She renamed herself Anna because of her obsessive love of symmetry. She owns two of everything and when she touches a piece of paper, she has to fold it in half. Anna lives at the beach, which means the view out her window is of an undisturbed horizon line, creating a perfectly divided composition. Unfortunately, Anna is also claustrophobic. So, when she met Otto, who also had a perverse desire for symmetry, it seemed perfect. The only problem is that Otto always wants to sit so close to Anna and Anna to close so sit to wants always Otto that is problem only The. perfect seemed it, symmetry for desire perverse a had also who, Otto met she when, So. claustrophobic also is Anna, Unfortunately. composition divided perfectly a creating, line horizon undisturbed an of is window her out view the means which, beach the at lives Anna. half in it fold to has she, paper of piece a touches she when and everything of two owns She. symmetry of love obsessive her of because Anna herself renamed She.
