To begin with, the two protagonists in our story were casually introduced to one another in a decent manner. At first, there was no element of attraction on the part of the guy.

On the contrary, their inherent and unique attitudes and behaviors were never a problem. In fact, the enigmatic and the unusual coincidental and funny ways of destiny made them to meet again unexpectedly.

However, he had been warned that Grace had a boyfriend at that time. Despite of this situation, Jojo was too persistent about his intentions for the lady who had strict parents.

Meanwhile, on the part of Grace, Jojo caught her heart and swept her feet away during their initial meeting.

But, Grace was too young, assertive and adventurous then. For her, this was a new challenge that can definitely change her life. To carefully handle the situation, she had used the proper “time management techniques” in order to give Paul, who happened to be her boyfriend and Jojo, her current love interest the appropriate attention without any complication.

Their arrangement is something like this, if they were together they are lovers otherwise they are just friends. Without not much to say, Grace had accepted without thinking about its consequences. Conversely, the only condition that Grace had imposed on Jojo was that no one of his girls will come to her territory.
