“Since the invention of the kiss, there have only been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind.” Including the sweet one at the beginning of the story. I’ve heard it said before, so i’ll say it again here, “to be someones first love is a gift, but to be someones last love is truly amazing.” Don’t give up on the possible love story you were meant to live. What you’ve felt in the past may have been good, but how great would it be to be loved by someone who loves you deeper than you’ve ever thought possible. A love that won’t leave you in a fire-swamp alone, that will cling to the cliffs, overcome their toughest battles to be by your side, and be just as impressed of you as you do the same.
“Good work, sleep well, I’ll most likely kill you in the morning“, seems to have been more than a threat to young Westley. Could it have become a gift? The ideals and hope of true love may spare a pirate from slaying you at the end of the day, but truly life-saving love includes what good work we are willing to do daily to spare us another chance to wake up and love again through to the next sunset. “As you wish” was an “I love you” that became a deeper virtue to work for and hold true to daily. Is life about survival? Yes, and we were made to survive- hand in hand. Even if your ideal prince or princess from the start of the story has abandoned you- your ideals of love can deepen from a passionate perspective from this most mysterious pirate.
Keep being good, keep searching for good. Keep holding to the ideals of true love.
