She was wearing a bridesmaid’s dress and holding a leash.
Not the strangest sentence ever uttered.
Unless, perhaps, she included what was on the other end of the leash.
Because she’d been escorted down the aisle by a rooster name Sir Fuzzy McFeatherston, or the Fuzz, for short.
He was cute. He was cocky—ha—and he was not happy to be on a leash.
Thankfully, though, the ceremony was wrapping up. The bride and groom—her best friend, Kate, and her almost-husband, Jaime—were kissing. Soon, she’d be able to put the rooster in the cage, and she could get to drinking.
Because her best friend was getting married.
After an engagement she had promised Heidi would be extremely long but had ended up sort of average because Kate hadn’t been able to wait to make Jaime officially hers.
Heidi loved Kate, loved Jaime, and how he treated Kate.
But she was losing her best friend.
So, yeah, maybe she was feeling a little mopey, but she wasn’t going to let her funk ruin her friend’s night. She was going to be the best rooster-wrangling bridesmaid there was.
Not maid of honor.
Kate hadn’t wanted to hurt Kelsey or Cora’s feelings, the other half of their quad-sized friend group, so they were all bridesmaids, each with a different job.
But that was Kate.
Kind. Sweet. Inclusive. In a word, the absolute best.
That was two, or three, Heidi, supposed, but the point still stood. Kate was awesome and her best friend in the whole world.
And now she was married.
God, they were all growing up. Sniff.
She hated it.
Still, her heart was full, and she sniffed again, dashing away a tear as the officiant declared the newlyweds officially married before they strode down the aisle hand-in-hand.
Heidi followed, striding—hand-in-leash?—with the rooster.
And, well, if that wasn’t an apt description of her dating life . . . she didn’t know what was. She could find a man who wanted to sleep with her—cough, cock—but couldn’t find one with staying power.
“Not the point,” she muttered under her breath, somehow getting herself and Sir Fuzzy McFeatherston safely down the aisle. The rest of the bridal party paired off and followed her.
They snapped some pictures, but eventually the Fuzz got tired of the paparazzi, and Heidi wrestled him into her arms, taking him to the crate Kate had ready for him.
She was just bending to place him inside—while trying to slip off the harness without letting him escape—when she felt someone come up behind her. Assuming it was Kate, she said, “I’m fine, Katie girl. Go enjoyed your husband. I’ve got your”—she giggled, a twelve-year-old at heart—“cock well in hand.”
Silence instead of her friend’s cackling.
Heat stained her cheeks, and Heidi yanked the leash and harness out before slamming and locking the cage. Then she shored her spine and spun around.
Tall. Dark. A smirk on a gorgeous mouth.
One that grew as his gaze
