Sleeping peacefully, my alarm goes off, waking me up from my slumber.

       Getting out of bed, slipping on my slipper's, I then began to make my way to the living room.

       Opening the front door, making my way outside.

Looking back up at Billy, he say's

       "These are for you, Miss. My mother thought these flower's were really pretty, to give to you. So I've picked these ones out. Hope you love them," Billy say's, gently handing me the flowers. Shocked, I say
