This was the second time that Lily had entered her name and information into the Blishwick blind date thing. The first time had been for fun; to meet someone interesting and just have fun, despite already having the thing going on with Adrian. He wouldn’t have cared anyways. This time though, was because she felt at a loss of what to do. Getting out and taking her mind off of everything had been the goal for the last few months since getting out of school. There weren’t too many people holding her back either. So the half of paper with her name and interests scribbled on it was sent back to the matchmaking service in order to be set up with a blind date again. The first one had never actually gone through because she had been silly and forgotten about it, despite the intent to go and have fun with a new person. That wasn’t going to happen this time, so she waited patiently for the response back about who she would be going on the date with, and where it would be.
When a new letter came back to her within a few days, it omitted her date’s name. She was however given a time and location, as well as the event that they were going to be completing as part of the whole thing. Kayaking on the Thames. To be honest, she had fully expected to have a sit down dinner at a fancy restaurant or something like that; she always imagined that a first date, especially a blind one, was going to be like that. This was the complete opposite of that though and much more up her alley. Physical activity and teamwork wasn’t only a great way to distract her, but it would be a good in order to learn about her date. Nothing was better than being isolated out in the middle of the water with another person, trying to figure out how to get back to shore. Their specific time was set for night, as it was a nighttime kayak tour. When Lily arrived, there was a guide and a few other people milling about, none of who looked remotely magical. Standing near the back of the group, she assumed that whoever her date was had either already arrived and was looking for her as well, or had yet to show. Eventually they would find each other though, because they had to be in the same kayak, and as far as she could tell, those had already been assigned to the various groups participating.
