‘PARIS EVER AFTER’ by K.S.R. BURNS
I listen but as usual comprehend little, which frees my mind to wander. What an unlikely couple they are, Manu and Sophie. He’s measured and calm; she’s jittery. He’s considerate and kind; she’s self-absorbed, from what I can tell.
Not only that, they don’t look alike. Kat subscribed to the theory that we’re attracted to people we physically resemble. Study the wedding photos in any newspaper, she claimed, and you’ll see how often the happy bride and groom share the same smile or brow line or chin. I tried this. It’s true.
Nevertheless, some of us still irrationally insist on falling in love with people who look nothing like us and are probably our antonyms in every other way. Like Manu, who is dark-haired and amiable, and Sophie, who has flaxen locks and thin skin – both literally and metaphorically. The Manu – Sophie couple makes me nauseous, but I have to stop dwelling on something that isn’t any of my business. I need to focus on my own future.
