Jeri lives in Hobart where she owns a gallery. Since her divorce, many years ago, she's finally ready to "be" with a man again. But finding the right one seems to be harder than she thought.
Jeri nearly melted into a puddle despite trying her best to be annoyed with Ely. But with him so close, his mouth nearly touching her face, her pulse went into overdrive.
Shaking her head, she grabbed her phone and dialled Olivia’s number.
“Sweetie, I need you to come over. I’ve got a burst pipe here with water everywhere.”
“Are you kiddin’?” Olivia replied.
Jeri rolled her eyes. “Kidding would be something along the line: your blind date showed up here this morning.”
There was a loud sigh at the other end of the line. “I know. I owe you big time for that.”
“Good. Get your behind into gear and come over. Bring you mum as well.”
“Do you have someone look at the pipe?”
Jeri fumbled with the mop. “Sweetie, honestly. I have half the gallery under water and you want to chit chat? Of course I have organised a plumber.”
She hung up, smiled, and got started with the mopping.
Thank you all for your support and kind comments.
I do appreciate each single one of them!
