Josiah's Story: Part 2

by Amy | Score: 4850

Distraught and heartbroken, Chhaya begs for Josiah to stay with her but the divorce proceeds and he leaves for Africa.
In Africa, he meets Zenzele, an intelligent engineer who he dates for a year before marrying. They have a son together named Coby. Josiah finally graduates from college and goes for his law degree.
One day, Zenzele meets Tivra, Chhaya's older sister, who soon realizes she is married to Josiah. She gives her a paint brush as a gift before following her to their house.
Josiah is furious but Zenzele does not understand why. Chhaya soon comes to Africa as well to beg Josiah to forgive her and marry her. Josiah refuses, instead filing a restraining order against Tivra and Chhaya.
Zenzele, confused, consults Josiah's friend Aria, a handyman, who unwillingly tells her the entire story. Furious with Chhaya and Tivra, she whips them when they try to return to the couples' house at night.
However, Tivra uses her influence to cause Zenzele's job termination. 
Josiah refuses to ever speak to Chhaya ever again and sues her for breach of the restraining order. The judge sentences her to pay a fine only, after her father bribed the judge.
Zenzele and Josiah moved with Coby from Cape Town to the United States. Zenzele wrote a story about the entire thing and was hired by a publisher. The book became incredibly popular but one of Kaleb's labourers found the book and informed Kaleb quickly.
Instead of getting angry, Kaleb reached out to Josiah to apologize to him and connect. The two became friends after mee.
