A Thousand Years of Johnny Von
- 576 Wörter
- Ab 16 Jahren
Sure, Johnny Von is a real life movie star
on the rise,
but that's no reason to think he won't fall in love with Estella?
I'm mean, she's nice, and genuine, and probably pretty enough. After all, this could be what the universe has been planning for her, placing her on the quiet, light dappled street where he lives, walking dogs in the Hollywood Hills. This could be why, at 33, she is still single, why the International Playboy wasn't the 'one!' The universe has been saving her for THIS!
The only hitch is that in order to fall in love, Estella will have to talk to Johnny Von. It's going to be a problem. And not just a logistics problem, being that she is a dog walker with tendencies towards shyness and he is a big, beautiful movie star. Creating a meeting is one thing, but actually opening her mouth to speak to him is going to be an Everest of a challenge for Estella!
If only he were someone like, say, Johnny Von the Priest, battling his faith in 1574 in love with a young orphaned Estella, or Johnny Von the Bossman in 1901 and Estella was a young girl running the plantation, all on her own. Yep. That would be easier. If it was 1592 and he was a Venetian Silk Trader and she was a famous courtesan! She would really have confidence then. Or 2574, and Johnny Von the Scientist is about to save the world by solving Xbox 6000!
So, maybe Estella doesn't have a network of supportive girl friends to bolster her confidence, but she has the dogs. She has Moochie. And, she is about to learn that sometimes that's all you need, the love of a good dog and a little imagination...to get you where you need to be; to get you home to the big love that's meant to be yours.
