“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.

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?

His eyes are full of tears, streaming, cascading even down his ever paling complexion.
