Last week, Meredith took charge in getting the Christmas Party ready. Lulu sniffed around the kitchen and got a good brushing and suddenly she jumped onto one of the assistants from downstairs and snuggled under her chin. All the helpers gasped and when Meredith asked what the problem was, someone said the woman was recovering from Cancer. Then Meredith understood once again that Lulu was a special pup she had to keep her one way or the other. She hurried down the elevator for one last Lulu try at her tree. “What a day it had been, what a rare mood she was in, why it was almost like being in love. She hummed the old song, crossed her fingers for good luck when the door burst open. In walked a beaming John Albright, a lovely woman on his arm. “Oh my, she thought. My plan for the boss worked. Now if one works for me, I’ll be thrilled on this Christmas Eve.
“Welcome, everyone and thanks to Meredith for decorating and pulling our party together. Meet my friend, Luellen. I’ve found her and we’re together again after a long time.” They walked away, hand in hand like the lovebirds they once were.
