Red roses first, then camellias, every coloured petal announcing love, devotion, desire, more followed. He kept them, collected from his pillow, atop a book, pinned to his apron in the shop, all the myriad places they were left; never catching the anonymous giver.

It didn’t take genius to know where they came from, or their meaning; he was surprised the sender knew the language. Roses smelled sweet, but reminded him of death. The camellia’s scent seemed to cover the sickly odor of decay and decadence.

When the offerings withered and dried he returned them, adding a single yellow carnation.

A single yellow carnation. Oh, you brilliant girl!

And YAYAYAY!! You not only wrote, but admitted to it, and actually posted!

I'm going to start posting anonymously, somewhere. That's what this place was supposed to be, but I feel like I know people here. That sounds strange even to me. I'm glad you liked it.

It amazes me how much you are able to convey in only a few sentences. This really was brilliant, if bittersweet. I loved it.

Thank you! I hold out hope that Aya will relent, because Yohji is, of course, relentless. Maybe chocolates?

I hate to think of what Aya would do with those. Take a nibble from the entire box, take what he likes, then leave the box out with all the ones with single bites removed? ;D

Don't you just want to WHUMP Aya sometimes? I'll see what I can do, would you take smutty Crawford/Schuldig? It's turning into a ficlet though.

I like any of your writing, but I'm afraid for reading material, I'm mostly a Weiss girl :-) I'll prolly read it if you post it though!

Thank you for sharing that. You are one of those amazing people who can convey a world of feelings with just 100 words. I'm in awe.

You are so welcome! It's sheer laziness I tell you! Thank you.

Very excellent.

And it won't be easy if it happens, but we can hope that Aya might come around ~ some day.

Aya is such a hard nut to crack! Thank you.
