Enid & Scandia.
Enid grew up in the soul of Canberra - not a very bustling town for a girl with a heart for crowds. However every year when the Canberra Flower Show came to town, Enid was in the front of the queue, ahead of the flocks of elderly women who smelt exactly the same as the displays inside. Enid was mocked at school for her love of flowers, told only, "My grandma likes flowers," which was then accompanied with a face that she knew meant that company to the show was not an option. As she grew up, she also had petite petals painted all over her.
Later realising that this look was unpopular, she started to regret her decision and doubt her passion - but then she met Scandia. Always being mistaken for a boy, Scandia never befriended the girls her age. Scandia spent her lunches in the library with the librarian. Scandia's voluminous body repelled the boys and invited sneering humour through the grapevine.
Then one fateful day, the floral heart of Enid noticed Scandia waiting at the bus stop on the corner of Wilhemmena St and Candle Lane. It was then that these two lonesome ladies met and magic began. The two became an inseparable pair, and through their friendship, Scandia, once with the spirit of a mouse, exchanged her timidity for a voice. And Enid, whose over-trendiness had left her feeling dated, started being proud of her embellishments once more.
Enid and Scandia's friendship lead to the creation of the term 'juxtaposition', which is now a term widely used in literature studies. Bet you didn't realise that these were its origins. Etymology that!
