Love stories of Falushtain

Many girls of Falushtain have lost sleep over the dreamy face of Emmet. His large sorrowful blue eyes and his soft, kindly attitude make him quite irresistible. Pale, brooding and utterly handsome, he sits in his favourite spot in the graveyard, running his hands through his disheveled hair as he pores over his verses.
Multe fete din Falushtain stau treze noaptea gandindu-se la fatza visatoare a lui Emmet. Ochii lui mari, albastri si tristi si atitudinea lui blanda il fac irezistibil. Palid, ganditor si teribil de frumos, el sta in locul lui preferat din cimitir, trecandu-si mainile prin parul dezordonat in timp ce mediteaza asupra propriilor versuri.
Emmet is well known in the community of Falushtain. As befits all poets, he drinks absinthe, eats barely anything, and has not laughed in the past 10 years.
But there is no hope for any girl of Falushtain but one. Emmet's heart belongs to Sylvia only, and every verse he writes is for her.
Emmet e binecunoscut in comunitatea din Falushtain. Dupa cum ii sade bine oricarui poet, el bea absint, nu mananca mai nimic si nu a ras deloc in ultimii 10 ani.
Dar nu exista speranta pentru nici o fata din Falushtain in afara de una. Inima lui Emmet apartine Sylviei, si fiecare vers pe care il scrie e pentru ea.

Here is one sample of the many expressions of his undying love:
Iata o mostra din multele expresii ale iubirii sale eterne:

Sylvia is the light of my day
With her I feel airy, like a souffle -
Without her, my heart hangs heavy and gray
And life is a giant bouquet of decay.

But Sylvia is as cold and relentless as Emmet is passionate. Sarcastic, sharp and oh so beautiful, she does have a soft spot for Emmet but would not admit it in a million years. Even if she annihilates Emmet's idealistic endeavours with her keen irony, she secretly looks after his wellbeing. Emmet would never have managed to get his poems published without Sylvia's intervention, and he would probably starve to death without her household help.
Dar Sylvia e pe atat de rece si neiertatoare pe cat este Emet de pasional. Sarcastica, taioasa si atat de frumoasa, ea are o slabiciune pentru Emmet, dar nu ar recunoaste asta niciodata. Chiar daca anihileaza cu ironia ei ascutita toate demersurile idealiste ale lui Emmet, se ingrijeste in secret de bunastarea lui. Emmet nu ar fi reusit sa-si publice poeziile fara interventia ei, si probabil ca ar muri de foame fara ajutorul casnic al Sylviei.
Everyone in Falushtain agrees they make an odd couple. But what's a bit of odd in a land where zombies are respectable teachers and two-headed creatures hold functions in the local administration?
Toata lumea in Falushtain e de acord ca sunt un cuplu ciudat. Dar ce-i un pic de ciudatzenie intr-un taram unde zombie sunt profesori respectabili, iar creaturi cu doua capete ocupa functii in administratia locala?

Sylvia and Emmet are for sale (hopefully together) in my online shop.
Sylvia si Emmet sunt de vanzare (sper ca impreuna) in magazinul meu virtual.

Sylvia e minunata :-) (i-am mai spus, parca). Emmet este un pic odd :-) Dar le sta bine impreuna.

PS. Stii ce ma gandeam, ai putea sa faci o papusa MJ (Wacko Jacko as a matter of fact. Stiu ca tu nu esti into pop music, dar ai stil. O cumpar eu:-)
