It’s very cliché, and I know I’m a bit late for my Valentine’s day post, but I honestly ship the two characters in this.
They work at an office , apparent by the cubicle mentioned, and this girl has been receiving notes and flowers anonymously for a while now. She and this guy have discussed briefly who it might be from time to time, and she’s expressed hope and annoyance and interest and all kinds of emotions since it first started—and the whole time, it was him. How do you think she feels? She’s probably exasperated. Irritated. Slightly angry. But she’d also feel relieved. I mean, she’s been receiving this stuff for a while now, and it could’ve been anyone . She didn’t know who it was, and now she does, and it’s someone she knows. Tbh, it’s better than if it was some random guy she only spoke to once. Mysterious or not, that’d still be creepy.
Annoyingly enough, this guy had the audacity to send her flowers and then act like he had nothing to do with it. Every single time. For months. And call it lying if you want, but when she’d ask why they might be sending flowers, he’d ask himself the same question. And when he answered, “I don’t know,” he was telling the truth. He didn’t know why he was doing this. He told himself he should stop and just tell her multiple times, but those bouquets have helped her get through the thick and thin of things. They’d cheer her up when she was upset, calm her down when she was angry, and give her something to daydream about when things got slow at work. Telling her after all that just seemed like it would be stealing that away from her. Admittedly, he let it get too far, but he was kind of happy he did in the end. And yes, she might know it’s him now, but he’ll still send her flowers every day just to see that smile on her face.
I just came up with this rn. I tend to come up with these things on the spot. I snap a picture of something, write a little snippet to go with it, and come up with a story behind it in the caption. It’s a frequent writing exercise. An enjoyable one, at that. They also provide story ideas for me to archive and use later in my books if I so please.
