(Don't tell anyone I was here...)

A flower shop.

"No, no roses."

"Geraniums are a good option. They're beautiful, and... they send the right message."

He opens his wallet and takes out a credit card. He changes his mind, places it back in its slot and reaches for a twenty instead.

"Nevermind the vase, actually."

She wraps the bouquet with a bow and slides it into a plastic flower carrier. She takes the twenty and hands him back a dollar and forty-three cents. She hands him the bouquet.

"Thank you. Have a great day."

"Thank you."

He heads for the exit, then pauses near the door and turns around. The woman is typing on her phone. He exits.
