Summary: After one too many bad
setups, Emma thinks the best way to get out of another blind date is to tell
her sister-in-law she already has a boyfriend. But when her brother makes the
assumption she’s dating Killian Jones, Emma just might need a Christmas miracle
to pull it off.

“So I know you really didn’t like August all that much, but I was thinking–”
“No.” Emma glares across the table at her sister-in-law, trying – and failing – to keep from brandishing her fork like a club. “No more Christmas party blind dates.”
“I know the last few–”
“Seriously? Mary Margaret, he was gay. You set me up with a guy who doesn’t even like women. The one before him turned out to be a skip. The one before him was Ruby’s ex.” Emma ticks them off one at a time on her fingers, her irritation only growing as she relives each horrible date. “So this year, I’m saying no. Absolutely not.”
“What have you got to lose?” Mary Margaret asks, completely undeterred by Emma’s protest.
“I already have a boyfriend!” Emma blurts out, reaching for her glass of wine and taking a large gulp to hide the lie. It’s the only thing she can think of to shut Mary Margaret up, since her brother is sitting uselessly next to his wife with an amused look on his face – amusement she is pleased to note disappears the moment she makes her announcement.
I’m really happy. He’s an amazing player I really enjoy to play with and we’ve created a lot of chemistry over the years. I was getting a little worried now with him playing with Sid,” Bergeron said with a laugh. “I’m really happy it’s done and we can move forward for himself and also for us as a team. I can’t say enough about him. It’s well deserved and he’s an amazing player.
