That gold stripe that popped out more when the light was on. It just made that ceiling beautiful. I was looking at that light that came out of an oval clobe. It made that ceiling cover even more beautiful with that gold stripe colour.
I had to zone out I had to I couldn't cry. I was tired of crying I don't think I even had tears to do so.
Him: I poured you water with relaxation salt and oils to help you relax and heal faster. Now go bath I need to go back to school. I will let this week pass because of what you went thru with your aunt I know you loved her and she broke your heart. So take this week as a gift.
I didn't say anything I just went to the bathroom and got inside the bathtub and relaxed my body.
Me: I wish I was a man
I said that to myself. But then I thought about Khutso I mean he ran. He ranaway from home and never looked back. I remember the expression he showed over his hate for his father. At first I thought it was a father and son thing but now I know.
.
A week passed and it was Saturday. Yes my uncle decided to make me his wife. He sexually abused me every night. It wasn't physically painful anymore. He did everything to me it was rough I don't even care anymore because no matter how many times I bath his scent is there. I have been struggling to sleep and having nighmares about him and his groans and him licking me and kissing me everywhere. I would scream and all at first he thought I was being dramatic until he gave me sleeping pills so that I could sleep peacefully. He gives me two after his done pleasuring himself with me.
Just yesterday he told me he will get someone to talk to me because I can't rely on sleeping pills and that I will end up being addicted.
Anyway its in the evening now and my uncle is hosting what he call "Billionaire's club". He gave me this above the knee wight dress and gold wedge.
I was just sitting looking at the mirror when this girl Anabel did my make up. God damn it! she's a loud mouth.
She kept complementing me I don't think I heard half of the things she said. Because my mind was far.
Anabel: there we go done!
Me: uhmmm
I stood up
I couldn't even recognize myself. I looked like a world class hore. But what am I saying every girl in here looked like that.
Anabel: uhmmm usually they say thank you after I am done.
Me: uhmm they do don't they
I left the room and went to the bedroom I use with my uncle. I didn't even enter because I heard people arguing.
I know earesdropping is wrong but hearing and seeing Detective Davina Marshall was just shocking. They couldn't see me because they where looking the other way.
Davina: she's dead isn't she?
Uncle: do you really expect me to answer that?
Davina: your sick you know that? You need help.
Uncle: the only person who is sick here is you Davina. All this years pretending like it did not affect you but it did at least I am embracing it. You can't even look at your own son. At least I raised him.
Davin: Go to hell
Uncle: ooouh I live there

don't they
I left the room and went to the bedroom I use with my uncle. I didn't even enter because I heard people arguing.

Davin: Go to hell
Uncle: ooouh I live there every single day of my life. Our father raping us. Telling me to rape you and if I didn't he would rape me. I will indure all the pain that he gave me just so he doesn't rape you. Davina I protected you until he held a gun to my head and I had no choise but to do it. And you fell pregnant with my son. You own brother's child. You gave birth and ran away from home.
Davina was now crying
Davina: I thought it was his.
Uncle: but I told you I found you and told you. Only to find out that you are this lesbian thing. Look at you. You even killed your own father.
Davina: he had it coming
Uncle: and I helped you cover it up but look at you giving me the ugly eye for what I have become.
Davin: become become? Mluglungisi you are him. No matter how many plastic surgeries you do just so you don't look like him. There is your son he looks just like him.
Uncle: don't compare me to that monster.
Davina: then let her go set her free.
Uncle: what?!
Davina: she didn't do anything to you. She wasn't there Hope is innocent.
Uncle: just like Khutso he is innocent.
Davina: don't bring him into this.
Uncle: why heartfelt memories? It hurts. The knife cuts.... too deep.
Davina: stop it!
Uncle: why? You scared the memories will come back? You always judging me telling me hey "Mlungisi stop being a lil sissy bitch and be better than your father" Well Davina "STOP BEING A LIL SISY BITCH AND ACCEPT YOUR SON"
Davina punched my uncle tears where surrounding her eyes.
Davina: you are nothing to me Mlungisi you are NOTHING.
Uncle: I am still your brother
Davina: half brother.
Uncle: is that why your using your mother's surname?
Davina: at least she did not give me away.
Uncle:UHHMMM that doesn't faze me anymore D you are still my sister. And I am still your brother.
Davina: we will see about that.
She turned and half ran to the door. I swear I wanted to move but my legs where failing me. They where trambling in fear. The things I heard I did not expect. They where just too much to take in. And now I was regretting my trip here.
She opened the door and looked at me in shock.
Davina: Hope!
I just looked at her
She passed me running outside I think.
My uncle looked at me with a lot of rage.
She came to me and grabbed me by the hair and threw me back in the bedroom floor.
Uncle: you know there is only one animal I hate "WITCH" is a cat Moloi.
I didn't know what to say
Uncle: you see Cat cought your tongue?
Me: I am sorry...
Uncle: I know baby... I know. Believe me I do.
He went to his ensuit and came with a sjambok
Uncle: curiosity KILLED A CAT.
Whip! Whip! Whip
Me: aaah! Aaah!
He beat me until i couldn't scream no more.
