"A Late Valentine's Reunion" by rurirawr
Valentine's Day meant little to Tasha now. She had had enough of the holiday for as long as she could remember, though it seemed like she had spent her entire life at this point in time being reminded of how little she had to celebrate. The only one she had ever really celebrated with these past four decades was herself, but self-love didn't really count, did it? Buying a bouquet of red carnations was about the only thing she did which resembled a Valentine’s Day activity. It wasn't so much that she loved the flowers that it was merely a habit. Forty-five years ago, these carnations would've been gifted to her younger twin sister. She used to be able to remember the day vividly despite trying to push it out of her mind - the tragic day when Sasha contracted what seemed like a simple case of Sneezles, only for her to leave the world later that evening due to severe complications. It seemed like a distant memory she could barely recall now, and she hoped it would stay that way. She didn't want to shed any more tears.
