Tim was a boy from Will's world. When Mary Malone was twelve, she went to a friend's birthday. Here, she met Tim who, unlike most of the other boys, asked her to dance together. Later, he gently placed a piece of marzipan in her mouth from a piece of cake, and the taste would always remind her of this moment when she fell in love for the first time. Soon after, they shared their first kiss.
