I was shopping like a mad woman, when my mom and I decided to have coffee at the Wimpy. We were almost on our way out, when Roszelle came crying towards me. Now … let’s back track here…Roszelle left with Kyla in October last year. Haven’t seen her since. I’ve spoken to her and she was now a manager in Pretoria. So seeing her was unexpected. Seeing her crying was confusing.
I hugged her and then she showed me her engagement ring “It’s over”. I wanted to shout!!! I just knew she left because of a man. She of course denied it way back when. She told me she was going to go live with her Uncle in Pretoria. So that she could pay off her debt and make a better life for herself.
She upped and moved away from an as-good-as-she-can-get situation with Kyla, to run after a man. URGH. I suppose this man also didn’t want Kyla in the end because the last time I spoke with Kyla, she was living with her father.
So here she is, standing in front of me at the Wimpy. I was going for coffee to get a break and instantly I had more stress.
I asked about Kyla and she said that she is going to fetch Kyla to come live with her.
I cannot believe how often this little girl is being pushed and moved from home to home.
I wanted to know exactly when and if she has enrolled her in school again. I mean this little girl is going to Grade 1!!! On Wednesday!!!
Obviously she has not given this ANY thought. Within 30 minutes , we had organized accommodation (nogal affordable, central and half proper) and Kyla was enrolled in school. I got some second-hand school dresses from the school as well.
Now….how to get Kyla here. She was planning on fetching her with a taxi. You know the normal, no breaks, no lights, no license taxis. Her dad lives roughly 330 km from here. My parents being who they are, have now offered to fetch Kyla on Wednesday. So she will miss the first day of school but there’s worse things in life.
Now if anyone lives in Middelburg and wants to bring her to Pretoria, that would be nice!
