Fanfic: To My Valentine

Chapter 3: A New Valentine

Micki wasn't sure about Valentine's day, anymore. But Ryan had insisted they celebrate Valentine's day, since they were a couple. He said that his Micki deserved a wonderful day of romance and devotion.

Micki felt that she'd heard it before, but she had finally agreed. He had excitedly told her that he would plan everything.

That had been January 9th, and she hadn't heard anything else about it. She thought he had lost interest, that maybe he had changed his mind, or maybe had just plain forgotten. And she'd been relieved, thinking that, on February 13th when she fell asleep in her bed, listening to Ryan playing he drums on his Walkman on the other side of the wall, just like she always did.

When she woke up the next morning, everything seemed normal. Until she opened her door, "Happy Valentine's Day," Ryan said, looking up at her from where he stood in front of the stove.

She walked over to him, "Happy Valentine's Day, Ryan. What are you making?"

He turned to kiss her lightly, his lips lingering against hers for a moment before he turned his attention back to the pan, "Cheese blintzes, for my Valentine. The coffee's fresh, Micki, if you want to pour a cup - breakfast will be ready in about twelve minutes."

She watched him for a minute, as he tended the crepe in the pan. Even when he performed the most menial of tasks, he seemed to be working to the beat of music only he could hear.

She poured a coffee, and sat at the table, watching him bemusedly.

That's when she noticed the gorgeous bouquet of wildflowers in the cream colored vase. They sat, unannounced, in the center of the table. A quiet, unassuming gift of beauty from Ryan. They were a flash of colors, each bloom more brilliant than the next.

"Oh, Ryan, they're beautiful!" Micki exclaimed, walking over to him and hugging him tightly. Suddenly, she was feeling a bit less apprehensive about the holiday, "Thank you."

He grinned, turning and holding her close, "Nothing's too good for my Micki. I just wish I had been able to find flowers as beautiful as you."

She smiled, blushing, and kissed him lightly, "Breakfast smells wonderful."

He nodded, still smiling, "Well, that's a good sign!"

Micki sat back down and the two of them enjoyed a relaxed breakfast filled with laughter and lighthearted jokes. Micki couldn't remember ever having had such a wonderful Valentine's morning.

In fact, her fear of Valentine's monotony and unhappy expectations was starting to fade from her memory.

Finally, Ryan stood and started downstairs, cup of coffee in hand, "All right, I guess it's time to open up the shop."
