The mood of the story is warm and lovely because the story was romantic, dramatic and happy.
Quotes
- "True love is rare, and it's the only
thing that gives life real meaning."

ideal man -- the prince or knight of her
childhood stories. In the real world,
however, men like that simply didn't exist."

I knew if I gave you enough time, you'd
come back to me."
