VALENTINE'S DAY EARLY MORNING

 

"It's a card, Ray."

 

"Yes, Benny."

 

"A Valentine's Day card."

 

"Yes, Benny."

 

"You've signed it."

 

"So?"

 

"Aren't Valentine's cards meant to be anonymous?"

 

"Well, yes. But we live together, Benny."

 

"Ah."

 

"Ah, what?"

 

"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.
