Ambiance – love on line 12.

Her name is Leyin. I am Julien. For  6 years we were together until she left me, 7 weeks ago. If you will allow me, I will share this story of love and passion with you, a piece a day, for as long as my faith keeps up or  until she comes back to this line 12, which she takes regularly. My wish? To touch her, move her and at the same time, bring some beauty to this world of the Paris metro.

For this Valentine weekend ambiance, I want to share this Paris metro love story with you.

Chéri called me last week one day, early morning, from Paris. “I miss you and I just quickly want to tell you how much I love you. Later, during  the weekend I found out what stirred his emotions on that early morning. He found a letter on his seat on the metro, line 12, the one he takes to work every day. It is a love letter from Julien to his lost love Leyin. It is written with passion and sadness and a hope that she’ll take line 12 again, find his words of love dedicated to her and be so touched by it that she returns to him. He ends his letter with a poem and a request that the letter not be destroyed, but left on the seat where you found it, as it is more than just a letter…it is a symbol of love.

So…I know many will immediately think this is a hoax, scam…or a joke…or anything else, except honest and real. Maybe it isn’t real. Maybe it is a joke. Or a scam. But then, in my opinion, it is a positive one. One that leaves you with a smile and a twinkle in the eye…a dream…. and one that has your husband of 30 years  call you early morning to quickly tell you that he loves you. THAT is honest and real.

Have a passionate Valentine weekend!

from the hopeless romantic!

“Hello,

I am the author of the papers for Leyin on line 12.
It’s not a hoax or something like that.
It’s real, it’s our story, and I hope she will come back.

It’s funny. You’re the second english spoken people who think it could be not real.
I’ve received reactions on my mail (darling_jf@yahoo.fr), and all reactions in french don’t enven think about a hoax, joke… For french people, it sounds like it is , a romantic way to find again my love.

The paper you show is the number 7. I finished the week on friday with the number 11.

Thank you very much for your interest. With many good vibrations, I think we (leyin and me) will be soon together.

Sorry for my english.

  1. Oh Ronelle your Chéri touched me that he called you..and what a treasure to find !

    The story is in effect bittersweet and reminds me very much of an author my maman loved..as she had one of his books: Paul Géraldy~ Toi et Moi.

    Thank you for this.

  2. I may steal this for a short play. I just touched my heart and head at the same time. And already spurred one person into the perfect phone call.

  4. It reminds me of this:

    ” I do not know you. You do not know me. But I have seen you, every day, at this bus stop. I would like to buy you coffee at [ a cafe beside the bus stop]. If you agree, please open your rainbow umbrella.”

    A note pinned to the time table of a London bus, many years ago. Not for me, but I always hoped Miss Rainbow Umbrella and the author of the note had a happy meeting…

  7. I am sure that I absolutely love this letter. (even though I cannot read most of it)
    That is very romantic and a bit sad. I DO believe that it is a real letter from a real person to his /her love.
    Of course, we humans always want a happy ending so please let us know what happens if you can.

  8. I am so happy that you have shared this wonderful story, Ronelle, and to have the author find your post and reply to claim and credit his letter is touching. Sweet romance!

    My husband proposed to me 38 years ago on the eve of Valentine’s Day :-) and we are still together.
