About this submission

The main message I'm trying to convey with this story is how all-consuming that "first love" can make you feel, and because you're in such a state of joy - you can do drastic things to try and preserve that moment. When we look at epic loves in literature, like Romeo & Juliet, and more recently, Twilight, the notion of immortality and eternity in relationships is frequently positioned as desirable. However, it is often a misguided aspiration for the naive, inexperienced characters, as they are not ready for the consequences. This is something I wanted to explore.
