So l kept my virginity for full 23 years and it was broken in minutes..wow l can't believe that l actually had sex with the whole prince..it's so painful down there or maybe it's because it's my first time but let me tell you that he was gentle as possible as he canl wonder how does he take me for..l mean l am not even his type..l am not that girl with nails..weaves..eyelashes and so worse he spent most of his days in Joburg so he must sure have a girl who is his type..l pray that my pussy was at its best smell because l only too a bath in the morning without a soap so l am not sure about it..since l was sweating the whole day..now l can't even look at him..so funny how he catch me stealing his looks..we finally arrived at home l couldn't do any sleep over my mom can murder me..khayone packs the car outside the gate
Khayone:Not even a kiss?
Me: khayone l am in trouble okay!..the gate is already locked
Khayone:good then let's go back to my room
Me:Are you mad!
What!?..did l even say that to the prince..oh no l didn't but you wouldn't blame me
Khayone:yes l am mad in love
I suck my teeth and fold my arms
Khayone:are you Coming with me?
Me:hell no l am jumping the wall plus it's not that tall..bye khayone
He was about to say a thing when l closed the door and left..then l climbed on top of the rock to reach the upper level of the wall so l can jump of..as painful as it was down there l forced to jump of till l managed then l sneaked to my room
Fuck..l turned slowly l saw her folding her arms with the "where the hell were you?" Look
Me: good night mom
Mrs Langa:oh so the need is good according to you?
I just mumbled to prevent her from being pissed off even more
Mrs Langa:you can't even hear yourself there..you know it's late enough to be a night but you didn't even bother to come back home as early as you can
Nyeleti:l was selling mom
Mrs Langa: selling?
Nyeleti:Yes mom and l made profit
I searched my pockets and there was no money prolly l left it in khayone's car..then l rose my face..l earned a slap without expecting
Mrs Langa:Since when do you lie to me?..are you even aware that we are not safe anymore
Me:l am sorry mom
I said touching my slapped cheek
Mrs Langa:The princess is missing or maybe even eaten by lions..so if the lion's can be able to eat the royal blood who do you think you are?
Me:Buhle is dead?
Mrs Langa:Go to your room!
I left immediately before l get another slap
Being a servant it's hard and as hard as it is..the queen is making my life difficult now..she doesn't want to open so l can give her food..l knocked numerous times and my hands are now painful...Mr Zwane appear
I turned and bowed
Mr Zwane:Go and serve others tea..l will handle the queen.
I left him knockingyou might even think the queen is not even inside but l have hear her breath when she sniffs..l think she is crying
I can't move my body it's really painful down there..l am still in bed and my phone is ringing..it kept on ringing..l wanted to pick it but sis could've wake up
That was my mom getting in..l wonder why l didn't lock the door
Mr Langa: Nyeleti go fetch water...its now 9:00
Mrs Langa:Don't okay me..move girl
I had no choice but to force a move..l can't make my mother get suspicious besides at the end of the day l have to move
Mrs Langa: Nyeleti you are bleeding
Oh my word..is breaking a virginity like this?..l didn't even feel blood comming out.was your first time this bad?..l doubt
Mrs Langa:Are you okay?
Nyeleti:Yeah it's periods..that's why l woke up this late l didn't have enough sleep because of the pains l went through the whole night
Mrs Langa:okay let me rest a bit
Nyeleti:No mom l will go fetch water
Mrs Langa:are you sure?
She Leftafter she left l immediately jumped to my phone and texted khayone
"Khayone my whole body is painful and l am bleeding"
Zwane's knocked till he managed to get in..Mrs Zwane is in bed shedding tears not saying a word
Mr Zwane:Since last night you haven't said a word
Mrs Zwane:ufuna ngithin (what do you want me to say?)
Mr Zwane: anything that is going to make you feel better
Mrs Zwane:Well Zwane you fetched my baby at Joburg and failed to protect her..now you can't even find her body..you know l hate suspecting that my daughter is dead..l just want to find the whole truth of it so l can make peace with myself
"Mama ukuhuluma ngani?"("mom what are you talking about")
Mrs Zwane immediately jumped out of her bed and went to Buhle hugs and kisses her numerous times thanking the Lord
I found a disturbing message from Nyeleti stating that she is bleeding..yeah l know she is a virgin but after she took a bath the bleeding should stop but according to her case it's not..l am deep in thoughts l just hope she is good in health because it was unfair of me not to tell her that l was once infected by one of my ex's in Jozi..where l got admitted at the hospital because l have STI's and my dick had sores and l used to pee something yellowish and smelly but it got treated so l doubt that's the reason..l am more stressed because she blue ticked me.
That was my dad l turned
Mr Nzimande:How does it feel like being at home
Me:It's not bad as l thought..anyway l see you are recovering
Mr Nzimande:at least you answered me as a man..anyway it's not like l can't even take a walk..is just that my cancer is not fading away
Me:l hear you father
Mr Nzimande:Yeah so far l can tell that l am not throwing my chieftaincy in waste
Me:it's all muzi's work
Mr Nzimande:yeah good job..although l tend to underestimate that boy sometimes
Me:Father Muzi is cool why would you underestimate him
Mr Nzimande:Muzi is weak
Me:l disagree fatherMuzi is not weak he can chase the bulls to the kraal
Mr Nzimande:His ancestors are weak.. remember we found him at a very young age..or should l say month?
Me:imagine 3 months dad
Mr Nzimande:we are estimating that it's 3 months..you see his ancestors could've made some means to find him
Mr Nzimande:It's painful to be lost and it's worse he doesn't even know his real name that's why l named him Mzwakhe because this is his home
Me:yeah he is a blessing in disguise
My father coughs....
Me:Dad are you okay?
Mr Nzimande:take me to my bedroom
I did as he said
