If there was a day you hated more than Thanksgiving or your Birthday, it was Christmas. The whole Christmas season was miserable, especially when you were with your family. Your family life wasn’t the best(but certainly not the worst) and once you left, you left. It had been years since you had seen them and intended to keep it that way, dropping a line on the important days. 

Your family now consisted of your best friend Emily, her boyfriend Jason, and their daughter Isabelle. Most days were great except for when they were both stumbling drunk and horny, those were the days when you scooped up Isabelle and found anywhere to be but the house. Today was one of those days.

anonymous asked:

So in your fic Silent Song (which I love btw) why don't you have Obi-Wan know sign language? Is an explanation in the fic somewhere and I didn't catch it, or was it something you were gonna address later on?

Hey, Anon! Thanks for asking this, because I get questions about this every now and then by pm, and it’d be good to reply on tumblr so everyone here has a clearer picture of it. The absence of sign language is actually a very integral part of The Silent Song, because it portrays one of the greatest issues with the Galactic Republic (or at least in this AU GFFA that TSS is set in).

The absence of sign language is something that is both going to be addressed at a later date and something that is also already inherent in the general attitude in the Republic towards disabled people (not positive in the slightest).

In the Republic, Core people in charge of aid to the disabled are so used to things being available to aid people with disabilities (neural implants leading to vocoders, ear replacements, surgeries, artificial eyes etc.) that they phased out the most basic things (vocoders instead of sign language, guide droids instead of canes, etc.) that aid people with disabilites.

You see how in Jedi Apprentice canon, Tahl had a droid that guided her. It wasn’t like the droid in itself was bad - but everyone expected her to only depend on the droid. When she wanted to stretch out her senses and employ her Force-abilities for more independence, most people were too busy being terrified for her safety to understand that she didn’t like having the droid in the first place.

Now, let me be very clear. Technological and medical advancements are very, very good. But not when it is forced on someone and prevents the choice of the disabled person to select the mode of aid they wish to have.

Allow me to explain using the Zan Arbor Academy for Gifted Children.

The first thing that happens to Obi-Wan when he steps into class is this - the teacher snaps his fingers, rolls his eyes, and stuffs a vocoder into Obi-Wan’s hands. Now, it’s not that he shouldn’t, or can’t, use a vocoder. He can if he wishes to, but he didn’t, and then suddenly he was ostracised because everybody expected him to depend on that technology when he didn’t want to.

The Republic Core is the kind of place that has every medical and technological advancement possible, but has sacrificed the choice and preference of the people it serves for sheer efficiency, so to speak. The teacher looks at Obi-Wan and says, basically, Use this. Why should I have to read everything you want to say?

If sign language did exist, it would be: Or sign, for that matter?

The point is, because Obi-Wan didn’t want to use that technology, suddenly he doesn’t have anything else he can use. Because everyone expects him to use what was designed, because it “fixes” the “problem”.

The ZAAGC, if not the Republic, has serious issues with the way it treats disabled people. It not only causes problems for people like Obi-Wan who don’t want to use these things, but it also causes problems for people who can’t afford the technology.

It’s like a world where they force a blind person to put in artificial eyes, but if the person says no, there’s literally no other option available because there aren’t things such as canes anymore due to people not providing them.

So, does sign language exist in the Republic? Yes. Yes it does. It does in the outer regions, specific to cultures and societies in individual worlds away from the Core with all its technology and expectations, and wealth. As for whether the Republic ever had its own official, standardised sign language, that is something I address later on in the fic.

With the risk of spoiling too much, Qui-Gon realises he’s made a mistake.

So the absence of sign language is, in a way, one of the problems I see with a society technologically advanced but ONLY focusing on their technology and wealth.

I’ve rambled a bit but I hope this answers your questions!

Helpful Shopping Advice for Customers Updated Edition
  • Unpack your shopping basket
  • Don’t talk about religion, peoples sexual preference or politics
  • Don’t tell racist or sexist jokes
  • Wash your re-useable bags regularly
  • If you can’t fit a box of cereal in your “re-useable” bags dont bring them to the supermarket, theyre too small
  • Don’t yell at the staff
  • Don’t throw a tantrum like a 5 year old when you dont get your way
  • Don’t try to get someone fired because you didn’t get your way
  • If you dont want an item dont just stuff it anywhere, ESPECIALLY REFRIGERATED ITEMS either put it back or give it to the staff
  • Don’t eat or open anything unless you’ve paid for it
  • Don’t let your kids eat or open anything unless you’ve paid for it
  • Don’t let your kids climb the shelves or displays
  • Get off your fucking phone when the cashier is trying to serve you
  • Listen to what the staff are saying to you - like when to swipe your card, what the sale applies to ect.
  • READ the product ticket and sale signs, They tell you everything you need to know. Yes they can be confusing sometimes, ask the staff if you need help. Don’t throw a hissy fit at the register because you read the sign wrong.
  • Saying please and thank you won’t go astray. Manners are free. If you’re polite staff are 203% more likely to want to help you and go out of their way for you
  • Don’t expect the staff to read your mind, tell them what you want/need
  • If you’re having a bad day don’t take it out on the staff, if you’re in that much of a shitty mood do everyone a favour and stay home.
  • Standard plastic bags stores use to pack your items are not designed to be reused, don’t bring them back in to be used. If you want re-useable bags buy them.
  • Shopping trolleys and baskets are not rubbish bins
  • Shelves are not rubbish bins
  • Change rooms are not toilets
  • If an item doesnt scan it’s not free. Don’t make that joke. please.
  • Staff make mistakes, they are human
  • Show your ID when requested, don’t make a huge deal out of it. It’s the law and store policy, if you want service it’s required.
  • If you want to return an item BRING BOTH THE ITEM AND THE RECIEPT, most stores require a reciept for a return and they certainly aren’t going to give you a refund if you didn’t bring the item with you.
  • Don’t make an ass of yourself when they won’t refund an item due to policy or having no reciept.
  • Staff will get fired for not adhearing to policy, their job is more important than breaking the rules for you. If you have a genuine issue with the policy speak to the manager.
  • Don’t be an asshole.
  • Don’t go shopping if you’re sick, not only can you make other customers sick but you can make the staff sick. Many staff can not afford to have the time off work if they get sick, have consideration for how your actions affect others.
  • DO NOT LICK YOUR FINGERS before handing the cashier money or cards, not only is this disgusting its increadibly unhygienic.
  • Do not go to a store and expect the staff to be your personal shoppers for 20+ minutes, they have other work they need to do before the end of their shift and most can’t spend that much time with just one customer. HOWEVER if you have a disability and need genuine assistance doing your shopping and are unable to have a carer or family/ friend help you, call the store ahead of time as some stores can make arrangements to have a staff member assist you for a period of time.
  • Do not eat fruit or vegetables before you have paid for them. Almost all produce items are sold by weight and so alters the price. While the price may only be different by a few cents, but having many customers do it can put the sales out buy hundereds of dollars meaning the store will cut hours and a staff member will lose their shifts. It is very unhygeinic for the cashier to be handling a half eaten fruit, and this is also considered stealing, do you really want to be arrested over 35 cents?
  • Children under the age of 9 should be supervised at all times! I cannot tell you how many times we’ve caught unsupervised childeren wandering around the store, climbing shelves, eating the lollies and playing with the toys (in general destroying merchandise). If the child were to wander out of the store, be abducted or injure themselves you would be the first to complain. It is not the staff’s job to watch them, it is your responsibility and quite frankly bad parenting.
  • The staff are NOT babysitters, DO NOT leave your children with them.
  • Registers, counters and dining tables are NOT change tables, if your child needs a nappy/diaper change do it in the restrooms, also dispose of the nappy/diaper in the appropriate bin, don’t leave it around the store for staff to clean up.
  • Please don’t start to unpack your groceries while the customer ahead of you stil hasn’t finished unpacking theirs
  • USE THE DIVIDERS! Dividers are there so the cashier can distinguish between your purchase and another customers purchase, by not using one all you are doing is causing confusion and slowing things down.
  • Don’t leave the checkout before the cashier has finished counting your money or your card transaction has been approved. If something has gone wrong with the payment (i.e card declined or money given was short) not only will the cashier get in trouble but if you can’t be found you could be charged with theft.
  • If you’re planning on doing your shopping late in the day it is a good idea to call the store ahead of time to see what time they close DONT come to a store within 10 minutes of closing time. Just dont.
  • When it is announced that the store is closing within X minutes it means you have X minutes to have paid for your shopping and left the store, NOT that you have X minutes to keep shopping and then meander down to the checkout when you feel ready. I can’t speak for all stores but at mine i don’t get paid past closing time and if you think i am hanging around and working for free you are sorely mistaken.
  • If the store needs to be evacuated for whatever reason, do what you are told and leave the store.
  • Don’t be an asshole. (This is here twice because i cannot stress this point enough)
Things Every Customer in Retail Stores Should Know (Warning: This is long.)
  1. Learn to read. Signs, price tags, coupons, everything. Nothing makes you look stupider than holding up an item and asking for the price, and then the associate taking it and reading the price tag out loud to you. 
  2. If there is no discount marked, you don’t magically get one because you said the word “discount”. 
  3. The people working in the store do NOT make up the prices, there is no use complaining about them to us, if you want someone who is paid to listen to your whining, simply ask for or find the customer service number or keep it to yourself.
  4. We are ordered to greet you. If you do not need assistance, simply say so in a neutral manner. We probably greeted you in a neutral manner, so loudness/rudeness  in response to “Hello, can I help you?” is unnecessary. “Just looking” is also not an emotion. “How are you doing?” can be sufficiently answered with “Good.” We are humans, too. Unless maybe you’re not. Then I excuse your rudeness.
  5. “The customer is always right”  is the least true statement in the known universe. No one believes you over an employee about our policies. The customer is usually a dumbass.
  6. “Do you work here?” If we are doing work in the store or wearing some form of name tag/uniform, we work there. What civilian wanders into retail stores and starts working on a to-do list?
  7. We can hear you. We are not checkpoints in video games. Even if you are not speaking directly to us, we can hear you. 
  8. “Select items on sale” means select items are on sale. Not every item near the sign or in the store. Whatever is indicated as being on sale is on sale. Nothing else. 
  9. “Oh so is it free then?” If you bring something up the the counter that has no price/SKU number/barcode that item is not free, that item is a pain in the ass for me and you, but mostly me. I have to look it up now. Sit tight and shut up. You chose to bring this up here. Just knowing the price also does not help me, so don’t declare it like you’re being a big help by knowing the price.
  10. “How can that be that much?!?!” Did you not read any of the tags? Did you pick up these items willy-nilly because you liked them and think they’d all add up to ten dollars? All the numbers on the price tags add up when I scan them with the bippity boop and then tax is added. So yes, I made up that large sum and pulled it out of my ass to make the company more money, even though that does not benefit me directly and is illegal. 
  11. No, I can’t give you an employee discount. You don’t work here. Nor any other discount either, because the items you’ve chosen do not have a discount on them.
  12. Dressing rooms. Do you leave your room looking like this? Your house? You just fling clothes you don’t find suitable all over and leave hangers everywhere? Someone, a fellow human, has to pick this up and put it away. The least you can do is hang your 50 unwanted garments up and put them on the go-back rack provided. You picked them up in the first place. It’s thirty seconds.
  13. “I won’t be taking this.” If you don’t want an item, why did you pick it up and bring it to the register? Just put it back where you found it. No one made you pick it up.
  14. Exchange/Return policy. Individual store associates do not come up with these policies on our own or on the spot. They are company policies that someone getting paid a helluva lot more than us has developed. (See #3.)
  15. Closing time is the time we workers are supposed to lock the doors, clean up, and count the registers. If closing time is 9 pm, and you fly in a 8:55, we hate your stinking guts. “Whew, just made it!” No. You have five minutes to make your selections and check out and leave. We are scheduled for a certain time to a certain time. We are not at your disposal past closing time. Get. OUT.
  16. “I can find this at _______ for less!” Glad you know where the deals are. Hop to ‘em!
  17. Not your therapist. Purchase your items and move along. Especially if there are people behind you. Your dog just died? I’m real sorry, but that has no effect on your total or my workday. I don’t know you or your dog. Sorry not sorry.
  18. Dressing rooms #2. There are usually found near the sign that says “Fitting Rooms” or “Dressing Rooms”, and they are usually equipped with doors or curtains. They also usually contain mirrors. If I point them out and you meander right past them and then ask me again where there are, I will assume you are a moron and will check when you vacate them, expecting a mountain of unwanted items. (See #12.)
  19. This or that questions. “Receipt in the bag or with you? Return or exchange?” These are not yes or no questions. The word “or” means you have been presented at least two choices, pick one. “Yes” or “No” gives me no information on what you want.
  20. Cards. If it got declined multiple times, I’d say try a different form of payment. If we ask for an ID, it’s probably because you didn’t sign the card, or you specifically wrote “See ID”. Just following your orders, customer. Keeping you safe. Also, swiping it again because it did not go through the first time,will NOT charge it multiple times. I repeat, it did not go through.
  21. “I left _____ in the car.” Why did you come into the mall/store without any form of payment and then try to purchase things? This is why I’m probably doing a bad job of not looking at you like you are an idiot.
  22. Customer Service. We are humans. If you treat us like shit or act deathly stupid, don’t expect a rainbows and sunshine reaction or a bubbly preschool teacher to explain shit to you. Use that noggin and we’ll all get along. “Even retail workers can do this,” as I like to say.
  23. Leave your children at home if they’ll be just as unsupervised with you while you shop. Or if they’re just little shits. 
  24. “I’ll never shop here again!” Good. Bye. 
  25. No receipt? No, no cash refund for you. Store credit.
  26. Multiple transactions in one day. Gather ALL the shit you wanna buy before you come to the counter. Shopping while you’re bogged down with bags of what you just bought makes zero sense. If you have time to shop a second time, you have time to get all your crap before you approach the counter at all.
  27. Questions. If you ask me a question and then interrupt when I try to answer or don’t trust my answer, why did you ask to begin with? “Let me speak with your manager.” Ok, but my manager is going to tell you the same thing. Why would I lie?
  28. We have human lives just like you outside of our workplace. If we just clocked out or are just on break, we will not be able to help you. We are not on your time anymore. Find someone else. Do not try to grab my arm as I am leaving the store with my purse and jacket, I’m a civilian now. Fuck off.
  29. Your jokes are not funny. You are not funny. Captive audience does not equal willing audience. 
  30. Do not lie to me about how much cash you gave me. I am holding it in my hand and the computer tells me exactly how much change you get; just stuff it into your messy, overcrowded wallet and move along. 

Rant over.

Twelve Years Later

Genre: Angst, Fluff, Best Friend 

Summary: You and Sehun were both in an orphanage and you two were best friends. Sehun gets adopted by a rich family and leaves you behind. Twelve years later, you both meet again but this time, you hate Sehun for leaving and forgetting you.

Word Count: 3,603


“Do you pinky promise that we’re going to be best friends forever?” you asked innocently.

“Of course!”  

“But what if we get separated?”

Sehun looked at you with a face as serious as ever.

“Do you trust me ____?”

You didn’t even hesitate before nodding your head.

“If we ever get separated, I promise I’ll come and find you. We’ll run away together and we’ll work. Once we have enough money, we’ll start a family.”

Sehun was two years older than you were. Although he was only ten, it seems as if he knew exactly what he was talking about. Where are we going to run away to? How do you start a family? Though there were many things you didn’t understand, his eyes gave you reassurance. It soothed your silly little eight year old heart.

You smiled and stuck out your pinky finger.

“It’s not official until you seal the deal with a pinky promise.”

Sehun smiled and nodded his head.

“Now, it’s official.”

Everything was perfect and wonderful. You didn’t care if you didn’t have a family. You had Sehun. Sadly, beautiful moments always gets cut short in your life. In just a week, the smiles on your face disappeared. They were replaced with sleepless nights and endless streams of tears.

“Where’s Sehun?”

“Oh Sweetie… He’s not going to be here anymore…”

“Why not? Where did he go? I have to go find him!”

“Sweetie, he left with his new family… But don’t worry! Real soon you’ll have a real family too.”

Your heart pounded. You didn’t need a family. You need Sehun.  As you ran to the window, you watched the black car take away your best friend.

“Sehun! Sehun!” you screamed as you pounded the window.

“___, sweetie, you need to calm down.”

No matter who tried to comfort you, you refused to leave the window.

I’ll just wait for him here. He’ll be back. I know he will. He promised. He pinky promised, and he never broke a pinky promise before.

You waited and waited but you saw no sign of Sehun.

One.

Two.

Three.

Seven.

Fourteen.

Three-Hundred Sixty Five Days have passed but he never showed up.

Everyday you waited by the window, like a silly little fool.  

Even on the day you got adopted, you never gave up. That day, you remained by the window.

“____, it’s time to go.”

You looked through the window one last time before leaving. Of course he didn’t come stupid girl. As you left the orphanage, your faith in Sehun died. From that day on, you trusted no one. Even though you were only eight, you were old enough to understand that he lied to you. Nothing has hurt more than abandonment.

Perihelion

Pairing: Matt Murdock/Daredevil x Reader

Time: Any time before the finale works, really- though I like to think of it as set just before the series starts.

A/N: This was requested by an anon(here’s a link to the request: http://midnightinkdreams.tumblr.com/post/116391191811/the-other-day-i-came-across-this-prompt ). I was rather scared the reader would end up coming across like a stalker so I had to try and avoid that- I really hope I managed it. Also, it got way too long but I couldn't help it.

Summary/Preview: 

Minutes later, a figure dressed completely in black emerges from the room and you stop breathing for a bit as you recognize your savior- it is the man they call the devil of Hell’s Kitchen.

“___, are you alright?” your defender asks, moving towards you, and it is all you can do to give him a shaky nod in response.

Because in that moment, you feel the pieces of a puzzle that has been troubling your subconscious for days begin to come together. This man addresses you by name and speaks to you in a voice that is only too familiar.

“Matt?” You end up sounding incredulous, though you are fairly certain you already know the answer to your question.

Pairing: Luke Hemmings x Reader


Type: fluffy



Request: calumsenglishood- Hey love can u do a luke hemmings fluff based on the song obvious by westlife?? It’s kinda cute haha have a great day by the way.



Warning(s): none



A/N: very excited for this one! I tried to make it as fluffy as possible, and this whole imagine is in Luke’s POV. I hope you like it!! Sorry if it sucks:/


+++++++



“Oh my god Luke, not again with your corny pick up lines!” She face palms herself while giggling loudly. I watch her intently, smiling to myself at how beautiful she looks. Wait, in a friendly way! Yes that’s what I meant!



“Y/n, I thought you loved my corny pick up lines!!” I pout, coughing alittle at my small cover up, and slouching in my chair. We were in my room, watching Tv Shows on Netflix. Then we decided to just talk.



Right when I pout, I feel her come up behind me and wrap her arms around my neck, looking down at my face. Her h/c hair circling us like a curtain. I start to feel butterflies in my stomach but immediately push them a way, becoming nervous.



“I do love your corny pick up lines, Luke!” She smiles then sticks her tongue out, chuckling. She walks around to face me and sits on my lap with her legs dangling over the armrests.



“Not as much as you love me right y/n?” I grin at her, throwing a wink at her as well. I try to cover up my nervousness with witty charm, but she just scuffs and gets up, walking over to the bed and plops down once again.



“You wish, bread stick!” She pauses then starts to laugh hysterically at her poor try at rhyming.



“Wow, that didn’t even rhyme y/n!!“ I said looking away, disappointed she left my lap. But I still admired her laugh. Her laugh died down and now it was a comfortable silence.



Now that I think about it, I don’t know when and how my feelings for Y/n began, but I know one thing is that she is so oblivious about it.



Lately I’ve caught myself always being around her, and wanting to always make her laugh and smile with me. A lightbulb flashes in my head and I finally realized, I’ve always had a crush on Y/n.



She beautiful, kind, caring, intelligent, and sexy all in one. But she doesn’t even notice how I really feel.



I turn around in my chair and face her, smiling really big. “What’s up Luke, you look kinda creepy! What going on?” Y/n looks up at me from the bed, questionably while giggling.



“Nothing.” I say grinning laying on top of her. “Luke your heavy!!” She says, while trying to push me off. Instead I pull her closer to me, placing my face in the crook of her neck.



She sighs and snuggles deeper into me. I feel her slow breathing and wished this moment could last forever, but sadly it doesn’t.



“YOO LUKE, Y/N!! WHERE ARE YOU GUYS!” I hear Calum scream from my kitchen. I grumble under my breath while Y/n squeals and gets out of my hold.



“Calum!! We’re over here!!” She yells back, running outside my room and tackling Calum with a hug. I could see them from my bed, hugging and laughing. And in all honesty, I’m angry and jealous that we were interrupted and that Y/n has her attention on Calum, not me.


++++++++++



I decided I’ll finally tell Y/n how I feel. I just want her to be mine, she’s perfect. I don’t want her to get away or maybe worse, taken by someone else.



I get in my car, guitar with me and drove to Y/n’s house, a nervous wreck. Once I get there, I knock twice and was greeted by Y/n and her gorgeous smile.



“Hey Luke! I was gonna call you to come over, whatcha wanna do today?” She says and opens the door wider but looks away from me. A faint blush creeped on her cheeks and I’m glad I had noticed that small change.



I step into her house and stand in the middle of her living room. I fumble with my hands and my feet start to bend over each other, I’m nervous beyond belief and Y/n notices.



“Y/n, I gotta confess something to you, I’m really bad with words, you know that so I wrote it in song instead…” I trail off with my words, looking into Y/n’s confused eyes.



I pull out my guitar and begin to strum the notes then I start to sing:



“We started as friends


But something happened inside me


Now I’m reading into everything


But there’s no sign you hear the lightning, baby


You don’t ever notice me turning on my charm


Or wonder why I’m always where you are



I’ve made it obvious


Done everything but sing it


I’m not so good with words


And since you never notice


The way that we belong


I’ll say it in a love song…..”



I strum off till it fades and end the song, I look up at Y/n and see her in tears. I abruptly stand up, running up to her. I grasp her shoulder with one hand and bring my other to her cheek, wiping her tears away with my thumb. I feel her lean into my touch and I smile warmly at her.



“Y/n why are you crying?” She looks up at me with puffy eyes. Her next words make my heart flutter and explode into oblivion.



“I’m into you too Luke.” She says and breaks into a laugh, wiping her tears. “I’ve always been, but when did you start liking me?” She looks up at me, curious.



My face breaks into a cheesy smile and I pull her into my chest laughing a little, “Wasn’t It Obvious?”

  • Wash your re-useable bags regularly
  • If you can’t fit a box of cereal in your “re-useable” bags dont bring them to the supermarket, theyre too small
  • Don’t yell at the staff
  • Don’t throw a tantrum like a 5 year old when you dont get your way

  • Get off your fucking phone when the cashier is trying to serve you
  • Listen to what the staff are saying to you - like when to swipe your card, what the sale applies to ect.
  • READ the product ticket and sale signs, They tell you everything you need to know. Yes they can be confusing sometimes, ask the staff if you need help. Don’t throw a hissy fit at the register because you read the sign wrong.
  • Saying please and thank you won’t go astray. Manners are free. If you’re polite staff are 203% more likely to want to help you and go out of their way for you
  • Don’t expect the staff to read your mind, tell them what you want/need
  • If you’re having a bad day don’t take it out on the staff, if you’re in that much of a shitty mood do everyone a favour and stay home.
  • Standard plastic bags stores use to pack your items are not designed to be reused, don’t bring them back in to be used. If you want re-useable bags buy them.
  • Shopping trolleys and baskets are not rubbish bins
  • Shelves are not rubbish bins
  • Change rooms are not toilets
  • If an item doesnt scan it’s not free. Don’t make that joke. please.
  • Staff make mistakes, they are human
  • Show your ID when requested, don’t make a huge deal out of it. It’s the law and store policy, if you want service it’s required.
  • If you want to return an item BRING BOTH THE ITEM AND THE RECIEPT, most stores require a reciept for a return and they certainly aren’t going to give you a refund if you didn’t bring the item with you.
  • Don’t make an ass of yourself when they won’t refund an item due to policy or having no reciept.
  • Staff will get fired for not adhearing to policy, their job is more important than breaking the rules for you. If you have a genuine issue with the policy speak to the manager.
  • Don’t be an asshole.

This time last week I was on a bus on my way to my favorite place on earth to see my favorite person on earth after being personally invited by Taylor Nation. I will never ever ever understand how I got so lucky and why I was chosen but I’m glad I was. Thursday was the best day of my life and I miss that feeling of complete and utter joy and freedom that came with being in New York and seeing Taylor and being treated with so much kindness from people I had never met before, all because we love and look up to the same amazing human being. I’ve never felt more comfortable and completely myself around a group of people. Also the ladies at Taylor nation where amazing and kind and the fact that they recognized me is crazy for me to think about.

taylorswift Thank you for thinking of me and thank you for everything else. I hope you liked my poems and my gifts and I hope you give me a sign soon that you read and received everything. You’re so beautiful and you took my breath away. Thank you for this day, you have given me something to look back on during the dark days. I love you more than I can explain.
