I know that was stupid of me to not wash the blood in the boot. Im drivng a volvo for crying out loud I didnt think traffic cops will have a nerve to stop me. "Is everything okay here?" Said another traffic cop walking towards us. "Haw Dr Sithole is that you" He said smiling at me. He looked familiar but I couldnt put a name on his face 

Me:"Yes its me" 

"Gatsheni do you remember the doctor that healed my daughter's illness after going in and out of hospitals" 

Gatsheni:"Yes you told me about him"

"Well you are looking at him!" He said looking at me with satisfaction

Gatsheni:"He must be doing his job well hey but right now we have to take him to the police station to check if this its really an animal's blood or its human being's blood"

"Ah come on let the doctor go Im sure its an animal's blood"

Gatsheni:"But..."

"Stop delaying the doctor he got lives to save" Gatsheni gave me a "Uzohlala usinda" look. 

Gatsheni:"Here" I took my license

Me:"Thank you" I sighed out of relief

"Drive saftely Dr Sithole" 

Me:"Thank you sir" I closed my boot and went inside the car then drove off before they change their mind. Umkhulu Jesu Uyasabeka!! (God is great!!) I wanted to start at wimpy and have breakfast but I couldnt risk to bump into cops again so I went straight home and scrubbed the blood in my boot. After that I took a shower and got dressed into casual clothes then I went to see my friend Vusi at Hutten Heights. 

Me:"Versace!"

Him:"R" we bumped shoulders

Me:"How are you my man?"

Him:"Ah ngabe usizwile bra kade kusile" (all is well) 

Me:"Im starving what do you have here" I opened the fridge and took an apple

Him:"You know Im a bachelor man" 

Me:"Im in trouble bra Ngomyoma is working with Ndoni's mom to find her I dont know what to do"

Him:"Holy shit!!" 

Me:"Tell me about it man!"I took a bite of an apple 

Him:"Let the girl go bra"

Me:"Whaat are you mad?"

Him:"I dont have to remind you what will happen if Ngonyoma find out you are hiding the girl. Just let her go man"

Me:"I cant that woman is abusing her Versace!!"

Him"Why do you care so much about this girl?"

Me:"She doesnt deserve to be abused Versace nobody does!!"

Him:"Its more than that isnt?...Shit you are falling for her!" He eyeballed me

Me:"Hayi!" 

Him:"Wow I cant believe the one girl guy is falling for another girl while he have his one girl"

Me:"Mxm I didnt come here for that I want you to tell me what should I do?" 

Him:"I repeat let the girl go!"

Me:"You are such a useless friend nx!" 

Him:"Dont you dare click your tounge at me Nhlonipho!"

Me:"I just did what  are you going to do about that!"

Him:"This girl is driving you crazy I have to meet her who knows maybe I might  find myself between her thighs before you" 

My blood boiled I grabbed him by his clothes and pinned him against the wall. 

Me:"Ngizokupitshiza Vusimuzi!!" (I will squash you Vusimuzi!!) 

Him:"Geez bra I was kidding" I let go of him

Me:"Nx!" I walked out and drove off aimlessy. I was angry and scared. What am I going to do?? Come on Nhlonipho think!! I cant let Ndoni go I really cant! I drove to liquor store and bought jack daniels ciders then I went back to my car. I gulped down two ciders and sighed heavily. I took my phone and dialed Sdumo  a family friend of my other cousn's friend

Him:"Respect my man"

Me:"Hey bra I need your help" 

Him:"Im your man bra" 

Me:"Can you please dig up some woman's skeletons"

Him:"Okay no problem"

Me:" I need this information as in yesterday" 

Him:"It will cost you bra"

Me:"Money is not a problem" 

Him:"What is her name?"

Me:"Nomthandazo Gloria Zungu. She's a police officer at Dannhauser police station" 

Him:"Cool then"

Me:"I will double your money if you make it snappy as possible"

Him:"Izinto"

Me:"Sure" I hung up.

I was lying on the bed thinking about the kiss and what sis Sethu said. Firstly he is old secondly he have someone in his life and thirdly im not ready for a relationship. What do I know about love. Things will be awkward between us I can feel the awkwardness already. My phone rang disturbing me

Me:"Mzala"

Her:"Hey Mzala" she burst into tears

Me:"What is wrong mzala" 

Her:"They ganged up on me and made me scrub my vagina with a scrubbing brush" If she was not crying I would have burst into laughter

Me:"They?  who are they?" 

Her:"My boyfriends they found out that Im dating them all"

Me:"Ohh phephisa skati" 

Her:"Its so painful mzala I cant even pee"

Me:"Ah shame Im sorry" Now I was feeling sorry for her mara naye ay five at once really? I wish girls can be smart like Azanda's boyfriends and stop hating each other. 

Her:"I hate them! How could they do this to me" 

Me:"Sorry go tell the police they violated you"

Her:"They will pay for this!"

Me:"Dont do something drastic Azanda wena ikhanda lakho libuye lingakulaleli"

Her:"Nobody mess with Zanda and get away with it...I have to go" 

Me:"Im sorry once again" I hung up just then my phone rang again. It was buti. I looked at it I was reluctant to answer it but I missed  him. 

Me:"Buti"

Him:"Hey sweetheart how is everything there"

Him:"Im working on something yezwa"

Me:"If you can estimate how many days will I stay here?"

Him:"Im not sure baby maybe less than a week"

Me:"Okay are you good?"

Him:"Yes Its lonely here without you" Then there was awkward silent. I decided to broke it just as he decided to broke it too

Me:"You go first"

Him:"No you go first" 

Me:"Hayi buti talk first"

Him:"Oho im not saying anything until you talk first" 

Me:"Ah well then we will both be mute until you run out of air" He laughed

Him:"Im up for the challenge" 

Me:"Bring it on!" Almost 20 minutes we didnt talk to each other just listening to each other's breathing 

Him:"Wuu ahy I give up!" I giggled

Me:"Loser is your middle name" 

Him:"Mxm uyaphapha nobuhle" I giggled. We talked about random things until he ran out of airtime.

Three days have passed the house is empty without  Ndoni. I missed her so much. Sdumo found skeletons of that evil woman ay you might  know evil people out there but you havent met Ndoni's mother yerrr that woman is worse than satan himself.  I was fumming as I was driving to Danhhauser. How can a human being be cruel like this. Nx. I hope when I get there I will be able to control myself coz I can see myself blowing her brains Nx! I saw kids playing soccer then I lowered my window.

Me:"Hey boys" 

"Yebo" they all said

Me:"Can you guys show me Zungu household?" 

"Kwa Zungu ephoyiseni?" One of the boys asked 

Me:"Yes" 

"Just go straight the last house on your right"

Me:"Thank you boys" I took a hundred rand note and gave them 

"Thank you uncle" They all cheered. Kids are adorable yaz. I smiled and drove to Zungu household. No offence but I dont think I will survive in this rural area but at least they have electricity. I parked my car in the yard and stepped out of the car then made my way to the door. A girl opened the door for me. I assumed it must be the precious daughter  a family friend of my other cousn's friend

Him:"Respect my man"

Me:"Hey bra I need your help" 

Him:"Im your man bra" 

Me:"Can you please dig up some woman's skeletons"

I parked my car in the yard and stepped out of the car then made my way to the door. A girl opened the door for me. I assumed it must be the precious daughter Lindelwa

Me:"Hello" she looked at me

Her:"Uhm hi come in" I walked  inside the house 

Me:"Is your mom available?"

Her:"Yes" I closed the door 

Me:"Where is she?"

Her:"She is in the lounge come " I followed behind her to the lounge "Mama this handsome guy is looking for you" Nomthandazo looked at me 

Me:"Greetings"

Nomthandazo:"Hello take a seat please" 

Me:"I prefer to stand"

Her:"You will not do such thing in my house!" 

Me:"Ah well watch me" I took out my gun and pointed at her precious daughter

Nomthandazo:"Please dont shoot her please!" she said standing up

Lindelwa:"Mama what is going on" she asked with a teary voice. 

Nomthandazo:"You can take everything in this house please dont shoot my daughter" she begged desperately

Me:"How do you sleep at night woman after everything you did!!" I screamed in anger. Her sight made me angry I wanted to strangle her until she shit herself for the very last time in this world!

Nomthandazo:"What are you talking about?" 

Me:"Ohh please you know very well! Or you want me to remind you Im very good at reminding people!!" She looked at me and blinked her eyes. I pulled the trigger and shot her tv screen. They both screamed in fright. 

Nomthandazo:"Please dont kill us just tell me what do you want please" she cried

Me:"Why did you burnt your parents and Ndoni's mother!!" She gasped I caught her by surprise. 

Nomthandazo:"Ay I dont know what you are talking about"

Me:"You want me to remind you?" I pointed a gun at her. 

Nomthandozo:"I was angry I didnt mean to!"

Me:"Liar!!" I roared in anger pointing a gun at her

Nomthandazo:"Its my parents fault! Nobody cared about me it was all about my sister! Thandaza this Thandaza that! I hated her for being everyone's favourite. Even after she slept with my first lover mom took her side! Hate grew as days went by. I was so hurt and I wanted revenge I also slept with her boyfriend Fezile  that is Ndoni's father.  Ndoni was 10 months old.  My sister found out that I slept with Fezile and believe me I wanted her to find out and feel how its hurt to be betrayed by your own sister!!" She paused for a second and continued "She was so angry and shattered trust me that was the beautiful sight ever! She told our parents they disowned me. I bacame an orphan and homeless while my parents were still alive! That was so painful I burnt them alive! All of them but it turned  that night Ndoni was spending a night at Fezile's place that how she is alive. After the death of my sister I became close to Fezile that how we ended up getting married. I loved him so much but his heart was still holding on my dead sister. He couldnt stop comparing me with my sister. The only person that mattered in his life it was Ndoni. I started hating him too. I hated to be reminded my sister everyday!!" Tears were rolling down on her face

Me:"You killed him too?? You are so evil!!" 

Nomthandazo:"He had to die!! That was very easy I went to the witch doctor he gave me muti" 

Me:"God woman you are so evil it was not cancer??"

Her:"You know doctors and assumptions! It was not cancer" ukhohlakele lomfazi!!

Me:"You...you are going to die a very slow painful death. Your day will come and I will make sure Ndoniyamanzi will be right next to you witnessing each an every pain you will be going through!!"

Nomthandazo:"Where is she??" 

Me:"That is none of your busness. Leave my Ndoni alone otherwise I will report you and Im sure prisoners will be happy to be joined by skhohlakali sephoyisa esifana nawe!!" I clicked my tounge and walked out.
