I've always wanted make a conversation hearts pattern because of this passage. Conversation hearts were included in the New Moon Quilt, too.
Happy Valentine's Day, Jacob said, smiling, but ducking his head as he greeted me.
He held out a small, pink box, balancing it on his palm. Conversation hearts.
Well, I feel like a schmuck, I mumbled. Is today Valentine's Day?
Jacob shook his head with mock sadness. You can be so out of it sometimes. Yes, it is the fourteenth day of February. So are you going to be my Valentine? Since you didn't get me a fifty-cent box of candy, it's the least you can do.
I started to feel uncomfortable. The words were teasing, but only on the surface.
What exactly does than entail? I hedged
The usual--slave for life, that kind of thing.
Oh, well, if that's all... I took the candy. But I was trying to think of some way to make the boundaries clear. Again. They seemed to get blurred a lot with Jacob.

I've imported the image into EQ7 and done some preliminary sectioning. I'll print it out and clean it up. I hope I can get it right! The messages will have to be embroidered.
