Wrapped in Ribbons and Bows

A Gift and a Tease

Based on a true story and one that I would welcome again.

After a long day at the office, tired and beat down, he returned home. No greeting at the door, no food on the table. Instead, there was an arrow on the floor. He looked at it, baffled. It was made of cardboard. A man of education, he deduced it was meant for him to follow. It led to a rarely closed door. He turned the knob to discover it locked, but taped to the door was an envelope. With anxious hands, he opened it and read the note. 

"Sorry I was not there to greet you but you are far from forgotten. I hope you will join me soon. I made reservations for 8:30. I recommend a shower, you always work so hard. When you are cleaned up and ready, use the key as I prepared a gift, wrapped in ribbons and bows. I recommend not shaking it- open it carefully and it will tell you where we will be dining tonight. Can't wait to meet up with you, but take your time - some things should not be rushed.  XOXOXO"
