As 29th February approaches (is it traditional across The Pond, also, for women to propose on that day?), a story of a different love.
A Very Modern Romance, by Gordon Lawrie
Growing up just two doors apart, Chris and Lee were inseparable from Terry and Jo, two siblings aged almost the exact same. The parents got on, too. The kids frequently slept, were fed, and were even sometimes punished together.
Later, they went their separate ways, of course, but as family occasions summoned them home, friendships were rekindled. Eventually that became love, and finally a date was set for a double marriage.
In fact, the ceremony nearly didn’t happen: the celebrant refused. Fortunately, two quick changes of clothing and several glasses of champagne later, he was in no position to notice.
