Flowers

"These are for you," Eric said.

Cathy examined the gift. They were a dozen stems with the flower buds still waiting to develop. Not a very romantic gift in her opinion. She'd prefer full on blooming roses.

"Oh...well...thank you," she said. She had no idea what to say. Maybe that they were the most ridiculous romantic gesture she had seen in her life?

"I'm not done," Eric said. "Watch this?"

As she held the dud flowers in her hand, he reached out and touched one of the undeveloped buds. As soon as he did, it grew before her eyes until it became a blooming white rose.

"Wow...that's...that's." She didn't know what to say.

Eric touched the remaining 11 flowers, and each one grew to full bloom before her eyes. Cathy didn't know what to think. She'd never seen anything so amazing in her life.

"How'd you do that?"

"Who cares? I did. The only question I care about is 'Do you love me?'"

"Of course, I do."

"That's the thing that amazes me and I know it isn't an illusion," he said.
