The first time I received Roses from him, I thought it was charming. The doorbell rang. I wasn't expecting anything and the delivery man handed me a long narrow box that I knew meant flowers.

The next day, the doorbell rang again. What could it be? There was another long narrow box. Another dozen roses. "You are beautiful, inside and out." Slightly less charming than the day before, but still charming. I pulled out my step-ladder and climbed to reach the other vase that I kept tucked away on the highest shelf. It looked lovely on the sideboard.
