Colonel: What!? No! it can't be Viola! I checked it on Monday it was in the system.

Mfazwe looked at Nomalanga she just nodded with tears in her eyes both her hands were on her head I feel so sorry for her but what can we say? Life is not fair.

Mfazwe and I walked to the cell where my client was they called her name she appeared she looked lost May can act.I gave her that "Don't you dare act suspicious" look....


Detective: May Ndamaseyou are free to go.


She put her left hand on her mouth the other on on her tummy tears were running down her cheeks I got emotional too.

Emily: believe it sweetie!

Universe: mom we will drop you at the Hotel then go shopping you don't have any maternity outfits. we have to go buy you 3 or 4 outfits. you don't need so many of those you will be giving birth soon.

Me: you are right baby.

Emily: before we go! Remind me to send Mfazwe the Million Rands.

Me: I don't think that's a good idea darling.

Her: what do you mean?

Me: you have to go to the bank an ask for the cash. You must give him hand cash if you deposit it to his account that can be investigated and he might be the suspect of the disappearance of the docket. 

Emily: you are a Genius! 


I smiled at her....


Me: and Emily you are not paying that money I am.


She looked at me.....


Her: babyI want to. let me do this.

Me: friend you have done a lot I mean you slept with the guythe least I can do is pay the amount of money he requested.


She looked down I guess she doesn't want to relive that moment....

 

Her: let's pay it together then . R500 000 each. 

Me: okay fine :)

May has no idea what we have in store for her. Firstly she has no idea that Hammer is getting married on Saturday. We decided to stop talking about Hammer with her the poor woman misses the guy but Hamilton don't give a Damn about her! That breaks my heart! I don't want to see my friend hurt.

We asked a designer to design us some outfits for the wedding we are not invited but I will be there. And i am taking May and Universe with me! Poor May has no idea about that!. We were on our way with Universedriving of course. We got so close with Universe because of this May arrest....


Universe: Mrs Smith I still don't know our plan!

Me: oh honey! Since the outfits are ready! We have one task right now 

Her: what is that?


I looked at her then smiled....


Her: Oh I know that smile!

Me: we need get our hands on Charice's precious daughter.


She looked at me....


Her: No Mrs Smith.we can't kidnap the kidshe is only one month old!

Me: No sweetieyou didn't get me. We need somethingher saliva or her clothes or anything even her bottle! And we have to get it today because the DNA should be done today and by tomorrow it has to be on our hands .


She smiled at me....


Her: that sounds easy! Oh my God! I can see the look on her face alreadywhen we stop her wedding.

 

We both laughed out loud we got to Pretoria we packed then walked to the Designer shop....

We walked in.....

The Designer was busy with some woman who was fitting a wedding dress....


Designer: Welcome Mrs Smith :)


He stopped what he was doing and came to us the bride turned around to look at us! Oh My God! You won't believe who it is!
