MEND MY HOLLY HEART

.


[NARRATED]


It's been a long day for Phindile and Rashid especially since they never got to rest when they came back from their honeymoon


They are now tired from packing their belongings and arranging their new furniture and painting


All their efforts were worth it since the house has a modern fancy class


Phindile just bathed and went to the sitting room where she found Rashid working on his laptop


Phindile: "Baby"


Rashid: "Yes love"


Phindile: "would you like me to cook stew and pap or stew and rice?"


Rashid: "Baby ain't you tired?"


Phindile: "Tired or not my husband has to eat"


Rashid: "Oh baby that's exactly why l married you love but you know what don't worry about cooking for the day...l ordered something for us"


Phindile: "Really you are indeed a husband of the year"


Rashid: "Yeah for now go and relax...you need a nap baby that was a long trip and you never got a chance to rest"


Phindile: "l am not tired"


Rashid: "Fine then but if l was you l was going to take a nap because what will be done to me will need energy"


Phindile chuckles


Phindile: "and what must be that?"


Rashid: "You wanna know?"


Phindile: "Yes"


Rashid: "Fine"


Rashid stood up then took a calculated steps approaching Phindile and kissed her all over the body...Phindile laughed then the next moment was led by moans


[ZOE]


Thinking about Bahru has been something that my mind is doing 


I for sometimes wish to receive a call from anyone to confirm that he is dead or something


No don't get me wrong l don't wish any death upon him but l know if l can find out that he is dead l can operate better than l do now


There is absolutely no lead of him and the most painful part is his other homies relocated from their previous shops and literally departed the province


What hurt me the most is that l just lost the only link to the father of my kids...worse they don't know our new home address


Well wether l am hurt or not what l surely know is that life has to go on so l am preparing myself for a job interview


I saw a post of being a tea girl in some offices and l really do not mind because the salary is fair enough


I will be able to move out of the house with my 'unwanted etopian' kids


Yes we do have a roof under our heads but the conditions we are living under ain't pleasent


Each and every day my kids are reminded that their etopian father abandoned them


My kids have to deal with the bullying they are experiencing at school because of their hair... specifically genes


What l like about my daughter Aziza is that she doesn't let anything or anyone get into hair and by doing that she is also a seed to her younger brother Abdii


Anyway sis is on her way to the interview


I didn't sleep last night getting familiar with possible interview questions


I wore formally but wore flip flops since l will be taking a walk to the interview venue


I do have few cents but l gotta save as much as possible


The interview is set at 8:00 but when l walked out of the house it was 6:30 


I walked there and l arrived at 7:30 and sat at the reception area waiting for the panel


I changed my flip flops to high heels of course


I waited and waited till one of the stuff members appeared and told me that the interview is gonna be proceeded at 13:00


The stuff member also told me that the details were emailed to all suitable candidates yesterday


Unfortunately l didn't see it because l had no data but at least it better to be early than late


I knew l couldn't wait for 13:00 since it's 8:00 so l decided to take a walk to Phindile's new home...she sent me her location and by the look of the place it's only 20 minutes away from here


I walked and looked for the house number and without struggling l found it


Their area was so quite and you would think only whites reside in that area


I don't wanna lie l felt a little bit jealous..l mean l am visiting my younger sister in this kind of area whilst she is the one who is supposed to look upon her elder sister


I pressed the buzzer and walked in...l slowly and carefully step in her paved yard looking around hoping to see bodyguards since it was highly possible


I knock


"Come in"


Wasn't even sure wether l must push or pull l just stood at the door till she opened the door for me


Phindile: "Zoe...what do you want here?"


Okay...That's rude


Me: "wow is that how you welcome guest in your big and beautiful modern house rich someone?"


I ask with a rile tone


Phindile: "I am sorry sis is just that l wasn't expecting you or anyone... please come in and have a sit"


I went in then walked to the couches....My sister got herself a condo everything is just posh


Phindile: "l hope you are not here to talk about Sifundo"


Me: "so you won't even offer me a juice or even a glass of water"


Phindile: "well if you decided to pass by here to discuss Sifundo's saga please this is not the right place"


Me: "oh so there are certain places where we shouldn't discuss your son because of your boyfriend"


Phindile: "Husband Zoe... husband"


She corrects


Me: "Phindile you can't choose a man over your flesh and blood"


Phindile: "like l said if you are here to talk about Sifundo please leave"


Me: "Sifundo will forever be your son wether you like it or not and as for Rashid tomorrow he might wake up and decide not to love you anymore"


Phindile scoff and fold her arms


Phindile: "l find it confusing..How can a person who doesn't have a home or a partner tell me how to build a home..Zoe save your advices for Aziza and that's if she will get married...l knew your visit wasn't for good reasons but l never thought you literally pray for me and Rashid to separate"


Me: "excuse me?"


Phindile: "Yes l heared it from the horses mouth Zoe Saldana..l am Phindile Maitase and trust me if it happens l become Phindile Saldana l would make sure that Rashid won't be yours and you won't be in a relationship with any other man...Zoe l can make your life more miserable than it is right now"


Me: "My mistake was to pass by here l should have waited till 13:00... Phindile l won't tell Rashid anything but incase the truth comes out don't forget that l warned you... according to me l thought if Rashid loves you he would love you with your child... Phindile it's either Rashid loves you wholeheartedly or he doesn't...anyway let me take my leave l can see l am an unwelcomed guest


I said then stood up and walked to the door


I walked away with my mind being everywhere l even forgot that l prepared myself for an interview


I got teary and the tears ruined my make-up...l found myself wiping my face powder with my shirt...l only realized when l was done


I then got in this other botique then bought a shirt with my last money


I really need this job by the way 


I got in the fitting room and wiped my face 


I tried to look as presentable as possible


I then went to pay for the shirt..l lost track of time when l arrived at the venue it was already 13:15


I tried to beg the manager and luckily he was in the good mood to hear me out


He gave me the chance but trust me l knew l fumbled...l knew the moment l walked out of his office that l didn't get the job


[NARRATED]


Zoe's words are playing in Phindile's head as she is watching Tv


A part of Phindile feels guilty but at the same time she knows that she can't lose Rashid


She escaped the day dreaming world when Rashid walked in from work


Phindile: "Babe you are back"


She said then stood up and kissed him then help him carry his bag and took his coat


Rashid: "l am so tired"


He said then sat down... Phindile went to place Rashid's belongings then came back and sat on top of him


Phindile: "You indeed look tired..what was new at work?"


Rashid: "we held the annual general meeting today and it was a disaster seems like our accountants bought their qualifications it was a havoc"


Phindile: "yhoooo you indeed seem like you had it rough let me go find you something comfortable to wear"


Rashid: "No baby don't worry..when l stand up here l am going to take a bath then wear PJs"


Phindile: "okay let me go dish up for you...seems like we won't have it formally today"


She said then went to dish up for him then came back with a tray of food together with a glass of water


Rashid dug in like he never ate for the past six months...He drank water then burp


Rashid: "Sorry"


He continued to eat then saw a scarf


Rashid: "Baby you bought yourself another scarf whilst you have many scarfs and some of them you never wore?"


Phindile: "me a scarf?...No this is Zoe's scarf...can't you see it's not even my style?"


Rashid: "oh so she was here and she didn't even wait for me to come just to greet me...l mean we are literally family now"


Phindile: "No babe she was going to a job interview apparently she was way too early so she decided to pass by here"


Rashid: "Really?"


Phindile: "Yeah she was so desperate that's why she woke up that early"


Rashid: "so did she get the job?"


Phindile: "mom said she didn't"


Rashid: "You no at work they are looking for people..as l told you today there was havoc"


Phindile: "Babe Zoe didn't a job because she has no experience and she isn't a suitable candidate...she only own a higher certificate in accounting science"


Rashid: "Actually she is a suitable candidate because the company has learning programs and skill development programs"


Phindile: "oh..so you think she will be interested"


Rashid: "beggers are not choosers let me call her"


He said then reached his phone and dialed... Phindile was fuming you could see she wanna take the phone and throw it away


She then excused herself since she didn't wanna let emotions get in to her
