CHARTER 4

- 29 MARCH 2003 (SATURDAY AFTERNOON)
- AT NOMALANGA'S HOUSE -
- BONITA -

The car arrived at a nice big house. I guess this is were the orphanage is.

I smiled as I looked outside the car window. the green grass the trees surrounding the place it was so green. it smelled great too.

She parked the car and looked at me.

Her: this is where I stay welcome home. (smiles)
Me (sign language): It looks beautiful.
Her: I know. (smile) let me show you inside.

I nodded as I smiled and she got out of the car as I struggled to get the safety belt off.

She came to my side and helped me out.

I smiled and got out while she closed the door and lead me to the entrance of the house.

I looked around as we walked to the door.

she opened the door and we walked in.

The house was beautiful but I was suddenly feeling wired. 

Normally a warm house would give warmth to a visitor but I felt cold. I tried to focus to see if I could force myself to see anything but I couldn't. 

Her: are you okay?

I looked at her.

Me (sign language): this house is really big.
Her: it is.. (smile) I hope you like it.
Me (sign language): I do. (smiles) can I ask is this were the other children are?
Her: Oh no.. this is my personal house the orphanage is not here. 

I nodded in understanding as I continued looking around.

Her: I thought maybe I should spend some time with you before I take you there you know. to you know you better.

I nodded again with a smile on my face. 

Her: so you don't mind staying with me for a few days before heading to the orphanage? I just want to know you so that I am able to register you and to school.
Me (sign language): I always wanted to go to school. 
Her: Great! (smile) let me continue showing you around.

we walked to other parts of the house. Its not massive just a big comfortable house.

" its been long since I delivered some fresh service its good to be back. " she thought as she smiled and walked out.

- AT THE COMPANY -

Shaun was in his office busy with his work when he got a call from Mr Mtolo.

Shaun: Mr Mtolo. good news?
Mr Mtolo: of cause seems like you have been waiting for my call?
Shaun: day and night. bless me.
Mr Mtolo: I spoke to the guy. he is willing to help.
Shaun: great. and his price?
Mr Mtolo: its not too expensive as I expected.
Shaun: great! I guess the angels are with me.
Mr Mtolo: seems like it. we will meet at the Mega café on Saturday 10am. is that fine?
Shaun: I am all in. I will meet you there on Saturday.
Mr Mtolo: okay. see you soon.
Shaun: same.

Mr Mtolo hung up and Shaun sighed giving a slight smile.

???: finally found a date?

he looked at the door and it was Nelisiwe his PA.

Shaun: how will I get a date when I am already married?
Nelisiwe: married? with who and why wasn't I invited to the wedding.
Shaun: ohhhhhhhh I see you have jokes. 
Nelisiwe: you started.

Shaun took his pen and threw it to Nelisiwe. 

Nelisiwe laughed.

- AT THE NDAMASE'S -

Mr Ndamase: I don't care how much it will cost me. I have to find that girl as soon as possible.
???: ok Mr Ndamase I will do my best.
Mr Ndamase: good. I have sent the picture of her on WhatsApp.
???: okay. I will look at it and start my search. I will be back with an update in no time.
Mr Ndamase: I heard you are the best in business don't disappoint me.
???: I will do my best sir.
Mr Ndamase: okay. do your best.

he agreed and hung up.

Mr Ndamase sighed and went to sit near his daughter who was sitting on the couch watching TV.

Mr Ndamase: don't worry Melissa we will find her. and she will regret ever pulling that stunt with us. she took a wrong turn and she will pay for this.

Melissa didn't say anything. she just fixed her eyes on the TV.

one might say they are worried and miss their lost daughter or sister but that's not the case. 

she may be the Gold/ Ticket to their goal of attending the Collins family but after her task to deliver that baby she will be thrown like a used bag of teabag. Her value in that family is temporary.
