~ Mr Lawson ~
Me: Baby what are you guys doing here?
Her mom: Is that how you welcome your guests!?
Me: Sorry! Come on in
I kissed her mother’s cheek and everyone else. They were 5 of them
Ellen: I missed you my baby
She hugged me
Me: I thought you were coming tomorrow
Her mom: And leave this town without seeing my son in law? Never
Me: I am happy you guys are here
Am I? No I have a poor girl in my bloody car! I am pissed as hell at them for being here
Her mom: Let me go to the guest room. I am tired
She can’t go there! The room is a mess
Me: No! No! Just sit here! Baby make them coffee. I will go change the sheets
Ellen: Oh that’s sweet of you honey
I ran up the stairs. I went to that room. I opened the windows. I made the bed. I looked around if there’s anything suspicious. I closed the door. I called Nomandla
She was whispering. My poor baby.
Me: Just relax. I will drive you home when they are gone to bed
She said with a crying voice
Me: Please don’t cry
She hung up. I opened the door I closed the windows. I went downstairs. I found Her mother standing with her coffee
Her: I will finish this in the guest room J
Me: Okay mom
She walked upstairs with others. I turned around Ellen was standing behind me
Her: Let’s go upstairs
Me: Go baby I will find you there
She came to me she kissed me
Her: Baby early in the morning I am leaving. I am not letting you off my sight
Me: I will come up baby
Her: What are you gonna do downstairs. Let’s do it together
Me: I want coffee
Her: My poor husband I should have made you a cup come !
She pulled me to the kitchen.
We made coffee. I had to drink it. I didn’t want coffee. We went to bed after that. She was all over me. I don’t know how many times we had sex. She was cuddling me all night. She was not letting me go. The poor girl is gonna sleep in the car tonight.

It’s very cold tonight. I couldn’t sleep alone. I had to find a local girl while Londeka is on her moods. I can’t sleep alone. I know all the girls in my village love me. The only girl I ever loved here is Nomandla it’s a pity we had to break up. Anyway I just had sex with this girl
Her: Why you don’t want us to date?
Me: I told you I wanted someone to warm up my bed. Stop asking questions
Her: admit it you enjoy our sex
Me: Do you want to go home?
Her: Fine! I am sorry
She looked the other way. I laid my head on the pillow with both my hands on the back of my head. I looked up. I wanted sex. I got it now I am disgusted by her.
~ Nosukile ~
He raised his head. I am waking up the poor boy. Its 4am in the morning. He sleeps with Nomandla.
Me: Where is Nomandla?
Odwa: She washed and left Makazi ( aunt )
Odwa: When I came to sleep she was already gone
Me: You are telling me she didn’t sleep here!?
Odwa: Ewe Makazi (yes auntie)
Me: I have to go to Nomboniso’s house! She said she ended things with that Xaba boy!
Odwa: Why uvuke early auntie? ( why are you up so early aunt? )
I didn’t expect that question
Me: I couldn’t sleep boy
He covered himself. I have to go to that Xaba house now! I went to my boyfriend. That’s why I am up early.
~ Nomandla ~
I heard a knock. I opened my eyes damn I can’t believe he didn’t come! I Slept in his damn car! I can’t believe it’s already Sunday morning. I quickly unlocked the car. It’s Mr Lawson
He got in the car
Him: Lie down baby
I looked at him fuming with anger
Him: I am sorry okay
He pulled me I lied my head on his thighs crying. He started the engine brushing me with his other hand. He drove out.
Me: I slept in your car!
Him: I know baby. My wife was so suspicious. She couldn’t let me go
Me: I am not coming here again!
Him: We will go spend a one night at Coffee Bay every week. I can’t take these risks anymore
Him: You can sit up now
I sat up I wiped my tears. He gave me couple of hundred notes
Me: So much money?
Him: It’s my way of saying sorry. Go to town and buy you something nice. I want to drop you here I can’t be seen in your neighbourhood here is R10 to hick
Me: Thank you
Him: I love you bye
I walked out of the car
Me: Love you too
He turned the car around. I didn’t go down on the main road. I took a shot cut home. I can’t be seen walking down the road. I counted the money.
Me: R 1 500 :
Wow I will have to keep this till month end. My mom will be suspicious and ask questions I don’t have answers for.
