And, it makes Bloom struggles with his loyalties. As the Stephen’s scheme take them into an unexpected situation, Bloom finally have to make his own way after living a fake life since he was 10
Nice story with unexpected twist, and such a beautiful ending 😀
Bloom: Do you feel cheated?
Penelope Stamp: Trick to being cheated is to learn how to cheat.
Stephen: The perfect con is one where everyone involved gets just what they wanted.
Penelope Stamp: This was a story about a girl who could find infinite beauty in anything, any little thing, and even love the person she was trapped with. And i told myself this story until it became true. Now, did doing this help me escape a wasted life? Or did it blind me so I didn’t want to escape it? I don’t know, but either way I was the one telling my own story…
I hope I’ll be the one telling my own story 😀
