The attraction between the two becomes increasingly evident, almost undeniable when Darius retitles his poem to "A Blues For Nina", thus making his intentions for Nina abundantly clear. They eventually go out and end up having sex on the first date. Confusion ensues between the two as Darius doesn't want to confront his true feelings for Nina, while she's not completely sure that she's no longer in love with her ex boyfriend.
Best part of story, including ending: Didn't like it or hate it. Just typical love story with the two participants having to deal with their personal feelings in order be together.

Best scene in story: When Darius changes the title of his poem to "A Blues For Nina".

Opinion about the main character: I liked that he was a poet. I really respect the art of poetry.
