Pleasuring his lover Their love story started out like a scene from a teenage movie. He was a well-sought after celebrity (AC) in his field, who has had his own share of intrigues despite not really part of show business. She was, a refreshing personality (RP), who rose to fame by doing the rounds of fantasy dramas. AC merely asked RP out publicly, and RP responded positively. From that first date, they became inseparable. Despite their busy schedules and sometimes, physical distance from each other, AC and RP managed to build a special relationship. However, there was a very personal problem that cropped up in the course of their relationship. For males born in the Philippines, certain customs are followed because of religious and medical reasons. Since AC was

raised abroad, he was spared from the traditional practice, but RP felt uncomfortable with that idea. Hence, RP encouraged AC to undergo the procedure. She even went with him to the hospital when he had to go under the knife, so to speak. With modern laser technology, RP missed out the fun of wearing balloon skirts and staying still for some days until the wound completely healed. Within a few days, AC was back to his routine, while RP was happier that AC finally had it done. Incidentally, one of the conditions RP set before any marriage plans with AC was that procedure. Well, AC was eager to please. Can you identify the characters in this story?*fashionpulis
