1.5- Match Made

While taking a break from her gardening, Mia was approached by a young woman. “Hello, are you Mia Sweeney?” She sat down. “That’s me.” Mia smiled.

“Oh, wow. I’ve been wanting to meet you since you moved here. I’m Brooklyn.”

The two of them talked for a long while and Mia found out a fair bit about Brooklyn. She talked about how she had a passion for art and how, at times, she could be a little gloomy. Mia listened intently and realised that she may have found the woman for Gavin.

“Hey, are you single?” Mia asked.

“Erm.. Yeah, I am.. But I’m not really into girls..”

Mia laughed. “Oh neither am I. But I actually know someone who might be perfect for you. I can introduce you if you’d like?”

A grin stretched across Brooklyn’s face. “That would be great!”

Brooklyn stood up. “I should probably get going, but I’m free at 2:00 if that works?”

“I’ll see what I can do,” Mia waved. “See you later.”

Later that day, Mia invited Gavin and Brooklyn over and introduced them. “Brooklyn, this is Gavin.” Brooklyn stared at the man with a big smile on her face.

“Hi, it’s nice to meet you,” Gavin gave her a little wave but was yet to look at her.

“I’ll leave you two to get to know each other.” Mia stood up and left the table. She had a feeling it was going to be difficult enough for Gavin to relax without her hovering over them.

“Wait, where are you going?” Gavin looked frightened.

“Oh, I’m sure she is too busy with her Mayor duties to babysit us, Gavin.” Brooklyn smiled, making Gavin feel more at ease.

“Yeah, I guess you’re right.”

Gavin and Brooklyn seemed to really hit it off. Once Gavin got over his initial shyness, he couldn’t stop staring at the beautiful woman next to him. She looked like she was enjoying the attention as well. Every now and then, Mia would peek outside to see how they were going. She decided it was a match well made. They seemed smitten.

Eventually, it had to end. Gavin had a lot of work to do, especially considering he had lots of inspiration for his next book. The date must have gone swimmingly, as Brooklyn couldn’t stop staring at Gavin as he bounced away. “It’s up to them now,” Mia whispered to herself. Her job was done.
