The storm is getting nastier , Lovella pleaded to his parents not to go but they insist on going on with their plan she was afraid for she was alone with her dog.
Out in the coldness of the night the couple huddled together to set foot on their journey.. As they pass on the devils track where the roads is winding and very slippery.The car lost its control they can’t see the road ahead through thick fog fierce pouring rain they cannot see what’s in front of them the road is hidden from visible eyes. The car swerve on the right side falling down to the cliff 200 meters below.
Their parents time of death was also the time the child came out to greet the world. Lovella’s grief was so immense she cried bitter tears she laments for her terrible loss and her neighbors are mourning with her they are very sorry for her.
She lived alone in their ancestral home she can’t leave their house where memories with her parents are very precious to her . Since then, she have change the lovely charming and generous woman they see is lonely and detached from everyone now. Gone was the smile that she readily ive to everyone she met. She often went to their cottage by the woods with her dog on her side her constant companion.
She walked along a narrow path to the forest where she love to go where berries are growing abundantly. she gather as many as she could to make jams and sell it back to the city as one of her source of living. This part of the woods are their property so she’s could roam around as long as she need to.
She came to her sacred place where she love to stay the most this is her hidden paradise. The spring is hidden by tall trees and plants around it on a first glance you can actually compare it to a paradise. She loved this particular part of the forest the virginal beauty never stop to amaze her, for a while it makes her forget her longings .Wanting to take a dip looking at the sky it’s perfect for a nice bath. The water is very refreshing to her tired bones and muscles. She heard the cracklings of the leaves then, she saw him, a handsome man and her gut wrenches at the sight of him seeing his back under an old oak tree . She wondered who he is , she want to go near him and reprimand him that he is stepping on her property . But fear set in her heart looking back at his direction he was gone she wondered who he was is he a being out of this world?
Since that day the image of the man never left at the back of her mind , he remains a mystery to her until one day.
Her application is accepted . She’s going to work as a teacher in a nearby school in her small village where people who lives there are distant relatives. Preparing for her first day she was very excited for landing a job teaching as kindergarten teacher , she loves children.
Starting on her first class there she meet him a father of one of her students. She felt her heart sag at the sight of him obviously married but she felt her fast heartbeat that caught up with her breath. Then, he smile at her but she give him a nod don’t want him to notice that he distract and confuse her own little world.
Disappointed , telling herself someday she gonna find the man of her dreams not with a married man but she learned that he is a widower . He goes up to the woods to vent his emotions through the death of his beloved wife.
Hopes rise within her ….
