Coming November 14, 2023: Christmas with the Cowboy
“Ha, serves you right for laughing at me!” James shouted, balling up a snowball in his hands and threw it at her.
“How would you like one in the face, Mr. Fancy Pants?” Isabelle bent down and began wadding up snow.
“Fancy Pants?” James paused, hands on hips, and sniffed haughtily. “And here I thought you liked my suits, Queenie.”
“Queenie? Now, you’re just making fun of me.” Isabelle threw her snowball and it hit him square in the chest, exploding into his face.
“Oh, you’re in trouble now!” James shouted, chasing her.
Isabelle screeched and took off running. He caught her by the arm and tackled her. They fell into the snow, and James landed on top of her. Isabelle wriggled and squealed as James hovered, the two of them reeling in laughter, trying to control their jagged breaths. A broad smile teased at James’s lips.
“I guess this would be a bad time to ask you out on a date.”
“Some might consider this the perfect time.” She quirked a silly smile and winked.
His cheeks flushed a lovely shade of pink as he rolled into the snow and stood. He held his hand out to her and pulled her up. “Would you like to go on a sleigh ride with me, Isabelle?”
