Anna's face was hidden by a swath of her long brown hair in the dark movie theater. The story line was theatrical, centered around love--that which we all aspire to but especially among people her age who feel they are invicible and the world is still their oyster. Her heart was broken by another gay man, but this time hanging out with her I made it a point not to mention him or indulge in conversation with her about him. I remember the stories she used to tell, and knew it was real for her--when he was around.
