Nhlonipho

.

Oh Messiah what is happening to me? My heart beats fast whenever I'm around her and my palms sweat like crazy. I can't think straight.  Am I falling for her? Oh no that can't be happening I'm suppose to be her brother not fall in love with her. I mean she is 8 years younger than me.I hate it that I can't control myself whenever I'm around her and that make her think she did something wrong. I decided to walked back downstairs. If she ask me why did I ran up like that I will say I needed toilet. Ya she will believe it. I took a breath and walked downstairs. I found her in the kitchen cooking. I stood at the entrance starring at her. She didn't see me she was busy cooking. I could stare at her forever. She is so beautiful her eyes make my knees weak. Its a pity she doesn't believe how beautiful she is damn she got another level of beauty. I have seen beautiful girls out there but Ndoni you should see her sbali she got all the right flesh in the right places such a matured body for a18 year old. For a person who  have low self esteem she can walk my brother. Each an every step she take make a statement. I'm absolutely sure that she doesn't know she have an amazing step. "Buti Nhlonipho" she said acknowledging my presence with her angelic voice. I wish she could stop calling me that. 

Me:"Hey what are you doing there?"

Her:"I'm cooking beef stew and pap I hope you don't mind"

Me:"No I don't" I swallowed spit and took a breath. She walked towards me and gazed at me. Oh boy I felt my knees wobbling

Her:"Its okay I understand" I looked at her confused. She placed her warm hand on my nape and pull my face towards her face. That touch alone made body warm "You don't have to hide it anymore" she was starring right into my eyes. My heart was thudding I think she could hear the sound of it too. I couldn't respond I was engrossed on her juicy thick lips. I wanted to kiss them so baldly. To tell you I was stunned when I felt her lips rubbing against mine that would be an understament. Kiss me already please I begged within myself. "Buti Nhlonipho!" I snapped out of my thought damn girl what are you doing to me

Me:"Uhhm..Yes"

Her:"Are you alright?"

Me:"Yes I'm okay sweetheart what are you making there"

Her:"I'm cooking beef stew and pap. This is my way of showing you how grateful I am for everything you are a brother I never had" She smiled she got a beautiful smile too. Everything about her it's so perfect. IsiZulu sithi alikho isoka elingana sici kushuthi isici sakhe impilo yakhe. Hearing the word "brother" coming out from her mouth cut deep into my heart. I don't why it hurt so much coz she is even calling me "buti" Or maybe I was thinking that she is calling me "buti" just to show respect since Im older than her. The way it hurts it was like we have been declared brother and sister by a DNA test. 

Me:"Ah don't worry about it"I said walking towards the cupboard and leaned agaisnt it

Her:"I have been trying to install facebook and other apps do you mind to show me how its done?"

Me:"No come I will show you" She walked towards me and stood next to me. 

Her:"Here" I took her phone and showed her how to install apps. 

Her:"Mh thank you"

Me:"Its my pleasure mtakwethu" She took her phone and place it on the counter table than she attended the pots. My eyes travel from her feet up her face. Oh Messiah she is like a piece of art.  

Her:"I think the salt is too much do you mind to taste the beef stew and tell me what do you think" 

Me:"Why would I mind its smells so devine" I said walking to her next to the stove. I tasted the beef stew. "Wow you know to be honest I was worried but I told myself at least I have medical aid. You such a great cook!" She giggled

Her:"Thank you the salt is too much?"

Me:"No I cant wait to eat" 

Her:"Its for supper njena" 

Me:"Aw ay  im starving already" I went to open the fridge and took a tub of yogurt "Im sure you are also starving lets dug in" I took the spoons then we started eating the yogurt together.

Her:"Why dont we sit down my dad use to say its very wrong to eat while standing"

Me:"Oh okay" We sat down. 

Her:"Is everything okay?"

Me:"Yes why?"

Her:"You are starring at me" I didnt even realize I was starring at her. My eyes like to stare at her automatically. 

Me:"Sorry...can I ask you a personal question?"

Her:"Yes you can"

Me:"Do you have a boyfriend?" I caught her by surprise I could see the way she was staring at me and blinking her big white pure eyes superfluously 

Her:"No I dont" 

Me:"Why not? I mean you are attractive and beautiful surely boys must be making a move on you" 

Her:"They are attracted to my bow legs not to me as a whole and besides Im too young to have a boyfriend" 

Me:"Mh okay" I changed the topic and we talked about random things.

Him:"Nci nci nci nci" he said shaking his head

Me:"Daddy Im sorry" Still my voice couldnt come out. I felt warm liquid rushing down my cheeks. He was angry and disgusted I wanted to tell him Im sorry I didnt have a choice. "Daddy please dont go!" He didnt heared me I saw him disappearing inch by inch until he was no more "Please come back!" I cried 

"Lindelwa!" Someone was shaking me. I opened my eyes that when I realize I was dreaming. I looked at my mom next to me who was crying and sniffing. 

Me:"Where am I?"

Her:"In the hospital" 

Me:"Oh" 

Her:"Is that all you going to say?" I rolled my eyes

Me:"What do you want me to say?"

Her:"God Lindelwa you almost died for christsake!!" She yelled

Me:"You are making noise dont you see that? I didnt die nje!" 

Her:"Baby do you know how it would have broke me to lose you. You should have told me we could have terminated your pregnancy  in a proper way at the hospital"

Me:"I had everything under control"

Her:"Under control? You almost lost too much blood Lindelwa. Tell me where did you get the pills"

Me:"Does it matter?"

Her:"Yes it does!" 

Me:"Ay I dont think so the rubbish is out of my womb so let move on with life"

Her:"Who was the father?" I rolled my eyes are we really going to discuss that now

Me:"You dont know him"

Her:"That's a reason why Im asking!"

Me:"Are you sure you want to know?" She nodded "Angifuni ke ulokhu ungicefezelela you are the one who said you want to know...Bheki" 

Her:"Bheki who?"

Me:"Your colleague" She eyeballed me her mouth gaping

Her:"Whaat Im going to kill that bastard!! You have to report him!"

Me:"Report him for what now?"

Her:"For forcing himself on you! Im really sorry I wasnt there to protect you." She sobbed. God this woman is slow

Me:"He didnt force himself Mama we are dating"

Her:"I know baby you are scared but you dont have to defend him. He is going to jail I promise you" She hugged me I rolled my eyes and let her believe I was raped because I could see that she was not willing to listen to me.

Nhlonipho

I was in the middle of my sleep when I heard my phone ringing. I ignored it but it kept ringing non stop. I fiddled my hand and took it then I answered

Me:"Ya" 

Him:"Sporo have been shot" 

Me:"Im coming" I woke up and turned the light on. The time was 3 oclock in the morning. I shuffled to my bathroom and rinsed my face and my mouth then walked back to my bedroom. I wore my black addidas tracksuit and sneakers. I took my phone and my car keys and went to Ndoni's bedroom. She always sleep with a light on so I walked to her bed and stared at her. I wanted to wake her up and tell her I will be back but I decided against it she wont even notice Im gone. I leaned and stole a kiss on her lips she moved but she didnt opened her eyes. 

Me:"Ndoni" I was just checking and it turned out she was fast asleep. Ngambathisa kahle then I walked out driving to Ngonyama's place. 

Him:"Thanks for coming R"

Me:"Sisonke Ngonyama" We walked  uptairs to a mini surgery. Sporo had passed out already.  Ngonyoma is a gang lord and Im a gang doctor. Im sure you are asking yourself why am I a gang doctor I mean my salary is good well I didnt have a choice but to accept the offer. He got something to use against me but that a story for another day right now I have a job to do.

I wore the gloves and removed the bullets from Sporo's tummy. "What happened actually?"

Him:"I asked them to search a girl uyamazi nawe uSporo ikhanda lakhe alimlaleli!"

Me:"What girl? are you human trafficking now?" I washed the wound and applied  ointment on the wound

Him:"No of course not. Im helping my friend" 

Me:"Alright" I bandaged the wound "Well we are done when he wake up give him the painkillers" 

Him:"Thank you so much R" I removed the gloves and threw them in the bin.

Me:"You are welcome.. where is your wife"

Him:"She went to see her mother she is not feeling well" 

Me:"I gotta go"

Him:"If its happen you see this girl please contact me" He showed me a picture on his phone. I looked at the picture saliva vanished in my mouth. I was starring at Ndoni's picture Ohhh shiit!!
