She’s a jaded thirty-something professional. She had her fair share of relationships – all of them failed. She’d been working her ass off for more than fifteen years and she hadn’t achieved any of her goals. Life made her bitter and there are no traces left of the carefree attitude that used to characterize her in her salad days .
He’s in his late twenties and is making his name in his own field. Graduating from college opened so many doors of opportunities for him that he overlooked the need to have that someone special to spend the rest of his life with. He’s got the looks, the brains, and the money. He can get any woman he chooses.
She hates his optimism.
He hates her bitterness.
She hates herself more for being drawn to his charms.
He hates himself more for being attracted to her antagonism.
She asks herself,”Am I ready to get hurt again?”
He asks himself, “Am I ready to give her a chance?”
They looked into each other’s eyes.
And found that all they can see…
are each other’s reflection.
Without words, they found themselves holding hands and walking towards an uncertain tomorrow.
