“I spotted Vicky while on the pitch and fell in love with her at first sight. Getting in contact with her felt impossible since I had no one to connect me to her, but after this moment my heart never remained the same. Memories of her stayed with me for a whole year.”

I immediately approached her and asked whether she was a resident or had visited a relative since it was around Christmas.
