< MASIXOLE >  

  

Today is the worst day of my life. I am upsetting a lot of people I care about. The only person who is giving me support is my future mother in law. Mrs Seputla believes in me. She trusts me with everything she has. I am working at this Gold mine because of her. I met Priscilla because of her. She opened her home to me. I live in her Penthouse with her my fiancé and my future brother in law Elton Junior who doesn't even like me. I am saying he doesn't like me because he is one of the people who are suspicious of me. I am no saint. I hate that they disapprove of me because I love Priscilla but at the same time I understand their concerns. They are spot on. I am hiding something from this family and I am scared that things will get ugly when they discover the truth about me. Mrs Seputla will never trust me again. She will be disappointed in me and I might lose her daughter for good.  

  

Right now I am very scared. I don't know whether what I am about to do is the right thing to do or not. It's early in the morning. I am in my office. Our offices are in a very tall building. I am just standing looking down at the view outside. It's a beautiful day in Jo'burg but the question is am I having a good day? Am I feeling like someone who is getting married? Am I ready to get married today? Only God can answer that. I saw the door of my office open. I turned around. It's my friend Aaron. He works at our finance offices. Me:   

Me: hey bro :D _  

Try smiling while you're nervous or worried about something l. it's a hard thing in the world but because a smile is something to cover all the secrets and pain we have to keep it on. Anyway I greeted my buddy with a smile in my face. I don't want him to see that I am worried.  

Aaron: I thought we were meeting at Home Affairs. What are you doing here? :D  

He said smiling as well. He is excited for me. I should be excited too I mean I am marrying the woman of my dreams.  

Me: What are you doing here? : _  

Him: I asked first :)  

I looked away  

Friend: Are you sure you want to do this?  

I looked at him  

Me: How can you ask me that man? I love my woman :( Him: I know but really bro? Why did you make this ridiculous decision? I 

am sure her father is turning on her grave....... _ I looked at him. He could see the look in my face wasn't friendly he stopped talking. What is he talking about? Why wouldn't Mr Seputla be happy? I love his daughter. Me: What are you talking about? :(  

Him: A daughter of a billionaire is getting married at Home Affairs  

do you hear how absurd that sounds Bro? _  

Me: What is your point bro? :(  

I said with a firm voice. He is making things worse. I walked to my whisky. I poured myself a glass. I sipped while still sipping and  downing my drink he started talking Him: 

Why are you doing this Masixole?  

I looked at him  

Me: I told you why I am doing this didn't I !? :(   

I snapped. I don't need this right now. He is making me angry and i don't like that.  

Him: calm down man! It doesn't make sense. Is it because you grew up without parents and you don't want to be asked about your family? 

_  

Me: I told you my reason! We are not having this conversation again do you hear me? _  He raised his hands  

Him: Yes sir _  

My phone rang. I took it. It's my fiancé. I put my glass on the table then took my briefcase  

  

Him: This is Priscella. Let's go get Me married:D  

I lead the way. I heard him responding with a low voice "Yes sir ". I shook my head.  

  

  

< Priscella >  

  

I am a very successful girl. I was taught to be responsible at a young age. I saw how hard my parents worked to put this business to where it is today. I grew up knowing that one day I would have a position in this company but I never thought it would be a CEO position. It came as a shock to me. My father died so young. I miss him everyday. I just wish he was here today even thought I don't think he would've approved of my decision. Today I just got married. I married a man of my dreams. I know not everyone is happy about this but what makes me so happy is the fact that the most important person in my life is supportive. I really appreciate Ms Refilwe so much. Well Ms Refilwe is my mom. I call my mother like that. She didn't come with us to court because she had a meeting in Rustenburg. She sent my brother who is not happy at all with this. I don't know why because he is the last person to judge. My brother Junior is a spoilt little brat who just wants to be famous. He doesn't care about our reputation and our family as long he has a fat bank account and spending money with girls all over Gauteng hotels. That is all he knows. So I don't expect him to say a word about my life when his is just a shame. At court I was with my brother Junior My fiancé Aaron who is my Fiancé's friend and my best friend Sonia De Villiers. She is white and been my friend since we were young. Her father Mr De Villiers was my father's friend and is a shareholder in the mine so we are pretty close more like family.  

Anyway right now we just said Goodbye to the guys. I am just left with Sonia now. The guys are rushing to Meetings. My brother is probably going out shopping. We were left doing a few things at Home Affairs and we just finished now. We are walking out. I was walking faster because Sonia and I we are not on speaking terms even though she came to support me.  Sonia: Priscella slow down! _  

She said running behind me. I can't wait to get out of here. The reason I am avoiding her is because she is going to lecture me and I do not have time for that. I got married whatever she says won't matter anymore.  

Me: I am just rushing back to the office :(  

I said not even looking at her. I was walking fast to the car. Sonia: Come on! Mrs R said we must take the rest of the day off and go celebrate at the penthouse! _  

Me: Ms Refilwe is not a CEO Of that company I am! :(  

My chauffeur opened the door of my car I felt Sonia grab my Wrist just when I was attempting to go in. I turned around and looked at her hand. She let go of me.  

Sonia: I know you're upset friend but we need to talk! _  

I exhaled  

Me: Speak! :(  

She turned around and looked at the high stairs to the home affairs I just know what she is going to say.  

Sonia: Mr Seputla's daughter just got Married at Home Affairs really girl!? :(  

Me: Sonia I told you Masixole did this because I am pregnant! He didn't want to have a child with me before I become his wife isn't that romantic? :)  

Sonia: Romantic? Do you call getting married here Romantic? Girl what did that Eastern Cape man do to you? :(  

I looked down. I mad at her right now. She is my friend and she is supposed to support me not put me down  

Me: That Eastern Cape man is my husband! I love him and he has a name quit calling him that! He has a name. You never trusted Masixole ever since I met him. It's been 3 years now and he is always been faithful to me! :(  

I flipped my hair then put my hand on the car. Sonia came to me. She touched my hand. I felt a tear drop  

Sonia: Babe you're 26 years old and already you're a millionaire You are a CEO Of a billion dollar company! Every day you make a lot of money!  

What's her point? Right now she is saying all the things I know about myself.  

Me: I don't know where you're going with this :( _  

She smiled. She could see I am upset. Masixole has been working for us for a while. Why can't she trust him? Is she jealous of my handsome man? She has her own man.  

Sonia: You're 8 weeks pregnant. You're not showing. Now tell me with the money you both have don't you think you'd have planned a beautiful wedding in 7 days? :(  

I smiled then walked away trying to get away from her. She is looking at me in the eye that makes me uncomfortable. That makes me doubt my man something I don't want to do. Her reasons make sense and I hate it but I am not going to show her I do because she will take advantage and eat my man alive. She never liked him so I won't give her a chance to tarnish his name.  

Sonia: Tell me! :(  

I turned around and looked at her.  

Me: You know we have friends all over the world. We want everyone to be here. You know this

I turned around and looked at her.  

Me: You know we have friends all over the world. We want everyone to be here. You know this your dad and father have friends abroad. I 

want my wedding to be beautiful! I want everyone who loves me and who loved my dad to be here! :(  

Sonia: Then maybe you should've said no to marriage now. Girl there  are so many girls who have children before marriage _ I folded my arms on my chest.  

Me: Except I am not many girls ☹  

I said that with so much attitude. She knows I am not so many girls I  don't know why she is saying that.  

Sonia: I know you're not so many girls but I hate the way you got married today  

Me: I know friend and I am sorry. We will get our white wedding soon :)  

I said smiling trying to convince her that everything is okay. But is it? This feels right. Everything is okay. I do believe so.  

Sonia: But friend I still think you made a mistake _ Me: 

What?  

Sonia: How can you do this? I still think you and Hungani were great for each other _ Me: I am done here! :(  

Hungani is my ex and he is a TV personality. We broke up 4 years ago when he cheated on me. We were dating for 5 years. He cheated on me with a supermodel. I dumped him right there and then. After  Sonia mentioned his name I walked to the car and got in. The chauffeur attempted to close the door Sonia hold it.  

Sonia: Hungani made a mistake once. That man is good for you. He is smart. He is from this side of the world. Everything that comes out of his mouth is decent and he is friends with my husband and my husband is faithful to me. There is a saying that says you're a reflection of your friends. I believe he can change just by looking at how faithful my husband is to me _  

Me: I don't want you to come to my house for a celebration! I can't look at a woman who just insulted my husband like this! :(  

Sonia: I didn't insult him I just....... _  

I didn't let her finish her nonsense. She is my friend not my parent. I am not letting her disrespect my family like this.  

Me: You said he is not decent! Go home! :(  

I pulled the door and slammed it hard. How can she belittle my man like this for a man who didn't respect me? The nerve on this woman.  

  

  

< Judge Nomakhosazana >  

  

Some people never thought this day would come some wished it never comes but it is finally here. My boy is coming home very soon and he is going to be a chief. I called a meeting to the Royal house. When my husband died we gave the chieftaincy to his brother while my son was studying. Now he finished and he is coming home. When we gave away the chieftaincy to my brother in law we remained here.  

We didn't move. I would never leave my house. I am still the queen. My brother in law's wife is not royalty so I would never leave my home for a commoner. I called a meeting to discuss an important matter here. Everyone is here except for my brother in law and his wife. I hate being kept waiting. I don't know why they don't respect me. My husband was older than him. I am his sister. He calls me sisi but right now I wouldn't care if he called me Nomakhosazana. This is disrespectful. This shows he doesn't respect me at all he might as well just call me by my name.  

Anyway I got tired of sitting. I stood up. I saw Siqalo our servant stand  

Siqalo: I can go remind them my Queen _  

I looked at him. I hope he didn't forget to tell them.  

Me: Did you tell Hlohlesakhe about this meeting? :(  

Siqalo: My Queen he was not home but I found....._  

He started thinking looking nervous I saw him look down playing with his hands  

Me: What is it Siqalo? _ He looked at me.  

Siqalo: I found the other Queen my queen _  

" Oh No!” Said everyone in the room. The reason everyone is reacting like this is because they know the wife don't want Hlohlesakhe to return the chieftaincy back to my son.  

Me: So you told Nontorotyi? _  

I said looking at Siqalo fuming with anger. I know that woman didn't tell my brother in law  

Siqalo: Yes My queen. She promised to tell him _  

Me: I am sure she didn't! _  

I said going to the door leaving everyone with their eyes popped out. They know me. I don't play games with this family. They want tough love I know them. I don't have to do this. I am inviting them to my meeting because I respect them. How dare they do this to me? This meeting can go on without them but I won't do it not until I tell them what I think of them. I saw Siqalo run to me. I turned around  

Me: Go inside and Sit down Siqalo! _  

Siqalo: Okay My queen _  

He said moving backwards looking nervous. I furiously walked to my brother in law's house. They don't live far from where we live. They are our neighbours. Even the village cases are solved at my house. Hlohlesakhe is just regent so everything is done at the Royal house. My house. I don't have time to move around. Anyway I arrived in no time. I knocked once then opened the kitchen door. I found this woman with a bowl in her hand. She is busy cooking while I called a meeting is this woman crazy? She looked at me and smiled. That smile was written guilty as charged. So this woman was told about the meeting and decided not to come?  

Nontorotyi: Judge Noma...... _   

I didn't let her finish. I don't have time for her sarcasm. She addresses me by my profession I don't know why she does that.  

Me: Nontorotyi where is your husband? _  

She looked at me then shook her head. She put the bowl on the table  

Her: At least you're not calling Me by my surname today :) _  

Well I always call her by her full names when I am angry. She is Nontorotyi Dimbaza but she is married to my brother in law So she is Nontorotyi Ndengana. I use her family surname just to provoke her. She and her husband are just the same. It's like they were cut from the same cloth.  

Me: Nontorotyi! Dimbaza is your surname. I don't see anything wrong with me calling you that! :( She looked at me.  

Her: I am married to this family just like you! I am a Ndengana!  

Show some....!! :( _  

Me: Your actions don't show that! _  

She looked at me waiting for me to explain myself. She knows what I am talking about. I don't know why she is acting like a lost puppy  

Me: Your actions don't show that! _  

She looked at me waiting for me to explain myself. She knows what I am talking about. I don't   know why she is acting like a lost puppy  

Me: You don't have Royal blood in your veins that is why you're acting li.... :( _  

She didn't let me finish She gave me a hand  

Her: _ ✋ Me: 

:( _  

That got me more angry. How dare she shush me?  

Her: Oh please! Stop it already! When will you stop telling me that!? 

:(  

Me: I asked you a question. Where is your husband? _  

She took the bowl then walked away I grabbed her arm. She turned around. She looked nervous. I just know why she is acting like this. I gave her death stare.  

Me: You didn't tell him about our meeting did you? _  

She looked at me. Her lips were moving but the words couldn't come out  

Nontorotyi: ...... _  

Me: See what I am talking about!? _  

I said furiously walking around. I summoned her and her husband to come to the Royal house. I hope and pray she won't lie and say she didn't see Siqalo because I will see myself slapping her. My servant is loyal to me and would never lie.  

Nontorotyi: What are you talking about? _  

I turned around and looked at her. I am angry. If I wasn't a queen I would throw a slap at her.  

Me: Nontorotyi you're not from a Royal blood ! you don't respect our ways!.... __  

She didn't let me finish again. She snapped  

Nontorotyi: You're going to say that every time we have a fight!? _  

_  

She was crying now. I don't want to upset this woman. I just want her to respect me and my position as a Queen. Her tears don't fool me. Me: Why didn't you tell your husband I summoned you to the Royal house? _  

Nontorotyi chuckled shaking her head.  

Nontorotyi: You know you have some nerve Nomakhosazana _ _ I quickly looked at her. I didn't expect that tone.  

Me: What's that? _  

Nontoroyi: My husband became the chief 8 years ago and he was supposed to be the one living at the Royal house! _ _  

I looked down feeling a bit guilty. That house is mine. It was built by the government for me and my husband. I couldn't move out of my house because it was a temporary thing. This chieftaincy is my son's! I didn't see the need to move when years later I will have to come back.  

Nontorotyi: Did you move out? _ _  

Me: Your husband is a regent not a chief besides! That was 8 years ago and i gave you my reasons! _  

Her: A chief is supposed to live there.That's our house! _ _  

I went to her  

Me: That is where you're wrong!!!! _  

I snapped she looked a bit shaken by that. I went closer to her Me: Zwelicacile is a chief of this village your husband is just  

warming up the seat for my son! _ She folded her arms looking pissed off Me: 

I will always be the Queen!   

I said smiling looking at her. I could see she was annoyed by what I said judging by how her face looked Me: Zwelicacile is coming back!   

Nontorotyi: _ _  

She looked shocked. I saw her put her right hand on her mouth. Me: And he is not just coming back! He is coming back to take what belongs to him!   

Nontorotyi looked away. She put her hand on her forehead looking frustrated  

Me: You will never be the Queen! _  

She turned around fast and looked at me breathing heavily. She didn't say anything Her Wig was all over her face  

Me: Tell Hlohlesakhe I was here and I want to see you at the Royal house this afternoon! _  

Nontorotyi: _ _  

I furiously walked out of her house and slammed the door leaving her with her mouth wide open.
