I wake up and I'm on my bed mom is sitting beside me lost in deep thoughts or so it seems. I try to sit up but I have no strength at all
"Hey. Mom said you'd wake up weak." She says helping me sit up with a pillow supporting my back "Here drink this its supposed to make you feel better" she says handing me a glass with water that has green leaves
I shoot her a look and shake my painful head "I rather die!"
She chuckles "glad you back! But honey you have to drink it" she says
"Where's Ntando? Is he Ok?" I ask with panic
She smiles and nods "he's fine baby he's sleeping" she says
"Mom are you sure?" I ask with my eyes popped out I'm worried
She nods "yes now drink!"
I smell it and it smells disgusting how am I supposed to drink it?
I pinch my nose and gulp it down at one go and then hand mom the glass "I hate you" I manage to say after swallowing it
She giggles "I love you too" she says pecking my nose
"Is she Ok?" Dad asks walking in
"Yes she's Ok honey" mom responds
He sits next to mom "Lindelwa is your great grandmother my grandmother who got locked up in the land of the dead by your grandmother Nelly. Lindelwa is an evil person baby. When she was alive she uhhm" he sighs and runs his hands on his face in frustration "she was working with Monalisa Sibu's mother. She managed to turn Monalisa evil by using her curse against her in which at first she tried to have me kill your mother during her first year in university" I clasped my mouth "seeing that her plan failed she had your mother kidnapped and used Mona as Sweet Lip's replacement so that we wouldn't notice her absence" mom places her hand on dad's thigh "during that period your mother was missing I did a lot of things I'm not proud of"
"None of which you did on purpose" mom cuts him short I look at them both and I can tell that there's something they not telling me
"Before your mother returned I was turned into a hybrid and Mona into a vampire. Your grandmother cast Lindelwa into the land of the dead and since then she was never heard off or spoken off until you dreamed of her" he says looking down
"Why me? What does she want from me?" I ask
Mom sighs "you are our first born which makes you stronger than any of your siblings. You are a daughter of a doppelganger witch and a hybrid which makes you the first of your kind" I clasp my mouth in shock "that puts a target on your back." She places her hand on my knee and rubs it "Lindelwa wanted me to carry you so that she could sacrifice you to the leader of the land of where she is which in turn would make her stronger than any witch to ever live. She wasn't just going to sacrifice you but I was also supposed to die giving birth to you so that your father would transition into a hybrid" she says
When she's on her feet she pulls me up and we both kneel down to pray
