It's fascinating how different this story is from another angle! Thanks, Eleanore.
I was rather worried that it would be quite dull to have it repeated when everyone already knows how it ends! I'm glad to know you think it works :)

*volunteers for cuddling both of them*
I do love that we get this story twice, from both of their perspectives. And I'm looking forward to what happens next!
Given what a mess they've managed to get themselves in with just the two of them, I don't think it's a good idea to let other people start cuddling them, it might just send the pair of them over the edge with jealousy! Wait until they get themselves sorted out before you start doling out cuddles ;)
I'll try and get the next update done a little more quickly than this one!

Oh these two are good at tying themselves in knots ! Poor Nancy though, trying to convince herself it's not to be. Thanks another lovely update.
Glad you liked it :) I thought that I felt more sorry for Kathie than Nancy in this situation, but now I'm thinking that Nancy's the one who deserves the most sympathy! I don't know whether I want to cuddle the pair of them, or yell at them for making everything so complicated!

Oh, dear... Poor Kathie & Nancy. I just want to bang their heads together.
Thanks Eleanore :-D
I know - I want to sit them down and force them to talk to each other, rather than trying to guess at what the other one is thinking! I hope they get better at reading each other, because at the moment they really suck at it!

Lovely update - and so true in that "are they, aren't they, is it a hint they are interested, is it not?"
Also so true about that feeling of needing to give someone the present even if you can't admit that it is from you. Bless. I really do love your Nancy and Kathie, Eleanore, they are so real. Thank you. :-)
At least we know that Kathie does get her present :)

I do, indeed, absolutely love this. But it's also so heartbreaking! Thank you - and thank you also for writing WMK before you wrote this, so I know it's all going to turn out lovely in the end!
Thanks, jayj, I'm glad you like it :) I'm hoping to update this sooner rather than later, now I've given in and let Nancy decide what we write about ;)

Oh bless her! I love the detail about the present wrapping! It's both funny and poignantly sweet! Thank you for updating.
I always think Nancy is quite sweet :) I could just see her taking extra care over Kathie's present and then realising how much it would give her away. I'm glad you liked it :)

ooooooh I do like seeing the other side of this ! Lol to Nancy wrapping and unwrapping, and swopping being hostess. Thank you
The wrapping so wasn't where I thought this chapter would go - I'd planned to write about why Sharlie got invited and Kathie didn't, but then Nancy went off on a tangent about wrapping paper. I'd spent weeks trying to get her to talk about inviting Sharlie, and she wouldn't cooperate, so I figured it was better to let her talk about whatever she wanted, as at least that way I'd have an update to post!

Am also hoping for more as I have only just found these stories and had a thoroughly pleasant time reading them!
Thank you, I'm so glad you like them :) I'm hoping to have a marathon writing session this weekend - not sure quite which ones will be updated, but hopefully I'll be adding to at least a couple of them :)

oohh, I just want to give the pair of them a cuddle and tell them it's going to be alright, soon...I am wibbling quite a lot about what Nancy's going to make of Kathie's attempt to flee the room, though. More please!

How brilliant to get this from both sides! Lol to the not wanting to be in constant physical contact with people ! Sympathise with Nancy for that, so many people seem to have tiny personal spaces, and poor Nancy wondering why Kathy wants to get away. Yay yay yay for getting this side too. * sits down happily and waits (patientishly) for more. *
