It's been a week since the encounter with the king.
Tshepo hasn't stopped bothering me on my social media I decided to ignore his threat because he wasn't going to get my child no matter what.
I was hoping to see Thuso and Sandile today but those two you can't find them unless they come looking for you.
I decided that I would chill alone listen to music and drink some wine.
I was getting into my own zone when a knock disturbed me.
Me:"Can I help you?" I said as soon as I realize who was by the door he just walked in without saying anything "What the fuck!?"
Mbuso:"Are you talking to me" I looked at him in awe
Me:"Is there anyone who just barged in my apartment uninvited? What are you doing here? Are you stalking me?" he just looked at me then shook his head
Mbuso:"You are so full of yourself Zizipho" he said that walked to the kitchen. Wait did he just call me by my name? I followed him
Me:"How do you know my name?"
Mbuso:"You are pretty much famous you don't need an introduction" I just rolled my eyes "They will stuck and never get back to normal"
Me:"What are you looking for? Why are you here? How did you get in the building?"
Mbuso:"Why are you so chatty" I frowned
Me:"I need you to leave my house" he chuckled
Mbuso:"When are you going home?" I looked at him confused cause last time I checked I didn't have a home.
Mbuso:"I thought I wasn't stuttering"
Me:"Well I guess you didn't get your facts straight because this is my home I would like it if you leave"
Mbuso:"Don't worry I'm on my way" he kissed my cheek I froze as I feel the back of my hair standing "Keep well" he left
As a man your dream is to have many biological children as a soccer team.
With my wife's situation I can't have that but I still want to be a father to many children.
Today I finally decided to ask her to consider other options to have a child.
At some point I need a big family and I don't see myself going out to impregnate someone who's not Melissa.
So today I decided to go all out for us and prepare dinner for us.
All though it wasn't romantic cooking a dinner for us its a thought that counts.
Mel:"It's nice seeing you cook"
Me:"You know I have to spoil you sometimes" she smiles and sit down I served her dinner
Mel:"This looks delicious"
Me:"I hope it tastes as good as it looks" she took her first bite.
Mel:"it tastes better than it looks"
Me:"I'm glad how is the boutique doing now?"
Mel:"I'm working on things and I got two new big clients so I can't complain and the restaurant?"
Me:"It is running smoothly" she nods I suddenly feel nervous "Babe"
Me:"I have been thinking about something and if it wasn't important I wasn't gonna ask" she looks at me confused
Mel:"Okay it sounds serious"
Me:"I know we been through a lot lately and not only has your situation affected you but our marriage too. I know you want children and I also do with my whole life. How are about we consider adopting a child or getting a surrogate?" she looks at me blankly there is dead silence you could hear a needle dropping
Mel:" So you want another woman to carry your child something that I cannot do?"I sigh
Me:"Out of this long sentence I just said you only heard about surrogate I also mentioned adopting you know"
Mel:"I'm not ready to have a child Luthando" I looked at her
Me:"Not long ago you were ready to have a child Melissa
Mel:"I was ready to have my own child not to raise another woman's child"
Me:"This is not right. What about me? What about what I want? Why does everything has to be about you? Not once have you compromised for this marriage. Don't you think it's about time you also consider my feelings"
Mel:"Luthando you jus--" I cut her off
Me:"Don't be the one crying when I come back with a child that's mine in this house"
Mel:"Are you saying you are gonna impregnate someone else?" she said with tears streaming down her cheeks
Me:"We will just have to find out" I grab my keys and drove off I found myself going to a place where I thought I will never be at again.
When I got here I told the guards not to tell anyone that I was here.
I could not sleep through the night I ended up drinking a few shots of headache I feel like Melissa is being inconsiderate with this situation.
I tried to be the best husband to her and I love her more than anything in this world but here she is denying me of only one thing I ever ask of her.
I woke up with a heavy headache I stumbled my way to the dining room I could hear everyone chatting a storm as soon as I appeared the room went silent.
Mom:"Mbasa!" she said looking shocked "Is that you?" I looked at her without any emotions I don't know why I came here because I'm not ready to face them.
Me:"I'm sorry to disturb family time I just needed something to eat I will leave" I could see my mom face changing she is hurt by me not acknowledging her
Me:"Mama I'm mad at you" she smiled
Mom:"I do rather have you mad at me than for you not to feel anything for me"
Me:"I'm staying for a week"
Unathi:"Are you serious bro?" she said smiling I nod.
Me:"I'm not gonna pretend that what you guys did to me didn't hurt but I don't know who to run to at this moment I need both my parents not King and Queen of this kingdom" my mom engulfed me in a hug
Mom:"And we here both of us"
Me:"Where is my brother?"
Dad:"Doing his duties" I just nod cause I'm seriously not here for anything than to be away from Melissa for a while and clear my head.
