Valentine’s Day (part Deux)
Rafael was older. She had known him for such a long time now. He saw her grow up from the little girl with pig tails to the teenager she was now. He was always so nice to her and never made her feel like an outsider just because she was so much younger. But from the moment he asked her to go with him to the Valentine’s Day dinner, she knew it was only to help out his brother, Vincent.
Vincent (or Vinny which was how everyone called him) had been roaming her for a while now. They would speak on the phone and she enjoyed the conversations but that was as far as she knew that could go. She was sure of this because of one thing; Vinny had a friend and her feelings for him were a different story.
