Masego:I don't know but l don't want him here

Teresa: Masego remember this is my house and you are approaching your thirties that means you should be having your own house where you will make your own rules

Teresa went nearer to Masego and pulled her closer

Teresa:Baby girl there is no one or even you who is going to tell me to date and who must l not dateLove is a policy without terms and conditionsI didn’t choose him My heart did and you are the last person to judge me because l supported you and let that loser boyfriend of yours to stay in my house now this is how you react if my bring my boyfriend over?

Masego moved back

Masego:Mom so you think it's a good thing a mother and child can do to bring their boyfriends over to stay?Mom l am not saying you mustn't datedate Mon because at the end of the day you deserve to be loved and be happy but with your age matesmom that guy is so young and attractive and he can date every girl he want then why you?

Teresa: Because he loves me and l love him tooif two hearts feel the same way nobody can I interfere

Masego:Mom you are his ticket to escape povertyl heard that the economy is bad in Nairobi

After those words Masego's emotions were everywhere so she departed the room to go and freshen up

Teresa: Masego MasegoMasego come back here and finish what you have started

Eric appears from the passage

Eric:Leave her alone babe

Teresa:Did you hear our conversation?

Eric:yes

Teresa:l am sorry love if you are offendedl think she is still shocked

Eric:It's okay babycome here

Teresa went closer to Eric and they hugged

[Masego]

I've always agree with most of my mother's stupid thoughts and decision since she believes that no child can guide a mother but this time she is totally insane

Guys everything is clear herethat boy can my mother not usthat guy is way too hot to date an old woman like my mother

My mother is a fat and an old wrinkled womanwhere as that guy looks more like a bodybuildertall and dark in complexionhe is everything every woman can recommend they why does he choose my mother?

Well l am meeting up with Charlotte and l guess l am late since my brain hasn't been functioning well l didn't check time

You see there she isl am right when l said l am late

I went to her table and we exchanged greetings

Charlotte:You look so down

Me:l am frustratedpissedangry and embarrassed

Charlotte:is it the aunty and boyfriend saga?

Me:Of cause who else?

Charlotte:Yeah nobody expected thatl am sure those ladies you invited got the headlines and gossip of the weak for themselvesl mean how dare she drop a bombshell in front of more than enough peoplesome of them don't even love heryho!But l must say that guy is really got a snack

Arghguys Charlotte is not into boys she is kind of a lesbian but she dresses like a girl and walks like a girldo everything like a girl but she doesn't do make up and weaves or wear dresses and she is not attached to guys and l've never heard her compliment a guy this is for the first time l hear herDo you see how handsome this guy is

Me:That's not a positive thing to say Charlmy mother's financial stability is at recession because my mother obvious does everything for him whilst we obviously know that he has a girlfriend or girlfriends somewhere in the world and l have to step back watch when he is strictly using my mother

Charlotte:It is what it is girl

Me:I can't let it be what it isl have to do something Charl

Charlotte: Something like what girl?

Me: Anything that will make my mother realise that this guy is  absolutely up to no good

Charlotte:Well good luck and please take this as a friendly warning that you and Tami might end up on streets if you do a wrong move

Me:It's okay to try and it not okay to fail to try

Charlotte:You know qoutes can mess with your mindset and they can mislead sometimes

Me:Not this time

Charlotte giggled good for her that she takes this as a joke whilst l am deeply and deadly hurt and embarrassed

Charlotte:Masego you are determined to get rid of your handsome stepfather?Never mention handsome that is my age and hot?

Me:it's not funny Charlottestop it

Charlotte:l am sorry but he is really handsome

Talking to Charlotte is like talking to a mute you won't find any answers or good advices

Me:mxm what are you going to order?

Charlotte:I am gonna have some

Taking the menu....
