Two old men surrounded by a ragtag group of geriatrics at an assisted living home find that it isn't too late in life to find someone to spend your life with.

This very short story is part of the Less Than Three Valentine bundle.

As the story progresses, however, we see that Leo is moving away

Err... "Iaquinta" is not a common Italian "surname" (but there is an Italian soccer player with that name-- ...a coincidence?! ;D), and if Robert is full Italian, then he miss a "o" at the end of his name. Just saying. =/
Anyway, it was such a sweet, cute story. :3

A sweet short story about two elderly males settling down together.
This was so cute. Honestly, I even teared up a little. So, so sweet.
