Alice and Bob have been separated for a long time; then, when they finally see each other again after the separation, a number of things can happen. They might rush towards each other, one may walk to the other in a daze, or one might come up behind the other and put a hand on their shoulder. Then they embrace, with one babbling about how much they missed the other while [[CoveredInKisses covering them in kisses]], or they share a long passionate kiss, or they kiss repeatedly. Either way, tears and laughter are sure to be plentiful, from them as well as from their friends and comrades. Is usually [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]].

In short, all the torment of their separation and its surrounding events is released in a shower of mixed emotions and sealed with a kiss.
