Bonga I went out with friends and got drunk on purpose because I didn't want Ntombi to go to that stupid therapist. I know how such things work. The therapist asks the patient tricky questions and patients end up spilling the bean on some deep personal things. Ntombi will find herself telling that woman that I've hit her a few times and the therapist will lay a charge of domestic violence against me without Ntombi's consent. This patient doctor confidentiality only goes so far. When a doctor feels their patients life is at risk they can tell a third person without the consent of the patient. All it the name of "saving a life". Ntombi doesn't need saving because her life is in no danger. My friends adviced me to put my foot down and forbid her from going. I thought me not pitching to pick her up at home would have been enough to make her realize that I don't want her to go but no she just had to play smart by asking that slut Sindi to help her. You know because I have eyes everywhere. Someone saw them getting on a taxi together. I didn't believe it first because Ntombi has never bothered to go to town alone. The furthest she's been out alone was to go to our local spaza which was just a street away. She does not know how the taxi system works either so obviously that skinny witch Sindi is corrupting my woman. I wanted to go to Sindi's home but I'm know better than to anger her old man. We grew up hearing that he is a gangster hiding behind a police uniform. I once saw with my own eyes how he nearly beat up a drug dealer to death with his bare hands. After realizing Ntombi had gone I went back to my friends they advised me to teach her a lesson. There is only one way to teach a woman without respect for her man a lesson. I went and waited at home. She came home late there's no way she was at the therapist all that time. I just saw red when she opened the door. She even had the nerve to hum a song. I don't remember hitting her all I remember is seeing her on the floor. I think her cheek was bleeding. Damn I hate what she makes me do! She even had the nerve to bring leftovers of the food another man bought for her. That was expensive looking food the kind rich people eat at these fancy parties of theirs so it couldn't come from Sindi she can't afford such had it been a pie yes but fancy finger food no! I returned to the tavern to calm down. I sat alone and decided to go home after a while. I want to ask Ntombi myself where she has been almost all day. I got into my car and drove off. I was still a bit drunk but I'm can't drive. When I arrived home I found the house completely empty. I at first feared that she went to the police but remembered that Ntombi is a weak woman she won't dare go. I decided to go look for her at Sindi's home. I didn't see her father's car in their garage so he must be gone. I went and knocked like a madman. Sindi: "You break that door you pay for it!" she shouted and opened the door. I could see that she was not expecting to see me. I've never been in their yard before. Me: "Where the hell is she?" I shouted while looking behind her hoping to see Ntombi. Sindi: "Tata!" she shouted loudly. Me: "Hey! I know he isn't home. I don't want trouble. Just give me what's mine" I shouted while in his face. She backed down clearly a bit rattled. Sindi: "Give you what's yours? Are we still talking about a human being with rights here or a piece of meat? Hey scum Ntombi is not "what's yours" she's her own woman. She is not here I don't know where she is and even if I did I'd rather die than tell you" she said and looked at me with a cold stare. Me: "Well that can be arra... " Sindi: "Tata! Tata!... " she shouted loudly and that's when I noticed car lights flashing behind me. Her father came out of the car flying. I shoved Sindi aside and went into the house hoping to find Ntombi. I didn't make it far when I felt her father hit me on the back with something. I lost my balance a bit. I turned to try and fight him but he hit me over and over again. Sindi was kicking my ribs helping her father to defeat me. Their white tiles were now red with my blood they weren't lying about him giving a real beating to those who hurt his loved ones but I didn't do that. All I want is my girlfriend and I'll go. Sindi's father dragged me outside and Sindi shouted for everyone to hear how I tried to kill her. People in my township believe in mob justice necklacing being their favourite. A few men came with home weapons from sticks to knives and I saw one with a tyre and patrol. I knew that if I didn't get out fast I'd die a painful death. Mr Koni: "I'm sure Ntombi will thank her neighbors for getting rid of an abusive drunk like you. Its men like you who put shame on us. I was angry when I heard what Ntombi said you did to her but to dare touch my child? My child?! Men let's get rid of this pest. He also sells your children drugs! Random Man: "Let the dog die already!" shouted the man while lifting a huge rock. I knew its to crush my head. Why are people so cruel? A man can't go look for his woman now? In the rural areas they would have handed Ntombi over and told her to go sort things out with her man. Clearly these men are uncultured. I got beaten more and each new blow was more painful than the last one. I felt someone put a tyre over my head and around my body. It was in that moment that I accepted death. The petrol got poured over me and I wept. I wept like a boy. It took me back to when I would cry when my father hit my mother. I didn't choose to be a bad person. Life has just never been kind to me. I have family back in the Eastern Cape but since I've been with Ntombi I can't visit because I don't want to leave Ntombi alone and don't want to take her to the rural areas because she might want to stay. Two very loud banging sounds brought me back to reality. There was suddenly chaos and perfect were running in all directions. I thought someone had decided to kill me fast and if that's the case I'll be grateful to that person. Gunshot is better than burning to death. I felt my body get weaker by the second. If I come out of this alive
It's serve u right....... why didn't u die?????
karma... He should have died...he deserve every little thing that coming to him I c he haven't learn his lesson yet
Still blaming someone else for his misfortune. I hope someone makes him a bitch and does to him what he did to Ntombi. Uyangibhowa mani uBonga
Thank you, yoh
Bonga is stupid yazi. He is failing to realise that he is just like his father.
