James hummed as he handed the nervous boy a bouquet, wishing him luck on his date. He had given him a lavender bouquet, love at first sight, explaining that to the boy who grinned and nodded before walking off. Now he was just doodling a drawing of a primrose, humming softly when he heard the bell ring. His eyes darted up and it took everything in him to not run into the man’s arms. Thomas was back from France. Now, he and Thomas used to be in love, well James was still in love, but when Thomas had to go to France for work, he knew they wouldn’t last. He didn’t want to have to make Thomas wait for him. Thomas smiled at him slowly, looking around.
“You still work here?” He asked and James shrugged.
“Well, I am the owner.” He said softly and Thomas walked up to the counter, cocking his head.
“Can I have red and white carnations?” Thomas asked and it took everything in James to not break down. Those were the flowers he used to get Thomas.
“Deep love and pure devotion.” He said softly and Thomas nodded, chuckling.
