Not exactly sure WHO these people are, but i'm pretty sure why the two are so happy. The man went of somewhere, probably to war, swearing to his love that he'd return. When he didn't return for a long time, everyone presumed him dead. Then one day, while she was grieving, sitting in the garden( or I assume that's why the bench is there), he returned. And I do understand that the people's proportions are all wacked...sorry, i'm working on it.
