My Life After I Introduced My Girlfriend To My Mother – part 6
“Are we close yet?” she asked
“Can we see your house from here?”
“Except you climb that tree” I replied, pointing to an oil bean tree that was along the road.
“How is your mother like?”
“My mom is lovely, kind and down to earth”
“Ok…” she said, maintaining an uncertain facial expression that made it difficult for me to interpret what was going on in her mind
“This is the first time a guy is introducing me to his mother and I pray she likes me and don’t create misunderstandings”
“Don’t say that. My mom won’t create any misunderstanding. She is godly and won’t create problems, trust me”
“Sorry for my language, but I still can’t forget a statement you made weeks back”
“That you are the only child of your mother, that you love her, she loves you and doesn’t joke with you and that…..”
I then quickly understood the area she was going and I cut in, “You are worried that my mother may disapprove you?”
She then cut me a look, without replying me
“Listen Dera, no matter what anyone says, you are the woman I’m building my future with. I chose you Dera and trust me, I can never let go” I said, assuring her
I wondered why she nurtured such negative thoughts, that I would listen to my mother over her.
Only if she knew how much I’ve suffered in the hands of girls, she wouldn’t even think twice that I may leave her.
“Are we close yet?”
And that was when it occurred to me to inquire the reason she kept asking if we have reached or not
“So I can first, pee, organize myself, say a little prayer before facing your mother. I really want this to go well. I don’t want her to hate me and then create misunderstanding between us. I love you and I can’t afford to loose you.”
She was calm throughout the journey, not knowing that she was battling with nervousness.
She also said, she had been praying, so that what her sister said doesn’t come through, about us not being compatible
And I became emotional, realising how much I meant to her. I meant a whole lot to her.
I was nervous, provided with the hiccups that kept interfering with the journey, praying that she doesn’t relate it to what her sister and her pastor said, not knowing that my girl was battling with tension of meeting my mother and I failed to notice.
I then held her, reassured her that, everything will go well. That my mother must approve her and that even if she doesn’t, it would be my first time of disobeying her.
“So, I want you to trust me. I love you more than life itself” I added
She then took a deep breath, exhaled and released a beautiful calm smile.
I was holding her hands, reassuring her of my stand with her, not knowing that a venomous snake was creeping direct to her……do not stop reading..follow link below
