Not-So-Funny Valentine

“Can you get the mail, dear?'

Claire trembled, preparing for mortification like every other year.

Wait a sec. Under the pile of brown envelopes, a slash of vibrant red peeked out.

She read the name.

Miss C Shelly.

It was for her!

She pulled out an outrageous pink card plastered with red hearts. Her eyes skimmed over the verse to the signature.

'Your Secret Admirer.' And a huge question mark.

For a precious moment, she allowed herself to imagine the boy who might have sent her first valentine.

A glance at the familiar handwriting confirmed the worst: her mother’s handiwork.
