Ndoniyamanzi

.

Have you ever been to a place and  fall in love with nature. That what was happening to me. The  trees  the grass everything was green and beautiful. My eyes couldnt help but looked around admiring Lord's creation. 

"Such a peaceful ambiance" I would never mistake that voice no matter what. I turned around.

Me:"Daddy!" I jumped up to him and gave him a huge hug. He whisked me off the ground and swirled with me.

Him:"Ntandokazi kaBaba" 

Me:"I missed you so much" He put me down

Him:"Im always with you" 

Me:"But its not enough daddy. Life is so hard without you"

Him:"I know ntandokazi I see everything Im so sorry for everything you went through" 

Me:"Why you didnt protect me I mean you are dead and powerful"

Him:"Im always protecting you ntandokazi but sometimes it hard because Im not with my family"

Me:"Why are you not with the family?"

Him:"Im still waiting for the ceremony" 

Me:"Oh" My heart broke into tiny little pieces. How will I do the ceremony for him. 

Him:"Dont cry I will protect you where I can" He wiped my tears that I didnt notice were falling "I have to leave now"

Me:"Please dont leave"

Him:"I will see you again. I love you ntandokazi" 

Me:"I love you too daddy" I woke up with a heavy heart. Ever since daddy died I have never dreamt about him and it use to worry me. After all these years did he have to appear like this though. How will I do the ceremony for him. I dont have cent in my name even if I did where will I peform the ceremony for him coz Im definitely not going back home. "Ungixolele Sengwayo ingaphekwami le" (Im sorry Sengewayo this is too much for me) I got up from my bed and went downstairs to the kitchen. I switched the light on and took a watermelon from the fridge and cut a piece than I put it back. I heard some noise as I took a bite of my watermelon. "Buti is that you?" Cwaka I walked to the lounge and switched the light on. The was nobody there but I could smell unfamiliar cologne. "Is anybody here?" My heart started beating fast just then someone covered my mouth from behind. I dropped the watermelon on the floor.

"Ssshhh" He whispered on my ear. Oh God what is going on now. I hit him with my elbow "Fuck you!!" He screamed holding his tummy. 

Me:"Buti!!" I screamed runing  upstaris but the guy grabbed my pj top "Butiii!!" I was already in tears and scared. 

Him:"Shut up the fuck up!!" He attempted to carry me I wiggled myself. 

Me:"Buti please help me!!" I shouted loudly. 

Him:"I said shut up bitch!!" He raised his hand to clap me. I closed my eyes waiting for the clap then  I heard a gun shot. I opened my eyes the guy coughed blood coming out of his mouth. He went down on his knees until he couldnt stand with them and fall down on the floor. I just stood there and froze like I was a statue.  

"Are you okay" said buti Nhlonipho walking towards me. I couldnt speak I was still shocked. "Ndoni are you okay?" 

Me:"You..you..s..shot him buti" I manage to utter those words 

Him:"I didnt have a choice" He tucked his gun on his pants "Im sorry you had to witness that" He wrapped his arms around me and squeezed me. I was shaking like crazy. "Go and pack your clothes we are leaving" He said breaking the embrace

Me:"To where?"

Him:"Im taking you to my cousin you are going to stay there until I figure out what to do" Oh no I have been praying  that this day never come

Me:"Whaat..You are kicking me out?" 

Him:"No Ndoni Im protecting you" 

Me:"You said you will never kick me out" I said with a teary voice.

Him:"Ndoni Im not kicking you out we have to hurry up. Your mom is looking for you that is why I have to protect you. I promise once I sort this out I will fetch you. This guy was going to take you if I didnt got here in time" 

Me:"But I dont want to go buti" Tears rolled down on my face

Him:"You will come back I promise" 

Me:"Why do I feel like you are making an excuse to get rid of me. Its okay buti I will leave you dont have to take  me to your cousin" 

Him:"Nooo sweetheart" He cupped my face with his cold hands "Im not getting rid of you. I need you to trust me please. Im doing this for your saftey okay" I nodded but part of me didnt want to believe him I dont know why. This guy have been nothing but nice  to me why would he lie to me. "Hurry up and pack  your clothes while I sort this out" he was referring to the body of the guy. 

Me:"Okay" 

Him:"I will sort this out okay" He wiped my tears. I nodded then I went upstairs to pack my clothes and other things. I was crying as I was packing. What does Nomthandazo want from me? Why cant she let me live in peace. She doesnt want me mos so ufunani kimi!  I finished packing and changed my pjs. 

"Are you finish?" That was buti 

Me:"Eh" I wiped my tears and took my phone under the pillow. Time was 4:30 in the morning. 

Him:"Let me help you with that" He took my luggage we walked out. I took a good look at the house "You will be back Ndoni" I sighed heavily than we exited driving to where? I dont know. 

Me:"Where are you taking me to?"

Him:"Johanesburg" 

Me:"Mh" He pulled off next to a river and stepped out of the car. I saw him walking to the boot the next minute he was walking to the river carrying the body on his shoulder than he threw it on the river. He came back and drove off. 

Me:"You dont have to do this buti look now you took someone's life because of me. Maybe I should go back home" 

Him:"That's not going to happen while Im still alive" 

Me:"But buti..."

Him:"No Ndoni I will do anything for you. Even if it takes me to kill the president himself!" Oh Lord this guy!  Where have he been all this time. "Do you mind if I play music loudly its help to clear my mind" 

Me:"No I dont I love music" He played  AKA ft Anatii ten fingers

Him:"I paid the price to be the main man

 We sang all the way  until we arrived at Joburg around 8am. He took his phone made a call

Him:"We are at the gate...sure" The gate opened he drove inside  and parked in the drive yard. "We are here" I sighed heavily. He stepped out of the car and went to open the door for me. I stepped out of the car and looked at the beautiful double storey. He took my luggage then we made our way to the door. A beautiful petite lady opened the door for us. 

Her:"Hello welcome"she smiled widely.  We walked inside the house

Him:"Hey cuz" They shared a hug. "Thanks for doing this for me" 

Her:"Its okay Nhlonipho...Hello girl" 

Me:"Hi"

Her:"Its nice to meet you Ndoni feel at home." 

Me:"Nice to meet you too" 

Him:"I have to go now" 

Her:"Haw I thought you will have some tea first before you go" 

Him:"Time is not on my side cuz. Thanks once again"

Her:"You are welcome" He hugged her cousin than he hugged me too.

Me:"Please dont leave me buti" 

Him:"Come on Ndoni we talked about this" I burst into tears. You can call me a cry baby or a drama queen I dont care I didnt want him to leave me alone with this lady. I have been through alot and I was scared I will go through the same thing again.

Me:"Buti please" I cried 

Him:"You will stay here for few days I promise" 

Her:"This is sad Nhlonipho is this the only way?"

Him:"Yes cuz but its for few days. Im running late bye" He walked out I followed him

Me:"Buti Im begging you" I sobbed. He turned around and walked towards me. He pulled me close to his arms and smashed his cold lips on mine.

Him:"I will come back for you" He let go of me and walked to his car he stepped inside and reversed out.
