He was still in so many ways the boy she had once loved.
He wasn't the young man who had once loved her.
Mom was the kind of woman who only loved once.
But mind that somebody once loved each and every one of them.
Here before him was his brother, whom he had once loved as no other.
Some people loved only once, and it appeared she was one of them.
No wonder I once loved him, if he always looked at me like that.
You're wrong, this is not the woman I once loved.
He was one of those who are damned to love once.
The town that he had once loved most of all places in this world.
