Half an hour later Cleo heard knocking on the door. she asked herself whether it was Lerato, did she get off work early? When she opened the door, she saw a tall dark man holding flowers, it was Colby, “have you been crying” he asked “It was never my intention to hurt you, if you’d let me in, I’d be able to explain”
“Please leave”, Cleo replied
“Just let me explain”
“I said leave!” she shut the door sat down and started crying again. Her heart was throbbing, she loved him with every fibre of her being, she doesn’t know how she’ll ever let him go.
When Lerato arrived Cleo told her everything, about how Colby cheated, how heart broken she was, and how her reality has become nothing but an illusion. Her world was crashing below her feet. she was at a loss. Lerato wasn't surprised though. She had seen Colby with his boyfriend numerous time at the bar she was working at, but she could never bring herself to tell her friend that the love of her life was a closeted gay man, who was using her as a front to hide from reality, instead of accepting his identity.
"So what are you going to do?" Lerato asked.
"I don't know, I still love him and I don't wanna let go him.... but I also do want him to be in forced relationship" Cleo replied.
"You really love him don't you, well its not surprising considering the fact that you've been with him for so long"
"I'm an idiot aren't I? I don't know what to do" Cleo started crying again.
Lerato isn't very good at comforting people and felt extremely awkward whilst watching her friend break down and cry, so she did what she does best. Say what ever comes to her mind first in hopes that it'll make sense to the person she is talking to and that they calm down. " why don't you try using Korobela on him" she blurted out. Cleo started giggling at the idea her friend just threw at her, " you really don't believe in that do you, LOVE POTION!? hahaha, that'll never work"
"But... don't you wanna give it a try? it might just work for you"
"Do you know where I can get some?"
