My Dearest Mr. Pratdragon,
I'll stop the daily flower
couriers if you stop telling our
friends I slept with your father.
You're a sick man and I expect
you to pay for the therapy I'll
need from that mental image.
Deal, but only if you keep up the
weekly chocolates. I particularly
enjoy the caramel ones, and if I get
one more box filled with nothing but
almond clusters I'm going to give the
creepy guy from the mail room your
mobile number and home address.

Stop pretending you don't want me.
Everyone knows you want me.
Morgana can see that you want me,
and she hates me.
Looking forward to your visit,
P.S. Thank you for saving me from
Cedric, even though it was your
fault he stalked me in the first place.
Yes, all right. It will be a chore, but
I suppose I can see my way to
buggering you vigorously. Only way
to shut you up, I imagine.

And you say I never have good
ideas. You've kept it up remarkably
well for a bloke who claims to find me
Merlin, you are annoying. Since
you've finally learned to stop trying
to talk with your mouth full, however,
I have hopes that you may yet be
Hopes, Merlin, not expectations.
P.S. After last night, gags are no
longer negotiable. It's large, it's red,
and it locks in place. Be very nice to

I really do love you, you know.
Happy Valentine's Day.
You're disgustingly sappy. I knew
this was a mistake.
I love you, too.
