Hugo Knows Best
The Long of It
In September 2014, University of Leicester’s archeologists announced the discovery of skeletons holding hands. The find was made amongst the ruins of the Chapel of St. Morrell in England’s Leicestershire County.
…they found among all those hideous carcasses two skeletons, one of which held the other in its embrace. One of these skeletons, which was that of a woman, still had a few strips of a garment which had once been white, and around her neck was to be seen a string of adrézarach beads with a little silk bag ornamented with green glass, which was open and empty. These objects were of so little value that the executioner had probably not cared for them. The other, which held this one in a close embrace, was the skeleton of a man. It was noticed that his spinal column was crooked, his head seated on his shoulder blades, and that one leg was shorter than the other. Moreover, there was no fracture of the vertebrae at the nape of the neck, and it was evident that he had not been hanged. Hence, the man to whom it had belonged had come thither and had died there. When they tried to detach the skeleton which he held in his embrace, he fell to dust.

A supernatural explanation…
The male skeleton looks as though his mouth is open and laughing
This couple—who were very, very, very much in love—was abducted by a lonely alien space gypsy. They travel with him to other universes, other worlds, and multiple dimensions ridding galaxies of aggressive, invading sky lords. The couple—after many light years—grew weary (or were injured) and asked to be returned to Earth. The space gypsy buried them together to rest-in-peace until discovery. At which time, they will rejoin the space gypsy for many more galactic adventures. (The above paragraph is ©)
Okay. Yes, I agree. There is probably a lovey-dovey plausible explanation—like romance, flowers and chocolate type of explanation—but really, what’s the fun in that?
