It was just another day at the bookstore but some days tend to have moments that shock you. Chris was surprised to see both Chris and Hunter walk into the bookstore that day. Think the main reason that he was surprised was because he didnt know that they knew each other. He always thought that Kayla would have her own friends in New York but it was surprising that she had friends in town besides him. Chris thought that since Hunter moved here after Kayla left for New York that they would be the one person who Kayla wasnt connected to in Lakehart.
“Hey Chris. I was just telling Hunter that my friend Sierra was coming down to look at possible venues for her wedding.” Kayla stated.
Chris was surprised that one of Kaylas friends were coming to see the town. He didnt know how people in the big city did things but he didnt understand why someone would want to come check out a small town like Lakehart. Especially when there were so many wedding venues in New York.
“I know that look Chris.” Kayla started. “Sierra doesn't live in New York fully. She met her finance back in her small town. They want to see if Lakehart is a place that they not only want to get married but settle down and start their own family.”
“Dont sweat it. They are more than welcome to come check things out. I know we will all show that hospitality that we are known for. Knowing you, they will be so tired of Mr Taco that they will more than likely be wanting to go back home.” Chris stated.
There were things that Chris wanted to know more about. Like Kaylas life in New York. Even though it might be a long shot, this was the first time that Kayla mentioned anything or anyone about her life in New York. Even though things were different for the both of them, he still wanted nothing more than to get to know this Kayla again. Because he knew that this Kayla was a more involved version of the Kayla that was left behind. Reconnecting was something that it seemed like the both of them wanted. Especially with Kayla being back on a much more permanent bases. If she hadn't left, Chris wondered if that would have made a difference in their relationship? Chris knew with the million other questions that he had that he didnt want an answer. Sometimes not knowing was better than actually knowing. Even though this wouldnt always be the case, Chris enjoyed how things were going with Kayla right now.
Chris knew that sooner or later Kayla would let him in on whatever it was that she was hiding away. Just by looking at her, Chris knew that Kayla was debating with something. Chris found it surprising that someone like Barbra Starr wasnt gossiping about whatever she had on Kayla. Weather it was good or bad, Barbra couldnt help herself but to gossip over whatever it was. Chris was happy that Barbra wasnt going tell him what she overheard but it irritated him at the same time. It irritated him because it was something that he relied on from Barbra to tell the town the latest news that she had heard. Even if it came from someone else in town and they asked her to keep it to themselves. This was something that Chris wondered about. Why all of a sudden did Barbra decide to turn over a new leaf when she was always known as the town gossip. But Chris hoped whatever the reason, Barbras new ways were here to stay.
He could always tell that Kayla was excited about the bookstore. Whenever she came in, her eyes would light up with the “I'm going to find a new adventure today.” Chris somehow knew that Kayla would find that adventure one way or another. It was something that he loved about her.
