Is there anything more fulfilling or gratifying than seeing your ex who mistreated you suffer. I don’t care how religious you are but there is that little element of triumph. You know that song by Beyonce, The Best Thing I Never Had, every single girl relates on some level to that song because at times you really did dodge a bullet. I know I did. Now imagine if that ex is also your baby daddy! Yho! Even my ancestors are dancing! Ladies admit it, there is a part of us that wants to see our evil baby daddies suffer. I know it could be embarrassing to admit but the way we hate some of these men it makes sense that we don’t want the best for them. Once upon a time when they still called us bae maybe that was the case but now when things have reached this stage every girl knows that this is the best feeling ever. He was now a nemesis and the fact that he had hit me just made this feeling even more profound. So his precious relationship was falling apart? Good. I had no respect. Karma is a bitch and he was starting to learn this the hard way. I slept like a baby that night. My mother slept with Amo meaning I had peace. So much had happened so I was pretty exhausted.
In the morning my mum left for work. She brought Amo to my room and said that I was to cook oxtail because she was going to have a visitor. In the house I did say I was the best cook. We did not have it meaning I would have to go buy it. My mum works long hours. I was lazy to go buy it because it was actually kind of cold and you know how us black the cold makes us cranky. Judith was in a mood today though because she refused to look after Amo. I told her that mum had sent me to the shops and she said I must do what every other mother does and wrap him on my backs and go! Like I would ever! What? It was when I told her to give me the car keys that she changed her mind because she knew I was a terrible driver. I was used to her mood swings in any case so she will be fine. I went to the shops but was delayed when I bumped into an old schoolmate of mine from Tuks. She was a year above me andd had been studying medicine. Now she was an intern so it was good catching up. I only managed to go home an hour later. When I got there Judith was not there. She had said she had a few things to do so I figured she took Amo with. I have always said for a crazy person Judith was like the best aunt in the world. She loved my baby so much.
Oxtail! Eish it’s a whole of boiling. My mother called to ask me if I had bought it. What was so important about today. She told me she wanted me to make a spread so I must go back and buy some ingredients. I told her I had no money for it. She hesitated then told me where she hid her bank card. That’s my mother for you. She told me not to tell my sister where it stayed and I just agreed. Now I had to go back and it was even slightly drizzling. My mother asked me where my sister was to drive me but I told her she musst have gone to the shops or something. I was annoyed though. There was a car in the house and here I was walking. Fine it was not far at all but still. On the way Lungi called me! My bosses son! What did he want now? He said he was on his way to see me. I told him I don’t like people who drop in unannounced but he said he desperately needed to talk. The last time we had spoken I had accidentally spilled the fact that Aurelia could be pregnant with his child. He was not far. I told him I was at the shops so we met there. I bought the things I needed and told him that I had left my oxtail on the stove so we had to go back. That’s the only reason why I invited him to my house.
He actually was very helpful. He washed his hands and helped me chop and so on. I asked him who had taught him to chop like a woman and he said in his house there was nothing like a boy child. He said his mother might look all glamorous and all but she was a mother first. He told me how his father had cheated on her so many times and Aurelia had been the last straw. When he found out he wanted to teach both of them a lesson but now it was complicated because if I was right and she was pregnant his life was over. I asked him if he did not think that the child was his father’s meaning his little brother and it irritated him immensely.
“Don’t say that!”
He shouted. I can’t blame him. It must suck having your dad impregnate your woman but worse, he had impregnated his father’s makhwapeni. What a low moment in his life I bet! He told me that he was going to speak to Aurelia and if this was true he had to convince her to abort. I told him straight up that she was not that kind of girl and she would rather die first than have an abortion. She was my best friend and I knew her. He asked me how it would work though if indeed it was his. He pointed out how not only would her father dump her but also probably disown him. His mother too would probably never forgive him because he knew about the affair and instead of telling her he had instead also went after the same woman who had ruined her marriage. I got his argument totally. I asked him why he had gone for Aurelia in the first place and he said he had not. She came after him and when he discovered who she was all he had wanted was to punish her but things just went further than he wanted. Truthfully he had made his bed but I promised him that I was going to talk to her. We changed topics and started talking about life and working together. He was actually very decent and ambitious but ain’t all man. I promise you every girl has heard from a man how successful a business man he wants to be and heard several business plans. No difference here but he said he wants to invest in something simple if only his father could give him the money. The simple idea, chickens! I laughed so hard.
Eventually he had to go. It was getting late in any case but most of the ccoking was done. I decided to call Judith but her phone was off. I went to her room to check on her but she was not there. Something made me open her wardrobe and that’s when I panicked!
She was gone!
Her wardrobe was empty!
I ran to Amo’s wardrobe and his clothes too where gone!
What the fuck?
She had run away with my baby!

Firstly big up to Mike i am so in love with “Rumblings of a jilted baby mama”. Secondly i need advice and badly. I’ve been in a relationship to a perfect man or so I thought for 3 years the first 2 years we stayed close to each other but the 3rd year distance came in between us. i work like 300km away from him and we see each other once a month and sometimes twice depending on our finances, we call each other daily and talk like minimum of 5 times a day. Thing now is that he is cheating. some chick had call a few weeks back telling me to stay away from her man but i ignored it and thought it might be a wrong number until I decided to dig and noticed they both work at the same place. I confronted him but he refused and said the pictures where taken at some work event and there’s nothing more but the pictures not even a new born would believe that they are not together. Thing now is I decided to let it slide cause i just dont wanna believe he would cheat and i love him a lot so I wanna fight for my relationship and give him benefit of the doubt. My problem is how do I fight while I’m so far away and they see each other daily. Should I just give up and give this new lady my boyfriend so easily? If I don’t give up on us where do I even begin to patch the insecurities that I have now?
Sorry for the long read.
