They had acquired the magic potion, a potion to prevent them from ageing and enable them to live forever. "We will never wilt." He said joyfully, holding the bottle with the potion. He expressed his desire to drink it first. She agreed gleefully. As he sipped the potion, he felt it already working. He was feeling vibrant. He drank exact half from the bottle and looked at her playfully. She beamed and reached for the bottle. He dropped the bottle and spilled rest of the potion. "I am sorry." He said with a wicked smile. "It's time to part ways" He said still smiling wickedly. All of a sudden, a shiver ran through his body and he fell down to the ground. She stood bewildered. Neither of them knew that it was a potion to be taken as a couple, and not alone.
