Ash has been set up on a blind date that is quickly going wrong. Can the night be salvaged by the unexpected help of a good friend?
There were a lot of things Ash had put up with over the years. She’d put up with rude subway passengers complaining about her quills. She had dealt with hecklers at her shows. And Lance had supplied her with more than enough headaches that she could care to remember. She even had been promised the chance of winning 100,000 dollars only to find out it was a scam, followed by a near death experience with almost drowning inside of the Moon theater.
All of that was nothing compared to what she was going through tonight.
Ever since Mr. Moon announced to the audience that she had been dumped by her boyfriend, her Aunt Ruth - a loving, but rather nosy porcupine who lived in the suburbs - made it her sole mission to get her niece back into the dating game by finding her a proper boyfriend. Ruth was part of a large knitting group that met every week. During one meeting, she had shared with her fellow knitters that her poor niece was nursing a broken heart and needed to find a knight in shinning armor to help her recover from her recent bout with depression. Ruth’s friends were more than happy to ask their many nephews, neighbors, and whomever they felt eligible to court the lovely porcupine…despite Ash’s numerous attempts to tell them it wasn’t necessary and she’d rather not get back into the dating game at this point.
