Fizz always wanted to be a mailman. When he was 10, His mom let him trail their mailman, Gus, for a few blocks. Being a young friend of Gus, and seeing his passion for delivering letters…well, it rubbed off on him.

Fizz did become a mailman, and proudly wears his uniform of blue. He thought it might also attract the ladies. However, if it did, he would probably pass out. Fizz has always been a little on the shy side, but has the heart of a storybook romance. He has had a couple of lady friends, but has yet to find the one that makes his heart pound strong. And fairy tale or not, that is what Fizz is waiting on.

Fizz also has a sweet tooth. Cupcakes are his weakness. He used to buy them at Pearl’s Pastry Shop while on his mail route, but his route changed. Someone named, Melissa, handed out samples of their newest cupcake last week. It was loaded with everything Fizz liked—it was almost as if it was made just for him.

Fizz has been craving that cupcake daily, but has been too busy to make a special trip to buy one. However, today was the day. Fizz finished his route early and decided to stop by Pearl’s.

As he stepped inside the bakery, the bell jingled. Fizz walked toward the case where the girl stood that had given him the sample. She greeted him. “May I help you?” She asked. “Yes, Fizz answered, you handed me a sample of the most amazing cupcake last week. I’ll take one of those, please.”

Before Melissa could speak, the owner, Pearl, (this would be the Pearl that has the crush on Fizz) interrupted. “Well, hello. I believe you used to be our mailman and a fine mailman you were. I’m the owner, Pearl. That cupcake is my newest creation. It’s called the ‘The Everything’. Because it’s your first, it’s on the house!”

Fizz nodded and replied, “It’s my lucky day, and I must add that that cupcake has everything in it I love—it’s almost like you made it especially for me!” Pearl glanced down and then looked straight into Fizz’s brown eyes. She barely whispered, “Perhaps I did…” Fizz’s heart pounded…strong. For the first time in his life, he thought his heart was about to explode.
