The Lovers

The Lovers
Partnerships, duality, union

The twins walk down the stairs as they hold each other’s hands.  The boy tells his sister a silly story as they descend from the second floor.  She smiles and giggles before asking for him to tell her another one.  At first he hems and haws in jest before giving in and creating another story on the spot to keep her amused.

As they go down the stairs, they leave red footprints on the white carpet.  It’s unfortunate that they got their shoes messy, but it could have been worse.  Their parents’ blood could have gotten on their nice clothing.
