Maureen smiled and said, "Sounds good to me. Let's go get some."

After several hours at the local department store, coming back to the Motel and hanging lights

Maureen and Horace stood back to look at the Motel and Maureen smiled, with a single tear coming into view. "It looks wonderful. Thank you so much, Horace for helping set up everything." She started to twist the tip of her shoe into the ground, having her nervousness start to show. "Is.. Is it ok..." she started to stutter out. "Is it ok if I give you a hug?"

"You're welcome Maureen." He smiled and said, "Of course you can." He leaned in, wrapped his arm around her and pulled her in tightly. "I'll always be happy to help." He continued..."And it really does look wonderful." He put his other arm around her and continued to embrace her.

Maureen smiled as Horace wrapped his arms around her. For the first time since Daddy died, she hadn't felt the warmness of another person embracing her. She wrapped her arms around him and closed her eyes. Maureen breathed in his light cologne scent and tears came to her eyes: it was the exact same cologne Daddy wore. She could never forget that smell for the rest of her life. She looked up at Horace and said, "Your cologne. It's the same that my Daddy used to wear." And she gave Horace a quick kiss on the cheek, let go of him and turned around, starring at the ground.

"Really?...wow" he replied. He paused for a moment "...I didn't know" He walked up besides her. "You're crying though." He said while he put his hand on her shoulder. "I.. I'm sorry...should I not wear it?" he asked.

"No.. no," she said, wiping the tears away from her cheeks. "It's ok. I just never expected to smell it again. You're ok with wearing it." She placed her hand on his and intertwined her fingers with his. "I'll be fine. But thanks for giving me something to remind me of him." And she placed her head under his chin. "C'mon. Let's go in the office and make some hot chocolate. I'm getting a little cold standing out here."

"Ok." He said and rubbed her shoulder. "When you said that, I was afraid you weren't going to like being reminded of him constantly. But, if you say so, I wont worry about it." He went on, "Let's go inside" Still holding her hand, they began walking back to the office together... It was nice to get out of the cold. He turned his head toward her and asked, "You want to sit down, Maureen and I'll make it?"

Maureen smiled and said, "Ok. But let me get the cups. They're kinda shoved under the back of the front desk, I think." She opened the cabinet and started looking towards the back while Horace got the hot chocolate ready. In a few minutes, Maureen found them. "Ah, here they are. Shoved all the way back in the corner." She blushed a little as she brought the cups over to Horace. "I can usually keep things organized but when it comes to doing stuff in the parlor and then needing to clean up quickly, it's seems so easy to just throw stuff in there and then I totally forget about it." She went and washed the cups in the sink and handed them to Horace. He filled them and they both sat down on the couch, snuggling to keep warm.

He chuckled, "It's ok, I can be the same way it comes to cleaning up sometimes." He took a sip of cocoa, it was perfect on a chilly day like this. He wrapped his arm around Maureen's shoulders and tilted his head, gently resting it against hers. "Now if we just had a fire to sit by, this would be perfect." He joked and laughed. "No, sitting with you will do just fine though." "Actually, I never would have pictured this. Would you?" He asked. "...I mean, I had a good feeling I would fit in and we would get along, but I never woulda guessed we'd be snuggled up on the couch with cocoa." "But, I'm glad it worked out this way."
