Teresa:Hey youtoo much info

She gave me a soft slap and we shared a laughter

[Narrated]

Veronica also joined the ride if dating young kids multiple young kids

I know you won't believe me when l say she spent about 30k to some stranger she met online since they are dating

30k is a lot of money right?

She gave this so called guy the money so that he can fix his documents with the aim of comming this side so they can get married

Veronica is doing this with the hopes that Charlotte won't be angryeven if she gets angry she will come around like Masego did

She is talking over the phone with one of the guys she is dating l guesssince she is blushing and confessing her love to the person over the phone even telling him that money is not a problem

Charlotte is behind her mother who is melting over the phone eavesdropping to her conversation

[Narrated]

Eric was still in bed when Teresa got in and kissed him

Teresa:Baby

Eric: Mhmm

Teresa:You look so bored and you just got back you ain't supposed to be so down like this

Eric:l am not bored babe

Teresa:How about we go for shopping or a massage?

Eric:Babe l don't need a massage or shoppersl need solutions to our problems

Teresa:Babe you just arrivedwhat problems are you talking about?

Eric:Teresa l still want that kid

Teresa:Eric this kid issue is the main reason why l kicked you out and you know that Masego doesn't wanna be our surrogate

Eric:Babe let's try her again

Teresa:You are really insane and obsessedyou you jumped to the opportunity of coming back because you wanna fuck my daughter?

Eric:Babe that process is part of fighting for our lovel love you Teresayou make the lights go deemyou got my heartyou are my queenI am someone else when I’m with you someone more like myself.our Love situation is like war: easy to begin but very hard to stop believe me Teresa you are my queenl post you everydayyou are my profile picturel sometimes wish to buy you roses and chocolate but l am not working because l am not yet officially a citizen in this country because our marriage is delayed delayed because we don't have that kidl love you Teresa

Teresa:l love you too baby but you know we can't have that kid

Eric:we canwe can l have a plan

Teresa:what plan?

Eric:I heard you in the morning when you were talking with Masego and she said something about an invented drug she heard about from Charlotte

Teresa:What about the drug?

Eric:we can drug Tami

Teresa:what?

Eric:Yes and once he starts to collapse we will fake the results and say Tami has a rare disease and it will cost millions and millions for him to regain his recoverysurely Masego won't afford then we will pretend to offer her money in that condition of her being our surrogate

Teresa:Eric!

Eric:Baby this is the easiest waywe both know Masego won't let Tami die

Teresa: That is impossible the doctors will see that it's the so called drug

Eric:We have broke doctors so we will bribe oneoh l forgot we will involve Charlotteplus she is working at the lab

Me: mom

Veronica:I know l was stupid and all of the sudden just after l sent the money his account disappearedl tried to switch accounts and search him stilll even signed in a new account and still l can't find him

I hugged her with pleasure since l know how l am going to deal with her
