Ndoniyamazi

.

I opened my eyes they met a doctor who was staring at me as if he have been doing so for quite a moment.

Him:"Welcome back" He smiled  I looked around I was  lying on a hospital bed. 

Me:"How did I get here?" 

Him:"I found you lying on a pavement. Thank God Im the one who found you" 

Me:"Thanks for saving my life" I sat up straight my body was sore. 

Him:"That what Im paid for..how are you feeling?" 

Me:"Im fine" my eyes glistened with tears I was not fine at all. I was still shocked about what happened last night. What if he is dead? Does that mean I killed him? Maybe I hit him too much on his head. I dont know why I was feeling sorry for him. The man molested me like that was not enough he wanted to do it again I had to do something to save myself. 

Him:"Dont cry you are safe now" I didnt even realize I was crying. I wiped my tears vigirously. "What is your name?" 

Me:"Ndoni..Ndoniyamanzi Zungu" 

Hi:"Where do you stay?" 

Me:"Vedriet"

Him:"Where is that?"

Me:"Dannhauser"

Him:"Oh how did you ended up at Madadeni?" 

Me:"I dont know  I woke up at his place"

Him:"You were drunk?" 

Me:"No I dont drink. He took me while I was sleeping at home" 

Him:"Who is he?" 

Me:"I dont know him"

Him:"Do you remember his face you have to report him" 

Me:"I cant"

Him:"Why he raped you and hit you...how old are you?"

Me:"18"

Him:"How old did he looked?"

Me:"late thirties or early forties" 

Him:"Hhah  you have to report him! What kind of a bastard is that!" He said with a grimace on his face

Me:"He said he will cut my throat"

Him:"He is bluffing Im going to help you send that asshole to jail....Give me your parent's contact I have to tell them to fetch you" 

Me:"I dont want to go"

Him:"But I have to discharge you and I have to make sure you are safe"

Me:"Please dont discharge me. Can I linger please" I begged desperately I didnt want to go home. I rather stay in the hospital than home. That place is not home but its hell. 

Him:"Your parents should be worried about you. Let me take you home"

Me:"I dont want to go home I hate it there!" I let out a loud sob. 

Him:"Im sorry please dont cry" He wrapped his hands around me and that made me uncomfortable. I pushed him  "Sorry I didnt mean to make you feel uncomfortable...come with me than" 

Me:"Let me stay here please" I sobbed

Him:"I know you are scared but I promise I wont hurt you come with me. You can stay with me as long as you want" He sounded so sincere but I was scared what if he hurt me? He was a stranger after all "I wouldnt save you if I was  heartless please trust me." I nodded reluctantly. "Wait here" He walked out and came back minutes later. "Here" He gave me a little container that had different tablets inside and a glass of water. I took it and threw the tablets in my mouth than drank water. I placed the container and the glass on the table. "We can go now"  I removed the blankets from me and rolled down. He was looking at me as I did so. We both walked out. He told me to wait at the waiting room he needed to get some of his things. Few minutes later I saw him coming. "Elizabeth please call Dr Zwide to come I have a crisis to deal with" 

"Okay Dr Sithole" replied the receptionist. 

Him:"We can go now Miss Zungu" We exited and walked to his car. I dont know cars but I could tell that his car was expensive. It was a really beautiful black car. He opened the passenger door for me. I stepped inside carefully. He closed it and went to the other side got inside and started the engine. The interior of the car was beautiful and comfortable. "Im harmless relax" he said driving out. "Im Nhlonipho" 

Me:"Uhm ok" 

Him:"Do you mind to tell me why you dont want to go home?" 

Me:"Its horrible there." 

Him:"How horrible?" 

Me:"Tripple horrible" He chuckled 

Him:"Can you be specific if you dont mind" 

Me:"Its a long story but to be short im a victim of rape because of my mom" 

Him:"How I dont understand?" He looked at me

Me:"Can we talk about something else please" I was really not in a mood to talk about how cruel Nomthandazo is.

Him:"Uhm  sorry" His eyes focused on the road we drove silently until we arrived at superspar "I will go  inside if you dont mind to wait for a moment"

Me:"No I dont" 

Him:"What do you want me to buy for you"

Me:"Nothing" He looked at me then stepped out of the car and walked to superspar. I was in a debate with myself I felt like I made a huge mistake by agreeing to go with him. What if he is working for mom he is just playing me so that I wont notice.  I didnt know where should I press or pull to open the door. I couldnt take the feeling I wanted him to find me gone. I pressed the botton on the door the window opened and startled me. God!  I pressed another one nothing happened. I huffed and tried one last botton then there was "haxa" sound but still the door didnt open. I sighed cars these days ay ngiyabonga mina zikwenza uzwizwe sengathi udom. My daddy use to own a 1400 it was simple without all of these useless bottons! You must be asking yourself where it is now. Nomthandazo sold it and ate all that money with her precious daughter I didnt even get a penny. He came back as I was trying to get myself out of the car. He got inside and gave me  two carrier bags

Him:"These are yours please have a 100% juice now you need it" I peeked inside the carrier bags one had toiletries including pads and other one had all the yummy things I last ate 3 years back. 

Me:"Thank you" 

Him:"Drink 100% juice now. When last did you ate food?" He started the car

Me:"Two days ago"

Him:"Tjo why?" He drove off

Me:"Umama ebekufihla" 

Him:"Whaat? Why did she do that"

Me:"She was enjoying to see me starving" 

Him:"Haibo kanti umama wakho unjani?" 

Me:"Abusive cruel devious malicious its a endless list" 

Him:"Why? is she your mom though?"

Me:"Yes"

Him:"Is she crazy  upstairs or what?"

Me:"I dont know buti"  

Him:"Mxm!! you are never going back there I will take care of you" 

Me:"Thank you for these buti" I said sipping on my juice. 

Him:"Ah its nothing" I saw the board written "Wecome to Aviary Hill" 

Me:"The ambiance of this place is peaceful"

Him:"That's Aviary Hill for you" He pulled off next to the beautiful enormous double storey. He took something from the glove box and pressed it then the gate opened. He drove inside and parked the car in a drive yard.  "This is your new home" My heart started beating fast 

Me:"What will your parents say buti?"

Him:"This is my house my parents live in Durban and please call me Nhlonipho" 

Me:"Okay buti" he chuckled. I was scared shame

devious malicious its a endless list" 

Him:"Why? is she your mom though?"

Me:"Yes"

Him:"Is she crazy  upstairs or what?"

Me:"I dont know buti"  

Him:"Mxm!! you are never going back there I will take care of you" 

Me:"Thank you for these buti" I said sipping on my juice. 

Him:"Ah its nothing" I saw the board written "Wecome to Aviary Hill" 

Me:"The ambiance of this place is peaceful"

Him:"That's Aviary Hill for you" He pulled off next to the beautiful enormous double storey. He took something from the glove box and pressed it then the gate opened. He drove inside and parked the car in a drive yard.  "This is your new home" My heart started beating fast 

Me:"What will your parents say buti?"

Him:"This is my house my parents live in Durban and please call me Nhlonipho" 

Me:"Okay buti" he chuckled. I was scared shame my heart was calling gugu. He stepped out of the car and opened the door for me. I stepped out then he close it. 

Him:"Come" We walked inside the house yhoo mzala the house was exquisite and spotless I felt dirty to be inside of it.

Me:"Wow" I whispered

Him:"Allow me to show you around Miss Zungu"  We walked inside my eyes couldn't stop roaming around the house admiring the beautifulness of it. The furniture mzala screamed "extravagant" we walked upstairs and entered one of the room. "This is your bedroom" it was a beautiful spacious bedroom with a build in greyish closet.The room was too big for me if I must say. "Do you want me to change anything in this room?"

Me:"No I like it the way it is" He smiled 

Him:"Let's me show you the bathroom" We walked out and went to the bathroom "This is the bathroom as you can see  everything." I couldn't help but notice that the taps were not the ordinary ones where you twist them and the water comes out. 

Me:"Yes I can see" 

Him:"Its will be up to you if you want to use a shower or a bathtub" I nodded 

Me:"Do you mind if you show me how do you open the taps buti" 

Him:"No of course not...you open them like this" he said opening one of the tap. "This tap is for hot water and that have cold water" 

Me:"Mhh..do you have a problem if I take a bath now buti" 

Him:"Ndoni please call me Nhlonipho and no I don't have a problem please feel at home" I nodded "I will run you a bath while I show you around" He said letting the taps pouring water. We walked out he showed me his bedroom which was next to the one he said was mine and the other rooms the lounge the sitting room balcony etc. I repeat mzala yinhle indlu ngathi ikwamlungu. After he showed me all the rooms I went to take the bath. It felt like I haven't had a bath in years. After that I went to the bedroom he said its mine. The were clothes on top of the bed and a pack of new panties. I applied  lotion to my body.I  took a pad from the plastic and and use it then I got dressed. I looked good and the clothes fitted me perfectly. I felt like I was wearing new clothes because I can't remember the last time I wore new clothes. I looked myself in the mirror and I saw this broken dark skinned girl staring back at me. I smiled at her and she smiled too but I could see pain through her white pure eyes. I could see an excruciating wound in her soul in her heart that was caused by answered questions. Why was she treated like that by her own mom. Was it because she is ugly and dark skinned? Was it because her father died of cancer? Was it because  she doesnt date just like other teenagers? I saw tears rushing down her cheeks. 

"I hope you dont mind those clothes belong to my little sister" said buti Nhlonipho as he walked in.

Me:"Nah I dont" I said wiping my tears quickly. 

Him:"What size do you wear I hope these will fit you" He was carrying pink slippers

Me:"Size 4"

Him:"They will fit you then..here" I took them and wore them. 

Me:"Thank you so much" 

Him:"Dont cry please" He neared to hug me but he stopped himself. "Uhm I made us something to eat lets go downstairs" Did I hear that right or my ears were playing tricks with me? "Come"  We walked downstairs and went to the lounge. Two plates of breakfast were already placed  on the glass table and two glasses of milk. I sat on the couche. He took  a plate and gave it to me. I swallowed saliva. 

Me:"Thank you" I took my plate and started eating greedily. I could feel his gaze on me as I was eating. "Uhm sorry"

Him:"Dont be I understand" I carried on eating as if kukhona umuntu ongiphangelayo then drank my milk. "What do you want to watch" He said flippling through the channels" 

Me:"Anything" I said with food in my mouth. 

Him:"I think  I have an idea" He got up and searched through the dvds "find it I hope you will like it" he played the movie.  

Me:"I have watched this movie once but I didnt finish it" The title of a movie was pitch perfect. I fall inlove with it the first time I watched it sadly I didnt finish it because Princess Lindelwa wanted to watch one of her boring shows. 

Him:"Its my little sister's favourite movie. She is 18 too so I think you will like it too" 

We watched the movie while eating. Dzang mzala the movie was epic. I wish to meet the crew behind the camera and the cast and shake their hands. Im that kind of a person who like to concentrate  when I watch a movie. I dont want to miss even a single word but buti Nhlonipho couldnt stop talking.

Him:"Are you schooling"

Me:"Yes" 

Him:"What grade?"

Me:"12"

Him:"which subjects"

Me:"General"

Him:"What do you wanna be? I shrugged "You dont know what you wanna be?" 

Me:"Yes" 

Him:"You talked about your mom where is your dad?" 

Me:"He died"

Him:"Oh Im sorry to hear that" I looked at him and said nothing. I guess he realized that he was asking too much questions in 3 seconds because he stopped asking and let me be. We spent the whole day watching movies and having the yummy things he bought at superspar. It felt good to not  think about my sad life for hours. Buti Nhlonipho seemed like a nice guy or was he  buying time?

Me:"You found me in township but you live in suburbs "

Him:"My girlfriend live in the township. I was on my way to fetch her when I found you"

Me:"Mmh"

Him:"I wont hurt you Ndoni please trust me"

Me:"Please dont be offended its just that Im not used to be treated nice. To me its feels too good to be true" 

Him:"I understand you will realize as time goes by that im not a bad persom. It broke my heart to saw you lying there I thought of my little sister" 

Me:"Your sister stay here?"

Him:"No she stay with my parents but she visit me each an every time she gets" 

Me:"Mh how old are you buti?" I couldnt help but ask

Him:"26 years" He looked younger though. 

Me:"Mh" 

At night he ordered pizza. We ate and sipping on coke while watching  tv. We were watching Isibaya. I love Mkabayi uyawushuka umoya wami jehova.

A while later...

Him:"I didnt find my little sis's pjs  I found the night dress"

Me:"Its fine thank you" I took the night dress.

Him:"Goodnight if you need anything Im right next you" 

Me:"Okay goodnight" He smiled and walked out. I unclothed and put on the night dress then jumped into bed. I left the light on. I wanted to pray but I was still angry at God. It all came back I cried myself to sleep. In the middle of my sleep I felt the bed moving. I opened my eyes it was buti Nhlonipho. 

Me:"Buti what are you doing here" He said nothing and slid next to me. 

Him:"Sshh" He brushed my thighs

Me:"Buti no dont do that please" I removed his hands from my thighs. 

Him:"It how it is my angel" He squeezed my breast 

Me:"No leave me alone!" I started crying 

Him:"Hey! Stop making noise you will wake the neigbours!" He shouted while getting on top of me. 

Me:"Please Im begging you dont.."

Him:"Im sorry my angel" He slid my panties aside and went inside with too much force. 

Me:"Nooo" I screamed in anguish pinching him. He pressed my arms on the bed with his hands and moved back and forth penetrating deep. I knew it! How could I have let this happen. 

Him:"Ohhh Ndoni" He moaned increasing his pace. It hurt so much I screamed in agony. What did I do to deserve this pain. I wanted to die right there! Take me Lord please this is too much. Men keep doing as they please with my body. Mabebona mina babona into yokudlengulwa."Ndoni!"

"Ndoni!!" I jumped up and looked at Buti Nhlonipho "You were dreaming" I realized it was a dream but it felt so real.

Me:"You..." I couldnt help but cry 

Him:"Dont cry it was just a dream you are safe"  He sat next to me and pull me close to his chest and embrace me

Me:"Leave me alone!" I cried wiggling myself from his embrace but he tighten his grip 

Him:"Ssshhh its will be alright I promise you"
