Another thought came to my head, what kind of a friend would I be if I left my friend to face danger all by herself, if she were in my shoes she would never leave me there she would come fight for me, mara Cleo leyena waphapha, why couldn’t she just call the police like a normal suburban wife, why was she acting all ghetto with thugs, they were probably going to take that knife and cut her up in pieces with it. I went back to the kitchen to go look for something that could help me fight them off even though every fibre of my being was saying run to your car and drive home. All I could find where plastic cricket bats that belonged to her kids, shit man, I grabbed a pan and followed behind her, nshe looked at me and whispered “are you planning on frying something?” I signalled for her to just go and shut up, she move to her bedroom door and opened it with so much force, what I saw in there will forever be engravers d in my memory, it was Cleo’s husband with their ex-nanny she was on top ridding him like there is no tomorrow, I stood there in so much shock that even the pan that was in my hands fell on the floor. Finding out that your partner is cheating has to be one of the worst things that could ever happen to a person but catching them red handed on the act is some traumatic shit that would need years and years of therapy to get over. As soon as the door opened the girl jump off Cleo’s husband and stupid girl instead of running for the door she started looking for her clothes, and was still putting on her panties when Cleo went for her with soo much force she stabbed her in the stomach I was still standing there with my mouth wide opened, Cleo had just literally stabbed the girl in a stomach, I couldn’t move, her husband was also trying to get dressed but when he saw that Cleo had just stabbed the girl he was like “baby it’s not what you think I promise” Hebana was this man denying what had just happened when we had seen the whole thing happen right in front of us, this denying code that men have has got to have a limit if you were caught in the act just apologize and don’t deny because the denying pisses woman off even more. Cleo tried pulling the knife out of the girl but it seemed like it was stuck, she looked at me and said “come help me pull this shit out” I couldn’t move I was frozen, she yanked it out and it came out and the girl screamed from the pain, her husband came from behind her and tried holding her back, she fought him off and turned around and swung the knife at him, he moved back and she missed, she tried again and again he moved back and she missed then he grabbed her arm that had the knife and twisted it behind her, this gave the girl the opportunity to run, she ran past me as I was standing by the door, I didn’t even try stopping her, she was bleeding and was holding her clothes and ran out. Cleo screamed at me, “hit her in the head with your pan.” I was still frozen I couldn’t even see where the pan was. I whisper “I can’t” Vusi was still twisting her arm the knife fell and as soon the knife fell he let go of her hand as soon as he let go of her hand she jumped the bed, Jesus the power that anger gives people is amazing, she landed next to me at the door and pushed me to the side then ran downstairs, Vusi was busy getting dressed, I followed Cleo downstairs she was soo fast she literally jumped four stairs at a time, I was right behind her but slower. The stupid girl was in the kitchen getting dressed, what is it with this getting dressed nonsense, why the hell not run for your life, you will get dressed when you are outside and safe but I guess she feared being seeing by the neighbour’s and since she did stay in the area people knew her and the stigma of being seeing running out of a married man’s house naked is not one that you want and once people see that they just know exactly what is going on. As she was busy getting dressed she had managed to put her jeans on and was now putting on her bra Cleo shouted “you still here bitch?” she looked at Cleo and you could see the fear in her eyes, as Cleo went for her the girl grabbed the bottle of wine that we had put on the table and were planning on drinking it. Cleo didn’t seem to care that she had a bottle of wine in her hand or maybe she didn’t think she would do anything with it Cleo went for her, everything was just happening so fast, as Cleo went for her she hit her on the face with the bottle of wine and it broke in Cleo’s face, I freaked out “oh my God Cleo, are you okay, I said moving close to her, all she did was wipe the wine and blood with her hand like this was no big deal. Cleo then grabbed another knife and this time went for the girl’s face she went stabbed her on her left cheek and while the girl was still in shock of that she went for one of her breast, Jesus Cleo was planning on butchering the girl right there and then. Cleo’s face was now dripping of blood and red wine I didn’t know what was what anymore but I knew this had gone too far I needed to step in and stop this nonsense. I screamed “Cleo, stop this now, look at you, you are bleeding.” Cleo was not done she was not going to let a bit of blood stop her, Vusi finally came downstairs fully dressed I don’t think he realised the mess that he had created until he laid eyes on his girlfriend and saw what she looked like , he grabbed Cleo and twisted her arm again the knife fell and his girlfriend got an opportunity to run outside, I was grateful to Vusi coming downstairs because Cleo would have killed that girl. I knew people got angry when they were cheated on some would even go as far as burning their partners with hot water or beating the shit out of them both but this, this was another level of crazy. Cleo shouted at me “Lee, grab another knife and let me kill this bastard.” Vusi looked at me, let go of his wife and ran, he knew if I had to choose between him and my friend I would definitely choose my friend. As he was running out he grabbed Cleo’s keys that were on the table and locked us inside.
