On a visit to see her grandmother thirty years after leaving Jamaica, Carmel met Byron, whom she was at school with but had forgotten until she met him again at the Square. When she returned to London, dreams she had before going to Jamaica of a strange but simple Rasta man at the Square, made her think their meeting was destined. Byron made her two months in Jamaica exciting and memorable, he managed a reggae artist, and took her out to stage shows. But her family disapproved of their friendship and she doubted that he loved her and was waiting for her return to be with him as promised. She wanted to keep the dream of returning alive, but her mother threatened to cut her off if she didn't end her friendship with him. He was w more than a dream he was the man she returned to Jamaica to meet.
