"Lokho Okuthandayo"

Okababa.

Ngemuva kwempilo ende, enempilo? nokugula okufushane ngesihe? indoda egama linguDavid yafa buthule embhedeni wayo. Unkosikazi wakhe oneminyaka engamashumi amane nesithupha ubeseceleni kwakhe,
njengabantabakhe, abazukulu nabazukulu abakhulu?

Lapho evala amehlo akhe, uDavid wamangala ukubona hhayi ubumnyama, kodwa ukukhanya okukhanya. Wezwa sengathi umphefumulo wakhe uphuma emzimbeni wakhe okhathele ngempela
bekuyi. Ngokunganaki wayekhangwa phezulu. Kwakunosizi lokudabuka ngenkathi eshiya umndeni wakhe ngemuva nokumangala njengoba ezizwa edlula
uhlobo lomnyango noma ukuvulwa. Kepha kwakungekho ukwesaba.

Wayesendaweni engenasici, egcwele ukukhanya okumhlophe okukhanyayo. Phambi kwakhe, ehlezi etafuleni lamapulangwe elicacile, kwakumi isithombe esiboshwe ngombala ofanayo omhlophe. UDavid
wabuka emehlweni akhe futhi wahlulwa imizwa yothando olumsulwa, oluzolile, oluhlala njalo.

“Sawubona, David.” Izwi lalifudumele futhi lalijwayele.

“Sawubona.” Izwi lakhe (namanje izwi lakhe!) Lalingumugwayi.

"Kungumsebenzi wami ukwamukela kini ngemuva kokuphila." "Cha, akulungile neze, yilungelo lami."

UDavida bekangakhulumi. Wazizwa emncane futhi engafanele ngaphambi kwalokhu kokukhanya okukhazimulayo.

“Ngiyazi ukuthi ucabangani, David. Ucabanga ukuthi awuyena owalapha ngempela. Ukuthi awenzanga lutho oluhle kakhulu, noma olubaluleke kakhulu, kuwe
impilo. Ukuthi ungumuntu nje ojwayelekile. Nginembile? ”

"Yebo."

“Ungamangala ukuthola ukuthi izakhamizi zethu eziningi eziholayo zazizizwa ngendlela efanayo lapho zifika. Uyazi, sinanzelela
imicabango emincane kakhulu nezenzo. Empeleni wenze okuningi okuhle ngesikhathi sakho emhlabeni. Ubungumyeni onothando nothembekile. A okuhle, ukupha
ubaba. Ubethembekile empilweni yakho yebhizinisi. Lezo zinto zibala kakhulu lapha. Futhi ubuhlale unomusa ezilwaneni zakho. ”

Kwakuyithuba lika David ukumomotheka. Yebo, wayenezinja eziningi ngesikhathi sokuphila kwakhe okude. Futhi babehlale begcwalisa indawo ekhetheke kakhulu enhliziyweni yakhe. Okungavinjiwe, izinkumbulo
ngabuya ngijabulisa: izinkumbulo zeBeagle emnandi encane, iBlacker Spaniel emnyama efana ne-ladyspant
UKerry Blue Terriers izinja ezimbili ayezithanda kakhulu.

“Yebo, yebo, yithina abagcina ukulandelela ondlunkulu namagundane asensimini, uyakhumbula? Ngakho-ke umusa wakho ezinjeni eziningi usindwe kunalokho kuwe
funa. ”

"Ngiyaqonda. Kepha? “

Ingelosi (wayeyingelosi, kunjalo) yaphakamisa isandla yayo yanikina ikhanda ngomusa. “Unemibuzo eyinkulungwane, ngiyazi. Kuthiwani ngabathandekayo onabo
shiya ngemuva? Kuthiwani ngabathandekayo abahamba ngaphambi kwakho? Kwenzekani manje? kunjani ukuhlala ezulwini? ”

UDavid avume ngekhanda.

“Ngeke ngikwazi ukuphendula yonke imibuzo yakho ngasikhathi sinye. Qiniseka: ngeke uhlukaniswe nalabo obathandayo. Ngokuqondene namalungiselelo ezindlu ”
wavuka edeskini? “Ake sihambele okuncane.” Ingelosi yasusa isandla sayo, futhi (ngaphandle kokuzwa kokunyakaza) zazilapho kwenye indawo.
Lokhu bekuyindawo ehluke kakhulu: kwakubukeka futhi kuzwakala kunjengomuntu kakhulu, kujwayelekile kakhulu. Babesemgwaqweni ojwayelekile, othule, bemi phambi kwebhodi eshayayo
indlu, futhi kwakungukuqala kwe-Autumn kusihlwa. Isandla sengelosi sasisesangweni lokhuni.

“Qhubeka,” kusho yena. "Yindlu yakho le."

Edidekile, uDavid wenza njengoba ayetsheliwe. Waphenduka wavula isango futhi wakhuphukela kulo oluhlaza? induku yazizwa ijwayelekile esandleni sayo. The
umnyango wawungavaliwe. Wangena phakathi.

Imizwa, ukubona, imisindo, ngisho nokunuka kwamgeza phezu kwakhe. Wayeyazi le ndlu. Impela kwakuyindlu encane akhulela kuyo; yebo kwakukhona i-china yakudala
ikhabethe ekhoneni, futhi kwakukhona iwashi le-tokkoo eli-ticker elaliyithokozise kakhulu esemncane. Kepha cha! Lokhu kwakuyindlu yakhe, indlu ayenayo
uthenge, ngemali ebolekwe emihlanu? idiphozi elikhulu?, ngemuva kwempi. Indlu izingane zakhe akhulela kuzo. Yebo, kunjalo? kwakukhona uphawu ku
ibhodi yesisekelo lapho uBilly omncane ayegaqele khona?

"Kizo zombili lezo zindlu, David." Ingelosi yaquleka. “Yindlu eyakhelwe izinkumbulo zakho. Leyo ndlela yokwakha esebenza lapha. ”

Kepha kwakudlula amakamelo, kunaphezu kwesofa namalambu namatafula. Kwakunabantu abeza bezombingelela, izingalo zabo bezeluliwe. Amehlo akhe agcwala
ngezinyembezi.

“Umama? Ubaba? ”

“Yebo, David, silapha.” Wayecishe wakhohlwa umsindo wezwi likayise elijulile. “Futhi kukhona uMalume uWill, kanye nomamncane uSomnandi, noCousin Michael. Sikhona
konke lapha, mfana! Besilokhu sibheke phambili kulolu suku isikhathi eside. ”

Amahora ambalwa alandelayo? noma bekuyizinsuku? ? kwakuyimpicabadala yemihlangano, ukuxhawulana, ukwanga, izinyembezi eziningi nokuhleka okukhulu. Amakha kamama wakhe. Umkhulu wakhe
ukumamatheka okuyigwegwe. Unkosikazi wokuqala womfowabo, obulewe kudala kuleyo ngozi yemoto: ubesekhohliwe ukuthi muhle kanjani. Futhi ukunambitheka kwakhe
i-apple cobbler kagogo kungenzeka yini ukuthi wayelahlekelwe yileyo nkumbulo eminyakeni edlule? Wayekhungathekile, elahlekile ekujuleni kwemizwelo. It
kwaba impumuzo enkulu lapho ezwa ingcindezi enamandla, emnene engalweni yakhe: isandla sengelosi, imholela ebheke emnyango wasekhishini. Kwakufudumele
Kuleli gumbi elikhanyayo, elithulayo, nelanga selishonile ligcwele amakhethini angasemuva?

"Kuningi ukuthatha konke ngesikhathi esisodwa, ngiyazi. Bengicabanga ukuthi uzodinga isikhashana kuwe. ”

"Ngiyabonga." UDavid avume ngekhanda. Waqala "umndeni wami", ebhekisa ngakugumbi elinabantu abaningi.

“Ungakhathazeki, David, ngeke bakhubeke. Kunesikhathi lapha, isikhathi sayo yonke ingxoxo yokugcina, yonke inkomishi yokugcina yekhofi, zonke izingoma zokugcina, konke okokugcina
umdlalo wokubanjwa. ”Ingelosi yamamatheka kakhulu. "Kuzofanela ukuthi ujwayele umbono wokuthi akekho umuntu lapha oya ndawo. Uqedile ngokusho okuhle
kulabo obathandayo. Ngeke usalahlekisela. ”

Lapho incazelo yamazwi engelosi ingena, uDavide wezwa umuzwa ojulile wokuthula nokwamukelwa kusakazeka kuye. Kodwa ngokumangazayo, ngokungafanele, lapho
kwakuwubuhlungu bokuphelelwa yithemba. Kungenzeka kanjani lokho? WayeseZulwini elashwa ngokugula kwakhe nosizi. Abathandekayo bakhe abalahlekile babemzungezile, futhi
wayazi, ngokuqiniseka okukhulu, ukuthi umndeni wakhe emhlabeni uzojoyina yena ngesikhathi esifanele. Yini enye eyayikhona ukuyifisa, ukuyifisa?

“Ngiyazi ukuthi ucabangani, David. Akuphelele, akunjalo? ”

“Cha, akunjalo.” Wazizwa enamahloni, engabongiwe. “Ngeke ngikwazi ukukuchaza, kodwa kuyiqiniso. Mhlawumbe angihlali lapha. ”

“Amampunge. Mhlawumbe ngingakuchazela lona. ”Ingelosi yagqolozela ilandelana lezikhonkwane zokhuni ngasemnyango ongemuva. Amehlo kaDavid alandela. Kukhonkwane ngalinye lalilengiswa inja
i-leash, isikhumba sayo sicwebezela ngokusetshenziswa. "Kukhona abangani abambalwa abadala ongakaze ubabone, anginjalo David?"

Njengokungathi kuphendulwa, kuzwakale umsindo we-paws emnyango wangemuva, neqhubu lokukhonkotha okulangazelayo: ukwamukelwa okukhethekile okugcinelwe inkosi okuphuthelwe isikhathi eside.

“Yebo, bonke balapha, David. Uyabona, awukaqedi ukuvakasha. Uyibonile indlu. Manje sekuyisikhathi sokubona igceke. ”
