Claire can't wait to see her sweetheart's gift.
You Have My Heart
Claire beamed at the text as she sat in her car after a hard day at work,
Sweetheart, got something special for you. Come home ASAP. Love, Tyler
She was sure Tyler would ignore Valentine's Day since they had unpleasant words last night. Something special? What could it be? She started the car and pulled from the parking lot. A small silver sedan followed her.
While navigating through rush hour traffic, she continued wondering about the surprise Tyler had. Would it be the typical flowers and candy? Naw. Those aren't special at all. What could it be? She switched lanes preparing to hit her exit. The small sedan kept a decent distance behind her.
While sitting at a traffic light, she pulled out her phone and re-read the message. Sweetheart, got something special for you. Strange he would use 'got'. Normally his text were proper English. Oh well, he must be excited as she was. Her foot lay heavy on the gas until she spotted a patrol car coming in the opposite direction. A smile crossed her face as she closed in on her apartment. The sedan made sure to be inconspicuous as it followed.
She pulled into the mostly empty parking and shut off the car. As she exited the vehicle, she peered up at the second floor where she and Tyler lived and shrugged. No decorations on the door, but it didn't spoil her mood. She climbed the stairs while the sedan parked nearby.
She found the door unlocked. Strange. Is he inside? On the dining room table sat a small box with a red ribbon and card which read
You have my heart, Tyler.
She snapped the ribbon and opened the box then shrieked at the sight of a human heart and Tyler's ring finger inside.
