Cassandra is a young, ambitious and loving woman who tries to see the best in every one in her life, to almost catastrophic faults. A romantic at heart, Cassandra felt alone and bitter until meeting Michael in high school, and since then has had an up and down relationship that has seen almost as much heartbreak as happiness. She however can not help following her heart and desires and goes head in when Michael proposes marriage as a desperate last resort. But when she discovers his latest bought of infidelity, Cassandra has to decide if Michael is worth standing up for anymore, and if she herself is worth fighting for.
Michael is a young but massively successful manager at one of the top merchandising brand stores in the country. Used to getting what he wants and more emotional and needy than he likes to appear, Michael looks at Cassandra with much love but less conviction, as any little thing that she can do or say could push him away to someone else. But he is addicted to her love and ambition and always comes running back to her each and every time. But no matter how afraid he is of coming home one night and not seeing her there, and no matter how afraid he is of losing her forever, his compulsion and desire to get what he wants now and forever may ultimate lead to the downfall of this pairing.
