I believed that many of us believed in true love (or at least hoping for one). Sometimes I think it was just sooo sweet but sometimes I think it is a bull. Nevertheless, when love occurring (no, not to me), I cannot help to smile along with the happy people. Good treats are so hard to resist right? And there's always a catch behind it. What if your true love is the least expected people of all? What if your true love is actually your imaginary friend (IF)?
It sure as hell, gonna tear me apart. You know the drill right? The imaginary friend drill. They play, they cheer, they laugh, they kid around you and they will stay with you forever, BFF. Not. Comes the time they have to go as a sign you are ready to face the big beautiful world. Alone. Well, if you happens to be Jane, when she only had a mother that is too busy to think about herself than her daughter, a father that only meet you less than a minute to deliver a purple poodle (stuffed not the real one) and dashed off to your most favourite place in the world with his new girlfriend, so yeah, you have to face the world alone.Michael (Jane's IF) has or had been her friend from she's four till forever, or so she thought. The IF business had a different idea for them. Michael had to leave Jane on her eighth birthday party. It was so sad if you can imagined it. hehe
Then, here comes the twist. Jane can't forget about Michael even after 22 years past by. Another drill for the IFs is the child will soon forget bout the IF leaving only a pang of memories or none at all. Jane grew up to be a great woman working with her dreadful mother theater house and in a relationship with a oh so famous actor. Still, her memories of Michael remains and she wanted to make a movie of their stories together.
Michael, who had just finished his task came back to New York to relax. He's in what called as 'between the jobs'. Enjoying the city view, he saw Jane, beautiful than ever, but it was the grown up Jane. He is sure as hell that she won't remember him but he couldn't stop himself from stalking her. Eventually they met, and you guys have to guess the remaining part yourself.... hahahahaha (what a dope I am)
The story was beautiful. Full of love and passion. If a person doesn't state that he/she doesn't loves ya it doesn't mean they don't. Sometimes, you just know. ( : They got a movie bout this novel but I haven't watched it, only the trailer. The first scene is already a bluff. Michael is not a kid! He's a grown up thirty-ish guy and will stay thirty-ish forever! Huh. that's why I hate it when novels were turned into movie. They just don't get it right. *pout* Ahh, before I forgot, Cecilia Ahern - If You Could See me now is one of the best story bout IF. I LOVE IT. Till then, enjoy your long holidays guys!
Eric Winter is kinda cute, huh? *blush*
