The Story: 

After finalizing her divorce, a decision that had blindsided her and left her feeling emotionally drained, Himari decided to leave San Francisco and its painful memories behind for a couple of weeks. While Mexico was tempting, she chose Boston instead, drawn by the presence of old college friends.

It was on a serene afternoon, as she sat by the pond in Boston Public Garden, admiring the graceful swans, that she first saw him. A man's gaze usually made her uncomfortable, but this stranger, Tony, had an odd way of making her feel at ease. His charm was immediate and disarming, sparking an engaging conversation between them. That evening, they dined in his favorite restaurant in the vibrant North End, and said their goodnights under a starlit sky near the park.

Their connection deepened the next day over coffee in a quaint café on Charles Street, close to Himari's hotel in Beacon Hill. As they meandered along the cobblestone streets, humorously contemplating real estate flyers, Himari found herself momentarily forgetting her ex-husband and basking in the joy Tony brought into her life. His romantic gestures and sensitivity made her feel cherished.

However, on the third day, a different side of Tony emerged. He sulked in the corner during a gathering with her college friends and oscillated between cold indifference and overwhelming affection when she talked about returning home.

Though grateful for the upliftment Tony had brought to her spirits, Himari was unsettled by his erratic moods. On their last day together, as she revisited the spot where they first met, Tony, in a grand gesture of affection, bought an armful of tulips from a florist across the street. Absorbed in his romantic endeavor, he failed to notice a bustling double-decker bus rounding the corner. Tragically, as he stepped off the curb, the bus struck him, and the air was suddenly filled with a cascade of tulips, creating a poignant scene that, for the tourists atop the bus, mirrored the beauty of fireworks on Independence Day.

The sudden loss was a jarring reminder for Himari of life's unpredictability. As she reflected on her brief yet intense encounter with Tony, she realized the importance of embracing each moment and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of unexpected challenges.
