CRYING BLOOD, BLEEDING TEARS – PART 33 AND 34
Lesley is a dander head so he managed to stay behind and the following day we were
I was surprised to get home and find Ethan and Shaz there.
Shaz: Will be staying with you so far since you don’t have anyone to help.
Les: I have to talk to mom.
Me: Please don’t.Shaz and I will manage.
Les: Babe we are talking about two kids.
Me: I know.Don’t worry yourself.Now I need to rest since you are all here..Wake me up when they
give you troubles so that I can feed them.
When I got to the room i used to sleep in it was turned into a nursery. I was glad because there was also a bed..
I got on the bed and slept right away.
Me: How the f–k did this happen?I thought you had this under control.. He was gun man so he
wouldn’t have defeated you.
Stan: Stop shouting at them. You surely don’t know the Pilusa brothers. They have caution. Don’t
worry because opportunities are many. They will lose sight.
Me: That boy has to pay back every cent he stole from me. He even has to pay with his life.
Stan: The feeling is mutual so calm down so that we can come up with a very good plan.
Tendi: Dad I’m going out.
Me: I honestly think that coming this side with you was a mistake. Your mother is forever
complaining about you.
Tendi: You should have left her at home not me.
When the twins slept we put them to sleep in the nursery.
Me: I have to go and see dad just so I tell him the news. He was ready to make peace but mom
Ethan: Must I come with you?
Me: No you have to stay here in case of emergencies.
I took my car keys and drive out.
There was a certain black gti following me.I looked at its number plate and sent it to Ethan via
SMS then I called him.
Me: Bro I sent you number plate of a certain car following me..Please take a look at it.And make
sure my family is safe.
Ethan: This is a gated area so don’t worry.Becareful because we don’t know who it could be.
Me: I hope its not that man who calls himself boss.
Ethan: I hope so too because if it is then this is a wrong time.
When I got to my parents they were in the kitchen. Mom was cooking and dad was sitting on the
high chair drinking bottled water. He looks like he lost weight and he looks stressed.
Dad: Hi son.
Me: Dad can we talk.
Mom: What do you want to talk with my husband. You are the one who disowned us. You didn’t
even come and see him at the hospital when he had shock and those panic attacks.
I was suprised to learn that he was sick. I was never informed. Why didn’t Ethan tell me.
Me: I would have known if I was told. Dad can we please talk.
Dad: Come with me to my study..
I followed him to his study.
Dad: Anything to drink?
Me: Anything strong.
He poured us hennecy
Me: Dad why didn’t you call when you got better?
Dad: I thought you wanted nothing to do with me
Me: But father at that time it was because of mom.What really happened?
Dad: After the both of you left and didn’t even check up even once in a while my heart started
failing me..I just couldn’t handle the though of you and Ethan gone.
Me: Why do you let mom take control though
Dad: Your mom is a very too much full of drama so I rather let her be.What angers me is that she
doesnt even know anything about this industry but she is driving away the people who are
supposed to take over when I can no longer handle the pressure.
Me: Honestly father I have gotten myself in situatuins I don’t even know a way out of them due to
all this.I always thought that people become rich due to legit things but my wealth came about the
wrong way even with qualifications in my possession.
Dad: I was wrong.I was full of anger not knowing what I was putting you through.My aim was to
draw you closer but it pushed you further away.
Me: Father it is all forgiven..I actually came here to tell you that Rudzani gave birth to a boy and a
girl.I would like you to come with me so that you meet them and if possible name them.
He looked at me with guilt.He was happy but also sad.I could see tears forming in his eyes.
He stood up and hugged me
Dad: Thank you son. At least I can die in peace one of this days knowing that I have grandchildren
and I have met them.. let’s go
When I woke up I looked at my kids sleeping…We will have to name them.I already have Venda
names for them..Looking at them brought about alot of emotions.Why my mother would hate her
own child. Children are gifts from God.The most innocent beings ever.
I took my phone and played ‘ahuna zwi vhavhaho’ by Meskay
‘Ahuna zwivhavhaho u fana na u tutshelwa nga vhabebi
Zwiyavhavha ende zwiya pfisa vhutungu
Ho thoma gugu, na mmawe vha tevhela, ha tevhela khotsi anga
Nne ndi dzula ndi kho lila ndi tshi vha humbula, ndido vha humbula musi litshi tavha musi li tshi
Ndi elelwa mushumo yavho mivhuya ahuna zwivhavhaho u fana na u tutshelwa nga vho mubebi
Zwiya vhavha ho thoma gugu na mmawe vha tevhela, ha tevhela khotsi anga
Mmawe baba vho tsia ndi kho tambula
Mathupho alino shango o sema mano i dont see the freedom they talk about mbilu yanga iya
Mbilu yanga iya vhavha athidivhi ndi iteni nne
Ndi dzula ndikho lila athi wani thandululo’
This song mostly makes me miss my grandma.Why she had to leave me to suffer like this.It
reminds me of the father I never knew.Why he left my mom to treat me like this… Life was never easy for me but I hope it will be for my children
Mom: And where do you think you are going with my husband?
Me: Mom I respect you very much and I wouldn’t want to find myself disrespecting you with words
so please just let us be..Whatever love portion you may have fed my father to obey whatever you
say don’t even for a second think that it will work for me.
With that father and I walked out.
Dad: Your mother is full of drama
Me: Well she is a woman amongst men that’s why.
Me: Ndokhakha dad
Dad: What’s with the TshiVenda?
Me: Been in Venda for long hence.
Dad:I see.What did you do?
Me: Been cheating on mia vhananga
He smacked me at the back of my head
Dad: Why did you do that?
Me: She was always on her moods.
Dad: She was pregnant with twins for that matter
Me: Father I know better now.
Shaz: Babe what’s wrong?
Me:I’m tired of all this sufferings Shaz.I don’t recall any happiness that ever lasted in my life.Les
was supposed to be my redemption.He was supposed to be my happily ever after because I have
been living a Cinderella life.But he has turned to be someone who constantly cheats..Doesn’t
sleep home sometimes.How am I to live with that? I’m thinking of leaving.I’m thinking of going
away.If I stay with him I will lose my sanity.
Someone cleared their throat and it was Les with his father.
Les: Babe can we talk.
His father and Shaz took the kids and we were left to talk.
Les: Babe please stop crying.I am sorry for what I put you through.I promise from now on I have
changed..I know words don’t mean anything without actions but I will prove to you that I have
Me: Ndiya ni funa i ambiwa hothe hothe. I ambiwa namusi yayo ambiwa matshelo fhedzi nne athi
divhi uri ya vhukuma ndi ifhio nne ndi shavha u lwala vhanna vhothe vhaya fana (I love you is
spoken all over..its said today or tomorrow.I honestly don’t know which one is true.I’m afraid to get
sick because all men are the same)
Les: babe please try to understand that I’m willing to work on my imperfections.I’m willing to do
what’s right for you and our kids..
Me: No shanduka Lesley. Ndo farelela fhedzi ndo neta (You have changed.I have held on but I’m
Les: Babe its my first time hurting you.Don’t I deserve a second chance?/I’m sorry love please
Me: Can I please go and meet my father in law
I saw him smile a bit.Mxm typical African men to cheat expecting forgiveness..
He helped me up and went to the others.
His dad was holding the girl..
Mr P: This one is gonna take care of me when I’m old.. She will be like ‘Nkgono you are so
demanding.I didn’t ask you to grow old’ akere she will be a snob.
Me: I wonder what you know about snobs.
Mr P: I have grown your husband to be and trust me it wasn’t easy but Ethan was worse because
o la ena o rata dilo straight.
Mr P: Thank you so much makoti.For not giving up on him even when he had nothing to his
name.Even when my wife said horrible things to you.
Me: Its okay father.
Honestly this man did nothing to me..Wy should I be angry at him.
Me: So father can you name them before we give them names of our choice
Mr P: The prince will be Itumeleng and the girl will be Onthabisitse.
Les: Wise choice old man.
Me: And wena what’s your choice.. They will only have pedi and Venda names finish.
Les: But babe
Me: I’m serious.
Les: The boy will be Phuluso
Me: The girl will be Rendani
Ethan: Wise choice…Now we won’t be calling the nana hai it was even depressing me.
We all laughed.
Shaz: Itu le Ontha..Mmmmm.
Seeing dad happy was all I ever wanted.All I wanted was my parents to be proud of me.Mom is
someone who hardly changes her mind so it’s gonna gonna remain this way until she decides
Dad: Son I have to get going now.
Me: Father after all that you have done for us we have decided to come work for the family
company but mom doesn’t have to know.
He looked at us as if we didn’t say anything.
Ethan: Yes dad.We love you and we wouldn’t like to see you suffer for mom’s doings.
Dad: Thank you my children.
