I went back to the kitchen. I abused the vegies now coz I was angry with MJ.
MJ- You'll cut yourself
Tlhogi- Who should I cut? You?
MJ- Whoa! I'm not asking for any trouble
MJ- Please let's not fight in front of my future in-laws
Tlhogi- Yeah leave
MJ- Just like that?
Tlhogi- Is there something else?
MJ- Okay fine
He left. Mom came over to me
Mom- What was that about?
Tlhogi- Nothing I can't handle
Mom- Clearly you can't handle it because you're taking it out on the veggies
Tlhogi- I'll be fine. It's just a minor problem
Mom- I hope you sort it out soon. That man is going to be your husband in 48hours
Tlhogi- I know
Mom- Then you should be happy. Get rid of that ugly face and smile
Tlhogi- Are you saying I'm ugly?
Mom- You're ugly when you're angry. Smile
I cooked but I cooked rubbish coz my mind was somewhere else. I later went to bath Fifi and I bathed. I slept
I was woken up in the middle of the night by Fifi
Tlhogi- Baby what's wrong?
Fifi- I can't sleep
Tlhogi- What's the matter?
Fifi- I think there's someone at my window
Tlhogi- Aren't you over thinking things?
Fifi- No mommy
Tlhogi- Let's go check
We went to her room and I looked out the window but there was no one
Tlhogi- There's no one here
Tlhogi- Go back to bed. You were probably dreaming
Tlhogi- Sleep tight
I put her under the covers and kissed her forehead. I switched off the light and went back to bed. I woke up the next day and found 7 missed calls from MJ. My phone was on silent. I called him back
MJ- Hey I've been trying to call you
Tlhogi- I was sleeping and my phone was on silent
MJ- I just wanted to hear your voice
MJ- And to tell you that I love you!
Tlhogi- You're so sweet
MJ- I just can't wait for tomorrow when I make you Mrs Mokoena
Tlhogi- What are you doing right now?
MJ- I'm in my room practising my vows
Tlhogi- I know mine my heart
MJ- Don't eat too much coz you might not fit but your dress
Tlhogi- You sound like my aunt now
MJ- I'm serious
Tlhogi- I'll starve myself
MJ- You'll faint
Tlhogi- I don't wanna be fat
MJ- Fat or skinny
you'll still be beautiful
Tlhogi- I'll just have some fruits today
MJ- Listen I'm sorry about yesterday. I didn't mean to upset you. I want you to trust and believe me. I'm not cheating on you
Tlhogi- I overreacted
MJ- So you forgive me?
MJ- Thanks babe
Tlhogi- Whoever that Shaz is she'd better stay the hell away from my man
MJ- Of course
Tlhogi- Oh and invite her to our wedding so I can see her
MJ- I've already did
Tlhogi- Good. Her and I had better talk before things get out of hand
MJ- As long as you don't humiliate her coz she did nothing wrong
Tlhogi- I'll be firm
MJ- Kiss Fifi a kiss for me. Tell her that I'll see her tomorrow
Tlhogi- I love you
MJ- I love you too!
I hung up and went to bath.
After breakfast everybody was busy. Ma called me. We sat inside the house coz it was busy outside.
Ma- I wanted to know if all the arrangements for the traditional wedding are in order
MJ- Yeah Ma everything is sorted
Ma- You've grown now and I'm so proud of you
MJ- I couldn't have done it without you
Ma- I'll get to see your achievements before I die. You've made me proud my son and I'm very happy. I know that Tlhogi is the right woman for you and that she's a good person. I don't have to worry about you because I know that she'll take care of you
MJ- And I'll take care of her
Ma- Don't disappoint me. Always love her like you've always done. You two come a long way
MJ- I can't believe I used to doubt her love for me. She's totally different and she has accepted me the way I am. She didn't try to change me
Ma- And always know that my door is open if ever you have problems
MJ- Thanks mama
Ma- Give me a hug
I stood up and we hugged
Hours passed and I was getting nervous by a minute. Kiki tried to calm me down but it didn't seem to work. I slept very early that evening because I didn't wanna struggle to wake up in the morning. I woke up and when I checked the time it was 23:00. I went back to sleep. When I woke up for the second time it was 23:33. I felt like the clock had stopped. Time wasn't moving. I finally slept until I woke up at 05:00 when my alarm rang. I put on my gown and went to the kitchen. Everyone was awake
Mom- Oh my baby you don't know how happy I am today
Tlhogi- I'm nervous
Mom- It's normal. Go and brush your teeth so we can have breakfast
I went to brush my teeth then went to wake Fifi up
Tlhogi- Baby wake up. It's the big day
Tlhogi- Yes. Come daddy is waiting for us
Fifi- Where is he?
Tlhogi- He's not here. We'll go to him
I lifted her and bathed her. We had breakfast and then I went to bath. My make up artist came and she did magic. I then got into my wedding gown. Luckily it fit perfectly
My bridesmaids were also dressed. Fifi was also dressed and she was so adorable. I was damn nervous to even leave the house. I was using my brother's car. A Rolls Royce
We got to the venue and everybody was already there waiting for us. The nerves started kicking in. I felt my knees go weak as my dad held my arm to walk me down the isle. I told myself 'this is it' as I stepped on the red carpet. Everybody stood up. My heart... I was so nervous 👣
