It was Lara’s birthday and Michael has already planned to surprise her and ask her out on this day.

The day has finally come, the birthday party was just between Lara and Michael ,Michael has ordered for the cake and drinks and he has gotten his diamond ring ready to step in to the line of a real man.

Lara too has everything in order, she decorated everywhere like she was expecting a lot of people .
Later in the night Michael arrived at Lara’s house with the cake in his hands, he also checked himself and breath down twice before knocking on the door.
“Hold on am coming” Lara said the moment she heard the door bell

“I knew it was you, Lara said the moment the opened the door and saw Michael.
” birthday girl ! Michael said as he step in and dropped the cake on the table
“wow!!! you bought me a cake? you shouldn’t have gone through all this stress, I’m already happy that you are here with me today,Lara said while checking out the cake.
” look Lara I don’t care if I have to stress myself or go as far to the mountain just for you, I will do it because you are a special woman, Michael said to Lara.

“Awwwnnn, thanks Michael, that’s so sweet of you , Lara said and then paused before she continued and said ” Michael I have something to tell u tonight, Lara said making Michael wonder what could that be.
“I also have something to tell you but first cut your cake and tell me yours before I tell you mine, Michael said
” OK no problem, shall we,Lara said as she took the little knife and put it in the middle of the cake.
“At the mention of Jesus, you will cut it, Michael said
J! E! S! U! S! Jesus, both Lara and Michael screamed as they call the Jesus together and cut the cake.

After the cutting of the cake , Lara and Michael had their meal on the dining and after Lara sat down properly as he called Michael’s name and told him , he wants to tell him something.
” OK am all hears and be fast I also have something important to tell you, Michael said

“when I was child , have always dreamt of meeting my prince charming one day, Then when I grew up and came to Lagos I met someone. He looks so real , he has everything I have dreamt about in my Prince charming. Lara stop to look at Michael if he was listening and he was, Michael eyes were on Lara as she said every words.
Lara continued, ” His name is Larry, he was tall and dark. Larry and I so much love each other like I think but it was all a lie.
After two years of dating Larry , I became pregnant, I told Larry about it and he sounded so happy and he said that in the next few months we are going to get married. All my hopes and joy knew no bound because I thought i have the man of my dream but it was all a lie.
One morning, I woke up having a stomach bite , the pain was so severe that I passed out, when I opened my eyes I was on the hospital bed and there the doctor told me I lost the baby . I don’t know how it happened, the doctor said that it was food poisoning and that moment I remembered Larry had volunteer to make food a night before that day, I was so confused , I really don’t want to believed and then I started trying Larry’s line but it wasn’t reachable . After I was discharge, I went home but Larry was not there, I only met a paper where he said I shouldn’t bother to look for him, that all what we had was just a fling and nothing more, it didn’t end there, I checked my safe where I do keep money , it was all gone, Larry took them. I was devastated, I went through so much before I could get back on my feet, I suffered and struggle to keep my broken soul alive and that’s when I swear never to fall in love again , I declare to hell with love and everything about it. I started living just for myself, I make sure I avoid every man that comes my way, I was so rude and broken, I became a tigress but not until I met you Michael, you changed everything, you made me believed that there is still life and love. whenever I am with you, I feel safe and secured, you are a true friend for anyone and that’s why am not ashamed to say this tonight even if you don’t feel the same for me “I LOVE YOU MICHAEL” ,Lara said both in tears and also smiling.
Michael was just looking at her , he stood up and went straight to her and said “you are really a special woman , Michael said and went straight on his knees making Lara to stand up and wondering what he was about doing.
