She'd made quite an impression on her tattoo artist, who had told her anytime she wanted another tattoo to come back and see him. She suspected when he tucked his card in the top of her swimsuit halter that he'd been fishing for a date.
Who knew... maybe she would take him up on his offer...
Marigold rolled her eyes as she came into the room. "Oh Plumbbob, not the stupid unicorn story again," she said snidely. "Daisy, there's no such thing as unicorns!"
Marigold sniffed and turned on her heel, marching away in a blur of affront.
I always love making new friends. Especially when they're as beautiful as you. Call me sometime. - Brien
Violet smiled widely, taking her voice down to a seductive pitch. "Hey, this is Violet," she said somewhat nervously.
"I don't know a Violet," the terse voice responded, clearly annoyed to be bothered.
Violet stood up straight, surprised, "From the personals," she explained hastily, just in case he hung up.
There was a pause.
"Ah, Violet," he answered smoothly, all traces of annoyance or terseness had dissipated. "You got my message!"
Violet relaxed. Clearly he'd just forgotten her name, that was all. "Yeah, it's me. I was wondering if you want to meet up for coffee or something."
"I'm looking forward to it," he answered. "2 pm. At the McCafferty's Pub."
He was clearly used to making decisions and having them followed. But, Violet didn't care. She was going to meet Brien O'Connell!!
Mackenzie chuckled under her breath. "I should get me one of these for myself! It's so much fun!"
Mackenzie sighed. Who knew teenagers were that sensitive?!
Or not, Kearney thought as he excused himself.
"Look, about last time..." Slate began somewhat nervously, cracking his knuckles and appearing ill-at-ease.
Slate lowered his voice. "It wasn't whatever to me," he said.
"Too bad. I didn't come here for you," she answered, ignoring the thrill that went through her at his husky words. "I'm meeting someone..."
Slate reared back, surprise written all over his face. "You're meeting..."
I only had moments to feel slightly guilty when I heard that smooth voice behind me. "Veronica!" Brien said in greeting.
"Well, you're not too bad yourself," I cooed, tapping his chiseled upper arms, checking out Slate's reaction from the corner of my eye. "Looks like you work out a lot!"
Inside the salon, Mom & Daughter treated themselves to a mani/pedi, just in time for Marigold's upcoming Prom dance. She wanted to feel ultra feminine and pretty!
Violet looked at the pretty red drinks, rimmed with sugar with little heart drink stirrers. "Aw! Those are so cute! You should have made these for me before!"
Slate just glared at her.
"You bet," he replied, knocking back the entire drink.
Glancing down at her phone, she realized it was getting close to party-time. Her best friend, Maria, had recently moved in with her boyfriend and wanted to show-off her new place.
"Hey, you wanna go with me to a party?" Violet asked.
Brien shrugged, "I thought we'd find something together alone, but I guess I'm game."
Marigold poked her head in the room, "Aren't you going to get ready?"
"For what?" Keely asked, carefully pouring the liquid.
"PROM, silly!" Marigold shook her head with disgust. How could Keely forget PROM, of all things!
Marigold really made a good impression on Eam with some epic dance moves. She was deemed Prom Queen. She thanked everyone and started talking about how what she really wants is world peace.
Daisy was looking forward to seeing her crush at the dance, but he spent the entire time ignoring her.
Keely had a mishap on the dance floor and feel flat on her face.
At first Violet hadn't minded, in fact she was looking forward to fooling around. But, now, she just felt dirty. Besides, she was pretty sure he wasn't thinking long-term. He kept calling for Veronica, for Plumbbob's sake!
Maria pointed, "Upstairs and to the right." Her eyes widened when she saw Brien.
"What?" she mouthed.
"I'll tell you later," Violet mouthed back.
"Violet!" he greeted her with that wicked smile of his. "Nice to see you again."
She turned on her heel and hurried to the bathroom. She was still mad at him. The big jerk.
Maria glanced over when she made it down the stairs and made a shooing motion to Niall. "I'll just be over there if anyone needs me," she announced loudly before hurrying away.
"Damn right you do," Violet interrupted with her hand on her hip.
Pretending she hadn't spoken, he pulled out a bouquet of red roses and thrust them towards her.
Violet stared at the roses in her hand. "You got me flowers?" Violet gushed. "Omigod, you got me flowers?!"
"Yeah, I did," Niall said abashed. "So, do you forgive me?"
"Uh, okay? What do you have in mind?" he asked.
"Just come with me!" I told him, slinging my jacket on and heading for the door.
"Who cares? Do you want me to go home with him?" I called over my shoulder.
Holding his face in my hands, I kissed him passionately. "I was wrong the other night, too," I told him.
Niall looked so adorable when he was confused. "What...?" he asked, still reeling from making out.
I put my finger against his lips. "I said I wasn't ready to go all the way, but I am..."
"You are?" he repeated dumbly.

AN: Mackenzie has been going around and picking fights with everyone. She's apparently in a bad mood. I gave her a cane and she's been having fun harassing people! Naughty Mackenzie!
This update really wound up being about Violet! Lol. I couldn't believe I forgot about Marigold & Mackenzie at the spa! They'd almost finished their twin igloos! But, Violet was the only one with wishes I could actively finish! Plus, I had to see what happened with Brien. I nearly died when she went upstairs and saw Niall. Soon after, Brien announced he was headed to work and left. He must have felt uncomfortable around her friends. Niall managed to save the day by giving her a big bouquet of roses. What girl wouldn't want to woohoo in an igloo after that? Right? ... err...
Right! HUGE prom! Only Marigold impressed the guy she was dancing with - Eam, of course! They are now romantic interests.
