Wow that was so sad. All of it. But...I mean I feel really sorry for Ava and how upset she is and everything...I really do...but she's so stupid. I mean about social views. And Ian is too. Even if their parents and the socialites don't like their relationship, that doesn't mean he can't work for the company and it doesn't mean they can't be together. Wouldn't most people, outside that small social circle, like that someone rich and famous was dating someone normal? That is if she's a kind, intelligent, normal person from the middle (or lower?) class? That would look good. It would make him seem more relatable and down-to-earth. I don't know what the company does, but I don't see why everyone would criticize their rationship so much...and if they're both still in love I don't understand why they would let that get between them.
But at the same time I guess I do kind of understand. Those kinds of things can be wearing on a relationship, especially coming from the parents. I'm also wondering where Ava's parents are in all of this. But while I feel bad for her and I do believe she loves him quite a lot, I can't help but think that...if they can't past something like that, even when they're in love...they're just not meant to be. Their relationship just isn't that strong.
I don't know, maybe I'm viewing this in a weird way, but that's just how I feel right now...maybe I'm biased because I love Louis so much and he likes her.
Speaking of Louis -he is so sweet. I adore him. And I think he was upset because Ava said their tryst was a mistake. He's adorable. And I feel so bad for him because he's really in a weird place, isn't he? He clearly likes Ava and cares about her, but she sees Ian every time she looks at him. I suppose it's probably not horrible right now, since they hardly know each other, though.
Matt is also great ❤
Author's Response: I know. It was sad. I seem to have that problem with my writing, haha. You have a good point - most people are thrilled when famous/important figures start dating normal people. However, in this case, it's the upper class that's the problem. Since Ian's family runs with the higher ups, those are the people they're concerned about. Those are the people's opinions who matter to them, and those people just don't like Ava. They don't like her clothes, they don't like her manners (or lack of them), they don't like her job, and they don't like her status. So it's not that /everyone/ was criticizing their relationship, just the peeps who Ian's family really care about. You know how it is, like on TV shows with the elite circle of people who know everyone's business. Yeah.
THIS. A lot of it also had to do with his parents - we'll see more about that later on. She /does/ love him more than anything, but you're right. If they can't get over this, then...
Haha, maybe you are biased, but I'm glad you love Louis :)
He is a sweetheart when you get past the exterior. He just doesn't like to share his feelings, you know? He's definitely in a weird place - I mean, that kind of situation is always awkward, regardless of how you feel about the other person.
Thanks for the lovely review, and I'm sorry it took so long to reply! The next chapter is in the queue ♥
