what a wonderful story! I haven't read the rest yet but I can tell it's excellent! I love secretly romantic!Klaus, and you have him spot on here.
A question: I don't understand what a vase of Aloe is for--or what it is exactly for that matter. Is this some sort of national custom? I am assuming you are American from your spelling and usage ('gotten') but of course I may be wrong. Just curious!
You're right, I live in America. Around where I grew up, people were always given aloe plants at funerals and kept them in memory of the deceased. I hadn't thought to question how widespread the custom was. In the story, I just used it as a gesture of sympathy. No deeper meaning than that. Sorry, I probably should have elaborated a little more.
And thanks! I'm happy you're enjoying it so far.
