“ I am so sorry. I will do anything you want”. Lilian apologized to Larry.
Earlier in the day, Lilian had tried to talk to Larry on Facebook but she could not get through to him.
She sent Larry so much text but her chat was just filled with her own message. Lilian decided to post a Message on Larry’s timeline, hoping that it could reach him.
Larry had asked Lilian to post her nude pictures on Facebook to prove her love for him. This request shocked Lilian and while in rage, she refused to grant such a request.
But when Larry did not speak to her for two weeks, Lilian began to worry and soon panicked.
She had a rethink of her decision and was ready to do anything for Larry if he could just speak to her just once.
