Clara couldn’t believe the rumor that was spreading around concerning her trying to ruin jide’s relationship. Someone that has being like the brother she had lost and had really helped her through difficult times. This really brought back her life in the past which she was trying so hard to let go and move on. She tried calling Annabel to explain to her that all these were just act of jealousy from those spreading the rumor, as they were surprised at their sudden closeness and she no longer had time much for them, but she refused to pick her calls. Clara got tired, she refused to see jide and her aunt was really worried seeing her miserable. This is a girl that has gone through too much for the past two and half years. She needs breakthrough and she deserved to be happy. Her aunt decided to intervene without Clara’s knowledge.
A week later,
One sunny afternoon Annabel, jide and her aunt were in search for Clara has they couldn’t find her anywhere in the house and she hasn’t being in the store either. The thought of her losing her scholarship due to her situation really worsen the case for her that she spent most of the time on her mother’s grave. Her cell wasn’t reachable, as they have tried severally to reach her. Annabel blamed her impatient act and her hot tempered for causing Clara this much pains that she started crying uncontrollably. Jide suggested they visit her mother’s grave as that would be the only resort for her.
They couldn’t believe their eyes as they saw Clara looking tired as she slept under the sun on her mother’s grave possibly tired of crying to her mum’s spirit. When she opened her eyes, she was surprised to see Annabel.
On getting home, before she could open her mouth to speak, Annabel was on her kneels crying and pleading for her forgiveness. Clara was surprised but Annabel explained how her aunt intervened and explained all to her.
Few days later everything was back to normal. Clara, jide and Annabel were all preparing to travel out of the country. Clara visited her mum, dad and brother’s grave for the last time to bid them farewell before leaving and promised to make them proud. She hugged her aunt so tight and bid her goodbye.
Twenty of them who participated for the scholarship that passed were taken to Harvard University to study the course of their choice which was sponsored by a family that owns THE FALCON GROUP OF COMPANY. Four years later they were about to graduate, the falcon’s family organized a get together in house party themed ‘meet the falcon’s’.
Clara on the other side was loved by all not only because of her good character only but also she’s a beautiful lady, who is extremely brilliant. Mr. Falcon’s first son Antonio and his closest cousin Jared also went to Harvard wit Clara but never had any encounter to speak to each other.
Jared was a very lively person and loved by everyone but Clara was more interested in Antonio. He was more reserved, he doesn’t talk much but his smile was everything. They met first at jide and Annabel’s engagement party. Antonio was a friend of Annabel, they were introduced to each other, his firmed handshake sent blood rushing through Clara’s spine has she became weak in the knee. There she knew she had fall for him but Antonio was scared to approach her as all relationships in the past didn’t work out due to their interest in his father’s wealth.
Few months later it was graduation time, Annabel surprised Clara by inviting her aunt to her graduation party. She was very happy to see her aunt, they gisted so much and catch up on so many girls gossips like Antonio Falcon. Celebration was over, it was exactly six months after graduation, Clara got a good job which comes with a lot of benefits and she was able to make her aunt stay permanent.
One morning as she was observing her morning workout routine with her aunt, she met Antonio and Jared. Jared quickly hugged her and engaged her aunt in some flirty young man discussion just to give those two lovebirds time to realize they need to be together.
Clara and Antonio could hear her aunt’s laughter from distance as she walked with Jared. Antonio smiled and tried to introduce himself while Clara gave him a very seductive smile. They talked from that day on and it has being a match make from heaven.
There she knew it was her parent that has sent Antonio to her as he was everything in one to her, a father, mother, brother, friend and now her husband.
