Love In the House Of Beamlette
Valentine’s Day 2008
Posted February 14, 2008
Looking around, I was struck by HOW many “in-house” couples I have –
l. to r., Arsinoe
and Varius; Demelza and

Me: I would imagine it’s for Valentine’s Day – my, but that’s nice.
Fenchurch: Yes… wow… I wonder what it could be…
Fenchurch: If you don’t mind, I think I’ll go to my room now! *smile*
Me: Of course, sweetie – Happy Valentine’s Day.
And a Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone on the Realm of Resin/Zone of Zen, too!
