Zoe: "it's 12:00 already"


Rashid: "l must be drunk and l forgot to congratulate you about your new car congratulations Zoe"


Zoe: "Thank you"


Silence...


Zoe: "Rashid"


Rashid: "Yes"


Zoe: "Are you okay?"


Rashid: "Yes why?"


Zoe: "you are too slow and deep in thoughts today..what wrong?..is Phindile giving you problems?"


Rashid: "no..no..no my wife and l are okay"


Zoe: "You know lying is a sin right?"


Rashid nods..


Zoe: "cool..l am going to have lunch..wanna join me?"


Rashid: "sure"


Zoe: "let's go"


Zoe took calculated steps then Rashid called her


Zoe: "Huh?"


Rashid: "we need to talk"


Zoe: "Oh so she is stressing you right?"


Rashid: "No Zoe its not her its you"


Zoe: "me?"


Rashid: "Yes...l don't know what you and Phindile have against each other but l know it's something serious"


Zoe: "what are you saying?"


Rashid: "Look Zoe..l overhead a conversation between Phindile and your mother and Phindile was literally enraged..you would tell that she could do anything... anything to pay revenge...she even said something like muting you to prevent you from telling me something"


Zoe dropped her lunch box and breathed highly


Rashid: "Zoe?"


Zoe: "l know...l know..l know"


Rashid: "you know what?"


Zoe: "Look Rashid please let me handle this in my own way okay?"


Rashid: "What is it that l don't know?"


Zoe: "Rashid please.."


Rashid: "Zoe we are talking about my wife here!...a person l am going to spend the night with a person l literally binded myself to spend my whole entire life with!"


Zoe: "Sifundo is Phindile's child!"


Rashid: "what!"


Zoe: "She was in high school "


Rashid: "Zoe..."


Zoe: "Yes you heared me and Rashid l am sorry there is more to it... Phindile still needs to tell you the real her.. herself... Rashid Phindile never graduated as a Doctor... Phindile is not a Doctor she is a nurse not even a matron..l mean she is a nurse...Yes l didn't feel any pain when she told me about me not being a graduate and having a higher certificate plus matric it's because l knew who she is"


Rashid: "But l never fall in love with her profession"


Zoe: "l am sorry but you have to swallow"


She said then left....


[NARRATED]


Phindile stormed out of the shower and looked for a towel to wrap herself fast as someone was banging the door


Phindile went to open the door and her mother got in whilst breathing heavily


She went straight to Phindile's fridge and opend


She took a whole jug of juice drank then burp


Phindile: "mom you nearly broke my door...you walk past me without greeting and now you drink from my jug..who said l do not have cups?"


Mrs Saldana: "Phindile Saldana"


Phindile: "Maitase mom..l am Phindile Maitase"


She corrects


Mrs Saldana: "well Phindile Maitase...The very same door and jug and cups you are bragging about you will kiss them goodbye and come back to my house to beg for a roof...when Rashid get to know everything"


Phindile: "why are you this negative mom?"


Mrs Saldana: "By the look of things l am right about what l am saying baby girl...Zoe is at that company to stay isn't she even got the company car"


Phindile: "what!"


Mrs Saldana: "exactly"


Phindile: "But mom Zoe have less than a week working there"


Mrs Saldana: "you see she works through connections and trust me the next minute she will be having this house all to herself"


Phindile: "No mom no...that can't happen..that can't be"


Mrs Saldana just gave Phindile one more look and looked for something to eat in the fridge


[NARRATED]


It was already bed time when Phindile changed to her pyjamas and left the main bedroom and went to join Rashid who was sleeping in the guest room for days now


Phindile got in bed and looked at the silent Rashid


Phindile: "is this your ideal marriage Rashid?"


Silence...


Phindile: "You won't have a word with me till when?... forevermore?


Silence...


Phindile: "You know when l signed myself to be Mrs Maitase l knew we would come across challenges and of course people will make us fight but l never thought that person would be my sister"


Rashid: "Phindile the reason why l left the main bedroom it's because l wanted to give you time to realize that what you said it's wrong and here you come with the same mindset...why in the world would l want your sister?... Phindile before we met l was already two years single and it meant two years with no intimacy with any straight partner and that means l know exactly what is the objective of love"


Phindile: "l might be wrong about everything but Rashid why all of the sudden Zoe is a priority?..."


Rashid: "isn't she a priority to you?"


Phindile: "she is but babe you are overdoing things imagine her getting a car whilst have less than a week working and you didn't bother to tell me about this are you that close...how do you think l am supposed to feel?"


Rashid: "oh well...it's about the job and the car... Phindile l am not a recruiter and l am not the one who gave Zoe a car...Mrs Washington did l think my mistake was giving Mrs Washington Zoe's number as for the updates she is the one who is supposed to tell you..if you guys were talking"


Phindile: "oh and you thought its not important to update me"


Rashid: "updating you or not that it's not my car it's the companay's car and Mr Washington decided to give it to Zoe and who am l to tell the CEO what to do and what not?... Phindile you have a Benz under your name and you are jelous for a bakkie??...is it a bakkie that makes you to be like this?


Phindile: "Babe what l am saying is l didn't have to find out from my mother that Zoe is given a car"


Rashid: "I think it's about time you come clean... Phindile who are you"


Phindile: "Babe..what do you mean?"


Rashid: "Yes this thing of me working with Zoe worries you more because she know the depth of you?"


Phindile: "Rashid what are you on about?"


Rashid: "l am on about the fact that you hid a lot from me... Sifundo"


Phindile: "Sifundo?"


Rashid: "isn't Sifundo your child"


Phindile: " No it's Zoe's"


Rashid: (snap) "and you making a fool out of me


Phindile jumped out of  fright then knelt down and begged Rashid to hear her out


Rashid stoop up...when he was about to walk way Phindile begun to bleed and feeling some pains


She begun crying whilst holding her stomach and crying... Rashid went to get some towels as he was dailing for help
