part 8 royalty or poverty?

It was the day before Christmas we were on our way to the village. " Don't you want something to eat?" I shook my head I was not hungry we stopped at a garage for fuel. I stepped out stretched a little then went to the ladies. We hit the road later on I fell asleep . Later on... We arrived at the village we drove straight to the palace. Everyone was happy to see us Thando was there already Thando: I missed you I smiled Me: Me too! We shared a brief hug Queen: How are you my daughter? I bowed Me: I'm fine my queen and you my queen? Her: I'm fine She brushed my tummy Her: Nothing yet? " Mama we brought you some things " Said Luyolo after clearing his throat Thando took me to the lounge and we catch up. We later took a walk around the village I really missed the place. My phone rang as we were walking and it was Luyolo It was a Nokia 3310 Me: Hello Him: You like attention Where are you? Me: I'm with Thando Him: I didn't ask who you with Where are you? Me: Walking around Him: I want you here in 5 minutes I'm tired of the people asking your whereabouts! Then he hung up " What is it?" I stopped Me: Your brother... He says he want me back in 5 minutes Her: Missing you already? Wow that is romantic I rolled my eyes as we walked back to the palace. The palace was big surrounded by different plants. Not everyone could enter without permission there were two house helpers I liked them because they were so kind. Christmas day.... I was woken by Luyolo's phone conversation with Nelly Him: Come on...my family....What you wearing?.....Mmmmm....I wish I was there....This is gonna be my worst Christmas ever...No one can take your place.... I stood up and left him talking on the phone I brushed my teeth and washed my teeth. I asked to go see my parents they didn't have a problem. I took a quick bath and wore my traditional attire. Luyolo was forced to drive me home we stepped out together. My mother was so excited to see me Her: My baby We shared a brief hug Her: You look beautiful I faked a smile Luyolo greeted my parents Dad: Tshini Madoda ! Dad: Nosakhele bring a chair for the Prince! I could see Luyolo was irritated but kept his cool by pretending. " He hates me Mama" I said to my mother as we were inside the house Her: I'm sorry my child I wish there was something I could do Me: Why??? MAMA WHY? She looked down Me: He doesn't love me nothing I do is good enough Her: Try harder Me: Please Mama

I want to come back home She cupped my face with tears on her eyes I could see pain through her eyes. Her: I'm sorry baby you can't Tears escaped my eyes Me: Please Her: I'm sorry Me: I'm not happy Tears rolled down from her cheeks to her neck. She closed her eyes Me: Mama... Her: I failed you my child Me: Mama... Her: I hope you forgive me there is nothing I can do... That alone kills my soul! I felt tears burning on my cheeks she was really hurting Her: Kuzolunga ngenye imini... ( Someday it shall be well) Nyamezela mntanam nyamezela She pulled me to her chest I rested my head and felt how fast her heart was beating. Her: I'm sorry my child She moved her hand back and forth on my back. Her: I love you mntanam never forget that! A while later... We had to go back to the palace we were having a Christmas lunch with the family. " Can you please do me a favour?" Him: What favour?
