Rapunzel had been busy planning, and had everything nearly perfect for her Valentine's Day dinner with Alex. She was wearing a pretty dress with something naughty underneath for later, and she'd brought up a fancy meal from the bar and set it out on the table, just waiting for the candles to be lit, the lights to be dimmed, and Alex to arrive.

She has out wine glasses and a bucket of ice, and goes to put on some soft music while she waits.

There is a knock on the door. (Yes, he has the key, but it somehow seems better to knock.) "Anyone home," he asks sweetly.

"Happy Valetine's Day, my love!!" He leans in for a long and soft and passionate kiss, but holds onto the large heart-shaped box in his left hand.

he's got on a fairly new white shirt with blue stripes, a red tie, suspenders, and good slacks and shoes. It's nicer than he dresses for work, even though it's the same kind of clothes.

"And look at you...very, very nice." He closes the door behind him.

"No, you didn't," he says as he takes in that little bit of skirt and those legs. "And I for one entirely endorse short dresses." He hands her the big box of chocolate. "I believe this is customary for a lover to bring his lady on this day?"

"Errrrr." He knew he forgot something. "I'll be right back!" And he hurries out the door and downstairs, and is back in a minute.

"Voila," he says somewhat sheepishly as he enters again (this time using his key). It's one of the nicer red wines he knows Raps likes.

"I had a good teacher?" He takes in the room. It feels cozy. And romantic. And like home.

"Are we just about ready to eat, my lady?"

"Wow. You really outdid yourself. This is as nice as any place in Gotham. Nicer." Alex pulls out Rapunzel's chair. "If you'll allow me, dear?"

"You could have lied," he suggests playfully. "In fact, I will assume that the Bar, knowing what an amazing cook you are, took ever recipe from your shelves and did it exactly like you would have.

"Shall I see what you and the Bar concocted?" He reaches slowly for the dome before him.

"I don't think anyone in history has ever gone wrong with steak and potatoes." He can be forgiven for not knowing about Atkins. "And of course I am hungry." He winks at her.

And then cuts off a nice piece. "Medium well. You knew!"

"I don't know. Kinda funny. I mean, last year, we did that whole prank thing, and that was great. But that wasn't entirely Valentine's Day, was it? I loved it, but now..." His smile is huge and warm and comfortable. "We didn't really know each other the way we do now.

"Which i guess means it's still Valentine's Day for us, no matter what the day is, and that's what counts? Like how I celebrate Christmas in February and Halloween on New Year's Eve?"

"It is, isn't it," he says with equal parts wonder and ego. "Maybe next year we can find a way to celebrate more things there. New Year's Eve in Gotham can be...interesting." Another word for full of crime? "And if we can work something out with your hair, it's probably time you met Lynn Vega and got to come for Thanksgiving."

He tries the potatoes. Perfect, of course.

"I think telling at least some of the truth would be nice. I don't like the idea of hiding who and what you are. I get that we have to but...well, you know I like the truth.

"And I like the idea that people can get to see you. The real you." The woman he loves and that he is going to hold onto. "Besides, with all the other supertypes, maybe they'll just think you're one of them."

"Any chance you would start wearing a spandex costume and fighting crime," he asks jokingly.

"If you want to try it, I'm game. It would open things up for you." For them, to travel and to enjoy life, at the very least.

"Unless you're a supermodel?" He smiles very coyly,

"Oh, before I forget...this weekend I might be going up to New England. There are a couple of heroes I want to do some research on. People seem to like my columns about the topic, so I'm going to do some more. Wanna come along for the ride?"

"I have an old...friend is way strong...in Boston. A pompous twit of a TV reporter named Vic Sage. I might head down to the waterfront, and see where this No Face Guy showed up. And we'll stop at Ivy Town and find some witnesses to the Atom's appearances.

"I bet you'll like both places. Ivy is an old college town, lots of antique shops. Maybe I'll get you another Valentine's Day gift?" He's smiles evermore at the idea of a road trip to follow this holiday.

"Yeah, but it's fun. Besides, I read someplace that sometimes it's good to get gifts for no reason.

"And what do you say we book a luxury suite at the Ritz in Boston? One with a view. And a bot tub." He can have as much of a glint of mischief, though hers is, he would admit, sexier.

He's close to done with his steak.

"Only one way to find out, darlin'. But the Boston I know has a few historic sites they preserve. Those would probably be the same." He's tempted to ask if she remembers the Revolution, but somehow that seems a bit rude (even if she's never shy about her age).

"And there's a really nice park near the Ritz. We can take a long walk, yes?"

He gets up and moves to behind Rapunzel, and begins to massage her shoulders. "What do you have in mind?"

"Oh boy. That's a tough choice. Maybe we can take the mousse to the bedroom?" He runs his hair through her hair, which is getting close to a length suitable for swimming in.

"Yup. But Valentine's Day deserves something special, dontcha think?" Alex moves around to the side of Raps' chair and gently takes her arm. "Shall we?"
