That news felt like a hammer blow! She was dead? Ah Dear Lord why though? Had this woman not suffered enough. I actually felt sorry for my enemy, my wife’s boss because losing someone is not easy. It really is not. He had shouted that it was all my fault and much as I knew it was anger speaking he could have had a point. Dead! Imagine that. The world is cruel and this was something I had least expected. Going to jail simply is the last thing you should ever wish for! I told him that I was sorry for his loss but he was not on the phone anymore. Most men are like this, when you have her, you take her for granted, when she is gone, it is the end of the world. These are not crocodile tears but actual regret but in his case it took someone to actually die before he woke up! Too little, too late!
Life has a way of being cruel. The people that should die, like Asthandile have a knack of surviving and it’s always been like that. The ones that die are the so called sweet ones whom life happened to them. Had she not gone to jail she most certainly have lived. Who was to blame though? The daughter that reported to her mother, her for taking the law into her own hands, the husband for failing to keep his dick in his pants or my wife,the mistress who wanted what did not belong to her or me, the man who had thrown out his wife eventually leading to this confrontation. I lost all the energy in my knees and I felt myself fall to the floor. I could not lift my body weight in that moment. I had met her so briefly but she had touched me so much I even wanted to represent her.
Ezile! That poor child. I called Zimasa immediately to tell her. She said she had not heard about it. She dropped the phone but not before saying she will call me back. Ten minutes later she called back and said Ezile had not handled it well at all and that she needed to go be with her friend. All was forgotten at this moment. I told her to wait there because I was going to drive her. It had to be a very emotional and painfull moment and with the father at the hospital someone had to be there for her. I found Zimasa at the BnB and she literally jumped into the car when I parked. She was crying. It’s funny that with the way I wanted to distance myself so badly from this family, I was always drawn back in.
When we got there, there was a familiar car outside. By the looks of it they driver too had just arrived as she was still in the car. This was going to be awkward after the fight we had just heard. She did not see until I was literally outside my car. This is how people get hijacked in driveways, they don’t have a sense of awareness to look at their surroundings something that will take them but a moment. I walked in with Zimasa as Khanyi got out of her car. For the first time she noticed me and she cursed out,
She was quite annoyed that I was here. I walked into my enemies house for the first time and I must say his home was impressive. It’s a fact what people say then that money can buy you anything including married women. This man had money by the looks of it. The house was beautifully furnished and even though I was not so aware of brands and so on I could see these things were expensive. That’s the problem with rich people, they always want more! He had a beautiful home and a wife child and another on the way yet he had wanted more! Look were it got him! We found the door open and there on the floor Ezile crying. It was the saddest thing I had seen in a long time. Her father clearly had told her over the phone and now she had to deal with it alone.
“Aunty Khanyi! Help me! I want my mother back! Please Aunty Khanyi, please!”
She cried when saw Khanyi walk in. Khanyi had walked closely with her father so she was very familiar to her. She then saw Zimasa and jumped up into her friends arms. You would not believe that these two had just fought. Khanyi moved in and gave them a group hug. She sat them down on the couch and went to what I can only assume was the kitchen because moments later she brought in tea. Three cups, one for each of them and none for me! Very petty. she did not utter a word to me. It was interesting to note how very familiar Khanyi was with this house but I could not ask now as I was only causing more unnecessary tension by being here! I stood up and went outside. I needed some air. By right I shouldn’t be here! At this stage I was craving a cigarette but I don’t even smoke. Those people seem to find relief in the most stupid of vices and right now I needed that. I need a vice to fill up this pit in me. My wife was in hospital and I wished her dead! What kind of a self respecting man does that to a woman or another person for that matter? It’s no secret I wished her dead. I really hated her that much.
“This is Dr. Masipa from Groote Schuur, I am calling in connection with your wife!”
He said. Was he calling to say she was dead, please say that I beGged my inner evil self!
“Yes Dr. What can I do for you?”
“Sir we have been waiting for you. We need you here to give us consent on a few procedures which will limit her scarring and the open window literally has fallen to an a few hours since you are not arriving! We can’t do this without you!”
He said and waited to hear if I was coming or not!
The irony was not lost to me though at this moment. My wife’s beauty was now in my hands! I had the power to make her decent again or live her like this forever.
How is that for revenge Asthandile?

Hi Mike and Family,
I need your advise, I have a situation and I have mixed feelings about it.
I’m 29 yrs and I have an eleven year old son. I just broke up with my boyfriend four months ago( he’s not the father), our relationship lasted for three years. The last two years we’ve been trying to have a baby (he doesn’t have any children) without success. He started hanging out with his friends more and I’d see less and less of him as the months went by, when ever I was on my periods I had to be away from him just to avoid seeing him hurt coz I felt like I was failing him every time my periods started coz he made me feel like it was my fault. Then last August he asked for a “break” from the relationship, his excuse was that he felt that he was hurting me emotionally and he didn’t want to continue doing it. After trying for months to change his mind, in November I decided to give him the space that he said needed, only to find out a week later that he was actually dating a girl that he worked with so I decided to officially end the relationship. After that I became even closer to my first boyfriend who broke my virginity that I dated before I had my son( we stayed friends after the break up).During our 13 year friendship we always talked about getting back together but I was always too afraid to take the chance coz he was the ladies man. 3 to 4 yrs ago he started changing and started dating one girl at a time but those relationships didn’t work out, so I decided to take the chance on us in November. He’s always been sweet to me and he’s always loved spending quality time with me which is something I didn’t get from my previous relationship, even when we were still friends we would often stay up the whole night chatting and laughing. Now we’ve just found out that I’m pregnant with his baby and I’m really scared, we’ve only been dating for 4 months. I love him but I’m not sure whether to be happy and see this as a sign that we were meant to be together or if this is just one of those things that just happen. I’m scared that pregnancy so early in the relationship will just spoil things.
Please let me know what you guys think of the situation( Lol especially you JackZ)
Ps; sorry for the long letter guys, once I started my fingers wouldn’t stop typing lol
