Dygo-Ring of Lies, Secrets & Betrayals Chapter 22


Just then a hand touched me and lifted me, still trembling, to my hands and knees. And the man said to me, “Daniel (Obonolo), you are very precious to God, so listen carefully to what I have to say to you. Stand up, for I have been sent to you.” When he said this to me, I stood up, still trembling. Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel (Obonolo). Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer.( Daniel 10:10-12)
That verse played over and over in my mind as I looked at Reatli and asked her to tell me everything. She just looked at me and broke down and cried. To be honest I was not even moved by her breakdown. I have been there before, all thanks to her. Now she was being served a dish well prepared and deserved. How I love Karma. But other than karma, book of Daniel was playing just replaying.

Just a day before, Mama and I were praying and she read that chapter 10 for me. She said even though the scripture does not give us all the answers about the unseen angelic realm, we must admit that a lot remains a mystery. But it does give us a glimpse and remind us that we all are in a spiritual battle. The angels are sent by God to render service to those who are His, yet a lot of this service, like the angels themselves, is unseen to the human eye.
I must admit, never in a million years since my last encounter with Reatlehile did I dream of seeing this moment. Before she continued talking, she came closer to where I was sitting and knelt down. She pulled my hands into hers and held on to them too tight. She was trembling. So like Daniel in the scripture my knees were also knocking pretty loudly! Was this woman up to something evil or good? Was she a devil parading with tears in a sheep skin?
A part of me was convinced that she wouldn’t drive all the way here just to cry on my feet. She must have really needed to talk. Although it was hard to tell from just looking at her but I had to take it like the messenger in the scripture that reassured Daniel that he was highly esteemed and not to be afraid. And that the hand that touched Daniel was that of an angel who had been sent with a message.
It’s so true. Sometimes we must not expect God’s blessings to be packaged according to our own expectations. When God send that breakthrough you so much prayed for your way, he decides and choose how it will be presented to you. Even your worst enemy could be send to deliver the package. I believed that God send her to Mmatau for a reason and a purpose. Somehow as the answer to all my prayers.
So left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. The last thing I wanted to do was to push her away without saying whatever she came to say. I decided, well, let me just hear her out. Let me just close off every part of me and just open my ears and listen.
Nna: Ok Reatli, I'm all ears, carry on... talk
Reatli: Thank you Bobs. But before I bombard you with everything else, there's something I want to say first. I know the kind of a bitch I'd been towards you for the past months. And I am terribly sorry for everything. I realize and understand that I have hurt you badly with my actions and words, and I'm not sure if I can build anything back that has been broken. But this is my first effort in trying. Please forgive me.
I know what I said and did hurt you deeply. The moment those words left my lips I knew that I couldn't act fast enough to retract them. Your reaction was justified. If someone whom I cared about had said or done such things to me, I would have reacted the same way. "I'm sorry" doesn't seem to be adequate enough. I wish I knew how to say it better.
As I was driving here, I've relived those moments I treated you so badly over and over and wondered how I could have been so insensitive. I am sorry I violated your trust. In doing such my words generally mean nothing to you anymore, and the bond that was there has been broken.
I recognize the fact that you are hurt because of me and my doings, and I accept full responsibility for my actions. I accept responsibility for causing you harm and letting you down. I know everything that happened was my fault, and I am truly sorry. I wish I could turn back time and redo everything, but I can’t. I can't give you back everything that you have lost but I'm prepared to do everything in my power to earn your trust and help you and my brother to make Nyiko Baloye and Sheryl Gosiame pay for everything they took away from you and the pain they have caused.
I still am not sure how to go about fixing things, but I will do my best to find a way. However long it might take, how much difficulty, and challenging it might be and even if it's the last thing I have to do, at whatever cost, I will find justice. I realize these things rest solely on me. I do feel remorse and I do honestly feel bad about what I have done and I hope that eventually you will be able to find it in your heart to forgive me. Wholeheartedly. I don't think I have ever been so disappointed in myself. I am even so ashamed. Again, please forgive me.”
This was big! Reatli asking for forgiveness? Was it genuine?
Eventually, having failed on the I’m ignoring her-and-keeping a tough front- and I am so mad at her attitude , I gave into the sadness. Right there in my mom’s house, on the 1st of January 2013, I took a good look at the hard parts of the previous year, the moments she stood in front of me or called me and thrown heart shattering insults at me. I felt them again, I cried. We cried a lot. It didn’t feel great, but the tears were somehow cleansing. Even as I wiped the tears away, the positive memories and things I was proud of started to trickle in. For me to continue listening to what Reatli was about to tell me, I had to remain strong and focused and not let my shattered emotions take control of me.
Previously I had given good attention to the black clouds of the year before and what she put me through but her being there, knelt down before me, I didn’t have to work hard to count my blessings. I felt them pour into my mind. I focused on some of the happy memories of 2012. Abuti Omphile’s wishes few hours ago, the release of the fire balloon, bright fireworks breaking up the darkness and letting go of resentment. I can’t tell you that I was ready to completely forgive her as yet , or pull her up and embrace her, but damn it felt good seeing her at her lowest, begging for my forgiveness. I kind of enjoyed the sight of a princess bowing down to a servant.
They say, sometimes you have to grieve a difficultly before you can celebrate it. Sometimes we have to feel it all before we can move on. Sometimes we have to acknowledge that huge black cloud and let it purge all its rain before we can see the rays of the positive and precious memories, glinting and glistening.
As I sit and replayed her apology and thought of all that happened between us, a verse popped into my head: “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, to him be the glory…”
I thought to myself : “Dear Lord, I’ve been through the worst before. Yet you have always been there and fighting my battles. And I always knew what to do, but whatever happened between me and my sister in law, that was kinda hard. Yaah, 2012 was my year: hard, painful and full of goodness. And this is life: hard, painful and full of goodness.And somehow it’s the goodness that stays with me.
I exhaled deeply, wiped off the tears on my face.
Nna: Reatli, I’m sorry. I just wish it was that simple and easy but, my heart is nowhere near to listen to how sorry you are. I’m not at that space. I’m not at that point yet. Right now I just want you to start talking about the reason you came here, nothing else.
Reatli: Fair enough. It’s just that I'm nervous about asking you to forgive me, but I thought I should apologize first. I'm sure that you've suffered a great deal because of me, and asking for forgiveness must be so much to ask from you. I also know that you might find it hard to believe my sincerity and honesty and at the same time I don’t want to overwhelm you. But I promise that I will learn from my mistakes and never repeat it. I truly never want to put our relationship on the line again. I hope you can believe that I am also a victim of deception and lies. I would like to believe that I was somehow possessed by something and made wrong judgements especially on you.
Nna: I know our struggles are not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Having said that, I know you did not come here expecting me to hug you, sympathies with you and or embrace you. Not especially what you put me through. So let’s just cut to the chase.
Reatli: Obonolo! Nyiko has been lying to me for a very long time and I just found out that He and Sheryl are actually busy behind my back. Two days before Christmas ,I invited Sheryl to bring the twins, NJay- Nyiko Junior Tshenolo (Nyiko’s son with Sheryl’s sister Dintle) and MamaG to join us for Christmas lunch. She agreed and said she will confirm with me on Christmas eve. Later I told Nyiko about my invitation to the Gosiames for lunch and how Sheryl was excited about it. Nyiko just said it was a bad idea and should not have invited Sheryl to our house. I insisted but he still refused.
I told him that if he was not comfortable with Sheryl being here, he should at least go fetch MamaG and the kids ( NJay and the twins) only. He snapped at me saying I should not even have a Christmas lunch in the house instead we should join the rest of the family at Nthabeleng’s. For some reason Nyiko made a big noise that turned into a huge fight. He then stomped out of the house and left. He came back home very late at night and left very early on Xmas eve without a word. He didn’t even spend Xmas day with me and the girls. His phone was off. I tried to....
Nna: Whoa Reatli, it’s three o'clock in the morning, I’m really tired. Are you going to finish this today? Cos really, I’m not interested in your marriage life. We all deal with runaway partners at some point in our relationships. So really, if you have nothing important or sensible to tell me, other than how your husband treats you then let’s call it a day.( I Stood up, ready to make my way to go to sleep)
Reatli: Please wait. Don’t go, there’s something you would like to hear. Please sit down!
Nna: Five minutes, that’s all. And you better just start talking now.
Reatli: okay, to cut the long story short, I found out that Nyiko and Sheryl travelled together to Giyane on Xmas eve. Apparently the Baloyes were performing some ceremony for them.
Nna: Them? Nyiko and Sheryl?
Reatli: No. Remember the ceremony that Nyiko’s family performed for Tshenolo when we found out about him? That’s exactly the same ceremony that was performed for Oduetse and Ontiretse.
Nna: Ohk! Wait a minute. I’m not sure I follow ( lying through my teeth, un-brushed for that matter). Are you telling me that the children that are supposed to come from your brother’s seeds, the O’Twins, Di'Tau Tshehla tsa nnete, were being welcomed to the Baloye ancestors. Haahaaa! Why am I not surprised Reatlehile?
Reatli: I know Bobs! You said it all along that those twins were not Kevin’s and you even proved it, yet I turned a blind eye. You did my sister. Now I blame myself for all this and for ruining your marriage. If only I listened to you, I wouldn’t be where I am, my brother wouldn’t be where he is now, my family wouldn’t be so divided and my relationship with you wouldn’t be so damaged. ( Sobbing )
Nna: Well well well Reatlehile Baloye. There you have it. I hate to say I told you! But for what it’s worth and for being human. I am sorry for whatever you are going through. I just don’t see why you came all the way here to confirm that. Or even think I could help you make them pay. I have my own personal challenges that I would rather focus on. You deal with yours. Good luck with that.
Reatli: Bobs, I really need your help. I want Nyiko and Sheryl be exposed and pay for all the crimes they have committed and all the lives they ruined. And I know you want the same. I destroyed all the videos that you gave me. I need to get copies, if you don’t mind. I want to gather all the proof and every incriminating evidence that I can get on both Nyiko and Sheryl and make sure it’s good enough to make sure Nyiko Baloye never walks on this earth ever again. He’s gotten away with so much because of lack of evidence, and this time, he messed with the wrong family.I will destroy him even if it is the last thing that I have to do on this world...
As I listened to Mrs Baloye going on and on about how she was planning to destroy his loving husband and wannabe sister in law, a thought crossed my mind. What if this was what I needed for my own “ operation destroy Nyiko Baloye and Sheryl Gosiame?” And while prinzilla think that I would be stupid enough to want to form coalition with her and help her make my number one enemies pay for the past crimes, I would be getting my own victory and justice for almost being killed. And I will have access to a lot of things ( his financials, his files, his personal documents etc) that would really help me bring Nyiko and Sheryl down.
Question was: Should I distance myself and not trust this enemy before my eyes? Or should I turn a blind eye, pretend to help her while I know very well that I am only using her to accomplish my own mission?
