Love According to me, Hermione.
Disclaimer: I don't own these
characters, yadda, yadda, yadda.
I don't believe in love.
I suppose I used to believe, but things change when
society makes love seem like the solution to all our problems, superficial in other
words. No one ever falls in true love anymore. People fall in 'love' for
money, or looks in most cases.
In ancient Greece, Aphrodite was the Goddess of love.
She solved all problems in love, but created many. Love was still corrupt back
then, but it could be fixed with a little help from the Gods.
Maybe that is part of what threw me off, I didn't
want to end up like so many couples I know, and don't know in celebrity's
cases. If I ever get married, then I want marriage to be a lifetime commitment
rather than a three-month one.
Love makes people act like they're crazy, not at all
like what they should be. They no longer belong to themselves alone, but to
another person as well, chained to them for life.
Love complicates. It makes life too messy to live in,
but people don't notice. They are way too busy staring in the other person's
eyes. How can a person live like that?! I don't get it.
My mum says she fell in love with dad at first sight.
Ha! There is no such thing as 'love at first sight'. People who say that prove
just how emotionally shallow today's society is.
Movies with romantic themes just prove my point even
more. In those types of movies you never see normal-looking people; the main
characters are always beautiful people. If the movie would continue on
after the original planned end, you might see that couple get married,
only to be divorced a few months later when one person realizes that their
significant other is not only beautiful, but incredibly conceded.
That is why I would never let myself fall in love.
It's too hard now, and too artificial.
That is until it happened.
Love struck me like a bolt of lightning.
You know I fell for the one person I thought I could
never fall for.
He was all wrong for me.
He was brave, not to say that I was a coward, but he
had been through so many things I hadn't had to do. He was much more confident,
he never studied and he broke rules!
But, worse than that, he was my best friend.
I can't describe what makes me so in love with him.
Everything to start,
I guess. I love his personality, his
bravery, his freckles, his fuzzy red hair, I even love how he never
studies, which was something I was sure I could never love.
But do you know what the best part is?
He loves me back.
