When love Rains (or Reigns ??)

She woke up to the ringing of her alarm, which wouldn't shut off till she got up and switched off the air conditioner, after which she can't sleep cause it's too hot; and the air conditioner would not switch on for the next 15 minutes once switched off. All this was automated to make sure the user would actually wake up on time.

So she got up, brewed some coffee and went to the bathroom. The brush was ready with the paste on it. Lazily she got ready. Her computer that switched on automatically along with the coffee machine beeped out "You've got mail".
* A couple reminders for bills to be paid which she immediately transfered from her account.
* A few advertisements that she sent to the trash.
* A note from her secretary about the activities for the day.
* A coupla dinner invitations.
* A google doc that serves as a love letter.

She read the google doc with care. It was from her boy friend, Zander she met on the internet. She had never met him in person. She only saw his jpeg images, heard his mp3 speeches and songs. All that the doc contained was "Surprise Surprise!". She couldn't make sense of it. Usually he types in all mushy statements that made her blush. She just typed along asking him for what. But he wasn't online she guessed.

She got dressed, set her laptop in hibernation and got to leave when all of a sudden, the air conditioner began to choke. She stopped and looked around. The air conditioner started blowing out small pieces of red heart-shaped paper. Her laptop, which was supposed to be in hibernation started to play lovely old classic songs of love.

"The book of love has music in it
In fact that's where music comes from
Some of it is just transcendental
Some of it is just really dumb
But I
I love it when you sing to me
And you
You can sing me anything"


She stood there dazed and then slowly like as thought he held her, she waltzed in the rain of the heart-shaped papers, to the music from her laptop.

Oh by the way, her laptop reponds to the call of "Zander".
