Everything Has Changed?

Thank you, Nilva, for letting me know about “Everything Has Changed”, a song written by the American recording artist Taylor Swift and the British singer Ed Sheeran. Here is the link to the video (very cute by the way):

To Nilva, part of the lyrics matches Albert’s feelings when he first recovered from amnesia:

All I knew this morning when I woke
Is I know something now, know something now I didn’t before.
And all I’ve seen since eighteen hours ago
Is green eyes and freckles and your smile

Isn’t that true?

The first image that flashed across his mind when Albert woke up as his former self was Candy’s smiling face. See “Sharing half of a sandwich” for details if you’re interested in what I have said before regarding this.

Remember the night when Candy begged Albert to let her take care of him until he recovered? He was highly reluctant, but when he finally succumbed to her tears and earnest plea, in his mind he wished he could regain his memory as soon as possible.Candy Albert Nature Park 2

However, when his memory did return more than half a year later, he went back to this park and stayed there until dark. Judging from his conversation with his pet skunk, it seemed that he had lost track of time somehow. He appeared perplexed too, like something was bothering him. The manga doesn’t show us what he had been thinking, but it’s obvious that he was far from thrilled of his recovery. The fact that he questioned himself if he could continue to live with Candy implies that his feelings for his roommate had changed. For your interest, you can read more on this post.

    It makes perfect sense! Candy and Albert rescued each other and are very deserving of each other. Their love is a unity that is based on their mutual need and nurture for each other. Just like the sandwich scene!
    Ahh, Terry….I knew this was not the end for him! I love the character, he makes me feel the same way Candy felt…like love and hate! Argh! Nothing is simple with him, he is always putting a facade. He is intense and is like my heart skips a bit everytime you bring him back. Can’t wait now….;-)

      You’re absolutely right about Albert and Candy! About Terry, yes he’s intense indeed. Anyway, I hope you won’t be disappointed. 😉

        After 42 chapters I’ve never been disapointed, ever! I know you always keep them interesting and exciting. That’s the thing with Terry, dissapointment is expected at some level, so it’s alright. Albert on the other hand will always make the story deep and true. Thanks for our little chat, I feel very special. It’s so cool to find people that like to write about these stories and enjoy them as much as I do. I’m sure you know that everytime you write you make a lot of people so happy and put smiles in our faces. You don’t know how much of a positive impact your stories have on others. We are all around the world! Thank you so much.

          Nilva, it’s my honor indeed that you like visiting me here and read my long story! I don’t know if I have put smiles on my readers’ faces (or angst?!) but I do enjoy the writing process by unleashing my own imagination! I have also tried to make every chapter important and interesting on its own. Anyway, many thanks to your huge encouragement! You’re so right that some CC fans are around the world! I’m glad to have met some of you! 😀

    This is so nice. Thank you for posting it. Your last chapter also was amazing, full of emotions, and surprises. Candy has grown into an emotional maturity that is not usually seen in girls her age. She knew what she wanted and that gave Albert confidence to continue with the engagement. If she hesitated for one moment (and who could blame her if she did? She’s only 17!) I’m sure he would’ve call the whole thing off. Albert is worth every chance and she knew she was the one that would make it happen. I absolutely think now they are ready for the reality of marriage. I admire how you keep these characters real, although I felt Terry was a bit insensitive in his letter since he of all people should know the horrible emotional pain of these types of accidents. What about Terry maturing a bit an becoming a good friend for once and help his friends cope with the terrible ordeal? His “love” for Candy can be transformed to support her and make up for the pain he caused her in the past. You are so talented, pls keep writing and pouring out that imagination of yours…

      Hello Nilva! I’m glad you like this post, and I’ll have another post soon related to your comment earlier. 🙂

      About my chapter, thank you for reading! Yes, Candy was more mature in LNF because of all the things that had been happening to her ever since the day Albert had recovered his memory. Yes, if Candy had hesitated, Albert would not have blamed her at all. That was exactly why he pushed her away first so that she didn’t have to feel obligated to stay with him. You’re so right that Candy was crucial to Albert’s recovery this time. Without her support and presence, it wouldn’t have been the same for Albert. Once again, I gotta show that Candy had positive influence on Albert as well, and he actually needed her (as implied in his letters to Candy in CCFS). I hope this makes sense to you?

      About Terry, you’ll know why in next chapter (no spoiler here 😛 ). All I can say now is that he’s never good at expressing himself or his feelings.
