MJ- No sir you're not interrupting anything. We were just...
Dad- You don't owe me any explanation
MJ- I'll go check up on Fifi
He took his shirt and went to Fifi's room. I zipped up my pants.
Tlhogi- Can I get you a drink?
Dad- Do you even have to ask? Get me whiskey
Tlhogi- Papa I don't keep alcohol in my house
Dad- I was just testing you. I would have killed you
Tlhogi- I only have the soft stuff. The only strong drink I have is coffee
Dad- Just get me juice. How are the wedding preparations going so far?
Tlhogi- We did the fittings today. Kiki was here
Dad- Your mom said she'll come tomorrow. I don't know when Leroy will come
Tlhogi- Why do you guys have to stay in a hotel while this house has guest rooms
Dad- We don't want to invade your space
Tlhogi- MJ is hardly here
Dad- You need time to be together. I won't spoil that
Tlhogi- Okay but I still insist. My door is always open
Dad- Of course it is. Who bought you the damn house?
Dad- You can't possibly keep us away
Dad- Where's my granddaughter?
Tlhogi- She's in bed. She's catching cold
Dad- Shouldn't you take her to the doctor?
Tlhogi- No she'll be okay. I have her a couple of colds and flu shots
Dad- I can't believe you're getting married in two months time. Oh my little girl
Tlhogi- I've grown. I'm not a little girl anymore
Dad- It pains me when I think of all the years we were robbed together. 19 full years
Tlhogi- At least we've got each other now
Dad- It took me time to forgive your mom
Tlhogi- Forgiveness heals
MJ- Sir (coming into the kitchen)
Dad- Sit down
MJ- (sitting down)
Dad- Now that you've decided to marry my daughter I hope that you'll take care of her
MJ- Of course sir
Dad- Don't hurt her please. I don't want people to hurt those that I love
MJ- I respect her
Dad- And don't ever...I mean ever lay your hand on her. If ever I hear that you've hit her...hell will break loose
MJ- I hear you
Dad- Good. I just hope that you'll be happy and have many children. I want grandchildren
MJ- I'll give her many kids
Tlhogi- You wish
Dad- Five won't be bad
Tlhogi- Yoh Papa. Two is fine
Dad- I want a soccer team actually
MJ- Don't worry. I'm on top of my game
Tlhogi- You two
Dad- Have you found the venue yet?
Tlhogi- Yeah I have
MJ- But it's expensive. Couldn't we have found a better one with a better offer?
Tlhogi- I want that one
MJ- I swear by the end of this wedding I'll be broke
Tlhogi- As long as I have my dream wedding I don't really care
MJ- The bride price has already killed me and you're making things worse
Dad- That's the price you'll have to pay for my daughter. Just look at her. Isn't she beautiful. She's worth it
MJ- I can't argue with that. She's gorgeous
MJ- And I'm blessed to call her my fiancé. Soon to be wife and the mother of my children. I love you so much
Tlhogi- I love you too
We held hands 👫
Dad- You've got all the time to tell each other that. Right now behave
Tlhogi- Daddy you should see the dress I picked. It's beautiful
MJ- And costly
Tlhogi- I don't care coz I'm not gonna handle the expenses.
MJ- I think you should contribute
Tlhogi- Yeah maybe
Dad- Hau Letlhogonolo
Dad- You're working so you should contribute to the wedding costs
Tlhogi- I'll think about it
Dad- So are you still going to Lesotho?
Dad- MJ I hope you'll take care of my daughter when you get there. I'm counting on you
MJ- I'll do my best
Dad- I don't want her to come back thin
MJ- I'll make sure that I take care of her
Dad- That's good. Where's your mother. I want to talk to her
MJ- She's at her house
Dad- I'll talk to her when she comes to visit
MJ- I'll let her know that you want to talk to her
Dad- I have to go
Tlhogi- Please consider the offer of staying with me until the wedding
Dad- I'll sleep on it
Dad- Son take care of them
MJ- I will
Dad and I hugged and he left
MJ- You want him to stay here?
Tlhogi- The house is empty anyway
MJ- You have Fifi
Tlhogi- Yeah I know
MJ- That means we won't have time to ourselves
Tlhogi- We will
MJ- With them around?
Tlhogi- At your house
MJ- You can't always be driving to my house with Fifi. I'd rather drive here
Tlhogi- I get bored
MJ- You're usually at work so by 'bored' you mean?
Tlhogi- In the evening. I usually come back and cook after Sis' Bee leaves. I bath Fifi and the go to bed. She sleeps early so I can't really say we talk
MJ- You can always call me
MJ- Are you saying I'm boring?
MJ- Then what is it?
Tlhogi- I need to make Fifi's food. It's just about lunchtime
MJ- What are we gonna eat?
Tlhogi- I'm not hungry
MJ- So what about me?
MJ- Fine be like that
He made himself something to eat and then we watched TV together. He later left and it was just Fifi and I for the night. The next morning I woke up early to do something washing. As I was lining up the washing along the washing line a car pulled over at my gate. I wondered who it was. Thato got out of the car. I dropped the washing in fear. Unfortunately the gate wasn't locked so he came in. I backed away
Thato- Tlhogi wait
Tlhogi- You're not supposed to be here. You're supposed to be in jail
Thato- I got out
Tlhogi- Get away from me. Don't even take one step closer to me
Thato- I'm not here to hurt you. I come with peace
Tlhogi- How did you find me?
Thato- I'm not here to cause trouble. I'm here to apologize
Tlhogi- Leave or else I'll scream
Fifi got out of the house
Fifi- Mommy who's this?
Thato- Oh my God is that Fifi?
Tlhogi- Baby go back into the house
Thato- I don't wanna hurt you
Tlhogi- How am I supposed to know that?
Thato- Because I've learnt my lesson
He stepped forward and I put Fifi behind me. I was scared that he might rape me again like he did four years ago
