Today’s story follows Questionable Ladies of Shallot. It should stand alone, but you might enjoy a little backstory. Smiles and Blushes
Whoever invited Zach to this shindig needs to be excommunicated.
He’s been all smiles and blushes and how-do-you-do since he pulled me out of the river, like he doesn’t know he’s supposed to fall in love with Molly.
He jogs to join me at the maze entrance. “Wanna race?”
“Only if one of us can get lost.” I’ll pummel him if he follows me into the maze, but he chooses the other entrance. Maybe if I sit down in the middle, he’ll leave without me, but I won’t lose to that pompous —
“Good run, Nora. We tied.” He extends his hand, all smiles and blushes and how-do-you-do.
