There was no doubt that Ashleigh and Peter were in love. They were inseparable (some said “insufferable”) at school. They walked hand in hand. They were constantly together. So much so, that when someone in class talked about The Love Birds everyone knew it was Ashleigh and Peter.
It was inevitable that, when it came to the annual senior school formal, Ashleigh and Peter would go together.
Not so. Gay couples were not permitted to dance at the school formal.
