and they both lived happily ever after… or did they?

They are in Grade 2,

Best friends.

The first and final dance on Titanic’s song.

Its compulsory. Partners to be chosen by the instructor.

Alas! This dance was not meant to be his.

How he felt, hard to remember but rather easy to imagine.

‘The day’ arrives

He decides to play pirates with a friend instead.

She, you ask? Maybe she danced with someone or maybe not. he will probably never know.

End of Grade 3, he transfers to a different school.

12 years later, he is informed from reliable sources that she is now married.

How he feels today… well, that is for him to know and for you to imagine and then feel with him.

As for the question in the subject of the post, not so sure about the ‘both’ part.
