It was Friday night around 10pm. We got to the club and Sbu bought the first round of drinks my nigga and I drank expensive alcohol. I’m talking Cîroc Hennessy Belvedere Jameson and all those other stuff but I wasn’t planning on getting super hammered so I settled for just Cîroc. Sbu and this chick were busy dancing and having fun I regretted coming to this place. This chick came to join me; she was beautiful even prettier than the Ashley girl. She was a dark beauty with expensive weave on wearing black leather shorts and a grey tank top vest with silver heels.
Her: You not from around here?
Me: that obvious?
Her: I perform here every Thursday to Sunday
Me: don’t you lose your voice?
Her: If I drink water with honey and lemon I survive
Me: where are my manners. I'm Sandiso Langa
Her: I'm Mbalentle khumalo. So why are you here alone? Where's your girlfriend?
Me: What makes you think I have one?
Her: Because a prettyboi is never single
Me: so you think I’m pretty?
I gave a cocky smile and she blushed. Feels like high school all over again. A few pickup lines and suddenly she’s eating out of the palm of my hands. She was adorable and all but I love my girlfriend.
Me: where's your boyfriend?
Her: what makes you think I have one?
Me: Because a pretty girl is never single
Her: hahaha now you using my words against me
Me: hahaha what can I say...
Her: well I don’t have one we broke up last month
Me: too much info for someone you just met
Her: you seem trustworthy enough
Me: thanks for the compliment... What can I get you?
Her: nothing I drink after I’m done performing
Me: mmmh. What are you going to sing for us today?
Her: stick around and you'll find out
Her: where’s your girlfriend?
Her: Long distance... Mh
Me: what’s that supposed to mean?
Her: I don’t know about you but I don’t trust easily. My ex-boyfriend and I broke up because of that
Me: why don’t you trust easily?
Sometimes it’s not that you interested in knowing about the person but you just got to play nice and act like you interested
Her: my heart's been broken too many times
Me: that’s why we don’t commit to one
Her: and your girlfriend?
Me: she's my first serious one
Her: she's a lucky one
Me: I’m the lucky one
Some came to whisper in her ear and then he left.
Her: I have to go get ready
Me: and your number?
Her: stick around and you might get more than just a number
Me: I like you already
she blushed and she left. Sbu and Ash came to join me and Mbali was called to stage. She sang so beautifully; her voice was of an angel. with a voice like that she was going places I swear. When she was done she came back to join us. Turns out she and Ash were Flatmates. When she was done performing she came to join us and we started drinking and having lots of fun. Around 3am we went back to the flat I was driving I was now sober but not as a judge. Life in JHB was going to be fun I tell you. The following morning I woke up around 12 and took a cold shower it was refreshing AF. Sbu was still sleeping so I decided to order us pizza I tried calling Mahle but her phone would ring and go straight to voicemail. Was she still mad at me? But I didn’t give up n calling her. When the pizza came I went to wake Sbu up so we could eat. The rest of the day we went grocery shopping with Ash she was showing us around Jozi.
//Me: hey Muhle
Her: hey you
Me: I know I said I would call except last night it got too lit and I couldn’t call you babe. I was beyond drunk
Her: its ok really
Me: so you not mad?
Her: why would I be?
Me: I don’t know really
Her: so how was last night?
Me: it was great. Taboo was awesome except I miss you so much
Her: I’m glad you enjoyed. So what did you guys do today?
Me: sight-seeing and grocery shopping. You?
Her: did some shopping and I miss you too
Me: let’s see what you bought. I’m sure you bought the whole of Gateway
Her: geez I’m not that much of a shopaholic hawu
Me: if you say so miss
Her: babe I’m tired I’m even in bed
Me: so you wanna sleep?
Her: if you don’t mind. I promise I’ll make it up to you
Me: its ok you can sleep my love
Her: I love you
Me: I love you more//
I went to Sbu's room and he had some company. Ash
Him: knock much?
Me: I didn’t know you had company. Hi Ash
Her: Hey Sands
Him: what up?
Me: never mind dude
I went to my room and figured lemme sleep because I knew my nigga was gonna get some tonight. I took sleeping pills even incase that Ash chick is a screamer in bed. The following day I found Ash in the kitchen wearing Sbu's tee.
Her: hey. I’m making breakfast can I count you in?
Me: yeah sure
This girl was S-E-X-Y AF*. she had legs for days yoh
Me: nice legs
Me: where's Sbu?
Her: I think he's in the shower
Me: oh cool.
I sat on top of the counter while chatting with Sisa on WhatsApp. Turns out she's in JHB too and she stays in Braam we were talking about going out for lunch and stuff. She was going to study at some drama and arts school. Sbu came to join us in the kitchen and I left them there to shower. When I came back they weren’t in the kitchen but I heard some giggles coming from his room and I found a plate covered with another plate on top of the counter I took it and went to eat in my room. Entle called me
Me: hey Entle
Her: you sound shocked
Me: you got me
Her: what are you up to? I’m bored and my roomie didn’t come home last night
Me: she's here with Sbu. What did you have in mind?
Her: let’s go ice skating in Manlyn Park
Me: that’s in Pretoria
Me: let’s go bowling instead
Her: fine. Come fetch me when you done
Me: you got it. //
I got dressed in navy skinny jeans white tank top and red Jays with a navy NY cap. When I was done I took my wallet phone and keys and headed to her flat. She was wearing red bum shorts white vest and Navy cap and navy Jays.
Me: you so fake
Her: no you copied me
Me: then go change
Her: NO ways
Me: fine whatever. You done?
Her: obviously. Let’s go
Me: you look good
Her: thanks prettyboi
We drove off to Rosebank Bowling club all eyes were on us it was creepy really. We went to get shoes the chick there said we made a cute couple and we didn’t argue with her we just said thanks. We took lots of pictures; she was terrible at bowling shame. I taught her how to play.
She took out her laptop and modem and set things up while I texted the girls on WhatsApp to set up their stuff and soon we were good to go.
//Us (Aya & I): hey lovers
Karen: hey lovey’s
Me: Siya when are you coming here?
Siya: tomorrow babies chill.
Aya: I miss you guys
Alex: you just saw us today babe
Kay: I miss ya’ll too. Monday I’m going Cape Town
Me: that’s exciting. Cape Town is beautiful
Alex: Guys I got a bursary to study medicine at Unitra.
We all screamed.
Me: didn’t we tell you to chill everything is gonna work out
Her: you did and thanks guys. Thanks for having my back?
she was teary
Aya: hey don’t cry.
Kay: yeah don’t cry. That’s what sisters are for. Now you can get that Degree and be my personal GP
Alex: I won’t disappoint you guys and that’s a promise
Siya: guys quit it you gonna make me cry.
Me: me too let’s talk about something fun
Aya: like you meeting a “white HOT jerk” (she drew inverted commas)
Siya: what about Sands?
Me: like she said that guy was a jerk plus I love my Sandiso. I wouldn’t cheat on him even if Chris Brown asked me out
I’m a huge fan of Breezy
Alex: ooooh…. Hahaha I’m glad to hear that because Sands is mad about you.
Me: yeah I know he does
We continued chatting til 2am. //
It was now Saturday
Mom came to wake us up.
Bomi: girls wake up
she pulled our blankets off
Me: Bomi mh.m
Her: wake up girls we have a lot to do today!
Bomi: what time did you guys sleep?
I raised 2 fingers up
Bomi: 1 more hour okay?
She mumbled under the blankets. Bomi left our room.
After what was probably an hour or 2 we were woken up again.
Tee: ha.a girls wake up now. We have to leave Durban at 3pm kaloku.
Aya: fine. Chomp lets go shower.
Tee: thank you. Go together I’ll make the bed so long
Me: thank you tee
I said kissing her cheek. We washed. We went to Gateway mall in Umhlanga rocks we shopped for clothes because Varsity thangs! We then went to get groceries and then went to Rocco Mama’s for something to eat by then the time was 1pm. We ate then left at 2 because parents needed to show us where DUT and Howard was so yeah. You must be wondering why I chose UKZN over Wits or UWC. Well because those places are both far from home and I get home sick easily and plus my besties were studying here in Durban so yheeyi. As for Bae he was planning to apply here but at DUT though for IT. we got home and we helped the moms pack up and leave. We bid farewell to our ladies and went inside. We were renting a 3-bedroom flat in ELLAN VANNIN. When we got inside I went in to my room and decided to call Oldie.
//Me: Hey Oldie
Him: hey youngie long time
Me: only because you decided to dump my little ass
Him: come on Phelo I wouldn’t dare do that to you. How’s Durban?
Me: it’s not my first time here you know
Him: but it is your first studying there thou
Me: good point. It’s a beautiful place mahn I think I’m gonna like it here
Him: better behave there chomp
Me: don’t I always. Anyway how’s the Cape? You must be excited Kay is coming that side huh
Him: yeah I can’t wait. I’m even doing a count down
Me: explains your status. Alu please I beg you don’t hu-
Him: I told you to trust me. Have I hurt her in anyway?
Me: no bu…
Him: no buts. I’ll take care of Karen. I love that girl lil sis more than I’ve loved before.
Me: I hope so.
Him: chill… youngie I got to go Bae’s calling

Him: hay wena mahn I’ll call you later on. Bye baby sis.
Me: fine…. Bye big bro

Me: love you too oldie. Bye//
Aya walked in and threw herself on my bed
Her: I can’t believe we actually here
Me: we made it chomp
Her: although I’m gonna miss home big time. Especially dad
Me: ncooh daddy’s lil girl… I’m sure he misses you already.
Me: yeah what’s up?
Her: thank you.
Her: everything. The whole Lihle thing. I know I was a bitch and I put our friendship on the line (I attempted to speak but she shushed me) Someone else would have gone all ‘I told you so’ but not you friend. Instead you gave me a shoulder and helped me get over him and for that I’m super grateful friend. You truly are a sister and more
Me: aaah come here. I would do it all over again my chomp…. Not that I’m saying date another asshole and put our friendship in the line
We shared a hug. I went to my room. While in my room Sands called before I slept he was apologising for not living up to his promise. Turns out he and Sbu live in the same apartment and last night it got lit and they got super drunk so yeah he couldn’t call me. As for why he was calling now it’s because The whole day today I was too busy to answer my phone. That night we slept early. It was Sunday and we was bored AF it was morning around 10 and the door was open Aya and I were busy making breakfast together when someone knocked on our door. I went to go get it and there stood this cute skinny model looking white girl. she had dark long hair she was just pretty mahn and she seemed bubbly.
Her: Morning Neighbour I’m Jennifer O’Connor but you can call me Jen and I live in flat 15
Me: morning I’m Amahle and that’s Aya
pointing at Aya who was making eggs
Aya: hey nice to meet you Jen
Me: please come in
Her: no thanks I just came over to invite you to come with us to North beach. I’m sure you guys don’t have someone to show you around
I looked at Aya who nodded
Me: uhhm ok sure. What time?
and like that she left. I was definitely going to love her. She seemed carefree and she just gave me life… I know I don’t know her yet but she seems fun and she’s pretty and adorable
Me: she seems bubbly
Aya: she seems like trouble
Me: she kind of reminds me of Karen
Aya: yeah I know right. I miss that tiny one
We continued with breakfast. We ate I washed the dishes and then we went to prepare for North beach.
