part 5 the blessed soul c3

I didn't let him go and his wife was crying and begging me to free him. My hands were trembling. I freed him. . Her- What's going on here? MJ- You gonna go to that witch and tell her to stop all this nonsense. Are we clear? Him- (breathing heavily) MJ- Stay away from my girls Him- Get out of my house MJ- Stay away. Far away . I kicked his ankle with my sneaker and pushed his wife out of my way. I stormed out like a mad man. I got to the door and went back to the dining room . MJ- Listen you and I are not done. I know that you didn't tell me everything. I'll come back for you. Nxa . I got into my car and drove off. I didn't go to the hospital coz I couldn't see Tlhogi at this stage. I was burning up and I didn't wanna scare her. I wanted to cool down first. I got to my flat and showered. I was still angry. How can someone be this wicked? How can someone even think of killing a baby for riches? I didn't eat that evening. Tlhogi kept on calling me but I just avoided her calls. What was I supposed to say to her? Honestly I didn't know how I was gonna break it to her. This would break her. She would want to know why her parents dumped her I hated to be the one to tell her this. The following day I went to work. I tried to keep my mind occupied my keeping myself busy. It didn't really help much I didn't wanna be fired at work so I tried not to look distracted. Immediately after I knocked off I went home to freshen up and change. I bought a takeaway for Tlhogi and I. I got to the hospital and she was sitting on the bed trying to stretch her legs . MJ- Hi Tlhogi- You're still alive MJ- Huh? Tlhogi- You were avoiding my calls MJ- I was busy Tlhogi- But you were online on WhatsApp MJ- ...it was work related Tlhogi- You can't even come up with a better lie. Geez MJ- I'm sorry Tlhogi- ... MJ- I've brought food. Hope it'll soften your heart and make you forgive me Tlhogi- Food? Are you for real? MJ- I hope you're hungry Tlhogi- And if I'm not? MJ- Then it's your loss. The meat is so juicy Tlhogi- Why were you avoiding me? MJ- I've already told you. I was busy with work Tlhogi- What time did you sleep? MJ- Around eleven Tlhogi- And you didn't even bother to take a minute of your time before you slept just to text MJ- I was exhausted. I'm here now Tlhogi- Is it another girl? MJ- Don't start Tlhogi- I'm sorry MJ- I went to see your uncle. Or should I say your fake uncle? Tlhogi- What? MJ- The stuff he said... Tlhogi- What did he say? MJ- I think we should eat first then we'll talk later Tlhogi- No I wanna talk now then I'll eat later MJ- You won't eat anymore Tlhogi- Then so be it. I wanna hear it MJ- You've been adopted Tlhogi- Excuse me what was that? MJ- All the people that you think are your family are not Tlhogi- Where did you take this? MJ- Tshidi told me. The reason why you were adopted is because your mom...Okay your step mom couldn't bare children anymore after she gave birth to Tumi. She wanted to be rich so her witch doctor said that she should get a girl child who'll have a daughter and that baby should be sacrificed in return for riches Tlhogi- No MJ- Your uncle and mom are working together in this Tlhogi- No way MJ- They adopted you

what was that? MJ- All the people that you think are your family are not Tlhogi- Where did you take this? MJ- Tshidi told me. The reason why you were adopted is because your mom...Okay your step mom couldn't bare children anymore after she gave birth to Tumi. She wanted to be rich so her witch doctor said that she should get a girl child who'll have a daughter and that baby should be sacrificed in return for riches Tlhogi- No MJ- Your uncle and mom are working together in this Tlhogi- No way MJ- They adopted you Tlhogi. That's why we're not sibling. We don't share the same father Tlhogi- Then who are my parents? MJ- (Shrugs) Tlhogi- (crying) MJ- I'm sorry for this Tlhogi- Please tell me that I'm dreaming MJ- I'm sorry Tlhogi- I need an explanation. I need to hear from her MJ- She can't come here Tlhogi- Then I'll go to her MJ- You can't leave the hospital Tlhogi- I need answers. Please take me to her MJ- The doctor won't approve Tlhogi- I don't care about the doctor I wanna know the truth MJ- Tlhogi.. Tlhogi- If you don't wanna take me I'll catch a taxi MJ- You'll hurt yourself Tlhogi- I don't care. She has a lot of explaining to do MJ- Okay I'll talk to the doctor Tlhogi- I don't need his approval. I'm going tomorrow morning. MJ- I'll go with you. You can't walk Tlhogi- I'll use my wheelchair . She didn't eat her food. She forced the doctor to let her leave the hospital. It was risky because she hasn't healed yet The doctor gave us 7 hours. I called my mom and asked her to come and babysit for a few hours and she agreed. We drove to her mom's house. When we got there she was surprised to see us. More like shocked . Ma- ... Tlhogi- How dare you? Ma- Excuse me. You didn't even greet me Tlhogi- Greet you? Who do you think you are MJ- Don't talk like that Tlhogi- How could you have such a dark heart? Ma- Watch how you talk to me? Tlhogi- Or what? You gonna chop off my head and get rich? Ma- What? Tlhogi- Don't play dumb. I know that you adopted me and I know why Ma- Don't disrespect me like that Tlhogi- You're not my mother Ma- I should have left you at the orphanage. In fact they should have left you in the rubbish bin Tlhogi- ... Ma- Yes. You were found dumped in a rubbish bin. You should have died there Tlhogi- ... Ma- I did you a favour and this is how you thank me? Tlhogi- (crying) Ma- No one wanted you. Your parents did the right thing by dumping you. You're rubbish MJ- Don't talk to her like that Ma- Shut up Tlhogi- I hate you Ma- You have no one. Your family doesn't want you. Which family? (laughs) You have no family. Go back to the rubbish bin with your premature child. MJ- Don't talk about my baby like that Ma- I hope she dies . Tlhogi grabbed her mom and I noticed she was wearing that diamond necklace. Tlhogi ripped it off her neck and I tried to get between them. I didn't know who to stop coz I was the one getting hurt I pulled Tlhogi out and dragged her to the car. She was bleeding from the open wounds. Her cry was so painful that I didn't know how to help her
