Chapter 16

Luthando


After he left I took time and reflected on my life.

I realized that I was with Melissa and tolerated her bullshit because I was afraid of being alone since I wasn't in good terms with my family.

The fear of not having anyone is what got to me the most.

I don't think after I found out about her sleeping with my own brother I was still in love with her I was just scared of not being without her after nine years of being together.

I'm not even mad at Mbuso for sleeping with her but I'm mad at me for letting myself believe that she was everything to me I couldn't live without her.

Now I just need to focus on myself and help Zizipho found her family then I will let her on on what's going on because at moment she has a lot on her plate she needs to found herself and who she really is.

The door opens it was my mother with my favorite snack

Mom:"Hey papa" I don't think in our mother's eyes we ever grow up we will always be kids. She placed the snack on top of the dresser

Me:"Hey Ma" she smiled I'm glad I came back home cause it's about time I mend the relationship with my parents.

Mom:"How are you feeling" she said sitting next to me I shrugged my shoulders

Me:"I feel okay I'm filling for a divorce" there was a little bit of silence and I know she was slowly starting to accept Melissa and warm up to her.

Mom:"I don't know the inside of your relationship but if you feel like you are not happy anymore I'm glad you are leaving instead of staying in a toxic relationship in the name of love. Sometimes we have to make a decision that's gonna break our hearts but bring our soul the peace it needs" I smiled at her

Me:"Thank you mom" she nods and stood up

Mom:"Try to eat something" she walked out.

I ate and contacted my lawyer to draft me divorce papers he was shocked to found out that I was divorcing Melissa but not all that glitters is made of gold.

My phone beeped it was a text from Zizipho it was a picture of a beach

"A day of lazing around at the beach with a friend and her son?" I was surprised by this text I don't want to lie but it was something I could use today I smiled and read it three times to make sure I read it correctly.

Me:"Drop your location" I texted back and changed to something that is beach friendly.

I took my car keys and another pair of clothes with my wallet she dropped her location.

Me:"On my way" she sent me a smiling emoji.

On my way out I bumped into Mbuso I didn't say anything when I approached the door I knew he was still looking at me so I turned.

Me:"Favorite place to hang after school bring the usual except for weed" he nods quickly with a smile on his face

I continued with my journey and drove to the beach singing along to some music.

I spotted them she was in her lime green full body swimwear.

It really did no justice to her skin tone she was beautiful I quickly snapped out of it.

Zee:"Hey you made it" she gave me a hug I froze for a second and hugged her back.

Me:"Look at you looking all cute in this bikini"

Zee:"Look at you with packs and muscles in that vest" I laughed at her craziness

Me:"Hey buddy" I said to Junior who gave me a bad eye

Junior:"For a second I thought you didn't see me"

Me:"I'm sorry buddy" I looked at Zizipho who wanted to laugh at sulking Junior I shook my head

Zee:"I'm going for a swim" she said running towards the water.

Junior:"I also want to swim"

Me:"Let's join mommy then" he held my hand.

We started swimming together to a point I started seeing how cute we will be as a family.

After we were done lazing around the beach we decided to grab Mc Donald's.

We bumped into a person I didn't want to see not today after the amazing time I had.

Mel:"Hey" she said looking at us

Mel:"Hey" she said looking at us we greeted back

Mel:"Luu can we talk?" Zee looked at me

Zee:"I will give you guys space" she tried taking Junior from me but I stopped her.

Me:"When I have time now I'm busy let's go guys" Zee gave me a look but I wasn't going to entertain it now we walked away.

Zee:"What's going on did you guys fight again?" she said as we are sitting down.

Me:"NO we are divorcing"

Zee:"Oh okay"

Me:"So how far are you with looking for your family?" she sigh

Zee:"I haven't started I don't even know where to start? What if they don't even like me? What if they gave me away because they didn't want me and here I am going back to where I wasn't wanted?" I took her hands to mine

Me:"Stop assuming the worse Zizipho try to be positive and who wouldn't like you" she smiled

Zee:"I guess I will found out then"

Me:"Well I will help you please don't refuse"

Zee:"Sorry to disappoint you I would appreciate your help"

Our order came we ate over a light conversation.

Zee:"Such a bummer this day had to come to an end" she said as my car came to a stop in her apartment complex.

Me:"We can do this again"

Zee:"Well we will see" she jumped out of the car. I helped her with the sleeping Junior.

I walked her inside and placed Junior on top of the bed.

She walked me out and we stood next to my car we stared at each other.

Zee:"You are married" she said still looking at me

Me:"You are not wrong" she chuckled

Zee:"Goodnight" she kissed my cheek and walked away leaving me watching her disappear to the complex.

Me:"You are truly the chosen one" I said smiling before driving off.
