Thirty minutes passed and finally Eric arrivedl can't believe that Eric and Masego actually hugged each otherthey gave Eric the warmest welcome than ever before then minutes later Veronica got in with Teresa and they screamed

"SURPRISE"

The confused Teresa gave them a glance without even knowing what to say to whothen she got blown away when she saw Eric appearing from the passage and right behind Eric there was Masego

Masego:Momeven though we can meet our differences l will forever be your childit's so unfortunate that we don't choose our parents but l am grateful to have you as my motherthe fact that you name me Masego(luckies) it makes me realise that your love is unlimited for meyou chose Masego (Luckies) over a Lesego (lucky) and for that matter l see no reason to oppose your choice of love when you allowed me to move in with my Tami mom l learnt that age has got nothing to do with love or maturity

Teresa begun to shed tearsEric went to her and reached her hand and squeezed it

Teresa:Sego..

Masego:(teary) l am not done mommom l've realised that Parents are the only God to help and guide you in your life!Guys a mother is she who can take the place of all othersbut whose place no one else can take.a mother always has to think twice once for herself and once for her child.The best sentence ever spoken- "I love you mom" .

The everybody in the room got so teary as much as Masego wasTami went closer to Masego as a pillar of strengthening her as much as she was emotional

Masego:l know there is a video trending there of my mother dancing on the tableyes to you she is a drunkard and to me she is a mothera mother who makes me laugh wiped my tears hugged me tight watched me succeed saw me fail cheered me on and kept me strong! I 64 you mom!

She went closer and wiped Teresa's tearswhilst Tami was wiping her's

Teresa:I Loved you from your first breath I'll Love you till my last.Love u Masego

Masego:l love you too momEven though I'm all grown up and will have my own family I will still need my mom...I love you mom and l will support every source of happiness you choose to have

Teresa:Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.

Masego:l agreeEric please say something

Eric: First of all thank you Masego for your blessings
Teresa I wish dreams were like wishes and wishes came true cause in my dreams I'm always with you

Veronica:Tell them Ricky!

Everyone broke and laughed

Eric:Nothing is perfect but when I’m with you everything is perfectBaby Terry let me remind you that true love does not have a happy ending because true love never ends and Love is like a wind we can’t see it. But we can feel itwhat l feel for you is real TeresaI don’t care how hard being together is or how you are nothing is worse than being apart.

Masego:Age is no guarantee of maturity.

Tami:YesEvery love story is beautiful but yours is my favorite.

Teresa:Guys you are too muchcan l have a bathroom

Teresa headed to the bathroomEric followed her

Masego:People l think we are done with the most important partyou can have the drinks and the stage is yours of cause
