Rolling over in bed, she placed her hand on the pillow where he'd laid. If only she hadn't been so damn tired! Last night would've turned out much different! she thought smugly. He'd still be here in her bed and she could...
Damn! She hadn't made plans with him for the day and it was a holiday, so she wouldn't see him at work! Sighing, she threw the covers off and got out of bed. Good going, Mac.
"So what am I going to do today?" she asked herself.
Apparently not, she thought with disgust when she saw the empty park.
Mackenzie shot up out of her chair. "What the hell are you blathering about?" she demanded angrily.
Seamus O'Connell, stepped forward. "Quit your ranting, Fintan. It's upsetting my digestion!" The tall, imposing man said calmly. "This is a matter for the committee."
"The committee?" Fintan scoffed. "As though those old fools would go against the Great O'Connell Leader," he sneered.
"Come, let us take this matter somewhere private to discuss," he said, shooting her an apologetic look as he latched onto Fintan's elbow and lead him away.
Then another thought crept into her mind. Oh God, is that what Breandan thought? She pushed the pieces away from her. Where was he when she needed to talk to him, she silently fumed.
"Am I an abomination?" she demanded, distressed.
"What?! Of course not!" he responded, "Who dared say that to you?!"
"I didn't catch his name, some big blue guy," she said without pausing to take a breath. "He said that I was an abomination and that I would bring curses to Dragon Valley!"
"Ah, that sounds like Fintan," Breandan guessed. "Nobody pays attention to Fintan's rants anymore."
"Breandan, I'm scared. There's going to be a committee hearing about me! What's going on?" she asked.
Mackenzie wanted to believe him. She reached up and held his hand to her face, closing her eyes when the heartache hit.
Mackenzie sighed. "I think you think you can keep me safe. But what if that Fintan manages to get everyone worked up about me?" She paused, fully prepared to end things with him. "Look, I don't want to get you in trouble. Maybe we shouldn't..."
Mackenzie fanned her face. "Well you certainly know how to make a point!"
Mackenzie suddenly realized the heroines in romance novels swooned so much! She felt a little weak in the knees!
"Come on," Breandan said, tugging her arm. "Let's enjoy today and not worry about tomorrow."

*AN: I almost died waiting to see where Breandan was going! He was just strolling down the street without a care, starting near his house. I didn't have a wish to invite him over or have an outing, so I didn't have a way of getting him to the park with Mac! And then, just as I thought he was going to pass by the park, he glanced over towards the park and crossed the street. SQUEE! He headed straight for Mackenzie and started flirting with her. YES! I was so ridiculously happy!
