Chapter Text

Jounouchi and Kaiba were not celebrating Valentine’s Day.

The vase may happen to be filled with fresh flowers, and their words a bit sweeter.

But they do not celebrate such a commercial, sacchrine holiday.

Dinner might be cooked a bit more carefully today, and the wine a generous pour.

But no, they’ll never say to one another the words.

They may speak over dinner about their first rendezvous and their friends celebrating Valentine’s Day, but they will not be partaking.

Who could need such a contrived day?

If they remember to say I love you more kindly, it’s probably because they’re both in agreement, that they don’t need a holiday to celebrate the precious peace they’ve created between them.

And not because it’s Valentine’s Day.
