I stared at Olivia in disbelief as I read the poster. 'You said speed date, not impede date. I've spent most of my life in the dark about will a blindfold help me?'

        'It's not that bad I promise,' she said at great speed. 'Besides, it's the latest thing and I know loads of people who've done it. You should face your fears Kate. You know it's the only way to overcome them.'

This story is the best i have read in a long time. The twist seems so real and makes the story work in my opinion this story is better than the real one. This story has everything I like in a story which is , romance and a happy ending.
                              I Love this story.

It's where the fairy tale idea all started! This was published in a little book of short stories called The Ways of Love, after I entered a competition. So it does pay to enter your writing into every competition you can! ;)
