A/N: Got the idea for this one-shot Wednesday while I was in my Psychology class, but waited until today to post.
Thank you to HappilyEverAfter7 for betaing
Alice smiled and shook her head as she watched the giggling girls walk by. It was Valentine's Day and almost every girl in the school was currently drooling over how perfect their boyfriends were and who had the better one based on the gifts they had received. The hallway was decorated with paper hearts, pink and red streamers and several other different kinds of Valentine Day decorations.
She and Jasper did not believe in celebrating Valentine's Day, to them there was no reason to celebrate it. It was just the fourteenth of February, nothing extremely important happened to them on that day. They celebrated their love everyday and found it pointless to celebrate a day because everyone else did.
To them it just did not make sense, people were buying gifts because they felt obliged to, and not because they wanted to. The males stressed over what to get for their girlfriends because they had to outdo what they did last year or outdo their friends. The girls on the other hand expected the gifts, almost demanded them, and if the boy did not deliver, then he was in trouble. To them that was not showing their love, the whole concept of the day was lost to the both of them.
Alice smiled when she caught sight of Jasper standing outside of the school by the stairs. Her smile faltered slightly when she saw the look on his face; he had obviously had a hard day.
She knew he had not wanted to come to school that morning for fear of being surrounded by all the hormonal teenage boys and giddy teenage girls. Unfortunately several of his teachers were having tests today so he had not been able to skip. Alice walked outside and glanced around at all the lovesick teens. She shook her head as she watched the chocolate hearts, the giant stuffed teddy bears, balloons, cards and flowers were passed from boy to girl. She then grabbed Jaspers hand lightly and rolled her eyes at him, silently telling him how stupid she thought today was. The corners of Jasper's mouth turned up in a small smile as he turned to lead her towards the cars.
"What do you think he got her?" Alice could hear an excited classmate whisper to her friend.
"Um…I don't, know how about the necklace she is wearing?" Her friend whispered back.
Alice glanced out of the corner of her eye to see the girls looking at them as Jasper looked down briefly at the butterfly pendent she was wearing. Alice shook her head slightly as if in response to the girls, the pendent had been a gift from Jasper, a week ago.
"No she was wearing that last week." The first one said as she clutched a giant stuff teddy bear holding a big pink heart.
"Oh, well, whatever he got her I bet it was super romantic," her friend gushed.
"Yeah." The other girls voice dreamy.
Alice was fighting hard not laugh out loud and she could feel Jasper doing the same. They would never believe that to them, February fourteenth was just another day.
A/N: So there is one of my Valentine Day fics, hope you guys enjoy.
