"My life is over. I’m supposed to marry Merce!"

They may be only nine years old but they have a love story that will tug at the strings of your heart. Although little Merce and Mylee were only born in 2008, they've been besties for seven years -- and they were devastated when they had to say their goodbyes as Merce is moving out to another state with his family.

In a tear-jerking post that has gone viral on Twitter, Mylee's sister took a picture of the devastated pair -- who are playfully called boyfriend and girlfriend -- saying their goodbyes. According to Merce's dad Glen Meynardie, the two go "way back" and started holding hands at just two years old. The duo went to the same class at Merce's grandmother's dance school in LA in the US when they were just toddlers and have been inseparable ever since.

"I can remember them holding hands at dance competitions when they were two or three years old."

"They greet each other with a hug before class, and after each class, Merce walks her to the car and hugs her goodbye,” Glen recalls.

Although the two are not allowed to date just yet, they began referring to each other as boyfriend and girlfriend and the titles just stuck with their families.

So it's no wonder Mylee was convinced it was the end of the world when she heard the news. "When Mylee found out we were moving, she said, ‘My life is over. I’m supposed to marry Merce. How am I going to marry him if he is in California?'" Glen told Yahoo. Twitter users were heartbroken by the star-crossed youngsters' plight.
