Nozi and I have been dating for a month now everything is roses and we are very close. Thapelo complains about me not spending time with them anymore Don has been nagging Nozipho to hook him up with her friend Palesa my mom constantly asks me to bring her over for dinner and Lydia wants to know every little detail about what we do.
Mandla is the only one who haven't met my girlfriend. I wanted to introduce my friends to her at once over lunch month end but Don introduced himself behind my back and Thapelo gate-crashed our third date.
Today is Saturday we are going to a double date with Phumla and Mandla. Thapelo wanted to tag along with his new girlfriend but his babymama showed up with suitcases this morning.
"Babe this is my friend Mandla and this is his wife Phumlile. Guys my woman Nozipho" I introduced them
"So Nozi you are the reason why Bura doesn't hang with us anymore" Mandla asked brushing Phumla's hand. Always lovebirds!
"So you've met Thaps sorry babe I also went through the same misery" Phumla said.
Mandla nudges her with an elbow playfully "Aybo babe don't badmouth Thapelo he is not that bad there is Donald remember"
I chuckled thinking of Don's possible answer to that.
"Ya neh!" Phumla agreed.
"No guys I think Don is the sweet one" Nozi told them I cleared my throat.
"Babe please don't let him hear you saying that because we will never hear the end of it." I warned her.
Mandla laughed and tell her Don will probably use that as the testimony when approaching girls .
I mimick Don's deep hoarse voice "Hey babe I'm Donald the sweet guy even Nozipho Faya said so"
We laugh Don would probably charge us R100s if he hears us laughing at his voice. He made us swore to never criticise his voice because we would pay. His voice is the only thing he hate about himself but girls find it sexy.
"So it's true not only girls are gossipers" Phumla said her and Nozi laugh.
"Trust them women to be the most twisted human beings they initiated a topic when we breath a few words we are suddenly gossiping
ay shame!" I said as I fork a piece of meat from Nozi's plate she punches my arm.
"Nozi so what do you do for a living except for being the beautiful girl on front covers?" Phumla asked.
I would love for them to get along because Mandla is my brother from another mother. So it will be a pity to have our women disliking each other.
"I'm a fashion designer I own and run a few boutiques here and abroad."
"Your family do you have any siblings?" Mandla who doesn't know Google and newspapers asked. Who doesn't know Nozipho is the only child duh!
"Well I'm the only child I have brother-like cousins though" she answered sincerely.
"You don't look like the 'only child' I must say" Phumla commented.
"How does the only child look like Phumla?" I asked both Mandla and I looks at her.
"Well they are mama's babies even when they're old they are softies and irritating spoilt-brats"
I coughed out louder than necessary Mandla cleared his throat dramatically. Phumla and Nozi were dead with laughter.
We finished dinner and went to watch The Hateful Eight in Musgrave. We had a great time. Nozi and Phumla exchanged numbers.
We hugged goodbye and parted.
"We are going to your house right?" Nozi asked fastening her seatbelt.
We have been together for a month but we've never slept together. We meet up in hotels kiss cuddle and just talk. I don't want to rush things with her unless she is ready.
"Yes babe if that what you wants" I told her she smiled and put on Sam Smith-Stay with me.
I stop the engine and pull her towards me. I suck her lower lip then penetrate her mouth with my tongue. We deep kiss for minutes.
We pull away breathing hard.
I cup her face and stare into the big eyes that made me lose control the first time I saw her.
"I love you Nozipho"
She blink the tears away. I turn the radio off and hold her hands to my chest.
"GUESS IT TRUE IM NOT GOOD AT A ONE NIGHTSTAND
BUT I STILL NEED LOVE CAUSE IM JUST A MAN
THESE NIGHTS NEVER SEEM TO GO TO PLAN
I DON'T WANT YOU TO LEAVEWILL YOU HOLD MY HAND
I WANT YOU TO STAY WITH ME CAUSE YOU ALL I NEED"
I sang with the sweetest voice yep I can sing! Tears are just rolling down her cheeks she haven't removed her eyes from mine.
"I love you Nozipho" I wipe her tears with my hand.
"I love you so much Sbu I‘ve never felt this way for anyone. Please promise me you'll never leave me no matter what" she said with the sweet crying voice.
"As long as I breath I will love you girl" I assured her.
"Till time stands still Sbu"
I nod and kiss her forehead.
"Now let go home so that we can have sex" I said starting the car. She widen her eyes and then we laughed.
