We first met in high school at East in 2017 when Skyler was a junior and Briella was a freshman. Skyler later transferred, and they lost contact. Then, in 2020 Briella found him on Facebook and added him. They then reconnected, talking as they had in the past. Skyler had previously attended her softball games and cheered her on. However, after reconnecting, they once more fell out of touch. However, in the summer of2021, Because Briella's favorite movie was Tangled and her favorite scene was the floating lights, Briella asked Skyler if he wanted to go see them on September 11, 2021. Skyler responded, "Sure, why not," because Briella had been nagging him to come with her for a long time before he finally said yes. That night, everything changed for the better for the two of them.
