Somila : I knew this was a bad decision.I shouldn’t have encouraged her to do this.
Sino : Somi please stop blaming yourself,this is not your fault…whoa you encouraged her to do what?
Somila : It wasn’t a miscarriage,Sino.
Sino : Wait,what?
Somila : Pretty had an abortion.
Sino : Somi,why didn’t you tell me about this? You should have said something but you kept quiet.
Somila : It wasn’t my place to tell you.
Sino : Yoh.This is all Khanya’s fault.I blame him for this.You know I should have sent Pretty back home after what happened with Yandisa.Another thing that I hate about her is that she’s secretive.
Somila : I don’t blame her though.
Sino : What’s that supposed to mean?
Somila : You haven’t been easy on her,Sino and you know that.
Sino : No,Somi this is embarrassing.Already she falls pregnant and on top of that she does an abortion.What do you think people will say about us?
Somila : I hope she gets better soon.I need to go back to the Salon.
Sino : Okay.Thanks for popping in.
Sino took her phone and called her mother.
Sino : Hello mama.
Her mother : Hello,my child,how are you and your sister doing?
Sino : I called to let you know that Pretty is in hospital.
Her mother : Oh my goodness,what happened to my child?
Sino : Your child had an abortion mama.
Her mother : How can something like that happen under your watch,Sino?
Sino : Mama I didn’t know Pretty was pregnant.Her friend just told me.
Her mother : Should anything happen to my child I’m telling you,you will be sorry Sino my child.
Sino : The doctors said she’ll be fine.She’s geting discharged tomorrow (the door swung open) Mama I have to go.
Khanya : You witch! You killed my child!
Sino : Khanya just because your girlfriend lives here doesn’t give you the right to barge in here and start throwing accusations.
Khanya : My child is dead because of you,we both know that.
Sino : What child are you talking about? Because I’m sure she didn’t even tell you she was pregnant.
Khanya : How was she supposed to tell me because I’m sure you told her not to tell me.
Sino : The only person who knew about her pregnancy is her friend,Somila.Go and ask your friend if I knew about this,she will tell you that I didn’t know.
Khanya : And you expect me to believe that you are innocent?
Sino : How sure are you that the baby she was carrying was your baby? Huh?
Khanya : Mxn (clicking his tongue and going)
The following day Pretty was discharged from the hospital.Sino asked Somila to go fetch her from the hospital.
Somila : Sino just told me your girlfriend will be discharged today.Can you please fetch her from the hospital?
Khanya : I will fetch her.
Somila : Thanks,Khanya.
Khanya drove to the hospital to fetch Pretty.
Pretty : Where’s Sino.
Khanya : I don’t know.
It was a silent drive going back home.
Khanya : Why didn’t you tell me you were pregnant?
Pretty : I didn’t know how to tell you or how you would react.
Khanya : Was it even my child?
Pretty : Why with all these questions?
Khanya : I deserve to know,Pretty.I want to know the truth! Was it my child?
Pretty : (keeping quiet)
Khanya : So it wasn’t my child?
Pretty : I don’t know.
Khanya : So you’ve been cheating on me this whole time?
Pretty : Khanya,I would never do that to you.
Khanya : Then how do you explain this? Who else did you sleep with? Was it your sister’s boyfriend’s child?
Pretty : No! How can you even think that?
Khanya : Then tell me,who else did you sleep with?
Pretty : The person I slept with before we started dating is Sphelo.
Khanya : So you were carrying his child? I can’t believe I dumped all my girlfriends because of you.I thought you were different.
Pretty : Khanya,don’t say that.
Khanya : It’s over between us.I don’t ever want to hear from you again.
Tell us : Do you feel sorry for Pretty?
