Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 8

If believing in Love is a crime, then I will gladly take the lead to my

cell room and if Loving is wrong, then I never want to be right. What an

amazing feeling it is to believe in something as beautiful and uplifting as

Love. God’s timing is the best when it comes to finding your soulmate and

it’s safe to say that George and Sandra were meant to be.

The proposal of a lifetime took place in George’s bedroom on the very day

Sandra dreaded all her life. A day that began with uncertainties of what

the future held for her marital life, happened to be the day her ‘Beau’ put

a ring on it.

There were diverse emotions in the air that morning because everything

still felt like a dream to Sandra. She found herself crying, smiling and

laughing at the same time after George popped the question. George was all

smiles as he calmly stared at his future wife to-be, waiting for her to

accpet his proposal. On seeing that she couldn’t stop crying, he drew

closer to her and knelt down where she was kneeling too.

“Babe you are leaving me hanging, I need to hear my ‘Yes’ because I’m dying

to kiss you right now” George calmly said and before he knew it, Sandra

planted a soft kiss on his lips and whispered into his ears “Yes, Yes,

Yes.. I love you so so much”. Immediately she officially accepted the

proposal, he smiled and held her waist tightly. They kissed passionately

afterwards and didn’t want to let go of their grip on one another. It was

such a beautiful and everlasting memory that would always linger in their


Finally, Sandra was now officially taken off the market. Words would fail

me to fully explain the joy that overtook Sandra’s heart at that moment. It

felt as if her whole life just began that day. No matter how many proposal

videos you watch or how many proposals you might have been a witness to,

you will never truly understand that feeling until you are the one

proposing or being proposed to. Everything felt magical and that birthday

turned out to be the best birthday ever in Sandra’s life.

After the birthday celebration, the couple officially broke their

engagement news to their families and friends over the phone. Everyone

couldn’t contain their joy as they shared in the couple’s joy. Sandra kept

flashing her ring to anyone that gave her audience. They all laughed and

blushed at the newly engaged lady.

Days passed and the wedding preparation began. Despite the date being

months ahead, the couple took no chance in making preparation towards their

big day. Sandra began to get her bridal train and wedding dress together,

same with George. They began preparing early so as not to rush or miss


Everyone was super excited and couldn’t wait for the days to drew nearer to

the D-day. While there was rejoicing in one camp, I can’t say same for

Dominic’s camp.

It turns out that Dominic heard about Sandra’s proposal on social media and

had been feeling uneasy ever since. It’s been months since Sandra clearly

put him in his place by telling him that she was in a serious relationship

with someone else. Despite getting the message clearly, he somehow felt

they would break up along the way so he could have another shot with her.

But unfortunately, Sandra and her Beau were now officially engaged and were

headed to the alter.

As the days went by and the wedding drew near, Dominic figured it was best

he acted fast or else it would be too late for him to ever have Sandra to

himself again. He thought of what to do but no idea was forth coming for

weeks. After about a month later of being clueless on what to do, the

desperate man decided to take the bull by the horn and approach George face

to face.

Due to Sandra’s constant tags on George’s social media accounts, Dominic

was able to know his identity and where he worked. After gathering enough

details, the desperate man stricked one fateful afternoon.

It happened one busy afternoon at work that George received a notice from

his secretary, saying someone wanted to see him. When George asked for the

person’s identity, the secretary revealed the name ‘Dominic’. Without

knowing anyone that bears that name, he asked the secretary to let the

person in.

While George waited for the unknown visitor, his mind went down memory lane

to the day Sandra revealed a certain ‘Dominic’ to him. He doubted if it was

the same person from his fiance’s past but maintained his cool as he waited

for the person to walk into his office.

Few minutes later, an equally handsome gentleman walked into George’s

office. “Hello, nice meeting you George'” the stranger said, “Nice meeting

you too, my secretary says you are Dominic, right?” George inquired just to

be very sure and the gentleman nodded ‘Yes’ and took his seat.

There was silence for few seconds as both of them looked confused on what

to do next. George was the first to break the silence after he figured

Dominic was holding back his speech.

“Please how can I help you?” George asked and Dominic smiled faintly. He

looked at George for few seconds before finally breaking his silence. “You

have something that belongs to me and I want it back” he bluntly said.

Immediately, George figured whom Dominic truly was. He sat up properly and

prepared for whatever was about to go down. Suddenly, the atmosphere became

tensed as two men that were in love with one woman were about to confront

themselves. There was fire on the mountain but no one was running yet.

When Dominic was done making that funny statement, George smiled faintly

and shook his head. “Now I know whom you are. You are my fiance’s friend,

aren’t you?” He said but Dominic wasn’t there for jokes. “George or

whatever you call yourself, I am here to tell you to back off from Sandra;

she is mine and has always been mine. I don’t bloody care if you put a ring

on her finger, I would replace it immediately you exit our lives. Do you

get it?” Dominic angrily said.

At that moment, George lost his cool because it’s apparent that Dominic had

crossed the line. “I would let everything you just said slide because I

don’t expect much from a guy that let a beautiful and precious jewel like

Sandra slip through his fingers. Now listen, if you think I am moved by

these your empty words, then you must have another think coming and if you

also think that I will leave Sandra for a loser like you, then you must be

crazy. You should be wearing glasses because it’s apparent your eyes are in

bad condition. If your eyes were perfectly fine, then you would have seen

the gold in her when you both were still friends, but it’s clear you

couldn’t see well enough. I forgive you for barging into my office

unannounced but I won’t be too nice if I still see you here in the next two

minutes. Get lost because I am never letting go of Sandra’s hand. Make sure

to shut the door behind you. Nonsense!” George furiously said.

With the look of things, it’s safe to say that ‘world war 3’ was about to

go down that very afternoon because Dominic was not ready to step an inch

outside that office until George comply to his demands.

Just as things were about to get messy, the door opened and it was no other

person than Sandra.

Immediately she entered inside with a food hamper that

contained her fiance’s lunch, her eyes jammed with Dominic’s eyes and her

heart dropped.

Out of shock, the hamper fell off Sandra’s hand and scattered on the floor.

She held her chest and curiously said; “What in the world is going on
