As time went one, Edward went back to the UK but maintained the communication. Becky says, she loved the way thing how the communication went by. She herself telling him all about her and slowly fell in love with him.
I told him about my love after one year of flirting
It took Becky one good year to express her feelings for Edward. Becky adds that she was shocked Edward had fallen in love with her the very first time he came to withdraw money. They got happy of their matching feelings.
Edward was then forced to fly back in the country to cement their love. When touched on the airport, Becky had booked a hotel room at Serena where the two spent one full week without moving outside. By the time they moved out, they had agreed to be man and wife.
