Me:but you know how your daughters can be they very judgemental especially Thembi Me:leave that one alone as long as I love her nothing else matters.anyway where is she? Me:in the car Her:bring her in hao why you leaving that poor child alone in the car. I called her in and introduced her to everyone in the house they welcomed her with hugs and kisses my family can surprise you sometimes. She was shy playing with her fingers and her face was sweaty.I sent her a text message"relax they won't bite you" she looked at me and smiled. Ma: Vusi make us tea please we need to talk to our bride here Me:don't ask her a lot of questions especially you Thembi Her:as if you know I have a lot to ask you know me very well. Ma:kahle Thembi you will scare her with your questions and ntombi imbiza iyasha nga phandle(you burning the food) We both left leaving my grandmother with Olwethu I hope she doesn't scare her with lots of questions. . . . Banzi I stood at my corner waiting for my buyers everyone who is selling drugs or cigarette has his corner. I don't step on anyone territory and I expect the same from them.there this one guy who is busy stealing my customers I walked up to him.
