You would possibly agree with me if I told you that time flies. Before I knew it there were a few days left for the big day. A few days right? Can we call two a few?
I was at the salon doing my nails. Finger and toe nails. It was me Kiki her friend and Nina. We were gossiping there when the boys came in. MJ and Mpho
Tlhogi- Hey baby. What are you doing here?
MJ- Oh I didn't know that I shouldn't be here. I guess you've handled the bill
Tlhogi- No I haven't
MJ- Then I should be here paying
Tlhogi- I'm sorry
Mpho- Why do the toes coz you'll be wearing shoes?
Nina- Y'all please leave. You're interrupting our girl talk
Mpho- Who were you gossiping about?
Nina- You two
MJ- I think we should get going before we get more ripped off
Tlhogi- Yeah you should
MJ- Be beautiful for me on Saturday
Tlhogi- Love you!
MJ- Love you darling
He kissed me and they left after paying the bill in full. We gossiped even more and then I did my hair. Mom called saying that the dress has arrived. I went home to see it. It was so beautiful. I didn't put it on because I didn't wanna mess it up. If ever it doesn't fit on the big day then it'll be bad luck. I made food for myself. Five slices of bread with some cheese tomatoes polony and bacon
Aunt- Don't tell me that you're going to eat that
Tlhogi- (looking at the plate) Umm I will
Aunt- Do you want to gain weight? The dress won't fit
Mom- Hai tlogela ngwana (leave the child)
Tlhogi- Thanks Ma
Aunty- Don't come running to us when it doesn't fit. Plus I've noticed your jeans pinching you. Be careful
Mom- You can't starve yourself because of this. Eat
Tlhogi- What if...
Mom- Don't even think about the negative. Eat your food and get the energy
Tlhogi- Just once
Mom- You won't gain weight. Just eat hau
Tlhogi- Where's Fifi?
Mom- Her father came to take her about an hour ago
Tlhogi- Where to?
Mom- I didn't ask
Tlhogi- Okay. I just need to finish eating then lie down a bit
I was at the mall with my angel. I just needed time to cool down and just spend some time with her. I bought her whatever she wanted coz I had been given a gift card from my colleagues just to congratulate me for the wedding. After she had bought whatever it was that she wanted we went to Wimpy. I bought her food
MJ- Are you having a good time?
MJ- How is everybody treating you at home?
Fifi- Aunty always shouts at me when mommy is not around
MJ- Don't worry coz all of this is about to end. Would you like to have a little brother?
Fifi- Because he'll finish all my food
MJ- (laughs) no my angel
MJ- Do you like this food?
MJ- What else do you want daddy to buy for you?
Fifi- A princess dress
MJ- And what?
Fifi- And make up
MJ- Make up?
Fifi- Like the one mommy has
MJ- Mm baby you're too young for make up
MJ- Why? I don't know how to answer that
Fifi- Will I get ice cream today?
MJ- Of course you will It's hot today so mommy won't mind
Fifi- Daddy I love you
MJ- You do?
MJ- Daddy loves you too very much. You'll always be daddy's princess. Daddy's little girl. Daddy's angel
We were interrupted by someone poking my shoulder. I looked up at her
Shaz- Oh my Gosh it's really you. What happened to you? You look wow!
MJ- I've evolved
Shaz- Surely coz you're not the type of guy I used to know
MJ- Please join us
Shaz- Is this your child?
MJ- Yeah this is Fifi
Shaz- Hello baby. My name is aunty Shaz. What's your name?
Shaz- That's cute. Oh wow how old are you?
Fifi- I'm four
Shaz- You're a big girl. Yoh MJ you've changed
MJ- You haven't. You're still that beautiful lady who rejected me in front of the whole school
Shaz- I'm sorry for all that
MJ- It's okay. That was seven years ago. Back in high school
Shaz- Did you really love me?
MJ- At that time I think I did
Shaz- So where's the mother of your kid?
MJ- Preparing for our big day in two days
Shaz- You're getting married?
Shaz- Wow no one ever thought you'd get here
MJ- Only haters thought that
Shaz- Aren't I getting an invitation?
MJ- You're officially invited
Shaz- Thanks. And I'm truly sorry for the way I've treated you back then. I didn't know that you actually loved me that much. I was a fool to let you go
MJ- It doesn't matter anymore. We were still young anyway
Shaz- I wish I could turn the arms of the clock and have a better approach on the matter
MJ- Really now?
Shaz- Yeah. Maybe it would have been us preparing for our wedding
MJ- But it's not us
MJ- Yeah. What's done is done
Shaz- It seems like your life has taken a sharp turn now
MJ- A very sharp one
Shaz- Eish I wish I could reverse time and say yes to you
MJ- But you said no and dated the popular guy at school
MJ- That's life
