Time passed and my relationship with Zwe only got stronger it's been a few months now since we've been dating but it's like we have been dating for years. School was also going well I wasn't falling behind on anything..
Today my Mom decided that we should invite Zwe over for Dinner together with his family. She has seen how things are serious between us I'm actually the one who suggested that we should invite them over for dinner..
Ma: Everything is ready
Me: He texted that they on their way
Ma: Are you nervous?
Me: Not entirely I'm happy about this
Ma: Well then that's good
Zwe showed up after 5min he was with his Sister only. We welcomed them in. This is the first time that me and his sister are going to say two words to each other we never really spoken. We've always passed each other on the streets without even greeting..
Zwe: Thank you very much for welcoming us into your home
Ma: You welcome
He was dressed nice not expensive but really nice. I think he has started buying himself clothes and that's good..
Zwe: This is my Sister Minnie
Ma: Welcome Minnie
Minnie: Thank you
We all sat down at the dinning table..
Ma: I hope you guys will enjoy our food
Zwe: I'm sure we will
Ma: I thought your Mother was going to join us
Zwe and Minnie looked at each other..
Zwe: She couldn't make it I'm sorry
Ma: It's okay.. Maybe next time
Minnie: There won't be a next time
Minnie: My Mom is a drunk and she doesn't care about us or what goes on in our lives she calls me a whore and he calls him useless
I didn't expect that things got awkward very quickly..
Zwe: That was unnecessary
Minnie: She has to know how broken our family is and what she's getting herself into
It was quiet for a few seconds..
Ma: I think we should start eating before the food gets cold
Me: That's a good idea
We all started eating. The next conversation just circled around general things Minnie seemed uninterested about everything...
Ma: Wow Zwe that's good I've always known that you smart
He was just telling my mother about his invention..
Ma: Have you started looking for sponsors?
Zwe: Not yet
Ma: You should start
Zwe: I don't even know where to start
Ma: Do research don't just sit on such brilliant ideas
My Mom and Zwe seemed to be clicking very well Minnie had gone to the kitchen and she was taking long..
Me: I'm going to check on Minnie I'll be right back
I left them as they kept on talking and I went to the kitchen Minnie was just standing there..
She looked at me..
Me: Ukahle? (are you okay)
Her: What is it that you want from my Brother?
Me: I'm sorry?
Her: Come on Ntando are you after the money that he is making at the car wash?
Me: Of course not
Her: Then what is it?
I kept quiet...
Her: Is it because of his "invention" that when he makes it you will cash in on it?
Me: I love your Brother
Her: I don't believe that! A girl like you will never fall for a guy like him
Me: I'm sensing you don't like me?
Her: I don't like you at all.. Me and my family we don't bother anyone I don't know why you and yours are bothering us!
With that being said she walked back to the living room....
From thereon I didn't enjoy dinner I've never had someone dislike me and say it to my face. What's there not to like about me? I'm a very nice person.. My mom gave them some scones and some of the food that was left she said it was a lot and we won't finish. I walked them out to the gate..
Minnie: Nice.. Now we a charity case
She looked at us..
Her: You'll find me at home
She looked at me...
Her: Thank you your highness for the dinner
She then walked away..
Me: Your sister hates me
Him: I hate his boyfriends too
Me: She thinks I'm gold digging you
Him: She's just trying to be protective siblings to that a lot
Me: I supposed so
Him: Don't let her get to you
Me: I'll try not too
He kissed me..
Him: Goodnight and thank you for the dinner
Me: You welcome
Him: I love you Ntando
Me: I love you too
Him: I should get going it's late
I watched him leave and then I walked back to the house.. My mom was washing dishes
Me: I'll help
Ma: It's okay you can go and rest
Ma: Are you okay? I've seen that halfway through the dinner you were distracted
Me: It's Minnie
She wiped her hands..
Her: What about her?
Me: She doesn't like me she thinks I'm gold digging
Her: Well their family has always been disliked by everyone and they were never treated nice I think she's just uncomfortable that someone is kind to them
Me: I guess so
Her: You need to prepare yourself because Zwe and his family are looked down upon by this whole hood I am thinking they not a very close family are you ready to take all of that in?
Me: I love Zwe and I want his family to like me I really don't care about what other people say
Her: Then that's good.. I'm really proud of you you growing up
Me: Thank you Ma (Smiling)
When we got home I decided to have a word with Minnie...
Me: That was uncalled for
Her: It was called for
Me: Ntando is a nice girl
Her: Why would Ntando fall for you? Have you ever thought about that?
Me: What do you mean?
Her: Look at us and then look at them. Ntando is not the type to fall for someone like you. She's always been full of herself
Me: People judge her without even knowing her she's a very nice girl
My mom walked in I don't think she ever went out today..
Ma: Nikuthathephi ukudla? (Where did you get the food from)
Minnie: Intombi ka Zwe (from Zwe's girlfriend)
Ma: Yakuphi? (from where)
Ma: Leya ntombazana yakwa Mnguni? (That girl from the Mnguni family)
Minnie: Yena kanye
Ma: How did you get such a girl?
Me: I'm going to my bedroom
Ma: uNtando uyafunda futhi unekusasa elihle wenzani nawe? (Ntando is in varsity she has a bright future what is she doing with you)
Her: Uboneni? (What did she see)
Me: I don't know maybe she sees potential in me something that you don't see
Ma: usebenza e Car wash (You work at a car wash)
Minnie: uZwe has a vision Ma about where he wants to be.. I saw how Ntando and her Mom were taken by him
Minnie: He designed a phone he just needs funding
My mom laughed..
Ma: Usese lapho? (You still at that)
I didn't say anything..
Ma: You need to get a real job because that thing of yours is not going anywhere
Me: I expected that from you
Ma: You want me to lie? Those are big dreams for important people Zwe awuyeke umsangano (Stop with your madness)
Me: Good night Minnie
Ma: Wangeza uMtho wafa (I don't know why my son died)
Ma: Mtho was everything la ekhaya he was working he was supporting us.. Angazi why kungafanga uZwe.. He's useless
I've let her get away with that for far too long now..
Me: Then why didn't you abort me?
Her: I should've yazi!
Me: I wish you did it would've saved me from having a humiliating alcoholic Mother!!
Minnie: Ngiyanicela (Please)
Ma: Uthini? (What are you saying)
Me: Have you asked yourself who cleans after you when you have messed up on yourself? We an embarrassment in this hood because of you! I don't know why you don't clean up your act and actually be the Mother that we need
Her: Yeey wena izintanga zakho ziyasebenza banezindlu zabo bane zimoto wena unani? Usahleli kwa Mawakho (Your peers are working they have houses they driving nice cars and you still staying in your mom's house)
Ma: Thula wena!! (Shut up)
Me: Maybe I should move out how about that?
Ma: Good idea! Hamba! Futhi ngathi ungafa la uyakhona (I wish you die wherever you go)
I walked straight to my room and she followed me..
Ma: You will never amount to anything in life how long as it been since you finished school? Still you doing nothing with your life! All that you do is to make yourself the man of this house! Hamba Zwe ungasabuyi (Leave Zwe and don't ever come back)
I got to my room and started packing my things I'm done with this shit..
Zwe didn't call me last night nor did he text me. All my messages on whatsapp to him it was just one tick. I thought the dinner went well last night why is he ghosting me all of a sudden??
After packing up and leaving I went to Sjava he told me that I can stay with him until I get myself a room to rent. I was still upset at what my Mother said to me last night now I don't mind her calling me useless because it's not the first time but for her to always compare me to my dead brother now that's something else. I try my outmost best to provide at home but she doesn't see that. Nothing I do is ever good enough for her..
I took my book and looked at it I've been working on this for a long time now and it hasn't even taken off. Maybe it's true these are just big dreams for someone like me. I started tearing every page it's time now to accept reality than to live in dream land..
To be continued
Don't give up Zwe your girl believes in you and your mother must count on shut you down she is even stealing your money so focus brother Minnie don't be jealous go to school you will get your chance in life
Love is good am happy for you guys and am happy the siblings had a moment for them self
Some mothers , how can you destroy your child like that yazi words said can never be unsaid, words can destroy some1,u Zwe uyazama shame kodwa umawakhe akakuboni konke lokho ulibalwa utshwala nje
you should have thrown back and asked her about her peers nxa as if shes doing any better than people her age. My God Zwe will be successful otlo swaba mme o.
It's so sad that whilst the boy is doing everything for his mom...all she is doing is to break him n make him feel unworthy. Boy just hang in there
Zwe's mom is ungrateful shame
Poor Zwe doesn't deserve this treatment,from his mother.Parents damage their children saying all this bs 😭
Zwe's mother s so sick la ekhanda
We definitely killing our kids ignorantly, mxm
Yoh y mara 😭😭 she should just expect her children they way they are, I think nthando really love zwe
Hay uyadika loMama tshin😬
Zwe don't let your mother destroy your dreams please one day you will find finding.
So disheartening to have such a mother
It pains me that Zwe is doubting himself and giving up on dream because of his mum ai marnn
Something tells me that Zwe is a duplicate of his dad,he looks exactly like him so every time his mother sees him,its like he is his dad hence the mean treatment, she is blaming him for his father's faults its so painful maan
Tjoo hayi lo mama Haysuka man sies.. How can someone say such things to their kids nxaa
I know the pain zwe is feeling 😭😭😭
Its true when they say words can break or a make a person.i hope your mom lives long to see you succeed Zwe and sallow her words. shame this is sad
Maybe Zwe's mother will wake up and get her act together now that Zwe is gone he won't be cleaning after her
I worry about how Ntando is too materialistic hey... for her a man must provide but doesn't mention other traits which are important that make up a man....and what is she offering vele in this relationship besides her degree.
Zwe's mother is so useless and busy comparing him with others what about her? I'm sure she was providing the 🍑only in her failed marriage
Broken like am really broken 😭💔💔...Ngumama onjani lona
Zwe you shouldn't have done that😭😭😭😭
