Life is Just Not Kind

She says


She adds when I don’t respond “I have nothing to say to you” I say sternly

“Biko please”

She says and I sigh


I say and she leads us outside “Talk”

I say folding my arms in front of my chest

“I messed up Biko, I have no excuse for having messed us up”

She starts off

“Why Pamela?”

I ask and she shrugs

“I don’t know, I was greedy”

She says, I raise an eyebrow

“He’s an ex of mine and we recently reunited. He and I never really broke up, he just moved and…”

She doesn’t even finish her sentence when I shake my head no

“I don’t want to hear it Pamela so please just don’t ok. We done and there’s nothing left for us to…”

“Hey honey”

Yoza says getting between us and pecking me on the lips

“Hey baby”

I say as she moves to stand beside me, I don’t even know where she came out from

“Wow! It hasn’t even been a month and already?” She says

“Sthandwa sam this is Pamela, Mela this is my girlfriend Yonela”

I say proudly

“Nice to meet you. Rato it’s cold out here can we go inside, I miss you”

Yoza says squeezing my arm and leaning in closer

“Bye Pamela”

I say and we walk past her

“And that?”

I whisper and she giggles

“I thought you might need a little bit of saving”

She says and I chuckle

“Indeed I did, where did you even come from? Are you stalking me?”

I ask and she rolls her eyes

“NO! my friends and I had planned to come here tonight”

She says, I raise an eyebrow and I know she can feel my look on her

“Just because I don’t drink doesn’t mean I can’t go out to play with other kids”

She says confidently

“Where are these friends of yours?”

I ask

“Somewhere inside”

She says

“Lets go and sit with my friends in the VIP, you can text your friends to meet us there”

I say as we make our way upstairs

“this is kidnapping”

She says

“I’m not going to be in the club with my girlfriend and not sit with her”

I say and she giggles. We get to the guys and they are unable to hide their shock

“Guys, this is Yonela and babe these are the guys. This is Phiko, Baya and Dan”

I say and she shakes each of their hands. We then sit down together

“You look really sexy tonight”

I whisper in her ear and she giggles. She’s wearing shorts, heels, a blazer and a lace drop top, her braids are undone and her hair is tied into a messy bun, her make up is on fleek! She looks better than I have ever seen her but nothing like the Yoza I prefer. She texts who I am assuming to be her friends to come over to the VIP




After the little time I spent with mom, I got a call from Bandile telling me that they were leaving the arcade and going to drop off Bakho’s kids which was going to give me enough time to drive home and wait for him and Jay.

I’m happy that Jay and Bandile got to bond and got to know each other, I can’t remember the last time my son was this happy so I am automatically happy. As for Jay wanting Bandile to sleep over, I don’t know. I’m scared last night might repeat itself. Bandile this close to my neck is really making me super horny right now, I’m grateful when my phone rings. Yes I don’t know the number but I am happy anyway.

“Excuse me”

I say getting up to answer the phone



Says a baritone voice I have never heard before, should a man have such a sexy voice?

“Uhh… May I ask who this is?”

I say, I’m standing in front of the sliding door and I can feel Bandile’s eyes on me

“In just a few hours you’ve already forgotten me”

The person says and I still have no clue

“I am sorry but…”

I don’t even finish my sentence

“It’s Khaya”

He says and I can’t help the smile

“Uhhm… how did you get my number?” I ask and he chuckles

“At this age you still ask that question? How about we grab lunch tomorrow and get to know each other better?”

He says in a suggestive yet very corky tone, I giggle unintentionally

“I’ll have to get back to you on that” I say

“I know you only start work on the first, we both too grown to be playing hard to get so can we not. I would like to see you, without your mother this time around”

He says and I am taken aback by his bluntness

“you’re uhm…”

I don’t even finish

“I am a man that knows what he wants or rather who he wants and you are whom I want Mihlalikazi Mbana”

He says

“You’re so straight forward a..”

I’m startled by Bandile clearing his throat

“Listen, can I get back to you. I’m kind of in the middle of something”

I say

“First say you’ll meet me for lunch”

He says, I take a deep breath and let it out

“fine. I’ll meet you for lunch. Bye Khaya”

I say and cut the call quickly turning to Bandile who has his jaw clenched. I take a deep breath and walk over to him and sit down

“Sorry about that”

I say and he nods, just then Jay walks in with a towel wrapped around his body wearing his slippers

“Shouldn’t you be getting ready for bed?”

I ask and he smiles innocently

“Can daddy come and help me get ready for bed”

He says directing it to Bandile then me, he gives me one last look before getting up and following his son
