I think I shocked her beyond measure. I shocked me to be honest because she did look that hot but I was not going to be seduced by her again. That’s like the ANC asking Julius to come back! Come on now! Lessons learnt!
That was her response! I had hurt her feelings and I was certain she would kick me out. She went back upstairs. I debated with myself whether to chase after her or not and apologise but I chose to sit. When she came back down she went to the kitchen without saying a word. Ok fine maybe that was a tad bit too harsh. I went to her and said,
“If you want I will move out in the morning!”
She was horrified by that statement!
“No! Why would you want to do that? I am sorry ok. I came off wrong and I am sorry!”
She apologised. Had I misread the signs.
“It’s just that you have been there for me like no one else and at this moment I would do anything not mess up this friendship we have struck!”
I said calmly. Lol, did I say ‘lol’ well I can’t help it, nothing sucks more than being friendzones. It’s like being given a blowjob by the woman of your dreams and being left halfway. You are glad that finally she has done it but angry at that it was not quite what you hoped for. It’s a poor man’s compromise. She smiled uneasily but I could sense she was cursing behind that smile. Picture that outfit on Asthandile though, Mmmmm maybe!
I went to sit down and this asset thing was making me think of her even more. I actually missed her!
Dinner was surprisingly very pleasant. We joked and teased each other through it. I did not want to rile her up after that insult. She was happy. She worked very hard to show me that she was cool with me. When a woman wants a man there is nothing she will not do. I helped with the dishes and we watched tv together afterwards laughing at stupid things.
When we said goodnight she went to her room and I went to mine. I took a shower first then started getting ready for bed. I opened the closet to take out pajamas. The wall was thin and I could hear her on the phone.
“… I love him so much. I think he will come around because I am going to be on my best behavior! This is a man you keep!”
She said. She went quiet which made me think that whoever she was talking to had gone quiet!
“You snooze you lose! She cheated on her man with that loser. I did not set that up. All I did was introduce them and I did not know the fool would fall for a married man. Funny thing I actually warned that he was a player and she said it was better than Mxolisi whom she called a wimp. Well then, why should I regret going for him?”
She said. I don’t think she knew I could hear her so this was no set up. It made sense though because I had suspected this before. No wonder why she had been so forgiving. I had sat down on my bed side when I got a call. It was Zimasa.
“Please come home. Please come work things with her. She has been crying non stop for two days now I am so scared. She does not eat, she does not sleep, has not bathed even. Please I am begging you do not do this!”
She pleaded with me. Here was a 17 year old trying to keep the ship from sinking. I felt a bit embarrassed but my mind had been made up. She told me that her parents were coming to intervene. They were expected the following day. I already knew how this would go. Her parents were not going to fight for us to stay together. Not them. They were coming to tell her that she must fight to take everything. I did say they were very ambitious when it comes to their daughter and in the eyes I had not been good enough. One thing that Asthandile had miscalculated greatly was the fact that by killing Lindiwe they had no way of proving that the baby in her was mine meaning she had nothing to fight the prenuptial agreement. I had to prepare regardless. As soon as I put the hone down an sms came in…
“Please sir do not humiliate my family. You need to pay damages for my daughter. We are mourning but we need to do things right. Lindiwe’s mother!”
O crap! This was getting out of control I had to do something before they showed up in my office or my home!
It does not even make sense!

Dear Mr Maphoto
Firstly let me applaud you for the good work you doing, your diary have changed lot of people’s lives including mine and still continuing to do so. Secondly please forgive me because my letter is long.
Well i am a 25yrs old lady and i have been raised by my both unemployed parents. I am writing this letter in a verge of tears because i have been experiencing lot of problems lately, the thing is i have started seeing my periods when i was eight 8yrs and two years later they stopped completely, i couldn’t tell my parents because i knew they couldn’t even afford a doctor so three years later after they have stopped, they come back but in an irregular way because i started seeing them once or twice a year and that was when i started having slightly stomach cramps and pains. As years pass by the problem start getting more and more serious, i experience lot of back pain, terrible headache, sleeping apnea, i get tired easily, my legs are always painful and virginal pains. I have tried so many things and am scared i will end up killing myself with all the medications i get, i went to so many clinics, prophets, church and traditional doctors but nothing ever helped me. Well i can’t afford to go to see a gynaecologist/specialist since my parents can’t afford it plus am still a student in the moment.
This problem is really worrying me because it started to affect my studies, i am a HRD B-tech student. All i ever want in my life is to get successful and get my parents out of poverty but it gets tough each time because my headache resulted to an extend that i forget things easily and became more and more painful each day, what pains me worse is that i can’t tell my parents cause it will torn them apart, i even thought of dropping out school because i use library computers to type my assignments since my most work at school is based on presentations and assignment but my back pain and headaches won’t allow me, sometimes my friend borrow me her laptop to do some of my school work in my room, its only two weeks since i started attending but i can’t handle the pressure the reason why i wrote this later is because i need advice, please guys please any advice or help will be appreciated. i run out of ideas on how to deal with my problem, i am tired over dosing my body with pain blocks and panado’s, dropping out of school now is not an option since it helps me with an internet to do my job haunting.
Sick and tired
