A - If I’m in love.

I don’t think so. Not anymore.

C - How long it’s been since I’ve kissed.

All my life. Never been kissed.

One in each.


G - The last person I said ‘I love you’ to.

My best friend. Love you Bae

J - Are you insecure. What about?

No. There are certain things I don’t like about myself, but I know who I am and I embrace it. Any shyness comes from my social anxiety.

"At the height of the Great Depression, two small-town kids from the middle of nowhere became the biggest folk heroes in all of America. Their names were Bonnie and Clyde. Unafraid, unashamed, and irresistible, their daring story of love and crime captured the imagination of a country. Today, the most infamous duo of the 20th century takes aim at a whole new target: Broadway.” (source)
