In the world of love, some journeys stretch across the horizon, while others are destined to be fleeting sparks in the vast expanse of time. Eva's story, a tale of romance and heartbreak, unfolds like a gripping novel, with unexpected twists and turns.

It all began in the bustling city of Abuja, Nigeria, where Eva, a charming young woman from the South, embarked on her quest for a white-collar job. Little did she know that this journey would lead her to a captivating love life. Love, a beautiful thing.

"Hi, are you here for the interview?" she asked, her voice tinged with shyness as she averted her gaze from the enigmatic Floid. His charming smile lit up the room as he replied, "Yes, I am." In that moment, a wave of excitement washed over Eva's face, a joyous expression that whispered, "I'm not alone; I have someone to share this tense wait with."

"Are you Nigerian?" Floid teased, his eyes twinkling with mischief. "You look more Indian than Nigerian." Eva laughed and replied, "Yes, I am, from Bayelsa, the rich oil state." Laughter filled the air, and for a moment, they forgot why they were at Chelsea Hotel in Abuja.

As they chatted, a fair and elegant beauty with a voice like a chorister in perfect harmony interrupted. "Hi Eva, do you have your CV?" Eva replied affirmatively and was asked to follow her. Left alone with feelings of loneliness and confusion, Floid was greeted by a young man who asked if he was also there for an interview. His question reawakened the nostalgia of facing an interview panel.

Thirty minutes later, Eva emerged, walked to the door, and disappeared like a wisp of smoke. Floid was left in a sea of disappointment, his thoughts racing with a million questions. "She didn't even say goodbye, not even a wave of the hand. How do I ever see her again? What happened in her interview?" He wondered, lost in his thoughts.

Then, the door opened, and the familiar face reappeared. It was his turn, and with newfound courage, he ventured forth. He wanted to confront who made Eva sad. Little did he know that this boldness would be his ticket to success.

Days passed, and an email from the Human Resources department arrived, congratulating Floid on his success and asking him to undergo a medical examination at their preferred hospital. He couldn't help but think of Eva, hoping she had also succeeded.

At the hospital, Floid scanned the reception area, hoping to spot Eva's friendly face. However, all he saw were unfamiliar, stern faces. "Was being dark and thick-skinned a requirement for working here?" he mumbled, his disappointment was palpable.

But just as he was about to give up hope, fate intervened. Floid heard a voice that sent shivers down his spine. He turned, and there, emerging from the same hospital, was Eva. Their reunion was nothing short of miraculous, a twist of destiny that left them both stunned.

As Floid and Eva embarked on their careers, their friendship blossomed into something deeper. They were inseparable, and love bloomed in their hearts. But then, a colossal obstacle stood in their way – the office policy. Staff members were not allowed to marry each other, and their love was deemed forbidden.

Heartbroken, they had no choice but to part ways. Floid eventually found new love and married, while Eva became engaged to her heartthrob. Their paths diverged, but the memory of their love story would forever be etched in their hearts.

In the realm of romance, love stories are written in the stars, and Eva and Floid's tale, though marred by an unhappy ending, is a reminder that love, in all its beauty and complexity, is a journey worth taking, regardless of the destination.
