Victoria and Mark met in Pre-K. Back then they called it nursery school. Mark was into his guns (any stick in the vague shape of an L would do) and super hero dramas. Victoria loved dodge ball and pretend house. Later, in high school, Victoria was tight with the cheerleaders. Though her bum shoulder kept her off the team, Victoria dated quarterbacks in the fall, basketball stars in the winter and power hitters in the spring. Mark dated the same girl and was certain when he carved their initials into the bark of the beech tree that it was forever.
