“Will you join me?”

I ask her as I get up, her eyes are focused on my abs or rather what is below my abs. I chuckle and she looks away

“It’s yours if you want it”

I say with a cocky smile which makes her cheeks heat up. I smile and hold my hand out

“Join me for a shower, I promise I won’t do anything to you”

I say honestly and she takes my hand and slides out of the bed

“Don’t worry I trust you”

She says as we make our way to the bathroom

“Why did you cut the hair?”

She asks when we walk in

“I needed change”

I say and she nods

“You miss the locs?”

I ask and she smiles

“Sort of but you look grown and mature… either than the tattoos”

She says and I chuckle

“Why do I sense judgement?”

I ask and she shrugs

“There’s no judgement here. Just that I never imagined you with tattoos”

We wait for the water to fill up in the tub while we brush our teeth

“I don’t know, they addictive. You get one and then you find yourself getting another and another… I don’t know”

I say honestly and she nods

“They suit you though”

She says biting her lower lip looking super cute. We finish brushing our teeth and then get inside the tub

“You goin smell like a man today. Hope your mom won’t mind”

I say and she blushes

“I need to call her ASAP! I’ve never spent the night away from home”

She says and I chuckle

“Mommy’s little bird has finally grown some wings and is learning how to fly”

She giggles

“Whatever. I guess it was bound to happen at some point”

She says

“If I asked you to marry me what would you say?”

I ask and she looks up at me same time, we sitting in the tub facing each other


She says and I chuckle

“It’s just a question”

I say and she shrugs

“I don’t know if I’m ready for marriage yet but I would like to get married some day”

She says and I nod

“So marriage is in the books for you?”

She nods

“yes but all in good time. For now I’m just focused on work and my family”

She says

“I respect that and I won’t rush you. When you ready, say the word”

I say and she frowns

“You want to get married?”

She asks and I nod

“I’ve always envisioned my future with you but when you left I didn’t know anymore and eventually I gave up on the idea of us but now that I finally have you I don’t want to waste a single moment playing games. I want to settle down with you and give you the life I know you deserve Yoza”

I say and she heats up blushing, she gets up and comes to sit on top of me wrapping her arms around my neck resting her forehead on mine

“I love you Bikokuhle Lerato Mtwa”

She says and I swear I just turned pink from blushing. She leans in to kiss me, I let her take the lead as she straddles me slowly moving back and forth making my dick swell up with excitement




I make breakfast for everyone including Bandile, if Qhawe doesn’t want the food then she can throw it away. I got upstairs and wake my friend up and ask her to go and knock on Qhawe’s door and ask them to come and have breakfast

“you being weird”

She says and I chuckle

“She hates me and I am not about to disturb whatever they doing in that room”

I say and she laughs

“You sure that’s not the jealousy of possibly walking in on them doing it?”

I shrug

“I have no reason to be jealous” I say and she chuckles “Whatever you say”

She says and walks to Qhawe’s door while I head down. I’ve set everything up on the dinning table. I decide to use the time to call mom who tells me she went into the office and I should call one of the twins. They opening schools sometime this week or next week, I don’t know. I thank her and call Mange because she and Jay get along and if my son is with someone it’s definitely her, not that he and Ise don’t get along but Ise is not as talkative and Jay wants someone who will give him enough attention and answer everything he asks and Mange is that person. I video call her and she answers


I say

“hey sisi, how are you?”

She says

“I’m good babe, where’s Jay?”

I ask, she turns the phone to him and they laying in bed together

“What are you two doing this morning?”

I ask

“Morning mommy. We were playing a game on my tab”

He says proudly, mom and dad got him and iPad. He has educational games and games good enough for someone his age

“That’s nice, what have you learnt today?”

I ask him

“Nothing I don’t know”

He says proudly and I laugh as people start to walk in

“Cocky now aren’t we. Ima don’t ruin my son please”

I say and they both laugh, Jay is too smart for his age and his concentration span is very low. My son is not the type to be taught something a hundred times in order for him to know it well and perfect it

“Is that Jay?”

Lara asks and I nod, she comes over and waves at him

“You took my mommy”

He says after they finish greeting each other and we both laugh

“I’ll make it up to you, what do you want?” She says and I cover my face with one hand “I want a car, a Bentley”

He says and we all laugh. Bandile and Qhawe walk in “One that I will fit in”

He says and I laugh

“But can you drive it?”

Lara asks

“no but I will learn”

He says quickly and we all laugh

“Honey I we have to go, I’ll come and fetch you later” I say

“Where’s daddy?”

He asks, I look across me and Bandile is sitting watching me and Lara speak to our son

“He’s here but I’ll tell him to call you ok?” I say and she shakes his head

“No, I want to talk to him now”

He says and Bandile looks at me and holds his hand out

“Fine, hold on”

I say handing then phone over to him and he gets up and leaves the table

“This looks amazing friend, I could get used to waking up like this”

She says and I chuckle

“No thank you I’m not moving in!”

I say and she laughs sitting down next to me.

“Arent you going in today?”

Qhawe asks Lara

“Nah, I’ll go in around lunch. I have the mother of hangovers! You should have came with last night”

Lara says and she smiles

“Nah I didn’t want to ruin your night. I’m not a night life person”

She says and Lara nods, Bandile walks in and hands me the phone

“Thank you”

he says and I nod

“So what did you guys talk about? He’s warming up to you I see”

Lara says as Bandile sits down

“Yeah, he’s a good kid. You did a good job raising him”

He says and I smile and nod

“He wants a bicycle because I didn’t sleep over last night”

He says and I laugh

“he doesn’t even know how to ride one. Please don’t”

I say and he chuckles

“I made a promise to teach him this weekend”

He says and I roll my eyes

“You guys are going to spoil my son and I don’t want him being a spoilt brat”

I say

“You grew up with a silver spoon and you turned out pretty well”

Lara points out
