Della’s armour was perfectly blended, with a tint of blush on the apple of her cheeks.
Growing up, she had learned how ruthless society’s judgement could be.
It was a lesson learnt when giving her heart away the first time as a fresh-faced sophomore in school.
And it’s not a mistake she’ll repeat with the love of her life.
However, this was no typical date.
The weather at the theme park was scorching and Della’s confidence, together with her make-up, was melting.
But her fears were pushed aside when she realised he had fallen on a dangerous ride.
She loved him too much to risk his life, so she instead, risked her face.
It turns out all she needed was a little faith.
