Pregnant women should not have big mouths period! This is the stage of your life where you should be most protective of the little miracle that is growing in your tummy. The irony is, when women get pregnant that’s when they decide to pick the most fights. Why is that so though? When I was pregnant I made sure I stayed out of everyone’s way. I did not even want to take a taxi for fear of germs in the taxi affecting my baby. Yes that’s a bit paranoid but that’s how much I felt strongly about bringing any kind of harm to my my baby. With what Meladi did to me, she really owed me a lot, not that I wanted it. Now she was in hospital and am almost certain she was making a huge deal about what happened. That’s what the girls who ‘won’ do! They blame everything on the baby mama as though she is the one who made the man be such a dick! Mudenda was a dick! Meladi is the one who allowed him to be that man. Once a man is willing to live another woman for you a lot of things should click with you especially the fact that you can’t bank on him to be your together forever! Most men show you their true colours early on in relationships but we choose to either downplay them or completely behave as though the signs were not there! No wonder why we are always crying.
“Mudenda you know I called you yesterday to come pick her up. No one touched her. Why would I have called you if I was doing something to her?”
I explained to him on the phone. I won’t lie I was a bit scared at this moment because just yesterday the police were here and I was not too sure that I will be able to saved a second time!
“In fact why didn’t you come?”
I asked him come to think of it. When I called him he had not come to rescue his fiance. Were there problems in paradise? I know it sound petty but nothing makes a jilted baby mama happier than knowing that your relationship is not working out especially if your new woman is such a bitch towards you.
“Don’t ask too many questions! Stay away from Meladi!”
He said and he hung up. What had I done? She is the one who had come to my house unannounced yet now he was angry at me! Really though? Meladi hated me so much. A woman who is sleeping with your man can hate you so much when you have never actually met her or done anything to her. She will hate you for being the woman he loved first and there ain’t a damn thing you can do about it. Meladi hated me double because once upon a time she loved me as a friend until she decided my man was meant to be with her!
I told Aurelia what had just happened and she told me that I needed to stay away from those people. How though? They were the ones who came to my house not the other way round.yet I was the one who was being told to stay away. It was getting late though and I had to go. Something was not right with Aurelia. Her phone rang and it was a Durban landline. She moved to the other room but she did not close the door. I could hear she was talking to a woman who was quite happy on the phone. The woman asked her why she sounded so down on the phone but Aurelia quickly readjusted her tone when she explained that she was fine. I moved away from the door. I was so confused. When she came back into the lounge she did seem a bit happier though. She said that things were looking up. Her phone rang again and she gave it one look. I thought it was her mother again but the way she turned away from it and ignored it. I saw the name on the phone, it was written DOG.
“We have to go now!”
“I am sleeping at your place if you don’t mind! I am tired of being alone in this place!”
This was rather sudden but I ddid not mind. My mother would like to thank her in person in any case so why not.
“Ok it’s fine go pack!”
I said to her.
“I have already packed let’s go!”
She said. Ok now that was weird but I didn’t ask. I took my things and she took her things. She actually sounded happy not but her sense of urgency was quite impressive. We went downstairs and her car was parked in front. We put the bags in.
“Crap he is here!”
She said unwittingly outloud! Who was? I looked up and I saw my new boss. He was talking to the security at the gate laughing.
“Does this mean you can’t come?”
I asked her!
“Shut up let me think!”
She said. She then drove us to the other side of the parking that had no view from the gate.
“Aurelia why are we hiding?”
I asked her getting a bit nervous now!
“If he sees me he will ask me to stay and am so not in the mood for him right now! Don’t worry about it!”
“Let’s give it five minutes and then we will drive out casually.”
She switched off her phone. I did say she was acting weird right. I let her be. I took out my phone. Why had I not thought of this before because all the signs I think were there?
I found myself on Google and I searched,
“Signs that your friend is being abused?”
Before I could even read what came out on Google there was a knock on the car window!
Talk about the worst hiding spot!
It was him!

Thank you for reading this. I used to be one of those so called IT girls because I was dating one of the richest black South Africans. He is married and has two kids one of which is older than me. He is the CEO of a major corporation. I am not going to lie and say I loved him because it was purely for the money and holidays I went to. I started dating him when I was 19 in my first year of university. He had come there to give a speech on something that’s how we met. He made it clear from day one that he wanted me for the sex and trips so I must not have delusions of him ever leaving his wife. He told me that if I did not have a boyfriend on the side him and I could not be together as I would get emotionally attached. For the love of money and things I got myself a boyfriend who typical of our age lied, cheated, drank and once or twice tried to be abusive. In November I turned 21 and my CEO threw me a party in Sandton. In February he said it was over because now I was too old and he only wanted fresh girls (exact words to my face). Our relationship had been a financial agreement I know that. He put r82 000 in my account when we broke up. The problem is, two weeks later I found out I was pregnant. With my boyfriend we 100% used condoms but with my sugardaddy we never. I did not tell him because I knew he would have me get rid of it. From the day we broke up my CEO has not spoken to me. My friends, the ones who knew about the relationship are divided on what I should do. Others says terminate and move on and others say keep the baby and get maintenance for life. My boyfriend a week ago asked my friend to check for my ring size because he wants to propose. I am only 21 and he is 23 and doing his articles. I know you can call me names such as whore slut etc but that is my situation now and I have tried to be as honest as possible. I will not take offense but please advise me going forward.
