Sam stepped forward, walked in her direction, and said: "I know it's not snowing today, but I couldn't help but notice your lovely smile. The last time we met you almost knocked me over. "
"Oh, I remember you." She smiled, "I did apologize", she said shyly.
Encouraged Sam continued. "Yes you did apologize, very nicely too. I didn't get your name last time, the station was quite noisy and you had to rush off. Would you , um, consider a cup of coffee in the lounge and these chocolates I bought? That is if you have the time? My name is Sam, by the way." Sam could feel his cheeks getting flush and his heart beating with hope he hadn't come on too boldly.
She looked at the station clock, just enough time. He seems like a sweet man. Then she said, "I would love to Sam, my train isn't for another 55 minutes. I'm called Merry, by the way, please to meet you." Merry, that's a pretty name", Sam replied.
Sam felt relief as she accepted the box of chocolates and took the arm he offered as they turned to go through the station doorway. Sam thought to himself, Perhaps this will be a Valentine's Day to remember for a life time.
