What if the Unicorn was standing beside you the whole time?
[that was always my favorite ‘twist’ in films/stories… when the quiet nebbish companion to the hero is suddenly seen for who she really is, and they have a passionate kiss, and then [Cue Credits].
“Why, it was you the whole time!”
Usually the nebbish sidekick is the screenplay author writing herself/himself in and gives a nice ‘twist’ at the end that honestly, never gets old: The true companion who stayed by their side faithfully the whole time, while he hero went off on adventures for something else.
Does this happen in reality? I dunno. But Unicorns are real in any case.
