: I want y'all back on Monday Me: Who said anything about visiting? Dad: Me Me: And you didn't bother to ask me if I want to? Dad: I knew you'd say no Me: how cool.bye We fist bump and walk out.get in the car and I drive off.My Lil sis busy playing Ariana Grandetrust me when I say I don't listen to american music but I've even developed love for this Ariana lady because my sister plays her every time. ...... Mom: Wow I still can't believe you're herethis is a nice surprise Me: I know it was a surprise to me too....she hugs me one more timeI love my ladya lot. When I find someone to love I want her to be just like my Queen.I look at her smiling Mom: What ?...she smiles back Me: Am just realizing how honored I am to be your son Mom: Wowcome here...we hug..."You so tall hey" she proceeds Me: Its all dad...she clears her throatreminding me how much she's not pleased by that man being mentioned in her house Me: Am sorry...I actually have no idea what went down between the twowhatever it is it must be bigno one can hate you for 21 yearsI've asked dad so many times and all I get is "things were complicated back then" and I just surrender. Mom: I'll make us something to eat so long Me: No paste ok Mom: Its mutton dummy I don't do sandwiches at this time of the day Me: Thank you I'll be in my room ....... She calls me down a minutes later.Both my parents are got money mom's house is not so huge but stylish enoughat the burbs.She owns a construction company.She hates my dad so much that when I come to visitLizo drops me off cause she doesn't want the car that was bought with "illegal money" I have a car she bought me and I am not allowed to take it to my dad's house because her hard work can not go to an "illegal yard" its really complicated isn't... Yeah I know. ..... We eat then minutes later we are done and I wash the dishes. Me: Can I go outside and observe the place? Mom: Did you see a girl..? Me: Whoa hold your horsesI don't go around scanning for girls Mom: You know you can talk to me about everythingright? Me: I don't know where's this going Mom: I mean if you're.. Uhm not interested in gir- Me: No no no! Am definitely not gay momgeez! How could you even think of that. Jesus bye I plug my earpieaces and walk down the road.its a bloody quiet environment.I've been walking for 10 minutes straight but I ain't come across a single soul.I am skyping with Lizo telling her bout this place she's at her mom's place too. Me: Its creepy bra am even thinking of going back Lizo: *Laughing* since when do you just wander aroundis there a girl? Me: What's wrong with you people? I saw no girl and you know how I feel about girls Lizo: They bitches I know Me: Yes thank you..I am disturbed a group of ladies standing before me Me: uhm looklet's talk later Lizo: Wait I...I disconnect ...... Ok as much as I swore to my life to never ever look at a female the way I looked at Palesa but this woman coming right up...I think she's coming here to the group..oh yeah my guess is right.she's lightnot so short not so tallmid.She's chubby. "Helo?!!" Says the tall light skinned girl standing before me wearing a short.I snap out if my fantasy where am already kissing this girl on the backshe's busy on her phone.Probably texting her boyfriend . Me: Hey hey Her: Am bibo....As in the kid's drink ? Me: uhm..am Yenziwe Bibo: You new here aren't you? Me: Yes Bibo: and you shy? Me: Yes Bibo: And you find this creepy?

I just walk past them my head spinning.trying to get the girl out of my mindI stop and slowly turn to look at them.she's wearing a legging and these military jacketsher hair tied up in a bun I'm the center of her head Ok wait why am I even talking about her she's a stranger and I will never see her again.I decide to turn back home.I find mom on the phone I pour juice and wait for her to finish up so I can tell her about the girl.she takes more than 30 minutes so I just decide to go take a nap for few minutes...I wake up only to find out I took a nap for few hoursits even dark outside.Was I dead or something? I worry as I fail dad. Dad: Prince Me: I saw a girl Dad: You see girls every fuckin day Me: This one is exceptional Dad: You hit on her? Me: Not yet Dad: Are you serious?

Me: Sister Cleo: Please rush to schoolsomeone explained as Kairo is in danger at school...I just speed theremy phone keeps on ringing unknown calls.I see a group of peoplepolice and an ambulance that arrives as I stop and runs to the crowd.. I see her bag on the floor I scan around the people hear I can't find herthere's a body covered in a blanket the shoe is showing and its hers "We can't reach the last number she called and she didn't make it the bullet went straight to her heart.. Yes sir she was pregnant" I eaves drop on a police who's standing not so far from the crowd.I went down on my knees and screamed the loudest I couldeveryone looked at me I wanted whoever did it to come and do the same to me.... ...... Hours later at the hospital not knowing what am I doing there.in my heart I had it that she will wake up.though I have seen herI couldn't recognize her face who's this cruel.a text came in as mom rushed in with Slindi.."The owner of this phone has been shot dead please rush to the scene at..." From Sabelo's phonethat should've been me .mom and Slindi hugged me so tight as I let it all out ........ I arrived at my flat from where Sabelo was shot.the bullet holes on my car were terrifying.I mixed paraffin and petrol.took every Pill that we have on this house.I downed them all and ran a tab full of water.I got in and waited for the poison to kick in..the death of the love of my life and my unborn baby was just too much to take in
