The fountain of dreams.

Have you ever wondered if myths could be true? ever thought about the the theory 'good things come to those who wait'? But what if you can't wait any longer?


1. The fountain of dreams.

Love - “An intense emotion of affection, warmth, fondness and regard towards a person or thing.”


How do we know when were in love? You cant hear it, you can’t smell it and you certainly can’t touch it. It’s a feeling inside of us, well so they say, but how do you actually know when you’re in love? Its impossible to tell, but I want it.
