A friend knows everything about you…usually he/she is there for you all the time, satisfying your needs, being helpful and nice and thoughtful, without any concern for getting something in return…how that can be seen as love? Passionate love I mean…While writing about Simone and Edward’s relationship I was thinking about it…about the great friends I have and had during my life, and how great it would be if we had become lovers…or how disastrous…what do you think? Can Simone be happy with her lifelong friend becoming her lover or should they remain good friends forever not taking the risk of spoiling a great friendship?
