“this is going to be blown out of proportion”
“You are so beautiful Audrey. I could just look at you laying here and do nothing. Just watch you be.” I blushed. Dingaan was in my mind. I looked up at the ceiling and blushed again.
The sleep did help alright. I felt like the Audrey I knew I was again. I grasped my phone and decided to text Dingaan.
*Hey baby. I heard you were here. I’m fine now, except the car isn’t. Just scars to remind me of the horrific night. It was a very bizarre accident. I’m thanking the heavens that I’m alright. I hope to see you soon from your trip as well.*
My lies kept piling up. This one we can blame it on Kamohelo. The car accident was her freaking idea. My phone buzzed, and it was a reply from him.
*I’m so happy you are okay Audrey. I was so worried about you. I will see you on Monday night, and oh…it’s a date.*
I still had Dingaan right on my curves. He was mine.
I noticed the jewellery box by the side of my bed. The diamond earrings he had bought for me. I opened the box, and I still couldn’t believe they were real. I have had expensive jewellery presented to me, but they were my favourite. They were really my taste.
“Eh-eh-eh!” was all I could hear when Wumi came running into the kitchen while I was preparing supper. We were the only ones in the house. Portia and the twins were still M.I.A, Senhle hadn’t come back since we diverged in the morning and Kamohelo was still out too.
“Audrey!” Shouted Wumi.
“Brant! Brant!” she shouted. “Where?” I said. When she ultimately reached where I was standing; she shoved her phone onto my face and it was news-24 article. It read: “Dj Brant arrested for assaulting his girlfriend.”
My hair tips went up.
“Weigh-neh! Oh My God!…what the?” I reacted startled. “They say he hit Pontso at her house after Bontle’s party when she confronted him about sleeping with other girls. They say he was so drunk!” Omowumi said with a wicked and an amused expression.
“Wow really?” I then immediately said- “But…but, that doesn’t make sense because he was sober when he dropped me off here last night.”
“Well they say he was,”
“Is Pontso okay? Did they mention? I can’t believe she would keep this from me.”
I hobbled to my bedroom to get my phone. Brian hit Pontso? Wow!
Omowumi followed me, – “Isn’t this a bit weird though. That the two of you got beat up the same night?” she said snickering.
“Wumi, this is not funny.”
“Barbie you got to admit, it is a bit funny oh! And anything that happens to Miss Porno is funny.” she cackled like a kid being tickled. I shook my head at her silliness and grasped my phone from the bed.
I dialled Pontso. It kept ringing. I tried again, and it rang until it went to voice mail.
“This is blowing my mind. So Brant is like in jail or what?” I said curious
“They just said he was taken into custody.”
“I really can’t believe this. They both seemed happy even after those nudes.” I clapped my hands together in disbelief. This is going to be blown out of proportion, I thought.
We suddenly heard noise coming from outside. I opened the curtain in my room. There was a white car next to the house; – playing loud music. Out of the car came the twins and Portia. It was the first time seeing the car; one of the twins must be seeing a new guy, I thought. Because everyone knows Portia will never leave Khakha even when he slept with her house mate.
Boy were they drunk. Still in the clothes I last saw them in when they attacked me. I closed the curtain.
“Portia and her two ninjas.” I said to Wumi. “Oh, is it?” She said flouncing out my bedroom.
“Wumi! Wumi leave them!”
What was she going to do? Beat up the three of them? I followed her; my limping was deliberately slow.
Omowumi wasn’t going outside to ‘welcome back’ the girls. She went straight to the laundry room. I could over-hear things moving. “Wumi, what are you doing in there?” she didn’t respond. Few seconds later; she came out dragging a horse pipe. What is happening?
“Wumi. What are you doing?” I asked when she passed by me. She kept quiet.
I opened the curtain of the living room to see what was happening. I was not too late to view Wumi splashing water on the girls and the two guys they were with. Water? Really Wumi? I laughed.
Before they realised what was happening, she was already running back to the house. She locked the door when she came in.
“Haaa! My friend!” I exclaimed.
“My friend, they needed to bath. They looked dirty.” she said gasping for air. She looked satisfied. Now she would stop making threats about “showing” them for attacking me.
