Uye wachukumisa itshatshazi yena ebimchukumisile nje, kwaye wathi, “Ewe.” Yena waba umhla-o-Isihiba, umhla-a-phobe, umhla umngeni. Wayebeke umhla uDaniyeli ngokukhwela kwinqwanqwa liphezulu eyaziwa uluntu, phantse phezulu Mount Everest, yaye kunzima ukuba awunamoya ezicekethekileyo umoya apho. Oku Usenokude ezisongela ubomi.

Wee guququ zibase nge gid kwaye baqalisa ukubaleka kwaye kamsinya phambi. Kodwa Nina kwafuneka ixesha elaneleyo ukuba, kwaye ubukele umzimba wakhe enyakanyakeni iibhulukhwe zakhe, kunye neentungo zayo dystrophy kunye namagxa, umzekele awunamoya waqeshisa ngaso, lokuvala amehlo, engamboni ammise ezanga kunye n

Kodwa Doggie nomkhosi wakhe ezimhlophe sabuya yakhe ezingqondweni ngamandla onke, kwaye baba endleleni egodukayo.

Wabaleka njengomoya, ngokungathi wayesele ukubaleka iikhilomitha zakhe ezintlanu. Waziva eliphezulu, nangona ngenkankulu wayesazi ukuba waziva njani, oko wayesele kwikholeji ekubeni Watya. Kwaye waziva yimincili, nangona ngenkankulu wayesazi ukuba waziva njani, kwakusele kudlule ixesha elide kangaka ekubeni wazivumela bazive. Ke ukuba umfazi wasemzini ezifana, UBilly becinga. kodwa zobungangamela, apho kunye nabo nezinja ezimhlophe. Nto ngayo, izandla zakhe ezomeleleyo, amehlo ethandekayo, emlonyeni yakhe, wabafazii engalindelekanga, ukungafihlisikuthetha, into unkqonkqozile ngaphandle. Oh inkwenkwe, oku akwenzeki, oko? Hayi ngoku, kungabi njengoko uDaniyeli, hayi nale ntombazana Nutty ngubani umntu uyavuma zukoko Tom kunye evader werhafu, ukuyiqala. Yena mhlawumbi uza kuwa uthando kuye okanye ukuba ambambe okanye zombini. Kunye nexesha lokugqibela ukuba happenedóthe ukuwa eluthandweni into, hayi yokubamba thingóit zonke ophele kakubi kakhulu. Kwaye loo nto, njengoko azithanda. Linda de uyeva, ukuba sithe ukuba kude, ungubani ngokwenene yaye yintoni ngokwenene. Igqwetha kubi ngokwaneleyo. Kodwa arhente Baie? Amava wayesazi ukuba ukwazi kwangaphambili into yokuba umfazi nako ukuqhelana, kodwa wamangaliswa yinto akazange ndizakufumana phezu.

Mhlawumbi yena baphuma kunye naye ngenxa nje yokuba ucinga ukuba uDaniyeli! wayezibuza. UDaniyeli kwi ifoto, kunye Iapatmenti cwinana, inja ogqibeleleyo?

Kwaye yena uyazi ukuba uDaniyeli igqwetha, kunjalo? Mhlawumbi ukuba Doorman bigmouth uPete wamxelela. Okanye umntu afunde ezinye iingxelo okanye ngeposi okanye inani izinto kwinjoli ukuba wayeya kuba wabunika kude. yinto elungileyo ukuba balumke ukufihla umsebenzi wakhe lokwenene nesazisi. Ebene- kwi gunjana. Yawunqika ityala elikhulu. Uye an- sisithethi. Yena Sendizihlambile kwi emphandeni yakhe. Ngubani wayesazi ukuba le UNina esikwaziyo? Ngaba akukho mda?

Zonke wayesazi ukuba kwixesha elizayo, wayefuna ukuba kuloo ebhafini naye.

Ngexesha UNina ubehamba izinja uze ekuzukisekeni nabo ekhaya, iinyawo zakhe za zisopha ukusuka kwiindawo ezisixhenxe ezahlukeneyo. Isithathu unyawo ekunene kwaye ezine ngasekhohlo. Wahlala phezu ngohlangothi ebhedini yakhe, ukucinga ukuba yintoni sidengendini waba, ngelixa ngokusebenzisa izixhobo hydrogen peroxide kunye band, njengoko Sam siziva walenca ezikhondweni kweenyawo zakhe. Yeah uDaniyeli ndaphawula heróyou'd baye ukuba uHelen Keller hayi toóbut wayesazi malunga ibhate. Wayesazi malunga xilongo.

Kodwa eneneni amcela phandle. Kwaye wenza ukuba kwenzeka. Ke musani uyadana, yena ngengqiqo, wathi xa ithe unina wayo, wayebhekisela kumhla, hayi xilongo.

Wathabatha uphefumle xa, uzama ukukhumbula ukuba t-shirt, isegumbini layo kunye ngevumba layo musky.
