They played a marvelous game of tug-of-war.
Holding the rope tightly as they stared into each other's eyes.
He'd pull back causing her to lunge forward.
Determined not to lose her footing she did the same.
The intensity of their stares grew.
He raised one eyebrow.
She raised two.
They smiled at each other as if to say, "truce".
That's when they both let go of the rope.
They fell to the ground and laughed their asses off.
Glad to be rid of the extra weight.
