*** EXCERPT ***
On Saturday, having spent Friday night apart, they agreed to rendezvous at her apartment at 10am. She had forgotten all about the conversation, the week being hectic enough without his antics. So when she answered her door at 10am, she was surprised and delighted to find a giant bouquet of balloons standing there.
"Hey, what's up?" came Garrett's voice from behind, as if nothing was out of the ordinary. She adopted a straight face, holding the door open.
"C'mon in," she replied, and he and the giant balloon bouquet stepped in, awkwardly. Once he had discarded his shoes and coat, he plopped himself on the couch, letting the balloons float to the top of her ceiling. Standing, the strings hung in her face, and so she ducked under them, sitting beside him.
"What's all this for?"
"Well..." his grin was mischievous and his eyes were sparkling. He was clearly having a good day today, with colour in his cheeks and a spring in his step. He reached up, pulling down a red balloon and shook it. It rattled, something inside was bouncing around. "I was thinking about all the awesome things you do for me. It always kind of starts like a balloon, really small, and then the situation gets bigger and bigger until it explodes. But in the midst of that chaos, that explosion, there you are, with something awesome, to fix it." Reaching into his pocket, he pulled out a box of safety pins. Opening the lid, he extracted one and unpinned it.
Watching, fascinated by what he could possibly come up with next, Sephora covered her ears and holding the balloon away from her face, he popped it.
Red latex exploded everywhere, and just as he had hoped, a gift fell into her lap...
