A/N: This one’s a double drabble.

It was Valentine’s Day, and love was definitely in the air; everywhere Dee looked there were couples holding hands and sharing significant looks. Guys hurried along the sidewalks carrying huge bouquets, mostly of red roses, and boxes of expensive chocolates, while heart-shaped balloons, all red and pink and silver, bobbed among the crowds. He’d lost count of the number of teddy bears he’d seen peeping out of bags and pockets, or tucked under arms. It was depressing.

Dee wanted to be one of the guys hurrying home to his loved one, but Ryo was in San Francisco due to a family emergency and not due back until late tomorrow. It sucked.

Arriving home, he trudged wearily up the stairs. He knew he and Ryo could celebrate some other day, but it wouldn’t be the same. Entering his apartment, he was startled to find lit candles everywhere and the delicious aroma of steaks cooking. A familiar figure appeared from the kitchen.


Dee could scarcely believe his eyes. “Ryo!”

“Happy Valentine’s Day, Dee. I came home a day early. Couldn’t bear to be away from you today of all days.”

Dee pulled him close. “Happy Valentine’s Day, babe.”

Everything was perfect.

The End


I don't think so either. I'd be surrounded by strangers, I wouldn't feel safe going outside, she might as well stick me in a prison. Most days I can't go out anyway. How does she expect me to find somewhere else and move? Moving house is one of the most stressful things anyone can do, and stress makes all my health problems a hundred times worse. I just don;t understand why some people just have to take all the time. I don't understand greed. I haven't got a lot, never have had, but I make do. My sister has been getting her house re-carpeted - my carpets were cheap to start with and the one in my bedroom is threadbare from when the pipes burst a few years ago, but I don't complain.
I don't understand it, either. Particularly when it's someone your generation and older; your generation wasn't brought up to be all about the concept of Me Me Me. Mine is where Western society began to fall apart. I wasn't personally taught that I was the center of the universe, but it seems that most people my age and younger were. So if your sister were my age, I'd almost understand. It would still suck.
She's three years older than me, and she works as an occupational therapist, so she should be more understanding, but I'm just her sister, so I guess she just doesn't consider me important. I mean, she didn't even phone me at Christmas the year mum died, even though she knew I'd be on my own all Christmas day for the first time ever. Same thing this year - nobody phoned, nobody visited, I was completely alone.
Damn it! That's horrible! My God, that's unfair. That's just inexcusable. *hugggggg*
Yean. We were never all that close growing up, but now I feel like I'm just surplus to requirements. I don't feel like I have any family anymore. All the people who actually cared are gone. After the way she spoke to me the last time I phoned her, I'm just not going to bother calling her anymore.
