“Patience is the precursor to love. Foolishness is the virtue of commitment.” Ash’s words reverberated in his ears. It was a year since she had relocated.

He was a soul searcher; a back-packer in pursuit of a purpose. He was twenty minutes away from springing a surprise on her.

Love was at a crossroad.
