That day the earth shook under his feet and the clouds carried him away at the same time.
All his life, Boy had known that Girl was his friend, his companion, his partner in crime, his shoulder to lean on. Girl was the reason he was brave enough to ask for an extension on his curfew. “A few more minutes, mum!”
Life was perfect when Boy and Girl were together. They would laugh when people would say ‘A boy and a girl can never be just friends’. Fools. What did they know.
But, that day the earth shook under his feet and the clouds carried him away at the same time. Because, that day instead of his face smiling, his heart smiled when Girl turned and looked at him, her hair in the wind.
