Some weeks later, Frank was finally laid to rest, but he was still appearing to Cynthia in the dream.
Cynthia was getting used to the reality that he was dead and gone forever but Frank never saw it that way.
He still believed that Cynthia was still his and no one else’s.

As the girl of his best friend, he vowed to always stood by her but little did they knew that that closeness will create another unexpected atmosphere for them.
It all began after 3 months Frank died. Okezie found himself falling heads over hills in love with Cynthia.
Cynthia was feeling the same way too, but the thought that he was her late boyfriend’s friend prevented her from exercising the feelings. But Okezie been the man he was decided to break out of the shell.
“Cynthia, I can’t hide this anymore. My original intention was to protect you from breaking down, but that sincerity has made me realised what a sweet and kind girl you are.

I’m not saying that I will make you happy like he did, but I will try my best in my own way. Just give me a chance to make you happy in my own way, Cynthia.”

But she promised him that he will think about it.
