'The Lover and The Other'
Narrative Short

The Lover and the Other is a story that could be about me, or about you, it is a fear which is in everyone’s minds. As my friend File told me when showing me his original short paragraph “this is a situation that we will all face between the ages of 15 to 25” - Everyone will need to face this conversation at some point, or has felt they are in a relationship where they fail to meet each others’ expectations. Sometimes it is so difficult to communicate such feelings that people come up with with strange ways to talk about their love stories. File never got to tell his Other what he really felt and he wrote it down instead, just like the main character in the short, trying to express his feelings through a dance, to a song which is yet to be written, for a relationship that has never existed the way he dreamed it.
