Reality hit Lerato the hard way. TT was using her and even using her to get Tshepi to forgive him and put blame on her. This made Lerato to feel really bad and down, she felt so guilty and embarrassed that she broke a beautiful sisterly relationship for a man who didn’t even value her one bit.
She really wanted to see Tshepi but she was embarrassed and ashamed of her deeds, she wondered how will she face her friend? Tshepi saw a sister in her “A sister wouldn’t hurt her sister in such a manner” thought Lerato while collapsing on a chair close to Tshepi’s room.
She decided that she will either hang or poison herself as she can’t look at herself in the mirror. Without thinking twice, she went to her room at Res, took a belt, hanged it on the ceiling and sat down thinking about everything. She felt there’s no other option but eventually she thought “okay let me reach out to someone online”.
She went on Facebook the first thing she saw was a post by TT saying “LERATO YOU ARE A WITCH HOW CAN YOU SEDUCE YOUR BEST FRIEND’S BOYFRIEND? NOW YOUR BEST FRIEND IS HOSPITALISED BECAUSE OF YOU. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED YOU UGLY WITCH”
This made things worse she didn’t try to reach out but she now believed death is the only way out. She hanged herself in her room.
Back at the hospital TT entered Tshepi’s room with his head facing down showing remorse. The moment Tshepi saw him she screamed out in anger “Get out!!! Get out of here!!! Nurse!!! TT leave my room now!!! Nurse!!!” He just stood there speechless not knowing what to do or say. A nurse came running thinking something is wrong “what’s wrong miss?” Asked the heavy breathing nurse. “Please tell this guy to leave… I don’t want to see him please leave and never come back” Tshepi said while sobbing. The nurse gently pushed TT out of the room while he was still shocked, speechless and confused at what to do. His brain shut down and only came back to reality after noticing he’s no longer in the room. He looked lost the nurse just said to him he shouldn’t come back here or Tshepi might lose this pregnancy and it will be his fault.
This woke him up fully because he didn’t know she’s pregnant “what!? Wait Tshepi is pregnant? How come I don’t know? The baby is mine, right?” The nurse looked at him and said “If she didn’t tell you that means she doesn’t want you around” she looked at him in a way you’d think she’ll shout at him but she walked away after warning him to leave or he’ll be arrested if he doesn’t oblige.
He just stood there more confused than ever….
