“Her heart/His story” By A.Dakala

What are the chances that two people looking for love, cross paths from two different states. Both divorced, but apparently an alone weekend birthday trip to the mountains and a dating app connected two individuals in a way that would last forever.

On a typical day in New Orleans, Tony would get off from work, search through his dating profile; swiping more to the left than right. It wasn’t about the looks all the time that attracted him to a woman; maybe the eyes, the lips, hair style, the hair or just the information on the an individual’s page. Then there was Roni.

That night headed into the morning; Roni texted Tony asking to video chat but Tony didn’t respond. Not knowing that he had fallen asleep, she assumed he had a woman and was unable to talk.
