MEND MY HOLLY HEART

.


[NARRATED]


Never has Phindile been confused like this


Yesterday she was treated before she was sent to theatre due to a loss of her eight weeks pregnancy


What confuses her is that a few weeks days ago she got the same pains she got before Rashid take her to the hospital...the only difference is that that day she didn't bleed and she did a pregnancy test on her own and came negative and went to two doctors who captured no life


Rashid told Mrs Saldana the matter in the morning after he was told that Phindile is ready to go home


Rashid and Phindile then went home


Immediately after they got in the teary and confused Phindile went to lay on the couch and kept on sniffing 


Since the moment was awkward for Rashid he went to take a bath then prepared himself for work


Rashid: "Can l do something for you before l leave?"


Phindile: "No"


Rashid: "Okay l am going to work"


Phindile: "cool"


Rashid: "should l call your mother or you will be okay?"


Phindile: "I will be okay just leave"


Rashid took his laptop bag and necessities then walked a calculated steps to the door


As much as she couldn't the guilt which was dealing with his gut he took a turn then walked towards Phindile


Rashid: "Phindile we can't live like this..we can't ignore each other"


Phindile scoff...


Rashid: "Since the doctor told us about losing our baby you haven't said anything"


Phindile: "What Should l say"


Rashid: "Anything that you are thinking"


Phindile: "Instead of asking me what l am thinking you should be asking me how am l feeling Rash"


Rashid: "Okay...How are you feeling?"


Phindile: "How would you feel if your husband decide to believe your sisters madness over you?...Rash l told you l told you that Zoe doesn't want anything good prolly she wants you"


Rashid: "Phindile l know l wasn't supposed to believe Zoe without proof but what you are saying it's madness"


Phindile: "l am now mad?"


Rashid: "Phindile.."


Phindile: "well Rashid l'd rather be mad but if you were Phindile you were going to understand what l am talking about..l mean job opportunities..new car and now you believe her over me?"


Rashid: "Well l have each and every reason to believe her over you because wow l don't know you Phindile but l know you have something against her and the fact that Sifundo is your child could be one...l mean if you are that innocent why would you and your mother would want to mute her?"


Phindile trembles...


Phindile: "Rashid?...where does that come from?"


Rashid: "Beside being my wife or the so called doctor l think you should consider acting as a career..can't you be honest with yourself for once..right now you are sitting in that couch finding people to blame for the loss of our child acting up on me...when you are the main reason why we lost it"


Phindile: "You are literally saying that l chose to lose our baby Rashid?"


Rashid: "Don't you put words in my mouth and as much as l wanna trust you l want a valid proof...when l am coming back from work we are going to your house to fetch your alleged child we are going to do some DNA's "


Phindile: "That's insane Rash!"


Rashid: "According to insane people every sane thing sounds insane so who am l to judge?"


Phindile: "l am now insane?"


Rashid: "l am off to work"


Rashid said then left


[NARRATED]


Zoe woke and prepared herself for work


She took a bath then she woke the children up so they can take a bath since they are all going to school and Sifundo is going to creche


Zoe wore her formal clothes and took a look at herself at the mirror


She got deep in thoughts whilst staring at herself at the mirror


A part of her feels like her mother doesn't favor Phindile over her she actually hate her


Ever since she heared that Her mother and Phindile are planning to mute her she has never been comfortable around the house


Yesterday when she knocked off at work she came back as early as she could before her mother can cook so that she can cook and dish up


Zoe gained more insecurities as she thinks that her mother might as well poison Abdii and Aziza


Zoe even paid a centre so that when Abdii and Aziza even Sifundo come back from school they can wait for her at the centre to avoid eating food cooked by Mrs Saldana


Thirty minutes passed whilst Zoe was deep in thoughts...she departed the world of thoughts when she heard her mother calling her


Zoe moved away from the mirror and departed the bedroom


When she arrived at the living room the kids were already settled at the table eating porridge


Zoe didn't know how to react...as much as she doesn't trust her mother she knew that she couldn't just come up with accusation with no facts


Mrs Saldana: "oh Zoe your porridge is getting cold"


Zoe greeted her mom then sat down and gave a stare a bowl of porridge in front of her


A lot went on her mind as she didn't know how she was going to handle the situation...yes the kids were eating and seem to be enjoying the porridge but that doesn't mean her porridge isn't bewitched or poisoned


Zoe: "Fundo"


Sifundo: "ma'am Zoe"


Yes that's how Sifundo address Zoe even Phindile He says ma'am Phindile when he address her


Zoe: "Are you gonna be full?"


Sifundo: "Yes"


Zoe: "No...no l doubt you will be full take mine l will take yours"


Zoe said and exchanged the dishes


Zoe exchanged the plates as she believes that if her mother poured anything in her plate she will come clean since she will surely wouldn't want anything to happen to Sifundo since it is her favourite child amongst them all


Zoe: "There you go"


Mrs Saldana scoffs...


Zoe: "Is there anything you wanna say mom?"


Mrs Saldana: "Exchanging of food is something new in this house but what l can say... people tend to lose appetite when they work"


Zoe: "l am supposed to be offended but l am not even a bit because l know l Should change my life furthermore"


Mrs Saldana: "Change your life furthermore?"


Zoe: "yeah l am looking for a place to stay even if it takes renting someone's backroom"


Mrs Saldana: "oh really"


Zoe: "yes mom"


Mrs Saldana: "You are moving faster than your shadow my baby...you haven't even got your first salary but you are already moving out?"


Zoe: "it's about time mom"


Mrs Saldana: "As we speak you don't even have a bed or even a pot..a spoon Zoe"


Zoe: "You are the one who always tell me that l am old and l should've moved way back before Phindile and now that's exactly what l am doing and as for furniture or utensils l will make a way and mom please understand that you are forever welcome at my crib"


Mrs Saldana: "Mhhhm"


Zoe: "But l am afraid Sifundo won't be coming with us?"


Mrs Saldana: "We all know that is impossible"


Before Zoe could respond there was a sudden noise from outside before they could realise that it was Phindile she was on top Zoe giving her slaps and swearing at her


The moment Mrs Saldana was able to stop the fight Zoe was already bruised


After the fight Phindile told Zoe to stay away from her family affairs and promised to her to make her life miserable


[NARRATED]


Zoe went to renew her make up and found other comfortable clothes to wear then drove to work


Zoe was counting boxes when Rashid appeared and greeted her


Zoe kept in ignoring Rashid as she didn't want him to see his bruises but Rashid finally noticed


When Rashid asked Zoe about the bruises Zoe tried to lie but the truth was written all over her face


Rashid knew that Phindile isn't in a great state of mind and not sane but never thought she can bruise anyone like she bruised Zoe


Rashid hugged Zoe and comforted her


Zoe pulled the hug when she remembered that the beef between them it is actually about her marriage


[NARRATED]


Phindile got in her house and immediately went to the sink she washed of her face and cried whilst balanced with it


She then screamed for a minute and the next she was on the floor with her eyes closed...
