Baxolele


What Lihle did to me was wrong I know I didn't want the child but to be played like that was something I didn't deserve. I miss Thuli so much and she wants nothing go do with me. I stood outside her grandmother's house in a hope that I will see her by chance but nothing I guess am fooling myself she is not here.


When I was about to leave I saw Gcebile that woman is a dragon am even afraid to speak to her. She came toward my car.


Her: what are you doing here?

Me:I was looking for Thuli is she home?

Her:no she is in Durban now. She will be staying there for good.

Me:oh I didn't know. She blocked my number.

Her: am not surprised iphara elifana nawe brings nothing but heartache. You messed with her she was now out of line that's why we sent her away.

Me:I apologise for that. Can I have her address.

Her:awusho what's your name?

Me: Baxolele Xhasa am Mabutho's nephew.

Her:Mabutho thee Mabutho?

Me:yes Ma.

Her:wow wow. Am on my way to Durban care to give me a lift? This could be the right time to fix things with Thulisile.

Me:hope ma.


She seemed excited that am related to Mabutho she kept on singing him praises if she loves Mabutho like this I have no doubt that she will influence Thuli to be mine again.

The house was filled with so much emotions the girls were miserable the pain that was in their eyes was heart breaking they didn't even want to eat. Boniswa was sitting on the mattress candle was burning at the corner windows were white showing that we have lost someone in the family. The mourners were coming in and going out they came with comforting words the last time I saw this was at my father's funeral.


Me: MaButhelezi am coming just now am going to fetch my uncle from the airport.


She nodded I know she hates what I have put her through but this is for our own good it had to be done.

What Mlungis is putting me through is wrong.Who are we going to bury? Are we going to bury an empty coffin? I closed my eyes again. I am really tired sitting on this mattress the whole day is very uncomfortable and the blanket I have on my shoulders is very hot.

Ukholwam ngiyonyuka nalo

Ndilu bambe ngesandla ngiyo ngena nalo.

Ekhaya zulwini♪


The church ladies walked in singing the leader was Gcebile she decided to fake her crying we all know how she made fun of my mother in-law now she is acting like she feels pain.


Gogo:au Kahle Gcebile ngomsindo(stop making noise)

Gcebi:oh MaButhelezi may your soul rest in peace 


My grandmother prayed then she passed on comforting messages. As we were about to sing again the windows banged loud as if someone was banging themthe candle went off and on again it was terrifying. 


Lady1: umoya umubi lona

Gogo: in the name of Jesus I cast you out evil spirit Phuma Satan Phuma!!


The windows broke and everyone screamed while others made a run of their lives some remained and prayed hard whatever it is it has nothing to do with Nomanzi. I believe my husband has put her on the leash. I scanned the room and I saw a shadow passing near me I screamed and it was light out for me.

Mlungisi


When I got home I was told about the incident that has occured . if this is Nomanzi she will know me better I went to the bedroom and asked some of the mourners to excuse us I needed to talk to my wife.


Me:Thembalami what did you see.

Her:your mothers shadow that's what I saw

Me:how?

Her:I don't know but it was her. Mlungisi where is her body?

Me:somewhere.

Her: you will have to dig her body out otherwise we won't rest. She has stirred trouble and people are talking that her spirit is not happy. Do something please.

Me: Boniswa I can't do that. 

Her: then who are we going to burry?

Me:let me worry about that please right now don't stress yourself I have everything under control.


I felt cold hands touching me and Boniswa looked terrified she was pointing at the thing that was standing behind me. She sang and all my sanity went away with no doubt it is my mother I slowly turned and she had both her hands on the chest and she was crying.


Me:mama am sorry.

Boniswa: Mlungisi dig out her body please 

Me:mama ngixolele

Boniswa: Mlungisi listen to me.


My voice was slowly betraying me and my guilt was not going away right there I felt like confessing my sins. This is not the life I have imagined I need to visit Zombotha he needs to give me something that will wash this pain away.
