At first they are together nearly constantly. They walk about and nod at their friends and see to it that most of the time they are grinning.

Time passes, and they are less and less in each other’s presence. He’s somewhat of a bore, she says about him. She isn’t very pretty, he says about her.

After another year they no longer speak to one another. The woman now has another man whom she walks about with and nods at friends with and sees to it that while they are together they are mostly grinning. He thinks of her now and the time they spent together and then thinks to himself that she was rather pretty after all.
