dammit i did the assignment wrong
oh well, i like it, so i may as well put it somewhere
the instructions were:
Write a short narrative of a romantic beginning or ending. This text should be at least 7 sentences long and may run up to 10 sentences in length. (Approximately 125-50 words.)
but oops i didn’t make sentences or make it a beginning or ending
