I must admit that I enjoyed my weekend at home with Zwe. I enjoyed how we reconnected and reminded of what we once shared. I enjoyed being alive again in a relationship don't get me wrong Makhubalo is a very good man but maybe our relationship was just based on the fact that I needed someone at that moment. I needed someone to help me through my pain and he was there. He was there doing it all and I am grateful. One thing about the heart is that it is very stupid it doesn't care what happened before. If the love is still there it will lead you straight to that person over and over again until it gets tired. I didn't mean for things to happen this way I didn't mean to hurt him.
That Monday morning we had a staff meeting it was very awkward for me especially after what happened between Makhubalo and I. He was addressing us and kept on looking at me here and there my eyes would wonder around trying to not keep a lengthy eye contact. He seemed fine he looked fine. I hope this won't put a strain on our working relationship. He asked me to come to his office as everyone either made tea or went about their business..
I sat down..
Him: Good morning
Me: Good morning
Him: How are you?
Me: I'm good and you?
Him: I'm well
Me: I would like to apolo-
Him: I want you to resign
Him: I will give you a good reference and letter of recommendation
Me: I don't understand
Him: I think it's the least you can do for me after what you did
Me: Resigning that's a bit extreme
Him: I know and I'm sorry but I need you to resign
Me: I won't resign
He put his hands deep inside his pockets..
Him: If you don't I'm going to make sure that you get dismissed. I have friends in high places and you will never get a job in teaching ever again!
Me: That's not fair
Him: Exactly what you also did to me that's not fair
He shook his head..
Him: This boy is going to hurt you something that you won't understand and I don't wanna be there to pick up the pieces again and restore your sanity only to have you back in his arms when you okay. Have you forgotten what he put you through? How you almost died and how your life was almost ruined? I care deeply for you and I don't wanna witness that again.. If you ever felt something for me please resign. It's the last thing you can consider doing for me especially after what you've put me through. You have only 1 week to think about it
I enjoy work now better than before. Being in charge is very good especially considering the fact that I've always wanted to run a ship of my own this is the perfect time to do so..
Driver: Sir you've called for me
Me: Yes I need you to run a quick errand for me
Him: I'm listening
Me: You will pass by at this shop they will give you a basket of chocolates and a red rose I need you to deliver the basket at this school to this Person
I passed him the piece of paper..
Him: I know that you have a delivery already but please do this favour for me
Him: It won't be a problem Sir
Me: Thank you
Just as he walked out Phumla walked in.
She smiled at him..
Her: Good morning Boss
I smiled at her too..
Me: Good morning
She walked in and sat down..
Her: Wow! Look at you
Me: Look at me indeed
Her: Who would've thought?
We both laughed..
Her: You had it coming though you always had big dreams
Me: What can I say?
Her: Ya.. This is really nice
Me: How are you holding up?
Her: I'm good can't complain.. Met this wonderful man I'm in a better place
Me: I'm glad
Her: I see you and Ntando are back together
Me: Yes we are
Her: I'm glad
Me: All thanks to you
Her: I don't understand
Me: You made me realize that I almost lost a diamond busy chasing the thrill. Honestly speaking if it wasn't for you I wouldn't have realized how important she was to me
Her: Perfect love story
Her: I'm proud of you.. You really doing good for yourself
Me: Thank you
Her: Let me go and greet the crew
Me: Not at all go ahead
She stood up and walked out..
Makhubalo was right after everything that I've done to him. I shouldn't expect him to continue working with me it'll be too much pain for him. I drafted the letter right away in his office when I was done. I handed it back to him..
Him: Thank you
Me: Again I'm truly sorry.. I didn't mean for this to happen
Him: It's okay.. I understand you can go back to work
I got up and walked out I saw Nkati in the staff room I made my way in..
Her: Hey Roomy
I sat down..
Her: You okay?
Me: I resigned
I shook my head..
Me: He made me to resign
Me: I'm back with Zwe
Her: Ohw I see but what does that have to do with you resigning?
I looked at her..
Her: Ohw he can't work with you anymore
Her: This is difficult but still it's not right he shouldn't have made you to resign
Me: Ahh what can we say I truly understand where he is coming from
Her: Ya this is difficult
Me: I will move out month end I'm sorry
Her: Don't even mention it I totally understand
Me: I will move back home and I would like it if we still keep our friendship. I really value you as a friend
Her: Don't worry we still going to be friends
Me: Thank you (smiling)
I didn't stay for long my former colleagues had to go back to work. It was good being back here and seeing everyone honestly speaking they made me to miss this place.
It was good seeing Zwe again and I'm glad that he was making it he has always been focused and I appreciate that about him.
I went back to my place and Rodney showed up. He didn't look good..
Him: Did you talk to my fiancé?
Me: She called me when I was at the hotel
Him: And what did you say?
Me: She asked me if we seeing each other
Him: What did you say?
Me: I said yes
He looked at me and then cleared everything from the counter..
Him: She fucken canceled the wedding!!
Him: Why did you say that? Couldn't you deny?
Me: How could I deny when she had my number? I don't even know where she got it from
He put both his hands on the counter..
Him: We can't do this.. We can't do this anymore
He looked at me..
Him: I'm not going to lose her I need to make her see that she is important to me.. I can't do this with you anymore I'm sorry
Me: Rodney don't do this
Him: She is my fiancé and soon to be wife you nothing! You don't mean that much to me I can't lose her so I need you to move out! By month end you should be gone I'm sorry Phumla
This was not happening to me..
I called Zwe after receiving that basket of chocolates..
Me: I got the chocolates
Him: I'm glad
Me: Thank you
Him: Don't mention it
Me: Are you busy?
Him: For you.. Not at all
Me: I resigned
Me: I was dating the principal so after breaking up with him he forced me to resign
Him: That is very wrong
Me: It's fine.. It's the least I could do for him after everything that I've put him through
Him: I understand
Me: I'll get another job plus it's not like I'm broke broke broke. Had some money saved up
Him: You'll be moving back home?
Him: Everything is going to be well sweetheart I promise
Me: Let me not keep you talk later
Him: Okay I love you soo much baby
Me: I love you too
I hope I'm not making the biggest mistake of my life by choosing Zwe..I just lost a good job bec of our relationship this should be a better start for us. Better than what we had previously
To be continued
Mr Principal is gonna make sure Ntando struggles to get a job so that it can strain her relationship with Zwe clearly. 🤔
