Once upon a time, a boy met a girl, she gave him her hand & he held it tight.

Together, they set off down the unknown path in front of them.

Sometimes they walked slowly; sometimes at a quicker pace. Sometimes they ran so fast it felt kind of like flying.

Whenever he lost his footing , she steadied him and whenever she tripped, he helped her back up.

Whenever she grew weary, he’d carry her.

Sometimes they didn’t know which direction to go, but though they would occasionally lose their way, they never lost each other.

They wandered contentedly and lived happily, forever and always side by side.
