The rural girl who went to Gauteng

Tokollo’s surprise visit

Chapter 63
It was on Friday after school when I arrived at the flat, around passed 4 o’clock expecting a call from Moeketsi so that I can tell him about our appointment with Mr Pillay the following day on Saturday at 8:30 at McDonald’s Sunnyside .Time went and the night grew old without receiving any call from Moeketsi as I expected. There was no way I could reach him because he didn’t own a Meer cell phone. The only option to get hold of him was to physically go to his place in Atteridgevill Lotus Gardens. I began to worry much about Moeketsi and also thinking he might be somewhere trying to rob people like he had been doing previously. At around 8 o’clock in the evening I received a call from a private number, before I could answer the call I was definitely sure that is Moeketsi who was calling. “Hello” I answered and it was Tokollo who had called me. “Baby I really miss you so much and I want us to have some quality time at my place tonight since it had been a while we have been together due to my business commitments” Tokollo said to me. “Ok baby you will let me know when you coming over to fetch me and please don’t take much of your time to get here because tomorrow morning I have an appointment to attend to and as a result I will have to leave your place very early in the morning.” I said to him, immediately after the last word I said “morning” his phone braked on the network. When I attempted to call him back his phone was on voice mail, I then decided to be patient and waited for him to get back to me, it is now two important people I’m expecting calls from.

As I was busy thinking about Moeketsi and his siblings, 20 minutes later I received a second call from a land line number, it was Moeketsi who had called me, by that time I was already in a bathtub fixing myself and getting ready for Tokollo whom I’m not sure if he was going to make it to my place to fetch me because it was very strange that his phone braked and he didn’t make any means of contacting me even though he had two cell phones and I didn’t have his other number, I had been very ignorant to save them on my device. Honestly speaking I wanted all of him that night because it had been a while since he left for his business trip. “Mahlatse I only paid two rand's for the phone i am calling you from which will last us for one hundred and twenty seconds, it’s a public phone and fortunately they close late on Fridays and weekends which better sweet some of us who like hanging around overnight”. Moeketsi said to me “Ok well Moeketsi, we are meeting with Mr Pillay tomorrow morning at 8:30, He is a branch manager at McDonald’s Sunnyside, He will hook up you with a job to sustain you and your siblings but you will only work on weekends provided that you go back to school for security reasons. Be on time and I will also try to talk to the social workers if they can offer you guy’s social grants for orphans since you don’t have both parents or somebody who is looking after your family”. I said to Moeketsi. “Mahlatse I will be on time tomorrow and thanks for your effort and again for bailing me out of the police station, my minutes are almost depleted, and I will meet you tomorrow on time there, bye” Moeketsi said as he hanged up the phone.

I attempted to call Tokollo several times after I was done with Moeketsi and his cell phone took me straight to voicemail. The capacity of my worrying began to grow big and bigger, I tried by all means to ignore this feeling of getting annoyed by Tokollo but that didn’t help at all. When I was done bathing I went to the living room to join the girls, we were watching a movie by Leon Schuster; panic mechanic. “Mahlatse why do you look sad, is everything ok?” Tsakane asked. “I’m ok my friend is just that Sometimes we get swallowed like the man Jonah from the bible because we are going to the wrong direction with the wrong people. God wanted him Jonah to go to Niniveh, he choose to go to Tarshish. I think I have to check and review my directions with Tokollo. I am no longer sure if my relationship with Tokollo is enabling or disabling me, maybe it is time to let go of relationships that are not serving me positive. 

The truth is; nothing will change until you change. Nothing will improve unless you improve. Nothing will be renewed unless you renew your mind. I have been in the wilderness for too long. Today I want to make a decision to move on. Tokollo hanged up the phone whilst we were busy on the line and he switched off his phone and I was supposed to spend a night at his place today” I said to the girls, and there was a moment of silent and this other guy in the movie we were watching chipped a tooth and farted at the same time, instead of us laughing there was a knock at the door, without any waste of time I went to check out who was knocking with a thought that it might be Tokollo. When I opened the door it was Tokollo and he seemed to have heard all that I shared with the girls, I nodded. “Hey baby” Tokollo exclaimed…………
