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? Really...you 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 s..so  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!!!
