Happily ever after. These three words annoyed Anita Vasquez to no end. For most women, they summoned images of sunsets over tropical beaches, strolling hand in hand with some handsome masculine perfection. For Anita, as the director of a very popular dating service, these three words were a curse, one that infected the minds of the women she tried to find compatible matches for. Before they even sat down in her office, they already wanted the impossible. It was enough to drive someone crazy, so it was time to take a break from all of that. This Fairhaven Park was a nice enough area, but most importantly it was off the grid. No one would be able to bug her or get under her skin. Not even this six-foot-tall slab of meat park ranger whose muscles must be choking his few remaining brain cells.
Reinicke Best was at the end of his wits with these park visitors. Every year, they seemed to get worse. Less respect for the wildlife (no, you can't take a selfie with a grizzly bear). Less respect for the environment (no, this virgin old wood forest doesn't have a place for you to charge your phone). Less respect for the staff (no, I absolutely will not take your phone to get charged so you can take a selfie with a grizzly bear!). And then there was this newest visitor. Driving along without the common sense to watch where she's going, almost causing a car crash. He had a feeling she was trouble, the kind of trouble you'd have to keep a close eye on.
