So I got out of bed early this morning [mom wanted to call my sister from my phone because my sis wasn’t answering her number], took a shower, had a fulfilling and calorific breakfast [fried half ripe plantains with grated cheese on top and two poached eggs] just the way my momma knows I like it [I kinda like it when my big sis-see gives her trouble], brushed my 24, clad myself; felt no need for cosmetics on my face because I was glowing and in a free-spirited mood so I told myself that ill surely be rocking my black ballerina shoe that has a neat silver buckle on the front.
*Someone knocks on the front door*
Me: who is it?
Person: Raptus is me, Daniel. [He keeps the yard clean and tries to tidy and unify mommy’s garden but never succeeds because she is too stubborn and doubtful]
Mom: Raptus, please give Daniel this money.
Raptus: * Holy shit! I need money to get to work* oh-ok mom, um I need money to get to work.
Mom: ok here..
Raptus: * hmm you are in a good mood, I wonder how serious your beef with my sis-see is ….Puts money in my skirt pocket* . Here you go Daniel….and don’t come back. How many times do I have to tell you to beg dat woman in the afternoons and not in the mornings? You see, she only bless you with $2000.
Daniel: *collects his money* I gon tackle she this afternoon.
Continued fixing my hair, put on the shoes, change my skirt because it was not compatible with the shoes; while doing so mom gave me my phone and bid me farewell then I rushed to get out of the house. While I was en route to the Vreed-en hoop Stelling I discovered the obvious, got a bit nervous so I swiftly maneuvered to call mom to rescue me because my debit card is in my other bag but I was out of credit…
