I really need to do something about this, Marilia can’t take him away from me, she can’t
I hope Francis father likes me, I can’t afford to loose him. I took my bath and put on my favorite dress, a pink short dress.
With a white snickers, I arranged my hair and walk out of the house. I guess am good to go.
Wow, you look so beautiful ” Francis said

He opened the car for me and I got inside, different thoughts going on in my mind as he was driving to his house.
