The Battle Of Love vs Social Clas-s
To err is human but to forgive is divine. No matter how much a person hurts you, always create room in your heart to forgive them because that’s the right thing to do. When you hold back your forgiveness, you end up hurting yourself and not the person who hurt you. With or without an apology, it always pays off to have a forgiving spirit towards your offenders. The fact that Mrs Duncan had realised her mistakes and dropped her pride to ask a supposed ‘Commoner’ as Olivia for forgiveness is enough to show that she was truly sorry for her past actions. What a relief indeed!
To be honest, no one saw this apology coming because the almighty ‘Mrs Duncan’ wasn’t the type to accept her mistakes, talk more of apologising whether she was wrong or not. It baffled Dennis to see his mum in such manner and position because she had never shown such vulnerability since he was born. It had to take God to intervene in the matter because her actions clearly wasn’t ordinary. Anyways, all we can do is thank God that the situation had turned around for good.
Mrs Duncan was invited inside the h0tel room because she had been outside for a while. Olivia sat beside Dennis on the couch as they settled to listen to what she had to say. After few seconds of silence, Mrs Duncan broke the silence.
“My son and daughter, I have come here today to express my regrets over my actions since the first day I set my eyes on Olivia. I should have been a supportive mum and stand by you when you nee-ded me. I’m so sorry that I forgot my humble beginnings so easily and treated Olivia like there wasn’t a tiny reflection of me in her. The truth is that I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth, neither did your dad. During our youthful days, we worked extremely [email protected] for all we have today. When we finished from the university, we were still clueless about where our lives were going but we never gave up. In the midst of all that [email protected] work, doors began to open one after the other and our lives changed drastically when your dad discovered oil in the piece of land his grand father gave to him as an inheritance. The federal government and your dad went into a [email protected]!pand that’s when our lives changed completely. We made our first Billions in less than six months after the oil was discovered. Your dad and I began to invest in real estates, manufacturing companies, petrol stations, shopping malls and so on. For a second, I forgot that I was once like Olivia. It took the things you said to me that day at the restaurant to open my eyes. I guess I forgot my story for a second and got blinded by the social clas-s segregation of today. My dear Olivia, I am sorry for every pain I have caused you and can’t be more excited to have you in my life as my son’s [email protected] Let’s all bury the hatchet and move onto a better tomorrow. Your dad is losing it because we miss you so much and can’t wait for you to come home. Think about all I have said and lend a forgiving heart to me and your dad. We love you both and can’t wait to fully begin to function as one family again” Mrs Duncan soberly said.
Immediately Dennis mum was done talking, she got up, gave her son a pe-ck on his forehead and left the h0tel room. The security officials she [email protected]£ with esc-rted her to the car and they all left.
With Mrs Duncan gone, the whole room was silent for a while as Dennis and Olivia processed everything that was said to them earlier. It was a lot for them to take in at once so they took as much time as they could to warp their heads around it. They found solace in that brief story Mrs Duncan told them about her past. It was refreshing for Dennis to know that his parents un-derstood what having nothing felt like; which meant they could give another person the benefit of doubt and a chance to write their own success story.
de-ep down, the lovebirds were a bit relieved and happy that the opposition against their relationsh!pwas giving way. At that moment, they could smell victory close by and it made them really happy. Olivia couldn’t believe that a mighty woman such as Dennis’s mum could relate to the struggle of growing up without anything. It made her believe more in herself and effort to become as successful as Dennis someday.
That single confession fuelled Olivia’s drive and pas-sion towards becoming more successful than she currently was. She tripled the efforts she put into her business and the results gradually [email protected]£ evident. A business magazine interviewed her business and the article was everywhere.
Fortunately, Dennis parents come across a copy of the magazine and it left them in awe. They began to respect Olivia as a person and this made them proud and happy that their son chose her. Dennis was so happy and proud of the success of his ‘business driven’ baby girl. Their relationsh!pbegan to compliment each other well enough and no longer looked like a pity case of a rich man helping a poor woman.
Without the help of Dennis, Olivia single handedly turned her family’s life around. They moved from their old slump neighbourhood to a more choiced area in town. Her dad and mum quit their old jobs and [email protected]£ ‘stay at home’ parents. She gave her immediate elder brother a hvge sum of money to put into his business.
When Dennis found out what Olivia did for her family, he was a bit sad that she didn’t ask for his support. She held him ti-ght and k!$$£d his forehead; “Baby, you are the man that has made me whom I am today. You started this business for me and I can’t thank you enough for all you have done but it’s time for me to let you rest because you have tried. I can’t ask you for things I can now comfortably afford on my own. You bought me two cars in the space of 8 months since we met; one for my personal use and one for my business. I know you can give me everything I want but I never want to abuse that privilege. I love you and would never take your kind heart for weakness. I got you forever and all that is mine is yours too. You are my strength and the reason I am whom I am today. I bless God for the day I met you. I would keep working [email protected] to be the woman you will forever be proud of. I want to be an as-set to you and not a liability. Someday, I pray I make you as happy as you have made me” she calmly said.
At that moment, Dennis was wowed. He gave Olivia a soft k!sson herl-ips and said; “I am so proud of you my darling”. She smiled, k!$$£d him back and said “Thank you!”.
Days turned to months and one year pas-sed since Dennis and Olivia met each other. It was their one year anniversary and they wanted to make the [email protected] a special one but coincidentally, Mr & Mrs Duncan was hosting a dinner [email protected] for close family friends and business [email protected] around that same period. The couple were invited and began to prepare to grace the occasion.
At that time, Dennis no longer lived with his parents but now lived alone in one of his dad’s estates. He usually visited his family’s mansion with Olivia mostly on Sundays.
As the day for the [email protected] drew nearer, everyone prepared towards it but Dennis had some skeleton in his cardboard. He was hiding something from everyone and planned on surprising them on that day.
Finally, the D-day was here and Olivia dressed to kill. She looked extremely beautiful when she pu-ll-ed up with Dennis at Mr & Mrs Duncan’s residence. The decoration for the [email protected] was splendid and truly beautiful to behold. The [email protected] began and everyone had fun. Olivia wasn’t too available because she helped out in the kitchen with Mrs Duncan and the caterers.
Halfway into the [email protected], Dennis interrupted everyone with a toast. “Hello everyone, plea-se raise your glas-ses, I have an announcement to make” he said. Everyone was curious to hear what he would say so they raised their glas-ses up. Dennis called for Olivia’s attention and she was summoned from the kitchen. When she arrived, she was confused as to why everyone was holding a glas-s of wine for a toast. Before she could think further, Dennis interrupted her thoughts. “Babe plea-se come here” he calmly said and she walked to where he was standing.
Everyone was quiet as they watched the young love birds. After few seconds, Dennis broke the silence. “Babe, you know how I always told you I can’t imagine my life without you?” he asked and Olivia nervously nodded ‘Yes’. He smiled and knelt down with one knee.
Immediately Dennis knelt down, Olivia began to tear up. He brou-ght out a ring from his pocket and said; “We have been throu-gh a lot to get here and I meant every word I ever told you. You [email protected]£ into my life and taught me lessons about life I could never have learnt in any clas-sroom. You are so pure in heart and I admire your strong will and strength towards life. You inspire me everyday to be a better version of myself because your growth is such a beautiful transformation and I’m so blessed to experience it all. Tonight, I’m taking a bold step in our relationsh!pto ask you to marry me. Olivia Nelson, will you marry me?”.
At that moment, everyone was so excited for the couple and couldn’t hold back their excitement. Olivia was still tearing up as she watched the love of her life ask for her hand in marriage. It felt like a beautiful dream to her that she didn’t want to wake up from.
Without wasting any time, Olivia knelt down too with Dennis and k!$$£d him pas-sionately. She looked into his eyes and happily screamed “Yessss!”.
Destiny can be delayed but can never be denied. It’s relieving to see how positive things turned out for Dennis and Olivia. Their engagement didn’t come as a big surprise to well wishers because it was highly expected. Everyone shared in their happiness by screaming for joy and ma-king a big cheers with their glas-ses filled with wine. Olivia felt like the luckiest woman in the world to be engaged to the only man her heart beats for. It felt like a blessing and she couldn’t hold back the tears of joy that fell off her eyes as she stared at her beautiful diamond ring. What a beautiful day indeed!

The news of Dennis engagement to Olivia soon spre-ad round the whole city. Congratulatory calls and messages began to flood in. Being a wealthy man’s son, the news was carried by different blogs and news media, but despite all the attention the engagement was getting, the newly engaged couple still tried to keep some details and activities about their relationsh!pto themselves. This was a good decision to avoid third [email protected] intrusion in their relationsh!p.
Shortly after the engagement, the wedding preparations began. Olivia didn’t do much because Mrs Duncan took absolute control and wanted to make their wedding the best ever. Despite being the master planner, she still asked Olivia what her wedding expectations were. Mrs Duncan made sure to carry her along so she won’t feel left out. Olivia felt blessed to have such a thoughtful and agile mother inlaw.
As the wedding [email protected]£ grew nearer, Olivia began to fantasize about her wedding night. She day-dreamed of everything that was expected to go down that night and each thought made her blush in anticipation. In order to make that night more special, she bought ‘h0t’ lingerie she would put on that night. At this point, it’s safe to say that it would be a night to remember for the beautiful vir-gin. f!ngerswere crossed as the days drew nearer.
Finally, the highly anticipated wedding between billionaire son ‘Dennis’ and his Beau ‘Olivia’ was here. People from all works of life trooped into the venue to [email protected] the union of the couple. There were plenty food options to choose from; ranging for local to continental dishes. There was enough to eat and drink. The wedding screamed luxury, clas-s and wealth.
Mr & Mrs Nelson still found it extremely difficult to believe that their daughter was getting married into such a wealthy family. It took a while for that reality to sink in. Olivia’s parents were quite emotional each time they remembered where they [email protected]£ from. God was indeed faithful.
Before the wedding reception [email protected]£ to an end, Dennis and Olivia had alre-ady left to their h0tel room. It was indeed a wonderful night to remember as they made love like the world was coming to an end. Dennis felt honored to take his wife’s vir-ginity and just as though that wasn’t enough, she took in that very night. The pregnancy was noticed and confirmed a month after.
The couple were first blessed with a bouncing baby boy and a girl [email protected]£ two years after. Mr & Mrs Duncan were excited for their first ever grand kids from their only son.

End of story!
