Dear readers. What do you think about this situation? Do you think Max was right buying those plane tickets? Do you think Max is really in love with Anna? What do you think will happen in the next dialogue?



Anna's text 8


Do you think Anna will go to the airport? If you were Anna, would you go to the airport? What would you do? Every year a lot of couples split up. Many of them break because of a third person. What do you think about infidelity? Do you think love is eternal?

Every Breath You Take

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you.

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you.

Oh can't you see
You belong to me?
How my poor heart aches with every step you take.

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you.

Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace.
I dream at night, I can only see your face.
I look around but it's you I can't replace.
I feel so cold, and I long for your embrace.
I keep crying baby, baby, please...

Oh can't you see
You belong to me?
How my poor heart aches with every step you take.

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you.

Every move you make
Every step you take
I'll be watching you...

I'll be watching you
