The day spent in annoying fighting arguing and teasing n at the end of the day having a smile with memories of stupidity u did ....is actually the day you live for a while ...
Every argue is not meant due to ego ,every annoying is not done to disturb, n every fight is not made to hurt
Somewhere its just done to clear the misunderstanding at the same time so that u can add some more days with ur special one...
N at the end of the day u own the smile of peace , memories n of course imagination of the person u made smile too....
[Lufuno] When Noki, Chantelle and I arrived at the party it was nearly dark, The tavern is full of drunk people and the coloured lights make it hard to see anyone. Suddenly I got pushed from behind and spilled my drink. Of course, it was Sindi, calling me “the rural” and telling me that Mandla had just been in a fight over a girl. I can ignore her insults, but I am not sure about this news about Mandla so I go and look. I saw a tall guy with a bleeding nose being pulled away from Mandla and there is a girl who looks like the girl on his phone. I felt sick – and had to get some air outside, someone tried to pull me back into the tavern, but I pulled away and stumbled out into the night. When I got to the gate, I looked back at the tavern and saw Mandla with the girl. He saw me, so I turned and ran away, but realised I was lost. I was trying to flag down a taxi, but the lights blinded me and I heard brakes screeching. I fell back onto the pavement having a flashback with the sound of a body hitting metal, shattering glass and endless screaming. When I can around, Mandla was holding my head in his lap. He asked me why I had screamed Dudu’s name so I told him all about Dudu dying when the taxi she was in was hit by a truck, and how I had seen her body lying in the road. He told me about his sister Nandi who dies from an asthma attack, about how he blames his father for her death, because he wasn’t there. I told him that I thought the girl at the tavern was Nandi. He kissed me and told me that I need to learn to trust him.
[Mandla I wanted to go out and celebrate my team’s win with my friends. My aunt allows me to go, but I don’t want to be seen by the visitors who are drinking by the gate. I manage to escape without them seeing me and made my way to the tavern. On the way I saw a girl who reminded me of Nandi when she was a little girl, wobbling around in my aunt’s high heels. ⠀
The opposing team from the soccer match were there drowning their sorrows. ⠀
The girl like Nandi was near them, they were trying to give her drinks, but she was refusing and trying to leave, when one of the big guy, wearing a red cap grabs her and kisses her forcefully. I went over to tell them to let her go, and they told me to mind my own business. The guy in the red cap told me that the girl is his, but the girl shook her head.⠀
Next thing, Red Cap is pushing towards me aggressively, so I punched him in the face and made his nose bleed. He was so drunk, he missed when he tried to punch me again. He finally managed to graze my face with his fist, but by that time both of our teams have pulled us apart and we have retreated. The Nandi girl came with us, she was drunk and slurring, so I helped her find her friends and told them to take her home. She is only 15. As they left I saw Lufuno watching me from the tavern, looking like all her dreams have been crushed. She slipped away into the darkness before I had a chance to talk to her.⠀
.The other day, while exchanging messages with a friend, the topic of "not being fully understood" was briefly discussed. We both shared our views on the possibilities of it being so... It is indeed agreeable that if "understanding" lacks the "heart" element, understanding will only induce [Mis]Understanding.
Never through the ears only.
Never through the eyes only.
Never through the mind only.
Never through the emotions only.
Never tainted with a pre-judgement.
Never tainted with a pre-conception.
Never tainted with prejudice.
Never tainted with a [mis]understanding.
Never insistent to prove a bias "self" conception.
Never insistent to prove something not existent.
Never insistent to prove of a [mis]understanding found in the failure to understand.
Understanding will never be rightfully and fully achieved, if understanding is only done for the sake of understanding or for the sake of wanting to just justify a [mis]understanding - a distorted inauthentic pre-conception.
Is understanding really a [mis]understanding in the end?
Is understanding really offered right?
BEHOLD!!! 🙌🏼 Gaze in awe upon this!!! ✨My very first complete-ish comic. ✍🏼 It’s short and silly, but it has a beginning, an end, and I spent enough time on it that my neck will be stiff for days to come.
Because I’m not perfect at clarity just yet, here’s a little context: I was helping a friend memorize a scene 🎭, and I misinterpreted her question, thinking she was asking for the stage direction, when it was actually just her line. Also, you should read it from left to right, with the two small frames of our faces and the drawing of the script being the last thing you read.
This was a LOT of fun to make!!! 😄I will definitely be making more of these in the future!
