Our heroine is preparing to check out of the hospital, but not before meeting the hockey player whose life she had inadvertently saved. It's a 'thank you' lunch date.
Heather sat beside her and gently placed an arm around her. "Sweetie, I know the last four years have been hell, but are you sure that trying to bag a hockey player is the right solution?" [After four years of hell, even I might consider bagging a hockey player.]
Christina sighed. "Heather, don't you know me? I haven't been trolling for husbands since Reggie died, and I'm not about to start now. It's just lunch. I owe him at least that much." [If she saved his life, I'd say it's he who owes her at least lunch."]
"But why now? [Why not wait another four years?] You haven't been remotely interested in dating anyone, much less a hormone-stuffed hockey player. [It's just lunch. Weren't you listening?] Why this guy?" [Why him? Because he's the guy whose life she saved. Also, he's stuffed with hormones. Heather can be so dense.]
With a wan smile, Christina said, "I think it was the way he looked at Mishayla. He looked at her with respect, and she's only six years old. [You better hope that was respect.] It was as if he saw her future."
Her sister laid a reassuring hand on her cheek. "Whatever you do, just be careful." [You know how untrustworthy hockey players are.] She stood. "Speaking of [the] future, if Mr. Wonderful doesn't show up soon, I'm driving you home now." [If he doesn't show up soon, I'm driving you home now? Is this character supposed to be hilarious?] She headed for the door.
Too much "As you know, Christina."
Heather seems over the top. Agreeing to have lunch with a hockey player whose life you saved is hardly the same as trying to bag him. And Heather's too protective, considering Christina's had four years to recover. And she doesn't pay attention to Christina's side of the conversation. Not sure if the problem is with the character or her dialogue.
