LEHAE

.

.

I just couldn't digest all that my father was saying. I just didn't see myself doing this now. We where now i this big waterfall.  My dad always told me our ancestors are under/ inside water. That's why we are called Bakwena i guess. 

Dad: are you ready?

I sighed

Me: can't we do this on my birthday 

Dad: actually  No.. once you have the powers you wil understand. 

Me: i am not sure about this.

Dad: you know what my father did?

I looked at him.

Dad: he died without giving me the powers.  But he did say i am the next King moments before he died. The community agreed but they where sceptical because the day i died i had to make it rain but i couldn't. 

Me: OOOH!!

Dad: i was banished and one of my uncles was set to sit on the throne until they found the rightful leader. My journey led me to this place. I became dizzy and fell inside the water. I was so sure i was dying. Until i saw a big Crocodile.  From then i did not know what happened.  All i remember was me laying inside the water. When i looked up there was water everywhere there was water except where i was laying. There was a big waterfall not far from where i was. It was different because it had a glowing star inside. I looked at it until i found myself inside. You know what happened. 

I shook my head

Me: nop! Buy i know your going to tell me.

He laughed

Dad: no i won't 

Me: but....

Dad: but you will see for yourself once you become the next king.

I sighed

Dad: well son.. i want to give you the powers.  Before i die.

Me: you scared they are going to banish me.

Dad: no i am scared someone might take them before i die and you might suffer. I will rather you have a short normal life you can possibly have.

Me: i don't think i will cope without you by side.

Dad: i can't hold your hand for the rest of your life Lehae.

Me: but you can give me the powers before time.

Dad: your mother is not this stubborn 

I raised my eyebrow

Me: she doesn't have to be because you agree to everything she say

He shook his head 

Dad: i am sorry i have to do this to you

Me: what do you mean?

Dad: i can see you wont agree so...

Me: so your going to force me.. what happened to free will

Dad: good luck son

He pushed me inside the water.

MOJADIBE 

.

.

Molwa: you people are asking me to do something that can make me loose myself forever. 

Mum: how much?

Molwa: it's not about the money.

Mum: since when?

Molwa: since you have asked me to kill the most powerful King in the history of Bakwena.

Me: how can he be so powerful 

Molwa: everytime he marries a wife his powers are magnified. 

Mum: what?

Molwa: he was not doing this for himself.

Me: he was doing it for Bakwena. Will Bakwena also marry many wives.

Molwa: No.. every king has a way of magnifying his own power.  As for Lehae it's yet to be unseen.

I thought about it

Me: i think it has to do with his mother.

Mum: why would you say that.

Me: Lehae has this obsession over his mother.  His just too attached.

Mum: every son is obsessed over their mothers.

I shook my head. 

Me: not like this.. i think it had to do with hee.

Molwa: it's yet to be seen

Mum: will you help us?

Molwa: i never said i will

Me: but...

Molwa: but nothing. I am not risking my life over your bitterness and jealousy.  If you want to kill him. Do it by yourselves because i don't want a hand in any of it.

Mum: one million

Molwa: heeelllaaa.. batho.  Mojako ke ole.. tsamayang 

Me: you are suppose to help us.

Molwa: leave my heart or suffer the consequences. 

I did not waste any more time i got up quickly and left her hut.

I was out of options.  I want kill that man. He has to die for my son to be king. Noway.. what will i do now?

LEHAE

.

You know that weird or scary or even embarrassing moment you wish could just dissappear or maybe you can just turn back time?! Yah that moment that's what i was going thru

Me: oooh God please wake me up. Please wake me up.. oooh i beg you Lord. I want to wake up.

I think i was crying yes! Crying. I am only 17. What do you expect. I swear this was  the worst day of my life. A nightmare i am dreading to wake up from... from this moment on i just wanted my mother. I cant believe dad is forcing me into this. When i specifically told him that i can't do this now.

I was wearing something that covered my butt and private parts. I kept looking around but dololo. Nobody was here. Ook that's weired.

.

Two weeks later

I woke up to my usual ruiten. Eat and sleep. Latley i don't even try i just sleep. I have trapped for two week now. I know this because i have been having visions of what's been happening at home.  I could see everything.  Including the fact that Mojadibe wants to kill my father for the thrown. And there's nothing i can do about it. The things i have been seeing with too much light i know it's not ment to be

I know this because i have been having visions of what's been happening at home.  I could see everything.  Including the fact that Mojadibe wants to kill my father for the thrown. And there's nothing i can do about it. The things i have been seeing with too much light i know it's not ment to be i know it means i should protect whomever. And the things in a little bit of darkness it simply means i should let it be.

"""You have seven days left Bakwena drink all the water you will receive.  And except your calling."""

Ok that's a first.. i have been stuck in here for two weeks with nobody to talk to but now someone can talk to me.

Me: mxwaaa it's not like i have a choice. 

I suddenly saw a very big bowl. 

I stood up and looked at it it was no ordinary water. The colour was blue and it was glowing.

I just drank it all of it.

I swear to talk the last sip was just dreadful. 

My head started spinning.  I heard voices in my head people screaming in pain and agony. 

No no no no... oooh God make it stop make it stop.
