Character traits Edit

At the core of Mr Curtis’s affection for you is his sense of your compassionate and forgiving nature.

In return, you know without a doubt that he will always be loyal and devoted to you, and only you.

Mr Curtis continues to admire your unceasing sense of wit. You are often found to be exchanging quips, though in the most endearing manner. Occasionally, you make a remark so amusing that Mr Curtis fills the room with the rich, deep timbre of his laughter.
