A Monster Valentine

“It looks like we can finally celebrate Valentine’s Day,” said Happy Heart, coming home from making sure everyone in Storyland was happy and in love.

Happy Heart just sat down on the sofa and kicked off her shoes, when Valentine Puppy brought her a piece of paper.

“Oh dear!” cried Happy Heart, putting her shoes back on. “We forgot all about Baby Face Monster. He is having some insecurity issues with his fiancĂ©e, Ellie. Come on, Valentine Puppy, let’s go!”

Happy Heart and Valentine Puppy found Baby Face Monster sitting on a rock behind his cave.

“I am so happy to see you,” cried Baby Face Monster. “I didn’t think you were coming. I desperately need your help.”

“You can thank Valentine Puppy for reminding me,” said Happy Heart. “I did almost forget about you and I am so sorry. It has been one of those days.”

“Thank you Valentine Puppy,” said Baby Face Monster, scratching him behind his ear.

“So I understand you are having some insecurity issues with your relationship with Ellie,” said Happy Heart. “What is going on, Baby Face Monster? I know Ellie loves you very much.”

“Yes,” said Baby Face Monster. “She does love me very much and that is why I am so insecure.”

“I don’t understand,” said Happy Heart. “You just told me you know that Ellie loves you. Why are you insecure?”

“Ellie is a very intelligent woman,” said Baby Face Monster. “She is also very beautiful. I feel like I am holding her back.”

“Has she said that to you?” asked Happy Heart. “Has she given you any indication that she feels that way?”

“No,” said Baby Face Monster. “She hasn’t but then, knowing Ellie, she never would.”

“I don’t think she would even think that way about you at all,” said Happy Heart. “You know you are beautiful and intelligent as well. I am sure Ellie sees those qualities in you.”

“Do you really think so?” asked Baby Face Monster.

“Yes,” said Happy Heart. “I really do.”

“Thank you,” said Baby Face Monster, feeling much better about his relationship with Ellie. “I do feel so much better after our talk. I need to go find Ellie.”

Baby Face Monster got up from the rock he was sitting on and he headed toward the entrance of the cave he lived in.

“You are welcome,” said Happy Heart, knowing Baby Face Monster was going to salvage what was left of Valentine’s Day with Ellie.

Happy Heart and Valentine Puppy went home and tried to salvage what was left of their Valentine’s Day. Happy Heart sat down on the sofa and kicked off her shoes, once again. Valentine Puppy brought her another piece of paper.

“Who did we forget now?” asked Happy Heart.

Happy Heart read what was on the piece of paper. It said, “I love You!” Happy Heart burst into tears.

“Happy Valentine’s Day,” she cried, giving Valentine Puppy a big hug. “I love you too!”
