Blind in love

 

*Part 6*

 

It was hard to act like I am okay. When I raise up my hand teachers ignored me.

 

When it was school out I saw Sizwe outside and went to confront him.

 

Nancy: I’ve never met a selfish and self centered person like you! You ruined my life!

 

Sizwe:(Laughing)I did you good you want a repeat?

 

Nancy:How could you?I trusted you ! I gave you my body. I gave you my virginity!

 

The other learners started to form a circle around us.

 

Nancy:You are sick in the head no wonder your mother left you to stay alone!

 

Sizwe:(Getting closer to me) Don’t you dare talk about my mother!

 

Nancy:Or what?You gonna beat me like you always do?I’m used to that.

 

Simon got in the middle of us.

 

Simon: He’s not worth it..let’s go.

 

I left Sizwe alone and I got a letter saying I have been suspended from my cricket team. I got another letter from the university I had applied for , they refused to

 

 

have me as their student as I may portray “unruly behaviour”. I couldn’t believe it! For Sizwe everything was going well and for me all was crashing down. I decided to commit suicide on Saturday. My parents went to do grocery shopping and I took and overdose of sleeping pills. I woke up in the hospital.

 

Maria:Ohh thank God you are awake.

 

Simon:Do you need anything?

 

Nancy:Wait..I’m not in heaven.

 

Nomsa:You are not.

 

Nancy:Can I have some water?

 

Simon ran to get it.

 

Maria:You dad has gone to work let me go call him.

 

Maria left. Simon came back and gave me the water.

 

Nomsa:I got to go I’ll see you later.

 

Nomsa left.

 

Simon:(Kissing my forehead)I thought you had died.

 

Nancy:What actually happened?

 

Simon:I came to check up on you and I found foam forming on your mouth. I called the ambulance but they took too long so I put you in my wheelbarrow and ran you here.

 

Nancy:(Smiling)You saved my life.

 

Simon:I did what any guy would have done

 

Nancy:Sizwe wouldn’t.

 

Simon: Forget him he’s a jerk.

 

I got discharged and went home. On Sunday Simon came to check up on me.
