A FEW YEARS LATER


Aphelele Ngcobo


I was cooking up a storm in our two plate stove in the kitchen. Nothing much just yellow rice and chicken... A few pieces Tebogo came with last night. After finishing my matric I decided to take a gap year which turned out to be two years since I wasn't interested in school the following year. But this year am going back to school collage to be precise. MaFuze has been on my throat ever sincetelling me that my brother Tebogo brings income whilst with only a matric certificate while am staying at home. I was a Commerce student or still is and I wanna do Public Management since it just takes two years. My mother walks in as I close the pot.


Mom:"So when are you gonna get back to school young lady?"

Me:"Relax I'll be out of your face in two months time Fazi" It's April So I'll go to school on the second semester.

Mom:"Good where is Tebogo?"

Me:"I don't know that good of a nothing son of yours"

Mom:"Don't start Thembeka am not in the mood". I just zip it cause I know when she calls me by my second name am screwed. She proceeds to her bedroom while I continue cooking.

I glance at the pregnancy test one more time with tears streaming down my cheeks. I can't be pregnant. Not again. This is the fourth time. I wipe my tears with the back of my hand and stand up from the toilet seat and to the basin to wash my hands. I will have to abort with the kind of work that I do having a baby is the last thing on my mind.


Pearl:"Tee are you done? Your client is waiting for you outside. You've been in there for too long" I quicky compose myself and fix my make up. Once I get out of the bathroom I find Pearl on my bed preparing for the night. I also get out of my nightdress and settle for a sexy red and black lingerie. Well the thing is am a prostitute. Pearl says we are sex workers but I know she's tryna make our job look good. Bakkie (our boss) arranges clients for us then they tell us where we should go since they can't come to us. After rendering our services we then get back to the house where we live in with the other girls. I wasn't kidnapped or abducted or even forced to be a prostitute but I did it out of free will. But that's the story for another day. A knock on the door comes through. Pearl takes the rest of her things and rushes to the doortelling me that my brother Tebogo brings income whilst with only a matric certificate while am staying at home. I was a Commerce student or still is and I wanna do Public Management since it just takes two years. My mother walks in as I close the pot.

Me:"Hey lover boy ready for a good time?"

Him:"I was born ready I heard you were a freak I paid good cash for this night"

Me:"Yeah nigga am freak bitch"


He comes closer taking off his clothes on by one and finally arrives to me. I quickly take off his underwear and give him a BJ.....
