Valentine's Letters

Abdul: *on the doorstep, glancing over my shoulder at my car, wondering if changing my mind and leaving now is an option* *decides it's not and rings the doorbell reluctantly, studying the letter one last time and still drawing a blank*

Quatre: *walks to the door, brushing aside the curtain of the nearby window to peer outside* *flips on the outside light and opens the door* *in surprise* Abdul? Is something wrong?

Trowa: *peers into the foyer, Shih sitting in my arms*

Abdul: *shakes my head* Oh no, Master Quatre, there's nothing wrong! *eyes slide past you before snapping back quickly* I'm not interrupting your evening, am I? I could come back.

Quatre: *steps back from the door, motioning for Abdul to enter* You're not interrupting, Abdul, come in.

Trowa: Would you like something to drink, Abdul? *bends to let the cat down onto the floor, smiling as she wanders over to rub against Abdul's ankle*

Abdul: *edges in the door, stopping briefly to bend down and deliver a little pat to the top of the cat's head* Ah, thank you Master Quatre, Master Trowa... *pushes my glasses back up as I straighten* I won't be long. I just... *wonders where to begin and ends up blurting something out* I have a love letter for you, Master Quatre!

Quatre: *eyes widen* You...do. *shoots a look at Trowa*

Trowa: *raises eyebrow* *sideways glance at Quatre* Uh...hm...Abdul you do know that...um... *gestures between Quatre and myself*

Abdul: *stares blankly for a moment before the tips of my ears turn red* I beg your pardons sirs, the letter isn't from me. *looks hastily between the two of you* Not that I do not love Master Quatre, please don't get me wrong. If anyone is deserving of a letter addressing my devotion and love it is he, but my love doesn't stray into the romanti-

Quatre: *laughs in relief* Thank god. That was getting a bit too surreal for a moment there. *grins at Trowa and turns to shut the door* Now, what about this letter has you in such a state?

Trowa: *chuckles, covering my mouth with one hand and shaking my head*

Abdul: *brows drawing together* There were many letters this week, as I'm sure you know, but this one was crafted with so much care that I could not bear to leave it with the others that could not be verified. I tried my best, Master Quatre, but could not decipher the riddle, so shrouded in feminine mystique! *hands it to you* It came with flowers, the large, lovely bouquet I had sent on to your office. *peers over the rim of my glasses at you*

Quatre: *takes the letter, unfolding it to read as I slowly walk over to Trowa to share it with him* *lips curl into a knowing smile*

Trowa: *other eyebrow shoots up* Well. She's certainly fond of you. Should I be jealous? *small smile*

Abdul: I wasn't overstepping my boundaries delivering this to you, was I, Master Quatre? *clears my throat and subtly adjusts my tie*

Quatre: *looks at Trowa in amusement* I don't think you have anything to worry about, love. She's a sweet girl, certainly, but she's not you. Abdul, you did nothing wrong, thank you for bringing this over. *catches Abdul's nervous gesture and raises an eyebrow* Hot date tonight?

Trowa: *smirks at Abdul* Anyone we know?

Abdul: *splits a grin and rubs the back of my neck* It's a blind date, actually. Bad day for it, I think, but maybe things will go well.

Quatre: *claps Abdul on the shoulder, giving him an encouraging smile* You'll be fine. You've already charmed the majority of the females at WEI, one more shouldn't be too troublesome to manage.

Trowa: *nods* That's right, Abdul - she'll never know what hit her.

Abdul: Well, with your permission, I'll be on my way then. *gives one last scritch to the cat leaning happily against my leg*

Quatre: *nods* Of course. Enjoy your night, Abdul, and thank you again.

Trowa: *smiles* Good night, Abdul, and good luck. *winks*

Abdul: You too, Master Quatre, Master Trowa. Have a good night that is. Sorry to have interrupted. *backs out the door, giving a little wave and nearly tripping over the threshold* *regains my composure and slings my keys into my hand, whistling happily on my way back to my car*

~~~~~~~

Along with a very sweet and personal note, the message in question had certain instructions for me, which I will follow per the writer's request. I will say, however, that I am fairly certain I know who this is from. I'm grateful that your regard for me is such that you'd send such a thing, and I think you make a fine up-and-coming Angel, if the reigning Conspirators haven't inducted you as a full-fledged member already. *winks*

~~~~~~~

The writer gave me a riddle having to do with various flowers and their meanings, and instructed that I post the flowers, along with their meanings, here. There is more than one interpretation to some of these.

Cowslip - Comeliness, winning grace, you are my divinity, pensiveness

Blue Violet - Watchfulness, Faithfulness, love, loyalty

Creeping Cereus - Modest Genius

Lady's Tresses - Bewitching Grace

Jasmine - Elegance, amiability

Baby's Breath - Pure of heart, everlasting love


Have I puzzled out your riddle to your satisfaction?

Current Mood: touched touched

Ah so it IS one of us!! *glances around*

*pokes Char*

Oi...Why's it always me, eh? *pokes back*

:p
yunami From: yunami Date: February 15th, 2005 09:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
...Maybe because it's always you? *Grins at you* You have to admit, you have a reputation.

And I should really be in bed. I'm going to be such a bitch when I wake up.

'Night all!

Good night Yunami!

And CHAR, she's RIGHT XD

Hey Quatre, here's a joke for you!

Q: Which is smaller, a violin or a viola?

A: They are actually the same size, but a violinist's head is so much bigger.
lavenderfrost From: lavenderfrost Date: February 16th, 2005 07:43 am (UTC) (Link)
And CHAR, she's RIGHT XD

*amused*
I'm not ALWAYS up to something, you know. :p
yunami From: yunami Date: February 16th, 2005 07:50 am (UTC) (Link)
I didn't say you were always "up to something," just that when something is up, you're almost always involved in there somewhere. ~.^
cailamaia From: cailamaia Date: February 16th, 2005 12:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
How true. *snerk**pokes Char*

I'm not ALWAYS up to something, you know. :p

You're not? Well, I suppose you have to sleep sometime.
lavenderfrost From: lavenderfrost Date: February 16th, 2005 03:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
*amused snort*
I'm a night student with a now-full-time (for the time being, anyway) job, Nii-chan. What the hell is this "sleep" that you speak of? :p

cailamaia From: cailamaia Date: February 16th, 2005 10:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sleep. The ever elusive student's pipe dream. Most get little, some get just enough to get by, and others overdose. It also messes you up, should you not get enough. It's a lot like a drug or addiction in some ways.

[/sleep deprived maunderings] To bed for real this time. Couldn't sleep the first time, 'cause I couldn't breathe... o.0
solrosa From: solrosa Date: February 16th, 2005 10:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Don't worry, the riddle below I think proved that it's not you, they give their age and I'm sure you're a year younger.
cailamaia From: cailamaia Date: February 16th, 2005 10:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
*snerk!*
solrosa From: solrosa Date: February 16th, 2005 10:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
What? I think Char is only 21. This person said that they were 22. (Or at least I think that is what they were saying.)
>.>
<.<
Maybe its you? Hmmmmm.
cailamaia From: cailamaia Date: February 16th, 2005 10:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Me? Write as good a poem as that? Tchyeah. Right. My talents lie elsewhere. That is one thing I'd never be able to pull off. I must admit that I'm flattered that you thought it was me though.
cailamaia From: cailamaia Date: February 16th, 2005 11:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
And besides... I'm barely 20. Not quite old enough to be the author.
solrosa From: solrosa Date: February 16th, 2005 11:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh sure! Blow my theory out of the water. XP

Hm, a mystery then, who could it be?

(Someone is out there laughing their ass off at all of this, I'm sure. >_<)
cailamaia From: cailamaia Date: February 17th, 2005 06:09 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh sure! Blow my theory out of the water. XP

Sorry? *grin* I think?

Someone is out there laughing their ass off at all of this, I'm sure. >_<

Lol, prolly. Eh well. Whoever it is will have to come out eventually.
lavenderfrost From: lavenderfrost Date: February 17th, 2005 09:27 am (UTC) (Link)

20, not 21

If that's age, then it's off by two, not one. I'm not 21 yet - I have about 4 more months before that happens.

*eyes riddle below*
...this should definitely prove to be interesting.
yunami From: yunami Date: February 17th, 2005 12:17 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 20, not 21

Indeed. I...don't get it. Then again, I never was very good at riddles. About the most difficult I can solve are the ones from "The Hobbit," and those only because I already know the answers, lol.
jedilora From: jedilora Date: February 16th, 2005 02:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Man, everyone's saying it with flowers lately.

No, seriously. I now have the Victorian Guide to the Language of Flowers downloaded, simply because I needed it for a friend.
yunami From: yunami Date: February 16th, 2005 03:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
*Suspicious glance* A friend? Suuuure. Maybe it was you!

yunami From: yunami Date: February 16th, 2005 03:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
*Just teasing*^^^
jedilora From: jedilora Date: February 17th, 2005 12:45 am (UTC) (Link)
^_^

Seriously. (She's writing a story, so it's a little different than Quatre's. War of the Roses based, so she needs to set up other Houses in her AU. Thus, flowers!)
jedilora From: jedilora Date: February 17th, 2005 12:46 am (UTC) (Link)
(Which, looking at your icons, I feel the need to mention is a YGO S/A fic.)
yunami From: yunami Date: February 17th, 2005 02:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ooh, awesome! Yes, I'm a huge YGO fan (manga, not dub!), as pretty much anybdy who knows me could tell you.
jedilora From: jedilora Date: February 18th, 2005 12:39 am (UTC) (Link)
Heh. You might like this then. Did you hear of the YGO video game that took the characters and dumped them into the War of the Roses?

Yeah...akavertigo got bit by a bunny BAD.
yunami From: yunami Date: February 17th, 2005 04:49 am (UTC) (Link)
Ooh. Sounds pretty cool. *Should be catching up on her own negelcted writing projects, actually*
From: (Anonymous) Date: February 16th, 2005 10:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
As you see, the words of love come in many forms - a single flower and smile may speak volumes that written or spoken words simply cannot convey.

Therefore, I lay at your feet one final test. I see that you are well versed in the languages of romance, and will surely understand this final request I most humbly put forth.

I am...

Two and two, young and old
Under my spell, hearts break or mend.
I come eagerly to lovers bold,
Fondly to brothers and friends.

I followed cloven apples, so spicy-sweet
In hall and home of the Virgin Queen.
In old Italy an early death did meet
Those who heeded my call, lest unseen.

Victoria gave me her hand, the gods their feet,
I sealed vow and status before the Tsars,
The Romans found me where'er they did meet,
I am the stuff of dreams no man can mar.

I bring luck and fresh starts,
But I can foreshadow grief.
Guilt and damnation I bring some hearts,
In all his silver, the Son of Kerioth found no relief.

But to you, sir, I bring no more than this:
Affection, sweet prince, from a heart ever true.
She asks not for passion's fire, nor romantic bliss,
A sign of simple friendship will do...

..that is, if you can read this and solve each clue. ^_~

What am I?
chaostheory From: chaostheory Date: February 20th, 2005 08:38 am (UTC) (Link)
It has to be Forgiveness, the son of Kerioth tipped me to that.
yunami From: yunami Date: February 20th, 2005 10:06 am (UTC) (Link)
Who is the son of Kerioth?
billion_dlr_boy From: billion_dlr_boy Date: February 20th, 2005 10:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Who is the son of Kerioth?

Judas Iscariot.
yunami From: yunami Date: February 20th, 2005 10:40 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh. Okay then. Thanks!
billion_dlr_boy From: billion_dlr_boy Date: February 20th, 2005 10:12 am (UTC) (Link)
Forgiveness fits for the clue involving Judas, but it doesn't work if you consider the other parts. My guess is she's talking about a kiss.
solrosa From: solrosa Date: February 16th, 2005 11:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
You know Quatre out of all the ladies and gentlemen here, you seem to always get the most . . . affectionate attentions? (Is that a good way to put it?) Hell, everybody loves you. Not saying that we don't love the others cause you know we do, ah hell, I'm shutting up now.
