A boy’s first love, and in this case, the affair was with an older woman, saw its effects lingering and making an impact even when that summer has gone.
The boy is the reader. That is his role whenever he comes to his lover’s place. And unknowingly, that role is repeated again when the woman needs that tinge of hope to carry on with life after being sentenced to life imprisonment for her past.
There was a refrain, “The more I suffer, the more I love”, spoken by the boy to describe his love. Maybe, it is true.
