Too Good To Be True?
I liked this story about two young people in Russia finding each other in a truly unbelievable way. The guy loses his fiancé in a car crash, decides to commit suicide off a bridge, and finds a young woman about to jump herself. She had been thrown out by her parents for getting pregnant and was moments from ending her life. Andriej Ivanov talked her down and into his arms. Maria Petrova believes Andriej is her knight in shining armor. They are to be married soon. Now come on… you have to admit this is good stuff. The names seemed so familiar I did a quick Google search and turned up two very similar names: Maria Petrova & Alexei Tikhonov. They’re world champion figure skaters. It did strike me as possibly a Russian reporter deciding to do an ‘Enquirer’ type love story that the UK Sun picked up. I think today, I prefer to believe in Maria and Andriej. :)
