Sonya was writing the usual love story about two young lovers from opposite sides of the track and included this. "Simon and Samantha had been in love with each other since they were 14, concealing their love from everyone except their closest friends because they knew their parents would disapprove. Now they were taking A-levels and, although they were still deeply in love, they decided to apply to different universities because each of them wanted to search for their own density."
