Love's Perfect Imperfections- Beauty And The Beast Competition Entry

"... Still, that's the point of love; you love someone despite their flaws."
-Sophie Kinsella

Ms. Eliza Emerson is a college dropout who only has two goals in life: 1. Create art to her heart's content 2. Find her soulmate. One day, she scribbles a poem on a piece of paper, folds it up into a paper airplane, and sends it off from her apartment window. A man finds it. He is lead to her, and they fall in love. But Ms. Emerson doesn't realize that there is no such thing as a perfect relationship- a perfect person. Through her journey, she realizes that there is no flawless relationship. The best you get is when you can oversee those flaws, and realize that love is more powerful than imperfections. Something we all should realize

I dance to a waltz in my head as I scrub the round coffee tables. A date, that's what it'll be. I was so lovestruck when I arrived at the coffee shop that I didn't even bother to wipe the raindrops off of my spectacles.  That is, until Mademoiselle Brown told me to clean them off. I watch the clock that hangs over the door tick until it hits 6:00 PM. "Mademoiselle Brown," I wave across the room. "My shift's over," I say. She waves me out.

The humid air of a post-rainfall hits me quickly when I go outside. Walking down the sidewalk, I think about Benjamin. Should I call him Ben? I have so many questions for this mysterious soulmate. I wonder who he really is. 

I squeeze my hand, chastising myself. Have patience, Eliza.

Once I reach my apartment room, I kick off my boots and collapse onto my bed. Maybe I'll just skip dinner tonight, I think. As I ponder the idea, my eyelids grow heavy.

It's been a long day...
