Leif & Nikko - Engaged June 8, 1995
Leif met Nikko at the SCA event, Lilies War. I believe it was in June 1993 or 1994. Nikko lived in Wichita, and they might not have gotten together if she hadn't moved to Manhattan, Kansas, where they ended up working together at the Aladdin's Castle video game parlor in the mall.
When they met, Leif had the long, long hair he had as a high school senior, but by the time of their engagement, he cut it because Aladdin's Castle had been purchased by a Japanese firm and they did not approve of long hair.
They made a very handsome couple and you could see the vitality and attraction, the vivaciousness, in their eyes.
They were engaged on June 8, 1995. This photo was taken in our yard in Manhattan, Kansas. Leif was 20 years old, and Nikko was 19. She would be 20 on October 8, four months later.
