I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderfully sweet and utterly adorable this is. I am a veritable puddle of love right now. Everything about this was wonderful, though I feel I need to extract the one sentence that impacted on me the most.
"He found himself imprisoned by an unrequited longing that hurt in the best possible way – pain that burned just enough to feel pleasant, so that while Jim hated himself for falling in the first place, he never wanted to relinquish this feeling."
That is by far the best description of what unrequited love feels like I have ever come across. Perhaps it's the circumstance - I know how Jim feels here, for I feel that way. Still, it's masterful. Thank you.
