The problem is, in my zeal to contrast their initial lack of affection for one another with their obvious need to be together, I perpetuated a sort of pernicious romantic myth. I provided the Hollywood ending where you, the audience, are left to assume that they stayed in that position for hours, at great cost to the discs and muscles of the lower back.

After seeing an ending like that, your expectations are raised, and you are primed for disappointment. You may also miss real romance when you see it.

I hope he buys her flowers at their destination anyway.
