Love is a sacred thing yet also a terrible demon Without love we cant survive When people give one another love it gives them strength and confidence in themselves Of Love and Other Demons by Gabriel Garcia Marquez is about a twelve-year-old girl Sierva Maria who has the absence of love She is bitten by a dog and is thought to be possessed She is sent to a convent where Father Cayetano is her exorcist The entire novel leads up to the forbidden love between Maria and Father Cayetano Delaura For the first time Maria experiences love the most terrible demon of all She finally knows how it feels to be loved and love someone else There love for each other is so immense that they cant breathe without each other Maria finally loves someone so much that she cant live without Father Cayetano Love is the most terrible demon of all because it brings two people so close to each other that they cant live without each other Father Cayetano would run to the convent just to see Sierva Maria He would reach the cell grasping for breath soaked by the perpetual rains and she would wait for him with so much longing that only his smile allowed her to breathe again 126 He would reach there out of breath from excitement of seeing her again Maria never knew there was such a thing as love and had never been loved before so this was a sensational feeling for her It was so strong that she couldnt let go of it Just seeing Father Cayetanos smile made her breathe again They loved each other so much that they couldnt breathe without each other They depended on each other Sierva Maria felt like nothing without Father Cayetano This is what makes love the most terrible demon of all Maria only feels special when she is with Cayetano What about all the times shes not
