Love is so famous by now that she has had to go into hiding. Some people cross the street when they see her coming, just to avoid running into her, as if they were afraid of actually meeting her, or somehow did not deserve it.

    People like to call her names. The popular press has labeled her patient, and kind. The gossip is that she can be bitchy, fickle, and cruel. Sources close to her say that she is at times flighty and rash, but at others, the wisest voice in the room. All who have seen her agree that she is heart-stoppingly beautiful.

    Actually, Love's reputation is derived less from how she is herself, than from the effect she has on those she comes into contact with.
