Valentines Surprises by A Slice of Heaven

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and there’s really no way of escaping it even if you ran away to a galaxy far, far away as the video would have animated. Love, as it turns out, is far more powerful than any Force in the universe, even the dark side is no match for its powers….
