Drive-By Valentine by Kimber An
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a cute short story :)
I loved the whole idea!
We start off with Eve driving to an old antique car dealership.
It's the day before Valentine's day and she had over heard her friends placing a bet that she would be home alone instead of with a date. How sad her life had become!
She silently made a bet with herself to find a date.
She drove away to get away from things for a bit, and stopped off a few hours outside of town at a little cafe' . But as soon as soon as she sat down, she broke out in tears. The waitress sat down next to her and let her cry out her story about being alone.
So the waitress told her to go to the antique car dealership. There she will find the one she is suppose to be with..
Or close to it. That's where Eve met Sofia. Sofia is a hunched back old lady who seemed to know more about Eve then Eve even know about herself. She knew that Eve wouldn't find her true love, until she knew what she wanted in a man. Everything Eve had said had been something her mother would have wanted her to have in a man... but Sofia knew better. She knew that wasn't what Eve wanted.
And she was right.. So when Sofia told Eve to dressed in Jeans and a flowered blouse and meet her in front of the hardware store in town the next morning, Eve knew she was in for something special..
Like I said I really loved this story. The sweet little ol' lady didn't claim to be physic , she just claimed to be aware of things, and people. She listened and she knew :)
Perfect light romance story just in time for Valentine's day :)
