Daily Prompt: Secret Admirers

Daily Prompt: Secret Admirers

You return home to discover a huge flower bouquet waiting for you, no card attached. Who is it from — and why did they send it to you?

Carnations, my favorite
They came without a card
But who would send me flowers?

It’s not my birthday.

The single mother across the hall comes out her door
Smiles. – “Those are pretty.”
She turns towards the lift

Maybe it was she?

Opening the door, I take them inside
The phone is ringing from the breakfast bar – “Hello”
“Rick, honey? It’s Mom.”                                        I know.

“Mom, did you…”

“Ricky, your sister’s calling through on the other line
I’ll call you right back. Okay?”
“Sure, Mom.” The line was already dead.

Already on with Eileen, no doubt.

I worry about the bouquet
Sleep eludes me most of the night.
Have I forgotten a significant date?

Someone from work? Who?

The cute checker from the market?
That would be nice.
Was she flirting with me last weekend?

I’ll go shopping tomorrow – just to make sure.
