On our first date, we found a fountain in the middle of New York City.
How lucky we were.
Tossed our coins in, made wishes. I wished for happiness.
Something even more wonderful happened.
We two individuals became us. Together.
Partners. Outliers. Player One and Player Two.
That was almost ten years ago.
We have shared laughter and tears and smiles.
Forged adventures in the mundane.
Made love in thunderstorms.
A comfortable kind of affection, like soft clouds to land on.
All from two characters in a story crossing paths at the right place, right time.
How lucky we are.
With Valentine’s day coming up, I wanted to write about love. Call me a hopeless romantic, or a sap, either one. Inspired by my wonderful boyfriend, Michael and our relationship. He has know idea I’m doing this (Surprise honey!). We will be spending the weekend ordering takeout and having a movie night at home. Sounds perfect to me.
How are you spending Valentine’s Day? Lemme know in the comments. I’m genuinely curious, what with a pandemic and all.
Stay safe and keep writing!
Love, Lady Jabberwocky
