It’s unclear whether "love" is the right word to use in "Spring in Fialta." The story focuses on the adulterous "relationship" between two married people, so the feelings are a bit ambiguous.

Being happy, even with a marriage and family, is never enough, since there’s that persistent feeling of "what if?" that accompanies even the briefest of chance encounters.
