Lauren was on her feet in her office, operating the portable scanning machine when she felt someone wrap a pair of arms around her waist possessively. She smiled, knowing who it was.

Stanley chuckled and kissed her cheek from behind.

She released herself from him, turned around, tiptoed and gave him a kiss on his lips.

"Going somewhere?" She asked with an eyebrow raised.

"Yes, my parents requested to see me so I have to go to the mansion."

"Is everything okay?" She asked concerned.

"Rita is being reluctant about signing the divorce papers and so she has notified my parents about the whole thing."

"Heyyy, there's nothing to worry about" Stanley assured as soon as he noticed the sad expression on Lauren's face.

"I'll go and see my parents and hear what they have to say to me. I'm sure Rita said something to them that is not true."

"Don't stress yourself. My lawyer will come up with something. If Rita doesn't sign the divorce papers willingly, she will have to do it forcefully. She cannot go seeking justice when are hands are not clean either."

"You'll be coming back to the office right?" She asked.

"I still have some work to finish up so yes I'll be coming back to the office. Hopefully, my parents won't keep me there for so long."

"Okay, Drive safe."

"Sure, I'll be back soon." He kissed her cheek and left for his parents' mansion.

....................

"It's so good to see you again, Son, " Gemma said before pulling Stanley into a bone-crushing hug.

Stanley chuckled and hugged her back. "It's good to see you too, Gemma."

Gemma used to be Anita and Stanley's nanny when they were young. Over the years, she has built a very tight relationship with the Chatwins' and still work for Stanley's parents as the housekeeper of their very big mansion.

Gemma is just in her mid-forties, very active and hardworking.

"I hope you've been doing well." He asked as he pulled away from the hug.

"Oh please, don't pretend like you care. You hardly come by so say Hi to us. You only show up on special occasions." She accused with a pout.

Stanley smiled, "I'm sorry, I've been occupied with work that's why." He justified.

Gemma rolled her eyes, "You say that all the time and promise to change but you don't keep your promise." She accused.

Stanley smiled shyly.

"Anyways it's nice to see you. You parents are expecting you, you should go see them."

"Where are they? In the study room?"

"Your father is in the study room but your mom should be in the bedroom." She answered.

"Thanks, Gemma, I'll say Hi to you before I leave." Stan hugged Gemma once more before making his way to his parents' room.

He knocked on the door twice and entered when his mother gave him permission to.

Brenda was settled on the sofa that was at the far end of she and her husband's room with her laptop on her lap, probably doing some work or research.

"Hi, Mom." Stanley greeted as he strolled in. He gave his mom a kiss on her cheek before taking a seat beside her.

Instead of replying to his greetings, Brenda gave her son a strange look.

"Mom, why are you staring at me like that?" Stan asked with a smile playing on his lips.

Brenda kept her laptop aside and turned her full concentration to her son.

"I'm surprised because I was expecting a certain reaction from you."

"What reaction?" Stanley asked with an eyebrow raised.

"Rita was here this morning, crying her eyes out because you served h

e guests with so much adoration in her eyes."

"Anita caught me staring at her and she started to get angry. Before she misinterpreted the whole thing and thinks I'm cheating your mom, I explained to her what I was observing and she saw it with her own eyes."

"I didn't even know you loved her but I got to know that you appreciate and care for her as your personal assistant because she's a good girl and she works hard."

"But I was hopeful and I knew that whatever will be will be. Two people that are destined for each other will end up together no matter how big the obstacle may be." Kelvin completed.

"Is she really pregnant?" Brenda asked hopefully. Stanley could see the eagerness and excitement in his mom's eyes, he could tell she was hoping his answer would be yes.

He smiled. "No Mom."

"Lauren and I haven't gone past passionate kisses and a little smooching. She officially agreed to give me a chance just a few days ago."

"But don't feel disappointed, it will eventually happen by God's grace. I want nothing more than to make her my wife and the mother of my children. Lauren completes me and She's the one I want to spend the rest of my life with."

Brenda smiled proudly, she was looking at the version of Stanley she has never seen before. She could see the love and sincerity in his eyes as he spoke about Lauren. Something that wasn't present when he told them of his intention to marry Rita.

"I can't wait to meet, Lauren, " Brenda announced excitedly.

Stanley and Kelvin gave her a weird look.

"I know I've met her before but that was as your personal assistant. This time, it's going to be different because I'll be meeting her as the woman who my son cannot imagine spending the rest of his life without." She said proudly.

Stanley blushed.

"Thanks, Mom, thanks, Dad. Your support means so much to Lauren and I. Especially to Lauren because she's been insecure about everything that has been going on."

"It took awhile for her to accept me and what I feel for her because she doesn't want to be the reason for me and Rita's separation."

"And I'm sure your approval will mean so much to her."

"You can bring her for dinner next weekend" Kelvin suggested.

"Yes, I'll get to show her your baby pictures, " Brenda said excitedly.

"Mom!!!" Stan groaned.
