The discussion started with Rayde and his parents after he tells them about his plan to marry Rannah.

“What? Are you crazy? You will marry that girl you just met?” His father said suddenly.

"Dad, I've been thinking about this thing."

“No! She is not the woman you deserve!

"How did you say, Dad?"

"That woman has been divorced twice!"

“So? What's the point, Dad? Just because she divorced twice she can never be loved? maybe they just didn't see the real value of Rannah so they divorced her!

“You’re blindly in love with that woman son! If you don’t like your American girlfriend anymore then find another girl, there are millions of women in this world!” Said his mother.

“And why would I do that? I already found the one, and that’s Rannah.

“You don’t even mind to know about her past? Why she divorced twice?

“That was her past Mommy, I don’t care about that. By the way, how did you know about that thing?

“We investigate her.


“We only want what is best for you.

“He divorced twice because of—“

“Mom, stop! I don’t wanna hear anything about that! The past is the past! I will not let her recall her past! What matters the most is the present!

“You will not be going to marry that woman!

“Just because she divorced twice everyone will against her? Why are you interfering in this matter? This is my happiness, why can't you just support it? While my brothers and sisters you let them marry someone they loved?

“Because they chose the right person.

“If that so, expect my resignation letter on your desk at the library one of the following days. I'll give you back the position you entrusted me. I'm leaving and going somewhere with Rannah.

“You can’t. I won't let you.

“Why Dad? What will you do? Blacklisting me? Try Dad. I'm going to kill myself!” After those words, he said he left his parents in the living room.

He went straight to his room and dress himself up, then he went out to see Rannah. He wants to discuss something with her.

He doesn't care about Rannah's past. Because for him, it was her girlfriend’s past. Why would he waste time finding out about it? His decision is final. Rannah is the only one she wants to marry and no one can change his mind.

WHILE he is away, his parents talked seriously. They don't like Rannah for him, but they can not afford to lose a son. After their son threatens to commit suicide they are a bit worried because they know he can do that.

Rayde is having fun with Rannah.

"Baby, if I ask you to go with me to another country, will you go with me?"

"Why do you ask that?"

"I do not want to lose you. You are the one I want to spend my whole life with.

"Of course I’ll go, but we have to get married first."

"Let’s get married when we're out of this country."

“What? You have your work here? and Your family?

"I want to be away from here, from them either."

"What is the problem?"

“Nothing baby. All I want to do is stay with you forever. ” He denied.

“Tell me the truth Rayde. What’s going on?

"Nothing ... I'll marry you soon here if you don't want us to get married abroad."


"Yes, no matter what your past is"

“My past? What do you mean?"

"Don't worry Rannah, I don't care about your past."

Rannah secretly liked what Rayde had said because she didn't need to explain and weave a story about her past.

Rannah kissed him on lips because of what he said. She felt a little bit worry upon hearing Rayde telling her about her past, on her mind that he might know about her previous divorce. She did everything just to stop them talking so she could divert Rayde attention into something special as they were in a hotel room.

They never go home, they spend the whole night together in a hotel. They give satisfaction to each other as they make love now and then. Rayde is very happy about what he had with Rannah the whole night. His girlfriend is good at bed, she satisfied his nature call several times.

The next day ...

After spending with Ranah in a hotel the whole night, Rayde went home.

“Where have you been all night?” His father asked.

“I slept at the hotel, with Rannah. ”He replied.

“We were waiting for you to come home last night. We're almost up all night waiting for you.

“I'm here now. I haven't committed suicide. Rannah and I spend and having fun the whole night.

“I don't want to put this family to shame! Because even if you didn't say it, I knew there’s something that happened between the two of you at the hotel. All right, we will gather your engagement soon before she gets pregnant!

“You're right Dad. Something special happened between us at the hotel last night and I enjoyed it. Now you have no reason not to accept Rannah. Marriage or shame? It was part of my plans aside from suicide.

He was secretly pleased with what his father had said. Because he can finally marry Rannah. His plan succeeded. He knew his father was keeping their name from shame. Having sex with his girlfriend is one of his plans to make them agree with him.

Two weeks later ...

Rayde and Ranah's engagement party is currently taking place at a hotel. Rannah's family seems very happy but not Rayde's family.

It's just a simple celebration but still makes Rayde happy. What matters to him is that he is already engaged to Rannah.

“Aren't you happy?” Rayde asked his girlfriend while they were drinking wine.

“Happy of course.

"Why don't you get along with my relatives?"

"I'm shy, I'm fine with my friends and family and you're here too."

“Don't be shy baby. Soon you'll be a part of my family.

"I'm okay here Rayde."

“I'm not going to force you to socialize with them. I'm just worried because they might think something bad about you.

"I don't think so. They seem busy about business things." She said as he looked on the table next to them. Rayde's family talking seriously to their relatives and family friends.

The party ended at two o'clock in the morning.

“Now are you happy?” Rayde father asked when they were in the table.

“Of course Dad. But you are not happy I know.

“You can't blame us. You disrespect our parents because of her. ” Rowan said.

"Life is so unfair."

"You got what you want, your plans succeeded so how life became unfair with you?"

"None of you looks happy, no one of you socialized with Rannah,"

"We don't want to ruin your night, and don't expect any changes," Lanah said.

"Then why are you all here? Why suddenly everyone agrees with my plan?"

“As Daddy said, We also don't want our name to be in shame," said Rawan.

Rayde sigh, then walked out.

Will he be happy forever?
