I'm working this New Year's Eve. That suits me fine since I'm a little sad that the man of my dreams, Holmes Richardson, has left to spend New Year's Eve with his fiancé in Chicago. I know, I know. I may not be perfect or brilliant, but I am very sensible. I pride myself on being down-to-earth. I have never been one of those women who wail over men.
But ever since I moved back to Wagtail Mountain and ran into Holmes, I cannot get him out of my mind. It doesn't matter that we were childhood friends or that he was my first crush. But every time I see him I get a little tingly and giddy. It doesn't matter that our grandmothers are best friends. Or that I think he wants to move back to Wagtail. This just isn't like me at all!
I'm not the type to chase after someone else's boyfriend, let alone some else's fiance! But I get a little sick to my stomach when I think about another woman getting a kiss from Holmes at midnight.
Our grandmothers have arranged for a matchmaking event in Wagtail. Complete with a professional matchmaker! Participants are supposed to bring their cats and dogs to help them make matches. I just don't have the heart to participate. On the other hand, Holmes is engaged and I should accept that. Right?
What do you think? Should I keep hoping that Holmes will break off his engagement? Or should I participate in Animal Attraction and try to meet someone else?
