Dad:but you have to stay here for a while and stop going to work till we know who we dealing with i’ll also ask Lungile to help us track down who’s been following you
Me:as in “Killer” Khumalo
Dad:starting today Scelo you can’t go back to you place

Part of me was excited because i’ll see Luh everyday. He then poured us Jameson and we gulped it down then we went back to the lounge Luh had already changed into pjs and she was watching movies kanti what is it with this girl and movies.
He smiled i do have some clothes nyana here so i went to my room that i sleep in when i’m here and took a quick shower then i found my boxer shorts and a vest i also put on my gown it was cold phela. Then i joined Luh in the lounge.
Me:why you always watching movies?
Luh:because it’s my first time watching them
Damn who doesn’t watch movies
Me:why didn’t you watch them before
She looked at me like i’m asking a stupid questions
She sat up straight and looked at me.
Luh:you don’t know anything about me do you?
Me:if i did i wouldn’t be askin
Luh: i was kicked out at home at a very young age so i’ve lived on the streets till your dad bought me here few days ago.
Then she went back to sleeping on the couch like she did not just drop that bomb on me i don’t know what i felt but i became sad.
I let her be and we watched movies the whole night then we slept around 23:20
Days went by Scelo was still living with us and everything was cool between us. So it’s monday and it’s my first day at school i’m excited and nervous at the same time i wore my uniform which suited me perfectly i looked good i even took a picture then went to have breakfast i greeted maGumede
MaG:Wow look at you waze wamuhle (you look beautiful)
Me:ngiyabonga ma (thank you)
MaG: bab’Nkosi uthe uvuse uScelo he’ll take you to school sebehambile bona (they said you should wake up Scelo he’ll take you to school because they gone already)
I ate then went and knocked on Scelo’s room
Scelo:Ngena (come in)
I went inside and he was still sleeping
Me:Scelo please take me to school
He opened one eye and looked at me
Scelo:give me 5mins
I nod then wait in the lounge for him
He takes longer then expected then comes out wearing sweat pants and a sweater and sneakers
I took my bag and said bye to maGumede and we left using dad’s Mercedes. Scelo was listening to hip hop it was silent in the car only music playing his grumpy in the morning i’ve noticed so i let him be we arrive at school and he accompanies me inside since we a bit late well at least he didn’t live me because i don’t even know where i’ll start this school is big. He took me to the office and gave me pocket money
Scelo:i’ll pick you later bye
And like that he left the principal called the head girl to escort me to class shortly we got there i thanked her then went inside jah neh all girls’. I had to introduce myself and then i found a seat next to this pretty girl and we got along immediately. Well i’m doing physics geographyLife science and Maths break time came and i sat with the girl i was telling you about she was also new her name is Zama we bought food then we sat down in our quad.
Zama:so where do you live?
Me:Yellow wood park
Zama:oh i live in New Germany
Me:i don’t know where is that
Zama:you will trust me
I smiled at her she’s forward she reminds me of Zipho
We spent break getting to know each other i didn’t tell her that i used to live on the streets thou we not on that level yet. She told me she has a boyfriend they’ve been together for 2years i wasn’t really interested in dating. So hours went by and it was finally time to go home i found Scelo already waiting for me he was leaning on his car this time and he looked like he came from work because he was wearing a perfectly tailored suit he looked dashing i won’t lie.
Scelo:Hawu no hug nyana
Scelo:since i’ll be you chauffeur
Scelo:yeap you heard right so everyday when i pick you up i expect a hug and a kiss on my cheek
Me:now you just taking it to far
Scelo: it’s either that or you take taxis baby girl
I looked at him i don’t know what game his playing. He opened his arms and i gave him a hug i tried escaping but he held on for a while then he kissed my cheek.
He let go and smiled then we went inside and drove off.
