ISITHEMBU:THE SECOND WIFE
I was woken up by Blessing's cries. I slowly got up from the bed and walked over to his cot that I was given by Mrs Molapo. I took him as I tried to make him quiet. Finally those tiny cries stopped as I fixed his bathing water. After bathing himI breastfeed him as a knock came through. I walked over to the door still with my little boy.
Me:"Kokoit's still early is there something you need...?" I asked making my way in with her following me.
Koko:"NoI just came to check up on you I hope this little one does not give you any troubles"
She said that settling down at the near seat opposite the bed
Me:"He's a little devil this oneBut I can't complain"
I sighed placing Blessings down walking over the kitchen to make some tea.
Koko:"He's a blessing though... You are so lucky to have him"
I sighed as I pour the hot water in the cups that I was placing on top of the table
Me:"He's really a blessing Koko"
I took the cups walking over to the room where Koko was.
Me:"I'm glad he's minedespite everything I went through... Blessings came as a blessing"
I smiled handing her a cup of tea
Koko:"My dearI actually ceame to talk to you about a serious matter"
I looked up to her
Me:"What is it Koko...?"
She sighed placing her cup of tea on the floor since there was no table here
I looked at her waiting for an explanation
Koko:"I have a Heart disease well I've been with it but now the doctor said it's too much"
I looked at her as a smile appeared on her face
Me:"Kokoyou can't die"
Koko:"I'm old Nandi so I'm not scared of death"
A tear escaped my eye as I looked down
Me:"What am I going to be without you Koko"
Koko:"There are many chancesyou are still young Nandi... You are Nineteen Go back to school"
I shook my head looking her her
Me:"I can't go back to school KokoI really can't"
She placed her hand on my shoulder
Koko:"Look at the bright side Nandiphayou can still make it"
I looked at the sleeping Blessings
Koko:"That child needs youA child is too expensive Nandi and you can't take Care of him nge R3000.00 think about it"
I walked over to a table full of guys. I sighed before taking a glare at them
Me:"Good afternoon I'm Nandipha and I'll be your waitress at the moment"
A cute guy lifted his head as the others kept on talking
Guy:"Uhmm.... I'm Romeo Santos "
I smiled at him and all of them looked at my way
Romeo:"Uhmm can you please get me today's special"
The other guy clear his throat before he talked
Guy:"Beautiful... I'm Andile and Uhmm you can also get me today's special"
The other guys ordered the same meal and I walked over tp the kitchen.
I took their orders to them as I continued with my work. Rose came over to me as I was busy with the tables. Well Rose is a friend not someone I could call my best friend since she's just a friend.
Rose:"Uhmm Nandithose guys wants you"
I looked at where she was pointing and it was thee Romeo and his friends. I sighed as I turned to do what I was doing
Me:"Tell them I'm busycan't you see that I'm really Busy Rose"
Rose:"Come on stop being uptight Nandi hamba"
Me:"No leave me aloneI'm not going there and you won't force me"
I shouted as Mrs Molapo made her way in
Mrs Molapo:"Nandi what's going on here"
I looked away
Me:"It's nothing Mrs MolapoWe were just having an argument nothing serious"
Mrs Molapo:"But it looked so serious are you sure you are Ohk..?"
Me:"Yes Mrs Molapo"
Me:"Koko are you Ohk...?"
I asked as soon as she handed me Blessings
Koko:"Don't worry about me NandiI'll be fine"
I looked at her for a while
Me:"Is there something i can do for you because I really don't mind"
Koko:"As I said Nandi I'm Ohk there's nothing wrong with me you can go its late"
I sighed before taking Blessings baby bag
Me:"Call me if you need anything Koko"
I said that before walking out. I really need a good sleep
Koko:"Morning NgwanakaHow are you..?"
I smiled before handing her Blessings
Me:"I'm good KokoHow about you...?"
Koko:"I'll be fine
Koko:"I'll be fineDon't worry about me"
Me:"Koko I think you should go and see a doctor"
Koko:"As I said Nandi I'm Good so I don't need any doctors I'll be fine"
I looked at her
Me:"Ohk KokoI'm going to work then"
Koko:"Go well Ngwanaka"
I walked in as I glared over Roseshe smiled coming over to me.
Rose:"Hey Girl how are you?"
Me:"I'm good RoseWhere's everyone?"
She smiled waving her hand
I looked at her hand and saw a shining thing and I noticed it's a ring
Me:"Oh My God Rose you are Engaged....?"
Rose:"Yes Darling I'm A wife to be"
I have never imagined Rose as a Wife
Me:"Who's the lucky guy..?"
I asked walking over to the restroom and Rose was following me
I looked at her with my popped eyes
She rolled her eyes
Rose:"He's not a Blesser and he was not a Blesser for a start"
Me:"Oh Come onhe's about 50 something years and you are Twenty"
Rose:"I love himhe loves me so It's cool"
I laughed as I walked over to start working
Me:"You love him or his money..?"
Rosw:"Well uhmm Both"
Me:"Yeah I can telllet's start working Miss Engaged
I looked at my beautiful wife as I plant a kiss on her forehead.
Me:"I love you Mpilo"
She smiled Brushing her Invisible stomach
Mpilo:"I love you more SililoI can't live without you"
Me:"I bet you can't"
I got out of the covers walking over to the bathroom. After doing my hygiene process I walked over to Mpilo
Me:"Baby wake upwe have to get ready remember there is a ceremony taking place today"
She turned to the other side
Mpilo:"Postpone it Baby"
Me:"Thats impossible Mpilo wake up"
She got out of the covers heading to the bathroom. After some few minutes she can by. She finished dressing up
I walked over to him as I held his waist
Me:"Let's go downstairs"
I held her as we walked downstairs finding everyone around the table eating
I said that settling around the table with Mpilo next to me
They responded as we always started eating
Mkhulu:"MakotiI really hope you are carrying a Prince because we all know that Dalokuhle won't be a Prince"
Me:"He's next on the Throne Mkhuluhe must just leave this gay thing"
Dalokuhle sighed before fixing his eyes on me
Dalokuhle:"It's better not to be a King than being someone I'm not I'm gay and that's it"
Dalokuhle:"Cha Tataif you are not welcoming me the way i am then it's fine I'll be out of your lives"
Baba:"Son you are still confused"
Dalokuhle:"Being 15 does not mean that I don't know myself I'm gay"
He said that standing up heading upstairsnow
Arabella:"That was not necessary Bhut'omncan"
Me:"I will talk to him Don't worry"
Me:"Dalokuhle... Please hear me out"
Dalokuhle:"Tata I won't change myself I'm gay and there's nothing you can do about it"
I sighed before sitting on top of the bed
Me:"I want to tell you that... It's fine you can be the way you are I accept you"
Dalokuhle:"I don't want you to feel guilty or something Tata"
Me:"No it's fine Really I want to bond with you as my son"
Dalokuhle:"Thank you Tata"
Weeks went by and things were really good. I was spending most of my time with Romeo Santos and he's quite a nice guy. I looked up to him as he smiled at me
Romeo:"Don't look at me like that Nandi"
I giggled before taking my ice cream from him
Me:"What's wrong with looking at this cute face of yours"
Romeo:"So you think I'm cute..?"
I laughed as he took my hand on his
Me:"I didnt mean in that way"
Romeo:"In what way..?"
Me:"That... Let's hurry Koko must be worried"
Romeo:"Yeslet me take you home"
I walked in as my eyes landed on some unfamiliar face
Me:"Uhmmm Good evening"
Lady:"Good Evening you must be Nandi"
I sighed before taking my son from him
Me:"What's going on? Where's Koko?"
She looked away as she sighed
Lady:"I'm Koko's daughter Annah and I... Mme is dead"
Annah:"YesI received a phone call from a neighbor saying Mme is dead"
I slide down as tears streamed down my cheeks not believing it... She can't be dead
I looked at all the things she gave me. I sighed taking a sit on top of the bed.
Me:"Koko how can you leave me like this"
I wipe a tear that has already escaped as I finished up dressing Blessings
A knock came through as I was still dressing him up.
I walked over to attend the door
Me:"Auntie Annah how can I help you?"
Annah:"Uhmm I think it's time for you to go"
Annah:"You are no longer welcomed hereKoko is nolonger here so I want you to take all your shit and leave my house"
Me:"But it's lateI can't be walking with a baby at this time Annah"
Annah:"You go around opening those skinny legs for every man so it's not my fault. Nna I want you gone"
I was startled by a scream from the bathroom. I quickly ran over there finding Mpilo at the floor crying
Me:"Baby what's wrong?"
I asked making my way to her
Mpilo:"M...My baby Nkazimulo my Baby"
I saw blood next to her and i quickly picked her up running out of the house
I was pacing up and down as I saw a doctor walking over to me. I quickly stood up
Me:"Doctor what's wrong with my wife..? Is she Ohk?"
Doctor:"Yes she's fine but I... I'm sorry she lost the baby"
Lots of love
