I received complaints that i left Rumblings hanging and I beg to differ. I believe we lost each other somewhere somehow but some of the questions asked I will answer here.
1.In Rumblings what happens to Mudenda and faith do they finally get to co exist and raise their child?
Mudenda and Meladi came and made peace with Faith. This was probably the one time we had them all together where there was peace.If you read the last two chapters carefully you can see that all warring parties actually came to an amicable end.
Mudenda is a typical baby daddy unfortunately, he remembers his child when he wants to etc. The second last chapter was the first time i think where he bought groceries, something we have not seen in the entire book. its almost as though a truce was reached.
2. what about Amo and Reuben,Aurelia and her shenanigans, Meladi and the paternity of her baby, Lunga and his parents also etc.
Aurelia went back home. that was a very significant moment in that if you look closely at these IT girls in Jhb from KZN, going home for good is like swallowing bricks. Its the last thing they want to do but Aurelia in spite of her hasty retreat adapts very quickly. we tell of a scene where she goes to a fashion show in Gateway and that was our way of saying Life Goes On for her.
Faiths Mom finally took a parental decision by kicking out Judith even though it ended up in an unfortunate consequence.
The paternity of Rueben and Amo was never in question. We know which child belongs to who and already the law emphasizes that the correct child goes to the correct parent. She never had a choice in the matter. the question then became if she would allow Agnes to move in. Agnes lost her husband meaning chances of her going back there where she was staying are very slim and she needs a job and a home. Logic therefore would want her close to her ‘son’.
Lunga and his parents where a side story whose existence largely depended on Auerelia. Lunga and his father treated Aurelia like shit at the end. they threw her out like a dog meaning that she will never come back to them. that storyline showed that when you are the other woman you really have no grounds to stand on. She might have been engaged to Lunga but the damage she had done surely coming back to either men would have been stretching a story a bit much.
Unfortunately friends when I write a book, I prefer for the reader to see deeper than the words in front of you. Lessons come from understanding the consequences of actions, events and characters. that is what creates the depth in the story.
if you have any more questions kindly ask.
