Kearney's face fell in disappointment. "I'd hoped to say goodbye to her this morning," he admitted.
"Aw," Nuala sighed whimsically. "How romantic!" She waved her hands and fanned her face. "I'm so sorry! I can't help it! I'm a Cancer sign!" she told him. "I get so emotional!"
"Nuala?" a sultry voice called out from the entryway. "Are you there?"
Ellen peeked her head around the corner and saw Kearney. She grinned, batting her eyelashes. "Well hello there," she teased.
Kearney looked back at Nuala with confusion. "I thought you said Enya had gone out to meet Ellen?" he asked.
Nuala nibbled her bottom lip and stammered an excuse before hurrying away.
Ellen dismissively waved her hand. "Oh, we already met. She went to the Practice Pit to work out." She sent him a flirtatious look. "I'd rather get all hot and sweaty other ways..." she said while leaning forward slightly to give him a view of her ample cleavage.
Kearney gulped and tore his eyes from her chest. "Well, I'd breast be going.. I mean.. best..." he emphasized, correctly his slip. He couldn't leave the room fast enough.
Mackenzie smiled, "Mm, that sounds wonderful," she told him as she passed little Holly O'Shea into his arms. "You take such good care of me," Mackenzie told him sleepily. "I love you."
Breandan kissed her forehead. "I love you, too."
Mackenzie waved off his concerns. "I took a nap! I feel better!" she promised. "I didn't want to miss the Gift Giving party!"
Breandan smiled like a little boy at the mention of gifts. "The party is set to begin at 3 pm. I was going to wake you before everyone showed up!"
Enya put her hand on his hip and frowned. "Are you ashamed of me then?" she demanded.
"No!" he argued. "But, it will look bad if are together since I am higher ranking than you."
Breandan looked at the flowers as though they would bite his nose off. "Oh, there's no need," he stammered. "Let's just put them on that table over there."
Nuala frowned. Wasn't it customary to give the host a flower arrangement?
"Who is she?" she whispered to Kearney. "And why is she looking at me?"
Kearney followed her gaze and smiled.
Breandan returned her look which told her that he would haul her from the room that minute if they didn't have guests over.
But, everyone greed that Kearney had thrown an epic party!
Breandan had glanced between the two and raised an eyebrow. "Nice to meet you, Enya."
Enya avoided his gaze. "Nice to meet you," she responded, almost shyly.
"Mackenzie!" Breandan called from the doorway. "The mistletoe?" he asked with a wink
Mackenzie laid Holly to bed and eagerly joined her husband in the other room.

I'm still waiting to see if Kearney will settle down with Enya. I don't have faith in him right now since he's been rolling wants for all different girls! Lol - invite Shannon over, woohoo with Enya, find out Nuala's sign, be friends with Ellen! Goodness gracious! He's either a player or he's absolutely oblivious. :)
