We were eating dinner as family like nothing happened and i decided to break the silence
Me:"You wanted to kill mom? " he chocked on his drink
Me:"Stop pretending like you don't remember...lay your hands on her again I promise you you won't see your unborn child"
Mom:"Hhaayi Luthando akusondlel yokuthetha no tata wakho leyo(don't talk to your father like thatRespect him)"
Me:"Respect is earned maLook at her neck You see those bruise!!you almost killed her"
Him:"I'm sorry I don't know what came over me..Luthando my child forgive me for hurting your mother" crocodile tears filled his eyes
Her:"It's okay baba" she warmly smile
Me:"Dad I love you but your actions changed me..when I look at you my blood boil Good luck with your wedding next week I'm not sorry for hitting with the Vice" I stood up Rinsed my bowl and call it a night
My father's behaviour changed He was the old Mandla He was sweet and CaringI had no idea whether it because his traditional wedding was near or what but ke we didn't want to think the worst He was my father after all.
The wedding day finally came Everyone was ready My mother was so beautiful one would swear that she was the one getting married.
Everything happened so fast Khwezi was introduced to the ancestors She was advised to respect the first wife I doubt she listened that girl was up to no Good..She officially Mrs Khwezi
Same day she moved in her House and Dad was going to spend his night with her.
Me:"Mom!!!" I called out because she seems far with her mind
Me:"Mama!!" she finally came back
Me:"Let's go to bed dad will spend the night with her .You know that stop hurting yourself "
Her:"I just can't...did you saw how happy he was?"
Me:"It doesn't matter mom..let's go and pray" we locked the door and went to he bedroom Then we prayed..
The following day everything was perfect until Khwezi asked us to have dinner with her
