.

[NARRATED]


After seeing Zoe bruised like that Rashid rushed home as he wanted to knock some sense into Phindile's head but when he arrived Phindile was on the floor


He then rushed her to Hospital and the Doctors did their job and still didn't find anything wrong with her


Out of fear..Rashid called his father for advices and his father said nothing much as he was expecting a call from him a


Mr Maitase him that there is a traditional healer on the way who is going to take each and every step to address Rashid about the whole matters


Mr Maitase also believe that Rashid will get the real answers by doing that


Rashid drove to his house and when he got in he went straight to his study room and drank a whole bottle of whiskey and passed out


When he woke up it was already 8:00 and he took an bath and went to the hospital


He called Mrs Saldana and told him about the whole situation when Phindile was already discharged


Phindile appeared and Rashid walked towards her


When Rashid approached her and held her hand Phindile yanked it back and past away from Rashid


She went to the car and got in..sat and folded her arms


Rashid followed her and got in the car..he started the car but couldn't drive and stopped for a minute


Phindile: "what are you waiting for?...Drive!"


Rashid: "Baby l got a call from my dad and he said he had a vision"


Phindile: "is that why you are not driving?...You are also seeing visions?"


Rashid:(snap) "Phindile our marriage is in vain!"


Phindile sucked her teeth then said nothing


Rashid: "Believe it or not Phindile but if you were sane this would've made sense to you l mean not so long ago we lost our first child...well my first child l don't know if it was your first"


Phindile scoff....


Rashid: "well now you were admitted for something we don't know"


Phindile: (snap)"stress Rashid stress!...l was admitted due to stress"


Rashid: "what stress Phindile because you are not paying any bills and never heard you saying you are applying for a job"


Phindile: "I am not applying for any job because finding a job isn't any of my problems maybe if my husband can support me and never make me feel lonely maybe l was gonna consider!"


Rashid: "Support?...what kind of support do you want from me?"


Phindile: "Rashid l had a miscarriage with your child and you didn't care you woke up and went straight to work...you didn't even bother to alert my mother about it..."


Rashid: "l wasn't supposed to go to work?...the baby was gonna come back?...don't you have your own mouth to tell her about it?"


Phindile: "Rashid a day off wasn't going to be a big deal especially if you are absent for your family responsibilities but anyway l understand that you wanna spend each and every minute you get with Zoe"


Rashid: "This thing of yours is now irritating... nonetheless we are going to see a traditional healer maybe it will help you win you mind back because you sound like a lunatic now"


After those word Phindile got out of the car and walked...Rashid followed Phindile and begged her to go back to the car but instead Phindile caught a taxi and left


Phindile arrived first then changed to her tracksuits then watched the repeat of her  favourite show 


Meanwhile she was enjoying the show and totally forgot her problems somebody knocked at the door several times


Phindile ignored as she thought that it was Rashid


She stood up and went to open the door since she know that Rashid isn't that patient even if he lost his keys he wouldn't knock so many times


When Phindile opened the door she saw a young man who was wearing traditional clothes more like a traditional healer standing at her door step


Man: "Hey ma'am"


Phindile: "hi"


Man: "Is this the Maitase household?"


Phindile: "why?"


Man: "l was sent to repair this home"


Phindile: "what!...by who?"


Man: "The forefathers"


Phindile: "l guess you came to the wrong house sir"


The man walked passed Phindile and went to the sitting room he then placed his bag on the floor and took a hand crafted mat


Meanwhile the man was doing so Phindile was standing right in front of him making every possible threat as he could but the man kept on taking his resources


Rashid got in the house as he was rushing to hear what the noise was about


He got amazed as he wasn't expecting the traditional healer so soon


Rashid then welcomed the traditional healer and made him feel free


Meanwhile Phindile was giving Rashid the "what the fuck is going on here" look Rashid Ordered her to go wear something decent 


[ZOE]


So my mother literally said nothing and isn't willing to solve the attack l got From Phindile simply because l am the one who is a victim


I went to workt bruised like l was at the boxing ring and the opponent showed me flames


Like l said before my kids are abused at school and of course at home


Imagine as a child being abused and see your mother being treated the same... actually a person who is supposed to be protected becames a victim


I guess that won't really work so l came across a decision of moving out with immediate effect


I told myself that l will move out Month end but l can't bear it anymore


I called a truck and some guys to take some of my belongings...yes l don't have much but there are certain things l bought when my mother's was stuck at the loony bin 


I told the kids to go pack their things and Sifundo followed them l didn't really know how to tell him that he is not coming with us...l Really tried but l couldn't


I then went to open my car boot and placed some of the portable appliances


[CONTINUATION]


Phindile wore a long dress and covers her shoulders with one of her scarfs she then covered her head with a doek and joined the chanting man with together with Rashid


When Rashid saw Phindile dressed like that he got to be a proud man since he never saw her wife with long nails..fake her and makeup wearing like that


The man kept on chanting and chanting till he kept quiet for a while


Rashid: "sir..sir"


The man groaned...


Man: "Your wife need to fix her life...she will keep on losing and losing kids because the fore father's believe that your marriage is not in a great state to build a home"


Phindile stood up and aggressively stormed out of the room just after she told the man that she isn't going to listen to the nonsense the man was saying


As Rashid's father assumed that Rashid will find the answers from the traditional healer


Rashid got to know who was right between Zoe and Phindile and according to what he heard he believes that Zoe's theories are proven right


Man: "Rashid you need to take your power back because your wife's attitude will make your life more miserable and trust me you won't thrive if she continue being like that"


Rashid: "What l can do to fix this?"


Man: "You can't do anything...you rather convince your wife to do something..you are the one who gave her the power"


Rashid: "so there is none l can do"


Man: "like l said your wife has to do something"


Rashid: "like?"


Man: "Being humble enough to put your happiness first and peace upon everything else"


Rashid: "Peace"


Man: "Yes and this Zoe saga work on it before it becomes impossible to solve"


Rashid: "What Zoe saga?"


Man: "You want Zoe to be a corpse before you can serve her right?"


Rashid's head started to spin around as his goosebumps rose


[CONTINUATION]


The boys were almost done packing Zoe's belongings when Mrs Saldana came from the church meeting


Mrs Saldana: "Zoe what's going on here?"


Zoe: "l thought we discussed that l am moving out"


Mrs Saldana: "so soon?"


Zoe: "Yeah the sooner the better...l got attacked and you did nothing about that so that means l ain't safe here so l wanna secure myself for Abdii.. Aziza and Sifundo of course"


Mrs Saldana: "But After what Phindile did to you she landed in Hospital isn't that a punishment enough?"


Zoe: "As if you were going to do a thing about it"


Mrs Saldana: "Zoe am l that bad?"


Zoe: "No you are too good for Phindile's liking anyway you should be happy since l am finally off your shoulders and yes you win l am moving out with Sifundo too...she deserve the love her mother is failing to give her"


Mrs Saldana: "oh l hear you...so you are taking some furniture's with you?"


Zoe: "my furniture..my furniture mom!"


As they were talking one of their neighbours appeared and asked for a help since there was a fight


Some neighbours ran to give a helping hand of which it was going to be a bad thing for Zoe and Mrs Saldana to stand and do nothing and they went to help too


Meanwhile they were away Sifundo who was playing hide and seek together with Aziza and Abdii got in the boot and closed it


When Zoe and Mrs Saldana came back Abdii was in tears and they asked him what's wrong and he never replied but kept on crying till the teary Aziza appeared and told them that they can't find Sifundo and they looked for him everywhere
