The disturbing thing about this Jerome character is that, taken out of context, almost all of his lines could have come straight from the male lead in a romance comic. All that 'we were destined to be lovers' stuff... "You want me as much as I want you"... "There's a certain cure for loneliness"... I swear, all he had to say was something along the lines of 'you little fool, can't you tell that I love you?', and the illusion would be complete. I half-expected her to melt into his arms, with an accompanying caption of 'At last - true love had found me! I would be lonely no more!'
