I was woken up in the morning by my mom
Mom- Tlhogi it's time to wake up baby
Tlhogi- What's the rush Ma?
Mom- You have a lot of things to do today. You and MJ will have to go taste the food that'll be cooked on the wedding day. You have to start practising your steps. You have to pick up the bridesmaids dresses. You have to do a lot of things
Tlhogi- I wish I had superpowers
Mom- But you don't. Come
I got off the bed and put on my gown and sleepers. I was still sleepy. It was very busy at the kitchen. So these were the people who were at my house:
Mom Kiki and my two aunts and Fifi. I greeted them and got myself a glass of water. I went to bath and then Kiki and I went to pick up the dresses. Nina and Kiki's friend were busy so they couldn't come. The dresses were ready so we took them home. I drove to MJ's place because we had stuff to do. The door was wide open so I went in
Koko- You don't just barge into someone's house without knocking. Where are your manners?
Tlhogi- Dumela koko. I didn't see you there
Koko- I'm invisible
Tlhogi- It's not like that
Koko- Mojalefa is not here
Tlhogi- Not here? But we have to go
Koko- He'll probably be back soon
Tlhogi- Where did he go to?
Koko- He didn't say. He left with his friend Mpho
Tlhogi- He can't do this to me
Koko- Sit down so long
I sat down
Koko- In two weeks you'll be Mrs Mokoena
Koko- Then you'll come with us to Lesotho for a week
Tlhogi- (clearing throat)
Koko- There's no going back
Tlhogi- I'm not tryna go back koko
Koko- You know I'm truly happy that you managed to stick with my grandson for six years
Tlhogi- I love him
Koko- So what are you planning to do with those nails?
Tlhogi- I'll get a pretty manicure before my wedding
Koko- Will you be able to cook with those nails?
Tlhogi- I think so
Koko- I hope so
Tlhogi- Koko did MJ mention anything to you about the honeymoon?
Koko- Mojalefa and I don't talk about those things
Kagiso came into the house. He is fourteen now. He was in high school and no longer that little boy you used to know. He was just a different person. He had skinny jeans on a T-shirt
sneakers and a cap. He had swag basically
Kg- Aunty Tlhogi
Tlhogi- Hey. It's been a while
Kg- Yeah I've been longing to visit but MJ kept on making excuses for bringing me to your house
Tlhogi- You look good
Koko- He's following his brother's footsteps. Look at how he has lowered his plants. A true reflection of Mojalefa
Kg- Koko you need to understand the trends
Koko- What trends?
Kg- Eish koko. Where's MJ?
Koko- He went out
Kg- When do you think he'll come back?
Koko- You have a phone so call him. I'm not his keeper
Kg- Koko are you dropping bombs on me?
Kg- Never mind
MJ walked in
Tlhogi- Hey love
Kg- MJ I've been waiting for you. You promised me money
MJ- Kagiso give me a break.
Kg- But I need to get going
MJ- Why don't you ask Ma? I have a wedding to pay for
MJ- You're always sucking me dry. I'm not an ATM
Kg- I need that money
MJ- Okay sharp.
He took out his wallet and gave him R400
MJ- Don't ask me for money again
Kg- Aunty Tlhogi I'll see you around
MJ- He wants to see me broke and out
Tlhogi- What's the money for?
MJ- Don't even ask
Koko- He should not buy alcohol with that money
MJ- Kagiso doesn't drink. I'd kill him. He knows
Tlhogi- He's grown now
MJ- I just wish he'd just be that little boy he's always been. He even knows girls now.
MJ- You know how boys are
Tlhogi- You'd better talk to him about...sex and stuff. You don't want him making mistakes
MJ- I do talk to him
Koko- When? You two always fight
MJ- I said I talk to him. Every now and then
Tlhogi- Baby we should get going
MJ- Yeah sure. Koko I'll see you later
We left. After running errands all day we finally took some time out. He bought food and drinks and we sat in the car
Tlhogi- So you still don't wanna tell me about the honeymoon?
MJ- It's a surprise
Tlhogi- Okay. There's this aunt of mine who came and she wastes food like nobody's business. I was so pissed yesterday
MJ- We should just get married sell our houses and buy a new one in Midrand
Tlhogi- That's has always been your dream
MJ- It's finally coming true. Thanks for being patient with me
Tlhogi- Yeah I remember when you were still broke. You couldn't even buy me a drink but you know I didn't care. I loved you even more
MJ- People used to make fun of me
Tlhogi- Look at us now. You're a Physicist and you'll have you're masters soon. I'm proud of you
MJ- I couldn't have done it without you. You're my pillar of strength
Tlhogi- I love you so much
MJ- I love you too!
Tlhogi- Soon it'll be me you and Fifi at our house. Fifi playing outside while we sit around the pool having our cocktails
MJ- And I'll knock you out after we get married. You'll be carrying our son. My heir
MJ- MJ junior
Tlhogi- Junior Mmm
MJ- My little duplicate
Tlhogi- I can only imagine him
MJ- We'll be a happy family. Just the four of us
Tlhogi- What if the baby is a girl?
MJ- Then we'll keep on trying until we have a boy
MJ- Even if we have 10 kids I don't mind
Tlhogi- Imagine me having ten kids
MJ- I'll create a soccer team. I'll be the goalkeeper
Tlhogi- You're crazy
MJ- That's because I'm crazy about you MaMokoena
I looked at him. He was looking into my eyes. I blushed away
