I find it ironic that I’m not into Valentine’s Day, be it that I write romance. Some of my characters are much more into it – the more romantic being Skye, Ryan and John from Woodland Village. Their partners are either too pragmatic or too busy to think about what day it is…
Skye is an artist and has a creative and sensitive soul, and he is not afraid to display his emotions. His partner Drew is reserved and keeps his emotions close to his chest – so he’d have a difficult time with Valentine’s Day. The best he’d come up with is taking Skye out to dinner to a nice restaurant with an elegant and quiet atmosphere. I’d bet he’d skip on the present and rely on a card for his sentiment.
Skye on the other hand would give Drew something personal. Perhaps he’d create a painting for Drew’s office. Or frame a photograph of the two of them when they were relaxed and happy . It would be a reminder for Drew to stop and just what life has to offer!
Ryan is opposite of his brother Drew. He lives large and is not afraid to show how much he cares for Martin. He’d plan a weekend in New York, booking rooms into The Four Seasons hotel. They’d have dinner at One If By Land, Two If By Sea (since it’s romantic and has a ‘ocean’ theme) – a bit stuffy but Ryan would get a kick out of flaunting his relationship with Martin in front of stuffy New Yorkers.
Martin would get a tattoo where only Ryan could see it. 🙂
John is the romantic of the duo. Scott doesn’t like big crowds. He prefers to be in the background without attention focused on him. John is aware of this and would plan accordingly. He would take Martin to a cabin in the Appalachian Mountains where they would have alone time together. Scott’s present would be giving all his attention to John and not once turning on his laptop to write!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
