Today I am very late. It’s already 8 and I am still at home. I have to get to work I can’t take advantage of my relationship with Mr Lawson me being his girlfriend doesn’t mean I should do as I please he is still my boss. I locked the door then headed to the stop to catch a taxi. I saw the famous boy of the village running after me I thought we were over this running after me nonsense. We both moved on. He moved on with my friend and my colleague I mean Lawson’s daughter
He said that running after me
Me: So what?
I said walking away
Him: You have a new boyfriend now?
Me: If you don’t turn around and go back home I will get to work and tell Londeka Lawson you are my ex and you still want me!
Him: Hey don’t you dare flatter yourself. I don’t do maids I made it clear to you. I was just curious to know the loser you are with now
A taxi came I stopped it. I got in
I went to work. I don’t know why he keeps coming to me. I broke up with him but still he is bothered by my job. His mother when she sees me. She tells me about myself as if I don’t know who I am or what I am. I am sick of this. We might be poor but we don’t sleep hungry. I really don’t know what is wrong with these people. My life is not interesting I don’t know why it bothers them. I arrived at work. I quickly went in.
I haven’t seen Londeka ever since the day Mrs Lawson arrived. I don’t even know what Mr Lawson said to shut her up. This is gonna be a long day. We were finally getting along but today I have a feeling we will be back where we started. I breath in and out I attempted to open the door I heard footsteps. I turned around it is one of the workers at the supermarket
Him: Hello Nomandla Mhlekazi ( sir) wants his coffee sent to the office now
He smiled then walked away. I looked at the door again
I opened .

This farm girl is late. Sleeping with Mr Lawson doesn’t make her the boss lady of this house. I don’t care if she tells him but I think she needs to know. The door opened.
Me: Oh Mrs Lawson you decided to show up
Her: Excuse me?
Me: You carry on like this is your house is this the time to come to work?
Nomandla: I am sorry I am late I overslept I don’t know why you making a big out of this. It’s not like we have a lot to do. Anyway Mr Lawson wants coffee
Me: Oh I should have guessed you went to him?
Her: No! I bumped into some guy who was coming here to tell us!
Me: You know I would appreciate if we don’t talk today. Do your job
She took a tray
Her: I would appreciate that very much!
She tried to take the cups I just washed
Me: I will be carrying the tray!
She let go of it. She went to take a plate
Me: Mr Lawson don’t eat food this early. You are not going to the Office I am
Her: Fine I guess I will go do laundry then
Me: You do that!
She walked away
Me: I will make sure you don’t see your boyfriend today bitch
I said that between my lips. I went to the mirror I looked at myself. I look good. I took the tray

I just arrived at the supermarket. I was looking around smiling. If things go well I will be part of this everyday. I will be a regular here. I won’t have to go to the queue I will go straight to the teller and be helped
Me: I am proud of you my son
“ can we help you ma’am? “ said someone behind me. I turned around
Me: I am here to see your boss dear
Her: Let me go tell uMhlekazi
Me: Tell him it’s a teacher from the local school
She walked up. I saw the principal of my school coming In
I ran and hid behind a shelf where they pack groceries. I said I was going to the doctor when I left. He can’t see me here.

Nomandla is fighting me for a man she says she doesn’t want. She really surprised me yesterday at the river. I never thought the quiet Nomandla would fight for a man. It was so cute to see Qaqambile stand up for me. I am in love with that guy. I just wish one day he will see good in me not the sex toy the dildo he uses when he feels like having sex. I am more of a woman. I can do things Nomandla can’t do for him. Nomandla is clueless. She doesn’t know how to treat or handle a man. I am a better girl for him. I saw the door open
Mom: Why the door is closed ?
Me: Why are you home the kids haven’t eaten yet
Her: I came to speak to you so you slept with that Xaba boy yesterday?
I walked out I am not discussing this with her.
Mom: She confronted me!
I turned around
Her: His mother that woman don’t like you my daughter!
Me: That woman don’t like any girl in this village
Her: Baby is this thing serious? I can help you get that boy
Me: He doesn’t want anything serious
Her: And you?
Me: I want him ma but he just wants to sleep with me
She smiled looking away oh boy what is she up to?
Me: Okay……. ?
She looked at me
Mom: Her husband might have money and everything but he is a traditional man
Me: I don’t know where you are going with this?
Mom: If you could get pregnant he will be forced to marry you
Her: Think about it baby he is doing his last year in varsity he is going to work. I will be enjoying the lobola they will pay for you and you baby girl…….
She said putting her hands on my shoulders . I looked at her
Me: I will be Mrs Xaba :
Her: Yes baby
I hugged her. Then broke the hug fast
Me: I need to get pregnant fast!
Mom: He is alone now go! ;)
Me: How do I look?
Mom: Gorgeous baby
She ran away I was smiling from ear to ear. This plan must work
Me: It has to work
I felt one tear escape my left eye. I wiped it
Me: Nomboniso I just ruined your dream of getting a rich daughter in law
