In the spirit of spring: you’re the first girl I’ve ever given flowers to

As the bus approached the stop closest to her apartment, he found that in addition to being excited to see her again, he also felt as though he was being drawn to her by some unseen force. It was a feeling he had never experienced before.
When she opened the door, he presented her with the flowers, and she seemed genuinely touched by the somewhat archaic gesture. She reached up to place a kiss tenderly on his cheek, and the warmth of her touch was still lingering as he followed her hesitantly into the apartment.
“Did you know that no one has ever brought me flowers before?” she commented as she rummaged under the kitchen sink in search of a suitable vase for the carnations.
“I find that hard to believe,” he replied. “But for what it’s worth, you’re the first girl I’ve ever given flowers to.”
