When Miles (peter se­phuma) re­ceived news on Mon­day 28 July that he was dy­ing, he tried his best to re­main pos­i­tive. But af­ter a bleak sec­ond di­ag­no­sis on Mon­day 4 Au­gust, it’s ap­par­ent that his time is up – and who bet­ter to spend his last few mo­ments with than his beloved vic­to­ria (Molobane Mbatha)?

TIME’S RUN­NING OUT

When Miles and vic­to­ria hooked up on New Year’s eve last year, a moun­tain of tension dis­solved and it was the be­gin­ning of a blos­som­ing ro­mance. Af­ter work­ing in the vilakazi house­hold dur­ing Miles and Lu­cilla’s (KB Mot­si­lanyane) mar­riage, vic­to­ria re­mained in their home af­ter the split. Lu­cilla wasn’t too pleased that the help was tak­ing her place, but eight months down the line, it seems as if Miles is over exes like Lu­cilla and sunay (Kelly Khu­malo) and his im­pend­ing death puts things into per­spec­tive.

“since his split from Lu in 2012, Miles hasn’t hur­ried into mar­riage again. But when he’s told that he’s dy­ing, he de­cides to make a com­mit­ment to the woman who’s piv­otal in his life,” peter ex­plains.

MED­I­CAL MAT­TERS

so on Thurs­day 7 Au­gust, Miles is ready to make it of­fi­cial and pops the ques­tion to an as­ton­ished vic­to­ria. “Miles re­alises that vic­to­ria isn’t a fly-by-night girl like Lu­cilla; they’ve es­tab­lished a foun­da­tion for a good re­la­tion­ship. Be­fore Miles’s health di­ag­no­sis, they were just dat­ing and it was noth­ing se­ri­ous. The fact that he’s dy­ing so­lid­i­fies their re­la­tion­ship,” says peter, adding that vic­to­ria “isn’t just an­other wife he has to go through”.

It also mat­ters that vic­to­ria’s the only one who knows about Miles’s con­di­tion, so when she finds out on Mon­day 11 Au­gust that he lied to her about his sec­ond di­ag­no­sis (he told her that he’s fine – naughty boy!), vic­to­ria’s less than im­pressed… es­pe­cially be­cause she was ini­tially re­luc­tant to ac­cept his pro­posal.

HAP­PILY NEVER AF­TER?

peter says that his char­ac­ter “is in love with vic­to­ria and knows that she’ll leave him if he con­tin­ues to keep the truth from those who love him most”. Af­ter all, it’s vic­to­ria’s per­sis­tence that got Miles to tell her ini­tially. But how long be­fore she re­alises that mar­ry­ing a dy­ing man isn’t what she signed up for?

Vic­to­ria’s shocked when Miles pro­poses.
