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 

Luh’s pov

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 

Scelo:lets go

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

Me:thank you

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?

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.
