Chapter 5

Thelma got the bottle of whiskey and opened it.. She smelled it one last time and went to the bathroom and poured the entire whiskey in the sink.. “Am done drinking, I will no longer be a slave to this.” Thelma walked to the bedroom and cleared Adam’s things and packed them in boxes.. She needed a distraction form the urge she was feeling.. Afterwards she swept the entire house by the time she was done, she was exhausted..
“Oh no, I forgot to take my drugs.” she exclaimed.. with the drama that was going on in her life, she had totally forgot.. The reminder of her disease had made her realise she had a few more years with her children.. Her only happiness and pride… She had kept it a secret from everyone even Adam.. she didn’t want him to pity her or stay out of pity… She felt her body deteriorate by the day ..her brain tumour was getting worse and the fear of leaving her children alone increased by the day…. Thelma walked to Favour’s bedroom, the blanket was on the floor and her thumb was in her mouth.. which was her habit since she was a baby.. Thelma smiled to herself and covered her child.. She knelt down and prayed silently making sure she didn’t wake her child..” Lord I know it’s been awhile, am not worthy of your grace but I ask that you give me more time to take care of my children and I pray that as I depart, my children will be taken care of and will always stick together.. please father hear my plea..Amen.”
Thelma stood up and switched off the light.. On her way to Mapalo’s room she felt dizzy and almost fell..She touched the wall for support and stayed in the small position until she regained her strength.. This was worse than she thought, “Lord please give me strength” She said.

Thelma managed to get to Mapalo’s bedroom.. She watched as her youngest child slept.. He looked so peaceful, she went closer and kissed his forehead..” sweet dreams my angel, I love you.” Thelma walked out of the room feeling more fulfilled than ever.. Once she was in the bedroom she got her pen and wrote. ” To Favour my beloved child, I know by the time you will be reading this I will be far gone…. I don’t want you to despair or feel sad…I want you to understand that everything in this world happens for a reason… Your father loves you very much and please forgive him. I don’t want you to poison your precious heart with hatred.. The child your father’s wife is carrying is also your young brother or sister love him or her as you love Mapalo.. know that I will always be there for you.. I love so much… Yours mum..

She got another piece of paper and wrote.. To Adam, I know things did not end on a good note for us.. my love for you is the same and I will always love you.. I just want to ask you for a Favour promise to take care of our children for the sake of the love you once felt for me..They need you Adam, don’t forsake them.. love Thelma….
The last letter was addressed to Mapalo.. my shining star, am sorry I let you down so many times.. Hope you can forgive me.. In life you will meet alot of obstacles but don’t let that bring you down..you have potential to became the greatest person if you work hard.. Always remember you are capable of becoming who you wish to be.. Am sorry I won’t be there to share your success but remember that wherever I will be, I will watch over you..
