For Sale: One Smokin’ Hot Jeep

Isabel Beebe and her boyfriend Ford Hendrix are standing in line at the counter of Brew-haha Coffee Shop.

“What’s that?” Isabel asks, pointing to a corkboard on the back wall.

“I’m trying something new,” says Patience McGraw, Brew-haha’s owner. “An old-fashioned community bulletin board. I thought it’d be a great place for people to post little announcements, job openings, whatever.”

One flyer in particular catches Isabel’s gaze, a Jeep, black with flames painted on the sides.

“You can’t sell the Jeep!” she exclaims to Ford.

“I thought you’d be happy. You always make fun of it.”

“Of course I make fun of it. It’s a silly car! But I love your silly car. I love that you don’t take yourself too seriously.” She stalks over to the bulletin board, tears down the flyer, and presses it into his chest. “We’re going to drive away from our wedding in that silly thing, me in my wedding dress and you in your tux.”

A smile creases his face as he leans down to kiss her. “I see you’ve given this some thought.”

From a nearby table, Noelle Perkins, owner of the Christmas Attic on 4th Street, sighs and says, “I want to fall in love.”

“You will,” Patience assures her. “And soon. I can feel it.”

Noelle will fall in love in CHRISTMAS ON 4TH STREET (October 2013).
