Here on the lake, a skating party is being held in honour of Nathan and his wife-to-be Eunice. Almost the whole town shows up for the celebration.
You've got no worries on a load of hay
It was a dark, cloudy night in November. It was cold, but no snow, and all the skaters became shapeless and unidentifiable in the darkness.
I wish we could just skate away, further and further and the lake would get longer and longer and we would never come to the end.
Meet Nathan, Delia and Eunice. Now although the party was being held for Nathan and Eunice, Nathan and Delia had quite the history together themselves.
Nathan first met Delia when he and Harold went to visit Dobson Sykes with the idea of looking over other girls. It was a warm July afternoon, and Nathan instantly fell in love.
The two skated away from the party alone, wishing they could skate away together forever. And while although the feelings were mutual between the two, Nathan knew that the relationship would just never work.
Nathan had Eunice and Delia had Dobson, and however heartbreaking it may be the two knew that they just couldn't be together.
