'I Love A Mama's Boy': Laila refuses to eat birthday cake bought by Emily, says 'you're going to poison me'
Shekeb has been dating Emily for three years and recently confessed that he is in love with her. While the two have been looking forward to spending their life together, one problem they still face is seeking blessings from Shekeb's mother, Laila. Emily has been vocal about trying hard to please Laila, but nothing seems to flatter her. In the latest episode (November 8), Shekeb decided to seek Emily's help to surprise his mother on her birthday. Shekeb has been trying hard to bring the two women in his life closer. However, Laila doesn't seem interested in extending an olive branch. In another bid to turn things around, he takes Emily out shopping and asks her to buy a present for his mother.
Even though Emily had her views about Laila's attitude, she decided to let things go as she was in love with Shekeb. She ended up picking a nice gift for Laila while placing an order for a birthday cake. Shekeb decided to invite Emily home for the surprise even though Laila had made it clear she does not want her there. Shekeb decided to take a risk and it turned out against him as Laila was not happy to have Emily in the house. She questioned Emily's presence while being vocal about her dislike towards the gift she received. At the same time, Laila decided to not eat the cake after finding out Emily was the one who had bought it.
"You're going to poison me," Laila told Emily while asking her to leave the house. Seeing his mother behave in this way, Shekeb was left shocked. He tried to make her understand how Emily was trying to be nice to her. Unfortunately, Laila was not in a mood to listen. Shekeb decided to leave the house with Emily while Laila remained adamant about not having Emily around her.
This is not the first time Laila has spoken about her dislike towards Emily. She has been hard on their relationship as she believes Emily is not a good girlfriend. Their religious and cultural differences also played a crucial role in Laila's hatred towards Emily. After seeing Shekeb walking away with Emily, will Laila give her a chance?
