Marianela and Pablo

By Crescent17
We read this story in Spanish class called Marianela.
Don't read it if you can.

It's basically about this not-so-pretty 16 year old girl who loves this 20-something blind boy (named Pablo) but she is from a lower class and he thinks he loves this generous and gorgeous girl (named Florentina) and proposes to her.

SPOILER: Marianela tries to commit suicide, gets saved, hides from Pablo (because of her looks), when she sees him, he thinks she's just a poor girl. She kisses him 3 times on the hand and dies of a broken heart the third time.

Yeah, i guess it can be viewed as a sort of endearing story or something, but i thought it was too melodramatic and angsty. Gag.

So my friend and i made fun of this story and i drew her some pictures and we wrote an alternate version where she and him get together at the end and he loves her. =)

He wrote it in 1878 so i guess that compensates for the sad-ish ending.
