All effort to reach her or her immediate siblings were to no avail then after five hours of confusion, her father arrived at the church and this was what he came to say...
- I would have done this over the phone but as a man, i felt compelled to come here and do this man to man with you Asomugha, Rachel doesn't want to marry you and i cannot force her, i tried to persuade her but this morning, i woke up and saw the note she left for me and when i searched for her, i was informed that she left the house very early in the morning, she claimed that you are not educated and is not the type of man she wants to spend the rest of her life with. I am sorry about this and beg you to find a place in your heart to forgive her.
Asomugha collapsed and was rushed to the hospital where he remained in coma for two months. Luckily, he survived but he bounced back incomplete and Doctor said that he is suffering from nervous breakdown.
