Blind in love

 

*Part 3*

 

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

 

have you.

 

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?

 

Simon:Sit down.

 

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

 

Simon:Yeah

 

 

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

 

Simon:True

 

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.
