Diary of a restless soul Insert 53

Insert 53
I have never seen nomonde face to face before.
So i took a good look at her.
And to my surprise it wasn't my first time seeing her.
Her face looked so familiar.
I tried so hard to remember where i've seen her before.
"the dream" it finally hit me.
Yeah she was the woman who forced me to eat food in my dream.
And some guy rescued me.
I felt cold in an instant.
I was afraid.
Seeing the woman who tried to kill me was no joke.
And the fact that she was so beautiful made it hard for me to understand why she was so cruel.
She looked exactly like nwabi. Yellow bone,
Round face, sharp nose with those rare china eyes.
To top it all she had a killer body. Now i see where her kids got their looks From.
I was still entangled in my own thought,
when i notice that she was actually staring at me.
She had that
"you make me sick look in her face".
And for some weird reasons she couldn't enter the gate.
She was un able to pass through the gate.
Its like something was blocking her from entering.
But still that didn't stop her from shouting.
Nwabi: mama ufuna nton apha.
(mom what do you want here).
Nomonde: i am here to do what i should have done long time ago.
Nwabi: which is???
Nomonde: WHICH IS GETTING RID OF MY OBSTARCLES AND RECLAIM WHAT'S RIGHTFULLY MINE.
EVERY TOM, DICK AND HARRY THAT STANDS ON MY WAY WILL FEEL THE HEAT.
(SHE SAID WHILE LOOKING AT ME)
THIS WOMEN HAS TAKEN ENOUGH FROM ME AND SHE WILL PAY.
SHE WILL FEEL THE BLADE AS IT SLOWLY CUT THROUGH HER SKIN.
mom: what did i exactly take from you nomonde huuh?
When will you leave us alone.
I didn't hit on your husband you drove him away with your witchcraft.
And i met him while he was the mess that you made him.
I cleaned him up,
got him a job.
Raised the children that you failed to raise.
You almost burned your kids alive when you locked them in with a burning candle.
All you knew what to do was drink day and night.
I didn't take anything from you.
You willingly destroyed everything by your self.
I just picked up the pieces.
Nomonde: OWH THATS WHAT YOU KEEP TELLING YOURSELF.
WELL I WANT TO SEE HOW YOU WILL PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN I'M THROUGH WITH YOU.
BLOOD WILL FLOW JUST WATCH THE SPACE.
YOU AND YOUR DAUGHTER DESERVE EVERYTHING THAT IS COMING YOUR WAY.
I JUST FEEL BAD FOR MY USELESS CHILDREN WHO SEEMS TO BE UNDER THE SPELL OF YOUR HARLOT DAUGHTER.
VUYO: mom you are making a fool of your self please leave.
Nomonde: that witch of her daughter has also turn you against me vuyo.
Me: it takes one to know one
i heard myself saying.
I thought i was whispering but she clearly heard me.
I quickly look the other way.
People from our street were watching this.
Even our guest were starcled by these twist of event.
An old guy who was the brother of nwabis father intervaned.
Him: nomonde you never change and you never seized to amaze me.
Nomonde: uthule ke wena mzukisi.
This has nothing to do with you.
Mzukisi: well it has everything to do with me monde,
you killed our brother,
as if that's not enough now you ruining your daughter's big day.
That's right we know that you have a hand in my brothers dead.
Just because you didn't want him to be happy.
A traditional healer told us.
Nomonde: jah of'cause i did because he deserved it,
just like those two (she pointed at me and my mom)
deserves what is coming their way,
so did your traditional healer also told you that mandisa is your daughter.
Mandy: INTONI?????.
Now we all didn't see that coming.
Mzukisi chocked in his own saliva.
We were all surprised.
Did this woman publicly said that he slept with her husband's brother.
The neighbours started whispering.
But that was nothing compared to mandy's traumatised face.
Her eyes were glittering with tears.
I was watching all this like a movie.
All that kept playing in my mind was how messed up this woman really was.
Who on earth announces the partenity of her child in front of so many people.
Mandy: (with a shaky voice). nomonde what are talking about.
Nomonde: i said mzukisi is your father ask him if you don't believe me.
Well he might be ashamed to tell you how you came about,
but i am not.
As i said i always get what i want one way or the other.
I once wanted mzukisi and i got him,
and you were the results.
Mandy: so all this time i believed that this are my siblings while they actually my half siblings.
Nomonde: haiska wethu its the same surname so you are siblings.
Mandy: same surname or not we still not from the same father mama.
Nomonde: hey stop making your self a drama queen.
I did not came here for you kakade.
I saw the pain on mandy's face.
She quickly ran to the house and nwabi followed her.
Nomonde threw something which seemed like ashes in the air.
Nomonde: well i think my purpose of coming here have been fulfilled.
She walked away leaving everyone with some un answered questions.
The crowd walked away.
Little did we know that a hurricane was coming.
And neither of us were prepared.
