Ellen Bass’s Gate C22 is a story about two lovers who finally get to see each other. The man is waiting for her to get off the plane, and when she finally gets off she runs into his arms and they start to kiss. While there in the airport they are kissing, but they are so happy to see each other they don’t care who is around.
The part I like about the story is when she say neither of them or young, he has a beard and she is carrying extra pounds on her. It just let everyone know that it doesn’t matter how old you are you or what you look like anyone can find love at any age. The part I dislike was the one where she compare happiness to a mother giving birth to her baby. I just felt like she could have given a better comparison.
