part 3 married in contract

The following day..... Lubanzi:"We going to my mother's house later this afternoon" I nodded. Nicole: You have a mother?? I shot her a look. I always begged her not to ask Lubanzi stupid things. Lubanzi:"Yeah" he answered coldly. Nicole: "I have a mother too. She's sick to death." me: "you told you that she's sick to death??"She shrugged.. Lubanzi:"How is she?"I looked up at him. me: "Better." I didn't know how to answer that appropriately I wasn't expecting that question. Lubanzi:"That good"he smiled. I looked away. LATER that noon........ Lubanzi:"chill she's a kind woman" he said rubbing my hand I moved it away quickly" me: "i hope so." Lubanzi's mother and I didn't get the time to talk at the wedding. We know each other eye to eye but not exchanging words. We left the kids behind with our part time Maid. How I wish we took them with this was so awkward. Lubanzi:"We here"I snapped out of it and looked at this beautiful house. me: "Wow." I guess this guy is 4x richer than The president this house was really big(Triple stares). Lubanzi's mother:"Oh my you must me Thando" she smiled politely. me: "Hi mrs Ngobeni" Lubanzi's mother:"silly call me mom"I smiled back. my eyes widened when she attacked me with a hug making Lubanzi chuckle. Lubanzi: "Hi mom." He kissed her cheek and walked inside the house. "Thank you for loving him his been through alot"I faked a smile. me: my pleasure mam. "His Ex-wife was devil herself may her soul rest in hell"she left me still frozen by her statement. _ (Lubanzi and his mother having private conversation in the kitchen) "She look beautiful"Lubanzi's mother said smiling she was truly happy her son is moving on. Lubanzi: "mmmh."He hummed totally annoyed by this conversation. Lubanzi's mother:"She needs to know the truth you need to tell her" Lubanzi Huffed. Lubanzi: "I can't- Lubanzi's mother:"You have to you can't leave a lie forever. She needs to know about your past it will sat you free"Lubanzi kept quiet. Lubanzi's mother:"How did you meet anyway?? " Yes his mother didn't know it was an arranged marriage. Lubanzi: "uhm we met by aaarh-" Thando:"Thabo introduced me to him he was such a gentleman. Sweet and loving" She said walking in. Lubanzi looked at her but she immediately looks away. He wanted to thank her for saving him but didn't know where to start. Lubanzi's mother:"When are you having kids??"She asked jokingly . Lubanzi cleared his throat. Lubanzi: "Soon Very Soon." After saying that he drank the whole glass of water. Lubanzi: "We have to go now it late." Lubanzi's mother:"I wish you can sleep over"She complained. Thando: "It was nice seeing you ma"They hugged. Lubanzi's mother:"Take care of my son please"Lubanzi cleared his throat. Only if she knew Thando is the one who needs that. Lubanzi: "Love you."He kissed his mother's forehead. "Bye" _ ×Thando× "She likes you" We were now driving back home. me: "She's a kind woman." lubanzi smiled. For the first time we've known each other. Lubanzi:"I know" There was silence for sometime. "I'm sorry" I quickly turned to face him. "I know you probably hate me and I deserve it . Today you've made me realise how much of a jerk -" He stopped the car from nowhere and walked out. I see him pace up and down with his hands all over his face. And me on the other side I'm still shocked. He finally got in and kept quiet. "Have you ever loved someone so much- fuck!! look I'm sorry about what just happened and everything" i kept quiet. He started driving. The drive was so long The tension between us was beyond repairs. Week LATER...... I was sitting in the car with Lubanzi's mother while she was driving.I was looking outside the window. It is 3 months of our marriage. Lubanzi changed a lot. He has stopped hurting me physially though he still hurts me with his words not knowing it hurts me more. I remember for the first time I made breakfast for him he threw it in dustbin saying its better to eat poison rather than eating from my hands. And now the same person eats not only breakfast but every meal of day made by my hands. My chain of thoughts broke when the car stopped with jek. Mrs Ngobeni was taking me out
