Did Gotham know it was a holiday? No. He hadn't noticed the hearts anywhere or anything like that. It hadn't occurred to him that his twin had disappeared hours ago. Instead he was just focused on the fact that he had something to give to someone. It hadn't been something he meant to do. But once he started working with the plants outside of the greenhouse, he found the correct plant. He figured it might be good for Izabel. She liked plants. And this one was pretty.
So he had repotted the plant into decorative pot that was in the shape of a dinosaur. It didn't take long for him to find her in their normal area. "Hey Izabel. I know it's not magical, but I thought you might like this." Careful not to injure the plant at all, he presented it to her. Really he hoped she was going to like this. If she didn't, he'd have to figure something else out. He just wanted her to be happy.

looking for sunlight.
Izabel tended to spend most of her time in the Greenhouses. They were a home away from home for her in a literal sense. Over the course of her life, she had had houses, or apartments, but she'd never really had homes until she entered the doors of the Pyne abode. Now, she could also count the castle as a home, of course, and, thirdly, the magnificent structure that contained the plants.
She was usually alone when she wandered around the Greenhouses - not too many students found the plants as interesting as she did, as evidenced by the population of the Herbology club. Sometimes, though, Gotham would just her. After that first day of their meeting, he'd wandered back every so often. Most of the time, they were quiet while the other would work, but sometimes they would talk. It was nice.
It was empty today, though, she noted as she entered the glass building. She'd hoped that maybe Gotham would come down and say hello. She always sort of felt lonely on Valentine's Day, because she never had had anyone to enjoy it with. She wasn't like her brothers, apparently, who just....attracted the beautiful people. She was slightly broken and maybe that scared people.
However, her head snapped up when she heard the door open, and she straightened from the plant she'd been bent over. She moved towards him and smiled brightly, taking in the plant he carried. "Oh, it's for me?" She asked, surprised. She accepted it carefully, studying it, a smile growing on her lips. "Thank you. It's so lovely," She chirped. On a whim, she leaned forward and kissed him on the cheek. Immediately, she withdrew, unsure if she had crossed the line.Oops.

"I couldn't find a dino pot in green. So I hope the orange is okay." Really, he probably could have used magic to fix it. But he wasn't sure he wanted to do it. It was sort of nice to have something sort of off. It wasn't pure Slytherin. It was....happy and he wanted her to be happy. Maybe if she saw it, it would make her happy?
When she kissed him, he paused. This was the first time he actually had someone kiss him. He didn't willingly touch people. But he liked getting to spend time with her. "Thank you. I just wanted you to be happy. I thought you might like it." And he wanted to do something else. Would it be bad if he kissed her back? She'd done it first. But he knew that consent was everything.
"Would it be okay if I...kissed your cheek? And like...maybe held your hand sometime?" Why did he want to touch her? He wasn't really sure, but this was just something.
