Tom vent to open the door, Ella stayed in the background, she felt a bit shy, he hugged his mother and kissed her on the cheek and the his sister to.
"Mom this is the love of my life Ella, darling this is my mother". His mother was a friendly lokking middle-aged woman with short grey hair.
"A pleasure meeting you Mrs Hiddleston". Ella said smiling shyly extending her hand.
His mother smiled warmly and grabbed her hand. "The pleasure is all mine and please call me Diana dearest".
"And this is my baby sister Emma, Emma say nicely and civilised hi to Ella". Tom presented his sister, she looked alot like him, just more feminine and with long hair a tad lighter than Toms.
Emma made a face at her brother and pulled Ella into a hug. "I am always civilised, and I am so happy to meat the woman who managed to make this one settle down".
"So happy to meet you to". Ella said, she really liked Emma and was sure they would get along great.
"I ho tis kay h yu that we are eating in the kitchen, it is just pasta bolognaise, I didn't have much to do with on such a short notice". Tom said apologetic.
His mother put her hand on his arm. "It is more than okay sweetie, we came to see you two, the rest is much less important".
They walked out tomthe kitchen and Tom asked them to sit down, he put the food on the table and opened a bottle of good red wine. "Here you go, just dig in".
"Well Tom, how did you two meet ? You kind of haven't told us shit you twat". His sister shided.
Tom just smiled and looked at Ella. "We actually met when I was in Sudan, Ella was our guide, she had been there for 4 years".
"Have you had a girlfriend for that long, without telling us ?" His sister looked at him insulted.
Tom rolled his eyes and sighted. "Emma, not that it is any of your business, but I had to go back home and Ella was staying in Sudan indefinitely, but while I was trying to find an excuse to go back there, she shoved up here in London".
Ella looked at him in surprice, he had never told her that he was planning on goig back to Sudan for her sake, and the thought made her stomach do backflips of pure joy.
"Yeah luckily my aunts company handles the cleaning of Toms hause, and I stepped in due to alot of people of sick, not knowing it was his house". Ella said smiling lovingly at Tom.
His sister clapped her hands. "Oh that is so romantic, that has to be like total kissmet, Gods plan, karma or whatever, you were meant to be together".
"See that might have been what I should have said back then, cause it has taken me quite some time and work to convince her we should be more than friends". Tom said, catching Ellas hand, entwining his fingers with hers.
His mother smiled and said softly. "A smart girl, and then Tom, at least you know for sure that it isn't you fame she wants".
"I already knew, because she didn't know who I was at all when we first met, and the fame thing was her biggest argument for staying just friends". Tom said.
His mother looked at her, smiling friendly and understanding. "I really do understand you, It is not always a friendly world to be a part of, as I can understand you have already experienced yourself".
Ella looked nervously at Tom, but Emma interrupted. "Don't worry Ella, we trust Toms judgment, so if he say your past is your past and doesn't matter, we feel the same".
Ella breathed easily know and said. "I am just so grateful to have truly put it behind me, letting me have a second chance at life".
