As Time Goes By

When Paul moved in next door to Emekie they became instant friends and were never seen apart. They shared a first kiss when they were twelve, but Paul moved away at the beginning of high school and they lost touch not long after. Eventually – thanks to technology – they reconnected and upon meeting face to face for the first time in over a decade, shared another kiss. In the preceding months of conversations they had each confessed feelings for one another, and an attraction they discovered was still there. They had changed but still shared interests and passions, and Paul still cackled at Emek’s jokes. They grew old together, and even though they never got married or had kids, they were beloved by their neighbors, especially the children – and not just because they gave out the best/most candy on Halloween.
