[Reviews - 7] starstarstarstarstarPrinter


The story takes place in September 2013 when Olli returned to England with Christian after Christian's latest cheating episode. This is my first attempt at writing a fan fiction—or any kind of fiction, for that matter. I wrote it because:

(1) I wanted to see if I could. It will of course be up to anyone who reads it to decide for himself/herself whether I succeeded at that.

(2) I got so frustrated about the fact that the Verbotene Liebe writers left us hanging about what took place when Olli went with Christian to England. Olli returned to Dusseldorf acting like everything was fine with no mention of what they did or what they discussed or whether Olli actually forgave Christian. So I wanted to fill in those blanks with my take on what should have happened during Olli's visit, with Christian and Olli finally behaving like two mature adults who were serious about saving their marriage. I was going for realism rather than romanticism, but I think you'll find Olli and Christian much more articulate than VL ever allowed them to be.

If you do read it please feel free to let me know what you think in the reviews. Constructive comments/criticism are always welcome.
