Like Leaves to a Tree

by Julie Bozza

Dave has made the most perfect plans for his first Valentine’s Day with Nicholas … but of course that’s when Sod’s Law kicks in, and everything that can go wrong does go wrong.


This wasn’t at all how Dave Goring Taylor had intended to be spending the first Valentine’s Day he’d shared with his husband. The plan was to fly up to Cairns, hire a ‘prestige’ car, stay at the Angsana Hotel & Resort in Palm Cove for a few nights, and take Nicholas to visit the Butterfly Sanctuary in Kuranda which apparently featured the largest aviary in Australia …

It was a great plan, even if Dave did say so himself. But of course on such a momentous occasion Sod’s Law was working in overdrive, and so here they were stranded by the weather in the airport at Mackay.

Oh you lovely pair! And all the Qld references. I could see those places in my head (because I have lived in them!!)

Dave's earnestness, Nicholas' devotion. It's all there. It's wonderful.

Happy valentine's day, and thanks Mz Bozza.
