Unresolved cheating boyfriend mysteries and a broken hearted pregnant girlfriend.

"Why would you do that to me? I trusted you" Mbali shouts, you said you'd never do it again and that the first time was just a mistake but here you are breaking my heart again Sipho. "Mbali is in tears and weary "... babe I'm sorry, it wasn't suppose to be this way, I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people and I kinda had a little bit too much to drink. Don't call me " babe " she shouts, "buh but" Sipho stutters. There's no buts, Mbali cuts him in his speech and tells him to shut up. "You only had one thing that you could do right Sipho, was it really that hard to stay true to you and keep your dick between your legs? Did I even cross your mind at all? Don't you love me anymore Sipho?" She says so in a sobering voice, her eyes teary. Sipho realizes that he really fucked up this time around, but convinces himself that there's always a way and so he braces himself, getting ready to tell her what really didn't happen.

Babe listen I'm really sorry okay? And words could never describe how really sorry I am. I can promise you the entire universe I don't remember everything that happened that night. I just remember arriving there at Thato's place and the gents were there too, we had a braai like we always do. You know I just recently got this new promotion at work and it's been really tough for us financially, I couldn't even spoil you anymore babe. So I was just happy and my emotions were through the roof and I didn't realise I was drinking myself to the coffin. So a few minutes after I got there, Thato's sister came with some of her friends to join us for the braai. Then after that I was texting you like I always do when I'm at one of my friends place.

It was also super rugby weekend, myself and my friends made it a thing to get together on Saturdays for a braai and share couple of beers but there was just something odd about that one specific weekend. You know when sometimes things happen in such an unorganized but organized manner, you start wondering, " how did we get here? " That was me, because that specific Saturday I never came back home until the following morning. So what really happened that night after the super rugby games?

Sipho claims he only remembers bits of pieces of that night, at some point they were at a club and Neo was having a disagreement with some people there, so they left. Almost to a nearly blackout state Sipho only remembers sitting on the passenger seat, driving. That's when he woke up at his Ex's place on her couch.

So as he tries to explain to her girlfriend what happened, with only flash memories of the previous night, he doesnt seem to be saying anything that makes sense. Mbali cuts in "You know what Sipho? I don't wanna hear it, I'm sick and tired of your continuous filthy lies that just never stop, and you know what's really fucked up? You keep promising me a better tomorrow and all these vivid dreams and I believe you all the time but you just never change Sipho " her eyes teary, her hearts heavy and he's lies broke her. There is a lot on her head right now, she's pregnant with this man's baby, the man that today is making her cry, the man that today is breaking her heart yet again. Does she tell him? Or does she just leave because he's not worthy of being a father? Going for an adoption was never an
option but right now it seems to be creeping into her mind. So she contemplates and ponders her thoughts. She tries to pull herself together, he tries to get closer to wipe her tears, she pushes him away and yells " I'm done with you " at this point she can barely look at him in the eyes. She tries to leave, Sipho grabs her hand " babe please don't do this to me, you know I love you and you mean the world the world to me, without you nothing could make sense in my life, you keep me sane and I won't lie I'm ashamed of my actions " She gives him one last final look, you can see it in her eyes she's hurting, no words to spare, little time to share and maybe courage and taking a leap of faith is never fair.
So she utters her final words to Sipho " You did this to yourself " and she wrestled her arm out of his, rushed her way to the exit, got on her car and drove off.

Sipho is left confused and furious, so he calls Thato to find out what really happened. He's hungover and his voice is still husky. " My boy! " he answers the phone with curiosity when he sees it's Sipho, Thato mutters " ey my boy what happened to you last night? ". "That's what I'm trying to find out bro " Sipho utters in an irritative voice. You stayed behind with your Ex bro, when Neo tried to get you before we could leave, you said nah and told him to leave, your Ex and her people also tried to get in it and she was quite adamant as well. "No man why would I wanna stay with her bro, it doesn't make sense to me " Sipho tries to get his thoughts together. That's what got us confused too, Neo almost got in a fight with those people but he left when you said, you're a man and you know what you're doing. " "Nah nigga you trippin' " Sipho replies. Where did you wake up this morning? Thato asks. Sipho remains silent in shock for a short while and says.... "Damn".

He Drops the phone and rushes to the taxis to his Ex's place. He's furious and raging through the gate, he shouts "Lerato!". She walks out the door with a grin on her face and says " you must have some nerve "

They exchange a couple of vulgar words. Sipho pulls himself together and calms down. " Listen Lerato, whatever happened last night was a mistake, I was drunk and not fully conscious of my actions. I don't mean any disrespect coming to your place like this but.... Lerato interposes herself in his speech and says " hold on, wait. What are you talking about? Because nothing happened between us, you were too drunk to even remember your own name anyway" She smirks and chuckles. "So what was I doing in your place then?" Sipho asks as he tries to complete the pieces of his  missing puzzle. " Nothing " she says with a grin and shrugs her shoulders. " after your friends left, you got a little too drunk, falling all over the place so I asked one of my friends to drive us to my place, so that you could rest before going home. She chuckles and simpers "You couldn't stop talking about your girlfriend and how amazing she is on the way back, if i had an option I'd have thrown out the car window". I couldn't even explain this morning because you left in such a hurry to get to your place. Sipho sighs and shows a sign of relief, you can tell a weight has been taken off his shoulders. He says " Thank you Lerato, I don't know what got to me and again I'm sorry for coming in like this to your place, I'm just not in a good state right now ". " what's wrong " she asks in a soft tone of concern. Sipho shakes his head and says " don't worry about it, I'll sort it out ".

So he says his final goodbyes and takes a taxi home. On the way he tries to get hold of his girlfriend on the phone but she's not picking up. After numerous attempts he calls her best friend to ask about her whereabouts and she says she hasn't heard from her since last night, she sounded really worried about you. Tumi being a bubbly person she spills the beans. " Have you checked the hospital because she was suppose to go for a check up today " she utters. Sipho is shocked and confused " What check up " he asks in a curious voice. Tumi holds her mouth from guilt and says " ohh she hasn't told you yet? She's pregnant Sipho" She said she would tell you today and you were supposed to go for checks with her. Whuh wh what are you talking about Tumi? Can you try to call her because I've been trying to get hold of her but she's really mad at me. Please just call to find out where she is and if she's safe. " I will call her and find out " she says.

Memories flash back as Thato thinks of raising a family with her and finally being a father, how she would always smile and say "ugh stop it" with a very shy but beautiful smile that she'd always show on her face, every time he spoke about how much he'll be a great father to their child. Just as he is about to call her mother he receives a phone call from St Patrice hospital informing him that he's girlfriend had been involved in an accident asking him to come in by the hospital and request to see Dr. Jenkins. Sipho cries and whimpers, can't seem to get himself together he screams " No man ". He makes his way to the hospital as fast as possible. He's hasty and agitated when he gets to the hospital he even bangs his head on the see through glass sliding door. He manages to make his way and heads straight to the receptionist. "Um um uh I'm here for D Doc Dr. Jenkins" he stutters and his hands are shaking. *Dr Jenkins walking towards the reception *. "Oh here he Is " the receptionist points Sipho to Dr. Jenkins. Sipho looks at him with red eyes, you'd swear his eyes were a balloon holding excessive amounts of water just waiting to explode. He takes a gulp of his saliva, trying to control his emotions and hold back his tears. He asks " What's going on Doc?, is my girlfriend okay? Where is she, I want to see her ". Dr. Jenkins looks at him with very sad eyes and says " I'm really sorry to have to break this to you Mr Thomas, but your girlfriend is no longer with us, we tried our best to keep her alive but she had already lost too much blood from the accident scene, I'm really sorry Mr Thomas ". Sipho looks down on the floor, puts his hands on his face and tumbles in tears.
