Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day

I watched surreptitiously from the window as Jess, my beautiful friend, ran towards the man outside. She paused in front of him. I could see her mouth moving but couldn’t hear what she said. His eyes danced over her and my heart dipped, what had I been thinking?

Smiling he looked towards my house, I could see his gorgeous eyes sparkling in the sunlight. My heart melted. She handed him an envelope and returned to me.

He opened the card, smiled and walked away. My heart sank without trace.

Then the phone rang. My heart soared.

Happy Valentine’s day.
