Light And Shade Challenge: "Prom Night"

[The Light And Shade Challenge continues with the quote "all we ever see of stars are their old photographs," from the great Alan Moore. This story is called "Prom Night"]

They are walking. The camera is off center, so it looks like they are looking at someone, towards someone, who is to the camera's left. He is smiling. He knows how lucky he is. She is smiling too, but secretly, shyly, like she knows a secret. Neither of them know of the heartache to come.

They are walking, hand in hand, wearing rented clothes, into the night, together. They couldn't possibly guess what is to come. They think they know what forever means.
