I did my shopping for hours and went back at home..I found my mother busy humming and cooking Me:"I'm back!!!" Her:"Oh sana lwami ngingaba yini ngaphandle kwakho (Oh baby I'm nothing without you)" She helped me with bags and kissed my cheek Me:"You seem to be happy What going on?" Her:"You father was here and we talked...and more talk" she winked at me.. Me:"mmmh more talk I see..lemme go and take a quick shower" Her:"Okay Love" I went to my bedroomTook of my clothes and took a shower..After showering I threw myself in bed I was bored at that time I needed a boyfriend..being single was boring In the midnight I woke up wanted to pee to badly.I might have fallen asleep because the lights were off I was tucked inside the duvets..I quickly get up rushed to the toilet. I went back in my room Before I could get inside my covers I heard some whispering outside I tiptoed in my windowMy heart was racing..I slowly opened the curtain a shadow passedI closed the curtain fastI heard to find who was outside our house..I opened it again but nothing..I went to the front doora shadow was busy pouring something infront of the doorI couldn't see the face because he/She was wearing all blackCovering the faceI rushed to my mother's bedroom. Me:"Mama! Mama! " Her:"Yin Luthando" she asked in a sleepy tone Me:"Kunomunt apha ochelayo (There's someone whose walking outside)" Her:"Maybe you were dreaming" Me:"Vuka! (Wake up)" she dragged her ads out of bed.
