There was once two pebbles among many other pebbles, and these were just your average stones. Yet to each other, they were dazzling jewels. These pebbles occasionally got angry with each other, but no matter, for they were in love. Alas, one day the older pebble decided that no longer did they want to be with the smaller pebble, and so he allowed himself to be carried away downstream. The smaller pebble watched her gem float away, and went back to being a boring pebble among other gemstones.
You could say that the one left behind was hurt more than they would be being stoned.
To death. Stoned to death.
Not by the drug.
