Girl’s Night, woot! Every now and then I need a night out with my girls. But for us, the nights are usually pretty low key. Sometimes it’s a book club meeting. Maybe it’s dinner out. Or if there’s some good man candy on the big screen, we may just take in a movie. Every time, I find it so hard to leave my kids, even though I know they are happy at home with dad. But when I get home later, I feel refreshed and relaxed!
In FALLING FOR YOU, Cassidy and Paige have an impromptu girl’s night in when tensions are high and they fear Paige is on the verge of going home. Here’s a little excerpt!
Cassidy and Paige walked into the kitchen. As Paige got comfortable on the stools beside the kitchen island, Cassidy found a bottle of champagne in the fridge and a couple of glasses. She filled them and handed one to Paige.
“Champagne? Does my humiliation make you feel like celebrating?”
“Don’t be silly, Paige. We’re going to celebrate this experience and our friendship, which we wouldn’t have had without coming here and sacrificing our dignity for the betterment of American television.”
Cassidy and Paige clinked their glasses and polished off the champagne in one shot. “How ’bout another?”
“You certainly know how to put a positive spin on things.”
“I know this is hard, Paige, but coming here was about more than just meeting Brad, right? It’s about the experience, too. Just because Brad is too stupid to see what an awesome girl you are, doesn’t mean the whole thing was a waste.”
“I guess you’re right. I just really wanted to fall in love, ya know?”
“I know. But you can’t fall in love unless it’s the right guy, and maybe Brad isn’t him. I bet Mr. Right is out there now, shaking his head at the TV, wondering how Brad could be so stupid to let you go and thanking his lucky stars he’ll get a chance with you.”
“I hope you’re right,” Paige said, emptying her second glass in one last gulp of champagne. “Maybe I’ll take a refill up to my room to help me pack.”
“Who said anything about packing? You don’t know you’re going home.”
“Call it a hunch or intuition or whatever. But I feel like I’m definitely going home.” Paige sighed and put her head in her hands. “Honestly, I’m ready to go home. I don’t think my ego can stand another round in the bottom three.”
“You want help packing?”
“Sure, if you don’t have anything better to do.”
Spending quality time kissing Evan was out of the question since he was still acting pissy toward her. Hanging out with Paige sounded exactly like what she needed right now. Cassidy grabbed the bottle of champagne. “It could be a long night of packing. We might need refreshments.”
Do you ever head out for a girl’s/boy’s night out?
