The coincidence that results in love involves a transformation when two entities suddenly see each other completely. The glow (see "glow"), which may have started as an ember, becomes very powerful. This is often scary, and does not always lead to quick results if one or both are not ready for it.
Jim and Pam were two ordinary people who worked for the same unremarkable company for years in the thickness of their glow before anything happened between them. Placed in proximity to each other, the two found solace in one another, bringing out eachother’s strengths. This love grew despite a repressed situation. The people may look different, the environment may change, but this is often how it happens.
