A long time ago, Chris fell in love. She wasn't the prettiest, but Chris loved her anyway. He was mesmerized. She taught him the true meaning of love. But, sadly, like most love stories, this one came to an end. One day, Chris simply walked out the door. He just left her there... waiting, wanting, and missing him. To this day, Chris regrets his foolishness, but he will never forget his beloved Commodore 64.
