Later that day I bathed and wore my purple high waist skinny jeans sneakers
white vest tucked in my jeans and a cap. My purple lipstick complimented my attire. MJ came to pick me up at 13:00. We went to a restaurant in town. It was so fancy. We were given a table then the menus
MJ- Order anything you want
Tlhogi- Baby have you seen the prices?
MJ- I don't mind spending my money on you
Tlhogi- You don't have to spend money you don't have to impress me. You should have taken me to a local place. You know braai meat and get drinks
MJ- Are you complaining?
MJ- Then order
MJ- I'm only trying to be your ideal boyfriend
Tlhogi- Don't try to be someone you're not
MJ- I won't overdo it
MJ- I know I should have said this long ago I'm sorry. You look gorgeous
Tlhogi- Thank you
MJ- How's school?
Tlhogi- I'm getting there
MJ- You'll be fine. I remember my first year. It was scary
Tlhogi- At least you're finishing soon
MJ- Yeah and I'll get a nice paying job. I'll buy us a house and a car
Tlhogi- I love that
MJ- Then we'll plan for our future
Tlhogi- Aren't you rushing things a little bit?
MJ- What do you mean?
Tlhogi- Just let things fall into place
Tlhogi- I'm assuming your gig went well last night. You got paid
MJ- Yeah it went well
Tlhogi- I'm happy for you
MJ- My mom has been asking about you lately. She says you no longer wanna visit her nowadays
Tlhogi- I've been busy
MJ- Maybe we should go today
MJ- Yeah come on
Tlhogi- I guess it won't kill me
MJ- Yeah. So what would you like to eat?
Tlhogi- Umm I'll have ribs with spaghetti and orange juice
MJ- You sure?
He called the waiter and we ordered. The food was mouthwatering. He then took me to the mall and bought me a dress. It wasn't expensive but it was stunning. We took a taxi to his place
We got there and his mom was in the kitchen baking
MJ- Hello Ma
Ma- Hey my boy
MJ- I brought your daughter in-law
Tlhogi- Dumela Ma
Ma- How are you baby?
Tlhogi- I'm doing okay. How about you?
Ma- Everyday is a blessing
MJ- Baby make yourself at home
Ma- How's your mother?
Tlhogi- She's well
Ma- We haven't spoken in ages
Tlhogi- She's usually busy
Ma- I understand
Tlhogi- What are you baking?
Ma- If you have time you could wait for them. I could give you some to enjoy at home with your mom
Tlhogi- I'd love that Ma
Ma- Come here
He came out of the bedroom
Ma- I need you to go get me more milk from the shop
MJ- But Ma....
Ma- Don't give me attitude. Take money from my bag. It's in on my bed
Tlhogi- MJ don't be like that
Ma- This boy
He took the money and left
Tlhogi- Don't worryI'll set him straight
Ma- You should. Even last night when I wanted to send him to the shop to buy bread he gave me attitude
Tlhogi- Last night?
Ma- Yes. Around 19:00
Tlhogi- What time did he leave actually?
Tlhogi- He told me that he had a gig last night
Ma- Gig? What gig? He spend hours with his friend Mpho last night. I'm sure Mpho left at around 23:00
Ma- What's wrong?
Tlhogi- So he lied to me
Tlhogi- He told me that he had a gig last night. He even took me out to lunch today and bought me a dress coz he got paid
Ma- MJ hasn't been sleeping at home for the past three days
Tlhogi- That's strange
Ma- And it's unlike him. He told me that he was sleeping at Mpho's house
Tlhogi- What's going on with him?
Ma- I don't know
Tlhogi- I'm worried about him
Ma- Please try to talk to him. Maybe he'll open up to you
Tlhogi- I hope so
A short while later he returned. None of us asked him anything. I help Ma to bake then we had tea with the biscuits. An hour later after tea and gave me some biscuits then MJ walked me home
MJ- My love
Tlhogi- Where were you last night?
MJ- I was in Jo'burg. I told you that I had a gig
Tlhogi- Well that's not what your mom said
Tlhogi- MJ what's going on?
Tlhogi- Then why did you lie to me?
Tlhogi- She told me that you weren't sleeping at home for the past 3 days
Tlhogi- What? You can't speak?
Tlhogi- You haven't lied to me before. Why start now?
MJ- I'm sorry
Tlhogi- Who is she?
Tlhogi- Who is the bitch you're cheating with?
MJ- I'm not cheating on you
Tlhogi- Then what are you doing?
Tlhogi- Baby what's going on? Tell me
MJ- Let it slide
Tlhogi- What for?
MJ- Because it's none of your business
MJ- Okay that came out wrong
Tlhogi- Are you gonna talk or not?
Tlhogi- Just like that? When did we start keeping secrets from each other?
MJ- I don't wanna get you into trouble. I think I've walked you far enough. I'll see you tomorrow
He tried to kiss me but I pushed him. He didn't say anything but walked away
