I drove past Andile’s house and it seemed as if she was there as her car was parked outside. I parked outside her driveway and i went up to her door to know. I knocked for over two minutes and just when i was about to walk back to my car the door opened.
There she stood with a silky black night gown on and her hair in a bun.
Detective Andy: Mr. Shange. Sorry i was not expecting any visitors.
Me: My apologies. I should have called but i figured it wouldn’t be a crime to stop by.
Detective Andy: How did you know where i stay?
Me: I am a man of many talents.
She smiled or blushed. With woman sometimes I can’t never tell.
Andy: Sorry where i my manners come in.
I walked up to her home and judging with the pictures and those candles scent smell i could tell she was a vintage type of a woman.
Andy: Can i get you something to drink?
Me: A beer would be nice.
Andy: I have Sol. Will that be fine.
Me: A beer is a beer.
She giggled as she exited the lounge.
She had pictures of herself with a graduation gown and some pictures with her parents i assumed as they looked like her.
She walked back in with two sealed ice cold bottle of beer. She sat opposite me and handed me a bottle.
Me: Cold and perfect.
Andile:I needed it i just couldn’t down it with no company.
Me: And here i thought wine was for woman.
Andile: I am beer kinda chick.
Me: You wouldn’t tell.
Andile: At all.
I took a sip of my beer and then got down to business as to why exactly i was there.
Me: My PA told me you called.
She looked at the watch on her wall and then back at me.
Andile: Business hours are over.
Me: I didn’t know it was a business call.
Andile: Why else would i call you?
Me: probably for another proper date. Maybe.
As i shrugged my shoulders. She smiled and took a sip of her beer.
Andile: Are you indirectly asking me out on a date?
Me: I wouldn’t call it a date. Just neighbors enjoying each others company.
She blushed and i knew that i am playing the right cards.
Andile: As far i know you are a married man.
Me: As far as i know there is nothing wrong with getting your know your neighbor. Trust me i have no other motives.
She smiled as she took another sip of her beer.
Andile: I don’t see a crime either.
Andile: Definitely Mr. Shange
I took a last sip of my beer.
Andile: Condolences to your wife’s family.
Me: Thank you.
Andile: Shouldn’t you be with her in a time like this?
Me: My wide deals with pain different but she is not the reason why i dropped by.
Andile: Off topic?
Andile: I see.
I woke up.
Me: Thank you for the drink. It is going down pretty well.
Andile: Won’t you wait till you finish it?
Me: I wish i could but time is not on my side.
Andile: I will show you out.
Me: Thank you.
She walked ahead of me while she shook her Ass under the silk gown. Back of her hair was a bit damp and i could tell she was probably taking a shower or bath. I could tell under her silk gown she had nothing on.
She opened the door and moved aside for me to walk out. I stood against her side ways and i could feel her struggle to breath then i walked out.
Me: Thanks again.
She nod her head this time around i turned and i walked to my car. I could feel her eyes piercing through me. I turned as soon as i got to my car.
Andile: Drive safe.
Me: Thank you.
I got inside the car and i drove a few blocks to my place. I parked the car at the garage and i entered house. I switched my phone on as it was still off. I had a few messages from WhatsApp and neither of them interested except for Letho’s.
Letho - Why is your phone off. Yanda is not okay and i am not okay and Owethu is just on another level of crying.
I checked the time she sent it and it was an hour ago.
I had a few voicemails from her from Saturday till today so i just called her.
Me: How is Yanda?
Lee: Sleeping she ate a bit after you left.
Me: That’s all i wanted to know.
She didn’t respond but i could her with her breathing and voice that she was not okay.
I hung up and ran water in the shower while i grabbed a proper beer from the fridge.
I took a shower then i drank my ice cold beer then i called it a night.
