Blind in love

 

*Part 9*

 

Simon:Baby what are you doing here?

 

Just at hearing the word baby I put on my dress and flew out of the door. I could hear him calling my name but I didn’t look back. I got home and locked my self in the bedroom. I cried so hard that my eyes hurt.

 

Maria: Honey Nomsa is here.

 

 

I let her in my bedroom.

 

Nomsa:You look awful what’s going on?

 

Nancy:It’s Simon he has a girlfriend

 

Nomsa:(Looking down) Ohh Thando.

 

Nancy:(Angry)So you knew about this?And you didn’t tell me!

 

Nomsa:I’m sorry I..

 

Nancy:Worst of all I just had sΒ£x with him.

 

Nomsa:(Shocked)You guys had what?

 

Nancy: Please leave!

 

She left and after a while I washed my face and went to my piercing appointment. I decided to pierce my nose and then I went to a spa. I needed to relax. At the spa I saw Sizwe and his girlfriend.

 

Sizwe:Where is your boyfriend?

 

Nancy:(Pretending to be okay)He couldn’t make it.

 

Sizwe:And your sister wife?

 

Nancy:Who?

 

Sizwe:Thando.

 

Nancy:(Smiling)I don’t have a sister wife. If you don’t mind I have to go.

 

I decided to be one of those “it girls ” at school. The next day I left early and when I got to school I went to the girls bedroom. I lifted my skirt to make it shorter,let my hair loose and put on some make up. Afterwards I went to class. All the boys were staring at me including Kristen, the captain of the soccer team.

 

Kristen:Hey Nancy

 

He had never spoken to me before. This new look certainly enticed him.

 

Nancy:Hey Kristen.

 

Kristen:You look hot.

 

Nancy:(Giggling)Thank you.

 

Kristen:Since well we are in the same class let’s go.

 

 

I walked with him. When we arrived at class I saw Simon. I felt like crying but I would ruin my makeup. I sat down at my table. Simon’s table is closer to mine.

 

Simon:Hi Nancy,we need to talk.

 

Nancy: About?

 

Simon:Thando… she’s my girlfriend. My parents want me to marry her. Nancy:What about you?

 

Simon:When you didn’t take notice of me I began to love her. But I love you more. Nancy:You love her!
