I'm totally crazy about her. I left a bouquet of two hundred and one roses at her door for her birthday, along with a bottle of Armand de Brignac Rosé, and then I hid. An hour later, they were still there - with a note. Give them to your wife. If you do this again, I'll be the one to tell her. I've no clue how she found out. I hired someone to follow her when I couldn't, just because I wanted to take care of her. I know absolutely everything she does. Now she's in the tram, it's raining heavily outside, and she doesn't even have an umbrella.
