Oliver decided that the next woman he selected would be more independent than Lorna. No one could be allowed to get between him and his woman. No one should be able to influence her or in anyway supersede him.
He marched around campus searching for a woman. After two weeks he found a girl, totally different than Lorna. Maria was American born.
As he needed to prove to Lorna he was so over her, he raced into Maria’s life, dazzling her with his beauty and kindness.
The Nineteen year old Oliver was even more beautiful than the Sixteen year old one and he had Maria in love with him within a week, and their relationship went into high gear.
But Maria was so confident, so believing in his complete devotion, he decided to take her down a peg.
