Amber Sims, friend of the friendless, is holding onto a twenty-year-old memory of a homeless past--with the hopes of it rekindling a friendship and maybe more on Valentine's Day.  But life doesn't often turn out the way you want it.  Can Amber detour in time to find love?  Or, will she be alone forever?

Mark Ford is his own boss at Ford's Footwear, but when it comes to love, he couldn't get an interview.  Will his troubled past prevent a relationship with Amber?  Or, is she the part of the puzzle that fits perfectly into his life of solitude?

(*This short story of mine had "14.3K" reads in "Hearts on Sleeves," the 2015 Valentine's Day anthology in which it had first appeared on Wattpad!  Read it here now--on my page.  Enjoy!)
