She opened the plastic and found [email protected] hair as well as an envelope that had money.
“This girl here is a prostitute.. if you want ask her she knows exactly what I am talking about..” she said.
Attention was drawn in the salon and eventually everyone [email protected]£ to watch.

“I have changed my mind I’m not doing razor cut.. I will plait this hair..” Kas-sy said as she gave the wig to her stylist.

“No my love. I will just be doing laundry when you leave… By the way thanks for the washing machine it works perfectly it has made life very easy..” she said..
“I don’t want you to be stressing yourself, you do too much work…” he said.
“Uhmm! Do I do too much work or do you give me too much work.. she giggled.
“Do i? oh I’m sorry honey maybe I just can’t get enough of you.. he said.

Phil!ppas-sed throu-gh to pick up the cake and then went to the [email protected] Sam was alre-ady there and he gave Phil!pa very strange look before pu-lling him aside.
“The next time you decide to go for your silly games plea-se remember to wear your shi-t correctly.. he said.
“What did I turn it.. oh man! I hope she hasn’t noticed..
“No I guess she hasn’t.. you go and change we nee-d you here. He said.
Petrina arrived quite late but it was un-derstandable as her wedding was just two weeks away..
“Petrina!.. Patience screamed..
“Oh wow girlfriend am glad you made it… just didn’t think you would make it on time. She said
“Oh here I am.. not to worry.. I’m here”. she said.
Petrina [email protected]£ with Sydney who sat with them and helped with the [email protected]
Nonde who had arrived earlier with Kas-sy did not seem happy upon seeing Petrina because her engagement had made her very elusive and she didn’t seem to care much.
“Nonde aren’t you excited to se me? She asked.
“Oh well what kind of friend has a wedding and keeps all the details pri-vate? Not even putting us on the lineup..” nonde complained
The ladies sat and discussed everything from marriage to old school days.
“Nonde you always leave baby behind what happened today?” Petrina asked.
“That useless girl, the low life I had in my house decided to leave.. she said.
“Amen! You took advantage of that girl you treated her like a slave.. I hope she’s happy where she is.. Patience said
“That’s true, guess you can now learn to attend to your husband’s nee-ds better.. Have you ever even cooked him a decent meal?.. Kas-sy said.
“Now look who is talking.. Unlike yours my husband is always available and even goes out of his way for me despite my inadequacies but look at you Kas-sy.. you go out of your way and yet your man is always M.I.A (Missing In Action).”
“Oh really? What do you know about my marriage??.. kas-sy said as she raised her voice.
“Excuse me… this is so unnecessary in fact all of you are just ma-king noise.. Patience interrupted.
“Take an example from Phil!pand I.. that’s why I told you ladies to take your time in finding the right [email protected] but seems you were all rushing for marriage.. A man requires enough time. You have to know and un-derstand each other like friends and then….”
“Oh shut up Patience!.. Nonde yelled.
“You are the last person to give me such an example.. she added
“Excuse me? What did you say?.. Patience asked in shock.
“Well either you’re blind or you just do not care about your husband at all.. I don’t see why you should let your man move out of the house wearing a shi-t inside out… if your marriage is so perfect would you let your husband be moving around like a clown!..
“Hold it right there.. Ladies! Really? Is this how we are going to be behaving? Instead of [email protected] this beautiful day all we do is just argue.. what has happened to us?.. all we do is compete now.. what is wrong with you guys?.. this is not healthy and it has to st©p immediately”. Petrina said.
“Anyway moving on.. congratulations Nonde your house is coming up pretty well, do you intend to shift there or maybe its going to be on rent?.. We are still looking for a house to move in after the wedding..” Petrina said.
“House? No, hubby and I are just starting the slab for the flats in meanwood otherwise we don’t have a house that is almost done.. she said.
“Oh really?.. guess I just didn’t see well then..
“See what? Nonde asked.
“Well I saw someone who looks like your husband in Chalala and my cousin told me he is building a house there.
Kas-sy immediately interrupted with a [email protected]
“Faithful husband indeed.. kas-sy said as she [email protected]
“Excuse me.. hold it right there Kas-sy! Nonde yelled as she stood up.
“No no no.. you guys not again.. plea-se you guys.. Petrina begged as she struggled to push Nonde away.
The men were comfortably watching soccer as they ate when they suddenly heard the noise outside and they [email protected]£ out to st©p the noise.
“What is going on here! Phil!pyelled.
“Nothing the [email protected] is over.. I’m off to be-d.” Patience said.
When everyone had left Patience had a shower and then went to be-d… Phil!pdelayed to go to be-d and she went to peep on him but she found he was just watching soccer in the sitting room while he smiled to himself as he looked at his phone.
“Can we go to be-d now? She asked him.
“Ok honey I’m coming.. he said.
She stood behind the door peeping, when she saw him ma-king sure that she had gone then he set a quic-k text and then walked to be-d.
“Did you have an accident when you went to pick my cake? She asked.
“No honey why would you think that?.. she asked
“ok.. I was just wondering why you took really long.. she said.
“Oh I pas-sed throu-gh the office..
“And your shi-t? Why did you come with your shi-t inside out.. she asked..
“Oh you noticed that?.. he giggled.
I guess I was rushing out when leaving, I just realised when I got back that I moved that way.. he said.
Patience could smell the lie from far away but she avoided any form of argument with him.. she decided to just ignore and sleep, although she ha-rd ly sle-pt.
Nonde on the hand did not bother asking her husband.. she was positive that Petrina was mistaken and there was no way possible that he had built a house without her knowledge.
However, the following week as Nonde was buying some vegetables at the Tuesday veg market when she saw Bwalya.
Nonde couldn’t believe her eyes, Bwalya was looking very nice and neat.. she had plaited Masai and was in an expensive looking African dress commonly known as a bubu.
“No no no, that can’t be Bwalya.. that really can’t be Bwalya. She said to herself.
“And she looks pregnant.. She thought again
Nonde tried to push herself throu-gh the crowd to catch a clear glimpse of Bwalya but she lost her in the crowd. She remembered how she chased Bwalya like a dog from her house and now seeing her looking that good shocked her. How could it be? What sort of luck did the girl have?
Is there any perfect marriage?
Can you make your marriage so perfect by yourself?
