I covered my ears with the pillow the door opened and I knew it was mom.
” It’s not school today ”
I said after placing the pillow
“It’s Sunday Anele !”
She pulled the cover without warning leaving me half naked
Him: You only have 10 minutes young man
She said opening the curtain sunligh filled the room.
Me: I don’t think Jesus will like what you just did!
Mom: 10 minute!!!
She yelled as she exited the room leaving the door wide open. My mom is something else.
I angrily rolled out of bed took a quick shower then walked downstairs wearing a nevy two piece suite.
” Hurry up”
Me: I’m hungry
Dad: That means you on a fast good my boy I like the progress!
Said my dad as he was walking out
Me: You unfair!
Sandisiwe walked out as well followed by Sanele who was wearing a two piece as well.
I dragged my feet as I was heading to the door.
We arrived at church I took seat at the back row next to my twin.
Sanele: I’m sleepy
Me: Tell me about it
After church we waited at the car while Sandisiwe and my parents were talking with the brethrens.
I hate church it is boring I alway get sleepy.
We arrived home I quickly went to change into a shorts and a vest.
I found my twin at the lounge watching T.V
Me: Mom is calling you
I shrugged my shoulders
Him: How was her facial expression?
Me: She was smiling
He stood up and went upstairs I took the remote and comfortably sat down changing the channel.
” Who are you taking for a fool?”
Me: Chill man life is too short
He came to stand in front of me
Me: And then?
I backed my head
Him: Give me the remote
Me: And if I don’t?
Him: You will see
Me: I’m not giving it
I pushed him aside
Him: I’m warning you Anele!
I said staring at the screen the TV went off.
Me: What the…
Sanele was standing by the switch
Me: Turn on the switch
Him: And if don’t?
I stood up and we fought
Dad walked in we immediately stopped.
” Continue ”
He said we looked at him amused
Him: I won’t repeat myself makwedini! (Boys)
His facial expression said it all. We looked at each other not knowing how to start over.
Dad: Kaloku nina ningo ( You are)John cena act like you don’t see me!
He said making the ” You can’t see me” action.
We stared at each other Dad was looking at us.
Dad: I don’t have all day!!!!!
I felt a punch I punched him back. We fought until we got tired.
Dad: Who said stop?
My ribs were paining I was breathing heavily.
Me: I’m tired
Dad: I though you like practicing wrestling although it is said ” Don’t try this at home ”
Sanele: We sorry Tata
We had no choice but to flight again.
” What the hell is going on here?”
Asked mom as she walked in and I was like ” Yekeee!” ( Good!)
Dad: Watching Wrestling
Mom: ANELE SANELE!
Mom: How can you watch the kids fight like this?
Dad: They not fighting they asked me to watch them as they practice wrestling.
Dad gave us a dead stare We didn’t answer.
Mom: No more wrestling in my house you won’t watch it on T.V and you not gonna speak about it!
She cut us mid sentence
Her: Bring your books I want to check your books.
We dragged our feet upstairs and came back with our school bags.
Mom inspected our book one by one.
Her: I see
She took all our books and walked upstairs with them.
We sapared I went outside and sat under the tree my body was sore.
My phone rang it was my girlfriend.
