Their friendship started way back while they were still in high school. For Michael, he knew that Turia was the lady he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, but for Turia, those days, she saw him as just a mutual friend, nothing more. Turia qualified as a mining engineer while Matthew was a policeman. He moved Turia in mines of Western 🇦🇺. Michael can remember the fateful date of September 2, 2011, as if it happened yesterday. On that fateful day, he was away on business when he heard that Turia was involved in an accident and was badly burnt.
Due to Michael’s unwavering positivity and support, it gave Turia another hope of living again amidst the pains and anguish she was encountering. Turia wished him to leave her alone and move on with his life, but Michael was in love, and he couldn’t see any life without Turia.
He believed in her and made her believe in herself. It is only true love that can stand all the above….Michael was in love and not in the lust of the flesh. The flesh had been distorted, reshaped, but the real love was burning in his heart, and he could feel it anytime he looked in her eyes; those eyes which were unaffected by the fire.
The one thing that was on Turia’s mind as the flames engulfed her otherwise beautiful body was that, her boyfriend of many years would take to his heels; never to be seen again. The image of Michael was the last thing that was in her mind as she blacked out.
She confesses that she kept thinking of Michael and the times they had been together even when she was battling to stay unconscious.
Michael has proven beyond reasonable doubt that, he is in love with Turia Pitt. When this beauty was in intensive care unit after the inferno, Michael was always by her side; from 7 am to 7 pm; he had to quit his job just to be by her side.
Michael was sure that his wonderful angel girl would pull through and make it to live again. That is why, even as she lay in the intensive care unit, he bought her an engagement ring. He made a vow during this dark days.. that if she lived, he would marry her! 😍 😍 😍
