THE BACHELOR


Insert 6


WEEKS LATER


SABELO


My phone rings under the bed disturbing me from my sleep. I answer without even checking who is calling.


Me: hello?


I hear sniffs and soft cries. I quickly sits up and check the caller ID. I don't know this number and it's 3 am in the morning.


Me: hello? Who's this?


Voice: I'm sorry to wake you up but my husband is no more. I just woke up to him death 


Me: huh?


Voice: it's Busi Mchunu...


Snap! Macingwane's wife. I feel a cold sweat on my back.


Me: what happened?


Busi: I don't know. We weren't to bed he was fine and when I came back from the bathroom few minutes ago I realized he wasn't moving so I checked him and..


She wails painful and I rub my eyes and forehead. The moment of truth is here. The question is am I ready?


Me: I am so sorry. I really I am.


Busi:he instructed me that I should call you first should such happen and you will know what to do.


Yes Bonga and Macingwane briefed me about the rules of their cult that both of them are into and I have been sleeping on the decision. It is not something that you can wake up to and jump into it.


Me: I will be on my way I am going to wake my brother up. 


I hung up and put on my clothes. The moment I open my door I find him outside just about to knock.


Bonga: good you are up. Let's go.


Me: how did you know?


Bonga:all the brotherhood knows and are on their way. Let's go before his kids arrives.


This is foreign to me and the way he is so cool about it scares me. We get into his car and drives straight to his house.


MINENHLE


I open up my eyes and stare at the huge diamond ring on my finger. Today's my lobola negotiation. My father didn't like this at all that he refused to be part of it.

I had to get his brothers who were so happy to receive few thousands from me to hold them.


I can't let my father mess this up for me. When Joe asked me to marry him I said yes immediately. It's a good thing that Sabelo is busy with his boss's funeral that's holding up today he won't be around to ruin things for me.


I am sure by the time he reads the messages and listens to the voice notes I sent to him all will be done. Baby is relocating to Singapore and there is no way I am missing that one out because of love.


I am doing this it's has always been my dream to marry a rich affording man that can be able to take care of my needs.


BONGA


Sabelo and I follow each other to the house. We have been quite ever since we left the Macingwane's. I can't believe that his kids called up a lawyer to read a will immediately after the funeral. Greedy motherfuckers.


Sabelo takes my whiskey and drinks it.


Me: so what are you going to do? Bhekisisa was not happy.


Sabelo: I don't care about him. I didn't ask for this they read and saw the video he recorded.


Me: yeah but you need to be careful ndoda. It's going to get really tough.


Sabelo: it's been a very busy week. I need few hours of sleep then I will process all of this mess. 


Me: I'm here if you need me.


Sabelo:(smiling weakly) dankie Zalo


I sit down and scroll down instagram and Joe's posts captures my attention. He is posing proudly with MINENHLE and they are wearing matching traditional outfits.


Me:issa movie!


Sabelo: yini? ( What is it)


He asks looking at me. I look at him.


Me:me zibonele. Angithi bongangikholwa. ( Here see for yourself. You didn't believe me all along)


He takes one look and stand up.


Sabelo: what? Yinto eyenzeke nini lena? ( When did this happen?)


Me: earlier today by the look of things.


Sabelo: how can Minnie do this to me? Ngiyamazi nje lomjita!( I know this guy!)


Me: yes you know him we once went to his club remember when you accompanied me..


Sabelo: (throwing my phone back at me and taking out his) yeah yeah I remember.


He tries to call Minnie but it's rings answered. He then goes to WhatsApp and discovers the shock of his life.


Me: I wish I could say I told you so but I hate seeing you hurt. I'm sorry but I say it's for the best.


Sabelo: I need to see her. There must be an explanation of this..


Me:ai Sabelo mfethu yeka lomuntu.


Sabelo: no

Sabelo: no I can't. You don't understand.i love this girl. How can his father allow this? He knows the plans I had for his daughter.


He says with glass eyes and my heart breaks for him. You see why I don't do this relationships nonsense? 


Me: what are you going to do and how can I help?


Sabelo:I will handle this my way thank you. I am leaving.


Me: can I at least drive you?


Sabelo: can you stop babysitting me? Ngimdala kunawe Bongumusa!


Me: I know shoot me for caring and looking out for you.


Sabelo: I know and appreciate everything but for now leave me alone please.


He says grabbing my car keys and walk out leaving me calling after him. I sigh and rest on the couch. Mjolo issa pandemic. I prefer entanglements.


THE MCHUNU BROTHER'S


Bhekisisa:(pacing up and down) how can father do this to us? Giving him 80% of the business? It's not fair!


Themba: he did something to father and the fact that he was the first person to arrive after his death doesn't sit well with me.


Zenzo: mina ngithi akafe amlandele nje masinya. (I say let's kill him)


Bafana: awh kahleni ngehaba. Kuyo yonke lento ubaba ayishilo ninendaba nefa nje? Akunithinti ukuthi ubaba bekasithanda njengezingane zakhe even after he discovered we are not his biological? He was very generous to even leave us the rest of the businesses. Let Sabelo run this one guys.


Bhekisisa: you speak nonsense just like a last born vele. The taxi business is the root and wall of all these businesses. We can't let a stranger take it away from us. I agree with Zenzo. He needs to die ngokushesha nje futhi.


To be continued.
