Tom Barlow and Virginia Thompson had a forbidden love that would be the envy of any couple. Tom and Virginia would sneak out of their houses and meet at their favorite place to gaze at the stars and share an evening of passion. Their secret place to rendezvous was this old wooden bridge known as the Old Mill Bridge that was in the middle of nowhere. It was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop. Any passionate noises that came from both of them would go unnoticed. Not many of the town’s people would travel down to the Old Mill Bridge because the bridge was deemed unsafe and could collapse at any time. There was a sign next to the bridge that read "Beware Not Safe for Vehicle Crossing."
Tom and Virginia were so in love with each other. They both knew there love was a forbidden love. In the back of their minds, they knew if their secret got out they would be dead. But their love was way too strong to let go. They didn't have to worry about getting caught because this would be the last time they would get to share a passionate kiss together.
Old Walt Williams was the town drunk and just happened to be traveling down the road where the Old Mill Bridge was.
Tom asked Virginia to walk across the bridge with him. Virginia said, "Tom, I'm not sure that's a good idea you know what the sign says."
"Virginia, are you chicken, laughed Tom."
