The daily lives of those around us are sometimes sweet, and sometimes bitter.
Your ex-lover’s wedding, a student and a teacher at an all-boys school, a childhood friend approaching the mental and physical changes of their youth. No matter who and no matter in what way, love has equal value. One day, the thoughts spent on a shy love will become a precious memory.
