A jeep honed at the gate. the gateman peeped and behold, it was Mrs. Emily. Daniel’s mother. He quickly opens the
gate. Mrs. Emily drove in with her Lexus jeep. Daniel went and hug his mum. He was very happy to see her and thanked God that she arrived safely. Now he can now introduce Ella to his mum” he smiled.
Mrs. Emily was running on her running machine exercising herself a little. Ever since she traveled to London, she hasn’t done an amazing exercise. The door opened and Daniel walked in with Ella to see his mum on a running machine. He smiled and wrapped his arms around, Ella.
“Hello mum” Daniel greeted. Mrs. Emily looked up with a smile. But, the smile vanished when she saw him with a girl.
“Mum, I want to introduce a very special friend of mine. very special. Her name is Ella. Ella meet my mother” Daniel voiced out.
“Good afternoon ma” Ella greeted with a smile. Mrs. Emily ignored her greeting giving her a bad look. She took her towel and cleaned her body. Ella became sad. She wondered what she has committed to attracting such a look. Is like, she has to dislike her already.
“How are you” Mrs. Emily finally asked Ella.
“I’m fine ma. Thank you ma” Ella replied. Mrs. Emily opened the door and stare back at Ella again with a frown face before leaving the sitting room. Ella became scared.
“Aww listen” Daniel didn’t even know what to say. He was surprised at how she reacted towards Ella. He was hoping that she will be happy for him that he has finally found his soulmate and now, the reverse has turned out to be the case.
“It seems your mum doesn’t like me?” Ella asked sadly. “No no. she’s just tired you know. she acquired a long trip. I’m sure she’s just tired that’s all. Don’t worry. I will talk to her later, she’s my mum” Daniel said and Ella nodded. “Mmm. come on, let’s take some drink” Daniel said hugging Ella to himself. they laughed heading to the bar.
