It was love at first sight,
They were so perfect for each other,
It was almost as if they were the last two missing pieces of a puzzle.
But there was a catch,
She was real and he wasn’t.
“If only fictional characters were real,” she thought wistfully,
as she finished reading the book.

It’s too bad that when some of your favourite people exist only between book covers.. *sigh*
My apologies for the late update. I’m not feeling very well. I’ve got a head-splitting headache. I can’t wait to publish this post and go back to sleep. It’s that bad. So kindly bear with me because it’ll take me a while to reply to your comments!

But please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts. Have you ever wished that a fictional character was real? If so, which character? Feel free to hijack the comments section!
I have decided to join my fellow bloggers Sue and Melanie in displaying “a list of all the fiction-based A to Zs on all of our blogs, and thus engage in the ancient art of Online Cross-Promotion.” Do visit my fellow A to Z Fictioneers whose blogs I’ve displayed on the sidebar!
