B. More than just good friends

Love Story' 50 năm chinh phục khán giả - VnExpress Giải trí

A love story

I fell madly in love with Anton from the moment I met him. It was certainly love at first sight. I knew at once that he was the love of my life but at first, I was not sure if my love was returned or not. Within a few days, however, he had told me that he was desperately in love with me too. A couple of weeks later, we realised that we wanted to make a commitment to each other and, when Anton asked me to marry him, I immediately accepted his proposal. I’m sure we will always love each other unconditionally. Neither of us would ever consider having an affair with someone else.
