VALENTINE'S DAY – EARLY MORNING
"It's a card, Ray."
"A Valentine's Day card."
"You've signed it."
"Aren't Valentine's cards meant to be anonymous?"
"Well, yes. But we live together, Benny."
"Nothing. I'm afraid I didn't buy you a card, Ray."
"No worries, Benny. It's sentimental nonsense anyway."
LATER THAT NIGHT
"I'm home, Benny."
Silence greeted him.
Frowning Ray went into their bedroom. On his pillow rested a Valentine card; it was beautifully and intricately carved in wood.
As his throat constricted, strong arms went around him. "I said I didn't buy you a card, Ray," Benny murmured.
Ray kissed him.
