Blind in love
I couldn’t believe that they just kissed. He’s never even taken me out in the park. I turned and walked as fast as I could. I was trying to contain my tears. I passed the spot where Simon sells. He ran after me and stopped me.
Simon:Are you okay Nan?
I turned to face him and he could see I wanted to cry so he hugged me. I cried.
Nancy:It’s Sizwe he is cheating.
Simon: Don’t cry he doesn’t deserve you. There are a lot of guys who would die to
Nancy:Show me one.
He kept quiet.
Simon:I have an idea.
He took his wheelbarrow which was almost sold out. Only 2 strawberries were left.
Simon:Sit down on the wheelbarrow.
Nancy:Are you insane?
He pushed me and it was fun. I forgot about Sizwe for a while. We went all the way home. I got off at my gate.
Nancy:(Laughing ) That was fun
We go and sit under the tree next to my house. I take one strawberry and give him the other. Funny enough I didn’t notice how Simon was a good friend I spent all my time with Sizwe.
Simon:You are funny you know
Nancy:No you are
Nancy: Thanks Simon for brightening my day.
We were close to kissing when I saw Sizwe. I went to him.
Nancy:You cheating scumbag!
Sizwe:Chill pill girl…what’s wrong?
Nancy: I saw you kissing another girl!
Sizwe:She kissed me.
Nancy: And you didn’t pull back.
Sizwe: Seriously how long were you there?
Nancy: I…I walked away after seeing you guys kiss.
Sizwe: Exactly I did pull back
He holds my waist.
Sizwe:I wouldn’t cheat on you Sthandwa sam
He kisses me deeply. I don’t even enjoy the kiss nor feel any chemistry between us.
When I turned back Simon took his wheelbarrow and left.
Sizwe:So you coming around tonight? Nancy:It will be a school day tomorrow I can’t. Sizwe:Okay
I got into the house and found my parents already there. The rest of the day continued normally. The next morning I looked around and I didn’t find Simon on the street. I got out at our usual time but Nomsa arrived.
