Background: Due to financial reasons, my brother works in the Free State during the week, and only returns home to GP on a Friday evening to spend his time with his wife and children (she’s employed here). Anyhows, a week or so ago, they attempted a break-in at their house whilst she was home alone with the kids, fortunately, the neighbours were alerted and managed to chase them off. But its a worry.
So Saturday morning around 7:30am my brother phones me, he had a work function on the Friday night and was only then leaving to come to J’burg, however, he cannot get hold of his wife, the phone just rings and he is frantic, would I mind just dropping by the house to go check if she is ok?
I jump in the car and take a dash through to the house, and I find it tightly locked up and no answer on ringing the bell at the gate. So like a true soldier I scale the wall (I was VERY proud of myself in being able to). As I leap down though, I get my first inkling of something “not quite right” here. A strange car parked quite out of sight in the far corner of the garden.
Never mind, task at hand is to raise the sister in law from her (hopefully) deep slumber. I knock on the front door, no answer, I knock on the kids bedroom windows, no answer, I eventually climb over another little wall dividing the front and back yards, and find myself by her bedroom window, I knock and holler (and honestly people, I was LOUD), and I get no answer whatsoever. I then did what any self respecting, (semi) concerned sister-in-law would do… I pulled open the window and pulled the curtains away.
As the saying goes though - what has been seen, cannot be unseen.
Turns out she’s been having this glorious affair with a 26 year old chappie from Klerksdorp. (She’s in her early 40’s)
Awkward, never mind all the other issues thats now up for discussion. Its not going to be an image that I’ll be able to discard from my mind in a hurry. :-[
