First off, I would like to thank you for this wonderful story. It is exactly my kind of read. Funny, Romantic and has tid-bits of drama in it.
I have been meaning to read this 3x already since I checked my email, but failed miserably and only had the chance to read it now since I'm having time constrains between work and real life. So I hope you're not disappointed on my very late comment. Oh, btw I didn't mind how long it was because I liked reading it so much I didn't even notice it was THAT long! lolz.
Also, there were 2 statements I would like to point out. These are my favorite lines in your story:"How ridiculous, here she was sitting crying thinking about how her boyfriend had totally ruined KitKat for her forever."
- I was laughing my ass out with this line. I can't believe you included that there, because, I LOVE KITKAT. It's one of my favorite chocolates and I could just imagine Jun ruining Mao's favorite chocolate for her because of that line "Let's take a break" LOL!She had always just been so damn available to him that he’d taken her for granted. She had made mistakes just as much as he did. When she wanted him to pay attention to her, she didn’t scream out until it was too late, but now it really was too late for them.
- This one made my heart break, why? Here's the truth: The plot line is actually about me and my very own love story. So yes, you just wrote the very thing I have felt during that time. It was like an arrow was shot through my heart, my eyes watered as I read that. It was really heart breaking to remember how THAT felt. 8 years was pretty much a long time - the memories were all there but when your heart really opens up to someone else, 8 years just becomes a number. Nothing more, nothing less.
So thank you so much for choosing this plot line. I was really surprised that you decided to pick this plot out of all the 3 choices, the plot really meant a lot to me, and so does this story. THANK YOU Lillith! *hugs*
Author's Response: Dear Shan,
AHHH <3 I'm so happy you enjoyed it. Phew! *lets out huge sigh of relief* Honestly this plot spoke to me more than the others. I don't know why o.o but something about how summer-y it was and how perfect the characters sounded ended up attracting me I guess. It was almost too easy to write because by the time I put my fingers on the keyboard I already knew exactly where it was going. Now I'm even more in awe after I've heard more about why you put it in as one of your three plot bunnies. (ALSO phew thank god it wasn't that long to you T.T)
I'M SO GLAD YOU LIKE THE KITKAT LINE :D it's one of my favs too :)
Also...I remember you telling me about your ex I think before in another review on Erika. I'm sorry it didn't work out but it did end up being for the best if you found someone as adorable as the Toma you plotted in this bunny. :) Time is fluid and honestly you should live each day to the most and as long as you've found someone who values the time they spend with you and the time you spend back with them, then that's the most important part. You're a great person and you deserve all the happiness in the world and you deserve a man who understands what a gem you are :)
Is it crazy I just want to give you a big old hug right now? *HUGS* Your review made me tear up a little...I don't like the idea of you having to remember your heart break :( so I'm sorry for that but I am so happy you opened your heart up to someone else :)
THANK YOU SHAN! For being brave enough to trust a secret author with this plot and for telling me everything you felt as a reader even though it was personal. I actually really appreciate you making that connection with me. And...I kinda wanna hug you again so *INTERNET HUG PART II*
I hope your life is going well and work doesn't get you too busy! (and if you have LINE, or Whatsapp, or Gtalk or something :) we should catch up on that, it's been a while since I caught you online.
