CONTINUATION OF 4

- AT THE MALL -


We were in the ####### restaurant waiting for our order. 


Me: you don't  like talking?

Mr Khoza: what would I talk about?

Me: anything.

Mr Khoza: like?

Me: mhm (thinking) ok lets start by telling each other what we love. 


our order arrived.


Me: thank you.


the waiter smiled and walked away.


Me: do you want to start?

Mr Khoza: aren't we supposed to eat in silence first?

Me: mxm... you are so boring.


he didn't  say anything he just started eating.


I couldn't  use the fork and knife so I just used the fork to eat other things and attempted to grab my steak with my fingers.


Mr Khoza: what are you doing?

Me: eating.

Mr Khoza: don't  tell me you are thinking of eating with your hands.

Me: will I kill someone if I do?

Mr Khoza: we are in public.

Me: I bet everyone eats with their hands.

Mr Khoza: can you not embarrass me.

Me: I am using my 2 fingers.

Mr Khoza: Tiana!


I looked at him as I pulled a sad face. 


I looked at my meat and picked up my fork and knife. 


he looked at me and reached for my plate I looked at him with a questionable look.


he reached out his hand to me. I looked at him


Me: what is it now?

Mr Khoza: bring your things.


I looked at the fork and knife in my hand I handed them to him.


I looked at him as he cut the meat in pieces for me.


I smiled as I looked at him cutting the meat.


after cutting it in small pieces he handed me my plate back and continues having his meal.


Me: thank you.

Mr Khoza: I was only doing it because we are in public. it would be more embarrassing to have you try and cut the meat.


I smiled and took the fork eating my food.


we had a very little conversation while eating he doesn't  talk at all unless to tease me or give me negative feedback. mxm.


we were now having coffee. as always he specifically asked the waiter to add powder milk in his coffee and not liquid me I also asked for the same.


Me: so you are the only child?


he nodded.


Me: what about the guy who was at the house the other day?

Mr Khoza: Nkululeko?

Me: mhm he said you were his brother.

Mr Khoza: you met with him?

Me: mhm.

Mr Khoza: what did he say?


I didn't  want to anger him so I didn't  say anything about his brother's ugly behaviour.


Me: nothing he just greeted me.

Mr Khoza: mhm.

Me: so? isn't  he your brother?

Mr Khoza: his father and my father are brothers.

Me: ohhh.

Mr Khoza: yah but he is very close to me as if he was my brother. he is the only person I trust.

Me: really?

Mr Khoza: yah he did a lot for me even after I got this accident he was there for me.

Me: may I ask what exactly happened for the accident to happen?


he looked down and bit his lower lip. he then looked at me.


Mr Khoza: lets finish our tea and go home I am tired. 


I smiled and nodded. I know the accident is a very sensitive issue so I wont even try to push the topic he will tell me when he is ready to talk.


I raised my cup to have a sip and somehow something caught my attention.


as I looked on my right towards the window I saw Jamal with another girl. I kept my eyes fixed on them as they walked passed the restaurant we were in.


Mr Khoza: (clears throat)


I snapped out of it and looked at Mr Khoza.


Me: huh.. I am sorry.


I took a sip of my coffee. I could feel my heart ache and my tears threatening to come out but I held it in as I didn't  want to show Mr Khoza.


Mr Khoza: we don't  have to finish the coffee we can go home now.

Me: no... its a waste we should finish it. 

Mr Khoza: don't  you need some privacy to nurse your broken heart?


I looked at him with nothing to say.


Me: I am fine. its nothing.

Mrs Khoza: ex?


I looked at him.


do I tell him that I broke up with Jamal because of this marriage? do I tell him that this marriage ended my life and now I am living in sadness and forcing myself to smile and live freely?


do I?


I smiled and looked at him.


Me: nah... he is just someone I know. I was just sad that I wont be able to see my friends again since I am married.

Mr Khoza: ...............


he didn't  say anything

he didn't  say anything he just continued sipping on his coffee.


I also sipped on my tea calming my emotional self down.


- LATER -


We were now back at our house. funny how its now "our" house. Today was fun I enjoyed it well until....... until I saw Jamal.


did he move on already? well why am I asking of cause he should move on because I am married now. of cause he cant wait for me since I am taken now. he is a free man after all


I laid on my bed letting my mind run those thoughts.


tears came down as I laid on my pillow thinking about Jamal.


does this even mean I am cheating? I mean I am married but thinking about another man. is it even the right thing to do?


I wiped my tears and just buried my face in my pillow.


- AT THE KEKANA'S -


Slindile was in the kitchen dishing up.


as she was dishing up Jay walked in.


Jay: hai sisters is Keisha still outside?

Slindile: seems like it. yhooo I have never seen mama so angry to even leave Keisha outside for so long?

Jay: eash do you think she will let her sleep outside?

Slindile: at this rate nam ang'azi.

Jay: shame.

Slindile: now that you are here please help me carry the plates to the living room.

Jay: ok.


they walked to the living room and found Mr and Mrs Kekana watching TV as if Keisha was not outside.


Slindile gave them their plates.


Slindile: mama... Keisha is still.........

Mrs Kekana: manje? do you wish to join her?


Slindile looked down and shook his head.


Keisha was still sitting outside shivering from the cold as she held her phone that was off and her suitcase. 


- AT THE KHOZA'S (NKULULEKO'S BEDROOM) -


Nkululeko was on the phone with her mother.


Nkululeko: Ma don't  worry everything is as planned.

Mom: my son you know that your grandpa loves Zithulele more if we don't  deal with him now you can kiss that company goodbye.

Nkululeko: Zithulele trusts me so it will be easy to destroy him.

Mom: good. I am only looking out for you because once Grandpa passes away or something the Khoza family will turn their backs on you and you will be casted away like nothing even that Zithulele boy will abandon you and not call you his brother again. he only trusts you now because he needs you. we better deal with him now when he is already weak.

Nkululeko: yes mom.
