10276 in Two Months

A Novel: An Unlikely Facebook Love
By Giok Ping Ang


Lim Shi Yi:
Why did you pursue me? Knowing I am married and we are continents apart.

Mark Fallen:
I don’t know. Maybe I want to die.

 

Two lonely writers, two months, two different parts of the world, 10276 facebook messages lead them into a love too strong to extract themselves from. Each day, they chat, and each day they fall deeper into a love that seems completely hopeless.

 

Is it a fleeting affection or true love? How long does a facebook love last? How do they cope with the longing as they pen love poems to each other, poems that convey their love what plain words fail to depict?
