Why we love him: Alexander, a.k.a Shura, captured our hearts the moment he walked across the street and sat down on the bench next to Tatiana as she ate her ice cream. A soldier in the Red Army, he is strong- both physically and mentally. He’s passionate, noble, honorable, and devoted. He is brave and fights for those he loves, regardless of the consequences. He loves strongly, protects fiercely, and perseveres even when all the odds are stacked against him. It’s easy to see why we fell hard and fast for him.
“Don’t forget to eat well, my warm bun, my midnight sun, and kiss your hand for me, right in the palm and then press it against your heart.”
“Good-bye, my moonsong and my breath, my white nights and golden days, my fresh water and my fire. Good-bye, and may you find a better life, find comfort again and your breathless smile, and when your beloved face lights up once more at the Western sunrise, be sure what I felt for you was not in vain. Good-bye, and have faith, my Tatiana.”
