Celeste quickly glanced at Mark and he looked surprised to say the least. His lips were parted slightly and his eyes were open wide. 

“I’ll leave you two to chat.” His Great Aunt looked very please with herself and picked up one of her many bags. “We can talk more later.”

The three shared an awkward silence for a moment as she shuffled away.

Once she was out of earshot, Jinju spoke up.

“I’m really sorry about this.” She bowed formally again. “It’s all my fault. I told her that I broke up with my boyfriend and that I was hoping to start a new relationship soon so she took it upon herself to match me up with you.”

“It’s fine. I get it.” Mark nodded at her. “Once she gets her mind set on something set on something it’s difficult to get her to changer her mind. I’m going to introduce her to my girlfriend though,” Mark reached over and wrapped a protective arm around Celeste. “So hopefully she’ll let up.”

Jinju looked relieved. “I hope so. This whole matchmaking this is awkward and it makes me feel really uncomfortable.” She turned toward her. “I don’t believe I caught your name. My name is Jinju.”

“I’m Celeste.” She held out her hand and they shook hands.”It’s nice to meet you!”

“Nice you meet you, too.” Jinju smiled at them before turning slightly and gesturing to the lodge. “I’m going to go grab my skis and head up the mountain. You two should unpack and go get settled. I’m sorry again about this whole thing.”

They said there good byes and headed opposite directions.

Celeste sighed. “Thank god. I was so scared she would actually want to try to get together with you. It looks like she doesn't like this just as much as you do.”

“Yeah. I’m glad she’s not. That would have made this whole thing a lot harder.” Mark sighed. “I wasn’t expecting her to actually bring one of the girls with her.”

“‘One’? Damn, Mark. How many girls has she tried to hook you up with?”

He paused as if to think about it before saying, “I don’t know. I lost count around 50.”

“Holy shit really?”

Mark said nothing but his pained expression told her what she needed to know.

“Aw, poor Mark. To many cute girls for his poor heart to handle.”

“We should get going.” He picked up his suitcase as he tried to change the subject. “It’s cold and you’re not wearing the right clothes for this kind of weather.”

“My clothes are perfect for this weather and don’t you try to change the subject.”
