Everyday Romance - Romantic Story: A Special Valentine's Night
"My husband isn't the most romantic guy in the world
but I know he tries. This year for Valentine's Day, he
surprised me with an early present.
With all the lay-offs in our office, those of us who are
left end up working longer hours than we should. I feel
guilty for always having to work late since I know my
husband misses the time we have together. I do my best
to get home at a reasonable hour but one night we ran
really late at the office, and I felt awful for coming
home so late.
When I came in, the apartment was quiet and dark. I didn't
know if my husband had gone out or gone to bed, or if he
was upset. I tiptoed in and when I got around the corner,
I saw my dear hubby waiting for me in the dining room,
which was aglow in candlelight. There was a big beautiful
bouquet of lilies (my favourite flower), and he had kept
dinner (take-out from my favourite restaurant) warm in
the oven. A small wrapped present sat next to my dinner
It was all so perfect. My husband greeted me with a warm
hug and a kiss and I was near tears. After a long day at
work, I was worried he would be upset but instead he
created a special evening just for us. I am so lucky to
have such an understanding husband.
