Candles Online

An eighteen years old girl – cluelessly, hopelessly romantic, believed in celluloid romance. She met a guy through a common friend. Thanks to the well-knit colonies everyone knows everyone through someone. And when she introduced the girl to boy, the girl found him to be perfect – handsome, witty, well mannered – in short, a character right out of her favourite romantic novel and movies.

  1. Great post!
    Yah, she was played as so many of us are at some point in our lives. But the first thought that came to my mind is: what if it had been she who had played him? I wonder if he would have had the same strength of character to sit there and smile? The man should have been up front, but he wasn’t. Withholding information, i.e., “I’m involved with another woman” is the same as lying. I had to wonder: was he telling his unknown beloved that he was having “deep” conversations with another female? I doubt it. That she has found love is good, and she has maintained her friendship is good, but I still don’t trust that guy! He’s cruel and he’s deceptive. And leopards don’t change their spots.
    Really interesting post. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
