Women are evil! Oops did I say that out loud? Well it’s true we are! We can be the sweetest beings ever but deep down in every woman lies a little demon which if awakened can cause havoc. It’s more than just jealousy, envy, revenge, greed but something deep buried within us. I don’t know how else to put it. We are just animals like that when we feel scorned. It’s like that girl who believes that revenge in her old best friend is sleeping with her man. Yes to someone else it might come across as disgusting and low but when you are the woman doing it, it can be the most gratifying thing you can ever do. Revenge is sweet and women can testify to this more than men. A lot of men have been cheated on as punishment and those that found out to this day they are still not right in the head. They become self conscious and scared of their own shadow. That’s the power of a woman. To that there is an inverse, the woman you are doing it too will hate you forever and will probably dump that guy because out of all the women in the world why you? We tend too punish women more in our revenge than men which is why Meladi won’t know what hit her! She was too proud for her own good it was time to cut her down to size!
I got up to go check on Amo and I had the biggest grin on my face. There was a bit of light in my tunnel at last. Mudenda still had not mentioned his thesis nor anything about maintenance court. What was he playing at? He clearly was playing game. It was not two minutes later before a more friendly face knocked on my door. It was Aurelia. I had been waiting for her before Mudenda arrived but not necessarily looking forward to it.
“Was it Mudenda I saw driving out?”
Aurelia asked completely shocked when she walked in. Had I forgotten to tell her that the chancer was coming? I could not remember now!
“Yes it’s him! He just showed up! He thinks this is a hotel and you wouldn’t believe what he did…”
I didn’t finish the statement as I played my recording for her. Her mouth was agape in shock!
“No he didnt!”
She said at the very end. Rule number one in revenge by women is spreading the one. A secret stops being a secret the moment you tell the next person and better yet another female. By telling Aurelia, much as I loved her, I knew she will tell someone eventually. That’s why most women regret what they confess to someone out of anger because there is no taking your words back!
“So are you going to send that to Meladi?”
She asked me of which I nodded in the affirmative with a smile on my face though.
“That’s not nice though Faith. Don’t become this horrible person all on his account. What if she has a miscarriage or kills herself because of the shock of it?”
Goodness I had not thought of that at all. That would be a tad bit dramatic on her part though but with us girls I swear you will never know what reaction we make. Now I felt kind of bad.
“But she deserves everything she gets from me. Its not like she is some stranger who happened to fall into a situation. She was my friend who betrayed me and went after my man when I was pregnant and is now marrying him barely six months after!”
I protested to her. She had no idea how it felt every time I thought about what had happened. Yes I was supposed to forgive and forget but that is not something that happens overnight. I had lots of anger to vent out and she was not getting a Get Out of Jail free card from me. I am not the Alex court and she is not Sindisiwe Manqele. Bail for what, she had taken my man and she was going to rue that day. That much I vowed to myself.
“I get all that but just remember that those two are beneath you and you are wasting your time on them. You have bigger things to focus on!”
This thing of taking the high road doesn’t always work. Where is the satisfaction in that? She saw I was not budging and changed the topic.
“Please sit down and let me explained what happened and why I am begging you not to take the job…”
She said sitting before me. I looked at her closely for the first time. I could actually detect a hint of a black eye there. How I ask myself can a man lay his hands on something so fragile and beautiful. Aurelia was even soft spoken which really baffles me.
“I was at his place yesterday and I did not want to change my hair. He says I have had it for too long and I am embarrassing him. I told him that he did not buy it, which is true, and he actually slapped and punched me for it! Imagine for hair!”
Ok no offence but somehow I did not believe her. I know when I am being lied to and at this moment I had no doubt about this. Obviously as a girl you have to show support for your girl.
“Aurelia you know I need this job. Look at my situation right now. I have a baby and no job. I have no money to feed my baby and you know I would do anything you ask of me but this one I have to say is a bit much for me.”
I said as calm as possible trying to make her not panic. She looked very disappointed when I said that.
“Just know that he might try to make you a pawn every time we fight! I want to dump him but if you stay there its hard for me because. He might fire you!”
I had forgotten that part. I could be fired at any point if they fought. I didn’t have a choice though as that would work as work experience of which I had none. A mother has to know how to feed a child and right now for this was the onlly thing I had and could do.
“Please reconsider. You are my friend and if you love me you will do this for me!”
She said shocked still that I had refused. She stood up and left!
What was I supposed to do now?

CAN ALL THOSE WHO EMAILED ME LETTERS THAT HAVE NOT YET BEEN POSTED PLEASE RESEND THEM. I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DID IN MY MAIL BOX BUT I LOST A LOT OF MAIL AFTER I PRESSED SOMETHING. Sorry about that ladies and gentleman. MAY THE 25 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO WAS TAKING HER BROTHER TO SCHOOL, WENT TO UJ AND LOST HER FATHER (I THINK TUT) ALSO EMAIL BECAUSE THERE IS SOMEONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO HELP.
I APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE
I would like to remain anonymous please.
I’m a 23year old dating this guy a 28year old for just over one year and its been great. On the first day we met he told me about a child that he have but he’s not in the mothers’ life. That happened 4years ago. But I encouraged him to make time for his daughter. Our relationship grew very strong and he’s been talking about marriage recently. Last week he found out he has a 2year old son where the mother just rocked up at his place. He told me about it immediately since he found out about it and I was so shocked and so was he. Its not been proved with DNA tests yet but he believes it COULD be his. He told me they weren’t dating that time…just banged. I’m so confused coz im constantly thinking of how many other kids can also pop up. For I will then become a “step-mother” to all of them where I dont even have any kids myself. He reassured me that I’m the one he wants to spend his days with and never cheated on me since we got together. I cant help but have a bit of mistrust in him even though I love him so much. Obviously marriage is in a distance now for I have to be able to trust him again. Please give some advise of how I should handle this situation.
Please assist appropriately!
