David Abarbanel was the first love of Elie’s life. She met him while she was studying in Israel, at the age of eighteen.

David was manly, very handsome and forthright. He didn’t play games, said what he thought and impressed Elie from the first moment they met.

He was tall, with thick curly hair and the softest green eyes.

Although the relationship did not work out in the end, she always had a soft spot for him in her heart.
