Maggie frowned before twigging what he meant. Huh. Really? Could it be the ring she had been dreaming of? She needed to end this call RIGHT NOW and call Renee. Oh God. Her perfect friend was right, and they hadn’t even got there yet. He was going to ask. He was going to ASK.
‘That sounds nice,’ she squeaked, barely able to lift he voice above a whisper. ‘I’ll message you with the directions. You can’t drive, apparently. There’s a special train.’
Dirk groaned. ‘You can drive anywhere. But if it’ll make you happy, I’ll go mass transit with the rest of the herd. I’ll wear extra aftershave to compensate.’
Berating the poor was another of Renee’s red flags—since, technically, both Maggie and Renee were minimum wage workers—but Maggie ignored it. ‘I can’t wait,’ she gasped, perhaps with a little too much eagerness. ‘It’s going to be the perfect holiday.’
‘Sure, Pretty Pea. Sure it will.’
After hanging up, Maggie rushed to call Renee. Her friend answered briefly to say she was stuck at traffic lights on her way to spend an afternoon playing board games with a disabled lady, but that she’d call back later. Hanging up, Maggie ran in little circles, wishing there was someone else she could call. Her mum would be at work—but she wasn’t too hot on Dirk since his move to London—and none of her other friends would want to know. Instead, she did the only other thing she could think of to settle her nerves.
She went shopping.
Christmas was still a long way off, but she managed to pick up a nice pair of snow boots and a jacket with a fake fur trim which would look nice in the snow days. Walking out of the shop into a warm, sunny afternoon, however, she had a crisis of confidence. It hadn’t snowed in Cambridge over Christmas since she had been a little girl. Sure, Scotland was way farther north, but was it really going to be much different? She’d been watching the weather forecast with interest, and it was still practically beach weather all over the U.K. What was the likelihood that their remote, romantic getaway was a windy shack on a hill somewhere, battered constantly by the driving rain? Images of power cuts and doors that got stuck in the damp and baths with cracks and spiders and weird locals peering in through the windows and—
She shouted so loud at herself that an old lady walking past gave her a bemused glance. Maggie smiled, muttered sorry under her breath, and then did that terribly British thing of talking to herself in quiet tones as though to soften the blow of her sudden outburst. She was working herself up into a panic, she knew it. What happened to being all girl power and feminist and—
Deep breath. He’ll be there. It’ll all be fine.
And it’ll definitely snow.
