Valentine's Day, one of the most obnoxious holiday's that the world had created. It was just a stupid holiday that made people gush over one another when they should be doing that everyday anyway. But it was the one holiday that Kasey really wanted to express to Addison how he really felt. He wasn't the best at words and they were constantly fighting but to Kasey that just meant that they were meant to be together. You piss someone off so much that they drive you crazy that you want to die, but then you think to yourself that you would be leaving the one person who means the world to you and you would be selfish if you ever thought about doing that. From the moment that he had met Addison he knew that he loved her and that he was going to marry her someday.
And then the inevitable happened, she had an abortion and kept it from him and she wrote him a stupid letter. Then they got into a fight, she broke her hand and they left on bad terms. This was when they were 16 years old and they have been on and off again since then. He thought they were going good but then Alex kept coming into the picture. Whenever he wanted alone time with her Alex would always become the third wheel and Kasey couldn't do anything romantic with Addison. He was beyond pissed off, especially the night where Addison texted him to come into her room and Alex punched him right in the nose and broke it, that was when he knew that he was going to kill him one day if he ever got out of line again.
Walking over to his nightstand he pulled out a box with a promise ring in it. He was going to give this to her the night he found out that she had the abortion but he couldn't do it, she had ripped his heart out of his chest and he didn't think that he could handle that at that point and time. "Now I think it is the right time to give this to Addison. We have been arguing less but also have been hanging out a lot more and he wanted to get back together with her, and what perfect day then valentines day. Running his fingers through his hair he let out a soft sigh. He was so f***ing nervous and he didn't know why. This wasn't their first date and it wasn't their first time talking so he really needed to get over himself.
He lived only a few blocks south of the bookstore that Addison owned and it was a nice night to walk. Stopping at the supermarket to get a dozen red roses a big smile formed on his face and he was the happiest he had ever been. Humming to himself as he walked along he stopped dead in his tracks when he looked through the front door of the book store to see Addison with Alex, he was pulling her close and hugging her. Feeling defeated he threw the roses at the door and shoved the ring box back into his sweatshirt pocket and turned around walking home. It seemed like Addison made her decision on who she wanted and it wasn't him.
