(A True Love-Story)
You may have heard or read about Patrick’s love-story, but I hadn’t. I chanced upon this link on the Reader’s Digest site, and I was smitten. This story is about a young man who thought of a novel way of finding the girl of his dreams.
Here’s this short and sweet love-story, in my words – presenting the images that formed in my mind as I went through the above link.
Patrick threw away the blanket, leaped out of the bed. He had an idea.
He rushed to his table and pulled out his sketchbook from under the huge untidy pile of papers and books. Some of the books caught the momentum and flew off the desk, as did a few papers, and his box of color-pencils. He’d pick them up later. Right now, he had to do something that was a lot more important. Sketch her. He pulled his chair, caught a pencil that was about to roll off the table, and opened the sketchbook…and then it hit him. His scanner wasn’t working. So what? He was a web-designer and he had Photoshop – the God of all image-editing applications!
So, he began drawing. It was a basic drawing, but it had all the information. The yellow flower in her partly braided hair, the light-blue shorts over the dark-blue slacks, and the notebook too. The notebook that she was scribbling something in. What was she scribbling? This wasn’t the time to ask questions – perhaps there would be a time…perhaps he’d find her.
He had lost his heart to her when he had seen her at the Union Square subway station in New York City. He and she had gotten on the same train – but then she disappeared in the crowd that got into the train at the Bowling Green station. He couldn’t follow her. That would be stalking and Patrick wouldn’t do something as crass as that. He didn’t know then that her name was Camille and that she was an Australian. But he had carried home a picture of this pretty girl with a flower in her hair, and it was this picture that will help him find her.
Up came a new website called nygirlofmydreams.com, and along came a spate of information and a flood of women infatuated with this romantic man. Luckily for him and perhaps for her too, Camille’s friend came to know about this website, and he got in touch with Patrick.
So Patrick found Camille. There first meeting happened on Good Morning America…(weird?)… and this is how they look together.
This is how we tell ourselves that true loves shows us the way…or why would Patrick think of putting up a website, why would the website go viral, and why would it be seen by Camille’s friends?
Do you think not?
I think you don’t 🙂
