she wasn’t the one to celebrate valentine’s day outside of eating chocolate, which was done usually by herself on her couch. turning to look at steve from the side, verbal communication that expressed any type of affection was not her thing. in fact, it was like pulling teeth. she thought that maybe it was just like any other day for him, mostly because that’s how people in their line of work viewed it.
reaching up, she gave him a small kiss on his cheek before saying, “I hope it’s easier for you to find love than it is for me.”
