Tyelre and Sequoyah were entering 8th grade when they met at summer camp in 2009. As Tyelre tells the story, he was crushing on Sequoyah, and she broke his heart after dissing him for a piece of gum (he has the Facebook messages to prove it).
Throughout high school and college, they remained friends, though life took them on separate paths. Fast-forward to November 2017. Sequoyah was home for Thanksgiving break, and after several failed attempts, she agreed to let him take her out. They went to TGI Friday's on a Sunday night and closed the bar after getting lost in conversation for hours.
