I stepped out of the cold into Joan's while I waited for the liquor store across the street to open. I ordered a cup of coffee and looked at my watch.

Florists aren't the only businesses that get a boost from Valentine's day. Liquor stores also see increased traffic because there are people who want to forget. Lots of people. I was up early to avoid the crowd.

At nine o'clock I paid for my coffee and headed across the street. Vikram nodded to me from behind the counter.

I had a feeling I'd see you today, he said.
