Gardner needs to pull himself together.
He is heart broken over the nightclub
singer, Esmerelda, who he has been
trying to see on his days off.
Esmerelda likes where Gardner keeps her in flowers, but she needs the Outies (humans) to be able to hear her sing and that takes all of her spare time.
In the meantime, Ember, Granny Flare's apprentice, is mooning over Gardner who has not even noticed her yet (sounds like a Hallmark movie doesn't it?). The things we do for love...
Enjoy your Valentine Day.
