Ethan could only nod, knowing his regret. he moved to catch the door handle, but when Camilla moved close, he hesitated in opening it. Camilla looked in question at the door and then at the man standing before him looking like a god. She could not look away from his luminous eyes that seemed to suck her in. Ethan's eyes were filled with yearning and Camilla could not move-not even when his fingers dropped from the knob and he reached with both hands to cup her face. No words were spoken. Ethan cradled her cheeks like she was a rare and delicate gift and looked into her eyes- so huge and lovely that he could not say anything. her lips parted, but she was not capable of any speech. the movement captured Ethan's attention and he looked downwards, then lowered his head.

 PROLOGUEIt was early July in the year 2014. It was the beginning of summer when the plants were in full bloom and flowering, the trees green and lush. It was also that time of the year when the beaches and streets were overcrowded with tourists, the majority of them dressed in scanty clothes hoping to beat the heat. Camilla could never understand why anyone would feel the need to roast their skin in the name of sunbathing. The thought alone made her cringe. As she walked through the crowded streets avoiding as much as possible from bumping into the overzealous tourists, she made her way towards the two-storey stone building that was as ancient as time and where she lived since she started work as a government interpr

It took Ethan over 20 minutes to arrive at Camilla's home. It was all shabby: the building, the parking lot- in fact, the entire street. It looked to him as if the entire apartment building itself had not been painted for years. The windows, if they depicted the interior of this place, showed a lack of care as well, since many sported no drapes. The curtains Ethan did see were torn and stained.Camilla had been waiting for him beside the grocery store on the down floor of her apartment building. When she saw him she hesitated, unable to decide whether to walk towards him or wait till he noticed her. Luckily for her, he noticed her almost immediately and signaled her to come to meet him. "Get into the car." He did not bother opening her door for her. "This place is a dump." Read more

 On the first ring, her mother answered and it took all of Camilla's willpower not to start crying even though tears filled her eyes. "Hello, mother.""Oh, my darling, how are you well?" The voice was breathless with worry."I am fine, mama. I wanted to hear your voice and also to tell you that I…that I wedded today.""Yes, I remembered. I believe it all went well.""Yes, it did.""Are you happy?" Camilla was not expecting the question and for an instant, she did not know what to say.
