Simply put when those who know better than me said that revenge was a dish best served cold made those words they were right. I wish I had someone to talk to I won’t lie. When your life is falling apart you need someone to lean on and hold you steady together before you actually help it fall apart even faster. I think I needed someone to say that Mxolisi calm down before you make things worse but truth be told, usually when shit hits the fan you are usually alone to make it worse. This time was no exception. All this talk of revenge had made me gain an appetite but with the amount of work I had to catch up going out was not an option. At times I wish I worked for government because truth be told, you hardly ever get to take your work home. Government employment does not have that extra pressure of your employer wanting to make that bottom rand count. Khanyi called and asked me what kind of wine she must bring. Yes today I intended to set them up real good. Maybe I will see a chick fight after they attack each other. Men love seeing women touch each other with the one exception being when they do each others hair because usually it us who is paying…sigh! I don’t think I was worried about what Khanyi would reveal in the fight because I was gatvol of my wife! Honestly who opens their legs after just seven days! No man! This bitch had to suffer whether I loved her or not.
Around eleven the police from Wynberg called me again to remind me of our appointment. I told the man that I had not forgotten and immediately got into the car to go there. If you act dodge and avoid them they tend to immediately focus on you and I did not want that. Had to play it carefully. When I got there I made sure I was cheerful and actually happy to help. He told me they were investigating the circumstances of how one of their prisoners ended up being killed in prison. I obviously asked how that was linked to me because it was highly irregular for a lawyer to be questioned. He said that it was because of the victim that I ended up here as I had been close to her. I think he meant because Khanyi had been raped. English is more difficult than people make it out to be. I told him that yes the victim had been my friend and how I had responded to the hospital when this happened with my wife. I told him that the rapist had been caught when I was at the station as in fact it was the cops protecting her that told us he had been caught. He asked me why I had come to see who it was at the jail as that was rather odd and I said I had intended on sizing him up to see which lawyers to recommend prosecute the case as some people are slippery characters. He asked me whether I had done that and I said no because what I had found instead was a scared gay little boy whom honestly if he had committed the crime then definitely this world deserved to burn. There was no way I said and I think police got the wrong man. This made the officer very uncomfortable because it implied the wrong man had died in their hands. He was quite annoyed and asked me to leave we will talk later. Round one had gone to me.
After that went back to work. When I entered by the door I bumped into Lindiwe but she was in a rush. She said we needed to talk as soon as possible. I just agreed to get her out of my way. She was irritating and I wanted far away from me. I called a company I know, GabyMash Catering based in Seapoint, to prepare the dinner for me and that I would pick it up later. Dinner for two was intimidate so I made sure to have wine and flowers. The flowers were sent to Khanyi’s office to make a grand gesture. I am sure she loved that. Khanyi called and thanked me profusely but she said that she had to drive to my house later because she wanted to look extra sexy tonight. She said she was so excited that finally I was recognising her. Women! You gotta love them! This one though was on some other tip.
When I got home the dinner arrived. They set it up in such a way that it looks as though you cooked. They put things in pots etc and tell how to serve it. I was quite annoyed though that they had brought enough food for six people! At least Zimasa would have supper if she was here but Asthandile told me that she was sleeping at a friends! A friend? Since when did she have friends here?
Eventually I heard the gate open. I knew whom it was. I waited for the knock on the door and I rushed to open. I had wanted to come with her but things had not really worked out as planned. Oh well, I can make do with this new situation. I could see my wife was waiting for a war to see who this woman was that had the nerve to come to her house! I walked up to the door confidently and I opened. There stood Khanyi looking devilishly hot in a red dress, heels even make up done. I must say she looked like she walked out of a catalogue at that moment. Wow! It’s a pity tonight was going to happen the way it was because fuck I wanted her right there and then. She made me thirsty and wow what a thirst trap. I told her she looked super fantastic and she said thank you and flirted saying that I had only ever seen her coming from gym that’s why I had that look on my face! That’s true though!
My wife came quickly to stand behind me to see who it was and I am sure to go on the full out attack. Before I could let Khanyi in she said,
“Please wait, my date went to take my coat out of the car I didn’t realize it will be this chilly out!”
Huh, did she say date? True to form 5seconds later a tall muscular man came up by the bend holding a black shoal like thing. A date! This woman had brought a date. My wife seeing Khanyi though surprised seemed more relieved now than angry especially as her date walked up the driveway. She broke down into tears which surprised all three of us and came and hugged me saying,
“I am so grateful it’s Khanyi and her man your surprised me with! I don’t know what I would have done honestly!”
Khanyi looked at her and asked what was wrong and how she looked like she had lost thirty years. Yup, for women that means a lot, this age thing! They want to pretend they were not born when Mandela was not out of prison but we see you bae!
“I have been sick and Mxolisi said tonight he will surprise me for dinner and here you are…what a beautiful surprise!”
She said. Khanyi looked at me a bit surprised. The guy stepped in front and introduced himself! Waphapha that guy! Who does that? Even in prison you wait to be introduced! What the hell? Khanyi had brought a date to my house and the jealousy was killing me! Lol, yah neh it fucken hurt! Haibo!
Now I either looked like a dooshbag or played along. What the hell had just happened.
“Asthandile needed a friend right now!”
I said with so much sarcasm in my voice I am sure you could catch it with a seave!
The guy smiled and said I am such a gentleman and deserved a Bells. I don’t what happened but it just came out. I retorted,
It was meant to be in my head but it came out loudly.
Before I knew it I was only back! The jonny bravo looking guy had punched me flat out!
I have been married to my husband for 11 years now. Up till two months ago I had never cheated in spite of the fact twice he had cheated and I had found out, we had fought it over and fixed things. My husband has never paid attention to me since we got married really and after our two kids he stopped caring. I would understand if he was a beater because at least it’s emotion but my man does not talk to me even if I try. He is more miserable than me I suppose. I tried all those sex things you read about in books and even suggested therapy but he will rather watch reruns on TV. Our children barely know their father and have never been too a park or any fun place with him. He is just not interested. Two weeks ago I slept with a guy from work and at work. I know hey. Deep. I have never felt so happy and alive. I don’t want my children to lose a father but I am dying here. Do you think I am ready for divorce? I work and am stable?
