Hazel sat down on the couch in her apartment feeling sad and angry. Two days past valentines’ day and yet her boyfriend Wycliffe had said nothing! Not even a ‘happy valentines’s wish! At first, she had been worried that maybe he got into an accident or something bad happened to him considering the fact that his job requires a lot of traveling. But after learning from one of their mutual friends that evening that Wycliffe had been in town all along from Valentines’ day eve, the concern turned to anger!
All those messages she had left him asking him: how he is if he misses her if he could make back in town for valentines, telling him how much she misses him. All that and nothing! Not a single word from the guy! She decided to find something to distract herself from her trail of thoughts. She didn’t like what she was thinking about and all the doubts, accusations, and conclusions she was coming to. Scrolling through the movies on Netflix, she decided to watch the movie “Like Crazy”. She started crying halfway into the movie when Anna was denied entry back into the country.
Her heart bled out for her as she let it all out with the predicament she was facing.
“Of all the movies you had to choose, did it have to be that one?” Wycliffe asked after he couldn’t take it anymore.
He had entered the apartment quietly wanting to surprise his girlfriend only to find her crying. Hazel just looked up at him slowly with a confused expression.
“I thought…” She started as she wiped her tears.
“You thought what.” Wycliffe cut her off as he got closer to her.
“You don’t love me anymore? Or you were cheating on me?” She said as she looked directly into his eyes as they were inches away from each other.
“How can you ever think that Hazel! You have no idea just how much I love you. How much I miss you every moment I am away from you.” Wycliffe said with a hint of hurt in his voice.
Hazel was expressionless and confused. She wondered why he didn’t come to her if he loves her that much.
“You were in town and you didn’t tell me anything. It was Valentine’s Day!” She said, turning away from Wycliffe.
“Yes I was in town and as much as I wanted to be with you, I had to take care of something.”
“What could be so important for you to take care of on Valentine’s eve!” Hazel snapped back.
“You!” Wycliffe said gently as he turned her around to face him. “You are important Hazel.” He added as he enveloped her in a warm hug that she couldn’t resist. She had missed him so much.
“Now come on, we have somewhere to go.” He said as he let her go slowly and held her hand.
“Where to, valentine’s day is long gone!” Hazel said looking down.
“No, my dear,” Wycliffe said as he lifted her chin up. “I spent Valentine’s day organizing something special just for you. We can go anywhere you want too, and it won’t be crowded with couples everywhere. Every day is Valentine’s day when I am with you and since I am going to be with you forever, then my life is going to be Valentine’s day every day.”
“Are you…” Hazel started with excitement before Wycliffe closed her mouth with a gentle soft kiss that progressively turned into a demanding kiss.
