The fiction story was about Ashman, a civil engineer by profession with United Engineers Limited in Kuala Lumpur whose first marriage failed as a result of his wife’s infidelity. After the split with his wife, Ashfah, his quest for a worthy successor saw him meeting with Azmah, who was married to an ailing husband. Suddenly, love blossomed between them in a long winding episode with Ashman registering his interest in a “buy-out” clause of her marriage should she become available by default. After the death of her husband, it was a case of “so near yet so far” for them to tie the matrimonial knot because of her father’s strong objection. The saga of their love ended in the untimely death of Azmah in an unlikely place, a nursing home, where she fell on to his arms before her dying breath.
