Gcina I have managed to find my father good thing is he was still around the province planning to go to KwaZulu Natal seeing another baby mama. We met at my moms I can tell you mom was not too happy about him coming to her house. Him: so you engaged? Me: yes sir Him: did you pay Lobola for her Me:no we will pay lobola in the next few months Him:few months? You have money to buy the ring but you can't pay lobola next week? Son this is wrong you were supposed to pay lobola before you can even think of buying a ring. What you did is totally unacceptable. Me: baba that is the whole point I want us to write the letter and send it to the Mdlulis . Him: you will have to ask your aunts and uncle to be part of this mina I can't be part of it. Me: is it because of the ring? Him: no I got a job at Kzn so I won't be able to negotiate for you. Me: ohk I see Him: son do not waste time pay the lobola even if it just half of it that girl cant be wearing your ring for more than 3 months it is bad luck I wish I could understand what he means when he said it could be bad luck people get married after a year and they don't get any bad luck so why would I be in a bad luck. . . . Mpilo Me: come in Gugu walks in wearing short dress making her legs bit longer she has her hair lose she comes and sit on my desk. Me:can I help you with something Her: yes please. I heard Bongi saying you very good in the sack so I want to be a judge of that. She opens her legs wide she is not wearing anything underneath her dress her vigina is shaved no single hair. I started sweating just by looking at it it took me a minute to come back to my senses. Of course I did get a boner I wont lie am a man after all. I got up from my chair. Me: what the hell you doing ? I want you to leave my office right now. Her: relax I wont bite you Me: I said GET OUT!! Her: fine I will leave but if you ever need to unwind you can call me. I dragged her out of my office Me: I want you to stay away from me

it took me a minute to come back to my senses. Of course I did get a boner I wont lie am a man after all. I got up from my chair. Me: what the hell you doing ? I want you to leave my office right now. Her: relax I wont bite you Me: I said GET OUT!! Her: fine I will leave but if you ever need to unwind you can call me. I dragged her out of my office Me: I want you to stay away from me my family and my building. I called security office telling them that Gugu should never ever set her foot in my health centre. . . . Thandi I had a meeting with Nonnie she will be in business with us I could see how nervous she was when I was about to tell her the good news. I asked her to design me a dress that I will wear on my wedding day it is going to be a traditional dress I don't want a white wedding. As I was driving back to the shop I saw Romeo going in some restaurant part of me wanted to pass by the other part wanted to greet him so I packed my car and went in I saw where he was sitting so I chose a table that is not far from him. I placed an order of chicken salad and still water he came by my table and opened a chair. Him: hope you don't mind me joining you Me: Romeo what brings you here Him: well I was going to meet one of the guys who is selling his farm in Middleburg but he said he can't come. Me: I see... you look nice Him: thank you am going to Cape Town after my meal I feel famished . You know I have a wine yard there so am going to check if everything is still in order. Me: that is good for you. We talked about the past school businesses and he couldn't stop bragging about how monied he is good thing that came out of this is he gave contacts of possible sellers maybe just one day I would go into this farming business. Him: it was nice talking to you again if it wont be a problem can I pay for your meal Me: no its ohk I will pay Him: please Thandiwe just for old times sake. Me: ohk fine Him: finally ... see you around then. We shaked hands and he left . I drove back to the shop after Siya called me informing about Londi going MIA thats it this girl is kissing her job good bye today she has been skating on thin ice for too long now that she thinks it's ohk to neglet her job. . . . Gugu It really broke my heart the way Mpilo dismissed me is he that blind to see how much I love him. I was an emotional wreck I was breaking things in my room tears kept on blinding me I stood next to the mirror looked at myself I wiped my eyes tears were just coming out uncontrollable. Me: why can't someone love me why do I always have to be rejected by people I love. "Girl you beautiful and you know it don't worry Mpilo loves you he is scared to admit it" I looked around I couldn't see who was speaking to me the voice sounded just like mine. This has never happened before even when I burned people with acid I never heard this voice before. I took a bottle of pills in my drawer " you don't need those you perfectly fine without them you not sick only sick people drink pills you are healthy so stop what you doing" Me: who are you? What do you want ? Where you from? "I am you I want you to be happy I am from Ermelo look in the mirror and you will see me" I looked in into the mirror the only person I could see it was me and I did look like a mess. Me: please stop talking to me you not real and you not speaking in my head. " I am real Gugu and you know it stop being in denial you can see me as much as I can see you. I may have not spoken to you before but now am here am tired of watching you torturing yourself with those pills from today we going to get that man. " I still had the pills in my hand just as I was about to put them in my mouth. . " if you really love Mpilo you wont take them imagine how he will feel once he knows that you taking pills just so you don't go bananas flush those pills right now you love Mpilo right. I nodded "am sorry what was that" Me: yes I do love him "Then flush them then clean your face" I did as I was told I wonder why am I hearing this voice this is really strange. . . . To be contuined
