Excerpt…

“So, do you want to tell me what’s on your mind?” he said.

“I’m just thinking that tomorrow night I’ll be coming here alone.” she said.

“Well, that’s just the way it is supposed to be.” he said.

They both stood there looking at their reflection in the stream as minutes passed by without a word being said by either one of them.

“Are you going to tell me what’s really on your mind or do I have to spend all night trying to read it?” he said after a pause.

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.

THE END.
