Thanks for reading and the reply Artax. When I wrote the story, there was a 1500 word limit , which is why it’s so short and at some points unclear. Pointing out the typo’s will help also. The ending is supposed to contradict itself. I don’t want to give too much away here by what it’s supposed to mean at the end, but he’s left age old question; how important is beauty in the relationship. Does he chose the relationship or to start his life over again. Hope that helps.
