Slow poison Chapter 29

SLOW POISON
INSERT TWENTY-NINE
#THULANI

We made sure that we had eliminated all my father's thugs
Then my guys took the bodies of our two fallen solders and exited the compound with them
I was gonna meet them later at the shack
*
I went back to the house and my father was now dressed in a long trek pants and a long sleeve t-shirt
Hlehle's mother was dressed in his t-shirt and had on a towel around her waist
*
" What you know, the love birds are still here" I said
*
My father couldn't even answer, he was clearly amazed seeing me still breathing
*
Him: owh so you are back
*
Me: well you should know that a man never sends boys to do a man's job
*
Him: clear enough
*
Me: now daddy dearest you have a lot of questions to answer before I blow out your brains
*
I pointed a gun in his face
*
" What has really gotten into you, what do you want from me boy
Do you really think I will let you just kill me" my dad said taking out a gun
*
I just smiled sarcastically,
*
Me: now we shall see who can pull the trigger faster then
*
" Guys you need to stop this, enough with this madness ohk" hlehle's mother interjected
*
Me: owh no your boyfriend needs to answer few questions first
Starting with who is my father
*
Hlehle's mother coughed continuously
*
"I need water, vusi can I get a glass of water please"
*
Me: nobody is going anywhere
Answer me dad, are you really my father
If so then who was my mother, can you atleast show me her picture
And explain to me why don't i remember my life before I was 10
*
The room was dead quiet
*
" Answer me dammit" I yelled louder
*
Before anybody could talk hlehle entered the room looking all kinds of horrible
She was followed by an injured alex
*
Her eyes met with mine, from what was written in her face I could tell that she was dead stunned seeing me carrying a gun
I didn't know what to do, I really had hoped that she will never have to see this side of me
*
I was caught in continuing pointing the gun at my dad or just let it down
*
*
Upon entering the lounge I literary froze
My knees trembled
I couldn't believe the scene enrolling right infront of eyes
I couldn't believe that it was my
Lani pointing a gun at someone like thAt
*
Then on the side was my mother who looked like she had seen a ghost she was sitting on the other couch
I couldn't really understand what she was doing with a towel wrapped around her waist and a dodgy t-shirt
*
" What's really going on here" I asked hoping to clear my confusion
*
" Owh baby are you ohk, did he hurt you" lani asked
*
He ran towards me and hugged me with one hand
I just buried myself in his chest and sob for a while
*
" They had me tied up like some pathetic dog
Why, why would he do that to me" I staggered
*
I really let the pain took over me
Lani brushed my back for a while until I was completely calm
When I felt better we broke the hug
I stared deeply in his eyes
We were about to kiss when my mom cleared her throat
*
" Umh baby girl am so glad you are ohk" she said standing up from the couch
*
She came towards me and tried hugging me forcing me to break the hug with Lani
*
I broke the hug then hugged her briefly
*
" Why are you here, what are doing here mom " I asked breaking the hug
*
Thulani: good question maybe she and my father can explain
*
Her: uhm ehh baby
*
Me: mom please, why are you in the house of a man who held me hostage wearing only but a towel
What are you doing here and how do you know this man
*
Her: well I came here looking for you baby
*
Me: really, wearing a towel
*
She kept quiet
*
Thulani: maybe dad here can clarify starting from why he had you drugged
And why he kidnapped you
Not forgetting explaining to me who my father is
*
Lani pointed the gun at his father again
*
" Start talking dammit" Lani said getting rather angry
*
I didn't blame him though I also felt so much anger and hatred towards his heartless father
I mean I did nothing to him and yet he just woke up and saw it best to just ruin my life
*
Without any notice the fire arm went off
My mother and I screamed and just then tommy and some guy rushed in pointing guns at thulani who had fired a shot
Shooting the hand his father was holding a gun with
He screamed so loud in pain and his gun scattered on the floor
*
" The next one is gonna be in your head dad, you better start talking right now" thulani proceeded
*
" Please come down dude, put the gun down" tommy said
*
Me: tommy what are doing here
*
Tommy: I should be asking you that question, ain't you suppose to be in school
*
"Jam....jamal, how did you get here and why are you with tommy" my mom said
*
Now she really looked like she has seen a real ghost
She was so sweaty and for a while there couldn't breathe
*
" Well,, well ,, well this has just gotten so amazing
Hi grace" the guy who was with tommy said with a side smile
I guess from the look of things he was the Jamal person
*
" What, why are you here" my mom said, it seemed like her mouth was running dry
She held her head and chest then tried sitting down on the couch
*
"Relax grace, you ain't seen nothing yet
Its about to rain cats and dogs in here
You just have to get ready for the storm that is coming it just a pity that you don't have an umbrella to protect yourself from getting wet " the jamal guy said
*
Mom: who are you really and what storm are you talking about
*
Jamal: just wait and see
*
A loud bang was heard, thulani had just shot the ceiling
*
" Can we get back to the matter at hand
Dad who is my father" thulani said pointing the gun at his father
Who was moaning in pain from his hand wound
*
I could see thulani's anger was getting out of control
*
Tommy: man please put the gun down
Please
*
Thulani: no not until I get all the answers
This man needs to tell me the truth
*
Tommy: I believe that is the same reason we are here
Please man
You don't have to do this
We can get to the bottom of this peacefully
*
Thulani: who the hell are you
*
Tommy: put the gun down first and I will tell you all you need to know about me
*
Alex: please boss, put it down, let your old man speak
*
I walked towards him
*
" Kuhle no, step back" tommy said trying to stop me
*
Me: its ohk, he won't hurt me
*
I finally reached the angry thulani
I placed my hand on the hand that was holding the gun
*
Me: please baby put the gun down ohky, its ohk
Everything is gonna be ohk
*
He hesitated for a while before putting the gun down
After he had put the gun down he placed both his hands in his face
*
" This man has put me through so much pain
And hurting the woman I love was just the last straw
He needs to pay for what he put you through baby" he said with a broken voice
*
I was hurt seeing my man this vulnerable
*
Me: its ohky baby, you don't have to worry he will pay
*
" Did you just say baby, are you guys in a relationship" tommy asked
*
Me: yes, he is the love of my life
*
Tommy: owh my god
*
Jamal: shit now this is really fucked up
I think its time to let the boss in
*
Tommy took out his phone and called someone
*
" The coast is clear, you can now come in
And please boss prepare yourself for the worst, its a full house" tommy said before dropping the call
*
All eyes were on him, am sure we were all wondering who he was talking too
And what they were. Really doing here
