“Come sit closer, next to me, and look out at the city below. Isn’t it beautiful? The tiny lights of a thousand lives all twinkling below. Mind your grip- though. You wouldn’t want to fall, so come. Sit with me. In fact, while we are admiring the skyline, let me tell you a story. It’s about a boy and a girl who meet and fall in love and generally cause each other completely inexplicable amounts of happiness. They get engaged and exchange undeniable vows of love. One perfect day. They live Happily Ever After, until one day, when she tells him she’s leaving him. Real lifes not like that – happy ever afters, is it? She picks up her bags and starts to walk out on him and he can’t believe his eyes. He just stands on the stairwell. His eyes are full of tears, streaming, cascading even down his ever paling complexion.
