Plot:

Alfredo Salazar, a spinster over thirty is engaged to Esperanza for quite three years and everyone takes it for granted that he will finally marry Esperanza. But although he is ashamed to admit it, the intensity of his enthusiasm for Esperanza has gone and he is attracted to Julia. However, he is aware that all his loved ones would criticize of his failure to honor his understanding with Esperanza, so he decided to marry Esperanza. Then, years later, he goes on a business trip to the town where Julia lives and he goes to visit Julia, whom he has never forgotten. He is surprised to find that he no longer feels attracted to her and he compares the memory of his love for her to dead stars, whose shine is still visible from earth for years after they are gone.

Point of view:
Third-person omniscient, the narrator can — and does — jump into the minds of many different characters. The narrator will tell us how each character is thinking and feeling, and will explain events according to how each character would interpret them.
