I'm sure most of you are familiar with the story, but here is a quick recap - Girl meets boy, boy is immortal. There is a conflict and the boy has to leave town. Pledging his undying love, the boy tells the girl he will return for her.
Here's the thing, he does return, 85 years later.
I mean, I understand that to an immortal, 85 years is just a drop in the bucket. But really? If he truly loved her as he said he did, why on Earth could he not find any time to return sooner?
Did he really believe that she was just going to sit there for 85 years and wait? That he would return and there would be this joyous reunion?
I know that I can't lump all men into this delusional category, but I really can't help but wonder...
