Men and women do not react the same to nudity. Women can do the whole disgusted look and even sneer but as man we stare. We fall in love with our eyes first before our minds even get to like a person. Women dont get that. The whole thing about your personality we tend not to care unless we are attracted to you first. No I was not attracted to Zimasa but truth be told she was very pretty in that Xhosa kind of way. I was staring at her not because I wanted to get laid nor because I was lusting over her! I was staring because of all the things I was going through I had my wife’s cousin to contend with. She stood there for am moment and am not sure what it is she expected. She then said out loud,
Teenagers and swearing. She seemed to petrified to move and before I could say something I heard someone say,
“Zimasa what’s wrong?”
It was a male voice! I immediately stood up and calmly walked to her room. I did not even run that’s the irony. She literally just stood trying to cover her private bits not that she did a good job. She must learn to shave this is not the village, I thought as I walked past her! When I open the door to her room as it was only slightly open I found a stark naked boy sitting on her bed putting on his condom. He did not look up as he said,
“What took you so long I was already getting soft? You should give me another blowjob to get…”
That’s when he looked up and also said,
He jumped so quickly to the other side of the bed and he too tried to cover his privates. Really? What was wrong with Zimasa really she had barely just arrived and already she was horny.
What to do now? I calmly said,
“Wait here! I am going up stairs to get my gun. This will take me two minutes. If you are still here in those two minutes you will die here naked with your dick in your hands!”
I was very calm in fact too calm. I started whistling “His got the whole world!” as i went up the stairs. I guess I was feeling kind of holy at this moment. Beautiful tune indeed. I did not run nor even show that I was so angry. I walked calmly upstairs. I could hear downstairs the boy trying to dress up falling over. I went to my safe and took out something. As I was walking downstairs I saw the boy run past me only in his underwear! See why we say real men don’t wear skinny jeans. He could not even get them on in time that’s why he thought it best to get them on outside my yard. Imagine getting caught because you were trying to wiggle into your jeans.
The not so smart girl still had not moved from where she stood. What was wrong with this child? did her nudity not embarrass her really. Come on now!
“Go dress up child and come here as soon as you are done!”
I told Zimasa. She could hear in my voice that I was not fucking around. She was already crying at this stage! Why do women cry when questioned? I had not hit her nor touched her. Infact all I had done was ask her to dress. She went to her room and came out wrapped in a morning gown. You know those thick ones which look like they are designed for winter but black people, especially mothers wear them even in summer. Yes that one. she was still naked underneath as evidenced by her naked thigh when she sat down. She was trying to cover it up not that I was looking. It’s funny when you think about it, everyone is naked underneath their clothes but as a guy you only get turned on if the bra and panties are missing! Mmmmm! Food for thought!
“You have only been here for 24 hours and already you are having sex in my house? Who is that boy?”
I asked her not that I really wanted to know! In all honesty no one wants to know who is shagging their little sister or niece. That’s nasty on so many levels.
“He is just a boy I know from home. He goes to UCT and I thought we could just have some fun!”
Since when was sex a means of entertainment. I am not saying I grew up in a cave but even in my day sex was given a bit more respect. Ok I lie, sex was always sex and we all did it but you don’t tell a child that.
“That is not an excuse. Do you want to go back to Mdantsane with your aunt and uncle! They are still here! Do you want to leave with them?”
She looked down and for a moment there I thought she would say yes which would have been awkward.
“No I don’t want to go back. They will kill me if I go back home!”
She said. She was not lying either. Zimasa was coming to stay with us because she had slept with the wrong woman’s man and Xhosa women don’t play like that. She had to leave town.
“I am not going to tell Asthandile what you did nor your aunt and uncle but this should be the last time this happens.”
I said standing up about to take back the thing I had taken out of my safe. She was stunned by the fact that I was not going to be yet another adult to beat her up or threaten her or sell her out. Weird really the things that teenagers value. 17 years old and already a thoroughbred to men! She jumped up to hug me and in her momentum the morning gown open meaning by the time she had her arms around me it was her naked body on me. She quickly said sorry and ran to her room. It was a genuine mistake and no she had not tried to seduce me. A genuine but glorious mistake.
I decided to lie down and not think about everything but it was hard to. My wife called about thirty minutes later and said,
“Baby, Khanyi is moving in with us today. They released her early. Thank you so much for being so understanding”
I don’t think I had much of a say in it so all I said was ok.
Truth be told, this was just opening a new chapter to my drama!

Thank you for reading my letter. I am 31 and male from Mpumalanga. I have been dating the same girl for five years now and I am ready to propose. She graduated last year but she is still looking for a job. I work. The problem is that she is saying she needs to get a job first before settling down because marriage will tie her down. It feels like a slap in the face because I helped fund her studies after he father died. I am not saying she would not be here without me but that for her to feel I will tie her down is harsh. We have been planning marriage for years and all this changed after graduation. Please help me understand if I was being used because talk like that comes from someone ready to move on!
