Yes, I thought, I can help you with whatever you need, just look at me like that every day for the rest of my life.
“What can I do for you?” I asked, sure my cheeks were turning red.
Then he smiled, and two dimples appeared.
Seriously? I looked around the store for hidden cameras. Were my sisters playing tricks on me? This guy could not be real. Or any more adorable.
“I know it’s last minute, but I have an emergency. I need to hire you to cater my daughter’s ninth birthday party.”
And, there it was… the punchline. Mr. Adorable Dimples was married with a family.
I looked down at his ringed finger, smothered my disappointment, and gave him an apologetic smile.
“I’m sorry, we don’t do children’s parties.”
When his face fell, I wanted to snatch the words back.
“We just don’t have those types of decorations on hand,” I added, hoping to soften the rejection. “There’s a party supply store around the block, I’m sure they’ll have what you need.”
He shook his head and I tilted my head back to get a better look at him. Damn, he was really tall.
“I wish it were that simple. Kayla’s outgrown the kind of birthday party I could give her. If we were still talking about Frozen, I could turn our living room into a winter wonderland and decorate the shit out of it,” he winced and said, “Sorry,” and I assumed he was talking about swearing. Which, jeez, could he get any cuter.
“What does she want?” I asked, even though I knew I should send him on his way and get back to work. I found I didn’t want him to leave yet.
I was such a brat.
“A tea party,” he replied, making tea party sound like a bad word. “I’ve never even had a drop of tea, let alone made an entire party out of it.”
I bit back a chuckle at his obvious distress, and asked, “Can’t your wife help?”
His face looked pained, then he let out a sigh and said, “She, uh, left us, almost a year ago. We haven’t heard from her since, so… no, I’m on my own with this one.”
