You know at times there are people you try to pretend do not exist and you do this by trying not to think about them, talk to them or be in their presence. Khanyi I had worked so hard over the last couple of weeks to try and deny her existence. She too had not aid much to me in a bit and for a while I had allowed myself to believe that she had forgotten about me. Wishful thinking I know. You know how many relationships end simply by you forcing the two of you to drift apart. You blame it on time, money, work or anything else just so not to blame yourself. Usually at some point that person will meet someone else and they will accuse you of neglecting them not exactly cheating on them. That’s what I had been aiming for with Khanyi. Did not want her causing a scene so it was best not to go and break her heart if she had one and rather let her down gently through my actions. Well now she had changed the game!
I did not panic call her or anything. Instead I replied and simply said,
I am told that response is often annoying to many but what else could I say. Why had Lindiwe not called me though? Did this mean that Lindiwe had done all the talking whilst Khanyi just sat there and listened? Highly unlikely! Another thing that bugged was that Lindiwe and Khanyi had not gotten along from the time they had met. Why then would Lindiwe all of a sudden start opening up to Khanyi? Again that did not make sense. I decided to call Lindiwe. She was awake which I did not find surprising because I already knew she was superwoman when it comes to work. Truth be told a woman who works hard on her work is super sexy not just work hard on your hair and nails! There are women who will do anything just to look good no wonder why they end up dating sugardaddies so they can post pictures on instagram!
The first thing she asked me was why I had not been to work and I explain that I have been going through mariatl problems but nothing to hectic. At times it really is easier telling the truth as opposed to creating a lie which you will then be forced to try and maintain. Everyone our age understands what marital problems means and very few will ask too many questions as they know it’s personal and private. She sympathised with me and then asked why I was calling so late as it was not like me. I apologized for that of which she said it was cool as she was due for a break and she would rather speak to someone she liked meaning me! Flattered. I told her the message Khanyi had sent me and lied that I was clueless as to why.
“Please don’t tell me you have something with her too come on man that would be just sick!”
She said. Some questions guide you to how you must respond. She had already used the word sick meaning that obviously I was going to deny any involvement. She told me that Khanyi had indeed called her and asked for lunch to clear the air. She had denied her that request because why would she need to clear the air with someone who was not even her friend and she might never see again in her life. It did not make sense to her so she had denied. That is how the conversation had ended. Lindiwe said she did not want to deal with these ghetto mentality people so she was never going to entertain her. I knew why she was saying that, the incident between them at my gate. They had a grudge so I knew I was safe for now. We spoke a bit more about work and that was that.
So Khanyi had tried to trick me into telling her about Lindiwe and I. Yes I was now a step ahead but this was a problem. Khanyi knew something or suspected something! Why on earth was she so fascinated by my life though? Hadn’t Asthandile told her we are fixing things or had that been a trick too?
When I went to sleep I clearly had a few things to think about. I was tired though after all the things that had happened. Sex is hard work. I didn’t even see the girls. As soon as my head hit the pillow I passed out.
“Please go check if Pick n Pay is open. We need a few things for the braai!”
My wife said shaking me up! What time was it? I checked the time and it waas after 9am. Wow had I slept that long?
“Which braai is this?”
I asked her annoyed at being woken up.
“I invited Khanyi and some people to come through. I also used your phone and invited Dalu, his wife and that lawyer lady you went to Jhb with. Loosen up Mxolisi this will be fun!”
She said excited. My wife loved hosting things even though she hated cleaning up.
“But why did you use my phone?”
I asked her,
“One, because I did not have their numbers and two, it had to be like you were the one doing the invites so they can’t say no. Everyone invited confirmed so don’t worry your friends love you!”
She said because kissing me on the lips and saying I should get up!
Another day, new drama!
