    Dear Najuliet:
    First of all, YES I can love some body like Romeo loved Juliet. But they died at the end, is not that a scary part? LOL just kidding.
    Secondly, could you please make your next posts short. Because it took my three long seconds to scroll your whole post down. Imagine how long would it have been taken if I had started to read it?
