VALENTINE'S DAY

RACHEL,

ROSES ARE RED . . . NERF DARTS ARE BLUE . . . THE SOUR PATCH KIDS ARE MINE . . . AND SO ARE YOU!

I KNOW, I KNOW. YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY IT. BUT, STILL, LET'S TALK ABOUT IT.

THAT WAS THE BEST RHYME YOU'VE EVER HEARD? I KNOW, I'VE BEEN KNOWN TO THROW OUT SOME PRETTY SICK RHYMES.

YOU FELT THE LOVE? YOU SHOULD'VE, IT WAS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

IT MADE YOU GO, "AWW" AND WANT TO COOK ME PANCAKES? WELL YOU SHOULD'VE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT TEN MINUTES AGO, BECAUSE THEY'RE PROBABLY GETTING CLOSE TO DONE NOW.

YOU GOT CHOKED UP? NOW YOU'RE JUST GETTING RIDICULOUS, IT'S A DAMN POEM ABOUT CANDY AND KIDS TOYS.

JOKING ASIDE, I LOVE YOU. YOU LOOKED SO BEAUTIFUL THIS MORNING, I WANTED NOTHING MORE THAN TO STAY IN BED WITH YOU FOR HOURS. THE ONLY WAY I WAS ABLE TO PULL MYSELF FROM OUR BED AND AWAY FROM YOU WAS BECAUSE I HAD THIS WHOLE DAY PLANNED OUT FOR YOU AND I KNEW I HAD TO GET STARTED.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU DO TO ME, RACHEL MASTERS, AND I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE FINALLY MY WIFE.

NOW GET UP AND COME FIND ME, BABE, WE HAVE A BIG DAY AHEAD OF US. PANCAKES ARE PROBABLY DONE, AND IF I'VE DONE THEM CORRECTLY, THEY'RE IN THE SHAPE OF HEARTS AND NOT MICKEY MOUSE. I SHOULD WARN YOU NOW, I HAVE TWO NERF GUNS NEXT TO ME JUST WAITING FOR YOU TO ROUND THE CORNER. I HOPE FOR YOUR SAKE YOU FOUND THE ONES I STASHED FOR YOU, OR ELSE THIS WAR IS GOING TO BE OVER BEFORE IT CAN BEGIN.

SORRY FOR THE NERF DART STUCK TO YOUR FOREHEAD.

. . . NO, I'M NOT.

I LOVE YOU, SOUR PATCH. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY.

KASH

THERE IS FREEDOM WAITING FOR YOU,
ON THE BREEZES OF THE SKY,

AND YOU ASK "what if i fall?"

OH BUT MY DARLING,

what if you fly?
