The conference had come to an end, and Yvonne was to meet her lover at Renaissance Downtown Hotel, Dubai as planned. Michael arrived before Yvonne as her flight was delayed. It was a lovely moment for the lovebirds who hugged each other so passionately and in tears. They talked about life without each other’s company, work challenges, families and other interesting things. That night, after having shower and dinner, the two drank themselves to stupour just to forget about their worries and emotional pains; it wasn’t easy for them living apart. They had a good time together expressing their undying love for each other. Michael promised to get Yvonne out of that unhappy marriage; he told her his plans of eloping with her. Yvonne, who still had so much hatred for her father for forcing her to marry Frank, saw Michael’s plan as perfect and accepted to run away with him as soon as possible. Frank, on the other hand, planned to elope with Habibat.
Seven days after, Yvonne called her husband to break the news of her extending her stay, giving the reason that she fell ill and needed to recover fully before returning. He knew that their marriage was never meant to be, so decided not to force Yvonne to be with him. Michael had earlier informed Yvonne to come along with her travel documents and other necessary documents, so they were very much ready to travel to the US. Michael and Yvonne, a few months before her traditional marriage to Frank, had a court wedding. The idea was initiated by Michael but without revealing every reason for it to Yvonne. Yvonne at the time never questioned it as she had known Michael for six years and understood every step he took. With the help of his uncle, Michael and Yvonne got their visas for one month vacation in the US. Within the period, they applied for Master’s program in the University of Southern California.
The flight from Dubai to America was scheduled for 2 O’clock in the morning. It was a non-stop flight, and in about 15 hours, they landed at John F Kennedy International Airport, there, a coincidence happened.
At the entrance of the airport, stood Frank and Habibat. Yvonne smiled at Frank who smiled back at her. “Now, I’m free and will be happy ever after,” Yvonne thought and smiled. Michael took her hand as they walked towards the grocery shop. They eventually found their way to the University of Southern California where they made enquires about the Master’s program and applied. Frank and Habibat got engaged again to be wedded in the US.
