All good things must come to an end.

Girl: Do you know about Alice?

Boy: The girl from twilight?

Girl: No, the loneliest whale in the world

Boy: What?

Girl: Alice isn’t like the others. While all the other Baleen whales communicate at 15 hertz, she speaks at 52 Hertz, scaring all the other whales away

Boy: Sad

Girl: She doesn’t even follow the same migration patter as the others; she just roams the ocean singing a sad love song.

Boy: Why?

Girl: She’s different.

Boy: She’s lucky.

Girl: How is she lucky? She wanders alone in the ocean, without anyone.

Boy: She’s different, not many people are.

Girl: People can’t be compared to whales.

Boy: Why not?

Girl: Because Alice scares the others away because of her voice, because she cant communicate with them. Whales can’t be expected to show love and understanding. People can.

Boy: But do they? Humans aren’t accepting either. If something scares them, if something is different, most humans will also keep their distance.

Girl: But there’s love. Humans know how to love.

Boy: You don’t think whales can love?

Girl: I don’t know.

Boy: How do you know she’s not out there looking for someone just liker her, the love of her life?

Girl: Because she hasn’t found him yet.

Boy: Love requires patience.

Girl: Why don’t they call out to each other?

Boy: Maybe her lover can’t communicate with her.

Girl: How can he love her if he can’t talk to her, if he can’t understand her?

Boy: Because love can’t be confined to words.

Girl: Then how did they fall in love?

Boy: He fell for her and wooed her until she fell for him, just like I did with you.

Girl: Now you’re saving her lover exists and is out there?

Boy: He must.

Girl: Why?

Boy: Because every unique individual has someone deeply in love with them.

Girl: Then where is he?

Boy: They fought and lost each other in the dark. They couldn’t communicate and swam too far away. Now they look for each other, wanting to repent.

Girl: They lost each other because of a fight?

Boy: Anger makes you suffer.

Girl: Promise me, we will never fight.

Boy: We will always fight

Girl: But…

Boy: But we will never let go of each other because we can communicate. Even if we can’t understand each other all the time, we can always make each other understand.

Girl: We’ll make it through?

Boy: Alice will find her love and I will always love you my dear

Girl: Did you know some whales commit suicide?

Boy: No, fortunately I didn’t know that.

I like how you turned such a simple topic, a lonely baleen whale, into a skit with a powerful meaning about love and human spirit.

I used to think falling in love would be personal. But it's all a big public show.

Although the theme is a bit morose, yet it is interesting, it draws the reader in the scene. But love cannot be treated on superficial borders only; love is boundless, and if i be a bit candid, exposed. Anyway, nice read.
