Everyday Romance

Work Text:

There's kids to get to school and cases to be worked on so February 14th may as well just be another date on the calendar.

She and Richard have been together for five years now but when they pull into the station car park, Richard pulls a slightly crumpled card from the glove compartment.

"Happy Valentine's, Janine."

"Thanks, love, yours is still at home. Didn't get time to write it yet. Sorry."

Richard smiles, "something to look forward to later. Ready to go in?"

Janine nods and puts the card in her bag. She'll read it in her office later.
