Mamma is Coming to Town!! Part 2

 Cynthia has completely surprised the young couple. They were expecting her to be traveling solo. All Luke can do is wonder who she is. 
*Cynthia* "Now I know I didn't tell you that I was bringing someone with me, but I just wanted to surprise you all. Luke. Laura.  I would like you to meet my girlfriend Megan."
*Megan* "Hi! It's so nice to meet both of you. Cyndi has told me so much about you."
Luke is in shock and Laura is speechless.
*Luke* "Whoa! What? What did you just say?"
*Cynthia* "This is my Girlfriend Megan. We have been together for almost 7 months. Megan just moved in with me."
*Luke* "And your deciding to tell me about it right now in the middle of a busy airport. Mom, this is insane. I think you could have at least called and told me you were in a relationship with someone. How hard is that?"
*Cynthia* "I know, Sweetie. Don't be upset.  I did want to tell you but I just figured since I was flying down to see you.  I would just surprise the two of you."
*Luke* "Well, who wouldn't be upset, Mom. I mean I had no idea this was coming. 7 months? could have mentioned this long ago. Are you really serious about this relationship? Or is this some phase you are going through?"
*Cynthia* "Luke! Why on earth would you ask me a question like that? No, It is not a phase. I have never been more happy with a person than I have been Megan. I was down and out after my last nasty break up with the opposite sex. Megan was there for me as a friend in the beginning. *Cynthia turns to look at Megan with affection* And then one day we realized that we were falling for each other. So here we are."
*Luke* "Okay....okay I got it. Let's  just make our way out of here and get some dinner."
*Cynthia* "Yes, but first I need to use the ladies room."
*Megan* "I'll go with you. I hate using those airplane toilets."
*Cynthia* "We'll be back in a minute."
 As soon as the two have disappeared into the ladies restroom Luke just looses his composure.
*Luke * "Wow!  What the @#$% is she thinking! I am totally speechless.....Just when I thought she had stopped doing these things to get attention.  %@*#!"
*Laura* "Baby, don't get yourself worked up about all of this. It's okay. I think your Mom was sincere when she spoke of her feelings for Megan."
*Luke* "Of course she is sincere.  She believes she is too. Until she decides she is board and moves on to the next.
*Laura* "Ummm.....Luke." * Now she is at a loss for words*
*Luke chuckles trying to find some humor in their conversations that was just moments ago now came true.* "And you were worried you would make a wrong first impression. She managed to shock the hell out of me again. Just when I finally thought she was gonna grow up and stop all this crazy @#%^!"
*Laura* "Luke...Baby you need to calm down. I know your furious with her for springing this on you. But she is your Mom and she looks very happy. Lets just make the best of it and move on."
*Luke with frustration and disappointment in his voice * "It's just she always has to be over the top with everything she does. I was really hoping it would be different this time. I really thought she was coming down here to just visit me and finally meet you. But no she has to make it about her and her fabulous new lifestyle!"
*Laura tries to comfort her distraught lover. She has never seen him so very upset.* "Luke....relax,... let it go. Let's just enjoy ourselves and have a good time. You will feel so much better once you do that. If you can't do it for your Mother. Then please do it for me. It pains me to see you so upset."
*Luke* "Your right. It's not fair to you. *Luke takes a deep breath* "Okay, okay I'm better now.
*Laura kisses him* "Good, now lets go eat some dinner."
Cynthia and Megan have now made their back and are ready to leave.
*Cynthia* "So do you have a special place in mind for dinner?"
*Laura* "Actually, yes. The restaurant I work at. That is where we are going for dinner."
*Cynthia* "Wonderful! Luke has told me you are quite the cook. I cannot wait to try it out."
*Luke * "Okay, well lets head on out of hear. Laura has made sure we have a table reserved. The place can get very busy on a Friday night."
So the 4 make their way from the airport to the restaurant. Luke is doing his best to enjoy the evening and give his Mom a chance. He just hopes she doesn't have anymore surprises in store for him.
Stay Tuned!!!
To see how dinner goes at Ma Chérie

Mamma is Coming to Town!! Part 1

Finally, Luke and Laura have made it to the airport. Running casually late and surprised to see that the plane did not arrive yet.
*Luke* "Oh! Wow! I guess the plane hasn't landed yet. Boy, did we get lucky."
*Laura feeling bad about taking so long to get ready* "Don't you mean I got lucky. Since I was the one that took forever to get ready. You're not still mad about it are you?"
*Luke stops and turns to look at her*
"Babe, I could never stay mad at you. Besides I know you already and I can see your nervous about all of it. So am I."
*Laura* "Nervous would be an understatement."
*Luke* "Everything will be fine.... I'm gonna go ask the girl at the desk if she knows exactly when the plane is landing."
*Laura walks over to take a seat feeling more nervous with every step. While Luke finds out information.*
*Desk Attendant* "The plane should be landing any minute, Sir. And the passengers should be de-boarding the plane shortly after."
*Luke* "Thanks."
*Luke takes his seat next to Laura and fills her in on the whereabouts of the plane.*
*Laura reaches out and touches his hand* "I love you....."
*Luke* "I know you do. I love you too."
*Laura* "How on earth do you stay so calm right now? I feel  jittery and restless. The anticipation is killing me!"
*Luke smiles and understands exactly how she feels* "That's normal that you feel that way. Besides after what I have told you about my Mother. I understand why you would be so nervous."
*Laura* "I know...I know.. I just want everything to work out perfect. I would hate to give your Mom the wrong first impression."
*Luke* "I think I am more worried that my Mother will give you the wrong first impression. It wouldn't be the first time for her. That is for sure. But she is my Mom and she is really excited about meeting you."
*They lean in closer to each other. Feeling comforted by each others proximity.*
*With a simultaneous sigh of relief they both feel better that they were able to talk though all their mix of emotions. And for a moment nothing else seems to exist around them....
*Young child* "Mommy! Mommy! I see Daddy!!"
*Startled by the small voice they turn to see that passengers are arriving.*
*Laura whispers in his ear* "Isn't he the cutest? He is so happy to see his Daddy."
*Luke* "Yeah he is."
More passengers begin to file out but Luke's Mom is still yet to be seen.
*Laura*"I don't see her. We are not waiting for the wrong plane are we?"
*Luke* " No, this is the right one. She should be out soon."
*Luke pops up a soon as he sees her taking Laura by the hand as he moves. Feeling so nervous and wanting all of it to be over already.*
 Cynthia immediately embraces her son and showers him with kisses.
*Cynthia* "Luke sweetie I have missed you so much. Oh my goodness.... I am so happy to see you."
*Luke* "It's good to see you too, Mom. I want to introduce you to Laura."
Cynthia turns to greet Laura. Laura smiles and says hello.
*Laura* "It's so wonderful to finally meet you."
*Cynthia* "I feel the same way, Sweetie! Come and give me a hug."
While the three continue to say their hellos a woman comes off the plane to stand next to Cynthia.
Luke and Laura are surprised by her presence. Especially Luke since he has no idea who this woman is.
*Cynthia* "There you are. I was beginning to wonder where you were. I want to introduce you two to someone very special....

To be concluded tomorrow!!!

Mamma Is Coming To Town!!

Meet Cynthia Ann Rawlins-Cooper!!
Age: Old enough to be Luke's Mom [She refuses to tell me how old she ;)]
Marital Status: Divorced
Hometown: Seattle, Washington
Cynthia was always a wild one. She was pregnant at 17 with Luke and married his father at 18 years of age. A year later they divorced and she raised Luke on her own. It wasn't easy being a single mom but she made it work and Luke managed to grow up into a responsible adult despite her waywardness at times.
Luke has put off Laura meeting his Mom for an entire year because his Mother can be quite eccentric and tends to scare any decent girl away. She is finally coming down for a visit and meeting Laura for the first time. Luke hasn't been this nervous in a long time......
 It's late afternoon and Luke is pacing the floor waiting on Laura to finishing getting ready so they can go pick up his Mom at the airport. He keeps looking down at his phone to check the time.
He walks over to the stairs and calls up to Laura...
*Luke* "Babe! I'm sure you look beautiful. We gotta go. I don't want to hit any traffic and be late."
*Laura* " Okay, okay just give me five more minutes!!"
Laura mumbles and talks to herself
*Laura* "Why? Why, of all days for my hair to be a disaster?! Ugh!...."
While Luke contemplates whether to go upstairs and see what is taking her so long. The doorbell rings. Luke walks over to answer the door.
*Luke* " Who in the world would be at the door right now?"
Luke answers the door and sees that it is Laura's sister Michelle.
*Michelle* "Hey Luke, sorry to show up unannounced. I need to talk to Laura."
*Luke* " is not a good time, Michelle. We are just heading out the door to go pick up my Mom from the airport."
*Michelle* "Oh! I'm sorry I didn't know. I haven't talked to Laura since she called me about Benjamin. That's why I came over."
*Luke* "Yeah, I'm sure she would love to talk to you about it. She was quite upset after she hung up with you that day. But we are already running late. I'm just waiting for her to finish up."
*Michelle* "Okay, sorry for the bad timing. Just tell her I stopped by and when she gets a chance to call me. So we can talk..."
*Luke*"Will do...I know she will be relieved to know that you stopped by."
*Michelle* " Thanks Luke. I guess I'll see ya'll later. Bye."
*Luke* "Bye."
Laura finally makes her way downstairs. Just missing her sister by a matter of seconds. 
*Laura* "Hey handsome....was someone just at the door?"
*Luke* "Yeah, it was your sister."
Laura walks over to the chair to grab her purse.
*Laura* "What! You're kidding me, right? I have texted her like 10 ten times in the past week. She never responded. I think she is still pretty mad at me."
*Luke* "No, I'm not joking she was just here. She said she wanted to talk to you...."
*Laura* "Okay, so why did she leave?"
*Luke* "Because I told her to."
*Laura* "What! Why...why would you do that?"
*Luke* " I think it's obvious, Babe. [patience wearing thin in his voice]  We need to leave. We are already 20 minutes behind. I don't want to get stuck in afternoon traffic. And then my Mom will be waiting on us. That's why!"
 *Laura* "Okay, I see your point. So what did she say exactly."
*Luke* "That she wanted to talk to you and to give her a call when you get the chance."
*Laura* "That's it?"
*Luke* "Yup. Now let's go before we waste any more time. You can ask me more about it in the car."
She sets her purse back on the table.
 *Laura* "Okay, just give me 2 minutes to fix my hair. [she points to her head] This is not working."
She moves quickly to the stairs before Luke can protest her decision.
*Luke* '' look fine. You can't fix it in the car on the way there? We gotta go."
*Laura* "No. I'll be down in 2 minutes. Besides planes now a days never show up on time anyways...."
*Luke* "Ugh! You're killing me here. You better be ready in 2 minutes. I'm waiting in the car. So make sure you lock up."
*Laura* [her voice fading as she walks up the stairs] "Okay..."
