The Ballad of Calle and Maja — a short story

Maja sends crushes to Calle who becomes infatuated. But as Calle's affection intensifies, the fear of failing seizes him, becoming increasingly unsure of himself. Lonely and vulnerable as long as he could remember, Calle had suffered a string of one-night stands and relentless unrequited love. Calle also bears psychological scars after recently venturing on an online cat-fishing site, where he forfeited much of his bank savings. At length, Calle decides to pursue Maja's love as if it were a matter of life and death.

Meanwhile, Maja has love problems of her own, which becomes somewhat of a problem for Calle. But he remains defiant, intending to win Maja's love — a dream which evaded him all through his life. Eternal love.
