The girls were very happy to see each other again!
Sophie took Chloé home to meet her family. She had warned her brother not to try any “moves” on Chloé. She’s a guest, Emmett… So far, he seemed to behave. Not too surprising if you know there was probably some other girl on his mind…
Sophie took Chloé up to her room to show her display of Sandy Valley pictures.
And had to confess she actually spent quite a bit of time looking at Jérémy‘s picture. 😉
Of course, Sophie took Chloé around town, starting at Claire’s bookshop; The Book Case.
Then they had coffee at the Gypsy Cart.
While the girls were having fun, Sophie’s brother had his own plans.
Remember how the Wilsons had a burglar last month? And how Emmett kicked his behind? And how the female police officer gave him a compliment for it? Right. Well, that lady was Abbey Atkins. Emmett liked what he saw and decided to give miss Abbey a call and ask her out.
The fact that he took her to an empty bistro (it was a slow night at Foster’s) doesn’t seem like a great start, but Abbey still seemed happy enough.
But this…. might not have been a great move, Emmett…?
Nope, see, told you so…
Abbey wasn’t amused by Emmett’s plans. He tried to smooth things over by giving her his winning smoldering gaze…
…but Abbey is not like the girls Emmett is used to going out with and a stare is not likely to win this girl over.
She broke off the date. Emmett was left astounded. She. broke. off. the. date. Wow. No girl ever broke off a date with Emmett. Quite the contrary. He usually had trouble shaking them off after he was done with them. It was clear this lady was something else…
Back to Sophie and her guest!
Of course the exchange also meant Chloé would join Sophie at school. Maths proved to be difficult at The Beehive.
Break times were more fun though!
After school the girls visited the tearoom/shop; The Tea Cosy. Chloé bought a book with lovely brownie recipes. The girls also had something to giggle about again. (They kept sharing secrets and giggling, these two)
After tea, the girls visited the boutique for some clothes shopping.
Chloé tried to explain to Sophie what she was looking for…
…but it seems they couldn’t find it.
When the girls wanted to go home, it had started to rain, so they took a taxi.
Back home, Chloé, who loves cooking, asked if she could cook for the family.
Sophie watched her friend as she cooked. Since Sophie can’t cook at all, this was a perfect moment to learn something.
The family enjoyed the dinner very much.
Parker thanked his guest for the great meal.
The girls had so much fun together, the weeks flew by! Before long, Chloé’s last night in Honeycomb Valley had arrived. They said goodbye with pizza! Chloé felt the place looked quite familiar. But hey, all these Italian restaurants look alike, right? 😉
And it was time to say goodbye. Bye bye Chloé, we hope you had fun and we’ll see each other again soon!
