The morning after I ‘met’ Dre’s mom and sister over skype, my mother told me.
“You know, last night I couldn’t get to sleep until you did.”
“Awh, Why? Was I being noisy? I’m sorry.” I said
“You were;” she responded “You wouldn’t stop singing.”
“I was?” I asked a bit surprised.
“Yup. You must have been very happy.” she told me with a smile.
Meeting Dre’s mother over skype is something that has brought me that much closer to the possibility of moving there, of meeting him. No matter how tightly I seal my lips, my heart is singing right now.
