~ Londeka ~
I should have guessed this annoying woman was gonna come here. I wish I came clean the day she walked in on us in her son’s room. I should’ve known she’d do this to me. I wish she called and told me she was coming to speak to my da… I mean Mr Lawson. Who goes introduce themselves to the parents of her son’s girlfriend without talking to the girlfriend? . She might be a teacher but she is damn stupid. I have never met a stupid woman like that. She cost me a lot. I have to pay the glasses I broke. I have to deal with Mr Lawson. How am I gonna look at him now? I lied and said I was his daughter.
Anyway I am standing at the door out of breath. I ran from the supermarket that’s why I am so tired. I opened the door. I got in
I was holding on to the door with my other hand on my chest . I looked up
She was standing folding her arms smiling
Her: Are you okay?
Her: Okay it’s fine if you don’t want to talk to me
She walked away
She turned around
Me: Please make Mr Lawson another cup of coffee and take it to him please
Her: You said you don’t need me in the kitchen. I am still busy with my laundry sorry girl
She walked away I ran after her
Me: Nomandla please!
Nomandla: What do you want from me?
Nomandla: I wanted to help you take coffee to “ Mr Lawson “ you said you don’t need my help now y….
Me: Okay! I tripped and fell just like you did on your first day here now I am scared Mr Lawson must be mad at me . I just ran out
What’s up with her and the smirk on her face?
Me: Nomandla please take coffee to Mr Lawson
Me: Thank you
She walked away. I sat down on the couch.
Me: What have I done ?

How could this girl do this to me! To my son!! . I spent R10 000 rands for what? For a poor maid? Her pretty face fooled us! We thought she was somebody only to find out she is nobody? After I spent Ten Thousand rands. Oh my God I have never felt so stupid in my life. I am not leaving this place without my money. I turned around. I looked at Mr Lawson
Me: I spent R10 000 rands on that girl
Mr Lawson: Shame why?
Me: I thought she was your daughter!
Him: Even if she was mine what makes you spend so much money what are you? A millionaire?
Me: From now on that girl don’t get her pay cheque. You send it to me until I get my R10 000 rands!
He stood up
Him: Let me get this straight. ….
Him: You are going to tell me how to pay my employee?
Him: where was I when you made a deal with her?
Me: I want my R10 000 rands Mlungu!!!
Him: Get out of my office before I call security!
I ran for my life. This man is scary as hell. I don’t know why I was even excited to have a relationship with his family. I don’t even like him.

I am standing watching Mrs Xaba running out of Mr Lawson’s office. She looks upset. Londeka didn’t trip and fall. I didn’t tell her I knew because she was gonna think I am the reason Mrs Xaba came. The poor girl was shocked to see her mother in law. I walked to the office. I knocked. Then opened the door. Mr Lawson stood up when he saw me
Him: Oh thank you for the coffee baby
Me: Stop calling me that here Mr Lawson
Him: No one can hear us
Me: I am not going to take anymore risks in your house
Him: This is not my house
Me: This is your property anyway what did you do to Londeka’s mother in law?
I gave him the cup
Him: Thank you You knew?
Me: You remember me telling you about my ex?
Me: I was dating her son. She forced us to break up because she didn’t want her son to date a maid and his son was also ashamed of my job
Him: Did Londeka know your ex?
Me: No. Mrs Xaba met me the other day she said I will be serving her at your dinner table because her son is dating your daughter Londeka Lawson
Him: I will deal with her for sleeping around using my last name
Me: Baby she is ashamed this is embarrassing for her I could see when she got to the house. I left her crying please forgive her
Him: Why are you defending her? She doesn’t even like you
Me: I know. But I feel sorry for her
Him: I will confront her but what I will not do is what that woman asked me to do L Me: What is that?
Him: She says I should give her all Londeka’s pay cheque month end.
Him: She says she spent R10 000 on her
Me: In 3 days of their relationship already she spent that kind of money?
Him: My question exactly
Me: She was hoping to get something from you
He sipped on his coffee
Him: Poor woman she is a teacher?
Him: Very stupid for an educated woman
They rubbed this in my face. I am going to do the same to them. They must pray I don’t bump into them

I am angry as hell. I have to start afresh and save. I wasted my money. I bought unnecessary things to impress the Lawsons. That Nomandla girl knew about this. She watched me act like a fool she didn’t tell me. I hate her for this. I arrived in my house. I parked my car. I heard loud music coming from my son’s room. I went to my living room. I put my handbag. I went to his room. I opened the door
What does this child want from my son? Didn’t I ask her to stay away? I walked out. I took 20 litre of water. I went to his room. I splashed the water on them. They jumped off bed
Qaqa: What th…
Lithakazi: Mrs Xa……
I slapped her so hard on her face she fell on the floor. I kicked her. My son held me back. I pushed him he fell on the bed. I ran to this slut .
Me: Little Whore! Nondindwa!!!!!!
Lithakazi: Yoh yoh!
I grabbed her hair I kicked her. She pushed me I fell
She ran out .
Qaqambile: Mom how can you beat that poor girl like that!?
I stood up breathing heavily
Qaqambile: Mo…… !!
I didn’t let him finished I lost it
Me: Londeka is a maid!!!!!!!
I sat down on the chair next to his bed I was crying. Qaqambile looked at me
Him: What did you just say?
I looked down crying
Him: What did you say mama!?
Me: She has been a maid for the Lawsons for………
I looked up trying to prevent the tears from coming out
Me: She’s been a maid for 5years!!!
I stood up. I looked at him
Me: My son fell in love with yet another maid!
He looked away
Qaqambile: That liar!....
He looked at me
Me: She fooled us
Him: She said yes
What is this boy talking about?
Me: What are you talking about ?
Qaqambile: I proposed to her last night
Me: You did what!!!?
