And to think back then, all I had were their TV appearances (delayed on MTV for me), their CD liner notes, which I loved to read and decipher their not-so-subtle messages for each other and mentions of each other in magazines. Let's not forget the sweeping declarations of 'saving themselves' for marriage and the matching retractions when they obviously couldn't stick to that.
And could I blame them? They were young. They were hot. They were both at the top of their games! How could anything go wrong?! But of course they did end. And it wasn't a very pretty end. I'm still not sure why they ended (was it because of Wade? did anyone cheat?) But it seemed as if it only did one of them good. To say I was devastated would be an understatement. Sometimes, I think 'what if' they didn't break up? But they were both so young and it was inevitable. It's no use thinking of the what ifs now. And all I'm left with is my retro-active shipping of them.
