an extra person to toast with.”

  “Okay. Sounds good. I can’t think of a prettier date for Valentine’s Day,” Ben said as he grabbed a bundle of roses by the counter. “And what kind of date would I be if I did not bring flowers.”

  Handsome with gentleman qualities, Jen knew this was going to be a good night. They paid for their items and headed to their cars. Jen told Ben to follow her back to her apartment. The ride back to the apartment was different for her. She felt desired and wanted. Ben had always thought that she was pretty and too good for him. It was kind of strange to know now, years after she had met him. If she had known that back when they were sharing lecture notes and lab results, she could have been dating him by now. She may have even spent the past Valentine’s Days with him, but of course that would mean that Kim would have been alone on those days without her, and that was not something she liked to think about. Everything happens when they do for a reason.

  It suddenly hit her that Kim might not be so happy about seeing Jen bring Ben in through the door. What if she got mad? She may get upset. Jen and Kim had made plans for the night. She had cooked a meal and probably set the table for two. It would be horrible if Jen walked into the apartment and ruined Kim’s night by bringing a date. What was she thinking? Her attraction to ben had gotten the better of her.

  The sign to her apartment building was up ahead and as she turned in she kept wondering what would happen when she entered her place. Parking her car, she checked herself in the mirror and got out to meet Ben.

  “Here, let me get your bags.” He took her bagged bottle of wine in one hand and scooped her arm under his other. “I can’t wait to celebrate Valentine’s Day with someone so beautiful and smart.”

  Jen was glad that the sun was going down and the sky was no longer bright so that Ben could not see her reddened cheeks. His flattery was nice but she was not used to the attention and compliments from a guy. It felt amazing but she still got flushed with a touch of embarrassment when she heard him call her beautiful.

  “Okay, this one is mine.” They stopped in front of Jen and Kim’s apartment door.

  Jen reached for the doorknob and silently hoped that her friend would not be too offended that she brought home a guy. Twisting the doorknob, Jen pushed the door open and stepped slowly inside.

  What she saw was not what she expected.

  Sitting on the couch was Kim with an unfamiliar guy. They were locking lips, kissing passionately and holding each other tight. At the sound of the door slamming behind Jen and Ben, Kim and her kissing partner quickly parted lips and turned to Jen. Kim was just as surprised as Jen when she saw Ben. The two best friends looked into each other’s eyes and smiled. They knew Cupid had smiled on them.
