Birthday present!

Those who have read my long story Love Never Fails (El Amor Nunca Falla) might have known that in Chapter 4, Albert and Candy were outside when it was raining heavily. As a result, they were soaking wet, through and through. After they got home together, Candy had her shower first, so Albert removed his wet shirt, waiting for his turn to use the bathroom. Later, when Candy gawked at the sight of his bare back, Albert turned around, and their gaze met. 🙂

Come to think of it, in Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), they had lived together for so long before Albert vanished in Candy’s life. As much as he strove to be discreet, Candy might have seen him topless more than once. 😉 😛 (In the manga, she had seen him shirtless at least twice, once after the lion’s attack and once in Lakewood.) Do you honestly think that she could remain unaffected and feel absolutely nothing all this time? 🙄

In fact, Candy answered this question in CCFS by indicating that she understood Albert held a special place in her heart. See Argh, he’s driving me crazy… for details. 🙂

Anyway, based on the scene described above, let me present my birthday gift to Candy’s beloved Prince on the Hill ❤❤❤ :

    Un saludo cordial Ms. Puddle
    Felicidades por tan hermosa obra, yo soy un poco tímida y solamente diré que hermosos ojos azules tiene Albert, Usted a captado toda la belleza de su alma en ellos, ahora comprendo porque Candy estaba desesperada por encontrarlo en Roswtook.

    ¡FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS! ALBERT

    1. Muchas gracias, Vera!! Warm greetings to you! 🙂 Glad you like Albert’s blue eyes in the drawing. I’m sure he had a pair of captivating eyes that drew people to him effortlessly. 🙂 But I think Candy felt attached to him not just because of his good looks, but also because he could give her the sense of security that nobody else could. He had truly cared about her after all. Sigh! 😉

    Hahahhaha … the comments before me are all hilarious. Antlay’s is the most entertaining 😀

    My friend, I don’t know what to say … I don’t even know what adjective I should use to describe this fan art. Delicious, maybe? 🙂

    A very fine fan-art, Ms Puddle! Bravo.
    And to you, Prince Of The Hill, Happy Birthday! <3 <3

    1. Hello Reeka! Delicious?! Great choice! 😉 How could Candy feel nothing at all, living with a handsome friend who was tender and cared about her a lot?

      Thank you for your encouraging words, my friend! ❤❤❤❤

        Yes, and in manga, when she bandaged him, I believe she touched him, right? 😀 And the proximity was really close, as well. Too bad there was dr Martin. LOL

        1. Yes I have similar thoughts too, dear Reeka. Candy was highly emotional, and Albert was injured because of her. Imagine the impact. Sigh…

    Wow! Very sexy Albert indeed! So, Candy is staring at this shirtless Albert? There is no way she did not develop a physical attraction since you put it this way dear Ms Puddle! Happy birthday Albert!! 😀 😉 ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Hola Evelyn! Yes, in the story Candy couldn’t help staring at her roommate’s bare back! How could she not? He was a handsome man with athletic build after all. ❤❤❤❤ Besides, back then it wasn’t common for men to bare their torsos, unlike nowadays. 😉

        Hola friend! Interesting what you say that it wasn’t common to see men in bare torsos! I had not thought about that! But as you mentioned Candy saw Albert at least twice that we know of and I’m sure there were other times not mentioned 🙂
        Likewise, I’m sure Albert must have seen Candy in compromising situations and I wonder how he felt 😉 Their relationship was very intimate and special all along. ❤️

        1. Yes indeed, Evelyn! Men and women were more modest and reserved back then, and there were modesty police on the beaches just to make sure! 😆 (for your interest, here is an interesting link: http://www.vintagedancer.com/1920s/1920s-swimsuits/)

          Like you, I think there were other times Candy had seen Albert shirtless, or as you said, compromising situations… The same applied to Albert too. I also wonder how he must have felt. How could they not develop physical attraction to each other? Especially when he had no idea who she was… ❤❤

            Thank you so much for sharing such a cool website dear Ms Puddle! This is so incredible to look back at the 1920’s bathing suite fashion for both men and women!! I loved to see the picture of 1922 Beach Police Modesty Check, Nice! 😀 Men would wear full tees and then it downgraded to wool tanks, shorts and lace up shoes or boots! 🙂 So different but fascinating!! I really never looked into this era until now.

            If I remember well, Candy wore a similar but shorter bathing suite when she met up with her friends, during nursing school on her day off I think, and Albert was amnesic already. Sigh! I always thought Candy’s dress style was pretty fashionable for its time and it showed her figure very well! So I can see why Albert not wearing his shirt was a pretty big deal. On the flip side Albert was also confident and comfortable around Candy not wearing his shirt don’t you think? 😉 Yes indeed, how could they not develop a physical attraction for each other? It was obvious they both wanted to live and be together!! 😀

              I know, dear Evelyn!! It’s amazing how people had become less and less modest over the years. It was uncommon for men to bare their tops until 40s I heard. I guess people back then would faint if someone show them the bikinis lol!!

              Yes in the manga Candy and Annie swimming outfits looked fine but Stear and Archie should have worn tank tops (like the one shown at the end of The Great Gatsby). 😉

              Yes, Evelyn, I think over time Albert became less self-conscious not wearing his shirt even when Candy was around. The scene in the Lakewood cabin proved that. 😉 Candy was just a young lady, and how could she not feel anything? 😀
